We all worked for a baron in differing capacities until he got invaded by a neighbour. We worked together to make our escape and manage to get to safety in an another area. We worked so well together and having lost most of what we had we kind of just stuck together hiring out our services trying to build a life again.
After our escape we accepted any job we could find but after building up a small reputation we can a bit more picky on jobs taken. Notably Gelder pushed for accepting quests that involved injustice though on occasion the bog standard defence jobs, tracking jobs, bounties, escort missions and the like being accepted.
