    So earning potential isn't remotely proportionate to the amount of money or effort invested in one's education?

    What a wacky comedic fantasy world these fictional characters live in.

    I see posters and advertisements and recruiters all the time who promise adventure!

    If they were ever talking about D&D, I'd be in.

    I'm not sure I want to sign up for an adventure where PTSD is a class skill.

    Class skill means you can choose whether or not to put points into it. It's a class feature, you get it regardless!

    It's kind of a hybrid, like afflicted lycanthropy; there's a skill for dealing with it.

    Example of Continuity Nod, not foreshadowing.

    Then I have to apologise. I didn't check the link and assumed it was #1164.

    Well, that's the thing, isn't it? It's fun to play an adventurer; it's not so much fun to be one. And not just because motivation is weird. We're talking about one of those jobs where you deal with seriously bad things in order to make them less bad, and sometimes that doesn't work, and also sometimes you make things even worse, and then things being even worse is partly your fault and you just have to deal with that. It's not a fun job, is my point, unless you're a particular breed of psychopath (see Belkar).
