Guide to Crew Members
You can recruit crew members either by speaking with them at the pub in the port they reside in, or recruit them directly from the Navigator menu in the bottom right of the screen.
Colored cards are already recruited by you. To recruit new crews scroll down and you’ll see crews you haven’t recruited in black and white. Just click on them to recruit, if you meet their requirement you can recruit them from this screen.
Below is a compiled list of crew members and their specializations.
