Thanks Susannah. That is why we need all perspectives on this. Some of tend to get caught up in "guy" skills.

To the list (not mine) I would include a chemist, a brewmaster, a distiler, and a teamster/both new and old style.

Oh yes! A brewmaster and a distiler would be, shall we say, more than popular skills. If you look at the skills as useful to a group and then project that to goups trading with other groups it would be invaluable.

Many Knights of old that were knighted by the church were said to have clerical privileges. They were able to Christian children, give last rites to the dying, and to pass on the word of the Lord, when ever possible. :geek: :mrgreen:
