Add a way to negotiate or threaten deckhands that have more fame requirement than your current fame.
Since the previous version of this was too RNG based, i reworked it; the system now would work with your renown vs their requirement. The remaining renown left from subtracting your renown with their requirement would determine the price.
The price can be in a scale, such as every 10k renown is +100 galleons, or every 5k renown is +10 galleons, i dont have knowledge to set the price scale up, but you get the gist.
So like, if i have 70k fame and the deckhand has a requirement of 100k fame, i would need to pay up 30k renown worth of galleons (100k - 70k=30k)
If the scale is 100 per 10k renown, it would cost 300 to recruit the deckhand.
If your renown is too low compared to the deckhand’s requirement (e.g 10k renown, trying to recruit a 100k renown deckhand) they would straight up refuse your offer. It can be set on a scale, maybe requiring you to e.g have atleast 50% the renown required for the deckhand.
Failing the Negotiate/Bribery, you could lose galleons for both negative and positive renowns. If it doesn’t make sense while being a hero, you would instead lose fame for “trying to bribe” the deckhand.
If you wonder it wouldn’t make sense while in a villain path, it would, since it’s money. Don’t think these goobers aren’t corrupt.
Now for the feature looks, it would be an extra tab named Negotiate (if you have positive renown) or Bribe (if you have negative renown). It would trigger different dialogue:
“Huh, so you’re that captain, since you’re paying me like that, i’ll join you.”
“Oh, you’re a captain? Welp, by what you’ve paid, it’s worth joining you.”
“Oh. You’re a captain then? Sorry, you didn’t look like one. I’ll join you.”
- dialogues in this theme.
“Huh? No, im not that cheap.”
“No, you don’t look like all of that.”
“You? A captain? You must be lying.”
“I’ll refuse your offer, you don’t look worth joining.”
- dialogues next to this
“Huh. Now you convinced me, im in.”
“You want me so bad like that? Well, i don’t see a reason not to.”
“Now we’re talking equally. Where’s the boat?”
“Good job. I’ll join you.”
“What was that? Go away before i beat you to a pulp.”
“Did you really try to buy me? Get lost!”
“Hilarious! Im not that cheap, loser.”
“I said no! Now go away, before i kill you!”
