3 Pyramids

A Pyramid is a naturally-occurring structure created from Sandstone Bricks that will spawn in any Desert of sufficient size in a world. Inside each Pyramid is a winding tunnel which will typically contain one or more treasure rooms. Most worlds with a Pyramid in them will have a functioning wall to stop corruption or The Hallow spreading in Hard Mode through the desert as the pyramids' structure will stop it.

The Pyramid usually has a main room. It contains a chest, containing various unique items and other furniture etc. Items. This will always be present unless another biome is generated during world creation after the Pyramid, which can result in a Pyramid consisting only of a long staircase going downward.

Once settled in, Pyramids can protect the player from monsters and obtain a large amount of sandstone. If not the case, it is a very good shelter for the night when the entrance is blocked off. It is also a very quick way to get into the deeper reaches of the Underground, as most stretch well into the Cavern layer.
