Hmmm...underground temp...

I'm wondering what would be the underground temperature of hyperborea, not near a volcano, just the "average dungeon/ruin that is below ground...
Any thoughts?

Re: Hmmm...underground temp...

On old Earth a geothermal heating unit pulls from a pretty consistent 55 degrees. Hyperborea has a slightly cooler sun and a completely different "core" dynamic.  Not being a geologist or scientist I would use a slightly cooler 50-55 degrees.  Wear your coat in the dungeon, but still not as bad as the top of Mt. Vhuurmithadon!

“How can I wear the harness of toil
And sweat at the daily round,
While in my soul forever
The drums of Pictdom sound?”

Seems like a good place to spend the winter years!

Re: Hmmm...underground temp...

Underborea is kept warm by the impulse drive engines placed their by an ancient sect of Hyperborean Witch Kings. It keeps the oddly formed "planetary fragment" from losing proper orientation wrt to the red, swollen star it orbits.

Or, it's kept warm by the monstrous bodies of the 7 elephants upon which it rests....

I could go on...but the margins of this medium limits my reply...

What? Me worry?
