Re: What would a literal "under-world" look like?
I like those ideas as well! I think you could do a cool combo one: The centripetal zone where things are held against the ground, and much larger hemispheres that they aren't. I would base it on the water to core circulation: Hot steam blasts off in big weather events and turns into vapor that is blown against the walls of the world, and then drips back to the core. The life in the areas outside the equator are built like coral reefs, with the life burrowing ever further into the rock and using calcium and other minerals from the rock to cement themselves down. Flying life forms occupy the reefs, hiding when steam blasts come out and hunting each other/eating the reefs themselves.

Weird twisty pillars and barnacle like designs that are immune to steam and resist erosion. Tentacled clinging organisms climb them, and humans have to rock climb hanging inverted if they want to traverse it.
