Entourage

From Renowned Explorers: International Society Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Your Status can be spent to attract Helpers and Specialists to your Entourage during the Preparation phase between Expeditions. Helpers increase the value of your Tokens whereas Specialists help you collect more tokens and provide perks for your party.

Helpers[edit | edit source]

There are five types of helpers by default. There is one type of helper unlockable through Research: the Barterer. The base cost listed below is the price required to buy the first helper. The price increases depending on the number of helpers you currently own. The price increase is 50% of the base cost for the second and third helpers. The fourth through the tenth helpers have a price increase of 40% of base cost. The eleventh through the fourteenth helpers after this point have a price increase of 30%. Additional helpers after this point have a price increase of 20%.

Note: Journalists' and Traders' prices increase at half the rate of the other Helpers.

Note: the starter islands all have a node where a helper can be recruited, which counts towards future helper costs. Viking Landing can recruit a Lobbyist, Saxon Kings can recruit a Merchant and Celtic Code can recruit a Journalist.

Any Helpers collected in expeditions, from Research Papers, Captain or Crew perks or Campfire Cards are free, but do increase the costs of any future Helper purchases. The exception to this rule is when you gain Helpers by any non-shop means while using Suh Min-Joeng as your Captain: the Helpers purchased in shops are a different type of Helper in this regard, and their costs are not increased in shops if collecting Helpers from other sources, effectively making Helpers cheaper for Min-Joeng to purchase in the long run as they will not scale up as far, though the degree to which this applies varies according to how many are purchased.

Name Effect Base Cost
Journalist +1-2 Status from Encounter 60
Lobbyist +1-2 Status from Campaign 60
Merchant +1-2 Gold from Collect 40
Student +1-2 Research from Study 100
Trader +1-2 Gold from Encounter 60
Barterer +1 Supplies Capacity 120
