Hey guys!

If you're reading this, then you have probably already downloaded my Midrealm mod, and you are now thinking, "Cool! So... now what?". If you're stumped on what to do, then you're in luck! This guide is a complete walkthrough on the Midrealm mod, complete with crafting recipes, background information, news, and more! So, let's get started!


Welcome to Midrealm!

With the Midrealm mod, I am aiming to provide you with a complete RPG experience in Minecraft. I have a lot of work to do, but I am trying to update it with new content as often as possible. If you are interested in finding out more about what will be added over time, then please see the "Planned Features" section.

Midrealm changes your entire Minecraft experience. It is set in a fantasy world, which is only limited by your imagination. Although there are lore-specific items in the game, there is not currently any set story. So you are free to create your own RPG worlds!

Background Story
As mentioned in the introduction, there is no set story as of the Alpha versions of Midrealm, however I may change this much later on in the mod. I am planning on adding mobs over the next few weeks, which will sort of add to the story. These will include Orcs, Dwarves, Elves, Alvarii, and Drakurin!

Midrealm currently adds 6 new ore types into the world; steel, orachite, dwarven metal, elvarum, alvarite, and drakuthil. They are in the order of rarity, with steel being the easiest to find, and drakuthil being the hardest. Each time you successfully mine an ore block, you will receive pieces of raw ore, which can be smelted into metal ingots. I am planning on adding a "smelter", over time, such as the ones that you find in Skyrim. This will then be used to smelt your raw ores.

Weapon Parts
Midrealm adds a brand new weapon creation mechanic into your game world- weapon parts! Although they are not fully implemented yet, they are currently used in the crafting table to save space. Eventually, I am going to be adding a custom weapon mechanic into the game, which will allow you to create your own custom weapons. However, that is a verylong way away.

Midrealm adds around 70 new weapons into the game (as of Alpha v1.0.5), which are made up of 10 various weapon types; daggers, shortswords, broadswords, longswords, greatswords, swords, war axes, maces, battleaxes, and warhammers. You can forge each of these weapon types in 7 different types of metal; iron, steel, orachite, dwarven metal, elvarumm, alvarite, and drakuthil. I am considering adding spears into the game, but I will need to make larger texture base models for this to be possible. To learn how to craft these weapons, please see the "Crafting Guide" section.

Crafting Guide
Decorative Blocks- The stone found in the various biomes can be crafted into many different decorative blocks. You can try different patterns; these blocks are made only from the biome stone, by placing them into the crafting table. For example, a carved block can be made by placing four stone blocks (not vanilla stone, the stone added by the mod), into the four corners of the crafting table. Another stone block should be placed in the middle slot of the crafting table. You will receive 4 carved stone. Experiment with different combinations, to discover the rest.

Planned Features
I have a very large amount planned for Midrealm, and I can only give you a few of the details at the minute. However, planned for the next few weeks, are 5 new mobs, more weapons, and hopefully some more crafting blocks (smelters, weapon workbenches, armour forges, etc.). There is a considerable amount of more planned features, but you will be notified of them when they are nearer to release.

IF they're not working, then I'm guessing that you're reading them wrong- sorry that I've had to write the recipes out, it is a little confusing, but I'm planning on using images eventually :( Try reading through them again, and tell me if there's anything that doesn't work :)
