Professions & occupation[edit source]

Well, before I start doing anything, I'd like to discuss all this thing, coz I think it's important. So, everyone is welcome to post their suggestions. - John Miles (talk) 18:00, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

Maybe Mercenary instead of "Military man"? SMiki5five (talk) 18:57, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
First I wanted to call it just Soldier and list there characters under 2 subheadings: "Notable generals, commanders and knights" and "Notable common soldiers", but maybe it wouldn't be very precise in this case. But to have separate Soldier and Knight?.. I think the "profession" is about the same: just kill people in the name of the king/duke/baron/etc. And what to do with Vernon Roche or Iorveth?.. They're hardly "knights", nor they are common soldiers - they are "commanders", so I wanted some uniting term for all those "generals, commanders, mercenaries, soldiers". And "mercenary" won't do for that: most generals and commanders are not mercenaries, as well common enlisted soldiers. E.g. Odrin - what the shit of "mercenary" is he? :) Just a poor fucking infantry. - John Miles (talk) 19:39, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
PS. I also have some doubts about Priest. Maybe Cleric is better, because I wanted to put there all priests, monks, druids, soothsayers, prophets, pellars, etc. - John Miles (talk) 19:39, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
The same with "Unemployed" - thinking maybe "Loafer" is better. This could fit both unemployed do-nothing nobles and poor beggars. - John Miles (talk) 20:06, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, "loafer" is good. I'm not sure about "cleric"... it also sounds a bit "priestly", though if we are reffering to D&D Cleric, it could be. SMiki5five (talk) 13:04, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
