This page is about the Movement sub-menu of the game and will mention pages relevant to what one can find inside it.
This sub-menu can be found inside the Main-menu.

Activity Movements

Activity Movements are Movement Actions which change your Movement speed. Toggling on an Activity Movement will drain Phlegm until it is toggled off again, which will revert your speed back to a Walk. An Activity Movement will automatically turn off if your Phlegm gets too low.

Mounts are Creatures which can be ridden to significantly increase your Movement speed. To ride a Mount, right-click it and select "Ride 'em Cowboy!!". To dismount, ctrl-click the ground. Mounts cannot be attacked, killed, or Butchered, nor can you attack or use Lift icon.png Lift from a Mount. Damage taken while mounted will dismount the rider.


With the Indian Tracking Skill learned, toggling Tracking icon.png Tracking on will allow you to see the Footprints icon.png Footprints left by yourself and others. Following found Footprint may lead you to another pilgrim! Sneak, when toggled on, slowly drains Black Bile.

Footprint Duration Notes

Red Footprints.png 1 hour Left by pilgrims with the Crime! icon.png Crime! debuff.

To avoid leaving Footprints, travel on Water, Pavement or toggle on Sneak icon.png Sneak.

Foraging Movements

Foraging Movements are Movement Actions which increase the amount of Foragables that you will find in the wild. Toggling on a Foraging Movement will drain the corresponding Humour until it is toggled off again. A Foraging Movements will automatically turn off if any of the Humours it drains gets too low.

Swim icon.png Swim can be toggled on or off to allow for the crossing of The Deep icon.png The Deep tiles of Water. Swim drains Phlegm based on your Skill at Swimming. Running out of Phlegm while Swimming will cause you to become Knocked Out. Most Creatures cannot Swim so combat can be disengaged from in a pinch by Swimming into The Deep. Notably, both Wishpoosh icon.png Wishpooshes can Swim and Furfur icon.png Furfurs can fly over Water.

Throughout the New World there are areas where the elevation jumps sharply, creating a cliff. Standing beneath a cliff and clicking the top will cause you to Climb up, and standing at the top of a cliff and clicking the bottom will cause you to climb down. Selecting your Climbing Mode determines the speed you climb, how likely you are to fall, how much Blood damage you will take if you do fall, and how high you can free climb without equipping a Rope icon.png Rope. Increasing Mines & Mountains icon.png Mines & Mountains will also reduce your risk of falling and the damage you take when you do fall.
