I've recently begun running a game of MYZ for our group, and while so much immediately made sense - as this is a wonderful game that automatically hooked each player in a different way - there's one little thing that came up in tonight's game that I wanted clarification on. I'm still going through the rulebook, though, so I may have overlooked this somewhere, or it might be that I'm overthinking it!
The Food Supply aspect of the Development Levels (found on page 101 of the rulebook) states that in the 0 to 9 rating, it's a one-to-one ratio of bullet-to-grub purchase/exchange, and then beginning at level 10 to 19, it's a one-to-two bullet-to-grub purchase/exchange. The word "grub" is used time and again, but... does this also refer to water? If the Ark has some source of water for its inhabitants, a player asked if he could purchase water in the same way.
I'm of a few minds regarding this, and one quick answer is, "No," simply because grub (canned goods, food that doesn't spoil quickly, etc.) isn't as easy to find as stuff like Rot-water that can then simply be boiled to produce safe water. In the moment, though, I ruled that he could exchange a bullet for some water so that we could move the scene along. I made a note to come here and ask what the rest of you thought, though, and if you might have interpreted that differently.
Thank you all in advance for your time and consideration! Good gaming to you and yours.
Edit/Addendum: A player at the table took the Talent to be able to make Rot-water safe to drink.
