What are the map professions?

Anyone have a list of the map professions? Most of them are easy to understand, but others might need some info. Groundskeeper, is that a glorified janitor?

But I think the main question is, how do those translate into the game. Most of them are easy to figure out like Vintner or Woodcutter but not all of them. Vagabond? Does that mean there are homeless running around in my village? Stationer? So he makes stations? Mercer? The GI Joe that was a defected COBRA Viper lives there?

Vagabond: Homeless or itinerant person - could be a seasonal worker, could be a spice addict. In this case, however, I suspect they're using the Middle English definition of low level criminal.

Stationer: Makes or sells stationery (pens, paper and the like).

Mercer: Sells cloth.

Feel free to ask more, I have google.

When a true threat enters their territory, Skirmishers will come together to form small squads or bands, to harass, harry, ambush, distract, and ultimately whittle away an enemy force until that force is routed or is reduced in strength enough that they can be defeated by local defenders with the Skirmishers' help.

They are essentially regular citizens with combat prowess who can act as a sort of local militia if the need arises. They are generally considered elite fighters with superior skills to your average soldier, but often lack a nuanced understanding of strategy.
  • Weaver -> weaves
  • Woodcutter -> collects wood
  • Woodworker -> works with wood

Also, to clarify the following 2:

Textile Maker -> makes textiles (Textiles being the turning of fiber into yarn, yarn into fabric, and fabric into clothes; related to fabric or weaving.)

Tinkerer -> makes gadgets (tinkerers also fix damaged goods, skilled in various kinds of mechanical work, fixes pots and pans, generally a jack of all trades.)

There are a fair number of forester entries in swamp biome settlements.

[Edit] My bad, the main occupation of some settlements is forestry, and it appears that rangers are those who do it.

To be fair, swamps do tend to have a lot of trees.
