Morale is one of the major gameplay elements of the game. Players must strive to always be positive and maintain a good morale. Morale is based on different factors including the player's mood. A player's mood is partly determined by their allies. Allies whom are happy have little effect on the players' morale, however as your allies begin to damper their spirits, your player's morale takes a bigger hit. Every day of the struggle, morale is calculated. It is calculated by the "good will" reserves that a player has. Negative morale leads to more problems in the player's shelter. Morale can be improved through certain luxury items and actions. However, certain decisions will also have negative effects on morale.
