Helot and Villa
Being born a wealthy Spartan, Seth is a full citizen and entitled to lands that were once her father’s seeing as there were no other male heirs. The helot lies on a partially stony coast of southwest mainland Sparta.
The Helot (Unnamed)
Seth’s helot is rather small, spanning over a couple of acres along the coast. It does have good lands for farming and livestock, plentiful fishing, and other resources needed to make necessary tools, vehicles, or structures. The small village does have a dock that can accomodate a few small to medium ships but is mostly used by the local fishing boats.
Many of the residents are Laconian by birth but there are a number resident-foreigners, or former slaves who has earned trust and have been freed (A common practice in mainland Sparta and Greece). Those few slaves are treated well and are barely distinguishable as such among others. Overall there are 400 helots, 100 which so not live within the confines of the primary community.
There are 13 Spartan families, approximately 60 men, women, and children in the helot, most are within the village but a few have manors in the country.
Made of a white cream marble with red clay roof tiles, it rests on a small cliff able to overlook the village. The villa is spacious and has a private dock at the water’s edge, accessible by stone steps carved in the cliff face.
There is a private armory and treasury for Seth that connects between her private quarters and the barracks.
Spartan Barracks & Militia
The villa also serves as the Spartan’s barracks, off the main home is a similar structure of smaller size and more heavy fortified – having heavy wooden doors, small barred windows, and a covered roof. It houses all the helot’s soldiers who owe allegiance to Seth when they are not with their family.
There are almost two dozen Spartans that serve under you and and additional 4 dozen Laconian who are trained militiamen.
Available at the private dock are two slender, single mast vessels with 8 oars. Designed to be fast and moored on land by night during travel, they can carry 12 men tightly together with their personal gear: one captain, 8 rowers, 2 on sail duty or as lookouta with the last person.
