Villagers are people enslaved by the Arch-Illager. Players are a quest to defeat the Arch-Illager to save the villagers of the world. In the trailer, they have been seen wearing straw or possibly bamboo hats and have many traits ( farmer fisherman blacksmith butcher cleric and more)
villagers are brought to the prison after getting their village raided. so the only way to get out free is the player must free them from the dungeon.villagers could be the source of items,weapons,and potions.there is a chance of a wandering trader to spawn in dungeons to.so that will make fighting easier with better upgraded weapons.
