How Profession Skills Work

Like Craft, Knowledge, and Perform, Profession is actually a number of separate skills. You could have several Profession skills, each with its own ranks, each purchased as a separate skill. While a Craft skill represents ability in creating or making an item, a Profession skill represents an aptitude in a vocation requiring a broader range of less specific knowledge.

Blood & Iron has an extensive selection of specific Profession skills, but it is impractical to attempt to cover all possible professions. The players or the Games Master should feel free to create any Profession skills that they feel are appropriate for their game if they are not covered by the existing skills.

You can practice your trade and make a decent living, earning about half your Profession check result in silver pieces per week of dedicated work. You know how to use the tools of your trade, how to perform the profession’s daily tasks, how to supervise helpers, and how to handle common problems.

Additionally, when making Knowledge checks about topics related to your Profession, you gain an expertise bonus equal to one-third of your ranks in your relevant Profession skill.
