Log 2 This War of Mine
Today I played a new round, different from yesterday. I decided to try to play the game without raiding people’s houses and apartments. I wanted to try to raid just the abandoned locations. I also focused on building things in my home quicker so that I could have food and water on hand.
Things worked out well until I went to a villa that seemed to be abandoned but it turned out that it was in fact not. There were people there and after the raid I got home and the character felt badly about taking the things. I was a little confused because I thought that it was an empty villa. It was almost like I did something bad without even knowing it.
I also had a case today where a neighbor brought me food from their garden. I gladly accepted the gift and it helped out the food situation immensely. It made me wonder if I would be able to give gifts to people in the game the way that they gave me gifts. I am not sure how that would work since it seems like the only way to visit other locations is when I am on a raid at night.
So far with the game today I have been able to keep my characters happy, fed, and healthy longer than the last game I played.
