Akaine Omorrow: Cargo
"Well", Akaine said, smiling a little,"You may find this odd, but nothing that is a living creature can be considered cargo. This means that we free the enslaved and give them options as to what they'd like to do with themselves." She nodded before continuing. "This may sound very naive to you, but I like to think that if it has sentience, then it should be free." She smiled gently, looking at her crew members, before listening to their next questions. "Ah," She said, after listening to Leo's question. She had known that this one would come up sooner or later, and it was good that it was brought up so soon, before any scrabbling for goods could come to pass. She was about to answer when Regah piped up. She leaned back with a small smile and gave him her full attention while he gave the crew his idea on the matter. "As Regah mentioned," She paused a moment, giving a nod of approval for voicing his opinion, "certain items are on different value levels, and as such, a sort of bartering system has been made." She paused a moment. "Each crew member will be given coin for their service on top of a share of the combined loot that will also be paid in coin." She paused another moment to let that sink in. "If anyone wishes to purchase an item with some of their share or pay, (or some other deal)," she gave a small grin at this addition, "then they are free to purchase it. The first person to make a reasonable offer will get the item. If they wish to trade, then by all means, trade amongst yourselves." She pursed her lips a moment.
"We will be stopping at many strange places, so I recommend starting up a few bank accounts, as we'll be making return trips. This way your funds are spread out in case we have to abandon the ship." She was a bit more serious now, and obviously talking from experience. She didn't have to explain the gravity of having a ship destroyed and plundered. "There is no guarantee of any kind of safety on a pirate ship." She said this slowly and firmly, as if to knock it into their thick heads before saying the last piece in a gentler tone. "But I will promise that if it is in my power, I will do my best to make sure that we all are safe and successful." She took a moment to look each member in the eyes as she said this. Some might think her soft, but she truly appreciated every soul on her ship, and would consider them family once they officially joined.
