Engineer Order

NEW LA RPG ORDER

Engineer Order

The following is based on a premise from JulianDracos@worldnet.att.net. Your comments are solicited.

Engineer:  Low Middle to Low Upper Society:  The engineer guild typically exists in appreciable numbers only in urban areas.  Although individual persons belonging to the order can be found in virtually any place, lodges are located in large towns and cities only. The three main area Engineers can be found are in large urban areas, ports, and military installations including castles and strongholds.

Engineer Order persons are typically recognized by the Mage, Mariner, Noble, and Soldier Orders.  Although there is no real benefit an engineer will typically belong to one of three groups: 1) Mechanical engineers, the largest group, are those that work on machines and devices of that nature, including siege engines. Such persons have Metallurgy Ability  2) Civil engineers, the second largest group, that plan and oversee the construction of such things as communities, buildings, roads and streets, bridges, aqueducts, sewers, and of course castles and military fortifications. Such persons have Learning Ability. (In dwarf and gnome communities especially, civil engineers work on mining projects.)  3) Marine engineers that design port facilities and waterborne vessels.  Such persons have Waterfaring Ability.

Outside of the Royal engineers that work for monarchs, most of the guilds will be trade ones.

The required abilities are: Mechanics, Pantology, Evaluation, Physique.
