I have a setting question of critical importance:
Is there such a thing as the Scarborough fair? And if so when can we go?
No idea, to be honest. The only event outside the baronies that I ever thought about was the yearly tournament in Gareth, and that only because it played a part in the old game I lifted this setting from.
But to go to a great fair or fesdtival in a distant city you will be able to afford the journey. And just enough money to pay your upkeep during journey and stay, but also to cover a potential loss of income. A big fair sounds like a great opportunity fior a bard to make good money, but there will also be strong competition from more experienced entertainers.
Speaking of competition: It looks like half this group will consist of bards.
Also: With ruby, muse, chula, andi, thorne, and yesiroleplay we have currently 6 players. I think for the moment the group is big enough.
Any more players and I feel I would not be able to provide as much interaction with the setting and NPCs as I believe a community-based game like this deserves.
