Male and Female Folk

A Folk is a character species on Earth that is somehow immune to the Corruption. They have set up settlements all over the world. Your game character and most of the other characters you interact with are Folk.

Folk History

Before the Corruption began, Folk conducted trade with many of the monster species. However, since all the other species have become corrupted, the Folk have dedicated their time to helping cure the monsters.

The Ministry of Monsters was formed to have a central intelligence organization to keep track of any areas where corrupted monsters seemed to be out of hand. Made up almost entirely of Folk, the Ministry helps train young Folk to be master trappers, chefs, and farmers to help keep up with the modern demands. They hope to be able to harness Gnomish technology to find the source of the Corruption and put a stop to it.

To change the location of your Homestead, click on the "Switch home location" button and the game will show you the world map and ask you to choose a new location for 35 Bank Notes.

Changing your appearance will cost the price of the clothing. You can change your hair color, skin color and eye color for free. However, if you want to change your hair style or eye shape it will cost the price of the shape listed.



Your Folk can have special titles, unlocked as you progress in the game, that are displayed before or after your character name. Titles are unlocked by completing Achievements. This feature was added during the February 7, 2013 game update.

Other players can see your Folk's title by hovering over your character and on your info screen.
