The captains you recruit for your ships can have a large effect on the plunder you gain and the morale of your pirates. Be sure to click on the captain's name in the Recruit Captain edict menu to check the cyclopedia information before committing your hard-earned gold. Check their leadership, courage and notoriety ratings as well as skill ratings in the skills that are important to you.

Leadership adds to your pirates' courage to keep fighting in a battle and notoriety reduces the courage of the opposing ship's crew.

Courage affects whether your ship will flee or pursue when encountering another ship, so a captain with low courage may get low plunder.

The seamanship skill is another important one that affects how many ships you will encounter and how effective your ship will be at boarding another ship and escaping enemy ships that are obviously too powerful. However, this also depends on the seamanship of your crew, so the captain's rating may have minimal effect.

If you combine the leadership, courage and notoriety ratings, the best captains are Edward Teach, Henry Morgan and Laurens de Graff, with a total of 17.
