Moose face

To hire crew, talk with the moose in the Tavern.

Crew are various NPC's within the game that provide different benefits when you hire them. They can be hired at any skyland's tavern from the moose bartender, and cost 50000Ģ. Different crafts have different crew capacities, and Tier 0 planes cannot carry crew.

Traders Edit

Navigators Edit

Hiring navigator

Hiring a Navigator in the Tavern.

Navigators can plot courses that either keep you out of trouble or throw you headfirst into it. While their risky/safe flights may initially take longer than a regular flight, they'll get faster as they level up. The maximum number of effective navigators you can have is 1. Navigators level up with flight points.

Upkeep, Experience, and Morale Edit

Crew card

A sample "Crew Card".

Crew members will only do their jobs properly if they're kept happy. All crew have an initial salary of 250Ģ per day. Daily wages increase with crew members' skill level (see below). Crew members will not take split bounty/profit payment if they're fully satisfied (aka 'King-Slime Happy'[1] as in the "sample Crew Card" here), but they will always take wage payments (if you have less than 10000Ģ, they'll not accept wage payments; leaving you a small buffer to ensure you don't get into a tight spot[2]).

Typically, as long as they get paid and do not become injured in combat (they heal on their own if so), they'll stay King-Slime Happy and continue to help you. Having a high Leadership skill will help keep crew happy, if they otherwise aren't, even after being paid. Crew Levels are currently "capped" at 10.[3]

Distribution of Crew Types Edit

The chance of finding each crew type varies depending on the skyland, with capitals tending to be the most specialized. Arcadia averages 1.2 Diplomats per visit, Eltsina 1.4 Traders per visit, Fuseli 1.1 Mechanics per visit, Islo 0.95 Navigators per visit, and Lhasa 0.88 Diplomats per visit.

Mechanics can be most frequently found on Fuseli, Midgard, Isla di Pisa, and Jordan. Traders can be found most frequently on Eltsina, Luz, Steppe, and Sharif. Diplomats can be found most frequently on Tinkspoit, Arcadia, Lhasa, and Alpha 13. Navigators are especially difficult to find, with 14 skylands having never been seen to offer a Navigator, but they can be found most frequently on Islo, Alpha 11, Alpha 10, and Valvia.

The following chart is an initial look at the prevalence of crew types on various skylands. The percentages are the odds that a particular type of crew will be present upon a single visit. Since up to two crew members are available at each landing, the theoretical maximum value is 200%, while a random distribution would give an average of 50%. The chart also shows the average number of crew members available upon each landing. Skylands with 20 landings' worth data reported are considered to have a "good" amount data, while those with less than 20 observations need "more" in order to be considered well-represented. Please consider aiding this effort by adding to the chart in the 2.5 Compendium whenever you're in the Tavern.

SpeciesEdit

Though the art is unquestionably superb, the species are not always entirely obvious. There are usually two to three color combinations for each of these types; the list below is just a sample of what each species looks like. Also note that possibly personalities are based on crew species, so it may not always be possible to get the exact crew species and personality you want.

CatsEdit
