Quote fromMega's suggestion doesn't really seem like a joke at all, especially if you consider Coros' Pet mod. In it, you used a dominion rod to take control of mobs, even hostile ones.
Mega's zombie staff would essentially act as a dominion rod specialized toward zombies.
You could rationalize the item as either enticing zombies with the brain on the staff [zombies love them some brains :smile.gif: ] to do your bidding, or just (somehow) channel one's will through the brain-staff to control zombies.
However, might I suggest adding some other, more difficult to obtain materials into that staff recipe?
redshrooms being redstone, the ham being the brain, and the white blocks being emtpy slots
i re=read the post and realized where my mistake was, i thought that he was implying that one saff would make all zombies nice and follow you/ do your bidding. i would say 2 zombies per staff.
but this is sort of getting out of hand, i never liked the suggestions that started out small and sweet, but turned into 1 simply obtainable item that would do everything and could be crafted into a hundred things.
in minecraft items have only a few purposes, thus diversity
