"*sigh*. Another day, another grey sky, it even looks like rain. *Sigh*. How can people even like being in this place I'll never understand." Pedrinho sitting by himself staring out of the window.
"Yesterday it was clouded, the day before that, and the day before that as well, I've had it! This is too much for one man to handle!" Pedrinho slammed his fist on the table, pushed the chair away and ran towards Pinkerton's office.
"Sir! Siiir!" Pedrinho slammed the door open to Pinkerton's office. Pinkerton stood there with Emilia both looking shockingly at Pedrinho.
"What is the meaning of this? Have you never heard of knocking?" Pinkerton was mad, he thought he had taught his explorers better manners than that.
"Can't you see I'm with someone else at the moment?" Pinkerton points at Emilia who still looked shockingly at Pedrinho.
"I'm sorry sir. I just heard something really amazing, and I was sure it would catch your interest." Pedrinho tried to lie his way through this.
"I'm sure it can wait, I'm nearly done signing papers for Emilia's new plant discoveries." Pinkerton sneered and pointed at the door.
Pedrinho sighed, left the office and closed the door behind him.
10 minutes later, Emilia came whistling out of the office with a stack of papers in hand. She's probably going to win another prize for a new discovery. Pedrinho thought to himself.
Pedrinho this time knocked on the door before letting himself into the office.
"So what is it you wanna bother me with this time?" Pinkerton asked still mad at Pedrinho for earlier.
"You see, I've heard that there is this amazing treasure hiding somewhere in the Caribbean area." Pedrinho said. A new treasure was the best lie he could think of to make Pinkerton let him go.
"Ohoo? I'm listening, and why haven't we heard of this "new" treasure before?" Pinkerton was skeptic, if there were new treasures to be found surely he would be the first to know.
"Oh umm, it's actually one of my brothers who, uncovered a secret tunnel, but they are too scared to search it and asked me to gather a crew and go see what's in it." Pinkerton smiled sly.
"I see, I see, but that's a tunnel, not exactly a treasure. You see the difference?" Pinkerton was not falling for it, he could easily see that Pedrinho was lying to him.
"Yes, Yes but think about what could be in that tunnel, maybe some amazing treasures, I'm really raring to go sir, can I? Please?." Pedrinho started begging for permission.
"*Sigh*. Fine, you can go. But you better find something worthwhile your time there." Pinkerton didn't feel like he had the time to deny Pedrinho. So he thought it would be better to just let him go.
"Yeeees!. You won't regret it sir! I'll gather a crew and we'll be off soon!" Pedrinho ran out of the office, but he completely forgot.
Who should he pick to go with him?
- Pedrinho must be captain
- You must visit atleast 3 of these tropical expeditions: Caribbean, Andean, Emerged, Anagogic
- You must play on Adventure mode.
Your score is your renown
- BRONZE: 3000 (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.
