What’s the story here?

So your crew, representing The International Society, has been spotted. Hence landing quietly in an undisclosed location East from Borneo in Indonesia by the order of Emperor Guāngxù. Yet hot on their heels comes your arch rival, Matthieu Rivaleux. While making a clearly visible landing at the busy docks with his team of investigators. And since the locals were clamouring for autographs from Rivaleux. With his dazzling smile flashing for the crowd of dedicated fans.
So no sooner are the teams ashore, but a race begans to the Temple of Trance. While involving miraculous feats of physical prowess, underhanded trickery.

And what amazing discoveries can we expect in the archaeological dream, Indonesia?
