Expeditions

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

Every adventure will consist of a number of different Expeditions, through which you will gather Resources and Treasures. The player will be graded after your 5th completed Expedition based on the amount of Renown they've gathered. After the 5th Expedition, the player can still continue to play in Marathon Mode, but Achievements and Leaderboards are disabled until a new Adventure is started.

Each Expedition can only be completed once on every adventure, and most Expeditions will only unlock after a certain of other Expeditions have already been completed. This is indicated by the Difficulty of the expedition, though the player is free to choose a lower Difficulty (except Difficulty 1) Expedition than they would be allowed to visit.

Two Expeditions, Andean Adventure and The Lost Island, are unlocked through the More to Explore Expansion and can only be accessed by players who own it.

One Expedition, Anagogic Archipelago, is unlocked through The Emperor's Challenge Expansion and can only be accessed by players who own it.

Difficulty 1 Expeditions[edit | edit source]

The first Expedition is chosen randomly, but the player can choose to 'Restart Expedition' from the game's menu to quickly restart on a different random first Expedition with the same crew composition. The player can never elect to complete another Difficulty 1 Expedition during the same adventure.

Despite being located in different parts of Europe, the Difficulty 1 Expeditions have quite a few Events, Enemies, and Treasures in common. Their final encounter is also chosen from among the same pool of three opponents.
