and Professions of Abyssia
There is a difference between
classes and professions in Abyssia, and I would like to say
in many occasions besides the game. To make things
easier, I would help you to differ them.
Classes are what a person
naturally is. In other words, 'a natural' at fighting,
casting magic, thievery. Also classes are much related
to skills of the character. If the character have the
skills of pick-pocketing, move silently, climb walls, then theoretically
the character would be a naturalist thief. If the
character has abilities with swords and fighting, then the
character would be a fighter.
However do not allow me to
stereotype what are suppose to be classes because among
classes there are specialty classes. For instance an
Amazon (female warriors of the jungles or forest) is
consider to be a fighter, but her natural training had lead
her to be experience with more details; therefore her class
would be an Amazon and perhaps is a armor maker in her
tribe, which means that would be her profession to make
Now Professions what the
character does with his or her skills. If the
character is a fighter and can built weapons, most likely,
the character would have a blacksmith for a profession, but
that doesn't mean the character can't be a town crier in
profession and fighter in class. It would just seem a
little awkward but original of a fighter was a town crier;
original as mixing up two very distinct types, and awkward
being that the fighter uses his natural skills to tell the latest
list of some of the classes in Abyssia: (note this is not mandatory
to choose a class from this list it is just a guideline)
-Wizard Slayer or Inquisitor
that a Knight or a Priest are not classes, since a Knight
originates most likely from a fighter (not necessary, a
knight can originate also from other classes) and a Priest
most like originates from a cleric, shaman, druid, or even
mage (the same applies, can originate from a fighter or
anything else as well).
will give you more information on the professions.
The world of Abyssia does not
offer the most ideal living standards for everyone. Violence
and oppression have become an everyday struggle for some,
while others seclude themselves in the thick forests, away
from the hardships of Modern 'Abyssian' life.
But these conditions in life
have created its own demands. The need for weapons has
produced a number of Blacksmiths. Researchers and Scholars
have come out from the woodwork to study the latest sciences
and theories, hoping to find something to help their world.
Healers and Clergy, even Entertainers and Thieves have been
in demand to help supply the needs of the people in these
Whatever the case may be,
there has been no lack of jobs across the continents. In
traveling Abyssia, and in selecting a profession, think on
these points before committing to any one trade.
Below you can find a list of
professions currently offered. Do note that some have higher
standards, and you might find difficulty in obtaining it
unless you are willing to work for these. Dragon Riders and
Imperial Guards are two examples, where separate forms and
training will be needed. However, do not limit yourself to
just this list; if you feel you are more suited to another
kind of profession, please feel free to Tell

demand right now that I may offer my skills?
