What do you do again…?
On my hunt to flesh out a fantasy city, I need to people it. I need trades and jobs from the past, which will make it sound more authentic. Here are a few I’ve come across in my hunt:
Malkin: A medieval female kitchen worker.
Skep Maker: A maker of beehives.
Puggera: One–usually a child–who treads clay into paste.
Cutty: A wanton and/or short woman.
Lidster: A dyer
Fistic: A bare knuckle fighter.
And the one I’d most like to be: Concher: One who smoothes chocolate.
