"..." Ivan pointed at Charles and Jan-Piet.
"Okay, so you will choose those two to go with you on the expedition?" Pinkerton asked.
"It's settled then, Charles, Jan-Piet, you'll be joining Ivan on an expedition to study some scientific abnormalities that we've heard rumors about around the world." Pinkerton said. Ivan nodded in the background.
"Wait you're picking us for a science expedition? Why? There is no sense in picking anyone other than the scientists for this." Charles complained to Ivan.
"..." Ivan just stared at Charles.
"Fine. You usually know what you're doing, so I guess we will have to do it." Charles gave up, he knew trying to discuss with Ivan would be just like talking to a brick wall. When Ivan made his choice there was no way to change his mind.
"Charles may be okay with it, but why would you choose me? Remember what happened at the archaeologist convention. They did some searching afterwards and confirmed that most I told them was lies." Jan-Piet complained, trying to get Ivan to pick someone other than him.
"..." Ivan shook his head and pulled Jan-Piet with him.
"Best of luck to you all, and remember, we need those studies more than anything else right now!" Pinkerton yelled after Ivan who had grabbed both Charles and Jan-Piet.
Determined that he had chosen the perfect team, he more or less dragged them both with him to the airship, and set off.
- Captain must be Ivan
- Charles and Jan-Piet have to be your crew
- You must play on Adventure mode.
Your score is your Renown + Half of your Science
- BRONZE: 4000 points (1MP*)
- SILVER: 10000 points (2MP*)
- GOLD: 17500 points (3MP*)
- PLATINUM: 24000 points (3MP+**)
Gold and Platinum medals may only be achieved without losing, though Silver and Bronze are still possible to get with just the Record sheet for that trip.
** The platinum medal is extraordinary and can only be achieved on Classic or Impossible difficulty without losing. It doesn't increase Medal Points further than a Gold medal, but we will track how many you have.
