The Corrupted Traveller is a passive NPC found in Ruined Teleporters in the Overworld.


A Corrupted Traveller always spawns at every Ruined Teleporter Frame, which generate underground in the Overworld.

If Ruined Teleporter Frames have been disabled in the configuration files by setting the Ruined Teleporter Frame Spawn Chance to 0, Corrupted Travellers will instead spawn naturally, similar to other roaming traders.


Corrupted Travellers never move far from their portal frames, and can usually be found standing on one.

Like most other structure-related NPCs, Corrupted Travellers will not despawn naturally unless they are outside of their natural dimension.

Bestiary Entry[]

The Corrupted Traveller is an ill-fated explorer from an unknown time, trapped in a incorporeal state. Through his rambling writings and much research it seems that he was once an adventurer that stumbled across a method of inter-dimensional travel, and spent much of his time travelling across the planes, documenting his experiences.

The circumstances in which he was afflicted with his current condition is unknown, but through his most-recently dated journal it can be inferred that he encountered something or someone that frightened him enough to destructively shut down his own portal frame and attempt to make re-use impossible. Attempts have been made to communicate with the traveller but his affliction prevents anything more than trance-like ramblings.

Other journals of his have been found scattered throughout the planes, which have revealed slightly more and contributed much to modern research on the various creatures and worlds encountered, but there is still much more to learn.

He can always be found adjacent to his destroyed portal frame, as he seems physically incapable of being separated from it.

  • According to Scimiguy, the Corrupted Traveller is an allegory for members of the mod's community who awaited a new update to the mod prior to him taking over as developer, and the obvious fatigue of the years-worth of waiting.[1]
