King Henry V often enjoyed taking captured Knights of elite

Ifthe Jester was successful at entertaining his troops and guests, he would be hauled back to the dungeons after his performance to live to do it again another day. If the Jester did not provide gleeful entertainment he was often tortured or killed.

Jesters lived precariously and often their success depended
solely on the mood of their audience. They did not earn high wages but were often allowed a few benefits and luxuries of life inside a castle.

HERBALIST

A Herbalist was usually a member of a religious order such
as a monk or friar. His main duties included the planting and maintaining of medicinal plants, roots and herbs. Different from a Gardener in that he didn't maintain large estates or actively participate in forming defensive ditches,
the Herbalist enveloped himself in the deep studies of medicine.
Many herbs have natural healing agents and as medicine was
still in its early stages, the Medieval Herbalist was a much respected person. Normally the church would provide a plot or tract of land that was cultivated by either religious personnel or by peasants who received minor wages. The Herbalist would then plant and maintain his select crops in the area.A lot of the plants needed to undergo treatments such as boiling, drying, steeping or steaming to bring out their healing properties and some needed to be combined with others to find the desired results. TheHerbalist therefore had an elaborate and involved study and needed thecomponents of a laboratory to do his work successfully.Those who belonged to religious orders usually did not stand to make high wages as they were bound by laws of poverty. However a layman who acted as his own Herbalist could sell his healing knowledge and services for extremely high prices.

Librarian

In charge of keepig track of the books and keeping the library clean.


Judge

A public official appointed to decide cases in a court of law.

Clerk

A clerk was employed to keep accounts for the judge.



Inkeeper

Oneof the most lucrative and profitable occupations was that of the
Medieval Innkeeper, but only if all conditions were prime and if certain
circumstances were maintained.

Anyone who could afford the structure and property could embrace
the free enterprise of having an Inn, however he or she was subject to
heavy taxes and levies by the local lords of the area.

Owning an Inn carried a lot of responsibility. Besides the
bedrooms the Inn also had other internal features such as a dining rooms
and often a tavern or alehouse. Usually the fare for a room included
meals as well. The alehouse was sometimes leased by a secondary business
person and often a separate enterprise from the Inn.

Cleaning, maintaining and providing quality goods and services
were the primary requirements of an Innkeeper. One also had to be good
with mathematics and money and even have the presence of mind to
calculate bookings and the ordering of supplies and inventory. Most
times an Innkeeper hired a small staff of armed security guards. It was
not uncommon for a group of fighters to arrive at an Inn shortly after
their latest campaign. Rowdy and hoping to spend the spoils of war, the
atmosphere inside most Inns and alehouses could be bawdy and even at
times violent.

At the doorway to an Inn you could find at least one armed guard
posted. There was usually a minimal entry fee to pass through the door,
just a courtesy to help pay for any damages that may arise while inside.
The guard at the door would take a brass or copper coin from the
entrant and bounce it on a wet piece of wood. If the coin bounced once
it was clear that the coin was genuine and the person was allowed to
enter. Many times people would forge their own coins out of lead or
cheaper metals and since Europe saw a wide variety of foreign money, it
was often difficult to prove the authenticity of a coin. The practice of
bouncing the coin off of a wet piece of wood is what eventually led to
modern day doormen at bars and pubs being called "Bouncers".

Many times nobles and elite personnel were exempt from paying any
fees at an Inn or hostel. Though this was resented by most Innkeepers,
they did receive fair protection in return. If the business was
maintained properly, an Innkeeper could earn high profits.

Barman/barmaid

Same as a waiter/waitress


FORTUNE-TELLER

Fortune-tellerswere often looked upon with disapproval from the ruling classes but their services were highly in demand. The Medieval Ages were full of superstition and very real belief in supernatural forces and powers. Most things that could not be explained by science or technology was
thought to be the direct influences of these powers at work.

The common people were normally quite stressed economically and
therefore they viewed the Fortune-teller as a potential advantage to
overcoming future difficulties. If their future could be revealed they
believed they could take steps to improve upon it.

Most Fortune-tellers were common rogues and tricksters who used a
variety of simple illusions to create dramatic effects. Though they
possessed no real skill at all for devining the future, they would be
careful to use basic events and information to project a scenario that
was generic enough to fit into anyone's situation. Once embellished with
mild promises of prosperity it seemed a true magical experience had
taken place. Often though the Fortune-teller's success was based on how
much the person getting the reading wanted to believe.

Some Fortune-tellers did use lunar and celestial patterns to
predict probable and basic outcomes in terms of weather. These natural
signs could foretell famine or draught or even bad storms. If a
Fortune-teller had success in predicting these events, his or her
credibility was greatly enhanced.

A few kings and monarchs did enlist the services of seers and
Fortune-tellers to predict the future of their kingdoms and even the
outcome of battles. Though there was a given ratio of success and
failure based on mathematical probability, the fortune-tellers with luck
and agility managed to earn positions of respect and wealth in some
courts.

However, most were treated as witches or dark practitioners. And
in some cases when their foretold events did not ring true, they were
hunted down and killed


[size=25]INTERPRETER

earned excellent wages despite whom they worked for. There was a
scarcity of people versed in more than one language and as a result,
Interpreters were highly sought after by kings and monarchs. Not only
did an Interpreter serve to reveal information about captured foreign
troops, but also he could compose letters, laws and doctrines that
helped with the subjugation of foreign territories.

Also it was necessary throughout the Medieval Ages to hold
meetings, conversations and diplomatic gatherings with nobles and ruling
members of many foreign countries. Therefore the Interpreter held an
elite position and was often given rank, land and titles in exchange for
his or her valuable services




JEWELER


Jewelers
held great positions of status within Medieval communities and towns. As foreign wars took troops into exotic lands they often returned with precious stones and minerals. Not knowing the value of them, it was up to the Jeweler to determine their worth.

Diamonds, emeralds, rubies and sapphires were the most common stones found during the Medieval Ages. Gold, silver and bronze were alsoheld in high regard. The Jeweler not only held the knowledge of assessing values on these items but he was also skilled in setting the stones into rings, pendants, medallions, bracelets and amulets. The Jeweler also knew how to set the items into sword hilts and other placements that exhibited the status and wealth of their holders.

Jewelers were respected but there were many who knew the advantages of being less than honest. Stones with minimum value such as quartz, zarconia and even fools gold were not easily distinguished by the untrained eye of the public. Therefore it was common for a Jeweler
to accept a valuable diamond with the promise of setting it into a ring or pendant for its owner. Simply, he would polish a quartz or zarconia of similar size and dupe the owner by giving him the worthless item. The Jeweler could then sell the original and more valuable stone and reap a quick and high profit.

LEATHER WORKER

Leather workers
were common laborers but their skills were in high demand. The crafting
of sword belts, clothing, saddles and even leather armor were necessary
items for Medieval life.

Though some preferred the protection and skill that guilds provided, many were able to learn the basics of the trade on their own.The tanning process was relatively simple and though most commoners knew how to do this, the products they made on their own didn't have the durability of those made by Leatherworkers.In order to be preserved, leather had to be treated by a series ofsteps. Tanning, hiding and even treating the material with oils and softeners were necessary to make it last longer and worth the money
charged.

Leatherworkers earned a modest and sometimes decent living depending on the quality of their skills.


STORYTELLER



Storytelling

was an integral part of Medieval life. As most people lacked the ability to read and write, history, legends and folklore were passed along from generation to generation through skilled Storytellers.

No special abilities were acquired to hold this position except for a decent memory. However, the more industrious Storytellers also knew how to read so that they could widen their collection of stories. Sadly, a great number of Storytellers often embellished facts and added untrue elements to make their stories more exciting and incredible. While this provided entertainment for their audiences,historical facts often became distorted.On average, Storytellers did not usually earn wages for their services unless they were hired to perform at social gatherings. A few though did manage to earn modest livings at the craft by entertaining
kings and monarchs.
