"I might! I was thinking of looking for some adventuring jobs nowish since we're between sessions but I could stick around for a bit longer."

"I'm looking too but I can't always find something right away when I want it, adventurers are only so much more cosmopolitan than people who charge me triple for falafel."

He rolls his eyes. "Adventurers should be much more that, it seems like it should come with the job!"

"Are you saying you haven't met the type that just really likes stabbing lawless evil things?"

Permalink

"Oh I've met them I just disapprove of them and think they're doing it wrong."

Permalink

"What's your philosophy of adventurism, then?"

Permalink

"I don't so much have a philosophy of it as think that there are ways to do it that improve the world and ways to do it that don't so much."

"But there's sometimes money in stabbing the lawless evil things!" she says innocently.

Permalink

"I'm pretty sure the ways that the free flow of money improve the world emerge in the aggregate under some ideal conditions and do not necessarily hold for every individual monetary transaction."

"Ah, you attended more than one of the economics classes."

Permalink

"I teach some of them, I darn well should have!"

Permalink

"Is it fun, teaching them?"

Permalink

"I enjoy it quite a bit! But it's more fun with people who are actually interested and most people who take these are in that category, so there's a selection effect going on here."

Permalink

"Yeah, I bet that helped. I liked tutoring, sort of, when I was in school."

Permalink

"What's school like, where you're from?"

Permalink

"I've never been to school anywhere else so I'm not sure what the salient differences are. A lot of it's co-ed?"

Permalink

"- huh! Your boys get educated?"

Permalink

"Yeah, they do. They usually don't make it into the advanced classes but not all the girls do either."

Permalink

"I guess other than all the murder stuff is pretty okay then. ...or at least not that terrible."

Permalink

"Slavery. Murder and slavery."

Permalink

"Right, that one too."

Permalink

"But yes, apart from those - and constant food anxiety, which relates to both - it's just a society which has all the normal society things like art and love and civilizational edifices of various types."

Permalink

"But the amount of those is sufficient to tip all of you over to C.E.? I suppose it would be, given how bad they are, if it's sufficiently widespread..."

Permalink

"I haven't found counterexamples who died old enough to have gone to trial. I can't scry on my own yet, though, I've been doing research by buying crystal ball uses."

Permalink

"Do you have any particularly nonmurderous dead kin in mind or are you trying some vague candidates?"
