A pilgrim’s Body Temperature generally sits a healthy 98 degrees. Hypothermia begins to set in as soon as your Body Temperature reaches 97, and, if left unchecked, will result in you becoming completely Frozen.
At first Hypothermia will not impact you very much, but as your body Temperature drops more, the stronger the Hypothermia will become. The stronger the Hypothermia the more your movement will be slowed. If your Body Temperature drops to 93 you will no longer be able to regenerate Humours. If your Body Temperature reaches 85 you will stop periodically as you shiver and shake, causing you to be momentarily Stunned. Finally, if your Body Temperature hits to 67 degrees you will become Frozen.
Snow is very cold so walking on it will rapidly decease your Body Temperature, which can quickly cause Hypothermia to set in. A pilgrim's regular set of Clothing will probably not be enough to protect them during Snow exploration. Make sure to never walk on the Snow without Shoes and make sure to carry some alternative methods of raising your Body Temperature. Alternatively you can build an Igloo, entering which will slowly warm you up.
How to Avoid Hypothermia
1. Dress Warm
Each item of has a Thermal Value. This number refers to how warm that item is. This number can be seen in in the lower right-hand of the item. Pilgrims come to the New World with only Priestly Robes which has a Thermal Value of 10.
2. Drink Some Broth
Drinking Fish Broth, Meat Broth, Poultry Broth will raise your Body Temperature. Place a Any Fish, Any Raw Meat Cut, or Plucked Wild Turkey into a Clay Pot on a lit Fireplace. Right-click the Clay Pot with your Broth onto a Drinking Vessel, such as a Barkcup, and equip it to your left hand slot. Right-click your equipped Barkcup and select "Sip". Each Sip will raise your Body Temperature by 3 to 4 degrees.
3. Warm Up Inside a Building
The Temperature inside any Building is always a warm 80, meaning if you are suffering from Hypothermia you can enter any Building to slowly raise your Body Temperature. While you can warm up in Buildings you’ve built, the easiest solution is to travel ... to Providence and enter one on the open Buildings.
4. Using a Wool Blanket
Right-clicking a Wool Blanket and selecting "Cuddle-Up" will instantly raise your Body Temperature.
5. Carry a Heated Stone
Using Fire to Raise Body Temperature
Fire, when used properly, can raise your Body Temperature and contract the effects of Hypothermia. Holding or standing near specific sources of Fire will, once every 30 seconds, increase your Body Temperature.
