DCC Modern Occupations

Here’s a handy list of six hundred 20th century occupations you can roll on for time/dimension lost characters.  They’re numbered from 100 to 699 so you can roll a d6 for the first digit and d100 for the remaining digits.  There are no starting weapon or trade goods, since those don’t tie very tightly to modern day professions; e.g. while you could say that an architect is armed with a T-Square and carries blueprints for trade,  that may be a little too silly. Except for a handful of modern occupations like police, soldiers, jewelers and such weapons and trade goods are probably better handled by a separate table of hobbies (e.g. hunting, camping, fishing, coin collecting, musical instrument, SCA, etc.)
