DUNGEON MASTER

- everyone would be thrilled when I show up, which is more than you can say for other nobles and migrants
- I would get to chill with awesome beasts like giant scorpions and war mandrills
- no assigned labor, just going around forging weapons or taming dragons whenever the mood strikes me
- I would get to run around naked except for a cloak and nobody would dare say a thing
That was also going to be my alternative. I'm a friend to all animals it seems. So I'm a natural dungeon master as well. Dungeon Master Artifact Maker.

Correction: A few dozen cloaks, and every damn pair of gloves in a 2.53 mile radius.

The Philosopher.

You get all the important benefits of being a noble: you can eat and drink the poor suckers' food, take up space and do no work, and yet miraculously most players AND dwarves are still glad to see you.

Why? Because you don't stick your nose where it doesn't belong and let the real dwarves do the real work the way they really want to.

Brewer. No fort can ever have too many of them.
I want a brewer too. The brewer gets a direct return on his work, by getting to drink the great booze, low chance of a mood and generally safe within the fortress, they are not as prone to random deaths as other dorfs.

I'll be the manager. Since the overseer is too lazy to individually micromanage workshops, I have so much to do with updating work orders, I'll never have to haul socks. Even better, since you guys know what you are supposed to do without me ever talking to anybody, I can become a hermit, safe from tantrum spirals.

I haven't been able to get any vomit this release. Not any I can pick up, at any rate.
Swans, too. Swans are complete bastards.

Chief Medical Dwarf

You know, the kind that actually Diagnoses patients! Plus, dwarves would respect me for saving their husband/wife/son/ best friends who is the fort's best combattant...

Brewer, smith, dungeon master and smart noble are fine choices.
