This time around we take a closer look at Erik and Mia's treasure-hunting gang, as well as the base where they prepare for their forays into Draconia.
No Gang Is Complete Without A Base!
With the threat of rival treasure-hunting crews looming large, Erik and Mia form a gang of their own and even manage to snag a base of operations. Every piece of loot they acquire adds to the total value of their treasure vault. When this value hits a certain point, their gang will go up a rank, unlocking new treasure-hunting abilities and the option to add to the base's amenities. The best way to build a bigger and better gang is to collect as much treasure as possible!
Now that their flag is raised, it's official— Erik and Mia's gang has its own base!
As the base grows and their skills improve, Erik and Mia will soon be swimming in treasure!
Wanna Join My Gang?
The gang's membership is made up of the monster inhabitants of Draconia. As you explore the different islands, you'll encounter many monsters that wish to join your ranks. Take the treasure you find together back to base, where it will be appraised and added to the vault. As the total value of the treasure in your vault goes up, so will your gang's rank, bringing with it a great range of benefits for a budding explorer.
The name of your gang is entirely up to you! Once you've settled on a great name, it's time to choose the perfect flag for your gang. More flags can be unlocked by defeating rival gangs or exploring the farflung reaches of Draconia
As Erik and Mia explore Draconia, they come across an unusual island that was once home to the HQ of the Trans-Draconic Railway Company. One of its loyal employees, Mr Euston, agrees to let them use the island as their base. From there, Erik and Mia plan for their adventures, organising the monsters in their party and even sending teams of monsters on missions to bring back loot. The old storeroom is the perfect place for the siblings to display their favourite treasures. The base can be expanded with more facilities, turning it into a central hub for treasure hunting!
Building A Better Base
Facility 1: Treasure Vault
All the treasure Erik and Mia collect is stored in the vault. They can use the plinths there to display their favourite pieces for all the world to see.
Facility 2: Worker Dormitory
Mr Muddimer is one of the few remaining railway employees and head of staff. Speak to him outside the dorms when you want to change your party or arrange a dispatch mission. Mr Muddimer will help you rearrange your party and assist when it's time to let go of monsters that aren't fulfilling their potential. When your gang rank is high enough, you'll earn the ability to send teams of monsters out on dispatch missions to all corners of Draconia.
Facility 3: Personnel Department
Miss Cecily is head of the railway company's personnel department. She handles the application process for monsters looking to join the gang. Once your gang's rank is high enough, she can also help set up additional facilities, like a shop, cafeteria, and pellet workshop.
Facility 4: Item Shop
Bricky Rix is a merchant who sells food recipes and pellet formulae—as well as the materials for crafting them. As the story progresses, he'll begin to add new products to his line-up.
Facility 5: Cafeteria
Madame Blancmange is Draconia's premiere chef. From her cafeteria kitchen she creates mouth-watering meals to power up your monsters. She can also whip up rare delicacies...provided you give her the recipes!
Facility 6: Pellet Workshop
A former railway company mechanic and train builder, Axel uses his mechanic's knowhow to make catapult pellets for Erik and Mia. He stocks a range of pellets, and if you provide him with the formula, he can whip up some extra special projectiles for you.
Draconia is an ancient land with many mysteries, and Erik and Mia's base is no exception. A maze of rooms extends deep below the ground, joined by a series of interconnected teleportals. Stranger still, the maze changes every time someone enters, with different enemies to fight and new rewards up for grabs. Only the bravest treasure hunters dare to plumb its deepest, darkest depths and discover its secrets!
