Just ‘cause there’s dragons about and mighty wizards prowlin’ the lands don’t mean regular folk like you don’t need regular jobs. The lord regent built a bridge near your town, and by his word that bridge has a toll. Tolls don’t collect themselves, you know?
You used to think you’d be one of them “adventurers” with a sword strapped to your ass and some maiden in a bejeweled corset on your lap, but it wasn’t meant to be. Your ma took ill, or you had one too many run in with the local constable and then next thing you knew you were hard up for a job, and that goddamn bridge was staring you in the face.
It takes a handful of workers to make sure things go smoothly on the Regent’s bridge, and it takes a good pair o’ stones to collect those tolls from every soul who crosses, no matter if they’re wearing pure gold plate writhing with magical snakes or carrying the bloody heads of a whole family over their shoulder. A toll’s a toll. Everybody pays.
