Forbidden and Arcanus

Forbidden and Arcanus adds a bunch of new magic themed items to Minecraft to make your world a little more mythical and mysterious. Most of the new items can be crafted with three new ores added with this mod: Arcane Crystal Ore, Runestone, and Dark Runestone.

There are 5 new sets of armor with matching tools. They range from about iron armor durability but go beyond diamond durability in protection. Plus they look pretty menacing.

This mod adds some intense new weapons as well like the arcane golden sword, the draco arcanus axe, and the draco arcanus scepter, which shoots powerful energy balls.

The soul extractor is also a neat tool that removes souls from soul sand. This will turn it into soulless sand and allows you to craft many different soul stone blocks! You can turn the blocks back into soul sand by right-clicking while holding the soul that came out of it.

There are also 3 new trees, Cherrywood, Mysterywood, and Edelwood. These will give you a ton of new wood blocks to build with.

As well as the Edelwood bucket that holds 4 times as much water as the normal bucket.

And there are a few new candle based light sources: the lantern and candelabras. The candelabras can be customized to hold 1, 2 or 3 candles!

This mod requires an additional API found here.

  1. Looks great! Where can we find some of the raw materials for these items? The documentation is a bit thin in this regard.

    For instance, where is Runestone and Dark Runestone found, or the Stellarite pieces?

    Thanks for a great mod!

    • Hey Eric! I’ve been doing quite a lot of research on this mod recently, and I’ve figured out some of your questions!

      Runestone is an ore you can find underground at y levels 0-20.
      Stellarite pieces can be found underground at around the same level. They are a lot rarer and explode when mined.
      Dark Runestone can be made by right-clicking a rune on a Runic Tenebris Core.
      A Runic Tenebris Core is crafted by right-clicking a Dark Nether Star on a Runic Tenebris Frame.

      Hope this cleared some of your questions!

  2. Is the Soul Extractor able to be made yet?
