Dilemma #8 - The Mariners

A group of bedraggled strangers arrive in the city claiming to be the surviving crew of the wrecked cargo ship. They tell dark and contradictory tales of the outside world and the dead city’s place in it. Afraid for the future, the crew ask to be given sanctuary within the occupied districts, or at least to trade some essentials on their way to the abandoned areas of the city.

Do the Districts welcome the groups, or trade for food and send them on their way?

Welcome, though begrudgingly, as they’re distracting our citizens from salvaging the old tech.
