From what I have read on the Brotherhood of the Coast, they had the best form of democracy ever devised too. The Capitan could be voted out at any
time, except in battle, when he or she was absolute ruler. Shares were divided equally, each man got a share, others, such as Mate, Navigator,
Carpenter, Sail Maker and Quartermaster would get more, (1 1/2 shares) and the Captain got two shares. There are instances when the treasure would be
no enough to go around, and some of the crew wound kill the others, or escape from the others, with the treasure. Bloodthirsty killers all, but they
were thinking men, weren't they?
