Be safe or be dead

A ship is safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships are for.


Ahoy there!

This week is been a quiet one and, since I’ve also managed to survive my birthday party, I can say it was a good one. I hope you are enjoying your holidays or preparing for them.

In my previous post I’ve introduced you to the newspaper, concluding the presentation of all the buildings available in cities, so this week I’m going to complete the harbors discussion. In fact, cities are not the only harbors available in Nantucket and today we are going to present you the safe docks.


Safe docks are small harbors you can stop in during your travels in order to get vital resources for free. At the beginning of the game, there will be just two safe docks available: Galapagos and St. Helena, but you will be able to create as many safe docks as you want during the game. All you need is a good sailor with the right skill to find the right place to build it and some wood to build the actual dock.

Once created, you will be able to dock there when you want and get access to three different options (each one requiring specific skills from you or your crew to be available):

  • Hunt for food
  • Find water
  • Chop wood

The options are self explanatory and the success rate of each of them is strictly related to your crew attributes. As you can imagine, access these resources can make a difference between surviving and a terrible death at sea, especially if you are running out of money.

That’s it! Next time we are going to set sail and take a look to how you can manage your crew during your travels. Till then, keep following us on social media and have a nice week end.
