See if you can get a ghast to fire a fireball at the portal, thus relighting it. That, or build yourself a chest to store your items and go kill yourself.

Is this a Jimi Hendrix joke?

you can only die to go back to the normal world.

I wasn't aware that ghasts could destroy obsidian. Can they?

But yeah, if some of your obsidian is gone and you don't have any more, you're gonna have to get killed. It's impossible to make obsidian in the nether, even with the right materials.

they can't. however, their fire can destroy that purple hazy stuff that lets you warp, and you have to relight the portal to get back through.

if you have iron, you still have a chance. gravel occasionally spawns in the nether, so you can get some flint and be fine.

if you have no iron and no fire, then you really shot yourself in the foot :(
try to get the ghast to refire your portal, or die.

Also, when you punch/reflect ghast fireballs, they go where your cursor's pointing. You can stand so you have a view of the portal, sidestep a fireball and then punch it at the portal at the appropriate time, if you have good reflexes.

If you have 12 planks, make a WB and a chest. Throw anything of value.

If all you have is stuff like stone tools then just let a ghast kill you.

I had this happen to me. I went back to get my stuff, and for whatever reason instead of relighting my portal it built another portal. Obsidian farming?
