Lavaland, by nature, is not a safe place. In fact, it's extremely inhospitable and full of creatures that want to kill, eat, or kill and eat you. Whether it's a gruesome fate from a not-so-friendly Lava Dragon or you manage to accidentally take a bath in molten rock, one wrong step and you're toast. This page serves as a guide to traversing this hellish landscape and maybe even coming out alive on the other end.

Lavaland has a Long History and was actually a thriving planet long ago. However, time has taken its toll and now it is an ashen expanse populated by only the most volatile and hardy creatures. It is primarily used as a source for raw materials and sending unwanted Enemies of the Corporation for Slave Labor. While not an extremely fun environment to be in, it is home to a plethora of artifacts and ruins open to your exploration and exploitation.


While covered in lava and buffeted on the hourly by Ash Storms, many sentient creatures still call Lavaland home. Some of them do not wish to be on Lavaland as they were trapped there on accident and others evolved to thrive in the landscape. Many of these inhabitants are willing to trade and work with you for the betterment of each party. Sometimes they just want to kill you. Whatever interaction you have with them, it certainly will be interesting.

Creature Description Notable Characteristics
Ash Walker
Ash Walkers are the tribal natives of Lavaland. These Unathi-esque lizard people are fiercely protective of their land, and will more often than not kill any trespassers. Use very primitive technology and do not require internals. They cannot speak Galactic Common. They can also run at heightened speeds.
Translocated Veterinarian
An animal doctor teleported to Lavaland by a bluespace anomaly. They are very ill-equipped to survive the harsh environment and will likely perish if they leave their hospital. Generally friendly or neutral and are well equipped with medical supplies.
Terrarium Diona
A Diona that has awoken after years of slumber in a preserved terrarium planted by someone or something a long long time ago. They are tasked with spreading life wherever they go. Have access to a fully stocked upgraded hydroponics/botany lab.
Beach Dome Denizens
Come catch some waves with me braah. These chill dudes and dudettes are enjoying the warm sunny day inside their beach biodome. Equipped with soda, space beer, and many donk pockets they're ready to soak up the sun. Very ill-equipped to deal with any threat. Has no more than sandals and basic internals.
Lavaland Hermit
Lavaland hermit.png
Accidently jettisoned from their station/ship through an escape pod they crashlanded in lavaland. They're barely clinging to life day to day and it seems like their situation is absolutely hopeless. Can be defensive if you enter their home uninvited.
Generic clown.png
Found in the Clown Biodome, these clowns are committed to their lifelong goal of spreading happiness and cheer to the far reaches of the galaxy. Even if it takes them to... unwelcoming places. Honk!
Generic shaft.png
Perhaps one of the most volatile sentient creatures in lavaland, if you're not a friend to them they will likely kill you. They serve the interest of Nanotrasen and mine the wastes for precious metals. Are well-equipped and often brandish high-tech mining equipment and powerful ancient artifacts stolen from the sacred wastes.
Free Golems
Golems are the souls of the dead encased in gemstone. They retain no memories of their previous lives, but retain the cunning, knowledge and personalities of those spirits. These golems were freed from servitude by a scientist they revere as The Liberator. In his infinite and divine wisdom, he set their clan free to travel the stars with a single declaration: "Yeah go do whatever." Are hard to kill and often have high-tech equipment.


Mob Description Notable Characteristics

A horrific being covered in ashen skulls with glowing red eyes. Will drop a corpse upon death Will summon flying skulls when fighting. Turns dead bodies into legions.

A eerie flying creature with red sinewy antlers sprouting from a large menacing eye. Shoots a ice beam that does cold damage and slows you down. Drops diamond ore and sinew upon being butchered. fairly neutral mob unless you come within one tile of it or attack it.

Environmental Dangers

Even if you avoid the various denizens and creatures of the wastes, the environment can kill you very easily. An unprepared crewmember or ash walker can easily perish in the harsh landscape.

Ash Storms

An eerie moan rises on the wind. Sheets of burning ash blacken the horizon. Seek shelter.

Due to the planets scalding hot climate and high winds, clouds of boiling ash is kicked up into the air. These clouds turn into massive storms that blanket the landscape a heavy layer of ash that can easily kill people. Only the sturdiest of equipment and exosuits can withstand an Ash Storm and it is very important to seek shelter under a roof during one.

Ash storms will subside after about a minute and after that, it is safe to go outside.


Lavaland's atmosphere is not safe for all beings. It is a low pressure, low oxygen environment and you require internals to traverse it, but not a space suit. Some beings, like Ash Walkers can live in this dangerous environment without the use of external equipment. Chasms


There are great big pits on the surface of Lavaland that go down for miles. You can fly or hop over them, you may even be able to escape them with the correct equipment. If you fall into one you won't be coming back. This includes items and any mobs that are thrown into it. Chasms will open up shortly after a tendril is killed.


The floor is literally lava in many places. Stepping on it will immediately ignite you and deal heavy burn damage, quickly killing if stood on for too long. Can only be traversed with mechs, lava boats, or while under the effect of items or abilities that give lava immunity. Fire resistance alone isn't enough to protect from the burn damage.
