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 1-64 glowstone dust and 1-64 blaze powder.[2] 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 3-16 ghast tears[3], a Soul Shard, and the Orb of Ankou into a Soul Forge. Once this is done, particles will appear in a 13x13 area around the forge. The player must place wither roses where the particles are in order for the forge to consume its power and transform the wither rose into a lily of the valley. After it has transformed 3-16 wither roses[4], the ritual will be complete. 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.
