Tagline : Start the year right by training your body and bringing peace to the world

The society's entrance hall was packed with explorers. Many if them were gone for a few days to visit family members or loved ones. The next one to enter was Charles.
''Another fine and new exploration filled year I presume?'' he asked to everyone in the hall. Many of them nodded and a few even expressed their excitement.
''You bet! I,ve got so many new places I want to visit!'' Kwame said.
''Me too! Even more exciting wonders waiting on the edges of the world than last year.'' Emilia said. Jan-Piet, who was doing push ups, started laughing. The other remarked his laughter. He got up and explained himself.
''If you want to explore all these new locations you better start training your body, otherwise you wont have the strength and energy to keep yourself standing,'' he said. Emilia started thinking.
''You do have a point there.'' At the same time Kiwi jumped of the couch with a large piece of bread in her mouth.
''I,m already training. If I keep running I will grow stronger and loose weight. Then I have to eat more to become stronger again. Which means I have to run again. So I have to eat more.'' she said while she was still chewing.
''You are not getting fit that way. That's just a scheme to eat more.'' Emilia said. Kiwi looked at her with glaring look.
''I...don't see the problem.''
''You can't just go around running and eating and saying that your healthy!''
''If you want to actually get fit for the year be my guest but i,m not joining.''
''Well maybe I will! Who here will join me?''
Jan-Piet shook his head. ''Not me, I already have other things to improve.''
Earl turned the final bolt on his new machine.
''I also have a great resolution! This year, none of my invention will explode!'' Earl stated enthusiastically. Charles raised an eyebrow.
''I,m sure they wont. So what is that contraption over there then?'' he asked.
''Oh that is my automatic tent packer, see if you press this button the....'' As Earl pressed the button his invention blew up right in his face. He now had several springs and parts stuck in his hair.
''Well...'' he said as he took out one of the springs.''...there is always next year.'' he said with a smile.

  • Anyone can be your Captain or on your crew, except for the Gluttons*
  • You must finish your run with Friendly as your primary attitude
  • You get Bonus Points for each Athlete perk on Explorers that are not Natural Athletes**
  • You must play on Adventure mode.
* Gluttonous is a hidden trait some explorers have, these explorers are not allowed to be used this challenge. They are Jan-Piet, Kiwi, Dolores, Yu and Phillipe
** A Natural Athlete is someone who can learn Athlete Perks through leveling up, like Ivan and Molly. You will not get bonus points for Athlete perks on these explorers, but you can bring them if you want.

Your Score is your Renown + Bonus Points

You get a 1000 Bonus Points for each Athlete Perk on explorers that do not learn Athlete perks through leveling

  • PLATINUM: 32000 Points (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.
