New Vocation - Homesteader (just an idea)
I think it would be pretty cool to see a new crafting vocation called – Homesteader. It would be similar to Yeoman. You would still have the farmer and cook fields but a new craft to be added would be Animal Husbandry.
With Animal Husbandry you would be able to raise different sorts of animals (chickens, cattle, and horses). The horses would be the main draw for this craft, being able to raise and sell horses for use, and the ability to breed new horses. Another benefit of this would being able to butcher the animals for use in cooking recipes.
An upgrade to the farmer would be that you could then grow the food required by the animals you raise, which would increase their morale over time.
The cook would then be able to cook food (chicken pot pie etc.).
Tailors would be able to craft saddles, blankets, and other cosmetics for the horses; while metalsmiths would be able to craft horseshoes which would be used to increase the speed of the horse. These could be anywhere from basic horseshoes which only give temporary speed buffs or higher level crafted horseshoes which would permanently increase the speed of the horse.
I would love to see something added along these lines. I am new here, so I don't know what all has been discussed in the past or is in the works for the future. Anyone else think an upgrade like this would be well worth it?
