We must, however, take into consideration how can a "hero" act when traveling long distances to face an evil? At some point, I want to explore that theme in a story. It will likely only be partially addressed in the next book though maybe I find some room to explore it further.
What do you think? It's an awkward situation as your intent is certainly not evil, but you definitely require some goods in order to progress in your travels. Also, when time is against you, it's hard to do enough work to earn the money you need. If you have any ideas, I'll be glad to hear them and maybe I'll even apply them in my storyline.
