Ambitions.jpg

Basic Information[]

All ambitions give 100 renown (which boosts contract payout) and lift the mood of the entire company. Some offer other rewards. An ambition can be cancelled at any time but it comes at the cost of a morale hit for the company. Abandoned ambitions will not be available the next time an ambition is chosen, though subsequently can appear again.

After several ambitions have been completed, an option to select "No Ambition" will begin appearing. Selecting "No Ambition" means not getting to pick another ambition until a week (~7 days) has passed. Cancelling an ambition only results in waiting a day or two before getting to choose again.

Ambition unavailability is usually temporary. For example: if you have 3 helms with 230+ durability when choosing an ambition, the heavy armor ambition will never be an option, but if you sell one, you can once again receive the heavy armor ambition as a choice.
