Mercenary Job Training

Description

As a mercenary, you’d depend on raw physique or aim for your attacks, focusing more on a good battle plan and tough armor than anything else. You’d learn to overpower your foes with sheer strength and determination, defend yourself with all manner of weapons and equipment, and fly a ship when the situation calls for it. The life of a mercenary is one of profit through violence.
