comment Should I respond to 1 NT in a suit or NT holding 17 HCP and a void?
Absolutely. Only after you know the point count is it important to figure out how many losers you can't avoid on the lead.

comment Where did the “can't build next to the robber” house rule come from?
This would be my guess as well. The reason for this "added power" likely being that the robber blocks production and there's no production on water. Since the pirate doesn't block production, a different ability is called for; hence the sea hex control. Apparently there's no fishing on Catan. Or there is, and it just doesn't produce much besides drunk fishermen.
