Badges are bought in the palace shoppe of any island on a doubloon ocean for doubloons. These items provide the holder with the ability to hold a given rank, or lower, in a crew or the ability to take employment at a shoppe or stall to provide "offline" labor. A labor badge also enables the player to forage from an uncolonized island.

Badge ages

The font colors for the three badge ages.

Badges last a limited amount of time, after which new badges must be purchased. There are two distinctions in how this time is measured. Login days refer to days in which the pirate holding the badge is logged in. Calendar days refer to days on the calendar, regardless of how often the pirate holding the badge logs in. Unlike other items that decay, mousing over a badge will display exactly how many days are left on it (font color indicates new, good or old).

If a player already has badges, they cannot purchase any badges that would not give them new privileges. This does not apply to the Pirate badge, since it can be traded between players.

One may also buy wrapped versions of a badge. All wrapped badges can be traded/given away, do not age and do not grant any abilities while still wrapped. The player who unwraps a badge obtains the normal version of the corresponding badge. Badges cannot be unwrapped if the player already has a badge with the same functionality.

Decay begins from the day a badge is purchased, even if you have another of the same type. If you wish to buy badges in advance, buy wrapped versions instead as those do not age until unwrapped.

When a rank badge expires, the pirate who held the badge maintains their rank. However, any abilities that the rank has over that of the cabin person cannot be executed. For example, a captain who does not have a badge can no longer modify the crew articles, promote or demote crew members, expel crew members, or command a ship with officer level control.
