|“||Try not to lose your cool in the vast Desert Frontier. The remains of lost civilizations and once legendary beasts stand like pillars in the sand – far-flung guideposts for the well-equipped wanderer. Bring extra water, because if the giant waspiders don’t get you, the relentless sun will.||”|
Desert Frontier (also known to be called Abandoned Boneyard, Alkali Flats, and Desert of Secrets) is a Prime World Biome presented by the orange land with a “Frontier/Wild West” theme. It exists in any Adventure Worlds which are Desert Frontier World (Orange portal) and higher and can appear in small patches or massive chunks of land. The items that can be obtained here that are randomly generated are Bottles.
Desert Frontier biomes are displayed on the map as orange areas with cactus watermarks. This biome contains orange grass/sand (that gives Red Primal Blocks) and brown for dirt (which gives orange blocks respectively). There are smaller patches of grass and pebbles that can be broken to get Glim and Bombs.
This biome is made up of large bone structures, tall mesas, saloons, and steampunk structures to give it a "wild west" theme, and enemies include desert creatures such as undead miners, living cactus and occasionally steampunk robots like Steambot Drones and Gigas Minerbots.
This is the home of the Gunslinger.
It’s easy to lose your bearings in the vast Desert Frontier. The only landmarks for miles are remnants of ancient civilizations and massive bones of venerable creatures. Make sure to bring extra water and armor because if the giant scorpions and prickly cacti don’t get you the relentless sun will!
In these biomes, the sun beats down on baked red sand, and large natural sandstone formations jut from the ground. Natural growth, when it can be found, is stunted and shrublike. Massive skeletons of ancient megafauna litter the landscape, and the evidence of brave (but ultimately foolish) settlers’ attempts to tame this inhospitable land can be found from place to place. Decoration items from the Desert Frontier should be roughly “Wild West”-themed. Props appropriate in the hands of cowboys or desperados or found in a rickety saloon would all fit well here. Antique wooden clockwork objects of moderate complexity will also find a good home in the Desert Frontier.
Weapons from this biome should look appropriate for a standard Wild West setting, and should represent a higher level of technology than the more fantasy-themed biomes. Wood and basic metals are still the order of the day, but they can be used to construct inventive and charming antique clockwork weapons.
