“What do you want to be when you grow up?”
Standard question for all children of the Universe. “When you grow up”. Well, I am grown-up and I still don’t know what I want to be. Some are professional hunters, miners or crafters. Some own shops, which I assume makes them merchants. Then there are merchants without shops buying and selling goods for profit. Merchants… or Re-sellers if you will. Re-sellers are somewhat looked down upon even though they do nothing illegal. They just use the market to their advantage. Oh… and then we have pirates – people who go into space to chase and destroy other space crafts to take their cargo. Healers – they usually only charge for decay.
In the beginning I had this unexplained urge to become a tailor. I wanted to work with animal hides to make textures, and even apply textures to items. Now I’m unsure. So far I’ve been focused on selling the loot I find while hunting for profit. I became a pack-rat. But Pack-rat is not a profession. Since I collect and sell resources I guess I could call myself a Supplier for now. And Hunter.
I was pondering becoming a supplier of goods from other planets, but then I would need to learn how to fly in space – and also risk my cargo to pirates. That thought is so unappealing it hurts! At least the part about losing cargo. I wouldn’t mind being a pilot.
We’ll see, I guess. I have ideas but will keep them to myself for now.
