In troubled times, Warriors are the most common profession, and may range from common brigands and bandits, to ruthless amoral mercenaries and adventurers, to stout men-at-arms, and all the way up to the gallant knights in their shining armour and colourful tabards. As long as you have the strength to carry a blade and the will to use it, then you too can be a Warrior.
Being a Warrior means being in constant danger, moving from battle to battle, from war to war. Whether they were trained from birth for this, or were thrown into the deep end and had to sink or swim, Warriors learn quickly how to defend themselves or die trying. Whether at range or up close, you will encounter fewer dangerous opponents than a well-armed and armoured Warrior.
