You can cook a stew with the cooking pot. After adding the pot filled with water on a fire, add a choice of 20 ingredients (8 meats, 6 mushrooms, 4 herbs and 1 berry and oysters), it will start a 30s cooking period after which stew will be ready to eat, providing hydration, fullness and other benefits based on recipe.

Meat ages over time in inventory, going from fresh to edible to spoilt and providing less and less benefits and eventually becoming harmful. Meat appearance as well as inventory tooltip title change to reflect decay state.
Rocks are one of the primary building resources and can be found lying on the forest ground. The player may carry up to 5 rocks in his inventory at the same time and may use one as a weapon.
