"28!!" Sage gasped, looking rather shocked at Sanz. How did he gain so many levels faster then her?! She had so many people and friends teach her things. She gained a lot of mundane exp. Was Sanz doing more combative things? Sage almost felt out of touch with Sanz. Was she not pulling her weight? Well she had been trying to pull her weight.

"Wow, uh. I'm level 26..." Two whole levels behind. Sage let out a defeated sigh, "I guess we should take on a question in the early 20s level requirement. Nothing above level 25. preferably level 22 or 23." Sage mentioned, hoping Sanz didn't reprehend her for being behind in leveling.

Sage straightened up and looked over the questing bored, her hand on her chin as she did so. "Hm. Not a lot of a selection... All look like combat like quests rather then high level delivery. We might be just getting out of the range of quests that are... safe."

So Sage was a little behind--Sanz's problem was he still didn't really have a full grasp of what a difference in level translated to. In some environments, a difference of one or two levels was a massive gap in power, while others even a 10 level difference was only a minor difference. Of course, that also widely depended on what skills the two of them had focused on. He and Sage hadn't really collaborated recently on what they were focusing their skills on. They had agreed that Sanz would be fulfilling more of a tank role, while Sage focused on damage, but beyond that nothing. He made a mental note to bring it up this evening.

"Any delivery quest that isn't extremely low level will have some kind of complication anyway. If we're going to be fighting, I'd rather know about it up-front."
Sanz carefully looked through the various documents on the board. Protect a small village from goblin attacks, deliver a parcel through the dark forest, escort a minor noble family on a road plagued by goblin attacks, gather rare monster materials for a blacksmith, destroy a fort infested by goblins...
"There are a lot of quests involving goblins here... Maybe that's a good place for us to start. Most of the quests range from a recommended level of 18 to 23 depending."

"Goblins.." Sage said very slowly, "I don't like that its plural.. I heard those things can breed like rabbits." Sage said, rubbing her chin slowly as she looked at the quests. Dispute her negative tone, Sanz probably knew her enough that she was actually interested in it. The infested fort sounds fun, but also like a lot of ground. I don't know how much just the two of us do and if that is a job to do in a half a day. Let along a full day. Thoughts?" Sage asked and she pulled the request off the bored.

"Somehow I doubt that we'll ever find a single goblin by itself. At least if conventional wisdom holds."

Conventional wisdom. About creatures that had been fictional less than a month ago in some fantasy land. Why the fuck was this normal now? Sanz shook his head and thought over the quest. They could try to bring some others in--but Sanz actually wanted the opportunity to see how far the two of them had come by themselves. Plus, it would give them the chance to talk about things moving forward. If they took something maybe... level 20? They would probably be fine.

"Depends on how large a fort is here. How many goblins does it house? A dozen, a few dozen? A hundred? more? What's the quest level given?"
Sanz took a glance at Sage while the young man pored over the quests.
"If nothing else, I'm much more confident in my survivability than before."

"I mean, I think we could do it!" Sage mentioned to Sanz, but judging by the unamused look that he currently had, she didn't think he was feeling this one. "Fine, Fine!" Sage said turning to look back at the bored. She hummed and hawed for a bit before reaching for another one, "Ooh look at this one. Escort mission. Our family is too far from the city. We plan to relocate in the city, but we need an escort on the dangerous roads. Please help. See that sounds easy!" Sage cheered, "And it pays a decent bit of silver." Sage turned the paper around so Sanz could take a moment and read it for himself.

Sanz raised an eyebrow at the mention.
"Let me see that..."

---------------------------------------------------
Seeking Asylum
Poster: Oswald Hunter

Over the last month, our farm has come under attack by goblins again and again. Adventurers have already come to clear them out multiple times, but they always come back. My family is seeking to move into the town of Thymescira, but are almost certain that goblins will attack us on the road. Looking for brave adventurers willing to ensure the safety of my family and kill any goblins. We're already packed, I reckon it will take us about two whole days to make it back.

Required level: 19
Pay: 11 silver, 6 copper, one fresh cheese wheel
Requirements: All members of the hunter family and their chosen belongings make it safely to Thymescira.
-----------------------------------------------------

That... seemed doable. More to the point... that family...
"I think we can do this. We're both at least 5 levels above recommended, so we probably will be fine. The reward isn't bad either. That covers us for the entire week if need be."
