I am an adventurer. I adventure. For a living, anyway. The pay is often terrible, but there is little else I can do. I suppoose I could wait tables. But the adventure aspect of waiting tables is slight. Nothing in comparaison to a voyage. And I get to have "adventurer" printed on business cards. You can't do that while waiting tables. Well, you could, but you'd be a liar.
Since the inaguration of this electro-log, I have died at least three times, perhaps more. I have lost many ships and more crewmen than you.
