I wasn't attacking him OOC'ly, just poking a little fun. But certain castes did have certain behaviors associated to them- Didn't they? This is obvious I thought. You didn't have pirate bandit physicians. (at least that I know of, haven't read the last four books.. could be possible)
I am a big advocate for anyone being able to play anything that they want. I come from a background of GE where roller-skates, cigarettes and bubble gum were prevalent.
Your average Gorean "In Character"would snicker at the man and say. "You sure you want to heal people?" Caste was by birth but exceptions to all rules were made.
Here we go again with Hawt is mean for pointing out something that a Gorean would find silly and out of sorts:
If you look at my poll you will see my question:
"What would a physician normally do?" More than 1/2 the people said "Anything but his job"
Now of course I'm sure some people clicked buttons just for fun.. because it's just fun to click at random.
I knew that Gorean caste lines, though largely following birth, were not inflexible, and that a man who did not care for his caste might be allowed to change caste, if approved by the High Council of his city, an approval usually contingent on his qualifications for the work of another caste and the willingness of the members of the new caste to accept him as a Caste Brother. ~Priest-Kings of Gor, chapter 9, pg 71
I tend to like conformity and realism in my Roleplay environment, You applaud the clown and then give him a pay raise- soon you will have a circus full of nothing but clowns.
