The Londoners Prey on Discontent is an event arc in A New Home.

The Londoners Prey on Discontent[edit | edit source]

This arc behaves somewhat differently than most event arcs, and some events can trigger multiple times. The events "A few are persuaded," "A restless group," and "An agitated crowd" are effectively the same event with different flavours. They can all trigger when you have high discontent, and they all have the same choices, which are discussed after the events.
