Actually, they're just wandering around South America, seeing what they can see and sharing their wisdom as they go. The Traveler is the new expansion for Altiplano coming from Renegade Game Studios and dlp Games. There's new locations, resources, and more, all in one box.
From the announcement:
Renegade Game Studios™ and dlp Games are excited to announce the first expansion to Altiplano — The Traveler! This expansion adds even more locations, resources, and strategy to an already excellent game.
Pre-order from your Friendly Local Game Store or online through the Renegade Store.
A traveler wanders through South American Highlands and brings the inhabitants new ideas from his travels. Anyone who meets him can take advantage of these assets. A public trading point makes it possible to obtain rare goods in exchange for opals. And a variety of fortunes adds even more diversity to life among the mountain ranges in Bolivia and Peru.
With this expansion to Altiplano, the planning of moves becomes more important and accessibility to resources becomes more interactive. Above all, the assets that may be purchased from the traveller open up completely new ways to increase one’s own wealth. But unforeseen fortunes sometimes demand spontaneous decisions which influence planning.
Thus, the strive for success in this inhospitable region turns into a completely new challenge! Who’s prepared for this?
