Darkness over Oscadius
Adventurers are seen as figures of fascination, pity, admiration, fear and/or anger.
Some people admire and are fascinated by them. They can’t imagine giving up the relative safety of their ordinary lives. They can’t imagine a journey of more than a day or two and the prospect of camping overnight in the wilderness is terrifying to them. Also, they know that successful adventures are often rich and powerful, and that some can be helpful.
Others hate adventurers for daring to break the rules of society or consider them a bit mad. They may be pitied, or driven away.
Other folks may have had poor experiences with less savory or reliable adventurers. This could lead to anger, fear and possible mob scenes.
