Habitat Guide (plus Habitat Indicators)

This page is a guide to help you properly add a habitat to your Entity, as well as the several "Habitat Indicators" for identifying an Entity's habitat. Follow these steps!

Most Entities have actual Levels listed for their habitats, but they can also reside in Rooms, Sub-Layers, Secret Levels, etc. For the sake of this guide, consider all of these Levels. Also, keep in mind that you always have the option to add a small paragraph detailing your Entity's habitat. This is encouraged!

If your entity has only 1 Level as its habitat

Simply list that one level. (For example, the Artist)

If your Entity has 5 Levels or less

List the levels it resides in. (For example, Reviooks)

If your Entity has more than 5 Levels

You have two options for detailing the habitat(s) of your Entity. The first is to list its most common habitats, followed by "Others". (For example, the Disease)

Your other option is to use one of the habitat indicators. Words like, "Majority", or "N/A".

Habitat Indicators


Majority - The entity can be found on nearly every level of the backrooms, can be found on hundreds of levels.

N/A - The entity/entities wander, and do not stick to a single level as their home. Also can be used if the entity is extra-dimensional, and does not reside in a level the same way a physical creature would.

Unknown - The level/levels where the entity resides are currently unknown (Only use this if the entity has been confirmed to exist, but its level is unknown. Not for unconfirmed entities)

All - The entity is always present no matter where you go, in all levels

Moist - The entity resides in levels that have high moisture content, or are cooler

Dry - The entity resides in levels that are dry, or hot
