Can you choose your class? And possibly your gender? ;-)
I am very fascinated by the 5 Gods universe (as in Chalion and onwards) but I do not think I would like my chances as a peasant and a woman.
Cetaganda I feel I do not know quite enough about, but certainly I would not like to be taken out and give as a consort for the governors, far away from my companions.
Barrayar - 'all women are wasted on Barrayar', but I would consider Beta.
Jackson's Whole - more of a war zone than any of the others, or at least a kind I could not take -no thanks..
That leaves a Lakewalker, and yes, I could do that. Meaningful work ;-)
Alternatively a captain on a river boat.
