War never ends in the Old World and that means there is always a need for fighting men. While the Empire does maintain a standing army, its strength is bolstered with Mercenaries. Nobles and rich Merchants also hire such fighters to protect their interests, many having what amounts to a private army.
Mercenaries range from wild youths to grizzled professionals with more than a dozen battles under their belts. These sell-swords come from all over, though Tilea is particularly famed for its regiments. All Mercenaries dream of untold riches, for most of them the reality is an early death and an unmarked or even mass grave.
NOTE: Mercenary Weapon Group is Crossbow, Short Bow, Sword, Axe, Spear, Dagger, Thrown Dagger
NOTE: If you take Common Knowledge (Tilea) and Speak Language (Tilea), your character can be from Tilea but has traveled to the Empire to find work, at your option.
