Scorched Acres logbook diorama

Scorched Acres is the first new map added to the game, located on Petrichor V, and is found in the third set of Environments in Risk of Rain 2.

Large, circular platforms make up the majority of the stage, and embers float through the air.



The map is comprised of many floating circular islands, which are connected by bridges and Geysers.

Large mountains are also found on the outskirts of the map.

Newt Altars

The Newt Altars can spawn at several locations on Scorched Acres:

  1. On the leftmost ledge behind the wall of the lowest circular island.
  2. At the very top of the (sometimes) accessible mountaintop area.
  3. At the very end of the path atop of the larger out-of-bounds mountaintop area (Consistent spawn).

DAY 03
I’ve encountered a strange, alien compound. Several platforms, supported by large stone pillars. There are various tiers and “floors” decorated with plants and elaborate sculptures. The masonry of these ruins is incredible. 

Although they appear recently polished... it also seems uninhabited. Lucky me - I was getting tired and needed some rest. I’ll be setting up camp on a nearby cliffside, under the shade of one of the platforms.

DAY 04
I haven’t encountered anything yet, but I have heard strange sounds throughout the night. Animal calls, the low groaning of stone as it stretches, whispers on the wind... that last part might just be my imagination. 

I’ve taken to exploring the compound in my free time, trying to scrounge for resources. There’s an excess of food, plucked from exotic plants that appear to have been grown and cultivated. Yet, again, the compound is empty, apart from me.

DAY 05
I ran out of rations earlier. I’ve started using the planters located around the compound to grow myself some food – strange fruits that taste of... well, I can’t really describe the taste. I’m only just noticing the strange aromatic smell that permeates this compound... Smells sweet, but spicy at the same time.

DAY 07
I discovered some strange artifacts today. Masks! How novel. For some reason… I felt compelled to try a few on. As expected, they don’t fit at all – probably not meant for human use.
