Campaign of the Month: September 2013
The Crew Size represents a typical crew complement assuming every member has an Air Sailing, Pilot Boat, or Sailing Rank of 1. It does not have to be the actual number of crew members, but rather serves as a base to determine the number of successful talent or skill tests required to propel the ship. Because many sailors have a higher rank, actual crew sizes are often smaller than the Crew Size Rating. Ships using slaves for propulsion still need a regular crew to perform maneuvers.
