To start assigning tasks to tribesmen, you first need to unlock them. Here’s how:

  1. Build a Large Bonfire: After completing the initial tutorial quests in the guidance window, you’ll unlock the ability to build a large bonfire. This structure is crucial as it signals the beginning of your clan.
  2. Recruit the First Tribesman: Once the bonfire is built, a tribesman will approach you, asking to join your clan. This is your first recruit, marking the start of your growing tribe.

Once you have your tribesmen, it’s time to assign them tasks to help manage your base. Follow these steps:

  1. Open the Clan Menu:
  • Press the “I” key to access the Clan menu. This menu allows you to view, customize, and assign tasks to all your clan members.
  1. Access the Work Page:
  • In the Clan menu, you’ll see several icons on each clan member’s bar. These icons represent various traits and origins affecting their behaviors. To assign tasks, click on the hammer and anvil icon on the top row of the tribesman’s bar. This opens their work page.
  1. Set Task Priorities:
  • The work page allows you to create a priority list of tasks for each tribesman. Tasks higher on the list will be prioritized over those lower down. If higher priority tasks are complete or unfeasible, tribesmen will move on to lower-priority tasks.
