Group Building

How are the players grouped together?
Periodically, part of the Emperor's administration "randomly" selects citizens to take on projects to improve their citizenship (or face additional taxes). This is quite "random", and certainly doesn't target people who are "meh" about the Emperor. Anyway, this party was assigned a task, got along well, and completed the task. They decided, "Hey, we did good. Let's make a living at it." And that's where they are now, a newly-formed group of this happenstance. They managed to edge their way in with the university structure, getting jobs to schlep around for bigger names.
Does the party have a home base? Does it rove?
The party has a home base, but it does change it irregularly, sort of like a circus with a slow schedule.
Did you meet all at once, or over time? Who's the newest? Are there ex-members?
There are former-members that didn't join up with the group or shortly after "incorporation". There are also prospective members, though not too many.

I plan generally to roll these at the end for the next time than at the start. I can't improve THAT well. Sixes:
