List of Professions anywhere?


Recommended Posts

So, we get a good few professions in the BRP Core. But I find them somewhat lacking a bit if I'm hosting a dark age or a fantasy game. So before I get along and start writing the Professions myself, I thought it might be a smart thing to ask you guys if you know of a Profession list with write ups or where I can get them?

Cause I'm looking at the flexible Lifepath system of Burning Wheel, and would need a good ammount of dark age/middle age/Renaissance/fantasy professions.

Another source would be Stormbringer/Elric!. The following professions are represented therein:

Beggar

Craftsperson/Shopkeeper

Hunter

Lost/Forgotten

Mercenary/Bodyguard

Paid Assassin/Thug

Peasant/Farmer

Soldier/Guard/Watchman

Tax or Rent Collector

Troubadour/Entertainer

Between those two sources, you've got most non-setting-specific professions covered.
