After learning about the Alley Cats I’ve done some research on the adventurers of Erde, and discovered they have a guild all their own: the Mercenaries’ Guild. Now these people don’t just go exploring wild places looking for old ruins to loot or goblins to slay. They’re the ones who take on all those random quests that we Terrans think of as “side quests.” Cities and nations (and in between) contract mercenaries to fill out the ranks of their armies. Merchants contract them to guard shipments. There are nautical companies that contract to work on ships, guarding against pirates on the open water and bandits in port. It’s a fascinating subculture, a sort of cottage industry of violent tendencies. Kinda like my family.
