Why can adventurers not talk with the farmers?
Once, you had mentioned some of the background behind the Farms or Pastures section (LMM p.188-189), but I cannot find it on the forum.
You mentioned the low precedence of the adventurers and the fact that they are clanless outcasts that are not to be trusted, but there was something more as I recall. Just curious for more details and background.
Farms or Pastures
Behind the garrisons and fortified walls of towns, the brave few till the lands and herd the cattle that feed civilization. It is illegal for adventurers to so much as talk with farmers and herders; it is likewise illegal for the peasant folk to do any business whatsoever outside of a market.
Violating these terms is punishable by hanging.
Destroying farms or pastures that feed a settlement counts as a disaster for that settlement and imposes a -1 penalty to future town events rolls.
