While they are a loathed kind of men and women, they also dress many of us.Skin Carvers are the name of a quite unliked profession amongst even the peasantry. They are also known as tanners and create the skins and leathers all around Nimenra. The demand for skins for various goods, like clothes, water pouches and even armour makes them still a necessary evil for many cities to keep. In recent decades, however, new ways of making the process of "Carving" a quicker process and also less polluting have relieved some stresses and evils from outside forces on the profession.— Everam, Teller of Nimenra
The Status of the CarversMany that work as Carvers do that within the family, from father to son, as many don't like the idea of having to deal with excrements and the strong stench that arises from the process of carving. That is why a strong resistance against strong odours, strong hands and arms for the removal and stretching process are essential for the job. The first quality is hard to find even amongst the children of Carvers, it is a learning experience most of the time. The payment of a Carver is more interesting, even as a highly demanded job, due to many other professions working with their products, the payment is less modest. A skin from deer prepared over a year might cost twelve silver or a day's food, in the end. Whatmore is that most Carvers like all tanners face the prejudice of spreading disease, odours and bad waste in towns and cities. This has forced overtime the Carver and tanner districts to the edges of towns and sometimes even outside the walls. Many tanner districts are considered the poorest of the poor despite being on the same level as some other artisans like bakers and butchers in prosperity. This can lead to like the situation in Meadern on the border of Nilaminra and the Kingdom of Ravero where the tanners district survived mostly intact after the Keepmed Riots compared to the rest of the town.
