This is an idea I was pondering which concerns a new settler mechanic. As it is we get passing traders, caravans, and settlers joining our group some of them with various professions.
So what if a person with Amnesia stumbled upon your little outpost in the world? These people would ask you to let them stay and they will work until they remember… suffice to say you allow them to join… their name would obviously be something like “??? ???” and they would just be a general worker for the time being.
At a certain point they can say that they give up… and ask the village to name them and assign a profession. However if you encourage them to just wait it out… eventually they could snap out of it and regain their memory. They would have a name and a profession, but additionally the profession could possibly be something unusual… such as magma smith or geomancer. I’m thinking that this could serve as a way to possibly get those special classes without having to do anything special - but the outcome is ultimately a dice roll… you may get your third farmer, or seventh carpenter.
Just another one of suggestive ramblings…
