If you want to buy things and build buildings in Cult of the Lamb, you will need to farm lots of wood, lots of stone, and lots of other things.

Cult of the Lamb deftly mixes roguelite dungeons with complex ‘colony’ management in the form of your cult and the cultists you need to keep happy. This involves building them everything they need, including buildings to work in, farms to work in, and houses to sleep in.
