Lumberjack

Lumberjacks supply the wood needed to keep the world running. It's dangerous and grueling work and the pay, while enough to make a living, will never make one rich. The results of their handiwork can be seen in buildings, furniture, bows, shields, and other wooden objects throughout the world.

Career

Qualifications

Lumberjacks must have enough strength and endurance to perform their job tasks. They must also be skilled working with their hands, and perceptive regarding their surroundings.

Perception

Purpose

Loggers cut down trees and prepare them for use for building, furniture making, crafting, or any other use requiring wood.

Social Status

Logging is not a glamorous job, but it is steady work.

History

Logging has remained fairly stable through the years. There has been work in some places to incorporate magic into felling or preparing the trees to improve safety for workers, although in other areas the lumberjacks have banded together to protest these changes due to the subsequent decrease in job openings if implemented.

Operations

Tools

Axes and saws are used to cut down the trees, debranch them, and cut the logs to appropriate lengths. Rigging, skids, and horses or other beasts of burden are used to transport the logs.

Workplace

The forests of the world are the offices of the lumberjack... As are sawmills.

Dangers & Hazards

Logging is dangerous work due to the sharp tools and falling trees. A good lumberjack must be aware of their surroundings and the locations of their coworkers at all times to minimize accidents.
