The new Captain Pike show should introduce us to TOS Cardarasn’s and Bajorans, before the Cardassian Occupation of Bajor. Discovery made it canon Captain Pike received the Legate’s crest. In DS9 "Destiny" Dax states that Tobin meet an exiled Cardassian poet on Vulcan, in the 22nd century. Cardassian beer shows up on Earth in the Kelvin timeline. Discovery also made is canon Captain Pike received the Cardassian Proficient Service Medallion, Gul Darhe'el received the Proficient Service Medallion in the DS9 episode Duet. An episode about the Cardassians before the military takeover, when their society is still democratic, but on the verge of collapse into authoritarianism, would be really interesting.
Masamune (正宗) is widely considered to be Japan’s greatest swordsmith. No exact dates from his life are known, but he likely made most of his swords between 1288 and 1328. Despite the wide variety of weapons he created, only katana (long, single-edged) and tantō (short sword or dagger) are known to survive today. Among his best-known creations—thought by many to be the finest Japanese sword ever made—was the Honjō Masamune (note: no known images as far as I can tell). Deriving its name from the first prominent general who owned it, about 300 years after its creation, it became an important status symbol and was often gifted to those of higher ranks. By 1939, after changing hands many times, it had been declared a Japanese National Treasure and was owned by the Tokugawa shogunate, a family who had ruled Japan from 1600 to 1868.
Throughout the world wars, the Japanese government attempted to boost recruitment with propaganda eliciting the (often exaggerated) ideals of Japan’s past, emphasizing honor and tradition. Every officer, sergeant, and corporal wore swords, and as many as two million were worn by the Japanese military by the end of WWII. With Japan’s surrender, however, American General Douglas MacArthur demanded that all Japanese soldiers lay down their arms. MacArthur’s plan was “total demilitarization and disarmament” and that meant the swords had to go, more because of what they symbolized than for any threat. The Americans had no knowledge of what many of the swords—treasured heirlooms and works of art—really meant. But none were exempt, including the Tokugawa family and the Honjō Masamune.
Though some attempted to deceive MacArthur, the Tokugawas did not, believing it was their responsibility to set an example. In late 1945, Tokugawa Iemasa, the last known owner of the Honjō Masamune, brought the sword—along with 14 others—to a Mejiro Police station. In January of the next year, the police station turned the sword over to a man who said his name was Sergeant Coldy Bimore of the Foreign Liquidations Commission (FLC) of AFWESPAC (Armed Forces, Western Pacific). The sword was never seen again.
The most obvious lead is Coldy Bimore himself. Unfortunately, he doesn’t seem to... keep reading on reddit ➡
I've done some experimenting with two very similar profiles on a couple dating sites. When I list my profession, I match with A LOT more women- especially younger ones. I'm torn, more matches means a higher likelihood of connecting with someone. However, I'm not sure if I like that my (presumed) income is my most desirable trait. I've had several discussions with colleagues and friends about this, most feel it is no different than a lady with a great body showing it off with flattering pictures.
How important is knowing what someone does for a living in determining your interest in him/her?
Edit. I was trying to avoid being overly braggy in my post. It actually reads a lot blowhardy than i intended. I’m an ophthalmologist
I'm happy again because my YouTube channel grew again and now I have 6 subscribers!
I even made myself a channel banner and a profile picture to match! :)
My dream is to have 66. I wonder if I can make it that far.
But anyway, I like this subreddit so that's why I wanna brag here that I'm doing pretty good.
But you don't need to think about it much, just answer a question to enter, like always:
If you had to change your name to a pet name, what would it be and why?
That's the question. Good luck, friends.

A great way to add depth to your characters is to make their function more than their mechanics. Think about a character describing themselves as a certain class. Now think about that again, but consider how weird that would actually be. Sure, you are playing a fighter, but the players themselves likely already know that. Tell them and their characters what it is you do. Are you a knight? A mercenary? War veteran? What you do is way more important than what you can do in most cases. This is more or less true for different classes, for example a cleric is likely going to be called a priest or other religious title, so cleric makes sense, but the title "rogue" means nothing other than you break some form of rules. Thief, spy, or pirate makes more sense in that case. You can even get more specific. I have a druid character who has never introduced herself as such, instead referring to herself as a taxonomist and high stakes birdwatcher. Just a thing to keep in mind.
tl;dr: what your character does with their skills is more important to the story than what their skills are.
It is a good idea to get user contributed information on various career paths, not sure if wiki or one megathread per career would be a good idea.
Let's begin. Please post in comments about Career/Occupation that you want to know the path to.
