The majority of the people of the Kern Valley are simple folk; farmers in the main with a scattering of carpenters, weavers, blacksmiths and the like. They live straightforward lives in small villages and scattered farms. Most do not travel far from where they were born and would never want to.

Defending the lords of the towers and their people are the army of guildsmen (often called adventurers). They take risks and fight battles for the good of the Valley, under the command of the Lords. The life of a Guildsman is not for everyone. Whilst it is true that they can gain extra privileges (and some might even become a Lord one day) it is a hard path. Should you choose this as your craft, you will have to fight, suffer great pain and in some cases be permanently slain before your time.
