Dilemma #14 - The Towers

A few tall buildings still stand in the city, some little more than central lift shafts with splinters of floors on all sides. The towers would serve well as simple and permanent lookout posts, although repeatedly scaling their broken heights is a dangerous business. A safer use for them would be as antennae for an improvised radio setup, broadcasting emergency messages to distant outsiders, and requiring only a single climbing expedition.

Do the Districts use their local towers as lookouts, or radio masts?

Lookout: Gain 1 Defences and Lose 5 People (or all People if you have fewer than 5)

Radio: Gain 5 People and Lose 1 Ingenuity*

* or lose your lowest-cost understood Innovation (selecting one at random if there’s a tie) instead if you have no Ingenuity

Thanks, it’s an enjoyable challenge working with the die rolls and the group narrative being built through proposals.

Lookout (allocating to lendunistus). we can’t risk losing any people to those dangerous outsiders!
