Re: Challenge #37: Go for Gold

That turned out nicely, 3498 renown from gold, well over half of which came from Mali. I had a bit of a scare when the insight spending was still at the 2.25x multiplier, but apparently the +100% only takes effect once one starts the final expedition. And luckily the Star was there this time, Molly ...

Re: Challenge #36: Paper Pressure

Darwin's debuffs increase with the amount of replies you've given him. If I remember correctly, one is unlocked in Egypt, and another requires a mean party member. I've only ever seen it reach (2) though. It can go up to (3). There's 2 more you didn't mention: having a level 6 Naturalist and having...

Re: Challenge #36: Paper Pressure

My finally-completed game intended for Challenge 34 should qualify for Bronze in Challenge 36. I should have thought to reroute to Hungary and Highlands when I started playing again this past week, but I didn't. :p Pretty sure I won't have the time or energy to play a new game for this challenge, so...

Re: #Challenge #34: For Science!

I will not be able to complete this challenge in time. My eldest cat (only age 12) is dying of lung cancer - very fast acting, just a week ago I noticed his sudden weight loss and called my vet for an appointment... :'( Posting my game as far as I got, in case it qualifies for a Bronze. I'm pretty s...

Re: Challenge #33: Don't Go Too Far!

Yeah, I saw that! Wow, I did *not* expect top 5! On the patch notes, does anyone know what "Auctioneer and Impressionist Entourage removed from Stockholm due to misfitting" means? I've never seen this game use the terms Auctioneer or Impressionist before. Does that mean that specialists for specific...

Re: Challenge #33: Don't Go Too Far!

So, this "taste the rainbow" strategy intrigued me, and I made a third attempt... So much for taking a break for a few days! :P Seems like Dolores is the ideal captain to start chugging skittlesbrau, Prof. Proskuriakova is required in the first combat entourage slot, and I decided to take Charles fo...

Re: Challenge #33: Don't Go Too Far!

Just completed a second attempt, using the Molly(C)-Harry-Philippe rogue-stacking crew. It's quick and easy, but requires Harry's story to be a high-scoring crew. Without it I was severely short on status and ended up with 6402 renown. I'm sure the Star of Africa would have helped (Mali was a Mask o...

Ah, you're allowed to move trinkets between characters, just not between a character and the green box of unequipped items. Good to know, thanks!

I'm guessing there's supposed to be a background graphic there, right?

Re: Challenge #33: Don't Go Too Far!

Edit: better run posted later on (next page). ----- OK, got The Leprechaun with the right treasure bonus finally: challenge33.png I have to agree with adambomb, I have no clue how the experts get such amazingly high scores. This is toward the high end of what I anticipated, and the only way I can se...
