2400+ 19th Century Occupations

I was unsure what this would offer with the preview being so small. However, the three samples in the descriptions and the mass of text I could see in the preview (and the very reasonable price) swayed me to give this product a try.

And Wow! This truly is a list of 2452 Occupations. Sure every entry is the title and a brief one or two word sentence but that's all you need.
There is no need for a skill listing telling you the Bonesetter needs some sort of medicine or heal skill, or that the Fur Cutter needs survival or some sort of nature lore skill. Placing the appropriate skill for the job is pretty easy.

I'm not sure how a boarder or a freedman are occupations but I'm very happy with the added depth this can give any campaign set in some sort of a 19th Century.

2452 occupations to be precise, read through and conjure up what manner of men and women plied this trades... perhaps to add a little spice to a character's background - "My father was a waterproof garment maker, so at least I know how to keep myself dry when it rains!" - or to make the fellow you strike up a conversation with down the tavern a little more interesting, as he's a tobacco spinner (maker of cigars) he could use a good stripper... of tobacco leaves, dear heart, not what YOU were thinking! (If you are looking for individuals of negotiable affection, they are in there too, never fear.)

It's not clear how you can generate these randomly, it would need to be a wierd assortment of die-rolls, but never mind... read them and use whatever jumps out as entertaining, intriguing or appropriate to your needs. Some are slang terms, some the actual designation of the trade in question, all seem as far as I can tell accurate and true to the period, a fascinating time as the industrial revolution took hold and many people struck out in new directions rather than following in the family trade without question.

Excellent for giving flavour to your world, be it historical or a Victorian-era Call of Cthulhu or Vampire game, or maybe a spot of steampunk takes your fancy.
