Mods for Stardew Valley have allowed fans to raise the game to new heights, and Distant Lands provides a much-needed upgrade to the Witch’s Swamp, making the area more exciting.

An All-New NPC and Events

One of the biggest updates offered in Distant Lands is the introduction of a new Goblin NPC named Zic who has a special love for Void Mayonnaise. Fans familiar with the map will recognize the NPC as a reworked version of the henchman that can be found in the original version of the area. However, this time, he has his own personality and life within the swamp. In addition to Zic the Goblin, this mod also adds over 20 new quests and events that will allow players to learn more about Zic’s backstory and receive new recipes and special items.

New Fish, Crops, and Forage

The Distant Lands mod also updates the area with new fish, forage items, and crops that players can use for new and exciting recipes, like Crayfish Soup and Void Mint Tea.

  • Swamp Herb
  • Void Mint
