    Notes:
    ~You need to actually read your game manual.  If you don't know how to build a
     corn farm, read your manuel because I'm not going to retype it here.

                                        Tips
    ********************************************************************************
    
    Here are some tips:
    
    ~The first thing I usually build is a Sea Rations Factory so I can my ships out
     there bringing me captives.
    
    ~The second thing I usually build is a second Sawmill, sometimes a third
     depending on how much building I'll be doing or how many ships I'll need.
     Keep moving your timber camps when they run out of trees, but don't bulldoze
     them until all of the wood has been hauled away.  You can just fire the workers
     by holding shift when you click on them and then x out their slot so they'll
     go to the new timber camp.
    
    ~Make sure your pirates have enough anarchy & defense and build accordingly.
     Try and build all pirate facilities (docks, entertainment & housing) close
     together so the pirates don't have to walk through the orderly captive areas.
     You can check the pirate overlay for anarchy and defense so you know where
     to build. (note: fear doesn't effect pirates, but order has a bad effect)
    
    ~If you don't have the gold or the captives to build the higher quality
     entertainment places your high level pirates need, then just raise the
     rank on a couple of your low quality dives until you get the gold to build.
    
    ~Make sure your captives have enough fear & order and build accordingly.
     Try and build all captive facilities (farms, chuck tents, bunkhouses, etc...)
     close together and away from the pirates.  You can check the captive overlay for
     fear and order so you know where to build. (note: defense does not effect
     captives, but anarchy has a bad effect)
    
    ~You can add decor along roads that have a lot of traffic, but no buildings to
     keep the anarchy, fear, defense or order can be maintained.
    
    ~Kidnap a priest and build a church to get your captives inline quick.  Religion
     calms them down & makes them resigned.
    
    ~Make sure your captives don't starve.  Have lots of corn farms & chuck tents.
    
    ~Try and place buildings that are dependent on other things close together.
     Your blastfurnace & blacksmithy should be close to your mine, but not too far
     away from your docks since the weapons will need to be hauled there and
     your brewery should be close to both the corn & the bars.
    
    ~When you are victorious you'll be awarded either a gold, silver
     or bronze medal.  The quicker you accomplish your objectives the better your
     chance of earning a gold medal.
    
    ~Sometimes pirates can work and earn wages at places like sawmill, banana farm,
     blast furnace, etc...  The wages are from 1-12 gold per month depending on the
     priority settings.
    
    ~If you build a graveyard before you start cruising, then you can raise any
     pirates who die from the dead.  They come back as skeletons.  Put them to work
     because they work hard, don't escape, and are best used in low fear or low order
     areas.
    
    ~Running low on pirates, just press-gang some of your captives.
    
    ~Make sure you don't build on top of the green areas when building farms or
     mines.  Build on the side of it so that the green area is available for
     farming or mining.
    
    ~Send your ships out in packs to avoid being sunk.  If they leave the dock
     together then they'll work together to bring back lots of plunder.  Also try
     and educate your crews to improve their skills.
    
    ~Don't ransom your wealthy captives right away.  The longer they stay on your
     island the more money you'll get for ransom.  It starts out at $100, but the
     longer they stay the higher the ransom.  Just build a hotel or an inn (which
     serves both wealthy captives & high level pirates).
    
    ~If you have a problem pirate, use the Assassinate edict and whack him before
     he can really become a threat.

    Beer for Buccaneers
    *******************
    Objective:  You have one year to build a Brewery & a Smuggler's Dive.
    
    Start out by building a Timber Camp next to the Sawmill.  This will get some
    captives working to provide more lumber.  Since you start out with a little bit
    of lumber you can build your Brewery right away.  Of course, you'll need to
    put a Construction Tent next to your Brewery so your captives can begin building.
    As soon your Sawmill has 8 lumber you can build your Smuggler's Dive.
    
    ***************
    Pirate Industry
    ***************
    Objective:  You have 18 months to build a Sea Ration Factory, Iron Mine, Blast
                Furnace, Blacksmithy, and a Dock.
    
    Start out by building a Timber Camp next to the Sawmill.  Next you'll want to
    get your Sea Ration Factory (10 lumber) built so they can begin turning corn
    into "seafood".
    
    Now you have a choice to make, build an Iron Mine (20 lumber) or a Dock (5
    lumber) you need them both, but if you build the Dock first then it gives your
    haulers a chance to start hauling rations and if you build the Iron Mine first
    it gives your miners a chance to get started mining ore.  The Dock needs to be
    built in the water with its ramp joining onto the road.  When you build the
    Iron Mine, look for the green spot that indicates an area rich in ore.  Don't
    build on the top of the green spot, build on the side of it.
    
    Build the Blast Furnace (20 lumber) next, between the Iron Mine and the Dock.
    Lastly build the Blacksmithy (15 lumber) between the Blast Furnace and the
    Dock.  Your haulers will be picking up the cutlasses from the Blacksmithy and
    taking them to the dock.  The shorter the distance the quicker your dock is
    supplied.
    
    ************************
    Raiders of the Caribbean
    ************************
    Objective:  You have 4 years to get your treasury to $3000 gold and to build a
                Boatyard.
    
    Start out by building your timber camp and maybe even a second Sawmill.  You
    already have the Iron Mine, Sea Ration Factory & Blacksmithy to outfit the
    schooner so the next thing to build is the Boatyard.  Boatyards can only be
    built on the beach and they need a road.
    
    Once your Boatyard is built you can concentrate on getting $3000 gold.  You'll
    probably need to press gang some of your captives to make a pirate crew.  Now
    start Cruising.  If for some reason your ship sinks, build another one.  You can
    ransom any wealthy captives that you kidnap, the longer they stay on your island
    the more you can ransom them for.  The ransom starts at $100.
    
    You will also want to build places to entertain your pirates.  Build lots of
    Wench & Masseuse houses (2 lumber) at least 4 or 5, a Smuggler's Dive and an
    Animal Pit for gambling.  I put all of my settings on gouge em to get $$$
    quicker.  You'll need captives to work so you may have to raid instead of
    cruise to build up your workforce.
    
    ***********************
    Privateers, Not Pirates
    ***********************
    Objectives:  Build a Sloop, a Gambling Den and a Smuggler's Dive and get
                 Pirate happiness over the halfway point.
    
    Ok, by now you should know that you'll need lumber.  This is the last time I'll
    mention building a Timber Camp & maybe an extra Sawmill (if you don't know this
    by now then you haven't been playing the game).  Since the need 50 lumber to
    build the sloop you'll want the extra Sawmill this time.
    
    First kidnap a Shipwright.  Once you have the Shipwright you can begin building
    the Boatyard, you'll also need another Dock for the Sloop.
    
    Since money really isn't the object you don't NEED to cruise this time.  You'll
    need to build the Smuggler's Dive & Gambling Den, but your pirates will want
    Wench & Masseuse houses to make them happy.
    
    You can also issue the Pirate Festival edict for $1000 to throw a party for your
    pirates and make them happy.
    
    ************
    Jamaican Rum
    ************
    Objectives:  Build a Skull Cave and hoard at least $1000 gold in 8 years (you
                 will have to play through all 8 years even if you reach the $1000
                 gold goal early, but your hoard amount carries over to the next
                 campaign so try and earn as much as you can).
    
    First build your Sea Rations Factory, Iron Mine, Blast Furnace, and Blacksmithy
    so you can start cruising.  Once your ready to sail for bounty then build your
    Skull Cave and set it to stash maximum.  You may want to build a Boatyard in
    case your ship sinks or build another dock so you can have to ships out there
    stealing treasure.
    
    Build lots of entertainment for your pirates.  I started out setting stuff at
    "gouge em" but my pirates got pretty mad so I decided to set some at the middle
    rates.  When you get to the end of your 8 years you can also change your cruise
    settings to miserly so you get more of the treasure.  Also when you ransom the
    wealthy captives, you get to keep ALL of the ransom, it's not split with your
    pirates.
    
    *****************
    Diplomacy and War
    *****************
    Objectives:  By April 1669 build up your hoard to $1500 gold and achieve loyalty
                 to France or Spain by using the Prohibit Victims edict and the
                 Declare Peace edict.  You can also release captives from the nation
                 you choose to be loyal to, but I wouldn't do this until LATE in the
                 game.
    
    I declared loyalty to France since I needed to raid the Spanish settlement for
    captives.  Start right out declaring your loyalty to either Spain or France.  If
    you have lots of gold in your treasury (at least $3000-$4000) then you can spy
    on the English trade routes for $1500 gold.  Build your island up like usual and
    make sure you're prepared to build another ship with a Boatyard in case one
    sinks.  As long as you remember to release the captives from your "loyal" nation
    before April 1669 you should have no problem with this campaign.
    
    *****************
    A Turncoat Pirate
    *****************
    Objectives:  Build two pirate schools, an interrogation chamber and have at
                 least 4 ships by the time Henry Morgan arrives (which you'll find
                 out the date by interrogating English prisoners).
    
    Start out by raiding settlements because you'll want lots of captives and also
    building up your island.  Once you've got the Sea Rations & Weapons you can
    start cruising - make sure to set your Skull Cave settings, I like mine at
    maximum because your hoard carries over to your next campaign treasury.
    
    I would build the Interrogation Chamber before the Pirate Schools.  The campaign
    will end as soon as you have everything built that you need.  If you know when
    Henry Morgan will arrive you can wait to build your last school so that you'll
    earn more hoard money.  Also keep your ships in port during the last few months,
    it's not fun to lose one just before Henry Morgan arrives with no time to build
    a replacement ship.
    
    *************************
    Frigates and Shipbuilding
    *************************
    Objectives:  By 1682 build a Shipyard, build 2 Frigates, get your hoard to 2000
                 gold.
    
    Start out the same as usual.  You'll want to kidnap a shipwright, maybe even
    two.  Hopefully you've got a big treasury to start with from your last hoard.
    Get at least two Sawmills going as soon as possible since each Frigate takes
    125 lumber on top of the $1000 gold and you may even want a skilled lumberjack
    to get more lumber quicker.
    
    I don't know whether you want to risk your Frigate on cruising.  It will bring
    you lots of gold, but if it sinks, it will cost you BIG TIME.  You want your
    hoard to be as big as possible since it will carry over to your next treasury
    so I'd wait to build the last Frigate until the end of 1680, or the very
    beginning of 1681 - but if you wait this long make sure you have 3 shipwrights.
    
    *****************
    A Smuggler's Cove
    *****************
    Objectives:  By the end of 1689 build a Cigar Factory, Rum Distillery, Bakery,
                 Brewery, and a Smuggler's Cove and get your hoard to 5000 gold.
    
    You are allied with France in this campaign which means not only will France
    give you lots of captives but you'll also get a one time gift of $5000 gold.
    Make sure you're Pirate Cave is set to maximum stash before you accept the
    gift to ensure a quick $1250 goes right into your hoard.  After setting up your
    Pirate Cave settings, issue the Emergency Funding edict under International
    Diplomacy and petition France for money.
    
    I would also build a Smuggler's Cove as soon as possible too.  Open it to France
    and let the gold roll in.  After that it's pretty easy.  As soon as all the
    objectives are met the campaign ends so I would wait and build up your hoard.
    You'll want your Rum & Grog, but maybe hold off on building the Bakery.  Either
    that or the Cigar Factory, it really doesn't make that much difference which one
    so long as you can keep hoarding the gold until the last possible moment.
    
    *******
    Tortuga
    *******
    Objectives:  By the end of 1697 get your hoard to 10,000 gold and your treasury
                 to 20,000 gold.
    
    I hope you hoarded lots of extras from the last campaign.  This campaign is a
    GIANT headache.  Again, build your Smuggler's Cove as soon as possible and open
    it up to France.  You can get the $5000 emergency money again, make sure you're
    stashing the maximum when you do it.  Your island is big so you can set up a
    couple of mines to supply your ships with weapons.  Make sure you have lots of
    lumber for building stuff - you'll need to in order to keep your pirates happy.
    
    The biggest problem is your pirates.  They start out easy to please and become
    a big pain in the butt.  Be prepared to pause often as you try and figure out
    exactly what they need now.
    
    Build more ships and send them out in packs.  They'll work together and sort
    of protect one another.  Set your biggest crew to Board Em and your other ship
    to Pound Em then while they're being bombarded with cannons your other ship can
    take them out with their swords.  Just don't stay too long in one area or you'll
    lose your ships anyway.
    
    There really is no tried and true way with this campaign.  You need to watch
    your pirate's happiness, make sure you have enough entertainment, and keep the
    resources growing and there always seems to be a problem somewhere.
    
    ******************
    The Treasure Fleet
    ******************
    Objectives:  Get your hoard to 10,000 gold by the end of 1700.
    
    Sounds easy after the last one right?  Well it's a little easier.  You don't
    have to worry about your treasury so you can set your Pirate Cave to stash
    maximum.  A Smuggler's Cove will help you a little, but you're going to have to
    cruise.  And in this level you need to focus on winning your sea battles.  Send
    your ships out in packs, train your crews so the ones who'll Board Em are good
    at Swordsmanship and the ones who'll Pound Em are good at Gunnery and the ones
    who'll Harass Em are good at Marksmanship.  Make sure that your ships all depart
    at the same time so they can cruise together.  A single ship will probably be
    lost, so even if all your crew isn't on board, hit the sail button and get them
    out at the same time.
    
    ***************
    The Jolly Roger
    ***************
    Objectives:  By the end of 1707 recruit 50 pirates, have 5000 gold in your hoard
                 and get your pirate happiness above the 2/3 mark.
    
    Well this one isn't too bad.  You shouldn't cruise as much because you want your
    pirates on the island enjoying themselves, not out cruising.  But they will need
    some money to spend.  Make sure that all of your pirate levels have the right
    entertainment.  You can also spend money on Pirate Festival editcs to boost
    their happiness.
    
    *********
    A New War
    *********
    Objectives:  By the end of 1716 get friendly with either France, England, or
                 Spain, have at least 4 Frigates or Galleons and get your hoard to
                 at least 5000 gold.
    
    You won't want England as your patron because they have too many merchant ships
    to attack.  Check your Strategic Map and see which one has the settlement
    because you definately don't want to cozy up with them, you're going to need
    the captives.  Issue your Prohibit Victims & Declare Peace edicts right away.
    
    There are two islands.  I used my smaller one for mostly farming.  Make sure
    you have plenty of scary & orderly stuff to keep your captives in line.  There
    are two places on the bigger island for mining, you might want to get them both
    running.
    
    You'll want to get started on building the Frigates or Galleons right away too,
    and you may want more than one shipwright.  You'll definately need lots of
    lumber so keep an eye on that situation.
    
    **************
    Pirate Defense
    **************
    Objectives:  In 10 years get your hoard to 10000 gold and get your island set up
                 with the maximum possible defense.
    
    Well you can either court the Spanish or fortify your island.  Since I'm sick of
    kissing up to Spain, I went with defending the island.  Besides that leaves you
    free to attack Spanish ships or settlements to build up your hoard.
    
    Build up your island like normal only make sure you place several forts and
    maybe an observatory or two for the defense, some protective cannons too.
    Now work on getting your 10000 gold.
    
    *******************
    The Last Golden Age
    *******************
    Objectives:  By 1729 have 6 Pirate Ships, 6 Captains and keep them happy.
    
    Since recruiting captains costs $5000 gold each I'll tell you right now you're
    going to need lots of gold.  Get started building your ships right away, but
    build small ships - don't waste your gold on building big ones because if they
    sink you're going to be out a lot of gold.  Make sure you keep your captains
    happy too.
    
    ***********************
    The War of Jenkins' Ear
    ***********************
    Objectives:  In 10 years get your hoard to 7500 gold.
    
    Get your Smuggler's Cove set up & some big ships built.  Since the English Navy
    is ready to pounce on you, don't send out single ships because they won't make
    it back.  Send out your ships in packs for the best chances.  Get some schools
    set up so you can have your crews trained for Board Em, Harass Em, etc...

    Objectives:  Stay in power for 20 years.  Your hoard size determines your medal.
    
    Set your hoard to maximum stash and then go to town.  Just try and keep everyone
    happy.
    
    ******************
    Home Isle Security
    ******************
    Objectives:  You have 10 years to prepare for a Spanish Invasion.
    
    Forts, forts and more forts.  Plus try and boost your pirate ranks.  Also if you
    issue the Spanish peace edicts it will weaken them a little bit.
    
    ****************
    Peace or Plunder
    ****************
    Objectives:  Build a shipyard in 6 years.
    
    You need 800 gold and 30 lumber.  Your choice, you can either plunder by cruising
    for your gold or build a Smuggler's Cove and try earning your gold.  It's fun to
    do either way.
    
    *************
    The Anarchist
    *************
    Objectives:  You have 15 years to get at least 150 captives and keep them happy
                 (if not happy, then at least resigned).
    
    Make sure your captives have plenty of corn farms, chuck tents, bunkhouses and
    don't forget the priest & church.
    
    **************
    Local Troubles
    **************
    Objectives:  You have 20 years to get 12000 gold in your hoard.
    
    Build at least 2 big ships so they can cruise together, don't even think about
    sending them out alone or they won't come back.
    
    ****************
    The Happy Pirate
    ****************
    Objectives:  You need to get a 75% overall happiness for 30 pirates in 10 years.
    
    Try and keep the number of pirates at just over 30.  More pirates means more
    problems.  Make sure they have beer, rum and cigars, maybe even pastries.
    Build pirate houses & make sure they have enough defense & anarchy.  Lastly if
    you're nearing 75% with lots of money in your treasury then use the Pirate
    Festival Edict or Free Beer.  It's also helpful if you don't let your pirates
    move up in rank (the higher the rank the harder to please).  So be Selfish or
    Miserly and then donate money if they need it.
