Quests are bonus activities primarily offered to the player immediately before sailing from London. Only one quest is proposed prior to each expedition. The player can choose to reject the quest with no negative effect. After Expedition 5, the player is offered a treasure map in place of a quest at the cost of 20 Funds.
Possible results for most standard quests:
- Revealed locations on the map and awarded Exploration Points for "discovering" them.
- Completion reward at London in the randomized amount of 80, 100 or 120 Funds.
- Penalty of -50 Fame for failing a quest upon return to London.
