Challenge #139: Yard Sale
Concept: Liort
Story: Pikminenco
Contributions from: DHBTVS, Flamestalker, Blackvision

The hallways of the society looked like a battleground, but not because a battle actually occurred. In fact, that was the entire reason the place looked like it was a battle arena. Bia had told all the explorers that the anti-explorers would launch an attack on the society. Everybody decided to help defend it, some of them got really worked up and were looking for a fight and thus were very tense. When the day finally came all the doors were locked up and any appointments were cancelled. They waited and waited but nothing happened. The explorers got upset. Had they given up an entire day to just stare at the front door to see if an opponent would enter? They got angry and needed a scapegoat. They would all blame Bia’s spies, but because they weren’t around Bia had to do instead.. She insisted fighting all of them since she thought she was innocent, but there was no way she could take on everyone at once. So she decided to do a ‘’tactical retreat’’ and wait for it to blow over. She fled to the basement and hid inside an empty supply box. However she was not alone, Earl was also in the box.

‘’So remind me why you are here again?’’ Bia asked.
‘’Oh you know, blew something up, said I was really really sorry, they wouldn’t believe me. The normal stuff really.’’ Earl responded. Bia peeked out of the box to see if nobody was coming. She then lowered her head again.
‘’It is not that bad.’’ Earl continued. ‘’I am sure that all of this will blow over in a week.’’
Bia sighed. ‘’That's still a long time to sit in a box and do nothing.’’
Earl leaned back and smiled. ‘’’Don’t worry, it's easy to get used to.’’

  • Your Captain is Hatice.
  • Earl and Bia are banned.
  • One of your other two crew members must be a natural Tactician.
  • The society needs to sell its now surplus weapons. A penalty will be given for each item that you have on the list.
  • You must play on Adventure mode.
Your Score is your Renown - any penalties. You will lose 1000 points for having any treasure from the following list:

Celtic Horned Helmet, Executioner's Axe, Sword of Justice, Ulfberth Sword, Viking Helmet, Viking Shield, Freyja's Spear, Songhai Sword, Hungarian Mix, Liddesdale Sword,
Sacred Dagger, Hero's Banner, , Royal Kris, Roche's Anchor, Baba Yaga's Broom,
  • BRONZE: 3000 Points (1MP*)
  • SILVER: 8000 Points (2MP*)
  • GOLD: 13000 Points (3MP*)
  • PLATINUM: 17000 Points (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.
