Ralstaan Professions

Below is a list of Ralstaan Professions, linking to the rules for adopting these professions for a character. While this list is extensive to the point of exhaustiveness it is not, and nor will it ever be likely to be, complete. But before attempting to make additions read the setting and other professions carefully. You may well find that the names given below are misleading, or more extensive than they might appear at a glance and, more importantly, no setting in the Darkrealm is quite the same as the real world. Landsmen in Allornus can't do everything they did in the real middle ages, and many omissions have been made for good reason.

The tables below lists the only common player culture of Ralstaa - namely the Ral. Other races such as the Raak, Faerie Folk, Goblyns or Trols have simpler cultures and only exist in relatively small cells. When reading the table below assume that the frequency entries have the following meanings: Very Common Professions are those which entire communities can be founded on, and in an appropriate community (a Beggar is unlikely to be encountered in the depths of the Starwood) there are likely to be countless people adhering to this Profession. Common Professions are those essential to a community, but needed in smaller numbers, and even in a small village one might expect to find one individual of this profession, while larger settlements will have several. Rare Professions are not found in every settlement, and can either be found singly or in small groups in large settlements, or only in areas where their specific skillset is directly applicable. Very Rare Professions are those that are highly specialized and, perhaps not coincidentally, highly valued. While groups of these individuals might be mobile there are seldom more than a handful even in major cities. Extremely Rare Professions are usually either extremely skilled, or not of much use to society at large, but because there are so few of these individuals they are usually in high demand regardless of which is true.
