    Actually, it sounds more like a Housewife.

    The nicest (I don't say most accurate) way of describing what we do for the NPCs is that we're doing them a favour, because it needs to be done and they can't leave their post.

    Oh my god, that’s accurate! I’ll never look at a quest giver the same way again!
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out & proclaiming "WOW, what a ride!"
