A slab of hard material made to sleep on. Slab beds are uncomfortable, but some see their use as a demonstration of moral good. This one is wide enough to fit two people.

Slab double beds are a type of furniture added by the Ideology DLC. They are a variant of the regular double bed that provides no comfort to their users but does provide a mood boost to those with the correct precept.


Constructing a slab double bed requires Complex Furniture to be researched, Stuff 85 Stuff (Metallic/Woody/Stony), and 750 ticks (12.5 secs) of work. The constructor must follow an ideoligion with the Pain is Virtue meme in order to build it.


Slab double beds function as do other beds, but provide no comfort to their users. Instead, they provide a +2"Slept on slab bed" mood buff to pawns with an ideoligion with the Slab bed preferred precept. As of 1.3.3117, the end table and dresser are as related options to build when the slab bed is selected, and the dresser is shown as linking to the it as well, but neither facility improves the bed.

Otherwise, their bed stats act as they do on other beds.

Rest Effectiveness[edit]

Rest Effectiveness is a measure how fast a pawn will regain rest. A pawn sleeping in a bed with 125% rest effectiveness would regain rest 25% faster, and thus require 80% of the time to sleep. Rest effectiveness varies by quality and material. Stone materials only offer 90% of the rest effectiveness of a bed made from non-stone materials at the same quality level.

    Surgery Success Chance Factor[edit]

    The Surgery Success Chance Factor is exactly what it sounds like - a multiplier on the chance for a successful surgery assuming it is performed in this bed. The base value depends on the bed type with most beds and bedrolls having a base value of 100%, the sleeping spot a lower value of 70%, and the hospital bed a higher value of 110%. This base value is then modified by the bed's quality level. Beds of the same type and quality level will all have the same factor, regardless of what they're constructed from.

  • Analysis[edit]

    Double slab beds are an obvious choice for pawns following Pain is Virtue, which always has Comfort: Ignored. For the same resting stats, they cost fewer materials, require less work, and have a +2 moodlet over a regular bed. For other pawns, the loss of comfort often turns a possible +10 moodlet into a −3 Uncomfortable moodlet.

    Indeed, the real comparison is not between slab and regular beds, but if you should take Pain is Virtue as a whole. The lack of comfort means you don't have to build dining chairs or armchairs, but lose out on the comfort bonuses later on. Other than that, you will have to deal with Scarification, but gain the benefits of Rough Living (making the earlygame easier) and Pain: Idealized (allowing pawns to remain stable in the toughest of times). Scars can make up for mood, but come at the usual costs of pain.

    For couples that have both a comfort-ignoring and comfort-appreciating member, it is recommended to use a normal bed - the ignoring pawn will only lose the small +2 bonus, which is less than the huge loss of comfort.
