Summary[edit | edit source]
The Black Market is where the Bilge Rats peddle their wares, services and Voyages for Bilge Rat Doubloons and Gold. Since Doubloons are rewarded for overcoming special feats for the Bilge Rats, the Black Market is the main place where they can be used as a Currency. In the Market, Players can buy Mercenary Voyages for Bilge Rat Doubloons or Gold that take them on unique Bilge Rat Adventures or simply offer access to hidden Stashes with useful Treasure items for a fee. Players can also exchange their hard earned Doubloons for Letters of Recommendation for some of the Trading Companies. These Letters are written by Duke and have the power to convince a single Trading Company of raising a Pirate's Reputation Rank by one. Duke is also willing to exchange Doubloons for Gold. Aside from these services, the Black Market also offers unique Cosmetic Sets for high prices. These Sets are discounted during the month that they are introduced. As new stock arrives, the old stock moves into the Black Market Archive at a raised price.
