Challenge #44: Community is King

Next week the first community-run challenge will start. To honour that I thought I take community itself as an inspiration. This one's to you! "Ladies and gentlemen of this fine society" the chairman started. "I'm very proud to have gathered such fine talent in this place." At that remark Ivan put h...

Challenge #43: International Day of Peace

Challenge #43 is inspired by the International Day of Peace, which was this Wednesday, September 21st. It's a nice fit for Renowned Explorers as neither violence nor pacifism is forced in this game. This means that the use of violence is always a conscious choice by you, the player. For this challen...

Challenge #42: Our Powers Combined

In this nicely numbered challenge we'll be looking at a new kind of optimization. That of crew stats, offensive ones to be specific. Let's see how that turns out! I'll be tallying up stats for the previous challenge later tonight. In the meanwhile you won't have to wait for this one. Anna and Yvonne...

Challenge #40: Digging for Ghosts

Challenge #40 is the first challenge after Patch 19, which is a good chance to put a spotlight on the Emerged Island, which is hiding some new secrets. The Emerged Island only surfaces very rarely, and visiting it is seen as one of the Great Dangers of exploration. The Society doesn't like to force ...

Re: Challenge #39: VIP

Results are up here.

Thanks for the feedback, Worblehat. More people have said something similiar, whereas others really liked this extremely difficult challenge. I think it depends on how much you like to plan your games out, and how much endurance you have for restarting :P.

Of course you can only add to that, so we hope to see you there! Because this will be a historic stream ...

Challenge #39: VIP

Next week Tuesday will see Patch 19 officially released. With the delay in posting this challenge this would give you two days less than normal to finish before the game balance changes. Instead I will let this challenge run until Wednesday (like normal). If you want to play the challenge after the ...
