The Hero's Call
Heroic Classes in Saleh'Alire
These are the Soldiers, Clerics, and Arcanists of the world- among others. Those who have been called by something undefinable; driven by a wanderlust, and a strong thirst for excitement- or, perhaps, by something much larger than themselves entirely... Regardless of what they seek or what drives them, however, they are compelled to explore the difficult and mysterious places of the world, far away from the villages and cities which originally spawned them; they lead lives of constant movement, flux, and intrigue which other more common people would never dare lead (and most would even dread the very thought of).
Most people born in Saleh'Alire may become something like a Candlemaker, a Healer, a Blacksmith, or a Cartwright- respectable but common professions which aid the world in their own small ways, through the provision of everyday services and the fulfilment of basic needs. Others more adventurous in spirit may instead become Archivists, Archaeologists, Exploreres, and Scientists- solid, respectable professions helping to expand the world's knowledge and range... But there are some Alirans who choose to specialize in something far bigger than even that- and, perhaps, far more nebulous in nature.
Aye, mother, I have my socks- and extra changes of small clothes. And yes, I got your last package forwarded to Rothshield. Admittedly, I like the hat you sent- but no one is going to take me seriously if I wear a bright orange knitted cap to slay dragons.— A young adventurer, in a letter home to his mother
