Recruitment

In addition, in order to keep command an Arkanaut Captains must ensure that their expedition is lucrative, or else they risk facing a Code-approved mutiny.[3a]

Privileges

While the rule of a Captain over their craft is absolute, they nonetheless answer to Arkanaut Admirals.[3a]

Furthermore, in accordance with Article 2, Point 2 of the Kharadron Code, Captains receive two shares of a galkhron.[1a]

If a Captain fails in their duties during a journey, and the shareholding crewmembers aren't confident that the situation might improve, then the crew may usurp a captaincy. Such mutinies are allowed by Artycle 1, Point 5 of the Kharadron Code.[2a]

In accordance with Artycle 1, Point 6 of the Kharadron Code, democratically deposed Arkanaut Captains are not dishonoured; they simply lose their rank and join the crew.[2a]
