Story:
Hildegard happily hummed as Min-Jeong neatly packed the last of their tea set and supplies. Personally, she thought that Min-Jeong obsessed way too much over organizing the package and what not. However, she knew that at least nothing would break accidentally while travelling.

Min-Jeong signalled to Hildegard that they were ready. Hildegard conjured up a bouquet of flowers out of nowhere with a bow and together they made their way to Pinkerton’s office. Min-Jeong shook her head at Hildegard’s antics, though it had surprised her how well the two of them got along once they accepted each other’s quirks.

“Pinkerton! We need to ask you something!” Hildegard practically yelled as she opened the door to the office. Pinkerton looked up exasperatedly at the lack of knocking, but he just couldn’t help but cut his youngest explorers some slack.

“What can I help you two ladies with?” As expected, Hildegard positively glowed at being called a lady and together with Min-Jeong explained they were having a tea party! Pinkerton chuckled.

“How exciting! How could I possibly help with that?”

“We would like your permission to set out to various places to have tea-parties there.” Min-Jeong matter-of-factly explained. Pinkerton just stared at her for a moment.

“Just... the two of you?” He asked to clarify. They both nodded as if that was perfectly reasonable as all kinds of horror scenarios went through Pinkerton’s head.



Cultists kidnapping the two children and offering them to some pagan god. Monkeys stealing their food and they would starve in the wilderness. Giant birds attacking them! Pirates holding them hostage for money! DINOSAURS EATING THEM. AAAAAH! .

Then a genius idea struck Pinkerton through his panic. “But who would carry your luggage? Surely you do not want to lug it around all the time?” Min-Jeong and Hildegard looked at each other and grimaced. Their pack had become quite heavy...

“I feel obligated to help you two with your tea-party. I will write up a list of available people to choose from and one of them will come along as your body-... tea-party assistant!” Pinkerton concluded relieved.

Hildegard and Min-Jeong agreed and happily left his office.


Rules:
  • Hildegard and Min-Jeong are required
  • Third crewmember has to have a starting armour value (including their starter equipment) higher than 15, so 15 itself is not allowed. This means: Molly, Hojo, Charles, and all the fighters
  • Anyone of those three crewmembers can be captain
  • You must play on Adventure mode.
  • Your Score is your renown
Scoring:
[*]BRONZE: 3000 (1MP*)
[*]SILVER: 7000 (2MP*)
[*]GOLD: 13000 (3MP*)
[*]PLATINUM: 17000 (3MP+**)[/list]
* Number of medal points awarded when playing on Classic Difficulty. Easy and Normal give less, according to these rules.
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.

Story ideas:
How did Pinkerton convince the bodyguard/tea-party assistant to come along? How does this person feel about coming along. Do Min-Jeong and Hildegard realise this? Will they have succesful tea-parties?
