A Knight, a Highwayman, a Monk, and a farmer walk into a bar. The Knight says, my sword will protect our cities and bring us prosperity. The Highwayman says, I will patrol our roads and make sure our trade spreads our good far and wide. The Monk says, I will help our people strengthen their faith, and bring them good fortune. Finally the farmer says, “Hey I’m just going to lay down over there…You never know what’ll happen, I’ll probably win the game in the end anyway.”
