Purpose:

When you sign up for the game, you will select what land type you were on before the apocalypse. Obviously some of the landscape will have changed, but there are certain advantages and disadvantages provided by those pre-apocalyptic land types. From being able to find more people or having a hard time finding and producing food, choosing your land type is a very important decision. Advanced resources needed for the focus paths are also a big consideration when choosing what land type your camp will exist on since certain resources are more prevalent on specific land types. Be sure to keep in mind the advantages and disadvantages of the different class types and consider which of the focus paths you might choose when choosing your terrain. Remember, if you accidentally choose the wrong terrain when signing up or if you want to change your terrain, as long as you haven't ended more than 9 turns, you can change to a new terrain on the Camp Setup page.
