A pilgrim’s Body Temperature generally sits a healthy 98 degrees. Hypothermia icon.png 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 icon.png Stunned. Finally, if your Body Temperature hits to 67 degrees you will become Frozen.

Snow Exploration

Alternatively you can build an Igloo icon.png Igloo, entering which will slowly warm you up.
