This module adds the ability to store certain effects from mobs and apply onto the player.


Orb of Ankou adds the Corripio Shamir to obtain soul essence from mobs. Soul essence gathered from mobs contain a Pneuma which gives effects to Soul Shards and Orbs of Ankou. The effects are only applied when a Soul Shard or Orb of Ankou is in the player's offhand.

Soul Forge

Lighting a Soul Forge with flint and steel

A Soul Forge is created by placing 8 obsidian around a soul fire in the nether.[1] Any ritual performed using the Soul Forge consumes all items and spawns spirits which when killed drop the ritual resulting item.

Creating Soul Shards

Soul Shards are created in by throwing 13 Soul Essence into a Soul Forge with 55 glowstone dust and 39 blaze powder. Extinguishing the flame in the Soul Forge will reveal a Soul Shard. Holding a Soul Shard in your offhand gives the player the listed effect.

Crafting an Orb of Ankou

Custom Crafter

Fusing Pneumas

Pneumas can be fused with an Orb of Ankou by throwing 8 ghast tears, a Soul Shard, and the Orb of Ankou into a Soul Forge and placing wither roses in the surrounding area. The fusion ritual randomly converts a nearby Wither Rose into a Lily of the Valley. Once the ritual has completed, extinguish the flames to obtain the Orb with a newly applied Pneuma.


Any extraneous items used in a Soul Forge ritual are transformed into spirits. Excess consumed wither roses will produce a Withering area of effect cloud.
