Denizens of the Permafrost expanse have a frosty attitude (and an ice chip on their shoulder). If you can excuse their chilly demeanor, there’s a lot of beauty (and treasure!) to be found in the snow. Just be wary of hypothermia, or you might start seeing robots and spaceships, too!

Permafrost (also known to be called Frozen Wastes, Icy Hills, and Dead of Winter) is a Biome presented by the icy cold Wasteland theme. It exists in any Adventure Worlds Permafrost world (blue portal) or higher and can appear in small patches or massive chunks of land. The items that can be obtained here that are randomly generated are Bottles as well as Glacial Shards.

Permafrost biomes is displayed on the map as a white biome with a watermark pattern of a snowflake patterned within the area of the map. This biome consists of snow blocks that drop Primal Blue Blocks for dirt and Grey for stone. Unlike most biomes, there are no signs of grass that would give players Glim.

This biome is made up of large scale frozen structures to give it a "snow and frost filled" world to Trove. The Permafrost are home to many different frozen themed monsters with a few mobs originating from the Cursed Vale.

This is the home of the Ice Sage.


The Permafrost is so cold its denizens are encased in ice. At least, that’s what one grizzled explorer said who claims to have visited its frigid landscapes. Most think he’s crazy, though, because he said there were robots and spaceships, too. Glacial Shards are found only in this area.

Rumor has it that these abandoned spaceships carried an alien race which was called "The Icelanders". They always carried some necklaces made of ice. It is said that the ancient Trovians thought that they were hostile, so they imprisoned them in Primal Blocks and scattered them around Permafrost. They also say that their remains have long been rotten but pieces of their Ice Necklaces are still intact, trapped in these blocks. Who would believe that though? It's just a rumor after all.

Snow-covered ice coats the landscape in the Frozen Tundra. Depending on which sort of tundra you find yourself in, you could be equally as likely to see towering robotic structures or crashed spaceships as you would more expected features, like ice formations. Decoration items from the Frozen Tundra should fit into one of two main themes: robotic or wintery. Thematic overlap is fine too! Wintery objects could range from ice sculptures to a doghouse-sized igloo to snow-covered versions of objects from other biomes. Robotic decoration is pretty open-ended, but it’s important that it has a some flavor or style… think Futurama by way of a voxel editor.

Weapons from this biome should be themed along the same lines as the decorative objects. Icy or frozen versions of traditional weaponry work well here, as well as weapons that would only fit in science-fictiony or futuristic settings.
