The PCs all start out living in the same settlement that will hopefully become their home base. There are three levels to the home base. Level 1, the biggest level, is the full settlement itself. Level 2, the intermediary, is the fortification of the settlement, the town's keep. Level 3, the small, personal level, is the local inn and tavern where the PCs will hopefully return to unwind after a long adventure.
They may come to protect and eventually own the tavern, the keep, or even both.
