In modern times adventuring was considered a noble profession, but before then it wasn't recognized and Adventurers were looked down upon even though they performed vital functions for society. The turning point was the Adventure Revolution. *children running to a meet a party of adventurers as they enter the village*
Before the Adventure Revolution, only one in 200 chose the path of the adventurer. The profession was not acknowledged as a proper profession at that time. Later, 8 out of 100 Roplan residents chose this profession.
In the beginning adventuring wasn't acknowledged as an actual profession. Youngsters heading off on adventures were considered crazy or odd, and they often had trouble finding work. They were looked down upon wherever they went, and generally only those working for evil enjoyed it, which further decreased the reputation of adventurers. After the Adventure Revolution, guilds were established and adventuring was acknowledged as a profession. It went from being an occupation of taboo to being desirable and dreamed about by children and youngsters all over Ropla.
Needed tools such as weapons depends on the class of the adventurer, but all need travelling gear such as a sleeping bag and a few cooking utilities.
Adventuring leads to many different workplaces, though it often requires the adventurer to go to places normally avoided by humans such as dark caves and deep forests.
Adventurers complete quests of any kind. Some might do any job available, others are picky. Jobs might including killing or stealing things. They might include protecting people or goods. They might include obtaining specific herbs or materials, or they might include running errands or destroying nests. Whatever the quest giver needs, there's usually an adventurer out there willing and capable. *Adventurer fighting a beast in a cave*
