Forbidden Magic is a Mod in the Serendipity Modpack, Designed for use alongside Thaumcraft. Edit

What's ThaumCraft? It's like Tinkers Construct for adventurers.

Forbidden Magic adds two new tabs to the Thaumonomicon; the Apocrypha and the Tainted Arts. Most of the researches are in the Apocrypha, with only a few in the Tainted Arts. 
In the Tainted Arts, you start out with information about tainted lands. Other entries will unlock together with the Aprocrypha's entries. In the Apocrypha, you start out with the researches Nether Shards and Riding Crop. The Nether Shards informs you that seven new crystal shards are added - each named after one of the seven deadly sins, which are Envy, Greed, Gluttony, Lust, Pride, Sloth, and Wrath. These shards aren't mined, but are produced from various events occur in the Nether. These events are described in the Thaumonomicon. A Riding Crop is a device used to make mounts ride faster through pain. 

You initially have 3 entries available to be researched. In order to unlock most of the other entries, you must research Infusion, which is in the artifice section of the Thaumonomicon. From there, you can explore the wonders of Forbidden Magic..

Finally ThaumCrafters! A way to get besides hunting squids or growing those annoying squid plants! Edit

I present to you, The Umbral Rose! It spreads like a weed, and can be crushed into ink! Awesome for planting around your tiny hut, or planted in a REAL garden!(It grows on Grass, for you Gardeners.)
