Dilemma #16 - The Fire

Ancient alarms ring out at the Battery Garden’s control station, and corroded sprinkler valves hiss nothing but air. Within minutes the structure is burning vividly against the night sky, the solar array reflecting its flames. Across the city, the electricity lines flicker and a few substations burn out in flashes of sparks.

Do the Districts send runners to the Garden to divert its remaining power, or reassign engineers to ensure that the local power grid is operating safely?

Divert: Gain 4 to your Energy Trap and Lose 5 People (or all People if you have fewer than 5)

Secure: Gain 1 Defences 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
