I really appreciate the work that's gone into the riddles and think they're a great part of the game, but they could really do with being more worthwhile. I notice many players ignore them over other more lucrative tasks that take less time.
To turn pirates into prime riddle solvers, I propose that riddles receive their own reputations with titles and maybe even a new skin to unlock for everything on the outposts. They could even be separated from the gold hoarders typical X marks the spot maps and made exclusive to messages in bottles/books/barrels. This would bring more value to searching for those too.
This change could be introduced through a Bilge Rat adventure detailing the new value of riddles, we could receive doubloons for solving a riddle on every main island or riddles that require the help of another crew to solve, so many possibilities!
Alternatively we could see more valuable treasures found from completing riddles, maybe exclusive riddle treasure or just guaranteeing higher tier chests would be enough to tempt players into looking for the locations of cave paintings and ill fated adventurers again.
TLDR: Make a bilge rat adventure out of riddles and increase the amount of gold received from completing them.
