I'd be a leather crafts man but the quiz says I am a Dress Maker. Although looking at the division of leather-work into the smaller guilds, i.e shoemaker, purse maker, belt-maker etc, I don't know which of these guilds I'd fit into as I'm a bit of an all rounder, maybe a bit rounder during Christmas. :-D

Dressmaker! Yeah right. The very thought of cutting material brings me out in a cold sweat. I can do a bit of leatherwork, fletch an arrow and knock up a napoleonic hat but clothing is a mystery to me.

Warrior too - I think it's probably because the writers don't know anything about castles apart from 'people fought in them' - like that's anything more than 1% of what they were!

I got 'entertainer' which is a better fit than most of this sort of quiz manages.
