In the new survival hit Enshrouded, you have to find and rescue several NPCs, the sleeping survivors, at the start of the game. This overview shows you all five survivors, where you can find them, and what they can do.

In this guide, you will learn:

  • Where to find all five sleeping survivors.
  • How to summon them in your base.
  • Why the individual survivors are so important.

What are the Sleeping Survivors in Enshrouded?

The sleeping survivors are NPCs that you can summon in your base after you have rescued them from their vault. Each survivor unlocks new recipes for crafting options, as well as their crafting stations. You will receive a separate quest for each NPC. The first of these missions start at the very beginning, directly after building the Flame Altar, and is called “Find the Sleeping Survivor”. As soon as you have found and freed one of these NPCs, you must summon it in your base.

The summoning staff is one of your first tools.

To do this, you will need the item “Summoning Staff”, which you can craft yourself. You only need 12 branches to craft it. To unlock all the crafting options for the individual survivors, you need to make sure that they have a roof over their heads. All you need to do is put all five survivors in the same house.
