Several other people are brought to the main mast and whipped, or bashed with a rope. Nothing comes close to the brutality presented with Jakes though. While Master Scourge is selecting those for punishment his eyes linger on you, but he shakes his head and continues on.
After all the punishments of the day have been finished, rum rations are handed out to each person. Then the entertainments begin. The crew spread out through out the lower decks and making the most of their time: gambling, drinking contests, shows of strength and tales of piratical escapades abound.
Now it's time for a nighttime action: They are listed on the Gameplay Info tab. You can take one with little to no problem. You can take an additional action (anything marked with an asterisk) during the nighttime watch, but you have a chance of being fatigued the next day. Several of these actions can also be used to get information.
