Permafrost is a block that resembles dirt but is cold and can damage the player if they stand on it for more than ten seconds. After this time limit, the player will be damaged like standing on a Magma Block.
Permafrost resembles a dirt block but is interwoven with ice and snow. It does not melt when placed in a warm biome. Permafrost generates in clumps below Snowy Plains/Tundra biomes as well as below the Ice Spikes biome. This block is uncommon.
When the player stands on permafrost a “tsssss...” sound plays that lasts for ten seconds and gradually gets quieter. When the sound ends, the player gets damaged.
In real life Permafrost is ice and dirt that has been frozen for tens of thousands to millions of years without melting. It is found in Siberia below the tundra where frozen mummified mammoths and wooly rhinos have been found. Because of this Permafrost has a rare chance of dropping a Bone or Leather.
