Worlds Apart Careers Summary

Now that we've got skills out of the way, we can start working on careers - the heart of the player-side game. Below is a list including their assignments. Note that a bit of how the magic system works in included in the Dweomercraefter description. Also note that unlike all other careers, it becomes easier to become a Dweomercraefter the more careers one has.

Drifter: Automatic
Everyone’s got a hard-luck story they’re ready to tell at the drop of a hat. Everyone’s been down and out - unsure of what to do and how to do it.

•    Native: You spend the term living among a basic people, learning their skills and ways.
•    Traveler: You wandered about, island to island and inter-island, calling no place home.
•    Scavenger: You are stuck in a large metropolis, low on money and unable to reach friends. Life is hard.

Dweomercraefters: Mag 9+
+1 DM for every previous career

Magic powers reality and you can tap into that power.

•    Priest: You pray to the divine and channel their power through you.
•    Philosopher: You express the higher orders of reality that lie beyond the understanding of the wizard and priest.

Dweomercraefters must choose their particular Dweomercraft specialty and Magical Talent specialty during their first term If dweomercraefting is not your first career, you gain *both* of those skill specialties as opposed to choosing a single Service Skill.

If during character creation, you gain a level of  Magical Talent that would put your skill level in that Talent higher than your Magic skill, instead increase your Magic skill by one level.
