Dilemma #2 - The Cold

Freezing gales sweep into the city from the east, marking a shift in the seasons and colder months to come. The residential infrastructure of each district will need some essential construction and maintenance to get through it, using parts and materials from wherever they can be found.

Do the Districts focus on stripping agricultural equipment for pipework and boilers, or recycling construction materials from their defensive structures?

Insulation: Gain 1 Tech and Lose 1 Defences

Survival of the Wittest has renamed Tech to Ingenuity, meaning that Upsides of “Gain 1 Tech” are no longer valid as Upsides.

Snap consensus on Discord is that under “If the rules that define a game variable are amended, and some previously valid values become invalid as a consequence, any existing variables whose current values would become invalid are instead set to their starting value” both of these instances default to their alphabetically earliest possible Upside: Gain 1 Defences.

Districts must now choose between:-

Heating: Gain 1 Defences and Lose 1 Food
Insulation: Gain 1 Defences and Lose 1 Defences

(Famine’s Edge has now enacted and updated the “Lose 1 Food” outcome to “Lose 1 Food, or 10 People if you don’t have any Food”.)
