Professions - What Did You Do Before The Apocalypse, Daddy?
Epitaph is a class-less system - nobody forces you into a game role, instead you purchase commands and knacks based on your own preferences, and advance skills according to your own requirements. Professions do not alter that in the slightest - what they do is give you some bonuses based on the role that your character had before the apocalypse hit.
How Do I Pick A Profession?
You'll get a chance to pick a profession as part of a dream event at some point. Don't worry about it - it'll happen eventually provided you powernap every so often.
What Does A Profession Do?
Professions give you several things. One thing they do is give you a set of 'favoured skills'. These skills will TM at a faster rate than your other skills. Some professions also come with commands and knacks, and these will be free for you to purchase. You can get a list of favoured skills, knacks and commands using the 'professions' command. The command by itself will give you a list of all the professions on Epitaph. 'professions details <string>' will let you examine a profession in more detail.
On a more decorative level, professions usually also give you access to titles - these can be both pre-titles *and* post-nominal titles. Pre-titles will be made available to you through the 'title' command when you have achieved the appropriate level in the profession. Post-nominal titles will accumulate automatically based on level.
Your level is a profession is the average of your levels in all the favoured skills. It has no real bearing on the game other than to give you access to the pre-titles and post-nominal titles.
