Located at Thistle Street and 22nd Avenue. Here, a character may apply for a job, or fill out an application to open up their own business. In the case of the latter, the building will appear after 24 hours in the location that was requested if said location has not already been claimed by another citizen (for example, you couldn't put an auto garage on the same address as the library). The rate of pay for posted jobs is indicated by stars, with one star being a very low-paying job, and five stars indicating a very high-paying job. The more stars there are, the more likely the job will require advanced skills, or indicate a high degree of risk, or simply be a position in high demand. Please read more details about employment here.

Commission-based employment
If your character's employment is a one-time commission or is from bounties listed in the newspaper, you do not need to comment the employment page to claim. It is considered one time and not sustainable payment.

Unrepresented/"Freelance" Employment
If your character is freelancing, they will make less than the standard position offering.

SPECIAL NOTES: If your character is working part-time only, then subtract one star from their pay UNLESS they are * or ** jobs- those stay the same. If the job that you want for your character is not on this list, you may still sign your character up for it. A mod may change the pay grade if they believe the character should be paid differently than your request, but will contact you to let you know if this is the case with the reason and what the new pay grade will be if the job is not listed in the general pay guide.

Bounty Hunters can now gain an extra * payment for each year that they are active up to 5 Stars. The reasoning being that they have established themselves as a well known and effective bounty hunter and can therefore charge more for jobs. If your character has been employed as a Commission Based Bounty Hunter for the appropriate amount of time, please leave a comment on this board about obtaining a pay increase.

1 Your character must have worked for any other business for at least one month in-game before creating their own business. This is equal parts for encouraging interaction between characters instead of everyone having an individual business with no employees and to save the mods work when people pick up characters, make a business, and then never ever do anything with it besides make extra work for clearing it out.

✝ Large businesses can only be created by characters who meet the following experience requirements: 2 months owning a small business + 1 month working a non-ownership job that is non-variable (concurrent is ok), or 3 months (non-concurrent) of any non-variable job.

IMPORTANT: If the business is character owned, to get a job at these businesses, ask if it's OK with the owner by contacting the character's player before commenting.

amberdrake: art from the books (Default)

[personal profile] amberdrake 2016-11-05 08:09 am (UTC)(link)
I'm curious why Amberdrake has been bumped down to the same pay-grade as a waiter, considering he's an accomplished Healer, chirurgeon (non-magical surgeon), and therapist of literally every flavor from grief counseling to physical rehabilitation to intimacy therapy.

And he's doing all of these things out of his office in Attleton.

He's more educated in purely physical medicine than most modern surgeons, and that's just the tip of the iceberg of what he does.

Here's a few relevant excerpts from the first book:

     When the boy finally stopped shouting, Amberdrake stood. His eyes were on a level with the Healer's, but the outrage in them made the boy take an involuntary step backward.

     Amberdrake only smiled—a smile that Gesten and Tamsin would have recognized. Then they would have gleefully begun taking bets on how few words it would take Amberdrake to verbally flay the poor fool.

     "You're new to Urtho's camp, aren't you?" he asked softly, a sentence that had come to represent a subtle insult among Urtho's troops. It implied every pejorative ever invented to describe someone who was hopelessly ignorant, impossibly inexperienced—dry-seed, greenie, wet-behind-the-ears, clod-hopper, milk-fed, dunce, country-cousin—and was generally used to begin a dressing-down of one kind or another.

     The boy had been with the troops long enough to recognize the phrase when he heard it. He flushed and opened his mouth, but Amberdrake cut him off before he could begin.

     "I'll make allowances for a new recruit," he said acidly. "But I suggest that you never address another kestra'chern in the tones you just used with me—not if you want to avoid getting yourself a lecture from your senior Healer and possibly find yourself beaten well enough your own skills wouldn't help you. Did you even bother to ask why 'your' patient was sent to me? For your information, 'your' patient was assigned to me by Senior Healer M'laud for therapeutic massage, and I had to seriously juggle my overcrowded schedule to fit him in. I am doing you a favor; the man needs treatments that you have not been trained to give. If you had tried, you probably would have injured him. If you had bothered to ask your Senior Healer why he had scheduled this patient for other treatments, instead of barging in here to insult and embarrass me, you would have been told exactly that."

     The boy's mouth hung open, and his ears reddened. His eyes were flat and expressionless, he had been taken so much by surprise.

     "Furthermore," Amberdrake continued, warming to his subject, "If you had taken the time to ask your Senior Healer why anyone would send a patient down the hill here to the kestra'chern for treatment, you would have learned that we are considered by all the Senior Healers to be Healers with skills on a par with their own—and that there are some things that you, with all your training, will never be able to supply that a kestra'chern can. Our preliminary training is identical to yours—with the exception that most kestra'chern don't have the luxury of Healing Gifts to rely on. We have to do our job with patience, words, and physical effort. Healing means more than mending the body, young man—it means mending the heart, the mind, and the spirit as well, or the body is useless. That doesn't make us better or worse than you. Just different. Just as there are times when you heal what we cannot, so there are times when we can mend what you cannot. You would do well to learn that, and quickly. Inexperience can be overcome, ignorance be enlightened, but prejudice will destroy you." He allowed his anger to show now, a little. "This war is not forgiving of fools."

     The Healer took another involuntary step back, his eyes wide and blind with confusion.

     Amberdrake nodded, stiffly. "I will see your former patient at the arranged time, and if you wish to overrule it, I will speak with Urtho personally about the matter. The word of Healer M'laud should take precedence over your objections."

     And with that, he turned and left the tent, too angry to wait and see if the boy managed to stammer out an apology, and in no mood to accept it if he did.

     He returned to his tent, knowing that it would be empty while Gesten made his own rounds up on Healer's Hill. That was good; he didn't really want anyone around at the moment. He needed to cool down; to temper his own reaction with reason.


     "M'laud sent me a briefing on her. The reason she is coming to me is that she is under some kind of great inner tension that M'laud has been unable to release, as well as some severe battlefield trauma, and that is making it impossible for her damaged body to heal." Lanz's face lit up, and Amberdrake decided that he must have thought her failure to heal was his fault. "M'laud suspects that she suffered some kind of abuse in her childhood, which is the real root of her problems. Essentially, she is unconsciously punishing herself for being such a bad person that she deserved abuse." He sighed and shook his head. "I know that this makes no sense, but this is something that kestra'chern in particular see and hear all the time. And it is not something you have any chance of dealing with, for I greatly doubt you would ever get her to trust you enough. Not because you are not trustworthy, but simply because of her own problems. You have other responsibilities to take your time, and you are less experienced with this kind of problem than I. I am a stranger, and it is often easier to say terrible things to a stranger than it is to someone who has known you, for the stranger will not prejudge. I will not be anywhere near the front lines, ever, and thus she will know that I have no chance of being cut down by the enemy. I become safe to think of as a friend because she knows she will not lose me."

     Lanz shifted a little in his seat, looking rather doubtful, and Amberdrake decided to overwhelm him, just a little. "Here—I'll prove it to you," he said, in an authoritative voice.

     And he recited the litany of all the formal training he'd had, first with the chirurgeons, then Silver Veil, and finally Lorshallen. It took rather a long time, and before he was finished, Lanz's eyes had glazed over and it looked to Amberdrake as if the poor boy's head was in quite a spin.

     "You see?" he finished. "If you've had half that training, I'd call you a good Healer."

     "I never knew," the youngster said in a daze, "and when Karly came up the Hill from talking to you—"

     "Karly? The redhead?" Amberdrake threw back his head and laughed.

     Shyly, Lanz joined in the laughter. "I heard that one of the other Senior Healers said, 'I hope he has a regular bedmate, because after talking to Amberdrake the way he did, there isn't a kestra'chern in all of the camp who'll take him for any price!' I suppose he was awfully rude to you."

     "Rude?" Amberdrake replied. "That doesn't begin to describe him! Still, Karly needn't worry. We're obligated to take those in need, and I can't imagine anyone more in need of—our services—than he is!"

     Lanz smiled shyly. "And Karly's rather thick," he offered. "After talking to you—you being so kind and all—well, if you take any of my patients, I think I'm going to be awfully grateful, and kind of flattered."

Note that these excerpts are from a book detailing the end of over a decade of war. War that Drake has been an emergency Healer through-out. And that's the first book; I took him from the end of the second.

According to canon, he'd have even more than the five stars he was originally approved with, because he's senior surgeon levels of educated in multiple fields, and is practicing all of them. The only reasons he has his own clinic instead of working at a major hospital is because A) he wants the freedom to do all that a kestra'chern-who-is-a-Healer can do for his patients and B) his Empathic Gift makes it impossible for him to be around that many sick and wounded people for long without taking on their symptoms himself, as he did in canon when he studied at the Predain College of Chirurgeons.
Here's a book sample of him operating purely as a Healer.
