Skills

Jump to: navigation, search

Skills are areas of expertise where a crew member might excel in. Renowned Explorers knows ten different Skill types, each consisting of a number of different Perks. A character's Level in each Skill is equal to the number of Perks they possess within that Skill. Having a crew member with a certain level in a skill might give additional options in Events, or give additional bonuses from Research, Treasures, or Entourage.

Obtaining Perks[edit | edit source]

Each crew member starts with two Perks, and gains a choice between two different additional Perks when they reach experience levels 2 and 4. Each character has two Natural Skills, which are the Skills they have access to either by starting with their Perks, or being able to select their Perks on later levels. Further Perks can be obtained through:

  • Equipping Trinkets or other Equipment. These Perks are bound to the item and will be lost when the item is unequipped.
  • Many Entourage members give a selected crew member an additional Perk. Entourage members are randomly selected, but will always have the same Perk (or choice between two Perks) associated with them.
  • Events might give a crew member an additional Perk. Most Expeditions include multiple of these events, which give a character one specific perk. Usually only one is available per Expedition, though.
  • Opening the Observations Research tree gives the player one Science-related Perk of their choice to a selected crew member.
  • Certain Campfire Stories give the player the opportunity to give a character additional Perks. These Perks are usually predetermined by the Campfire Story card.

Perk Sources[edit | edit source]

Below are all ways that each Perk can be obtained. In the case of Entourage, the location where the Specialist can be hired and its level are listed. In the case of Equipment, the location where the item is sold is listed.
Certain Campfire Stories may also grant specific perks, or a perk of the player's choice. Treasures might come with an option to gain a certain perk, give an item that bestows a perk, or might have a fixed bonus to bestow a perk for those playing without More to Explore.

Perk Benefits[edit | edit source]

A perk will give a character the following benefits:

  • Increased Stats, based on the type of perk.
  • An increased chance of succeeding on Adventure Wheel spins which involve that type of skill.
  • Access to certain Events that might have different outcomes when a crew member possesses a specific Perk, or a sufficient level in a certain Skill.

Perk Stats[edit | edit source]

Each perk gives the crew member possessing it an increase in Stats. Each Perk within the same Skill gives the same bonus, and these bonuses stack with each other.
