    i think this should spawn in the soul sand valleys cause the soul sand valleys have a kind of dark graveyard feeling

    I think it would be a great idea, especially if minecraft had a mobile/hand held lightsource like a lit torch being able to be carried in your offhand.

    These could probably be used in the nether forests to make them even spookier. (I don't have the nether update yet but I have seen videos for it)

    I like the name Shadowstone

    This could make soul sand valleys have an eerie feel to them since the rest of the nether is lit up. It would also be extremely useful in making maps.

    I think this is a great idea, not only could it add a lot more contrast to the nether through having large chunks of Darkstone clumped together, it would be great for builds and maps as well. You could make a specific corner or hallway in a map very dark and hard to see in without having to force a fog effect, or have a huge revealing effect by covering everything in Darkstone and then removing it and showing the map go to you.

    I like this idea

    but how about the name Eclipsestone or Shroudstone/Shroudrock

    Sounds pretty interesting. Maybe you could use this to brew a blindness potion?

    Nice idea, could maybe give wither effect if touched or slow the player or entities like soul sand?

    How would you tell the diameter of the area it prevents mob spawning? Since there's it doesn't emit light, I'm wondering how you could tell without googling it or something

    If the function of "darkstone" would be to act as kind of a dimmer, wouldn't "dimstone" or something like that be a better name? Kinda like how glowstone is the name of the block's function plus the word stone

    Maybe for the name "ShadeStone"

    Sound interesting... A dark theme gameplay could really give a horror experience for players. I would also like to suggest changing the texture of Ancient Debris, they look like chocolate covered swiss roles...!

    Sounds good. It could be very useful for making things like mazes with dark corridors without running the risk of a mob spawning

    The Recipie should be Sea Lantern surrounded by netherite, and can only be mined by Diamond Picks

    The block should be rare, or maybe it should be crafteable with ancient debris

    Inversely, it could be placed to create a shadowed area, even in sunlight

    This could also be added to grimstone in the new snapshot to make the deep dark darker (but it would stop mobs so it might not work)

    Edit: didn’t realise it spawns everywhere below y0, maybe a skulk block could have it
