No New Posts Haviv Bayith

The city province of Ammun is home to the largest of markets and trades between Judea and other realms to the north and east; particularly Anatolia. With a few arabian-looking faces on the streets and products and goods from all over Asia and Europe being peddled at its markets, the family who lead the settlement have to be tolerant to a certain point. Focusing on the money and trade that can be accomplished from strangers and foreigners and how the taxes of such trades then go towards Judea as a whole and the service of God, the Haviv family see it as their role to continue the flourishing economy within Ammun, regardless of who it is making the deals within it. Unlike in Moab where a favour is worth a thousand gold pieces, the Judeans of Ammun work exclusively in coin and refuse to take payment in anything else. They are skilled crafters and traders and know the worth of an item at immediate glance. All appraisers by nature, it is the Haviv family's responsibility to ensure that no disagreements or fights break out within such a competitive atmosphere and to handle the aftermath of any raids or thefts that happen along its borders or in its streets. The people of Ammun are loud and boisterous and all about their goods and trade which means the Haviv must have strong personalities if they are to lead a people with such firm wills of their own. The family is one of the richest in Judea and enjoy luxuries that others might consider to be slightly materialistic but they are careful to never step too far into false idolism or shallow thinking.

Board Description
A Judean home is very similar regardless of whose you enter; upper or lower class. The Judean people are about practicalities and so have a standard shape of home - a large entertaining room that often sports a stepped seating area where the family dines around a low table. and a section (usually at a cornered L-shape from the living quarter) dedicated to cooking with an open fire. A bedchamber is a separate room with a raised stone platform on which the mattresses and bedclothes are placed and the richer Judaen homes have rudimentary toilets that are a small addition off the back of the house and are relegated to a stone seat with a hole, build over guttering system that sends waste into nearby stream system and down the river.

Whether a family is rich or poor does not really affect the home in which they live other then to produce slightly smaller or larger sized rooms. The very rich will have separate sleeping chambers for their children but otherwise, offspring sleep in either the bedroom or the living quarters and the parents in the other. The only other difference between the houses of the upper and lower classes is the decoration. Rich Judean homes, instead of being made solely in granite or alabaster stone will be covered in pretty mosaics and designs in tile or glass, making colourful mandalas and designs on both the floors and ceilings. Some even paint their walls to be complimentary shades.
