Cult of the Lamb deftly blends roguelite dungeoneering with complex 'colony' management in the form of your cult and the cultists that you must keep happy. This involves building them everything they need, including buildings to work at, farms to toil over, and homes to sleep in.

Of course, these buildings don't come for free. No - you'll need to harvest and collect various resources. You'll use these for construction, for trading with the game's NPCs, and to enact devious and miraculous rituals at your temple. Here's every resource item in the game and the best ways to get them.
