Thanks for all the input. For now, I plan to have an introductory 4 secondary professions: Weapon Upgrader (really need to think of a better name), Chef, Artist, and Jeweler.
The Weapon Upgrader will basically work just like the current 4 people do. The fact that this is the only really "powerful" secondary profession will be limited by its small scope... I think I will not add any more upgrades than are currently in the game, at least until my fears that everybody will pick this 2nd profession prove to be false.
The Chef will be able to buy ingredients and then combine them in recipes. For instance, a cake may require Sugar, Grain, and Eggs. An omelette will require Eggs, Cheese, and Meat. Etc Etc Etc. You will make food by using a "recipe" item, which will check to make sure you have the right items, and then create the food item from it.
The Artist will combine skills in poetry, music, and visual arts. The music part will consist of playing instruments, like are currently in the game. The rest of the functions for poetry and visual arts will be finalized later.
The Jeweler will work somewhat like the chef, combining different jewels and metals to make all kinds of ornaments and perhaps other items as well.
Right now the plan is for all this to be done sometime in about June. I will not have time to work on it heavily until May/June because of finals, etc. Secondary professions will not be put in until four secondary professions are ready to roll out. Out of necessity, people who already have skills in playing instruments, or upgrading weapons, etc will have those abilities reset, and they will have to earn those skills back just like everybody else.
Suggestions for more secondary professions can still be made in the suggestions forum. Because secondary professions are made to help roleplaying, they do not need balancing like the normal professions, so it will be much easier to continue adding them as programming time allows.
