Phillipe was snoring lightly when he was awoken by a pat on his shoulder.
"Good one! they totally bought that the newspaper was holy." Harry remarked while passing by with the other pranksters who giggled.
"Their faces! " Another prankster added.
huh...? Phillipe thought sleepily.
He then remembered the newspaper tale Ivan and Maria told last week
but he didn't have anything to do with that....
Phillipe stood up, irritated by this riddle.
Of course a newspaper with a big bird on it wouldn't be holy! He thought before almost bumping into Min-Jeong on his way out
"Oh sorry." He apologised
"It's alright. I heard you were the one who placed the newspaper. After taking a look at it I had to remark on your excellent choice of archealogical sites."
Min-Jeong actually retrieved the newspaper from the bag she was carrying.
"They just gave that to you?!" Phillipe asked surprised.
Min-Jeong gave him a short look with a definitely failing poker face.
"Fair enough." He shrugged
"I want you to accompany me to Andes in search of this site." Min-Jeong pointed a quite sober looking place in what seemed to be woods. The only thing really standing out where all those llama's in the background. It could be Andes, but then again it could be somewhere else.
"I can accompany you, but I want all mechanical parts, metals, and otherwise handy tools for engineering we chance upon in return."
Min-Jeong beamed.

  • Your captain must be Min-Jeong
  • You must bring Phillipe as a crewmember. The other crewmember can be anyone
  • You must visit Andes (can be at any point, you just need to go there)
  • Main resource has to be science
  • Executioner's Axe is banned (if you want to avoid getting this, dont go Saxon Kings)
  • You must play on Adventure mode.
Your Score is your Renown
  • BRONZE: 3000 renown (1MP*)
  • SILVER: 7000 renown (2MP*)
  • GOLD: 13000 renown (3MP*)
  • PLATINUM: 20000 renown (3MP+**)
* 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.
