The relationship between the different classes within the Basin is governed by law and tradition.
Travelers and Bravos
Adventures generally fall into two categories: travelers and bravos. Travelers are unattached and generally move from settlement to settlement, seeking their fortunes or serving their own ends. Bravos serve a patron, providing protection, muscle or other services best performed by adventurous types. Most adventurers fall into both categories at one point or another in their careers, and so whether they do or not, all adventurers will be treated as one or the other. The two terms act as a short hand for describing the current status of a party.
