    I’m not so sure about that. There are things that keep taxation within reason. For instance the higher it is the more it would effect peoples sense ability. Even so there are things that offset taxation as we saw in the Village. I believe Randy had been encouraging Ricther to set higher tax rates to match what he has seen in places like Yves. I wouldn’t ever go that high personally unless I knew that something would off set the Taxation. With Ricther picking the adventurers path and the village getting a bonus to the finding treasure should make a difference. I would also think that some monsters would be more inclined to hoard different types of treasure. Dragons for instance are known for hoarding large amounts of treasure. Hopefully Ricther will be capable of squeezing more tax’s out of his dungeon by the volume of loot and not just crazy taxation.

    It would be really nice to see more professional miners moving to the mist Village. With Ricthers outstanding luck he might get some Dwarves with dual Professionals. Not that I think all dwarves have dual professions but it would be highly desirable for a mercenary troop. Think about sword Danes. Virtually all of the Vikings that joined long ship crews were sword Danes. Everyone one of them were warriors. Many of them were very skilled at other things as well such as blacksmiths, ship builders, sailors, fletchers, traders and many more. At the very least I expect a blacksmith and a blacksmiths helper to be part of the mercenary troop. As mercenaries they would all be fighters and adventurers.

    I think its pretty much a given they will have some other way of making money, these are not professional mercenaries (edit: the ones they are hiring). I think Richter will get two hundred rank and file clan members from the stone clan, backed up by a few squads of granite breakers or other professional warriors.

    Hmmm, I wonder how those granite breakers will like knowing Ricther has their secret sauce recipe?

    Mostly, hard to say how many new items/DPs will the bugbear adventurers contribute to the overall growth.. they might help reach lvl 15..

    O they will recognize the dwarves ninja moves. There is NO way around it. That’s part of the Authors Method. Its his way for his self character to one up everyone. Like you think you got some kinda secret moves? Well I got your secret moves and some of my own.
