List Of Academic And Scientific Professions
rating: 0+x

Basic Information

This is a very incomplete list. Please feel free to expand it. Also, note that this list includes several professions that don't seem terribly "scientific" from a modern perspective. Tailor to the needs of your campaign and setting. But at least it's a starting point.

Note: Most of the links below are currently dead. Links in Red do not have pages yet, and clicking on them will make a new empty page. Links in Blue go to an actual existing page, most of which have useful material for gaming. If you've got a few minutes and some knowledge on the topic, you could help ArcanaWiki out by turning some of those dead red links into actual pages.


1. Wikipedia's list of Academic disciplines - features a lot more detail and subdivision than we probably need for arcanawiki, so I really dumbed it down for the list on this page

Game and Story Use

  • These are especially good for Call of Cthulhu characters. Lovecraft's protagonists where usually academics, rather than adventurers.
  • Mad Scientist types can really benefit from an unusual discipline or specialty to make them stand out from the old cliche a little more.
