23.23 Voyages

Voyages, also known as "seafaring quests", are a series of eleven diverse adventures offered by Achaea's harbour dockworkers/harbourmasters and undertaken by a ship and her crew. Invariably these involve a grand journey on the high seas, venturing forth from island to island, harbour to harbour, coast to coast, in order to complete the objectives, hear the stories, and claim the vast rewards at the end.

These are not to be undertaken lightly! The seafaring life can be a long one, and only the simplest of voyages can be done in a quick jaunt, from a single harbour to a single harbour. Most are much more diverse and cerebral, involving several-leg journeys that aim to tell a varied and robust range of stories, in most cases unfolding as the voyage itself progresses.

You need:
    Your ship in the harbour.

End of Voyage
When a voyage is concluded, ALL members of the participating crew will be credited with completion and rewarded accordingly.

In addition to the standard rewards, most voyages award pieces from the SEAFARING talisman set. Pieces are awarded to the captain when the quest is finished, and these can of course be traded around as desired. The amount of pieces awarded varies; simple voyages will not yield pieces, others range from 1 piece per ship up to 2 pieces for every member of the crew. 

There is also a small chance that each member of the voyaging crew will be awarded a talisman piece of their own.
