This Mod isn't dead yet! I'm planning to start updating it again, and change the name as there's some miniature tabletop game with the same name. Here's the a roadmap:


Soon: 0.6.0 - General Cleanup (A few IDs will change, but shouldn't be too bad, just backup, Revamp Volcanic Wastes (again), New mobs, 1.18.2 Port, Nether Biome

Soonish 2023: 0.7.1 - 1.19.2 Port, Geckolib (Maybe), Ghost Deer Boss Revamp, Fishing

Edit: Rescheduled goals, no more 1.16.5 update.

Edit: Waiting till next MCreator Release to get biomes to properly generate



Adventures and Adversaries

Adventures and Adversaries is a mod that adds several new biomes to your world, with blocks as well as mobs to inhabit them.

Currently The mod adds 5 new biomes and 5 new mobs, with new plants and blocks in these biomes, and a new boss!


The Deadlands

The deadlands are dry plains, devoid of life besides the old tree husks that still remain. A new type of wood can be found there, as well as dead leaf carpets.

The Volcanic Wastes

The volcanic wastes is a desolate land filled with lava, blackstone, and basalt. Be careful not to take a wrong step and burn to a crisp. Pockets of ash are scattered throughout, with strange ash flowers that can be grown. Find Sulfur and Ash Stone in the depths beneath this biome, but watch out for dangerous lava and magma  pockets that spawn!

The Dark Depths

The dark depths are ocean beds devoid of life besides mysterious orb plants, whose fruit is said to have value in brewing. Lodged into its floor is mechanical debris, which contains a small amount of diamond for lucky ones.

The Darkest Depths

The darkest depths are the dark depths older sibling, thousands of years old with ancient, mutated orb plants, and bleached sea grass that somehow managed to survive.

The Autumn Arboretum

The Autumn Arboretum is a biome forever in autumn, with deer racing through the colorful leaves, and with strange statues littered throughout it...


The Mechanical Mimic

The mechanical mimic is a distant relative of the shulker which mimics mechanical debris at the bottom of the dark depths. When disturbed, it will emerge from its shell and quickly kill all but the most prepared adventurers.

The Risen

The risen are skeletons' ghostly counterpart, dropping materials for a scythe, and spawn when a skeleton type mob dies in The deadlands.

The Deer Family

Deer roam the forest of the Autumn Arboretum, and a ghostly variant can be summoned from breaking a statue head found deep in the forest.


The Orb Plant

The Orb Plant can be found in the Dark Depths and Darkest Depths biomes. When harvested, they can drop bleached fibers, Orb Fruit, and Immature Or Fruit, which can be planted to grow a new plant. It will grow for a number of blocks until a mature orb forms and a bloom is made at the plants base.

Ash Flower

The Ash Flower is found in the Volcanic Wastes, and can bloom, where it can then be right clicked to harvest sulfur. Plant one by right clicking an Ash Block with a Sulfur Shard.


Mechanical Gear and Mechanical Wheel and Axel

These items are dropped by mechanical debris found in the dark depths and can be made into the stylish mechanical facade blocks, and eventually new items in an upcoming update...


Gelatin can be smelted from Orb Fruit and can be turned into Gello, which is a totally healthy food.


This ghostly substance is dropped by Risen and can be made into the new Ghostly Scythe.

Sulfur Shard

Mine Sulfur Ore to acquire this and craft it into Gunpowder or plant it to make an Ash Flower.

Bleached Fiber

Bleached Fiber is harvested from Orb Plants and can be turned into a lot of string.

Orb Fruit

Harvested from Orb Plants, turn this spherical fruit into Gelatin or brew it into a potion.


Wastelands of Baedoor enchantment and nether avoider) from Wastelands of Baedoor.

Looks really nice after first look! The one thing I would love to suggest is to make resources renewable/farmable. That always make mod a lot more interesting for me, and yours is already in that list :D
Also, is that Mechanical Mimic some kind of automaton/machine? If so, I could have neat proposition for you... ^^

Good point. Now that I think about it, renewable resources are important, so I'll make them farmable. The mechanical mimic is more of a sea creature using a metal shell it found, and it's supposed to be a first taste of more mechanical enemies I would like to add to the mod.

I see you added farming mechanics, yay! Just downloaded new version of mod, I'm still yet to find these new biomes, but I'm so happy!

And about that proposition - if you add more mechanical enemies in the future, I would happily see cross-compatibility feature between A&A and my mod! (my mod adds enchantment dealing more damage for mechanical entities)
So if you would be interested, just let me know, I will explain everything.

Nice ^^ the only thing you need is to set NBT logic tag "automaton_type" to "true" after your mechanical entity spawns.
If you want to test that, newest snapshot of my mod uploaded here supports this already (enchantment is called "Dismantle" and adds 1.25 damage per level, up to 6.25 on level V)
