Enchanting Items :sleep.gif:
New Blocks [/center]
Once you gain the god-weapons it won't work to it's full potential until it is enchanted with Ichor ( The gods' bloods)
The point of enchanted weapons is to make weapons more valuable and to give you a taste of the real thing.
How it will work in your crafting grid:
  
The enchanted weapon will remain enchanted for 128 uses (4 Ichor), or 32 uses (1 ichor).
Once you defeat the immortals they drop Ichor, their god weapon and also their block. However if you do try taking on a god and fail you will be sent to the Nether as a punishment. (as suggested by: Tanuki_Shiro)

Thanks to everyone who has help contribute to this mod/ has supported it![/center]
Extra posts.. (my reference)
PS:could you make an ancient egypt mod or something like that?
Sure i'll try to, it's been on my mind anyways :tongue.gif:
and for the nymphs, maybe there could be some variety, like
Naiads (springs and rivers)
Oceanids (the sea)
sorry if i get too annoying, i really like greek stuff
Or make it a unique/valuable item?
True, hm thanks, i'll try to change aphrodite's arrow :smile.gif:
haha i'm trying, I'm in need of a ton of help tho :tongue.gif:
OO interesting, thanks i'll add that in
OO that's a smart idea, haha np it really helps if you suggest so thanks.
For Medusa's head:
= Armor for the upper body with Medusa's head on it? (Notch=Medusa's head hehe)
= Makes a painting showing Medusa getting slaughtered?
^Is this what you were talking about?
and hmm, maybe you could wear medusa's head on top like a pumpkin and it makes you turn creatures into stone, but then Medusa's head would have to be VERY rare for this to happen.
Anyways, here are my contributions to the idea.
Cerberus: Spawns in the nether only, 5x your character size, very aggressive at sight.. Only way to calm him down is 10 bones, will not be tamed, just calmed
Demeter: A greek goddess of agriculture, if your crops are going great, and you have 50+ crops growing in one area, Demeter might come and grow them instantly (1 percent chance)
Ruined temples will randomly spawn, let's say 5 percent? Temples would be for a specific god
Poseidon for example
Temple would be located underwater, hippogriffs would be the guardians of this temple, and if you beat them, you will be rewared with a trident.
The trident would be able to tame all sea creatures, but it comes with a great curse!
Once a day, you will lose 5/10 of your hearts, and monsters will be attracted to you all of a sudden (this would be true for each temple's treasure)
Anyways take them seriously, or ignore
Also, you should add a hydra.
I love your suggestions O:
Yeah I was thinking about making it harder to get the 'god-weapons'. Thanks!
Thanks! I'll add those two in.
hippogriffs are air creatures, a better choice would be the ocean nymph, or hippocampi, which is halfhorse, and half fish, or the hydra suggested above.
AH crud, I got them confused!
My bad, I knew about Hippocampi, but the similarities are well too similar..
(You did not have to take your avatar off, if it was my fault, I'm sorry.. :sad.gif: )
thats one thing why i am looking forward to this mod.
btw, cant you make some mirror shield that, when equipped, can see whats behind you? so that you can kill medusa without looking directly at her? since the myth states that any man that looks directly into theeyes of medusa are turned to stone, wheras all things, like mirrors, or reflectable images, do not turn you to stone.
other than that, great job!
Scout:BY a lot of those darn skellies...and...and
I have a lot more Ideas for this anyways just to let you know!
*EDIT*: If you want to here my ideas and would allow me to help in anyway PM me :biggrin.gif:
Off-Topic: I am a Polytheist, haha, So I that means I believe in these Gods/Goddesses. Mythology is the BEST!!!
this would lag the game way to much, we could just shoot her with a bow and arrow, or drop her off a cliff
hahaha it's fine, a lot of people didn't like the avatar, it's fine :smile.gif:
Yes you may help, or anyone for that fact, I need a banner of some sort.
haha yes i'm trying to learn the language too. Sure just reply to this topic with the ideas you have it's much appreciated.
Cool, you would be a lot of help :biggrin.gif:
