What are Crew Points?

CREW POINTS are the currency for action in Lost Tides. All of the captain’s actions require CREW POINTS, which are generated by the crew (either via real-world steps for player-controlled crew, or auto-generated for computer-controlled crew). CREW POINTS can be used in several ways:

At each ENCOUNTER, the captain is given an easy path and a hard path that he or she may choose. At each path the captain may choose to spend more CREW POINTS to increase the chance of success for the given path.

Ship Repairs
The captain may repair the ship while at sea using CREW POINTS. If the ship has any damage when a given chapter ends, the repairs are made automatically and taken out of the ship’s GOLD stores.
