A picture of the Ruins found in the Spawn Desert

Ruins are small structures which are normally in very bad condition. Some resemble distinct buildings such as a church, however the vast majority of the buildings are unrecognizable given their current condition. These buildings are normally found in the South and can be incredibly helpful for giving new players starter supplies and loot.

The forest contains many ruins built out of stone bricks or cobblestone. They are generally isolated and normally free of any players. These ruins are all very similar in structure and many contain military-oriented loot. Ruins here will be referenced based on major locations they are nearby them rather than their location on the continent.
