Voyages are thematic collections of Quests that players can choose to embark upon. Voyages can be purchased from Trading Companies at all Outposts. To begin a Voyage, players must put purchased Voyages up for a vote on the ship's Captain's Table. Each Company provides different types of Voyages of varying difficulties.



In order to begin a Voyage, a crew member must interact with the ship's Captain's Table to select the Voyage they wish to go on. If the crew has only one player, the Voyage will begin immediately. If not, the Voyage has to receive a majority vote to begin. Once voted for, the Voyage will become active, indicated with a title card for the Voyage.

Crews can vote to cancel any active Voyage by voting at the Captain's Table.


A single Voyage is usually composed of a variable number of quests and chapters. The difficulty, number of objectives and the overall length of Voyages purchased from the Gold Hoarders, Order of Souls and Merchant Alliance increases with the player's purchased promotions with the respective companies.

Each Trading Company Voyage consists of unique quest types, varying from classic treasure maps to engaging combat or cargo shipping, as well as many more.

A multi-chapter Voyage is indicated by "Chapter One" appearing on the title card of the activated Voyage. These Voyages present quests in chapters, with following chapters appearing only when all the quests of the previous chapter are completed. The completion of a chapter is always indicated with another title card, with the last chapter always being introduced as the "Final Chapter". Once a Voyage is complete, a final title card will be presented to indicate its completion.
