Final Hours - Death will not do us part.png

The exact trigger of this event is unknown, but it will result in two deaths during the final days of the scenario.

Sir, an elderly couple has been found dead in their bed. They took poison together. We found this note by their bodies:

"We know what the future holds for us, whether it's here or in the Dreadnought. We refuse to be separated by death, so now we are united in it."

You have the following options:

  • I see: Hope falls

Left Behind[edit | edit source]

This event will trigger if you have amputees left in the city during the final days of the scenario.

People are running in all directions, trying to finish whatever last-minute tasks they have left. A group of motionless figures stands out among this frantic activity. The amputees. They've nowhere to go.

They watch their friends and neighbours impassively, some of them standing, others who are missing legs sitting on empty crates or barrels. A few look in your direction, but there is no anger in their faces, only resignation.

You have the following options:

  • I did what i had to do: Hope falls

The Generator is critical[edit | edit source]

This event will trigger when the Generator runs out of time and you've opted to leave the engineers in the city.

Sir, the Generator is in a critical condition. It could break down at any moment and we won't be able to fix it. Stress will start building until it blows up.

The people still left in the city are starting to panic. If we don't act, they'll abandon their posts and run for their lives, and the Generator will explode shortly thereafter.

You have the following options:

  • Flee for your lives!: The game will end.
  • I'm staying with you! remain at your posts!: You will gain 24 more hours.
  • Stay at your posts!: You will gain 24 more hours. Requires an active Guard Station or Faith Keepers

The Generator is critical v2[edit | edit source]

This event will trigger when the Generator runs out of time and you've opted to send the engineers to the dreadnought.

Sir, the Generator is in a critical condition. It could break down at any moment and we won't be able to fix it. Stress will start building until it blows up.

There's only a handful of people left in Winterhome, but our engineers are ready to stay until the end to send as many evacuation transports as possible. Their sacrifice would buy us 24 more hours.

You have the following options:

  • Evacuate the engineers now: The game will end. Requires an active Guard Station or Faith Keepers
  • Their sacrifice will not be forgotten: You will gain 24 more hours.
  • I'm staying with you: You will gain 24 more hours.
