#272: Archeos Society

Perhaps the greatest lingering question is how and why the Ethnos fantasy races were translated into academic professions for Archeos Society's re-theme. Apparently dwarves (Ethnos) are analogous to photographers (Archeos Society), and orcs (orc board!) are akin to curators. Odd. Halflings into students seems appropriately condescending. 

As much as the comparison stings, though, I can't teally object into making trolls professors. I've met some that truly fit the description.
