John Locke once said that most arguments are, at their heart, about the definitions of words. So from


journeyman (jūrn-mn)n.
1: One who has fully served an apprenticeship in a trade or craft and is a qualified worker in another's employ. 2: An experienced and competent but undistinguished worker.


A journeyman is one who is qualified to practice a trade without supservision, but has not yet reached the status of master, and so cannot instruct apprentices of his own in the craft.

<=20 Apprentice or amateur
1W = can practice as a trade
10W = clan thane level
1W2 = Master of skill
10W2 = Tribal officer level
1W3+ = Heroic
