A bounty is an amount of money awarded to enemy captains for the capture of the player. The higher this amount, the higher the chance that a player passing near a hostile city will attract a pirate-hunter ship.

Known influences Edit

While the exact influence of the bounty on the chance of a pirate-hunter is unknown, factors which influence it are easy to measure.

- Dividing the plunder halves the bounty amount

- An immigrant ship that arrives safely reduces the bounty by 1000 gold pieces (capturing it increases by the same amount).
