Animus stone

Animus stone

An ancient jade stone marked with sacred tribal carvings. Tribal psycasters can focus on these stones during meditation to increase their psyfocus gain more than a typical nature shrine.
Different tribal cultures tell different stories about these stones, but most agree that they were crafted by an ancient world spirit during a time of great power. Since they look like natural objects to unobservant outsiders, raiders will generally ignore them.

An Animus stone is a type of furniture added by the Royalty DLC at which a pawn can meditate to regain psyfocus.


Animus stones cannot be crafted, and must be either bought from traders or received as a quest reward.


Animus stones are a natural meditation focus. They have a base meditation focus strength of 34%.

Like other natural focus objects, its effectiveness is reduced by artificial buildings within a 34.9 tile radius. Note that this does not include flooring and torch lamps. The reduction is set by the following curve:

  • Artificial items
    in range
    0 0%
    5 − 8%
    10 −16%
    50 −34%
  • Animus stones give +2% psyfocus per day to nearby natural focus objects, including other animus stones. Up to four additional animus stones can attach to a focus. Thus the maximum meditation focus of an animus stone is 42%, reached with a total of five animus stones.


    Animus stones are the strongest Natural meditation focus, 6% stronger than the anima tree. However, the anima tree has the benefit of the anima tree linking ceremony, giving pawns access to a higher level of psylink. If psyfocus is needed now, though, the animus stone is the best option for Natural meditation pawns.

    Compared to other foci, natural focus has the disadvantage in that they should be placed far from artificial buildings. This increases travel time and reduces efficiency of this focus. The animus stone has a high psyfocus power, but the travel time can end up making the animus stone less efficient than other types of foci.
