Stone tablets are ancient paintings that detail the history of ancient Minecraft civilizations. They contain some stories, prophecies, and sometimes guides that can help the player by giving them hints on what to do. You have a 30% chance of getting a stone tablet by putting a relic scrap in an analyzer.
They function like vanilla paintings in that they must be placed on a vertical surface and randomly choose between the different designs. This item has a history of being glitchy, with the item sometimes disappearing when it is taken off the wall.
Note: In 7.3, the prehistoric creatures depicted in some of the tablets were edited to match the newly updated models/textures.

Suddenly, a mysterious man in strange clothing appears. He uses a strange and powerful weapon that shoots bits of metal to help the citizens defeat the beast.
