Corail Tombstone

" Corail Tombstone keeps you from losing your belongings on death, with many features of survivability and dimensional teleportation, in a medieval fantasy atmosphere related to the grave's souls. "


Tombstone handles your death in minecraft by providing over 100 config options, multiple features (like soulbound enchantment, auto-equip, the Grave's Key allowing to see the grave at a distance and teleport to the grave once enchanted), and several compatibilities between mods.

On the same time, it introduces a slow perk tree : the Knowledge of Death, and a magic system based on some enchantable items with the help of the Souls haunting the Decorative Graves and waiting a way to be freed for their eternal sentence.

There're several commands related to death and dimensional teleportation.
he mod works fine on server and has translations for english & french. (my main language is french)

The decorative graves

The decorative graves are special blocks with a fog particle only during the night.
They can be harvested with shovel/pickaxe and can be engraved with the anvil (and an iron lingot in the second slot).
The decorative graves can be haunted by a soul, depending on the chance set in the config.
The soul stays until used and allows some enchants like magic scroll/tablet, or upgrade the grave's key.

Hint : The advancement/achievement gives you rewards, nearly enough to build a decorative grave.

Ankh of Pray
 : allows to pray on a grave to earn some knowledge points, and can also be used on a soul to reset the perks tree (the soul is consumed)

The Knowledge of Death

Players earns knowledge points each time they use a grave's soul to enchant an item, when they free a soul from a receptacle, by praying near a decorative grave with a special item called Ankh of Pray (with a cooldown of 6 in-game hours), or by accomplishing the tombstone advancements.
Theses points allow you to unlock some perks in a special gui "Knowledge of Death" (the keybind in "misc" is not defined by default).
The perks are small bonus related to all the features of tombstone, instead of providing them by default (some of them will be displayed based on what is allowed in the config).

Knowledge points to reach the next level : (4 * next_level) - 2

Hints : advancements can reward knowledge points with a custom function
-> the syntax is "rewards": { "function": "tombstone:knowledge//amount/1" }

The Compendium
