The looming threat[edit | edit source]

This event triggers shortly after Save Our People (Arc) concludes.

Captain, the lookouts at the Beacon report a large group of strangers marching in our direction. We have to assume that the lords are coming. Our people are afraid that their worst fears are going to come true.

"We're going to die in this frozen hell if they force us to leave! Even if they let us stay, they'll turn us into their slaves. We must be ready to fight!"

You have the following options:

As the first wave of lords approaches your city, this event triggers.

Captain, the approaching strangers are carrying no weapons. Whatever their intentions, they have no means of attacking us. But people are wary.

"It's a trick to catch us off guard! The lords are cunning. Those leeches would do anything to get back at us, mark my words."

When the first wave of lords are a few hours outside your city, this event triggers.

Lords in rags[edit | edit source]

This event will trigger when the first wave of lords reaches your city.

Captain, the lords have arrived. They're starving. There's at least a hundred of them. A hundred! And more are coming. They beg us to let them in, but that would mean sharing our food supplies and finding them shelter.

You have the following options:

  • Send them away: The lords will set up camp outside the city.
  • Let them in - I'll see to everyone's needs: You will have 2 days to provide shelter for people and feed people. Hope will fall.
  • Let them in - I'll improve the food infrastructure: You will have 2 days to provide shelter for people and build Industrial Hothouses or Hunters' Hangars 3 total. Discontent will rise.

If you let the lords in, you'll trigger another event named "Lords in rags"

The starving lords have entered the city. Our people are not happy with their arrival. The lords, on the other hand, are rejoicing.

"Thank you, kind people! We'd have been doomed if you hadn't let us in.
