Have you ever died unexpectedly on Towny and was afraid your stuff would be lost? Well donโ€™t fret any further! The introduction to graves has changed the way for players who died and gives them a chance to get back to their stuff without it despawning.


When you die by anything/anyone on Towny a grave will be created for you upon death. The grave will show how you died, the player name, the date and a time limit for the player to get their grave before it breaks and is left on the ground.

Along with a grave being created the player is able to find their grave coordinates via chat along with the world they died in incase they accidentally tossed out the compass they received.

Time Limit For Graves

Keep in mind, you have only 3 hours to collect your grave! This means after the 3 hour time limit is up the grave will disappear and your items will be left on the ground; leaving you to only have a 5 minute timer (via vanilla minecraft rules) to get your items before other players retrieve them.

Lava/Void Graves:

Dying in the void or dying in the lava can be a scary time for those who have stuff they don't want to lose. Luckily enough, after dying in those circumstances your grave spawns in the nearest safe location along with giving you a compass guiding you to that location.

This way you wonโ€™t lose your stuff to the void or have to worry about your stuff burning in lava.

Collecting your Grave

When going to collect the grave you can shift + click on it allowing the items to be placed back in an orderly position along with your armor being placed on. You can also click on the grave and bring up its inventory so you can place the items youโ€™d like into your inventory in the positions you prefer.

Items Received via Graves


When you die you are given a compass with coords to your death location. This allows the player to find their grave in the given time and collect their items comfortably. The compass will disappear once the grave has been collected.


The obituary is a marker for what happened when you died and your death coordinates. The obituary shows the cause of death, date, the amount of items you had in your inventory, along with the exp and location of your death.

You could sell your obituary to other players as a joke, throw it out (using /trash or burning it in lava), or save it as a memoir of the time you died.
