The Renowned Explorers hall was surprisingly quiet as the sun neared its zenith, the festivities following the Championship impacting the daily life of the Society.
"Ding, ding, ding-" - the clock chimed its way to 12
"Ooooh, make it stop!" Harry groaned. He buried his head under his arms. Next to him Emilia started nodding vigorously but regretted it immediately and rested her head back on Ivan's side. Pretty much everybody looked tired and exhausted. The room reeked of alcohol. Even the teetotalers looked barely awake.
On one table, Agatha was happily eating one sandwich after the other. "What's with you all?", she asked in her mocking voice. "Haven't you been on enough expeditions with me?" Kiwi just mimicked her.
Finally, Pinkerton stood up and cleared his throat. "Explorers, as entertaining and inspiring as that was, we must still all explore - use this inspiration in your next adventure. Just- go away and keep busy. Elsewhere" He turned and wobbled out while murmuring something about "...while I take a quick nap."
- Every Captain and Crew are available
- Only the top 3 scores with different captains get platinum medals (and must achieve at least a Gold Medal)
- Each captain may only achieve 1 Platinum Medal (Only the top-scorer for that captain)
- You must play on Adventure mode.
Your Score is your Renown, the highest 3 scores of different captains can earn a Platinum
- BRONZE: 3000 Renown (1MP*)
- SILVER: 8000 Renown (2MP*)
- GOLD: 16000 Renown (3MP*)
- PLATINUM: The top 3 Scores with different Captains and at least a Gold medal (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.
