a lot of stuff! seems cool! but the images on the text are not showing

I recommend using Pinterest, and while your pin is created, just open pinned image in new tab. I use that for sharing photos and that works great - and Google Drive/DropBox failed me many times in such cases.
Either way, that mod looks cool! Though textures for some mobs would be nice to be more detailed, but the rest seems really great ^^

Yeah, day before seeing Arcaneum I submitted my mod to MOTW, but after seeing that I thought "it will win, my mod is nothing compared to this", haha. And honestly, I wouldn't be mad, that's really deserving MOTW and I keep my fingers crossed for it
