I have been on the fence about buying Dead of Winter for over a year - I'm very interested, but it seems like it would be such a depressing experience, though obviously not based on the plethora of reviews I've read.

One thing though that I can never seem to find an answer to is if there is a way to raise morale? Everything brings it down making it seem like it will be incredibly easy to lose the game. Can it ever go up?

Yes, if you over achieve on a crisis card then you can often raise moral by a point.

For example, you may need to find X medicine tokens, and if you have X+2 you get an extra moral.

Honestly though, you are usually better hoarding those for the next crisis as it is usually quite hard to meet a crisis and then have stuff spare.

As mentioned you can always over fill the crisis to gain one moral, and also a number of crossroad cards will raise moral - if you make the right choice...

There is also a (new) character in the game who can permit you to try to raise morale if a game effect would cause it to go down (once per round).

Actually, I believe that depends a lot on the number of players. If you've got a 5 player game, 2 cards for an extra Morale is a great deal since you might be able to save 5 cards on a later Crisis. In a 3 player game, the value is a bit less.
