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. "


When you die, all your lost items are kept in a tombstone  and you receive a Grave's Key allowing you to know the path to your grave (this key can be enchanted to be able to directly teleport to your grave and disappears automatically if the grave doesn't exist anymore).

You just need to click the grave, to automatically equip your armor and recover your lost items.
Hint : to have a tombstone, the rule keepInventory needs to be set to false, and you need at least one item on you (or a drop nearby)

The second part of the mod focus on some magic items requiring Grave's Soul (look at Decorative Graves), and allowing some features related to death and dimensional teleportation (also in commands). This allows to customize the mod with in-game content instead of config options. (example : cancel the xp loss can be done in the config, but it's better to set it with a loss like 25-50% and use the magical scrolls to preserve it)
The mod work fine on server, supports minecraft version 1.8.9 to 1.12.2 and has translations for english & french. (my main language is french)

Check the config file to see all the custom features, Java 8 is required

Grave Simple in Corail Tombstone  Grave Cross in Corail Tombstone


Release 3.3.0 is the only release for this month, the issue support is also disabled for the same period (except for real bug)
Coming changes :

  • the Compendium : some informations about tombstone accessible via the gui of knowledge of death or by clicking some words in the chat (each info is related to several infos allowing a coherent discovery of the content)
    -> i'm doing it in french with the maximum of informations about any behavior and will see after for the english translation
      Compendium in Corail Tombstone (in progress)
  • cooldown to reset the perks (config for the time any way ;) )
  • creative players can change their perks as they want without the need to reset them
  • new Perk "Grave Digger" allows to dig faster with shovel, and give a chance to find grave's dust
    -> if the option decayTime is set to never end (the time for a grave to be unlocked to all), this perk also allows to open graves of players having a level in knowledge of death below the level in grave digger (
    it's a way to clean the graves of new players)
  • corrects the display of the cooldown of some items (the seconds)
  • several adjustements for the bonus of the perk "Ghostly Shape" (as it's one of the less interesting in my opinion actually), but the changes aren't completely defined for now

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 your chance (thundering was required in old versions)
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).
In the current beta, you can decrease your perks with right click to get the points back, but in the release, you'll need to use the ankh on a soul to reset your perks.
