The Florid Postern is a naturally spawning Structure in Endless and Survival modes in Don't Starve Together. It is a portal that marks the spawn point for a server. If the server is set to Endless Mode, it can be used by a dead player to resurrect at a cost of 25% of their maximum Health (this penalty can be reversed by use of Booster Shots).
Spawn Mechanics[edit | edit source]
When a new world is generated, one Florid Postern is created in the overworld and the caves (if it's enabled). It remains stationary throughout the game. When a new player joins the server, the open space of the portal will light up slowly and then fade back to normal, revealing the new player. All players will spawn from the portal that was generated during the start of a new world. If a new player spawns during dusk or night, the portal will create a small circle of light (about the same radius as a medium Campfire) that lasts until daytime, to prevent death by darkness.
Regrowth Mechanics[edit | edit source]
In Endless mode, the game will check to see if there are any players within a radius of a little over 60 ground tiles around the Florid Postern every 30 to 60 seconds. If there are no players within that radius, the game will then check to see if there are any basic resources within a radius of a little over 15 ground tiles around the Florid Postern. The basic resources that it checks for can be split into four categories; flint, twigs, grass, and berries. In the flint category, there is only Flint. In the twigs category, there are Saplings, Twiggy Trees, and Twigs. In the grass category, there are Grass Tufts, Grass Gekkos, and Cut Grass. In the berry category, there are Berry Bushes, and Juicy Berry Bushes. If none of the resources in a given category exist within the 15 tile radius, the game will spawn one to three items from that category within the radius.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Florid Postern took the place of the Jury-Rigged Portal when the game left Early Access. Its functionality is the same, though the characters' reactions to it are different.
- If the Postern is deleted with console, new players will still spawn at the spot the portal used to be.
- In the colony game Oxygen Not Included, another game by Klei, the sound of the portal is shared with the building Space Heater.
- According to the flavor text for the Florid Postern Portrait Frame, the Postern works by joining the survivors' dimensions.
- Charlie as of A New Reign has been shown to manipulate a form of shadow fire, which is reflected in the Postern's black flames on its columns. Willow even notes that the Postern's vines "coil away from [her] lighter" as if they are also made of the shadow fire.
Bugs[edit | edit source]
- The Ruins soundtracks are played when music events are triggered near the Florid Postern in the Caves.
