Hell: A Survival Guide
As people are made up of mostly blood, Blood Rivers are a very common occurrence in Hell. These rivers present as slow to fast moving masses of blood seeking the lowest point in a topographical land system. They are often formed from the sliced open skin-land trails left by the Devils transportation system in Hell called The Sled, which will be explained further in the Chapter – The Sled. In more rare cases, large movements deep under the surface of Hell driven by expanding gas cause massive eruptions akin to volcanoes that project or seep blood from higher pressurized land points.

Your Mind and Memory
Your mind is arguably the most resilient of your organs in Hell. Hell assures this so that you will be able to fully experience torture, both physical and mental, no matter what it’s condition. For example, if you were to lose a piece of your skull, and with it a sizable portion of your brain, you will find that you still have access to your bodily functions, although it may be significantly or permanently disoriented.
Your Body: Why it is Important and How it Has Changed (Part 2)
As mentioned in previous sections, your body is the foundation for the pain and torture you will experience in Hell, but is also your greatest resource for survival in Hell. These ongoing sections will explain some of the basics of how your body will function in Hell, how to exploit these new functions, and finally repair/additions to your body.
Your Body: Why it is Important and How it Has Changed (Part 1)
Your body and the bodies that compose Hell are the only material things you will have to prostitute to your advantage. Therefore, if at all possible, and with your utmost resourcefulness, you must endeavor to keep your body intact and in relative working order for as long as possible.
A much less dangerous and more useful land construct is the Bone Enclave. This is an area where bone has separated from is user, most often torn away or dissolved while the person was within the bowels of Hell. Once in its pure form the bone merges when it comes into contact with other bone, reforming itself into huge masses, then it is jutted upwards from a large deposit within the substructure of Hell by way of flesh tectonics.
The Surface of Hell
The surface of Hell is mostly composed of skin (approx. 70%) the common name for this is skin-land. The skin-land is generally stiff, but it does flex and is pliable to the touch. When you walk on the skin-land, your foot will sink to about one quarter of an inch to as much as six inches into the flexing surface depending on the specific construction of an area. Although this may not seem to be a significant detail, when running in Hell (and there are many times when one runs in Hell) you will become tired quickly, much like if you were to run in loose sand. There may be occasions where the skin in a certain area is taught enough to provide a reactive bounce to your gait, which can make running easier. But conversely, there are also areas that are more friable, and you may puncture the skin-land sinking into the next layer, which is most often liquid fat, raw blood, or a tangle of capillaries. Breaking through the surface of Hell while running is NOT RECCOMENDED, as you will trip and most likely sink.

General Environment in Hell
Contrary to popular belief, the heat in Hell is not the main opposition to survival nor is there the constant combustion of fire. Although it is hot, Hell’s average surface heat rarely exceeds 120 degrees. This heat comes from two main sources: the ambient light from heaven that is converted into heat when it reaches the surface of Hell, and the radiated body heat from the millions of bodies Hell is composed of. Neither of these heat sources ever dissipates outside of the occlusive atmosphere of Hell, which is why the temperature reaches the heights it does.
The biggest problems facing God in this time are two-fold:
- People are completely inept at following the rules set forth to allow access to Heaven.
- Most people do not believe that they are going to Hell, and are therefore entirely unprepared when they arrive.
Unbeknownst to most, God is not interested in what interpretation you follow of His word. With very little, almost trivial variation, His core principles are the same from religion to religion. God allows, and even finds it endearing, that man has defined many iterations of His word both through culture and individual interpretation. But what He finds most interesting, and most to His dismay, is that even amongst all of these man-made rules, sub-rules, exceptions, and ceremonies, man still seems incapable of controlling his appetites to the point where he can put himself on a direct path to Heaven.
Hell: An Introduction
It is possible for you to survive in Hell long enough to be rescued. Hell is by no means a permanent stay; by all rights, it is a purgatory sentence. If you realize the error of your ways to God’s satisfaction, then He can, and will, attempt to save you. Unfortunately, as part of God’s bargain with the Devil, He has no divine power in Hell. Instead, only an Angel can rescue you after redemption. Due to the massive amount of people being sent to Hell and the defensive structures the Devil has created, this has become an extremely difficult task. The following guide serves as a resource for your time in Hell to ensure you last long enough to be rescued.
