“a Sailor with an authority greater than or equal to every other sailor”

ie. Yourself.

Being able to choose Captain is the boon of my role, and this would lower my power in the game in exchange for increasing yours.

I won’t do that for free unfortunately.

(I always warmly welcome commerce though. PMs, as usual.)

authority isn’t well defined, does a cook have more authority than the steward or vice versa?

Its defined in terms of the list of positions. So the cook would have more authority.

yes, cuddlebeam, its myself. I have made no secret of my desire to make the game actually happen.

[derrick] but the word authority isn’t currently used anywhere, much less defined, in the ruleset?
I can understand Captain, Chief Mate, Second Mate and Third Mate having that order of descending authority over everyone else just based on historical or numerical usage; however if you were to use the simple english definition of “authority” https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/authority “persons in command” would imply some sort of chain of command on the ship which also isn’t defined in the ruleset and for real ships varies depending on country.

See the proposal “The Drama’s Done”, which is named in the proposal and is currently popular.

oh sorry those hang around the queue for a while and I sometimes forget what’s in them before they’re enacted

for I think it’s handy in case there’s no Captain, like there wasn’t for most of the dynasty
