Below is a huge list of 459 jobs, careers, professions, trades, etc from throughout history which can be used for Player’s Characters, or Non-Player Characters (NPCs) when creating them for your Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, or any RPG Fantasy Setting, or Randomly Generated City or Town. Some are “old timey” jobs which don’t exist anymore, and some still exist today. Regardless, very few people your world are “adventurers” and most have a profession on the list below. Give each of your Randomly Generated NPCs a real Craft or Trade to make them more realistic. If there is a job you don’t see listed, please submit it in the comments and it will get added!

When I’m not playing Dungeons & Dragons / Pathfinder I really love the board game Settlers of Catan. My children have seen me play an online version of the game and wanted to play as well. Settlers isn’t the simplest game to learn, so I made an easier to learn version for them to play, which can also be printed on an 8.5×11 piece of paper instead of buying the full game!
Personally, I dislike using “modern” words in Fantasy Role Playing games like D&D and Pathfinder. It ruins the verisimilitude of the game to hear a fighter say, “That’s so cool!” in character. It feels more immersive to use “period correct” terms from antiquity. Here are some old words from history which can help your game sound less modern and more High Fantasy! Give us some suggestions in the comments.
