This page provides a list of game-play items and buildings as well as the resources (creatures, buildings, tools, items, and terrain tiles) needed to attain them.

The resources are sorted into levels of refinement. Many items in the game require blueprint buildings of varying complexity, grouped together in Level 1 and at the top of each of the other sections.

In the matrix, Level 1 resources include raw resources and other items as found over the various terrains that make up the initial island. Some found items are only available on other islands (standard map) and therefore require a canoe to attain). Anything in Level 2 can be attained by combining one or more things from Level 1. Likewise, anything in Level 3, etc. can be attained by combining one or more things from the previous levels.

The links in the first column of the tables (below) jump to other pages in this wiki (except where bracketed). All links in the other columns jump to related reference on this page. An asterisk (Axe*) indicates that "any of that type" will suffice, i.e. there are three axe types – crude, wooden, metal.

Use the matrix to plan and develop your own strategy as to when or how you collect and combine resources. No creature will suffer... just don't cut down the last tree before planting seeds!
