I'm currently trying to put my character down a sort of...politician job pathway. She's currently a public speaker and I plan to make her a diplomatic speaker as soon as possible. However, I've noticed that there isn't really anything for it further down the job tree, unless I wanted to move into a more militaristic function, which doesn't fit too well with where I wanted to take Fiera in terms of her character. (She's had enough of military stuff for one lifetime, unless completely obligated to do so.) There are specialized positions for jewelrymakers, survivalists, gardeners, warriors, etc. But anything to do with politics, public speaking, and (nonviolent) general charisma like that just don't have any further options.
I'm pretty sure that the labs is pretty much run by scientists, but it might be nice to have like, a borough mayor position or something? Granted, it's a very small suggestion and I doubt anyone would be interested in it but me... but... hey, what else is the suggestions box for. XD

-nod- We can do something with Politicians, but part of the issue with why politicians are put into a military tree somewhat is because in order to advance, one needs to have mixtures of lots of different skills. Could you think of Three skillsets that would work well together with Politician*** to create a non-military politics tree continuance for me? :3 That'd make it easier.
*** So we're looking for Charisma + Three others that make sense.

Probably Charisma+Academics would be the best bet, as a lot of the specialized jobs seem to be mixes of two. Knowing languages and stuff about the people they're talking to (along with being well educated in general) would be very useful. I could see some artisan skills such as poetry, author, storytelling, etc. being useful in speechcrafting. Husbandry I suppose as a third for things requiring a gentle touch/just seeming kind. I do think Charisma+Academics is the ideal combination though.
To create a 'Full Tree' for a specific job, it will wind up needing to have three options. -nod- I can totally do a double option, but I figured that you were wanting a 'end of the tree' form for it as well? (Like the ones that pay 150?)
EDIT: I'll look over what we have and see what can be done. -nod-

Oh! Yeah, sorry, I was only looking as high as the 60-75 credit jobs. Admittedly, it seems difficult to put together an 'end of the road' occupation for it. It would be nice, but obviously I understand if it doesn't end up working out lol.
I was wanting a future character to go down this path without the militarism as well. I like the idea of artisan skills becoming that third branch, when it comes to the 150c. It may start artisan rather than finish artisan, though...I was inspired by the phenomena we see in our world where an entertainment celebrity becomes an influencer, then grows into more direct politics, and then is president -cough-.
Lowest rank Entertainer. Requires 5 ranks in Artisan. Second rank Influencer. Requires 5 ranks in Artisan, Diplomat and Rogue. Third rank Politician. Requires 10 ranks in Anything else, Diplomat, Rogue, Both Ranks Barter, Morale, Star Charisma Fourth rank Senator. Requires 10 ranks in Anything else, Diplomat, Rogue, Both Ranks Barter, Morale, Star Charisma, Aweing Presence, Intuition, Story Telling, Literacy, Foreign Language, Foreign Script, Proper Language, Riddle-Speaker
That way one can go straight up the political alley like FF, and when they get to politician they merge. And Politicians in general have varied backgrounds and hobbies. I think the goal of the Senator gives enough to have to work up to. The highest war-y politician had 15 ranks in three specific categories, but this one is more open and only required 10 because I added a lot of specifics already. It is Charisma-Academics with a subtle touch of artisan - but mostly open to the individual. Also, I chose the title of senator, because (like the other 150’s) there can be multiple and it is not THE person like THE Archmage, or THE Prime Minister, etc. Also I felt Politician was elevated enough from a Diplomatic speaker who is like a more charismatic and political public speaker.

Oh, thanks Riku! I like your ideas! You're certainly a lot more specific with what skills are needed, and I'm so glad. XD My idea was more a vague... "Can we have... this? pls?" thing, so it's nice to see some more honed ideas come in.
Thanks for the input Riku, it really does help to get some extra input on what kinds of things could be used for their skill trees!
There will be politician jobs fixed up as soon as I get them figured out- this has been accepted. :3
Fiera Ferella: right??? i was really hoping i could find one of those pachee before the season was out.

Twilight-Claw: Is the site that is going to be used to host all those images also the type you'd need to pay for? (definitely noticed the broken images yeah. Photobucket feels like it is standing on its last legs. X3 )

Morgan: I'm just kinda nervous about them going down before things get moved over completely. It's prolly nothing to be worried about though. :3
May 20, 2020 22:13:15 GMT -6
Fiera Ferella: Thank goodness we're moving out of there? XD

Renathan: Ugh, photobucket has the images broke again. x3
