I started fresh again yesterday with the jungle tribe scenario and had worked up to building a generator and half my house walls in slate. I still had three of my starting five colonists and things went bad. Two of them including my only doctor developed severe malaria and eventually croaked. When the second one died his bonded Labrador went berserk and attacked my remaining clan member. He then developed a severe chest infection and minor blood loss from the various wounds inflicted by our once beloved pooch.
At that time a wanderer named Donkey showed up. She was young and skilled and I immediately set her to work tending to the other person. Then during a visit from a friendly clan there was a raid. Multiple casualties for the friends, but all the raiders also died. Donkey was very busy fighting the fire they’d started in our fields which took out the potatoes and half of the hops.
In the end both of them survived a while, but one of them was savagely killed by a maddened ostrich and Donkey succumbed to a number of pirate wounds during the next raid.
I am so hooked right now it’s not even funny.
