AKA: I’ll give you ten jobs from fantasy books ranging from super easy to very obscure, and answers with the most correct answers will get a shout out!
As always, this great tag was originally created by The Broke and the Bookish but is now hosted over at That Artsy Reader Girl. Today’s prompt is about fictional jobs that you’d want… but I couldn’t think of 10 that attracted me. I’m thinking about fantasy jobs (because otherwise it would pretty much be a job application) but no I don’t want to work as a guard. Or with dragons – and then I’ve covered most fantasy jobs! So, here are 10 jobs from fantasy books… without the names of the books. There are only 8 books (ie two books have more than one job from them) so see how many you know. Depending on the success rate, either first few people to get all 8 or the people with the most correct will get a shoutout when I post the answers tomorrow. Would you want to do any of these jobs? Let me know in the comments!
If you don’t get this one, you should probably give up now. This is definitely the job I’d want to do out of all of these!
Quite literally one of two jobs in this world – if you’re not particularly skilled at sports then you’d be off to the Ministry Of Magic. (I’ve said too much haven’t I…)
I think these were the coolest powers that you could have in this series. No pushing around boats for me, I’d be making myself fly.
7. The Witchfinder General
There’s probably multiple books with witch hunters in them, but if you joined this witchfinder then you would become… one of two. But the General was one of my favourite characters in this book, very funny!
Ahh these fighters are fascinating. They’re a weird mix between superstition and doctrination and I’m so glad that the author decided to go into more detail on their mindset in the third series . It’s hard to go into a full rant without name dropping the book or the author, but I can’t wait for the sequel to drop at the end of this month (there’s a clue…).
5. Satanic Space Bone Nun
Not sure what the official name for these characters are, but I thought ‘bone nuns’ was pretty accurate! If you follow my blog, you’ll know that I talk about this series quite a bit… for another clue, the third book comes out in 2022. Any guesses?
4. One of the four horsemen of the apocalypse
- Clue 1: In this book, they have motorbikes
- Clue 2: No, it’s not the Bible
3. Padishah Emperor Duke of House Atreides
Very high chance of being murdered, but the food always sounded nice!
2. President of the Algolian Chapter of the Galactic Rotary Club
This is some deep nerd knowledge!
AND NUMBER ONE GOES TO
1. Head of the General Oblation Board
Arg this woman was evil (there’s a clue!).
I don’t know if this was too random or impossibly hard or too easy, but thanks for having a go! Leave your guesses in the comments and happy TTT!
