Day 9. That's when it finally happened. That's when I caved and stole something. And it was from a hospital. But Bruno escalated to "lethally wounded" and I couldn't find bandages anywhere and all the traders are hacks who take way too much for anything useful. I talked to all the nurses, I couldn't find the doctor to trade with, and no one would help me unless my actually wounded and sick character was the one there, so I opened a private property cabinet and found food and bandages and took it. I even left a bunch of stuff there in its place as a sort of trade to make myself feel better, but it wasn't a fair trade and I knew it.
The worst part, though, was the next day getting back and having people show up to say that someone stole from the humanitarian center and they asked if my guy did it. I said no, but they didn't leave. Then I had to stop playing and I didn't finish the day so I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to face them again when I get back. I still have a lethally wounded dude who's also depressed now, as well as a severely sick guy who's beyond the help of herbal medicines and needs real medication. And keeping up with food is just impossible. I had a miracle of a new reporter girl show up and join my group who has "bargaining skills" but I haven't had the chance to use her skills yet and see how good they really are.
I really don't think my group is going to make it much longer.
