  • The Rust Wells have been entirely revamped. The dungeons are now based on fulcrete wells that are dug into the earth.
  • Added a mechanism to allow flight in strata beneath the surface when there is sufficient open sky above you.

  • Made a small adjustment to the creature tier calculation.


  • We're in the process of refactoring our systems for populating maps and creature inventories. Creature and equipment distributions may have changed somewhat (but not drastically).
  • Humanoid creatures, particularly snapjaws and goatfolk, now rarely spawn with a wider range of equipment.
  • Snapjaw scavengers now occasionally spawn without equipment.


  • We're in the process of retiring encounter tables in favor of population tables. This may affect mods.
  • Creatures that were previously equipped via encounter table equipment builders are now implemented as multiple creature objects with the AggregateWith tag (ex: Snapjaw Scavenger).
