Your inventory and backpack will have the essential items you need to survive, and you can explore the map to find more resources. Keep in mind that building is a major part of the game, so you'll need to gather materials like wood, rope, logs, stone, and more to build a proper shelter in Sons of the Forest. We recommend keeping Kelvin alive, as this NPC can help you gather a lot of materials in the game.
