I just got the occupations. Obviously some of these are great, some I suggested significant changes to names (you'll see). However, you win some and you lose some.

Almanac soonish (a day or two)

Thanks Michael! Do you know why for the majority of cards the deck identification code is uppercase whereas for some others cards it is lowercase?
For example, page 2:
7A Miller vs 8a Craft Leader
2C Patron vs 4c Hunter

Thanks for posting the pics!

I like how the flavor text for Bosporus Traveler says "By the way, bosporus is Greek for "cattle ford.""

Good to know. What the heck is a cattle ford? Google and Wikipedia seem to have no idea, although I did learn that Jacksonville, Fl used to be known as Cow Ford.

It makes no sense to me why. I'm pretty sure that I suggested consistency (upper case) to avoid visual and continuity confusion.

No problem. Yeah, I'm in Jacksonville or close enough. A cow ford, I believe, is someone to transports/travels cows. I think this one was a literal translation (I don't recall doing the appendix other than suggesting better sounding occupations.)

You're welcome to swing by if you're in the Jacksonville area. I'll gladly let you game. I'll ask two favors though, come with snacks and don't be a serial killer.

Lowercase letters are for the starting occupations. Uppercase letters are for the rest.

A cow-ford, ox-ford (Oxford...), Sheep-ford, etc., is a place on a river that is shallow and safe enough to bring pasture animals across. (Fording a river...)

Hmm. So I guess that would make the "Bosporus Traveler" a person who takes cows across a river? And, based on the card ability, in the process of transporting said cattle, the traveler must come across opportunities to buy spices or silk (but NEVER BOTH).

But I wonder what that means for the "Bosporus Merchant" whose ability has nothing to do with livestock (receive oil when you receive spices).

Because even though "bosporus" means "cattle-ford" literally, the Bosporus is a strait in Turkey that was a hub of Asian-European trade. The Bosporus Traveller is someone who has done some trading at the Bosporus for Asian goods (silk from China; spices from India, etc.) and has returned to the north with exotic goods. (Kind of like "oxford" literally means "ox-ford", but "Oxford traveler we would automatically assume to be an academic.)

That makes sense. I guess I was reading too much into the flavor text that went out of its way to define Bosporus as being Greek for cattle ford.
