@Arkitekt Duvets are like a fantasy for me. I mean, I live in the subtropics and am allergic to down.
@Lord Orgasmo Are there reasons an Earl to have need of mercenaries? Are there criminal organizations that could have been threatening their outlying lands? Or even more local ones to their personal manor?
@Random Kitty Well, there are the Quickfoot and Swiftfoot gangs an Earl might want protection from. Although of course there are also your common thieves and thugs in the city that they may want some form of bodyguards for. Or perhaps they need you to get dirt on another Noble for petty political reasons.
@Random Kitty I think I am going to go for a spot in the Iron Saints as a mercenary for hire. That's why I'm there. Money for blood. And I doubt there's any shortage of that kind of work going on. Not sure about background but it could be a possible reasoning as to why they are both in the area. I kind of want her to be a bit of a stranger to people in the area. I'll have to rework her background a bit.
That's fine. Either way, it's just a thought since they easily could have hired the Iron Saints. And she could easily be a stranger in the area since these lands seem to be directly under the king. Jessica's family lands are farther out, sizable but less urban. She has spent time in the city but has also done her fair share of fighting. Although, it's much more out of boredom and a somewhat insatiable blood lust seeing as she has no real need for additional money. She does the work of defense of the land in her grandfather's stead.
