Scouts - Worlds Apart

Below is the scout career for Worlds Apart. Development for this is just flying, I've only got equipment/magic items, monsters, world-creation, and small default setting to do. I'm at about 30,000 words.

Scouts
Enlistment: Int 5+
–1 DM for every previous career.

Scouts are one of the backbones of the seafaring world, conveying important messages, surveying border islands, and exploring the depths of the Forever Sea. They can be found at almost every port that launches into the deep sea.

Assignments: Choose one of the following:
   Courier: You serve as a message bearer for an important patron (organization, noble, trading company).
   Surveyor: You travel to border islands, assessing their worth to your patron.
   Explorer: You explore strange new islands, seeking out new life and new civilizations. Boldly going…
