"Hey, this isn't the asteroid!"
Lavaland is the new primary workplace for Shaft Miners, not to be confused with another dangerous plasma rich area.
After exhausting all the
hostile wildlife minerals on the asteroid, Nanotrasen scoured space around the station for a new source for that sweet, sweet Plasma. Unluckily for you, they found a young planet almost completely covered in lava and a host of deadly creatures. By that, we mean there are literal real fucking dragons roaming around. Did we mention the ash storms? There are ash storms as well. Don't forget to grab a bluespace shelter capsule. You're definitely gonna want one of those.
Welcome to Lavaland.

Hazards[edit | edit source]
Lavaland is full of natural hazards. Ash Storms are the most prominent hazard, these storms occur on a regular basis and will deal constant and heavy burn damage to anyone unfortunate enough to be exposed to the storm, fortunately you will get a warning moments prior to a ash storm's arrival, giving you time to seek shelter.
Lava presents itself as the next most common hazard, walking into lava will deal massive burn damage to you. Even worse, the wildlife are immune to lava and can wade freely into it. However lava is very obvious and thus easy to avoid.
The final threat are chasms, these are rare but extremely deadly and hard to spot. Walking into one will instantly kill you as you fall to your death! Watch your step.
Gases and Pressure[edit | edit source]
Lavaland has a random gas mix every round, requiring you to use internals. The pressure is low enough to give you a pressure warning HUD icon, but it's not low enough to deal actual pressure damage. The temperature is random as well but stays in levels safe for humans.
Sentient Life[edit | edit source]
Lavaland is surprisingly full of other sentient lifeforms, of varying hostility.
Ashwalkers: A tribe of hostile Lizardmen that worship tendrils. They don't need to breathe but they can't use guns or wear shoes.
Lifebringers: A group of podmen who live in a seed vault with advanced hydroponics equipment. Great for people new to botany!
Golems: A band of Golems who arrived by ship that live by their creed of doing whatever.
Stranded hermits: Individuals who arrived by escape pod. They live in a makeshift shelter.
Beach bums: Dudebros who chill in a beach biodome.
Translocated Vet: A veterinarian who has somehow, along with his/her entire hospital, been teleported into a fiery hellscape.
Lavaland Syndicate: You are a Syndicate agent, employed in a top secret research facility developing biological weapons. Unfortunately, your hated enemy, Nanotrasen, has begun mining in this sector. DON'T abandon the base without good cause. Do not let the base fall into enemy hands!
