So.... Ever since I cut ties with Marcus Tyrex, I've had trouble keeping my reputation as one of the good guys. I pay my dues to the state, I pay my crew and keep em drunk and filled with food. My rep is always above "honest captain" but somehow I constantly get reduced to adventurer. I thought it might be because of rep deteriation, that the rep always go to default over time. But suddenly I stand in the tavern with one of my officers accusing me of being a vagabond, villain or an employer of such and basically tells me he can't stand my guts. And if I let the rep go to default I very often see my rep decrease into rascal and lower even though I'm not directly involved in brigandage. I'm done with the "FTJR" dlc and currently doing the main. just met Calhoun. Game mechanic or is there a part of a seaman's life I might've missed?
