The Thulecite Medallion is an Ancient item. It requires 2 Nightmare Fuel, 2 Thulecite, and a Broken Ancient Pseudoscience Station to craft. Like all items from the Ancient Tab, the Thulecite Medallion cannot be prototyped and Characters need to be near a Broken Ancient Pseudoscience Station to craft it again.
- Calm Phase - The medallion will be tan.
- Warning Phase - The medallion will be tan with red accents.
- Nightmare Phase - The medallion will glow red. Nightmare Lights will spawn Shadow Creatures in this phase.
Examining the item at this time will provide further details regarding the current state of magical flux: becoming more magical, staying steady, or becoming less magical, referring to the start, middle, and end of the Nightmare Phase, respectively.
When outside the Ruins (including in the Caves), it will remain a constant red, with the character noting it's not working when it's examined.

In the Shipwrecked DLC, the Thulecite Medallion can be crafted while wearing a Brain of Thought, even when the player is not near an Ancient Pseudoscience Station. However, this requires the player to be in a Reign of Giants or base game world that has been linked to a Shipwrecked world using the Seaworthy. In the Shipwrecked world, the Brain of Thought will enable Volcanic Tab recipes instead.
Don't Starve Together Edit
When a Thulecite Medallion is in the inventory of a player, the Ancient Key will appear on their map, even if it is carried by another Mob or player, in a container or on the ground and in an unexplored area.
A drawing of a Thulecite Medallion on a Mini Sign will indicate the Nightmare Cycle's Phase like a real one.
