This page is about a source of missions / jobs.

Jobs are offered at the Tyrants Gate in Ephebe and the Onion Gate in Ankh-Morpork. Up to six players may participate together to escort a caravan between the two cities. [1]

At the Tyrants Gate in Ephebe, the schedule is:

Telonis says with an Ephebian accent: The schedule's very busy at the moment! Let's see... 
Telonis says with an Ephebian accent: First, there's a caravan leaving for Ankh-Morpork with a rare and valuable cargo.  Calls here on Thursdays at 1:00am and Octedays at 1:00am. 
Telonis says with an Ephebian accent: Next, a caravan with reasonably priced merchandise leaves for Ankh-Morpork every day at 2:00pm. 
Telonis says with an Ephebian accent: Oh, and I almost forgot!  An expedition for Ankh-Morpork leaves every day at 4:30pm.  I believe it carries a profitable cargo.
Telonis exclaims with an Ephebian accent: With all that activity I'm sure you can find some employment as a bodyguard with one of them!

At the Onion Gate in Ankh-Morpork, the schedule is:

You ask around and hear that a caravan with extremely expensive trade goods departs to Ephebe on Tuesdays at 2:00am and Saturdays at 2:00am, a caravan with moderately expensive trade goods departs to Ephebe every day at 9:00am and a caravan with rather expensive trade goods departs to Ephebe every day at 9:00pm. 

The job requires following the caravan and protecting it from bandits along the road. More expensive cargo attracts more powerful bandit squads.

Experience and money is awarded upon completion of a successful escort mission. It seems that amounts depend on contribution in some way but additional research is needed.
