Famous Explorers

From Curious Expedition 2 Wiki
“As I sipped my drink that evening, I was approached by Percy Fawcett, famous explorer and hunter of the Lost City of Z!”

Famous Explorers are real-world celebrities of the Victorian Era. One will be your main rival during the campaign, and others may randomly offer to join you for a single trek along the way.

Unlike Leaders and Companions, Famous Explorers:

  • do not take up any character slots in your party;
  • do not have a Loyalty attribute;
  • do not have Experience Levels and thus cannot be promoted;
  • have a base carrying Capacity of only 1;
  • have a unique drawback among their abilities;
  • have pre-set Equipment that cannot be changed in any way.

Note: Famous Explorer equipment has the same level as the current Campaign year (1 in 1886, 2 in 1887 etc.). Remember to take this equipment into account as it may alleviate an explorer's drawbacks (e.g. Isabella Bird is slower to start travel but has a Hiking Stick to reduce tile costs.)
