I need your help thinking up craft titles, which I need for the upcoming craft patch.

Below you'll see the raw list of craft/specialism and mastery titles. I've dunked in some placeholder names but they obviously need to be replaced. ;)

I'm looking for names with a high fantasy content. As a sidenote; Someone with a mastery in carving bone bows is considered the best in its field. Mastery titles should reflect this superiority.

You can ignore any errors/missing crafts. This is a core list that i'll be expanding over time.

I have a few suggestions since most of it is fine:
1. Fisher -> Fisherman?
2. Carapache -> Carapace (spelling issue)
3. Im not sure if you were going for uniformity but for stone and wood i suggest using the original type, even tho it might not sound good for all of them. Stone is chiseling, so Shield chiseler...bit strange but it makes him different from a bone shield carver. Wood - Boot whittler, again accurate but perhaps not very poetic. Mb ppl can make up some appropriate names.
4. For the mastery i might also suggest Carpenter for the Miscellaneous section of wood.
5. Projectile carver in wood -> Fletcher (person who makes arrows)
6. Woodcutting: Logger -> Lumberjack, it’s a classic :) , Forester (this is however also an epic title so perhaps not appropriate)
6. For woodcarving: crossbows - Atilliator: skilled castle worker who made crossbows/ engineer who was in charge of the artillery (medieval)

How are all these titles going to be portrayed? Forgive me if i havent read the craft patch notes recently but it seems to me that ppl with lots of masteries are going to have a heck of a lot of titles.

Cooking, "Cook"
.. Dishes, "Chef"
.. Rolls, "BreadBaker"
.. Cakes, "PastryChef"
.. Frying, "Fry Chef"
.. Mashing, "Irish Gourmet" :twisted:
.. Drinks, "Beveragist"?
.. Ales, "BrewMaster"

Fishing, "Fisher"
.. Sea-Fishing, "Inlandfisher"
.. Lake Fish, "Freshwater master"
.. Fishing, "Oceanfisher"
.. Ocean Fish, "Ocean master"

Salvaging, "Renderer"
.. Skinning, "Flesher"
.. Scales, "Scaler"
.. Fur, "Furrier"

Stonecarving, "Stonemason"

Foraging, "Scavanger"
.. Miscellaneous, "Master Forager"
.. Mushrooms and Molds, "Fungologist" (fungology is actually a word)
.. Plants and Flowers, "Herbalist"
.. Fruits, "Orchard Master"

Tailoring, "Tailoring"
.. Miscellaneous, "Master Tailor"
.. Decorations, "Floral Arranger"

This is all I could think of, I may or may not think of somemore, depends on how much interest I can muster. Maybe I'll find my thesaurus someday and try and find 'older' sounding words for a few things so they seem more fantasy/medievil (however its spellt). Theres gotta be a better word for bone carving than 'carving', I hate seeing the word used twice and three times (bone, wood, stone). Would suggest Carpenter for wood, if things like 'Bracer Carpenter' didnt sounds so....silly.

Maybe laminator for either wood, or bone, just to make them different. Stone could be 'chipping', even though chiseling is more accurate (but again, chiseler sounds silly), and masonry is more for building that armor/weapons making....though it would still be good for the beginner stone worker. Someone will think of something, I'm sure....sorta.

Well, off to kill more time waiting for the MUD to let me connect.

Instead of 'carve' you can also use 'Hew'
