Another fantastic selection of material... Flicked through the first few: I'm particularly liking the Hoplite Experience - sounds like not a lot of fun.
The Law's link is interesting - it's a little strange how different value is placed on different people. A 50% ownership divorce law is also pretty odd!
This is all going into my next homebrew setting...
Thanks very much!

Seems to make a difference who proposed, possibly?
It's a little confusing.
Either way, it makes it pretty clear that there were better things than being a slave!
The mining one is fairly odd. Trusted slaves were given incentives (like houses!) to make sure silver wasn't stolen... Odd.Nothing to see here. Move along now.

alsih2o, your sig link will only work for a community supporter, I think, since it references a search result. Could you post the link directly? More specifically, to info on Vikings!"I hurt Firewing." is not something a huge number of people can say. "He dropped a parking garage on me," on the other hand, a lot of people can say. -Kazan, my Champions GM.
