About DarkMythos

Imagine you're excavating an area for a new house and suddenly a book appears and thunder booms from the sky. You've just found a lost spell book but only the gods know what kind of spell book it will be.

Will it be Demeter's Spell of Botanical Maturity? Hephaestus' Spell of Diamond Touch? Feather Touch or Creature Thief? Or any of dozens more?

Pick up your spell book quickly before someone else takes it, and store it for later. When you're ready to use it, follow its instructions on use but beware: The Gods have also cursed some of the spell books but the only way to know is to activate the spells.

If you do find a cursed spell book, pray that it's a minor curse - like a few health points lost or poison. For the truly unlucky, your spell book may contain the ultimate curse - a brutal death.


How to Use

Spell books come from digging in grass/dirt, sand/gravel, they fall from cut logs and leaves, or from stone. Some even fall from killed entities. When they do, you'll see a chat notice, hear thunder, and see an enchanted book fall.

The spell books will give an idea on what they do by their own content. We're working on adding instructions to each. However, must will be activated with a left-click on something they apply to.


  • Demeter - God of Horticulture/Botany
  • Artemis - Goddess of wilderness, the hunt, creatures
  • Hephaestus - God of fire, metalworking, stonemasonry, sculpture and volcanism

  • Hades - God of the undead, riches, and the afterlife
  • Apollo - God of music, healing, plague, the sun, prophecies, poetry, and archery
