After you select your purpose path, this event will trigger. It has two variations.

If you chose Order:

Sir, you've convinced the majority, but hope is low. A group of our people are still so scared that they want to flee the city for London in 15 days. They've come to try to change your mind.

"You say order will save us? Nonsense! What, are we going to orderly decide who to eat first when we start to starve?! If we don't try to reach London, we'll end up like Winterhome!"

If you chose Faith:

Sir, you've convinced the majority, but hope is low. A group of our people are still so scared that they want to flee the city for London in 15 days. They've come to try to change your mind.

"You say that faith will save us? Nonsense! What, are we going to pray for food when we start to starve?!" shouts one of them. "If we don't try to reach London, we'll end up like Winterhome!"

You have the following options:

  • Calm down, we're not going to die

We are united[edit | edit source]

If you succeed in preventing the Londoners from leaving, this event may trigger. If it does not, "We won't be divided" will. The difference between these events is unknown.

The last of the Londoners have finally seen the folly of their plan. Nobody wants to leave the city anymore. We've won a hard-fought victory over fear and despair.

The tragedy of Winterhome crushed our hope, but not our spirit. We now stand united once again, stronger than ever, in the face of an uncertain future.

If you fail at stopping the Londoners after 15 days, this event will trigger.

Sir, the time is at hand. The Londoners have gathered around the Generator for the last time. They are going to leave the city. This is our last chance to stop them from committing mass suicide. Whatever they said and did, they're still our people... even if they no longer think so.

You have the following options:

  • Ask the faith keepers to stop them: Many people will be hurt, some may die. Requires active Faith Keepers
  • Order guards to stop them: Many people will be hurt, some may die. Requires an active Guard Station
  • Stay with us, you'll die out there: Thanks to the city's high hope, most Londoners will stay. Disabled if Hope is too low
  • Equip them for the journey: people will leave the city forever. Hope will fall slightly. Londoners will receive Food Rations. You don't have enough food
  • Let them go: people will leave the city forever. Hope will fall.
