This mod is for anyone who would like an alternative method for getting items that are from mob drops and from the Nether.
Are you tired of making mob farms and want something new? Do you want to play in peaceful mode but still get all the items? Do you want a fun, safe and enjoyable mod (this mod is animal friendly) for younger kids? This may be the mod for you.
This is not intended to be a serious archaeology mod. It is simply implemented with an archaeological theme to make it fun and interesting.
