I told Emmy to keep Winter Canadian's wrists tied firmly behind his back so he couldn't do any more ice magic. Then we looted him out, which is to say, we stole his stuff.
We found a diamond pickaxe, a diamond sword, a diamond spear, apples, bread, and mushroom stew on Winter Canadian. And we also found, (as I had hoped,) some Nether items: 8 pieces of Netherbrick, 2 pieces of Netherrack, and a single piece of Nether Quartz. Cloudless Sky pocketed the Nether Quartz, while I took the Netherrack.
"Emmy, Alyssa, and Cloudless Sky: keep an eye on Winter Canadian. Me and the others will head down and prepare his cell," I gave one last glare at Winter Canadian before me, Kyrak, Cloudy, Frost, and Pocket headed down to the mine.
We passed the thief's cell on the way down. He was sitting on his bed muttering crazedly. We began to carve out another cell nearby to thief's cell. In this one, however, I made a 1-block-wide fireplace set against one wall. After tunneling upwards a small ways, I turned and tunneled to my right a few blocks. Then I placed two torches, put down a few dirt blocks and a small water source, and then put in some small shrubs and plants. Since we couldn't have a chimney, (thanks to Herobrine,) I needed something to clean out the smoke so our prisoner wouldn't suffocate. I figured water and nature would probably do the trick.
After that, I climbed back down and placed a block of Netherrack. I hit it with my flint and steel, and bright flames immediately leaped from the surface.
