A Field Cairn is used to designate a special area within a Village Claim. This zone can have its own specific permissions and works similar to other claims: each colour represents a group of villagers (where white is anyone that is not set to a colour, including non-villagers) for which you can set different Trespassing, Theft, and Vandalism privileges.

Field Cairns are handy to set communal areas, new villager spawn zones, etc.

The maximum area which can be claimed is 30x30 tiles large.

How to Use

After construction, right-click it, then right-click and drag to mark the area you want it to affect. When the zone is set, interact with the Field Cairn again to set permissions. These can be changed at any time by any villager that has permission to Grant privileges.


The look of the Field Cairn is affected by both the stones and the wood used to build it.

Game Development

  • Mushroom Circle (2021-02-21) >"Reworked/extended the plot representation. Field Cairns, used for setting local permission exceptions in villages, should now properly indicate their plots."
  • Lettuce Imagine (2015-10-20) >"Village Claims can no longer be extended from Field Cairns. Authority objects can, thus, not be built in an area claimed only by Field Cairns."
