Re: Challenge #40: Digging for Ghosts

Try the skull next time with a tool, the necromancer event is so funny! :D I think that's actually the problem with Andes - any purple node there really needs a tool for you to have enough chance to be worth spinning. I'd already spent my tool getting to the Alpacalypse encounter (and I do love tha...

Re: Challenge #40: Digging for Ghosts

First attempt gives me a floor of silver (I'll edit screenshots into this post if I don't get anything better on the upcoming second attempt). It wasn't until just before starting expedition 3 that I realized I'd misread the challenge, I had been thinking *Lost* Island was the mandatory one with dou...

Re: Challenge #39: VIP

I think it depends on how much you like to plan your games out, and how much endurance you have for restarting :P. Personally, I love planning, and absolutely hate restarting. I think the issue is that there's a lot of randomness in this game. Which is great, that's why it has such replayability! B...

Re: Challenge #39: VIP

Meh, only a silver. ch39.png ch39perks.png I do not like this type of highly RNG-dependent challenge at all. It was pretty clear from the moment I saw Stockholm after the first expedition that Platinum was highly unlikely (though not strictly impossible, as in my first attempt). That turned out to b...

Re: Challenge #38: The Egyptiotes

Thanks. I was just reading up on the Steam discussions of Challenge 39, specifically http://steamcommunity.com/app/296970/discussions/0/351660338696874310/ I had thought that the opposite-perk would be specific to the character gaining the perk, not the person to whom they are opposite. So in the Em...

Re: Challenge #38: The Egyptiotes

Thank you for the extended deadline Manuel! Third time's the charm (game 2: Jan-Piet, Bia, Harry, dead in Hungary on expedition 2 - another supply-unfriendly map layout, plus two glass cannons with only JP's rather weak heal to keep them up). This one's not good enough for Platinum, but that's OK si...

Re: Challenge #38: The Egyptiotes

Well that sucked. ch38fail.png Yet another Bronze... Haste due to the shorter deadline plus a *really* supply-sucking layout of Transylvania made the boss fight unwinnable. I don't think my execution of the Secret strategy would have been good enough for more than a silver anyway, with the new highe...

Just found another one - Boris the Claw (Werewolf)'s "Remember the Human" debuff icon is a blank white square.

Re: How to get more Renown

Sorry for the slow response! I'll try to organize advice in order of complexity. Don't worry, we were all in your position when we started. Well, I was, at least. :-) 1.
