Dilemma #28 - The Lights

Rumours spread again of dark and unfamiliar shapes moving through the city streets at night, prowling silently from door to door and always gone by the morning. Some say they are wild animals scavenging for food, while others suspect spies from rival districts, or wanderers from other regions of the city passing through.

Do the Districts set up searchlights at their perimeters, or work to maintain the lighting on the streets?

Searchlights: Gain 1 Defences and Lose 4 from your Energy Trap*

Streetlights: Gain 4 to your Energy Trap and Lose 4 from your Energy Trap*

* or lose all of your Energy Trap instead if your Defences are less than 0

Streetlights. i’m afraid we can’t afford the power draw that Searchlights would demand.

Searchlights. The danger outside our borders is clearly growing.

Streetlights. And wield the populace with hammers and clubs. If we use searchlights they’ll breach our perimeter and we’ll be blind.
