NDC Military Occupations

The majority of roles within the New Dusk Conclave's military are organized by the Cadre they belong to. In some cases, an Occupation may be shared between multiple cadres, although their area of focus tends to vary.

Warrior Occupations

Warriors are the NDC's shield against threats and sword against any who would oppose its goals. They are soldiers, fighter pilots, starship crew, and more. As the largest cadre within the NDC, members of these occupations highly value personal strength in their chosen field of specialty.

Administrator Occupations

Administrators bring order to a chaotic universe - especially chaos that involves people. They are masters of logistics, cutting through (or creating) bureaucratic red tape, and keeping the wheels of the government and military turning. Members of this cadre value efficiency and productivity in all its forms, but especially as it relates to the organization in which they reside.

Technician Occupations

Other cadres might do the fighting, invent new technology, or keep food on the table, but none of it is happens without the Technician Cadre building and maintaining the technology that makes it possible. Technicians are master craftsmen and experts at working with AI. Members of this cadre value technical know-how, practical, hands-on education, and the ability to make anything work, no matter how badly broken it might be.

Technical Specialist Machinery operation and Repair Builds, operates, and maintains complex equipment TT

Laborer Occupations

Members of the Laborer Cadre fill perhaps the most diverse amount of roles within the NDC. Rather than focus on any one particular craft, Laborers tend to be Jacks (or Jills) of all trades, with a wide variety of capabilities. Members of this cadre value skills growth regardless of its source and working in ways that improve the day-to-day lives of their fellows.
