Booty shares are the breakdown of how booty is split at the end of a pillage. The captain of a crew chooses the type of booty share breakdown when he or she creates the crew, and he or she can change it at any time.

It's important to note that a higher number does not necessarily indicate a higher share. Consider these two examples:

Crew 1
Even

Let's say you finish jobbing with a crew that uses the "Even" (each player receives one share) booty share and a 25% ship restocking. On the pillage, the crew earned 10,000 PoE and there were four pirates onboard: you, another jobber, a senior officer, and a captain. The first thing that occurs is 25% of the booty being removed for ship restocking. The total is now 7,500. There are two jobbers, one senior officer, and a captain (1 share + 1 share + 1 share + 1 share = 4 total shares). Each person receives 1,875 PoE.

Crew 2
The Cruel Shelf

Let's say the next crew uses "The Cruel Shelf" (5/10/12/20/20/20) and a 25% ship restocking. The 10,000 PoE has 25% taken out accordingly. The 7,500 left is divided among the same four players (two jobbers, a senior officer, and a captain). Adding up the total number of shares, we get 50 (5 + 5 + 20 + 20). However, the captain and senior officer each receive twenty shares while you only get five. They get 3000 each, but you only get 750. Hardly fair, is it?

As a jobber, try to job with crews with even or near even shares.

It is also important to note that more favorable shares do not always mean more money for the jobbing pirate. A jobber can make far more money working for a highly skilled crew that offers slightly uneven shares than on a ship run by that offers even/Jobber's Delight shares but loses many battles due to incompetence.
