KragTheDark has made a wiki for the mod content (awesome!). http://the-empyrean-...wiki/Main_Page.
Client Installation Instructions: (Follow any one of these three methods to install the mod. You must have a clean minecraft install. THIS MOD IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH FORGE or any other mods. Please give it a chance though, the incompatibility is due to the massive and pervasive changes the mod makes to the game, and not for lack of trying.)

Mod Review by FuriousDestroyer
This is a total conversion mod based on Chinese mythology for Minecraft that aims to make combat as relevant to the game as mining and building are in vanilla mode. The goal of this mod is to provide a unique experience without breaking the original game. To that end, the mod exists as a new game mode that is available at world creation, and all other existing game modes should work as they do in the vanilla client. While the mod was designed and balanced with multiplayer in mind, The SMP server mod is not quite ready yet, but should be in the very near future. Multiplayer servers can run the modded server jar to host a game with this mode, and modded clients will be able to connent to vanilla servers or modded servers without issue. This mod is not designed to be compatible with any other mods, and any such compatibility is purely coincidental and not supported.
This mod is a work in progress. There are more features planned that will flesh out the mod to be the full experience I want it to be, but I know that it needs testing to be stable and I would like the community's feedback on the existing features so I have more time to tweak and balance. I cannot guarantee that your worlds will not break between versions, and I know there are a few features not added yet that will require new worlds for you to access them, but I will try to make sure that your existing worlds are not reset or broken by updates as much as possible.
I am a one-man team, so don't expect fast or frequent updates. This mod is huge, and took a long time to get to the point it is at. I am open to suggestions, and I will continue to make updates, but please remember that I am the only person working on this project and be patient with me. I have a full time job and a family, this is just something I am doing in my spare time that I want to share with you all.
There are more features in this mod than it would be feasible to list, so I have made a video highlighting the major features outlined below.
