Description[edit | edit source]

Produce 30 Raw Food/10h

One of the hallmarks of civilization is ability to cultivate agriculture; the cultivation and breeding of animals and plants to provide food, fiber, medicinal plants and other products to sustain and enhance life. However, due to the rapid arrival of the New Ice Age, most of our crops and seedlings were destroyed before they were able to mature or be harvested. The vast majority of plant-based crops cannot grow in the extreme cold weather and the few hardy species we had were either eaten into extinction or were not able to adapt fast enough to the new climate.

Forced to find alternative sources of food, it was discovered that certain species of algae and lichens are edible and rich in protein. These hardy crops can grow within improvised Hothouses, and while these algae and lichens are not partially tasty, it is better than starving to death.

Fan lore[edit | edit source]

If we want to grow something different than algae and lichens, than we need some kind of full-industrialized hothouse that has a completely sealed environment that keeps warmth inside and thick glass windows that allow light to enter and keep the cold outside. Then we can grow Old World vegetables or fruits like Grain, Broccoli, Strawberry and maybe even Apple Tree.
