Beggar  U

Historical background

About 20% of the medieval population were destitute and homeless, wandering the roads of Europe looking for work or for charity, and climbing beneath a roadside hedge to die. Although they were ubiquitous, they have been neglected by historians because of the lack of sources discussing them directly. One exception was the starving beggars who followed "King" Tafur on the First Crusade. They were utterly without fear and, when food was low, would go out and capture one of the Muslim opponents. They would then roast and eat him. Leaders of both Muslims and Christians feared the beggars and finally conspired to lure them out into a waterless desert and abandon them there without supplied. Only a few survived.

How does it work?

Place your donation bowl in front of you and start begging people for cash. People can put a bit of gold in the bowl which goes into your pockets when they close it.

You roll for XP when you get a donation, with the following restrictions: you can roll once every two minutes, and you can only get a donation from a particular player once a reset.

Donation bowls from Beggar and Performer count as the same object. You probably shouldn't take both jobs with the same character.
