Constructs an inscribed gravestone, with a buried inventory chest, wherever a player dies.


  • Generates a gravestone at the location of a player's death.
  • The gravestone will generate an inscription displaying the player's name, date of death and game session time.
  • A "Treasure Chest" will generate beneath the grave containing the deceased player's inventory and armor items.
  • Gravestone elements will only replace "natural" blocks such as dirt, sand, grass, gravel, netherrack, etc. This may be turned off in config.yml.
  • Acts as a useful indicator, especially in SMP games, where players may gain better knowledge of exploration attempts and history within the game.
  • Configurable options, Permissions and WorldGuard support.


Use config.yml to apply custom settings to available Gravestone options.
