=====It's a Living, Not Dying=====

You play freelance members of the Mercenary's Guild in the medieval / renaissance fantasy city of [[Blacpool]]. You are unattached to any one company. You are permitted to take jobs as you wish. The Job Board is a big peg board which has multiple tiles on it. The tiles all correspond to a specific task / job. The mercenary completes the task, gets paid, and goes on to the next job.

Easy right?

Unfortunately, it's not always that simple, especially in Blacpool which is a melting pot of all cultures. It's always interesting what is going on beneath the streets, in the shadows, on the rooftops. Still, an adventurer worth their salt can make their fortune and retire to the country, as long as they don't die. It's a living!

===First, decide your character's origin===

This includes your nationality, birth order, whether or not you know your parents and family, whether or not you grew up in poverty, affluence, or merely decent survival.


The City of Jasquon is a center of trade and travel, making it just as likely you'll see someone who was born locally as you will see those born far away. Nationality matters only to a select, prejudiced few, though some aspects do attach to kin from a specific country. Erendani, for example, are thought of as excellent crafters. Corenth and Lunargenti form the majority of folk, followed by Sydalian and Yarian, with Erendani and Amishkan coming up nearly last, finally you very rarely see folk from the Spindrift Isles or T'yang.
