Each occupation has a set of skills in it that can all be mastered (5 ranks in each) subrtract the difference between your lowest rank and your highest trait in any occupation to determine your actual level in the occupation. During stories, only one of your occupations may be chosen to represent your place in a hierarchy and pay grade. This is called your chosen profession…you can change professions between stories, but not during them.
1 Initiated(low earnings, lots of bosses)
2 Experienced(moderate earnings, plenty of bosses)
3 Skilled(good earnings, few bosses)
4 Professional(great earnings, a boss or two)
5 Master(wealth, and your the boss)
