s the country falls, guards returned to lords and monarchs have become very unfriendly to travelers and adventurers since now they do have to secure their own properties.
There are some friendly guards out there, but it is harder than finding Orc in bunch of Goblins.
So remember, be nice when you talk to guards.
Guards are mostly divided to guarding outside of the castle and inside of the castle, and they do have class difference.
erchants these days are the most important part for constituting town. Just like guards, there had been many changes through merchants as our country falls.
There's no more merchant who will give you credit, you no longer can buy a piece of bread without certain amount of Shild. But, they do still have their basic working ethics, so they won't sell anything to those who have bad reputation.
But, there are some wandering merchants who don't mind dealing with rascals. They were in warfare, and it was luxury for them to keeping those ethics.
Probably the most popular merchant will be horse dealer. As horses get rare, the price got sky high, now you can't even buy one with the price of golden weapon. That's why every threat horse dealers like their master, even some lords are like that.
ustodians are mostly divided into three groups, a mercenary, mercenary guild, and actual castle. Usually castle custodian is the highest class.
If mercenary and mercenary guild's custodians are in charge of their troops and guild, a castle custodian can be called as a castle staff in charge of that actual castle like a small country. They are also governing country's human resources, and they also get to balance their territory's tax rate.
Custodians not really getting no appreciation from inhabitants, but do get some respect since they are in very high position.
hough whole continent is in warfare, most of natives are actually living quite peacefully.
They are usually females who have merchant or mercenary husbands, which is very obvious that they love to talk about small things, and try to make conversation with travelers or adventurers. You should listen to them carefully since there's no one knows better than natives about their region.
Also, doing small favors like errand or slaying monsters will be very useful for your traveling expenses. These homely people sometimes can really surprise you with their absurd secrets.
