snaps fingers I got it! A magical hero working in corporate office in a modern fantasy-sque story. He is slaying the “dragons” or massive paperwork that he calls dragons all while working his way up the ladder.
His boss is a jerk that thinks he’s the king of the office. Take The Office and make it fantasy with fantastical creatures!
You can do it, @JohnnyTuturro!
Got a little happier than I wanted! LOL!
Professions are interesting to think about. I realize that I haven’t spent much time coming up with cool names for them.
In the TriRealm Trilogy I have a magitech inventor and a magical contraband seller (not sure what name to give to this “profession”). And there’s also a cop and a private eye - not fantasy specific.
And a priest of an angel-worshipping cult.
In the 3rd book, MC’s father is in a demon lounge and I’m still not sure what his role is there. Does he own it? Does he run it? Is he just a patron? Or maybe he uses it to meet with his clients and hang out?
It’s kinda funny because MC assumes that his father is a $3x worker but he’s actually only an elixiring master. Elixirer? That’s hard to say.
There’s a mystic in this story (like a shaman).
And there are Sages. Their role is rather mysterious. They’re sort of like a convent but also the authority.
Oooh, yes and there’s also the scroll keeper. That’s like a librarian/curator/historian.
Does a personal assistant count?
I guess it’s not a very office-like job.
There is a chapter in a factory where the workers assemble mass produced magitech and then there’s a scene that resembles a corporate meeting.
I guess I didn’t think of these as fantasy jobs.
It’s another job I never really have saw, so it’s unique.
If it takes place in a fantasy story and setting, it counts.
That would honestly go down very well tbh lol. A low-stakes comedy, with lots of laughs. And some drama. I can see it. He hates his job, and he has a workmate that he hates but his workmate really looks up to him.
