"I'm amazed at how you managed to get such clean cuts." Yvonne told Phillipe.
"It does require a lot of precision and a steady hand to make a fatal cut, but with the right knowhow everyone can do it." Phillipe responded.
"It's way too dangerous an approach to have, you'll never know what a furious person is capable of! And why do you have to use an aggressive approach anyway? Why can't we all just act nice and get along with each other?" Emilia asked sitting behind Yvonne and Phillipe.
"So you were eavesdropping?" Yvonne asked Emilia and skulked at her.
"Well, you weren't really being quiet about it and I felt it necessary to state my opinion on the matter." Emilia began to lecture.
"As a scientist there is no use for ruthlessness and aggression, everything can be done by talking it out and by doing so avoid such things as fatal wounds." Emilia assured them.
"I will not disagree that words can be as strong if not stronger than straight up wounding someone. Because sticks and stones may break your bones, but words can leave psychological wounds that may never heal." Yvonne smiled sadistically.
"But Yvonne!" A voice came from the door.
"Wouldn't make much sense to send you out as a science captain, since you're just a lowly speaker." Agatha walked into the room taunting Yvonne.
"Lowly?!! I'll have you know that Pinkerton regards us speakers way higher than you scientists, who are always causing trouble like blowing up the lab, inventing worthless machineries that not only cost a lot of money, but also take up a lot of space? Hmph. I cannot imagine anyone but you to think that scientists are all that!" Yvonne was quick to raise her voice, clearly angered by Agatha's statement and slammed down her hand on the table.
"It seems really easy what we must do here. You three against one another, to prove what style of yours is the best. Of course we should have you focus on science because, heh well you're all scientists, but frankly I simply can't be bothered by such trivial things, so go out and get some renown for the sake of your group!" Yvonne commanded them as if she ran the place.
Emilia, Phillipe and Agatha just looked at each other. They smiled and started making plans for their expeditions
- Agatha, Phillipe or Emilia must be captain.
- Your crew can be anyone but Agatha, Phillipe and Emelia
- If Phillipe is chosen as captain: must end overall Aggressive attitude
- If Agatha is chosen as captain: must end overall Devious attitude
- If Emilia is chosen as captain: must end overall Friendly attitude
- You must play on Adventure mode.
- BRONZE: 2500 (1MP*)
- SILVER: 7000 (2MP*)
- GOLD: 13000 (3MP*)
- PLATINUM: 17000 (3MP+**)
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.
