Tagline : The road branches off, and just one path is right for you. Will you pick the correct one?

"You must strike fear into your opponent, demoralize them, and then take them down and take whatever you want" Stated Charles. "No, you must befriend the native, so the expedition goes smoothly and noone gets hurt" countered Pedrinho. "You're all fools. Just destroy everyone you meet in a fight and make things simple" Molly argued.

And spout from all the explorers. All of them had different ways of conduct with the natives, and they all tried to convince the other that their ways are wrong. "Upsetting the natives is a good way to bring trouble your way" Said Victor. "You'll never get anywhere trying to make friends all the time." coming in from Anna. "Are you stupid or do you want to die? "Boldly stated Min-Jeong.

Every time a team came back from exploring, they would state how much more effective their ways were compared to the others. It was a neverending cycle in the society, but today was especially harsh. Everyone was at it with everyone (Except for Hildegard, who shyly stayed in her room)

Pinkerton become too irritated with all the noise, and came out of his office and yelled "THAT'S ENOUGH" Everyone immedietly stopped and froze in place. "Your constant arguing of conduit is not only a serious detriment to your relationships in expeditions, but it's also starting to make headlines with how often you bring it up in the public eye."

"But....." Earl tried to bump in, but Pinkerton interrupted with "No butts." "everyone has their own way of doing things, It's a fact of life. Learn to get along now, or face consequences" And with that, Pinkerton would make his way back to his office.

".................." A silence struck and room, until Phailin spoke. "Perhaps there is a good way to settle this argument" "What's this you have in mind?" asked Bia. "How about everyone who thinks their way is the best teams up with others on an expedition? Let's see just how well each team does and make our conclusions from there."

The explorers disscused this with eachother, and all agreed to the challenge. "Let's show them that the devious explorer always wins the prize" Stated Yvonne. "A friendly gesture shall always bring fortune to all" Said Kwame. "LET'S BLOW THINGS UP!" Yu blurted out.

  • PLATINUM: 17000 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.
