    Jaakali: suit of leather armor, three heavy maces, 12sp, in some old crates and a masterwork handaxe

    Gaining new gear

    So now everyone may get back their starting gear with a Diplomacy check DC 0 and a ship action to Shop, normally day only but now Grok will let the PCs into the quartermasters area after she locks up.

    You may also try the following actions with the quartermaster which also require the Shop ship action:
    - loan of goods worth up to 150gp DC 11
    - loan of equipment up to 300gp DC 21

    Nightstorm gains 100gp

    Infamy and Disrepute


    Infamy Score: 1
    Maximum Infamy allowed: 4
    Disrepute: 0

    Some pirates only do what they do for the promise of wealth, being little more than brigands of the waves. Others do it for the reputation, fearsomeness, and power that comes with numbering among the most notorious scallywags on the seas. That’s where Infamy comes in. Numerous times over the course of their careers, the PCs—as members of a single pirate crew—will have the opportunity to recount their victories, boast of the treasures they’ve won, and spread tales of their outrages. All of this has the potential to win the PCs Infamy, but that alone isn’t the goal. At the most basic level, infamous pirates have the potential to press gang unfortunates into their crews, get repairs to their ships in nearly any port, and win discounts from merchants they’d prefer not to rob. As a crew becomes more and more infamous, however, its legend stretches across the seas,allowing it to garner support from other pirate lords, win more favorable vessels, and even rally whole pirate armadas under its flag. This system allows characters to track how their legend is growing over the course of the campaign, along with providing them tangible rewards for building appropriately piratical reputations.

    Infamy and Disrepute Scores

    In a method similar to the tracking system for Fame and Prestige Points detailed in Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Pathfinder Society Field Guide, a party has two related scores, Infamy and Disrepute. Infamy tracks how many points of Infamy the crew has gained over its career—think of this as the sum of all the outlandish stories and rumors about the PCs being told throughout the Shackles. Infamy rarely, if ever, decreases, and reaching certain Infamy thresholds provides useful benefits and allows others to be purchased using points of Disrepute. Infamy is limited by actual skill, however, and a group’s Infamy score can never be more than 4 the PCs’ average party level.

    Disrepute is a spendable resource—a group’s actual ability to cash in on its reputation. This currency is used to purchase impositions, deeds others might not want to do for the group, but that they perform either to curry the group’s favor or to avoid its disfavor. This score will likely fluctuate over the course of a pirate crew’s career and can go as high as the group’s Infamy (but never higher), and at times might even drop to zero. This isn’t something to worry about, though, as a low Disrepute score has no bearing on a crew’s overall reputation—on the contrary, it merely means they’re making use of the benefits their status has won them. However, it does represent that even the PCs’ legend can only take them so far, and if a group’s Disrepute drops lower than the Disrepute price of a benefit, the crew must spend time building its Disrepute back up before it can purchase that benefit.


    Winning Infamy and Disrepute

    A few things are required to gain Infamy: an audience, a deed to tell about, and a flair for storytelling. Proof of the group’s deed in the form of plunder doesn’t hurt either. To gain Infamy, the PCs must moor their ship at a port for 1 full day, and the PC determined by the group to be its main storyteller must spend this time on shore carousing and boasting of infamous deeds. This PC must make either a Bluff, Intimidate, or Perform check to gauge the effectiveness of her recounting or embellishing. The DC of this check is equal to 15 + twice the group’s average party level (APL), and the check is referred to as an Infamy check. If the character succeeds at this check, the group’s Infamy and Disrepute both increase by +1 (so long as neither score is already at its maximum amount). If the result exceeds the DC by +5, the group’s Infamy and Disrepute increase by +2; if the result exceeds the DC by +10, both scores increase by +3. The most a party’s Infamy and Disrepute scores can ever increase as a result of a single Infamy check is by 3 points. If the PC fails the Infamy check, there is no change in her group’s Infamy score and the day has been wasted. Occasionally, deeds of exceptional daring or depravity might win a party increases to its Disrepute. This sort of discretionary bonus to Disrepute is noted in the context of an adventure or determined by the GM.


    Infamy and Disrepute per Port

    No matter how impressionable (or drunk) the crowd, no one wants to hear the same tales and boasts over and over again. Thus, a group can only gain a maximum of 5 points of Infamy and Disrepute from any particular port. However, this amount resets every time a group reaches a new Infamy threshold. Thus, once a group gains 5 points of Infamy and Disrepute in Quent, it can gain no further points of Infamy from that port until it reaches the next Infamy threshold, though the crew can travel to another port and gain more Infamy by boasting to a new audience.


    Plunder and Infamy

    Plunder can modify a PC’s attempt to gain Infamy in two ways. Before making an Infamy check for the day, the party can choose to spend plunder to inf luence the result—any tale is more believable when it comes from someone throwing around her wealth and buying drinks for the listeners. Every point of plunder expended adds a +2 bonus to the character’s skill check to earn Infamy. The party can choose to spend as much plunder as it wants to influence this check—even the most leaden-tongued pirate might win fabulous renown by spending enough booty. Additionally, if a PC fails an Infamy check, the party can choose to spend 3 points of plunder to immediately reroll the check. The party may only make one reroll attempt per day, and spend the plunder even if the second attempt fails—some people just aren’t impressed no matter how much loot you throw at them.


    Spending Disrepute

    A group’s Disrepute can be spent to buy beneficial effects called impositions, though some impositions might only be available in certain places— such as at port—or might have additional costs—like forcing a prisoner to walk the plank. Spending Disrepute to purchase an imposition requires 1 full day unless otherwise noted. When Disrepute is spent, the group’s Disrepute score decreases by the price of the imposition, but its Infamy (and, thus, the group’s Infamy threshold) remains the same. The prices of impositions and the Infamy threshold required to make those impositions available are detailed below.


    Infamy Threshold

    The following benefits are available to groups that achieve the listed amount of Infamy.
    Code:
         Title & Infamy
    _____Required______Benefit_________________________________
          Disgraceful     Characters may purchase disgraceful impositions.
         (10+ Infamy)     The PCs may choose one favored port. They gain a +2 bonus 
                          on all Infamy checks made at that port.
    
          Despicable      Characters may purchase despicable impositions.
         (20+ Infamy)     Once per week, the PCs can sacrifice a prisoner or crew
                          member to immediately gain 1d3 points of Disrepute. This
                          sacrifice is always fatal, and returning the victim to 
                          life results in the loss of 1d6 points of Disrepute.
    
          Notorious       Characters may purchase notorious impositions.
         (30+ Infamy)     Disgraceful impositions can be purchased for half price
                          (rounded down).
                          The PCs may choose a second favored port. They gain a +2 
                          bonus on all Infamy checks made at this new favored port 
                          and a +4 bonus on Infamy checks made at their first 
                          favored port.
    
          Loathsome       Characters may purchase loathsome impositions.
         (40+ Infamy)     Despicable impositions can be purchased for half price 
                          (rounded down). 
                          PCs gain a +5 bonus on skill checks made to sell plunder.
     
          Vile            Characters may purchase vile impostions.
         (55+ Infamy)     Notorious impositions can be purchased for half price 
                          (rounded down). 
                          Disgraceful impositions are free.
                          The PCs may choose a third favored port. They gain a +2 
                          bonus on all Infamy checks made at the new favored port, 
                          a +4 bonus on Infamy checks made at their second favored 
                          port, and a +6 bonus on Infamy checks made at their first 
                          favored port.


    Impositions


    The following benefits can be purchased by groups that spend the listed amount of Disrepute and have achieved the requisite amount of Infamy. Over the course of the Skull & Shackles Adventure Path, characters might find other ways to spend their Disrepute. GMs are also encouraged to create their own impositions using the following as guidelines.

    Code:
       Cost     Imposition Benefit______________________________________
                Disgraceful Impositions
        2       Yes, Sir!: For the next hour, the PCs’ crew completes any mundane 
                tasks they’re assigned in half the expected time. This typically 
                relates to Craft and Profession (sailor) checks made to prepare, 
                maintain, or repair the ship, and cannot be applied to combat or 
                more complex deeds like crafting magic items.
    
        5       Captain’s Orders!: As a standard action, a PC on board her ship 
                can cast fog cloud, heroism, make whole, quench, or whispering 
                wind with a caster level equal to her character level.
    
        5       Walk the Plank!: The PCs may sacrifice one crew member or prisoner 
                to grant themselves and their crew one of two bonuses: either a +2 
                bonus on all skill checks or a +2 bonus on attack rolls. These 
                bonuses only apply while on board the PCs’ ship and last until 
                either the next day or when the captain leaves the ship. If a 
                sacrificed character is returned to life, the PCs and their crew 
                members take a –2 penalty on both skill checks and attack rolls for
                1 day.
    
        10      Get Up, You Dogs!: Every PC and allied character on the deck of the
                PCs’ ship is affected as per the spell cure light wounds, as if
                cast by a cleric of the PCs’ average party level. This imposition
                can only be used once per week.
    
    
                Despicable Impositions
        5       Lashings!: The speed of the PCs’ ship doubles for 1 day.
    
        5       Shiver Me Timbers!: While on board their ship, the PCs and their
                entire crew can reroll initiative or roll initiative in what would 
                otherwise be a surprise round. The benefit of this imposition can
                be used immediately, but only once per week.
    
        10      Besmara’s Blessings!: As a standard action, a PC on board her ship
                can cast animate rope, control water, remove curse, remove disease, 
                or water breathing with a caster level equal to her character level.
    
        10      Dead Men Tell No Tales!: While on board their ship, the PCs can use
                this imposition to automatically confirm a threatened critical hit.
    
                Notorious Impositions
        5       You’ll Take It!: The PCs can spend up to 5 points of plunder in 1
                day at 50% of its value (regardless of a community’s maximum sale
                %). This amount cannot be adjusted by skill checks.
    
        5       Honor the Code!: The PCs and their crew gain a +4 bonus on all 
                Charisma-based skill checks made against other pirates for the next
                24 hours.
     
        10      Master the Winds!: As a standard action, a PC on board her ship can
                cast call lightning storm, control winds, mirage arcana, or 
                telekinesis with a caster level equal to her character level.
    
        15      Chum the Waters!: For every Infamy threshold they possess, the PCs
                summon 1d4 sharks into the waters surrounding their ship. These
                sharks are not under the PCs’ control and viciously attack any
                creature in the water.
    
                Loathsome Impositions
        5       Evade!: Teleport your ship 100 feet in any direction. This
                imposition can be used once per day.
    
        10      You’ll Take It and Like It!: The PCs can spend up to 5 points of
                plunder in 1 day at 100% of its value (regardless of a community’s
                maximum sale %). This amount cannot be adjusted by skill checks.
    
        10      Master the Waves!: As a standard action, a PC on board her ship can
                cast control weather, discern location, hero’s feast, or waves of 
                exhaustion with a caster level equal to her character level.
    
        20      The Widow’s Scar!: Choose one enemy to curse. You and your crew gain
                a +2 bonus on attack and damage rolls against that NPC for 1 week. 
                The enemy is aware of the curse and who cursed her, and can end the 
                effect with a remove curse spell.
    
                Vile Impositions
        10      More Lashings!: The speed of the PCs’ ship quadruples for 1 day.
    
        15      The Hungry Sea!: A PC aboard her ship may cast elemental swarm,
                storm of vengeance, or whirlwind as an 17th-level caster.
    
        20      Dive! Dive! Dive!: The PCs’ ship submerges and can travel underwater
                at its normal speed for up to 1 hour. During this time, the vessel is
                encompassed by a bubble of breathable air and takes no ill effects
                from the water—even most sea creatures keep their distance. The ship
                leaves no visible wake upon the waters above, but might be visible in 
                particularly clear water.
    
        25      Summon the Serpent!: One sea serpent comes to the aid of the PCs’
                ship. This sea monster is under the control of the PCs and serves for
                10 minutes before disappearing back into the deep.

    Ship Actions

    In addition to their normal jobs on the ship, the PCs can also utilize their time during the day (and night) to explore the ship, scrounger for gear, interact with their shipmates, or attempt to influence NPCs.

    With the PCs potentially scattered across the ship working at their jobs, however, there is a danger that early events in the adventure might focus too much upon the actions of individual characters. Some PCs might have more time on their hands and act accordingly. To avoid this, the PCs’ activities aboard ship—carrying out their assigned tasks; exploring the ship; robbing, bullying, or befriending shipmates; working; or playing—are performed as part of ship actions. These actions reflect the time required to set up or complete an activity, such as gathering enough crew to play a game, scouting out a room to make sure it’s empty, and so on. Remember that even the cook’s mate has a job to do during the day, and ship actions are meant to reflect the available time a PC can carve out from his or her work time without going into too much detail.

    Each PC can normally take two ship actions each day, one during the day and one at night. A PC can also
    attempt to take up to two additional ship actions during the middle watch in the dead of night (any nighttime ship action marked with an asterisk), but to do so the PC must make a successful Constitution check (DC 10, +4 per extra ship action taken) or be fatigued for the next day.

    Daytime Ship Actions
    Work Diligently: Gain a +4 bonus on any one check for a job’s daily task

    Influence: Make normal checks for a job’s daily task and attempt to influence a single NPC

    Sneak: Make normal checks for a job’s daily task and briefly explore one area of the ship (the PC can make a single Perception check or other skill check with no chance of detection)

    Shop: Take a –2 penalty on all checks for a job’s daily task and visit the quartermaster’s store

    Shirk: Take a –2 penalty on all checks for a job’s daily task and take time exploring one area of the ship. The PC can take 10 on a single Perception check or other skill check, but must make a check to avoid being discovered

    Nighttime Ship Actions
    Sleep: Go to bed early and sleep through the night (automatically recover from fatigue)

    Gamble: Play or gamble on a game of chance or pirate entertainment

    Entertain: Make one Perform check to entertain the crew

    Influence*:
    Attempt to influence a single NPC

    Sneak*: Take time exploring one area of the ship. The PC can take 20 on a single Perception check or other skill check, but must make a check to avoid being discovered

    Steal*: Attempt to open a locked door or locker. The PC must make a check to avoid being discovered
