The Contract of the Ship

Voted upon by the crew, written by Lillith

Shares of the profits:
Profits equal the total amount of pillaged and found valuables after deducting amounts for the repairs of the ship, purchasing of food, necessary long-term goods and medical expenses.

Captain gets 1 and a half’s share
Battlemaster / First Mate gets 1 and a half’s share
Quartermaster gets 1 and a half’s share
Doctor gets 1 and a half’s share
Carpenter’s get 1 and a quarter’s share
All other Crewmates get 1 share each

Feeding and Medicine:

Feeding is determined by a rota of consenting crewmembers
Those fed from are relieved from duties for half a day but are paid as normal
Medicine and Prosthetics provided as necessary for free

Laws and Punishments:

Positions and Laws are voted on by majority from crew, both can be revised when the position of captain is renewed.

Roles of crewmates (not including specialist roles mentioned above) are assigned by the Captain, roles during battle and defense are assigned by the Battlemaster.
Dereliction of Duty and Insubordination is punished with 5-50 lashes, depending on severity and the duty that was not performed.
Crew members can vote for new leadership or roles at any point, but those who attempt to do so during battle or similar emergencies will receive either flogging or execution if it is a frequent or repeated offence.

Those who steal rations receive 10-20 lashes and are forced to abstain from a number of rations equal to those that they stole.
Those who steal medicinal supplies are confined and added to the feeding list for a set period of time.
Theft of shares, loot and personal effects will be punished by 5-10 lashes, with the victim being compensated accordingly.

Duels are allowed with consent from each party and arbitration from a third relevant party (typically Captain or Battlemaster).
Assault will otherwise be investigated and instigators will be punished with either flogging or increased hours depending on severity of crime.
Murder will be punished with confinement and being added to feeding list indefinitely
Sexual assault (regardless of victim) will be punished with death by feeding.

Feeding on crew outside of the feeding rota or punishments will be punished with 20+ lashes.

In the case of a punishment later being ruled unjust, the arbitrator will be punished with 10+ lashes depending on the original punishment and the victim compensated accordingly with an additional share of loot or rations.

Any crewmate who wishes to depart from the ship may do so any time we dock with their allotted shares after brief memory alteration to protect the identities of those on the Siren’s Muse.
