YOU ARE TO LEARN BASIC EDUCATION FROM YOUR PARENTS, AND THE ROLES OF YOUR MOTHER BEFORE YOU GET MARRIED. THIS INCLUDES: LOOKING AFTER CHILDREN, POTTERY, WEAVING(FOR CLOTHES, BASKETS OR MATS), AND FOOD PREPARATION. IF YOUR FATHER OR HUSBAND HAS A JOB WORKING FOR THE HIGHER CLASS SUCH AS THE WORK GANG OR FEILDS, YOU ARE ABLE TO JOIN THEM IN THIER LABOUR. JOBS OF PRESTIGE ARE NOT OPEN TO YOUR CLASS. IF YOUR FATHER OR HUSBAND HAS PROBLEMS DEALING WITH THE LAW OR CAN NOT PAY OFF HIS DEBTS, YOUR LIFE CAN BE PUT IN DANGER UNTIL THE DISPUTE IS SETTLED. LOWER CLASS

MANY JOBS THAT THE CLASSES LOWER THAN YOU ARE DONE BY THE SLAVES. YOU WILL LEARN EDUCATION FROM YOUR MOTHER IN THE PRIVATE HAREM AND STAY HIDDEN FROM THE REST OF THE CASTLE UNLESS REQUESTED. THE CLOSEST YOU CAN GET TO A JOB OF PRESTIGE IS BY WORKING WITH THE ROYAL SCRIBES OR POWER CAN BE ISSUED IF YOUR HUSBAND/FATHER ALLOWS PARALELL POWER. YOUR ATTIRE MUST REPRESENT YOUR CLASS, THEREFORE IT MUST BE TIDY AND FREE OF ANY DIRT. ADORN YOUR DRESSES WITH PRECIOUS BEADS AND RARE DYES THAT YOU HAVE AQUIRED. UPPER CLASS
