Ruined House

Example of a Ruined House.

Ruined Houses are common structures generated at world creation in The Underworld. They are towers with several levels each, constructed with missing parts for a "ruined" look. Ruined Houses are built from Obsidian Brick or Hellstone Brick and Obsidian Brick Walls. They occur frequently, but only in the middle 50% of the Underworld. There are no Ruined Houses at the extreme left and right of the Underworld (the final 25% of the Underworld on each side). Ruined Houses are often partially (sometimes completely) flooded with Lava.

Ruined Houses commonly contain several Pots, Hellforges, Demon Torches, Obsidian Furniture items, Paintings, and decorative Banners. They also often contain locked Shadow Chests (nearly all Shadow Chests occur within or on top of Ruined Houses). Hellstone is commonly found among the Ash Blocks beside Ruined Houses.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The furniture found in ruined houses, with the exception of Demon Torches, is not dislodged by contact with lava, unlike most other furniture. These items can still be destroyed by throwing them into lava in item form.
