So far my only beef with this amazing game is there are a few actions that require a special requirement that's not indicated on the actions boards. IE: Emigration requiring payment of what round you are on. Pillaging and its use/need for ore. The same with Whaling. For the latter two, for learning, I've resorted to just putting an ore on each action space.

Emigration does show paying silver with a question mark, but that is the same symbol as the space to buy special tiles, so fair point.

Ore is less of an issue in my opinion. Neither action REQUIRES ore. The longboats have squares to remind you that you can use it, and the whaling boats have the free ore and the square.

And also the cards/resources you can use to alter the dice result are what you get if you fail to succeed? For example 1 sword + 1 stone if you fail Plundering?

Emigration symbol makes perfect sense to me.

And, as mentioned before, pillaging doesn't require ore.

Yes, and these are shown on the board next to the action. They are pretty tiny, but hunting would show "wood" and "bow" for example.
