Companions

From Curious Expedition 2 Wiki
(Redirected from Companion)
“My heart pounded with anticipation of the fame and glory that lay before me. But first I would need to hire some assistance...”

Companions or Recruitable Characters will join your party in various ways, most commonly by recruiting them in Paris or in islander villages. Your party can have a maximum of 4 companions in addition to your Leader; any extra characters must be dismissed before moving. (Some special temporary companions are an exception to this.)

Note: In all the tables below, Health and Dice face colors are for start Level 1, and "Bonus X, +Y/promotion" means that "Bonus" starts at X at Level 1 and increases by Y for each additional level from 2 onward.

Tavern and Club Recruits[edit]

Tavern and Club Recruits can be recruited in the Paris hub in-between treks, or occasionaly found in other locations.

They can be obtained in:

(Note: the Salamander Prince can only be obtained in the Mole Village of the Act II story expedition.)

Humans[edit]

Human Islanders are found in Drylands, Jungle and Prehistoric maps. Some also appear as starting companions of certain Leaders.

Mole People[edit]

Mole People Islanders are found in Caverns maps. They are purchased as mercenaries from Mole Outposts, not Villages. Mole villages instead offer non-Mole characters (Characters from Paris, Islanders and Salamanders) for purchase.

Animal Recruits[edit]

Animal Recruits are non-humanoid trek members. They take up a character slot as normal but don't have a Loyalty Inline93.png attribute, and have a single special Equipment slot instead of Hand and Body slots. Unlike with humanoids, you can recruit several animals of the same class in your party.

Pack Animals[edit]

Pack Animals Inline53.png are often selected for their ability to be ridden and/or their increased carrying Capacity Inline02.png. They have a combined Beast/Pack Animal equipment slot. One pack animal per party can be Mounted Inline102.png by your Leader using a Saddle (generally occupying 1 Capacity) to reduce travel costs and activate the mount's second die.

They can be obtained in:

Beasts[edit]

Beasts Inline54.png are smaller animals that cannot be ridden or use larger equipment. They provide a second die without requiring anything to activate it, and also a bonus die for specified non-Combat challenges. However they have a Beast equipment slot only, and cannot equip Pack Animal-specific items such as Saddles (unless they are also Pack Animals, such as the Raptor).
