Just so people are aware, while an enthusiastic attempt, the above to linked posts by CaptainColby are riddled with incorrect information and are not particularly easy to read. Though I commend Colby's desire to help, I would recommend using the YPPedia instead.

Seconded. You will find the YPPedia most helpful of all the resources that the player-base and the company that develops Puzzle Pirates provides, being in itself a joint project between between the two.

To use it, click the following link.

No you will not lose an account or pirate. Blockades can be sinking or non-sinking. In non-sinking a ship can go down, but notting is lost. In asinking blockade, when a ship goes down, the ship is lost. And your pirate has a small chance to get an injury (eyepatch, hook or pegleg). An injury is the only thing that can happen to your pirate, and most people want those injuries. You can never lose your account, ever. Though you sort of lose it if you get yourself banned from the game. But that is the only way. You could lose your pirate if you never paid real money and didn't play for some time, but notting you can do while playing can lose you your pirate.

Where does it not show up? Is it in your booty? Are you trying to equip it in an area where pets do not show? Like outside? Try equiping it while you are in your home. Pets will not show up in certain areas, like outside, and building and vessel owners can also disallow pets to show. On top of that scenes have a maximum number of pets that can show up.

I'm new and have a question.

The pirate guy that pops up to give you tips... how do you make him go away? He's constantly telling me I've left missions (when I'm pretty sure I haven't) and just clutters up the screen.

So, yeah how do I get rid of him?

They don't do anything. It's something you can collect, if you want. You can display them in a trinket case, so other's can see them too. But they don't have an actual use. So it really depends whether your interested in collecting things. You can also try selling them for poe, in the bazaar sections here on the forums, as there are always people wanting them. Some are uncommon and can be worth quite a lot, some are really common and not worth much of anything. For more details see here; http://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/Trinket

You can only use your dog in certain locations. For example, you can not use your dog on an island or in an inn but you are able to in your house or on a vessel (as long as the owner has allowed pets)

what happens if a shop doesn't finish your order. this is to say, you bought a 100,000 poe war brig or whatever ship and the store does not finish your order-lets say 1 year.

So, what do you do if a store doesn't finish your order for the longest amount of time? or to say it closes down?

i'm asking this because i want to buy something but it will take a while and it says "a long time." to add to that, the store doesn't have many employees.

Hey there,

"A long time" means more than 50 days, however, the order panel overestimates 80% of the time, and whatever you are ordering is normally done in about 20 tops, just keep checking on your orders by clicking the "items" tab on your pirate page, and if work hasn't started after a significant amount of time, then you can cancel the order and get one somewhere else.

I am sharing a house with my sister. My sister is no longer using that account and we decided to change the ownership to me. How do we change ownership? The house is a 10k and 10d. And do the furniture get lost?

Unfortunately, you cannot transfer ownership of a house. You can, however, have her pick up all the furniture and trade it to you, so that it all belongs to you.

If it's important that you own the house (so that you can add roommates yourself), then you'll have to buy a new one, sadly.

It would be best for ye to post an inquiry in yer ocean's bazaar forum as the prices for things are very different for each (or at least for the dub vs. sub oceans). If ye look at recent posts in that forum ye might also find others selling the same items to get an idea of what they are selling for.
I hope that helps.
