Dress For Success

I wonder how many NPCs want to be adventurers and try to learn class skills. The gap between commoner and classed characters is pretty huge, so you’d think everyone would want to make that leap, increasing the hp and ability to survive hazards. To say nothing of the ability to kick ass.

But, of course, most commoners will remain commoners.

Which makes me wonder what the difference is. Are commoners just commoners because of a lack of natural talent? It’s odd to think that there’s a caste system or ability based hierarchy that commoners can’t overcome. Or is there an absence of dedication? Only the most dedicated and hard working individuals can become adventurers. Which seems odd given most adventurers seem like a bunch of crazy losers who just stumble into victory through wanton violence.
