Survival Tip #206
Multiple Fortresses=Multiple Fail Safes
So, you’ve survived the onset of the Primal Age. You’ve survived your first year. Your numbers are growing. Everything is starting to feel like a routine.
This might be the time to think about diversifying.
Now there are a ton of draw backs to this idea, but if you have a well run fortress with a large number of survivors it should be something to consider.
During your scouting start to search for secondary locations that would make a good fortress, and if at all possible find a place that offers a boon that your current fortress doesn’t have. Start small at first by sending only a few people to get things establish and ensure the safety of the location. After that though you can slowly send more people over until you have a second base up and running.
If your first fortress becomes discovered by hostile forces, or something as simple as a fire burns it to the ground, you will already have a second home fully up and running to migrate to. While both fortresses stand you will have two different areas to harvest from and use a bases for exploration.

Twice the sites, twice the logistics.
Survival is measured by gain over effort. Putting stuff away to lose it from being found or destroyed is a waste of effort therefore a loss. Better to carry than to give away FOC.
