Welcome to this tutorial on how to use signs in Valheim. Signs are an amazing tool that can help you keep track of your tasks, or remind other players of theirs. Plus, they're a great way to add a touch of humor to your game. So, let's get started and learn how to make colored signs!

To begin, you'll need some coal and wood to make a sign. The easiest way to get coal is to cook some necktail, boar meat, or deer meat on the fire until it turns to charcoal. Once you've got your coal and wood, you're ready to create your sign! And the best part? You don't even need a workbench! Just open up hammer menu and build the sign wherever you want. Notice that the sign has a black side and a text side. The text side has ... until you replace the text with something your own.

Now, it's time to get creative with your sign. You can add any text you want, but there's a limit of 50 characters, so keep it short and sweet. But here's the fun part - you can use all sorts of symbols and emojis to make your sign stand out! How about adding a skull and crossbones ☠ for a warning sign, or a creepy skull 💀 to spook your friends? You can even add some stars 🌟 for a little extra sparkle.

To change the color of the sign, you must put <color=red> at the beginning of the text. In exchange for losing characters; the whole sign will now be bright and easy to read! Use <color=white> to make the sign more visible in low-light conditions.

The more characters you use, the smaller the text will be. If you use just one character, like a number or a symbol, the text will be at its largest! So, go ahead and experiment with different sizes and symbols until you find the perfect sign that suits your purposes.

In conclusion, signs are not just for boring reminders or directions. They can be a fun and hilarious way to express yourself in Valheim. So, next time you need to remember something, or just want to make your friends laugh, whip out your coal and wood, and make a sign that will be sure to bring a smile to everyone's face.

Here are a bunch of symbols you can copy paste! (see the thumbnail for how they look in valheim)
