1d100 Modern Professions

One of my vague games-I'd-like-to-run dreams is a Portal Fantasy game in Dungeon Crawl Classics where a bunch of ordinary Earth people get teleported into a fantasy realm and have to survive. To that end, I've made a table so you can roll some random modern folks. This is obviously unplaytested, use at your own peril.

* The Black Grimoire contains a single random Magic-User spell. If using DCC a level 0 Occultist can cast the spell with a 1d10. If you're using OSE you can probably cast it with like a 20% chance or something.
