Description Tags

This is a mod for Minecraft Forge, so it will not work without it!

What it does:

This little mod adds four simple items to the game: The Lore Tag, the Description Tag, the Warrior Tag and the Butcher Tag.
As their name suggests, they are used to add lore and descriptions to something, specifically, items.
The Lore Tag uses vanilla's lore system, adding purple flavour text in the items tooltip.
The Description tag is more advanced and allows for formatting and different colours, but uses features added by the mod to display that.
The Warrior and Butcher Tag both track the kills performed with the tagged item. The Butcher Tag tracks the kills for every living entity, the Warrior Tag only for mobs.
Finally, it adds a recipe to Name Tags. This is the same one Tinkers Construct or DiyoTweaks adds and all inspiration and credit goes to them. It's pointless for that thing to be dungeon loot only ^^

Who it is for:
Casual players who want to add a little variance to their items.
Players who want to show off how epic their gear is and how deadly their weaponry.
Players who think their dragonscale helmet* needs some witty remark.
*sold separately
Mapmakers who don't want to use an external editing program for every item. (Because the lore added with tags stays visible in vanilla Minecraft, so you can use this mod to fill your reward chests with lore-rich gear!)

Where do I get it?!

Q: How do I install this again?
- A: Like every forge mod, it goes into the "mods" folder.
Q: Will you add ______?
- A: Unlikely. I consider this mod "done" and I wanted to keep it small and simple. Feel free to shout out your ideas before they overflow your brain, but I doubt I will add it.

Legal Stuff
This mod is publicly available. I would kindly ask that no one monetizes this mod. Feel free to decompile it and take code from it, but be so kind as to tell others where you got it.
You have permission to use this in a modpack. If you want, you can inform me about it, but you don't need to ask for permissions first.

Credit for the Name Tag recipe and the packet-handling in 1.7.2 and 1.7.10 goes to the SlimeKnights of Tinkers Construct (check them out, they are great guys!)
Inspiration and critic was supplied by 'The Skype Guys' (you know who you are ^^)
