it's the 8th century AD, britain is in an upheaval, all the various tribes are warring with each other. the various tribes are in a near constant state of warring, and bands of thieves and brigands around and even Germanic pirates pillaging around the coasts. You can be anything really, a trader, a general, a brigand, but you have to work up to it.

Bio: Was raised in a small cottage near a lake. Dad was a fisherman, never knew his mother and strives to get away from his childhood home. Had little friends and was always afraid that something was out to get him. Often times he would slip out into the woods and live there, thinking about his true idenity and purpose in this world. Above everything, he loves staring at full moons and sketching pictures of it.

"Are you offering employment?" I ask him. If he is, then I offer to fill the position (cash is very nice, especially in the start of RPGS )
If not, or if you can't get bartending jobs, then i walk outside.

Olina is about all you get, southern Britain of course, near the coast. You also overhear a rumor of bandit hideout in the forest


you can also try to recruit people, i will roll a D10 (10 sided die) to see how many people you get, it would be 3 shillingas to sufficiently equip them.
