Shepherd  F

Historical background

Shepherds dwell among the depths of the countryside on end rarely seeing another soul. The shepherd's job is to watch the sheep in the fields while they feed and move around and handle any threats that may come to them, then at the days end, return them all to thier pens. The Shepherd needs to be good at mathematics as counting sheep is part and parcel of the role. However, there is no sleeping on the job as the protection of the flock requires a sharp eye and alertness. The shepherds are required to strong as an ox to carry the hurdles needed to pen the sheep, and fairly dextrous as the plucking of poo winnets from around the sheep's genitals can be particularly intricate work.

How does it work?

Use your Job Log to breed up to #Rank sheep. You can shear sheep after cooldown time. A standard roll determines if you produce anything. Alternatively you can ask a Butcher to deal with your sheep.

You can only breed sheep in temperate and cold rural areas.

Use your Job Log on the ground when you reached your maximum amount of spawns (ie: as many as you have ranks in this job) to remove all the animals you previously spawned. Thia can be handy when you lose one or more after moving between areas.
