The next is how I picture the Freelance Guild:
Started over a millenium ago, the Freelance Guild has become known for its Honor and Courage.
Although all those in the guild are mercenaries, not all of them are what you would expect, most are of the Military type but not all, there are those select few who were once something else.
Their stories and their histories are theirs to tell. It should be noted that its concidered impolite to ask any personal questions of their prior exsistance, unless that person offers information first. It signifies that "It doesn't matter where you came from, or what you did before. You'll only be Judged for what you do after joining the Guild.
