If you want to get your fleet enchanted, just ask around for the hakima, they are most likely the people with the staves or sticks. They are the magicians of the brass coast and are all about casting rituals. They also are also held in quite high esteem and they will know a bit about what is going on generally within the brass coast.
Family is very important. If you can get a family quickly, it will give you a base of operations and it will mean that you don’t keep dumping money out to do anything in the brass coast. Family are the only people who will not charge you for their service in the brass coast (though some may forget to do charge you if they are having a good enough time).
Money in the brass coast is like ice cream on a hot day, everyone wants it but if you aren’t careful, it will all just pour away and all you can do is just keep replacing it. Money is very important, coins have special meaning and the value you attribute to something is also important. When I’ve gone to ask to sit down at the brass coast camp I’ve been lucky. They have wanted me there so they only charged me a ring. If they were busy, it would be a crown and if they wanted to insult me it would be a throne.
Try and find glass, dust or flame, the egregores of the brass coast. They should help you quite a bit. Glass, dust and flame (not the egregores the actual physical thing) are also symbols of the brass coast and important to them.
At the end of the year, the brass coast have something called the broken wheel where they can go against all their principles and act unvirtuous (within reason) for the night. There is a lot of lying and tomfoolery. That is there big event. Unfortunately you missed it.
@domsnake is planning on making flyers with information on. Maybe look into buying one, I’m sure it will help you both out.
I feel like there are small rivalries almost between certain nations. Everyone tells me this isn’t true but I believe there is some between high guard and the brass coast, partly because the founders of the brass coast set out from high guard a long time ago because they didn’t think there was enough freedom. That is the people of both nations are called ‘____’ born.
Fun facts: the brass coast election is done through biding.
Black is the colour of death, white is the colour of poverty. High guard like their black and the dead are very important to them so this may be where this colour thing comes from.
If you can are good at writing, you can make money by creating fancy contracts as contracts are an important thing in the brass coast. If someone goes back on a contract with you and you have a family, it is likely that family will come and make sure that the contract is fulfilled if you aren’t able to get the person to do it.
You will find that music is fairly big in the brass coast and alcohol fairly easy to come by cheaply. This means you shouldn’t miss this kind of stuff too much from leaving the navarr area.
I hope this helps. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.
