Villagers are different than most people. They service farmers for their daily life, but the commerce of their hearts is news and stories. But, unfortunately, those stories are exaggerated, and the villages do their best to make it even bigger.
Villagers are only slightly more educated than "most people." Villagers can read and write but do not use grammar or sentence structure. They can not understand complex or legal documents. However, their math is fair, knowing how to multiply and divide.
Villagers are honest folk. Most can fake their way through the pleasantries and etiquette if they need to.
You will see an occasional noble in town and even an adventurer or two. If they are lucky enough to have a spell caster in residence, the caster will be a hermit for one of two reasons: first, when bad things happen, they get blamed, and second, when someone needs something, they are the first one people run to. Either is very tiring, to say the least. Some are helpful and available. They will be revered by most in the village and sought after for guidance. They pray to the same gods as above and to whatever God might be local. The Church of Light is good at providing small chapels for the villagers and farmers in most villages to pray to whatever God is needed at the time. A priest (non-spell casting clergy) will provide wisdom, take offerings, and pass on messages to the clerics and others in authority. You know magic exists. They may have seen a spell or two. If they are fortunate and have a local caster, then magic is special and only used when needed. It is treated like an exceedingly rare commodity that the village will protect.
Seeing Monsters and Undead is exceedingly rare. You may have witnessed the aftermath of these stories, and the villagers will keep that story alive and pass it along. They live in the village for mutual protection. They know that travel in unprotected areas is dangerous.
Everyday magic items are typical for the Gentry. While a commoner could have one, it is rare. The Gentry might have unusual items with the same expectation. While rare and above are owned by the nobles, the very wealthy, and adventurers. Artifacts, Relics, and legacy items are very scarce and hard to find. When you desire these, you must quest for them. If you want anything, let me know. Arranged marriages are the norm.
Background: You are self-reliant and physically work hard. You know the basics of surviving in the wild. You know some essential plants and animals. You have some social skills and some basic etiquette. Your marriage was arranged during a planting festival when you were 5 or so. Most marriages take place in the spring after you become an adult.
