|A database corruption happened during wiki software upgrading. The wiki had to be rolled back to a backup from 2022. We are working on restoring critical pages. Sorry for the inconvenience.
There can also be a starter village, which is not random.
When a new avatar spawns using the Reach for the Stars spawn type, they will start in a village.
The village works as a kind of safe haven until the avatar is ready to go off on their own.
There can only be one village on a world at a time, but the village may "move" to where the avatar is if it is too far away.
The villagers are part of the indigenous population that live in the villages.
The village elder normally reside in one of the village tepees.
Only applies to Reach for the Stars
The stargazer can be found at the outskirts of the village, staring up at the stars.
Talking with the stargazer can confirm the presence of an asteroid.
The villagers may have primitive equipment and tools for sale, but they will not take money, they will only trade for other commodities of equal or greater value.
For more information, see the Trade page.
Villages start out by being neutral to everyone. Avatars develop a reputation with a village that affects how villagers react to them, including attacking them on sight if they have been deemed as enemy.
They will also remember those who have done them harm, so it is best not to attack them without superior weaponry and alternatives for survival.
Their hatred toward enemies wears off over time. Actions by the avatar, such as killing wild animals and healing villagers, improves reputation with them.
