I want to be a shaman. Knowledgable in herbs and roots for healing, eating, and communing with the spirit realm. An affinity with animals, where i can train one as a companion, a bear perhaps? though I'd prefer a hawk. (Will birds even exist in this new world?)
I want to be good with wood, and have my own canoe, which helps my fishing. Also making my own Bow, which would be my main weapon of choice.
Some of these things i know are coming later, but how close can i get to that type of character role?
