Here you can see how to make a base.
YOU HAVE TO LIVE AT YOUR BASE FOR AT LEAST TWO WEEKS BEFORE ABANDONING IT!
The base is your place. You can here write a chaptered story, like this. You can use this base as template.
You can have as many bases as you want (only one in each town though), but there has to be at least one survivor at the base to make it yours. This survivor can't leave the town.
If you leave the base, please add it back as a location. It may be empty, but people may want to use it as base. You can also leave some of your stuff at the base when you leave it.
When you take over a location, remove it from the location-list, and add it to the base-list. See here.
On the base page, you have to specify who is living there, and also that it is your base. You also have to link to your group.
And yes, you get everything in the base once you take over the location. If the location has an infection rate, all survivors that will live there get their infection rate raised.
The infection rate drops once you've taken over the place.
Leaving survivors behindEdit
If you leave someone behind, you get to keep the base. This/These survivor(s) will have shared supplies, capacity, scavenge runs, etc. with the rest. However, this/these survivor(s) can't go on scavenge run with the ones who left, leaving you with less survivors to carry supplies. You still have to feed all survivors.
