The arc begins with this event, which will trigger at the end of the 6th day.

An old man visits you. "Sir, you'd be forgiven if you forgot because of the evacuation and the storm, but I didn't. It's the end of December and in the old days it meant that Christmas is near", he says.

"The Dark Years were so hard on us that for many young people Christmas became a historical oddity. To preserve the tradition, we could celebrate it with a common meal and presents, but the most important thing is giving people hope that this year will be different."

You have the following options:

  • We can't afford it
  • I need to think about it: You have a day to decide.
  • We'll celebrate Christmas: You'll have to organise the Christmas festivities.

If you chose you need to think about it, you'll see the old man again.

The old man visits you again. "Sir, have you made up your mind about Christmas We have just a few days left" he says.

If you chose to celebrate Christmas, this event will trigger later

A young engineer approaches you, visibly upset. He's one of the people who are dead set against the idea of celebrating Christmas.

"Christmas Bah, humbug We mustn't let the past weigh us down Every day we struggle to forge the new man who can survive the end of the world. Reviving such sentimental traditions doesn't advance our goal. Let people celebrate in private, but cancel the common meal"

You have the following options:

  • I disagree: Hope will rise. Food Rations will be spent on Christmas day
  • I agree: You won't have to spend the Food Rations

A time for giving[edit | edit source]

You have the following options:

  • We can't afford presents
  • All children will get something : Hope will rise slightly. Wood will be spent on Christmas day

If you do not complete any objectives during the quest, this will be your ending.

A single star shines dimly over the Generator as people retreat to their homes to share a meagre meal and their sorrows with family and friends. Children sit at the tables, unusually subdued.

The memory of their first and last Christmas will stay with them for years the ghost of a kinder, warmer world that is now gone forever.

You have the following options:

  • I see

A wistful Christmas[edit | edit source]

If you complete either the toys or food objective but do not complete the hope objective, this will be your ending.

If you give them food but not toys:

Stars shine coldly over the Generator as people leave their homes and gather around it to share a meal and their troubles. Kids gobble up their favourite foods, still not believing there's enough for seconds.

The children seem unaffected by the somber atmosphere. The memory of this special day will stay with them forever - a glimpse of a kinder, warmer world that once was.

Alternatively, if you chose to give toys but not food:

Stars shine coldly over the Generator as people retreat to their homes to share a modest meal and their troubles with family and friends. Kids open their presents and clutch them tightly, still not believing their eyes.
