I happen to enjoy this, and want to see if I can translate it over to the setting I am working on (Gaslight & Aether). The clockfolk will definitely be part of the setting, if I have permission. Go to Comment
In some regions, various occupations might be exclusively staffed by members of a particular race or ethnic group. As examples, a city's butchers might tradtionally have orcish blood, or all the dwarves in an area could be expected to join the miners' guild (even if they personally have nothing to do with mining). Those who violate these stereotypes may find themselves in conflict with local customs or idiosyncratic laws.
