    Default Beggar's Union - get a promotion, get another bag...

    In the Beggar's Union, rank was indicated by the number of bags that a member carried. With the exception of the Union Chief, who carried only the Dog Beating Stick, all other members carried an increasing number of bags for each rank that they are promoted. The most "decorated" members carried up to eight bags.

    Wasn't this a bit of a burden? Maybe it symbolizes the burden of responsibility that came with higher rank, but it must have gotten cumbersome to have to carry seven or eight bags around all the time.

    It's cumbersome in the same way jewelry and nice clothes are more cumbersome than shorts and a tshirt. Not very much in the way, but u get a heck of a lot more attention and respect when you wear it so most would happily do it.

    The bags are probably loose, light and empty anyway. Probably no heavier than a little hand towel. The higher your rank the bigger your advantage in inter-gaibang strip poker tournaments.

    There's no reason to be playing strip poker with a bunch of guys, unless of course they convinced HR to play.

    HR would probably blind them all, but hey, GX might be gullible enough...and a better choice.
