Profession Tables for MERP

Profession Descriptions
The basic and expanded professions listed above have already been described in ICEs MERP editions 1 and 2. The culture specific professions have been described in MERP and he Northern Waste, campaign module. Further information on the mentioned professions can be found in either MERP editions 1 and 2 or Northern Waste. Advance Professions tend to specialize in a particular skill. Most are actually a subclass of Basic Professions. Due to the professions concentration in a particular skill, certain skills or armor restrictions apply. Some Advance Professions have no place in Middle-Earth; but can be used in other settings such as Shadow World. This section provides descriptions of other professions that were found in other MERP modules and websites. Trackers are equivalent to Rangers and have Constitution as a Prime Stat. They do not have access to Ranger spell lists, possessing only the magic-using abilities of Warriors. Like Rangers, they excel in outdoors skills. Shamans are primitive Animists and should be taken by primitive or barbarian cultures/races as a substitution for Animists. For evil cultures or races such as Orcs and Half Trolls, Shaman represents the only spell-casting profession. In this case, they may learn the base spell lists of Evil Mage, Evil Cleric or Sorcerer spell lists. This section provides descriptions of Advance Professions that are found widely on the net. Archers are skilled with bows. They wear only leather armor and carry no shields. They are a subclass of Scout but concentrate their skills in archery and subterfuge. It is very difficult for archers to use spells or magic items. Knights are trained in the arts of combat and jousting. Their primary areas of development are weapon skills, riding, and body development. Knights are members of the nobility. Knights can use any weapon and wear any armor but favor chain or plate armor and two-handed weapons. They are a subclass of Warrior. Assassins are trained in maneuvering, observation, ambush and to a limited extent, combat. Their primary area of focus is ambush but they develop skills with weapons and subterfuge. Assassins are a subclass of Scout with concentrated skills in dispatching an enemy silently. They may only wear leather and cannot carry shields. Hunters are trained in outdoors and stalk/hide skills. Their primary area of development are general skills, perception, stalk/hide and to a lesser extent weapon skills. It is moderately difficult for Hunters to learn spells. They are a subclass of Ranger. They wear either leather armor or none at all. Slayers main focus is the art of combat and fighting. It is difficult for Slayers to learn anything else and show little interest in such pursuits. They wear no armor and are of evil depositions. They are a subclass of Warrior. Paladins are for the most part knights devoted to a religious cause. They are trained in the arts of battle and general skills. They can develop respectable general skills and can learn their own base spell lists and Open Channeling spells. Paladins are subject to Channeling armor restrictions when casting spells. Paladins are not a subclass of any Profession. Alchemists are trained in creating magical items whether they are scrolls, runes, swords or gems. Their

primary area of development is crafts and can learn their own base spell lists. They can also develop some skill with weapons. Alchemist is not recommended for PC use. However, PC can use Rune Smiths.

Spirit Namers of the Lossoth


Spirit Namers possess the gift of mediating between their people (the Lossoth) and the Spirit World. They are trained in summoning, charming, and repulsing spirits. All Spirit Namers are women. Their primary area of development is learning spells, but they are capable of development in any of the categories of skills and can learn their own Spirit Namer spells and open Channeling spells. It is very difficult for Spirit Namers to learn to use weapons and armor. They use Presence as their Prime Stat and may not wear any metal armor, helm, or greaves when casting spells.

Night-Warders of the Easterlings


Night-Warders possess the gift of healing and destruction. They are torn with nihilistic rage between the two magical arts. For this reason, Night-Warders find it hard to cast non-destructive/non-aggressive spells. The fumble range for these types of spells suffers from 01-05UM. Furthermore, healing spells incorporate the raging turmoil of the night-warder subjecting their patients to a momentary rage and uncontrollable bouts of violence. This effect on patients is called Sakaji. Patients must roll on the Sakaji table (see below) to determine its effort on them. A night-warders primary area of development is learning spells and can learn their own Night-Warder spells and Open Essence and Channeling spells. It is very difficult for Night-Warders to learn to use weapons and armor. They use Intelligence as their Prime Stat and may not wear any metal armor, helm, or greaves when casting spells. For additional information on Night-Warder read, The Healers of the Healer by Mark Feil. Development points table for the Night-Warder of the Easterlings

Sakaji Madness Whenever a Night-warder heals, their dark magic creeps into the patient receiving the healing. This results in the patient having bouts of uncontrollable rage and violence. Every time a Night-warder works healing magic, the patient must make an RR vs 8th level Essence. Any failures are resolved in the below table. Success by 0-20 or Failure by 1-20 Failure by 21-50 Failure by 51-100 Failure by 101 + Sakaji Table The patient feels a building hatred against all whom he believes to have wronged him. This hatred fades after the spell is completed, but the memory of it remains (long term effects at GMs discretion). The patient flies into uncontrollable rage at everyone around him. If unrestrained, he vents his warth upon a random target, be it tree, river, flower or priest (greater chance for attacking animals and humans than nonanimate objects). During this fit, the patients Strength bonus is increased by 50%. As above, but for the first 3 rounds the patients Strength is quadrupled and he does twice the damage. The patient feels a burning hatred for everything around him, but retains his cunning. He may wait until the healing is complete before attempting to slay everything around him. All destructive actions are at +30.
