Education

(i.e., things your character is offering to teach)

  • Marie-Ange Colbert - cooking, languages (French, Italian)
  • Sunny Nwazue - cooking, English literature, languages (Igbo, Nigerian Pidgin)
  • Percy de Rolo - tinkering, blacksmithing, engineering, languages (Celestial, Elven) [Note: he will not teach you how to use a gun.]
  • Caroline Forbes - drama (god help you.)
  • Kitty Pryde - physics, engineering, mathematics, dance, martial arts, languages (Japanese, Russian, and the royal and standard languages of the alien Shi'ar and Skrull, and has moderate expertise in Gaelic, Hebrew, and German)
  • Lillith Daturai - languages (common, infernal, Sylvan), magic (illusion, conjuration, transfiguration, abjuration)
  • Regina Mills - politics, governance, magic, gardening [Note: she will not volunteer]
  • Illyana Rasputin - magic(k) of all sorts EXCEPT life/healing, demonic & arcane languages, library sciences. [Note: She will probably be scary and unpleasant at times, but a very effective teacher.]
  • River Song - History, Archeology/Anthropology, Earth Sciences, Sex Ed (because it makes me laugh)


Open offer: If you ever want your character to have a job they are qualified but would not volunteer for, Caroline is ALWAYS an approved scapegoat. Drop Sil a line to let her know it's happened but no need to ask permission to abuse Caroline in that way.

Generating Ideas

While you can coast for awhile, eventually, every PC needs to find some way of contributing to the hotel's functioning. At some point, it is expected that a PC will establish and run a job board. Some job possibilities include:

  • bartending
  • wait service
  • room service
  • cooking
  • cleaning
  • horse care
  • nursing
  • hunting
  • security
  • maintenance
  • development
  • teaching
  • lifeguarding (pools)
  • clerks
  • librarian
  • tech wizard
  • healer
  • welcoming committee
  • reporter
  • newspaper editor
  • spa therapist
  • seamstress

But there are as many more job possibilities as there are PCs. Be creative, and have fun.
