Becoming a Jack-of-all-Trades[edit]

Jack of all trades, but master of none.

Minimum requirements: STR9,Dex13,INT13,WIS13,CON9,CHA13

Jack-of-all-trades are usually entertainers(actors,singers,storytellers...etc.). They may have chosen a career path at one point in their life (ie. apprenticed to a Mage, joined a religious group, or worked as a squire...etc) but never settled into the position for further advancement. Although they were quick to master early basic skills, their need for variety overwhelmed their need for advancement. The Jack-of-all-trades is more interested in what he/she can learn next as opposed to becoming a master of a chosen profession. Ideally, they latch onto groups of adventurers picking up knowledge from the more skilled members of the party to compensate for their lack of rigorous training. They make excellent adventuring companions and are always eager to learn. Their skills translate well into adventuring but are lacking when forced to choose a life of quite solitude. As such, Jack-of-all-trades are the epitome of the phrase "I'll stopping adventuring when I die".
