You work in the Exploration Division, which is tasked with gathering new artifacts (either via exploring new lands, following up on leads, mixing with locals, or meeting collectors abroad to purchase things from them.) Professor Marshall is the head of your division, an older man who used to travel widely in his youth. Now he is too old to continue his adventures, but he’s known as a wild card that’s happy to bend the rules if it’ll get him better results.

Once you are at a higher level, the Museum will offer additional incentive programs accordingly.
