woke up late tonight - but i think ten hours of sleep were needed. could have been reading, though. stopped on the way to work at the ravi kabob - now i am stuffed! although since i was late as usual the swing shift was stuck here 15 minutes extra. at least i apologize when i do it. why can't my coworkers get here on time?

for those of you who do puzzle pirates, i have a few questions: how do you get your money to the right island at the right time when you want to buy something? also, they should consider letting you pause this game. without a pause function it's pretty useless to me at work because if i abandon my duty, my standing goes down, and what is the standing for anyways? i just don't get it.

it's friday, i have five more hours til the weekend, yay. it'll be a busy one so i wanna get out of here and get started dangit!

To get money: Go to the bank on the island, and select transfer. Banks will often charge transfer fees. *wince* Or if you only bank at main islands, you can bop around to them on the ferry and withdraw your funds in person pretty quickly. Then go to the store you want to purchase things from.

I think you can pause a current duty by pressing escape. I think this is also how you can chat in the middle of a duty or battle.

Standing matters in that if you have higher standing, some crews will be more likely to take you on. Also, I think you have to have the "Narrow" standing in a bunch of catagories if you intend to be a captain of your own ship.

I'm still learning my way around it too, you might want to check out the faq in case I'm mistaken. :)

OHHH. You go to the DESTINATION bank. DUH!

Phew :)

I really just want to buy one outfit. Then I can retire!

Agreed. It's never a good idea to carry a lot of money on you, I always bank and just swallow the transfer fees. PS-> Don't be dumb like me and bury money on an island. It's very piratical, but not very practical.

And the esc=pause thing works like a champ.
