The first Hermit level is, like, level 5. This is sad. I REALLY didn't like my Hermit stage....

I'm not a mercenary–and not just another mercenary! I'm a GREAT mercenary!!! Now as great as that may seem…is mercenary really a step up from a *FAMOUS* military officer??

There's a lot to be said for self employment.
You can always get what you want if you never count the cost.

Is being a mercenary really a form of self-employment? I don't think so…'cause the person who pays for my services would be called my 'employer'…that would mean I am being employed by someone else, and therefore am not self-employed.

Mercs are contractors.  Whether individual or in a band they are self employed but as with all contractors they sell their services to a client.  Same relationship as lawyers and the guy who cleans your sewer lines. . . :P

Being a beggar doesn't necessarily mean you have to go to a soup kitchen. You could just jump off a bridge and end it. Or steal a banana.

I've heard of pan-handlers that make a living wage, roughly middle class.

Yeah.  There is a guy in this town that does that.  A lot of people know who he really is . . . he lives in a $500k home (which is rather large around here.  Average 5 bedroom home is $200k).  So yeah.  He makes a killing.

Wow prices in that neck of the woods are nice.  3Br 2B doll houses are like 600k-800k here.

Speaking of soup kitchens, I used to own one....like, 11 levels ago. Wow....I didn't realize it was that far back. Life has changed drastically for me since that time....
