  • Trivia[]

    • The Tree Treasures line "Back in the day, people used to forge butterflies into powerful gear. We try to forget those days... but here have one." is a reference to the Thorium Mod's now removed Butterfly Plague, which were used to craft several upgrades to the Butterfly Staff and a few enchantments.
    • The line "I eat a bowl of woodchips for breakfast.. without any milk." is a reference to a quote from SpongeBob SquarePants, with nails being replaced by woodchips.
    • The line "I'm a lumberjack and I'm okay, I sleep all night and I work all day!" is a reference to Monty Python's 'The lumberjack song' with that being a line in the chorus.
    • The name Paul is a reference to the folklore spun Lumberjack Giant named Paul Bunyan.
    • According to Deviantt's dialogue when LumberJack is present, he is likely unbelievably powerful, to the point where even trying to fight him is meaningless.
      • This was also referred in previous versions of the mod when it had it's own lore from Deviantt's former lore quotes.
    • Judging by Mutant's dialogue when LumberJack is present, Mutant is extremely afraid of him.
    • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the LumberJack: "A wholly ordinary lumberjack that loves collecting critters and chopping wood of any kind. But could there be more to him than meets the eye? Secret godly power? ...Probably not"
