Bilge Rat Adventures are events hosted by the Bilge Rats in Sea of Thieves that arrive with Content Updates. All Bilge Rats Adventures have a number of Commendations tied to them under the Bilge Rats Reputation Menu.
Each of these Adventures usually introduce a new feature that is added to the game with Content Updates (Mechanic, Treasure, Enemy, etc), with new Commendations, Cosmetics and Titles related to these Events.

Following the November 2018 Shrouded Spoils update, Players were introduced to Mercenary Voyages that shifted the focus away from the established Adventure theme of past updates to Voyage-focused updates. As per Bilge Rat tradition, these Time-Limited Mercenary Voyages were accompanied by Time-Limited Cosmetics that could be bought by completing commendations and earning Doubloons.
The October 2019 Fort of the Damned (Event) provided both a permanent Bilge Rat Adventure with permanent Commendations and Cosmetics, as well as offering Time-Limited Mercenary Voyages and Mercenary Commendations.
The following November 2019 The Seabound Soul (Content Update) brought along new Bilge Rat Adventures called Ashen Treasures that saw new additions and implementations during the next following few updates.
The beginning of 2020 introduced the Legends of the Sea Update that saw Umbra's introduction to the Sea of Thieves, with a large number of Commendations devoted to finding Easter Eggs and Legendary Player Pirates.
In the February 2020 Crews of Rage Content Update, the Bilge Rats Adventures style was continued with the new Chest of Rage Treasure item introducing both Mercenary Voyages and Adventure related Commendations and rewards.
After the Crews of Rage, there was a longer break from Bilge Rat Adventures, with the next one coming at July 2020, introducing the Ashen Winds World Event and Commendations, related to defeating Ashen Lords and using their Ashen Winds Skull in various situations.
