Somebody call for a doctor?
You stand alongside a high table, a man clinging to the edge of life lays there beside you. His abdomen is peppered with buckshot from a trench shotgun, and the only thing standing between him and the clutches of death is you. You have the knowledge and grit to keep calm under pressure and get the job done.
Doctors are people who provide medical services to the populace. You take care of those who don't have access to magical healing, or to those who can't afford it. Your knowledge of healer's kits and medical instruments are vital to the survival of those in need.
Professional snoop that get's the scoop!
A cold wind blows between the alleyways of a sprawling city, scattering litter and debris strewn across the ground. To most, this is just useless junk. To you, it could be the answer to a mystery the police failed to solve, or chose to overlook. Whether this will help, you don't know. You do know that everyone must know the truth, and you need to be the one to put it out there.
Investigative Journalists are sleuths who specialise in getting the real truth out of people. Lacking the authority in an official capacity of police, people feel much more comfortable talking to them, and are less inclined to be avoided by less than savoury types.
This moves, but I'm not sure if it should.

Working all the live long day
Rocket Powered Gladiators
You stand 100ft away from your opponent, lance in hand. You are armoured up to the last inch, shield affixed to your arm, roller-greaves strapped to your legs. The rocket pack mounted to your back begins to spark and flare, when suddenly it erupts, and you are propelled forward. A split second goes by, your opponents lance glances off your shoulder, and your splinters again their gorget. They fall and you keep rolling. The crowd erupts in thunderous applause.
Trained to make the art of Roller-Jousting into a spectacle the crowd can enjoy, Roller-Jouster is a hardy, tough sports person, who is as much an entertainer as they are an athlete. They spend their time in between jousts tinkering with their armour and equipment, repairing and refining it to tip-top shape in time for the next joust.
What are ya buying?
War. War never changes.
