Servants in the Kingdom of Valyria are a type of coloni who have entered into a contract of bondage and fealty. They provide service in return for lodging and protection. Servants can include maids, butlers, cooks, coachmenn, gardeners, valets, and animal tenders. Because servants are a valuable part of not just an estate, but also a lord's household, the contract offered to servants usually contains provisions limiting marriage, prevention of travel, and requirements for livery. It is expected that most servants will be NPC characters, but the role can have some appeal to players who are interested in developing a certain skill. Those merely wanting to rent from a lord are better following the socager role, and those wanting to fight under the lord are better taking an oath of serjeanty.
