Meat, is the primary resource used in Tooth and Tail and is typically taken from Pigs or harvested from the corpses of fallen enemy troops. Meat can typically be farmed from Gristmills found around the map, as well as gathered (automatically) from campfires. Everything in Tooth and Tail with the exception of Wretches and the Commanders cost meat, including buildings. It should be noted that buildings can be sold for various amounts of meat, ranging from full refunds at 100% health to next to nothing at low hp. Although automatically queued through warrens units still require meat to begin building. As such it is critical to manage ones food, if the player continues to build warrens before units can be built then they may find themselves with more then enough buildings producing no units. Each Pig naturally generates one meat per second with campfires producing an additional meat per second.
