Story: Noctua Spell
Contributions from: Pistax, maybe Phoenix and Blackvision
Phillipe frowned as he put down the newspaper. On it was in big fat letters the headline:
Another missing tourist was found to be sacrificed to the Trance god in the Anagogic Archipelago
“Oh goodness, another one!” Kwame remarked, after having climbed on a chair so he could actually read the newspaper headline.
“Those priests have been getting quite adventurous lately. Those tourists even had two armed bodyguards with them as a precaution.” Phillipe explained. He was about to add more when he noticed Yu and Min-Jeong coming into the reading room.
“I could not believe my eyes Min-Jeong! They seriously had someone bound to a pole and were about to sacrifice him!” Yu waved his makeshift wings as he enthusiastically continued his story. “If we hadn’t stopped them they would have probably killed the guy!”
“It is most troubling how little regard these types of humans have for a life. I accompanied Anna and Agatha to the Andes recently. We had expected a couple of violent llamas, but for some reason the locals had left an entire horde of them alone.” Min-Jeong calmly explained, wondering if she would have to dodge one of Wang’s wings.
“Why were those llamas all gathered there?” Kwame asked curiously. Min-Jeong shrugged: “We unfortunately had to evacuate before we could figure out why those llamas were gathered in the area.”
“Maybe that peace-loving guy we ran into the other day took up a new hobby.” Philippe smirked at that thought.
“We cannot let this continue! We have to do something!” Kwame declared quite energetically despite his old age.
Yu nodded thoughtfully and then an enormous smirk spread over his face: “I know a way to spread the message throughout the society! Phillipe, let’s hang up enormous fireworks that explode when someone walks underneath them and sprinkles them in “We need to stop those savages!” confetti!”
Philipe smirked: “Sounds like fun.”
The rest of the explorers present wisely decided to evacuate the premises.

- You must visit Anagogic, Andes and Lost island (in any order) during your run

Your Score is your Renown:

- SILVER: 7000 Renown (2MP*)
- GOLD: 14000 Renown (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.
