Dual Disarm [two-actions] The captain makes two Strikes, one with their rapier and one with their main-gauche (in either order). If both Strikes hit, the ship captain can attempt to Disarm the target. Their multiple attack penalty increases only after all the attacks are made.

No Quarter! [one-action] (auditory, concentrate, emotion, linguistic, mental) The captain orders their shipmates to fight without mercy. All allied creatures of equal or lower level within 20 feet of the ship captain gain a +1 status bonus to attack rolls and damage rolls until the end of the ship captain’s next turn.


The captain is the ultimate authority on a vessel, responsible for the livelihood and well-being of everyone on the ship.

The captain can gain all these spells in place of Dual Disarm.
