Dilemma #7 - The Shipwreck

Lookouts report a derelict cargo ship aground in one of the craters at the old harbour. It’s a dangerous part of the city to set foot in, but the vessel is bound to have some rare supplies still preserved in its hold.

Do the Districts send out teams to salvage what they can, or leave the waves to claim it?

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

Ignore: Nothing happens (Gain 1 Food and Lose 1 Food*)

* or lose 10 People instead if you are Starving

I don’t think anyone can even prove that boats exist. I ignore.

I Ignore. There’s monsters in those waters, so I hear.

Reminder that Districts with Shared Wisdom automatically gain 1 Ingenuity when Reacting to this Dilemma, as it’s a multiple of 7.

Thanks for the reminder!

(Note that that’s me deploying a Guarded style and correcting an error in the gamestate, since the Ingenuity gain is compulsory even if you don’t want it; players won’t be getting intentional reminders for optional actions.)

Ignore; we’ve got plenty of food in our stores right now.
