Personal Campfire Story[edit | edit source]

The Lovely Lady: One selected crew member (besides Maria) falls in love with Maria. They like her instantly, and will gather the courage to speak to her during the next Expedition and, regardless of the result, admire her afterwards. If the crew member is Mean, Maria becomes wary of them in return.A character who likes dancing will gain encounter tokens here. During the next expedition, they profess their love and (except for Ivan) Maria will send them away. The crew also gains 3 Encounter tokens. This does not change their relationship any further, though.
