Hent is the local quartermaster for the Warriors Guild. The man himself is very vanilla, esp when compared to the odd sorts that come and go commonly from the guild. He is very structured and has his missions prepared for each class of warrior. Like most assigned this profession, he is decent at assessing the difficulties of various missions and he’ll only assign them accordingly.
It is difficult to get a quartermaster to give you a mission above your rank. Not only could failure by the warriors put the mission in jeopardy, it also hurts the warriors guild reputation and finances. That is also not mentioning that it will put the members lives in danger; a dead member does nothing for the guild.
Also like most quartermasters, if a member of the guild builds up enough reputation threw successful missions (Or is constantly bantering him for tougher assignments) he’ll recommend you for promotion or to undertake trials for promotion. The later is more common, almost guaranteed for those who insist on promotion.
