Wormwood is Now Live!

Lunar Roots
Though the circumstances of his creation were unusual at best, Wormwood came into this world full of optimism and curiosity, ready to make new friends and see all that life had to offer. But as time wore on and he experienced the cold sting of rejection, he came to learn what the moon above had always known: Wormwood the Lonesome does not belong here.

Here are his details: 

  • Wormwood can plant Seeds directly in the ground without using Farms.
  • In Spring, Wormwood blossoms, gaining increased movement speed, draining hunger faster, and attracting Bees.
  • Eye Plants are friendly to Wormwood.
  • Wormwood has a Green Thumb crafting tab:
    • Living Log can be created at the cost of 20 Health.
    • Bramble Husk provides 65% Armor and shoots out thorns when hit, dealing 23 damage in a small radius.  The wearer is also protected from thorns.
    • Bramble Trap shoots out Thorns when triggered, dealing 40 damage in a small radius.
    • Compost Wrap restores 30 Health to Wormwood.  It can also be used as a very potent fertilizer. *
  • Wormwood can use Manure, Guano, or Bucket-o-poop to fertilize himself, restoring 2 Health.
  • Food items do not heal Wormwood.
  • Wormwood takes 25% more damage from fire, and burns for slightly longer.*
  • Wormwood loses sanity when plants are destroyed near him (e.g. picking flowers, completely chopping or burning down trees, digging up stumps, grass, saplings, or bushes, etc.)  This excludes plants that are diseased or already burnt.
  • Wormwood gains sanity when plants are planted near him (e.g. seeds, flowers, trees, grass, saplings, or bushes, etc.)
  • Sanity effects from planting or destroying plants is reduced the further it happens from Wormwood.*

Wormwood can be unlocked in the following ways:

  • Wormwood is available for free for all owners of Don't Starve Hamlet on Steam.
  • Wormwood is available for purchase for $6.99 in the Wormwood Chest. Wormwood's Roseate skin set is included in this chest for free.
  • The Wormwood Deluxe Chest is $10.99 and includes Wormwood as well as the Roseate, Oasis Bound and Hollow skin sets.
  • You can weave Wormwood for 2700 spool.

A fragment/energy "fallen from sky", forming a new being with the material around him.

Sounds good and very familiar.

Wormwood is a costruct with traits of talking tree!

So it's finally confirmed that the Hamlet Loyal is Wormwood only (even not marked as Loyal as much as I know) or only 900 spools if you buy any of the skin chests.

Also, I guess it's confirmed that whenever he opens his mouth didgeridoo sounds just come out. :wilson_ecstatic:
