Version 1.1 Don't Starve Vanilla, Reign of Giants, and Shipwrecked

Version 1.2 Don't Starve Together

This mod adds Ron as a playable character for Don't Starve and Don't Starve Together.


  • Hunger: 150
  • Health: 250
  • Health Absorption: 50%
  • Sanity: 100


The mod adds a jinxing mechanic to the game, in which completing various tasks, such as mining a boulder or picking a berry bush, can trigger a hostile creature spawn, or even an ambush event. Most jinx effects will result in the player taking damage easier. However, Ron has increased health and defense to balance this out.

The jinx can also affect nearby players and entities that are not protected with luck-giving items. The jinx itself can be hindered if the victim is protected by luck.

The jinx also changes and adds new behaviors to the game. The most common effect is hostile mobs having a preference to the victim over other entities, along with having an increased targeting range. Spawners are also affected. For instance, spider dens have a tendency to spawn a tougher variant of the spider, the spider warrior. Also, meteors will target the victim, accompanied with aggressive frogs.

Ron can also build a doll of himself, called the Jinxed Doll, that retains his jinxing effects. Its usage includes being an alternative target for hostile mobs, or allowing characters other than Ron to experience the jinx's effects.


Clovers are the main way of combating Ron's jinx. Ron has an increased chance to find clovers over other characters, making him efficient at clover hunting.

A number of luck giving items have been added to the game, most, if not all, requiring clovers as crafting ingredients. These items have the ability to prevent the jinx.
