Are you writing speculative fiction, particularly the fantasy genre? In this post, we look at 24 jobs for fantasy characters.

Fantasy Worlds

If magic were real, things would be different, but also they would be the same. People would still have jobs.

Men would still hate making an appointment with the cleric to get that thing looked at; people would still need their golems serviced every six months; kids would still need to go to the academy to learn their spells.

Life would have all the normal rhythms of the real world, but the substance would be different. For example, perhaps everyone would gather around the crystal ball to watch their favourite plays at night. Maybe the stage director uses CGI (celestially generated incantation) effects to spice up the performance.

But, there would still be industries and companies. They may be call guilds and associations, but people would continue to be people regardless of the setting.

I’ve created an infographic with a fun list of jobs that can only exist in fantasy worlds.
