If a Resource is neither a Need or Surplus, I would assume the Family have a neutral amount somewhere between the two extremes. Does this mean you can spend these ‘neutral’ resources, which would give you an equivalent Need?
“A Family of Tyrants are trading a much needed supply of Medicine with another settlement to bolster their own ranks with Recruits (need).”
If I understand it correctly, this could remove the Recruits (need), but also give them Medicine (need). Its this possible? Or can’t you trade the ‘neutral’ Medicine Medicine resource? Thoughts?
