A Governor rules a port, and gives the Player: information on his nation's various wars, promotions, introductions to his daughter and a Letter Of Marque.
The governor gives a summary of what happened since you last visited the faction, showing a list of enemy ships you sunk or captures, and reprimanding you for sinking ships beloning to their own faction.
While the first governor beloning to your initial faction will grant you a Letter Of Marque, they can also be sold for an appropriate price, or if you sufficiently pleased the faction.
- Governors may give information about the nearest enemy city.
- If you were defeated in battle, a governor may arrange a practice match with a fencing instructor.
