Wooden feet are medieval artificial body parts that replace a pawn's foot. They are better than having a missing foot or replacing the foot with a peg leg, but are inferior to all other options.


Unlike most other prostheses, wooden feet don't have a separate item form and the materials require no previous work to turn into a prosthesis before installation. Instead, when ordering a surgical operation on a pawn, Wood 1 Wood, Herbal medicine 2 Herbal medicines is consumed and the wooden foot is added to the pawn. Notably, when removed the wooden foot turns back into a wooden log.


Wooden feet replace the user's entire organic foot. The wooden foot has a part efficiency of 80%. This partially replaces the functionality of a normal foot - when coupled with the foot body part having a Moving importance of 50%, it results in restoring 40% moving per missing foot replaced, or a loss of 10% when replacing a healthy foot.

Moving, in turn, affects the following stats: Hunting Stealth, Melee Dodge Chance, Move Speed. This results in a directly proportional change to a pawn's move speed, and a change in melee dodge chance equivalent to losing 1.8 levels of Melee skill per foot replaced. Due to how the stat is fit to a post-process curve, this can result in the melee dodge chance dropping to 0% for pawns with skill under 7, when replacing one foot, or under 10 for both feet.

Each wooden foot results in -4% character quality and thus a 4% reduction in the affected individual's pawn value.

As an artificial part, wooden feet will give a mood buff to anyone with the Body modder trait, and a mood penalty to anyone with the Body purist trait.


Installing the part requires 1,000 ticks (16.67 secs) of work, ?x medicine of ?? quality or better, and a Medical skill of 3.

Removing the part requires 2,000 ticks (33.33 secs) of work, 1x medicine of herbal quality or better, and has no Medical skill requirements.

If the operation fails, the wood will be destroyed.


A wooden foot is significantly better than having a missing foot or using a whole peg leg, and slightly better than 3 lost toes. Meanwhile, a prosthetic leg only improves Moving from a wooden foot by 2.5%, though it replaces the full leg (including leg scars). For pawns in general, a wooden foot isn't a dealbreaker, but less moving means they are less effective at work and combat.

Regardless, replacing a wooden foot with a bionic leg should be a priority. There are no "prosthetic feet" or "bionic feet"; you must replace the entire leg to improve a foot.
