Port Phase

The Home of Pirates:

The crew has its base on an island and from there they
sail seeking adventure. For that each adventure will
indicate which island our goal is on.
Once the adventure is successfully accomplished, the
crew will go “Home”, sailing back the way they came
to their island of origin

What to do in the Pirate’s Island.

Back home, the Captain can decide to contract new crew
members, improve the ship, pay off debts, negociate
the price of a cargo stolen on some boarding....
Meanwhile, the pirates make the most to spend their
earnings on enjoying the pirate life, buying some piece
of gear with gold from their personal booty, acquire
new abilites...And all this is the Port Phase.

The booty:

There are two kinds of booty in Skull Tales, the
personal booty each pirate has looted and the crew’s
booty.
The personal booty is the one each player puts
together on his adventures by searching fallen enemies
for coins, exploring or fulfilling goals. To this amount
we must add the salary that the character perceives for
being part of the crew on the crossing home, which
will be indicated in the Character’s sheet.

The other characters and PS will receive their regular
salary indicated on their card or sheet, and the amount
must be paid out of the Crew’s Booty.

Shipyard:

A ship needs patching up and improving to be able to
govern the seas. This is the place to go for such needs.
Check the following table to see the costs and possible
improvements that you can add to your ship as captain.

The Tavern:

This is the ideal place to hire folk. Here the Captain
can choose new members for the crew, paying their
hiring fee, which is the salary indicated on their card.
This is also the place where you’ll have to pay your
crew’s salaries of your crew when your return from
each adventure.

Kinds of ships:

The Crew’s Booty is the one the Captain gets during
the Voyage phase in the form of goods looted during
boarding, plus whatever plunder we’re rewarded with
for fulfilling the Captain’s goals on each adventure.

Each Pirate Squad has a salary of 30 coins. If you
want to add a Pirate Squad to your crew, you’ll have to
pay 30 coins for them. Remember that the maximum
number of PSs on a ship is 6.

Merchants:

Several merchants have settled on the island and
they like to trade with pirates and their goods, much
cheaper than from any other supplier. Check on the
Merchant’s table the total worth of the goods you’ve
amassed on your crossings. Write down the amount
on the Captain’s log sheet, under the BOOTY section.
With this money you must pay the crew, you can hire
new hands and improve the ship.
This is also the place to buy Rum and Supplies for the
next crossing. Don’t forget to get your numbers right
and get hold of what you need before going back to sea
as Captain.

Madame Claudie’s Mansion:
