    Question Would You Be Warrior, Priest or Farmer?

    Warrior, Priest or Farmer ?

    I would be a farmer, because you get to have your own animals, get your own supply of food, and is a relatively easy going and rewarding profession.

    The other 2 are really superfluous..

    As a Germanic tribesman I guess I would be a bit of all three rolled into one. Cultivate my patch, shield the kindred with linden lance when need arose and be one with the nature of my ancestor Gods.
    A people which takes no pride in the noble achievements of remote ancestors
    will never achieve anything worthy to be remembered with pride by remote descendents.

    In general, most people would like to think that they would be numbered amongst the warrior aristocracy were the tripartite IE system still in place, even yours truly (pauses to do a bicep pose) however I have to be honest with myself, I can clearly see myself as a farmer/poet or Yeoman, with a yeoman's temper too (whether of rufous or UP derivation I don't know, though probably both. Think "Thor".)
    --
    It is part of the illusion of the Western Liberal way IMO, claiming everyone is equal, yet having to fill the empty ranks with innumerable 3rd world immigrants to do the jobs that all the "equal" people don't want to do anymore.

    Be a Yeoman, be proud!

    I would have to opt for the farmer class myself--coming from an agrarian, land-owning background as I do and continuing in this tradition myself.

    However, the Yeomen would often have to drop their ploughs and hoes and instead, take up the sword or musket. :wiking

    Although I love to till soil and plant anything I can get my hands on, I have to be honest with myself. In the real, tangible world, I can be hostile at times, short tempered, and I have a love of weapons and own many of them. I chose warrior, because it is something I have always dreamed about. I can hear swords clashing, horses galloping, oars rowing and bodies falling to the earth, spilling blood to saturate the crust in my head right now as I type this. When I was not fighting, or in times, peace, I would definitely be a farmer.

    I would be a farmer as well. I have a lot of respect for small family owned and operated farms. The small family farmers tend to be good examples of hard-working, loving, nature-respecting individuals. Not to mention the seeds of their work ultimately become some of the best tasting, hormone-free products of all. My paternal ancestors have farming roots in Oklahoma and Arkansas. I love to go through old scrapbooks and see pictures of the lands of their eras.

    You're a Yeoman too IMHO ! You're in touch with the Earth, the realities of Blood, Earth and Family resound strongly with you, yet you have have the battle-lust dancing in your blood (like me). Yeomen were Fighting Farmers with subtle minds, that is the way I see it, the bones & lifeforce of the Northern Folk.

    So far, according to the poll results as they now stand, we have four farmers, two priests and one warrior.

    Seems like we'll have plenty to eat, a fair share of spiritual guidance but I fear we are ripe for being attacked. Can you fend them off yourself, Folkish?

    I haven't the slightest doubt in my mind, friend. Fear is on my side.
