A ferry refers to a character that takes other characters to otherwise unreachable outposts or campaigns. This is possible due to the game mechanics that allow a party leader that meets the requirements for a quest to include party members who do not. In contrast, running allows party members to quickly reach an already accessible area by avoiding confrontation with foes along the way. Both runners and ferries might charge fees for their services.
The ferry obtains the relevant quest, invites however many clients as they can take, and follows the various steps in the quest to reach the intended destination. To continue ferrying, that character can abandon and retake the quest.
