So I bought Inner Sea Intrigue to see what the enchanting courtesan looked like, and I was amused to discover that the book has a section on schemers in the Inner Sea region that includes our old friend from Freehold, Tabansi. Apparently, he's rumored to be a leader of anti-colonial movements in the area? Would've never guessed that from when we were in Freehold.
I assume every NPC is higher level than us. It saves time.
Mind you if one accepts that as true, and observes that it is the lower level PC's who actually do things then it becomes logical to assume that NOT doing stuff earns more XP.
I say we troop back to Freehold, put our collective feet up and let the XP roll in. ;7)
