* AcceptableBreaksFromReality: Carpentry and Patching repair the ship's overall damage, while in a real-life scenario a carpenter would repair the ship's hull while a patcher would patch the sails.



* AntiFrustrationFeature: In the carpentry puzzle, you are allowed to adjust a piece if you had misplaced it slightly.

In the carpentry puzzle, you are allowed to adjust a piece if you had misplaced it slightly.slightly.
** Two of the three aspects of the ship that need to be maintained (Speed and Damage) have two puzzles you can do. For example, if the captain needs you at Sailing but you're bad at Sailing, you can try Rigging instead. Or if you keep cutting the sails in half during Patching, you can do some Carpentry to compensate. Bilge only has Bilging, but it's the simplest puzzle in the game (and the first one you have to learn).



* AlmightyJanitor: You can be an exceptionally skilled bilge rat who keeps the water levels very low even during a sea battle, and if that isn't enough, you can be an able swordfighter/brawler too!



** If you attempt to send a 'tell' to yourself, you will be informed that "talking to oneself is a sign of impeding insanity.
** If you involve any wager in a puzzle challenge with a teacher during a challenge mission, they will refuse for a good reason.

* TrainingDummy: Dummies can be ordered from a furnisher and named after any pirate. When placed in a scene, you can brawl against the dummy and it will copy whomever you named it after. Fighting dummies does not grant rewards or affect your puzzle standing, so it's only good for practice.

* WalkThePlank: Ship captains are able to hand out this punishment to crew members who are being particularly unpleasant. (In line with the game's no-death policy, they'll immediately wash ashore on the nearest island, but it means you don't have to put up with them for the rest of the trip and they miss out on collecting a share of the booty at the end of it.) A captain can even [[PressXToDie inflict this on himself]]. [[WhatAnIdiot Somehow.]]

** You can get an advantage in Drinking by buying a better cup from a distillery (you get a wooden cup by default, even if it isn't visible). Every cup but one lacks negative side-effects.

* BreakableWeapons: Clothing and weapons last for a set amount of days, ranging from a month to several. This can be avoided by putting the item into a wardrobe or rack when it is not in use.

* AmusingInjuries: When a ship sinks, everyone on it has a chance of getting either a peg-leg, an eyepatch, a HookHand, or a starfish stuck to their face. These can be removed using special potions, but they're frequently seen as badges of honor among the playerbase.
