A desk with a 7x7 inventory grid in which you can store Curiosities. Curiosities stored in a study desk will replace items in your Study Screen as they are used up, creating an auto queue for Curiosities

How to Use

Each character may only have one active Study Desk at a time. When you build A study desk, it will bind to your character. right clicking an unbound desk allows you to "take possession" of that desk.

Anyone may take items from a bound study desk, and anyone may put items into a study desk while the owner is online.

The study desk will prioritize replacing identical curiosities as they are used, but will accept different curiosities if none are present. In this fashion, if you are studying a cone cow, with a cone cow and a dandelion on your study desk, the queue of items would go cone cow->cone cow-> dandelion.

The study desk of a deceased character will be rendered "This study desk is not used.", as possession is not transferred through inheritance.

Be careful when clicking the study desk of an other (friendly) hearthling. As its easy to miss-click "take possession" instead of "open", which can have a significant negative study impact for the effected hearthling.


  • The study desk quits functioning, and becomes unbound after some time, if placed inside a vehicle (Rowboat, Cart, Leanto, etc.). Make sure to avoid storing it in these places while its in use.
  • Study Desks have a quality when inspected but is unknown how/if this affects anything.
  • When building a study desk. Its unconditionally set as the players currently owned study desk. (ie: breaking link with currently used study desk by player.)

  • Merry Igloo! (2021-12-19) >"The default client now displays LP per hour information on curiosities. Hovering over a curiosity will color all curios currently in your mentory in shades of green or red, depending on if their LP/h is better or worse than the one you're currently hovering over."
  • Red Wheat (2016-11-09) >"Added "Study Desk", You will automatically draw and study new curiosities placed on your study table, whenever you finish studying a curiosity. I'm sure this doesn't negate the problem of auto-study bots entirely, but it can perhaps mitigate it a bit, and the desk makes for nice decoration if nothing else."
