The thought of being an adventurer scares the willies out of sensible citizens of Rassilon. It is a life of constant hardship and danger, albeit tempered by glory and fabulous treasure. Torch bearers are hirelings, often young boys or older men (whose days in the mortal realm are waning) who accompany adventuring parties to carry their torches and lanterns, as well as haul general equipment. While fit and healthy, they are not combatants—they seek to bask in reflected glory, being able to say proudly that “they were there,” and earn a few extra gold scields from whatever vast haul their masters unearth.
A typical torch bearer charges 5 gs per week, plus adequate food and drink. Longer-term employment can be bartered down to a reduced rate.
