In Pirates: Tides of Fortune, Island Fortuna starts out as a barren place. You have the opportunity to build it up as you see fit. Build up your stronghold and form allies with other pirates. As you erect buildings on your island you will gain access to additional resources.

There are three basic currencies to manage which include lumber, rum, and gold. Additionally, the special resources include gears, idols and pearls. These are each earned in limited quantities for specific actions. Idols, for example, are earned for attacking or defending. They are an integral part of the technology system of the game. Pearls, on the other hand, are gained for leveling up. They will allow you to upgrade certain unit stats through the Witch Doctor. These two resource oriented mechanics make Pirates: Tides of Fortune really stand out against other games.
