Pirating Optimization Report #1
What Not to Do

Initiate Cruise 1 at Tempest Cay, Drenchport – Ports of Call:
- Downpour
- Drowning Rock (Cruise interrupted for Festival)
- Ngozu (Southernmost Point of Cruise 1– strong antilocal laws – Retreat)
- Little Oppara (Looping back Northerly)
- Shenchu Bay
- Cho-Tzu
- Dahak’s Tooth (Dragon Priest Cultists – Retreat)
- Drowning Rock (Explore murajau-infested shipwreck off of North Coast – Retreat)
- Drenchport
- Downpour (Catoblepas Effluvia untenable – Retreat, Gigas Clams too big – Retreat)
- Ilizmagorti (Establish Favored Port)


Recommendations –
• 50% of targeted locations/raids aborted in Retreat – reduction in Retreat behaviors would increase probability of obtaining Plunder/Profit.
• Don’t stop for Festivals.
• Don’t drink poison water.
• Focus of Cruise was for Plunder and Crew acquisition – crew complement obtained, but no significant Plunder/Profit. Should consider that, without additional “booty,” will have no resources with which to compensate our new recruits.

Stop, Drop. Loot.
We made no money
