It's the regular meeting, and Lady Vaduva is filling in for Pinkerton. "One last matter. As you will have noticed, Pinkerton isn't here today. He sends his apologies, but he's helping with the preparations for his niece's wedding.” This caused a murmur to go around the room. Most of them didn't know he had a niece. “I'm sure you'll join me in wanting to get them a present, but what to get?”
“It's obvious,” Agatha said dismissively. “We should get them something old, like a treasure from an ancient civilization perhaps. The Malians, the Egyptians, the Inca...”
“No!” Interrupted Anna. “It should be something new and useful. A great discovery or an invention... Perhaps some kind of electrical appliance.”
“Sorry ladies. But I think you are both wrong...” said Harry. “This close to the wedding all the best gifts will already be taken. So we might have to 'borrow' something.”
“But we need to keep it a secret. We don't want to spoil the surprise,” said Hildegard, pulling some blue flowers from her top hat with a flourish.”
“They are all excellent ideas.” Lady Vaduva said, trying to regain a little order. “Whatever we get, I'm sure it will be lovely. Just make sure to deliver it to the Highlands when you've decided. It's important we get to the church on time.”
- Find Something Old: Visit one of the ancient civilizations. (Mali, Egypt or the Andes)
- Find Something New: You should completely research one of the advanced sciences. (Anthropology, Psychology, Engineering, Natural Sciences.)
- Find Something Borrowed: Your crew should contain a natural Rogue*
- Find Something Blue: You need to end with a Devious reputation of level 3 ( at least 3 expeditions need to be finished Devious)
- Get To The Church On Time: Your fifth expedition must be the Highlands, because that's where the wedding is happening.
- BRONZE: 2000 points (1MP*)
- SILVER: 5000 points (2MP*)
- GOLD: 7500 points (3MP*)
- PLATINUM: 12000(3MP+**)
** 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.
- Remember to include screenshots of your completed research tree as well as your end-game screen!
