This event will trigger as you're preparing for the storm.

Sir, a man is here to see you. He says that his daughter ran away after the news of the storm spread. He wants to borrow a scout sled and go after her.

"She's a big girl, but she was always very impulsive, and she scares easily," the father explains. "I must find her before she's lost for good. She's all I have left."

You have the following options:

  • Equip him for the journey: 30 Food Rations will be spent.
  • Ignore him
  • He'll die too, stop him: This man will be prevented from leaving the city. Hope will fall.

Sir, the runaway girl has returned! She was found huddled in a warm spot right by the Generator. She's starving, exhausted and frostbitten.

We think she must've turned back soon after leaving the city, although it's still a miracle that she survived at all. Now she's asking for her father. Someone will have to tell her he's dead.

  • It's my duty

If you equipt the man for his journey, this event will trigger during the storm.

Sir, it's a miracle! The man who went looking for his daughter is back. He brought her with him!
