0.7.4 Series 4. The Iron series

The world seen as my village, my tribe versus the rest of the world.

Task Trade Abilities Profession.
This is the level where abilities start to be developed. They have to learn to fulfil certain tasks. In order to do this they have to be schooled by another person, either a master or a teacher, a school or the parents themselves. Eventually they learn to carry out this task by themselves.

Youth Adulthood.
This is the phase of becoming an adult. In our society this includes the years of puberty. This is when they learn a certain trade at school.

Village.
This is the area of the village or the tribe, as it used to be in the old days. The individual gets to know the whole group and starts to determine his own position within this group. This position is linked to a trade he has learned, for instance being a baker or a carpenter. The area is still small enough for everybody to know everybody else, the way it happens in a village. Research has shown that it is possible to know about 2000 people personally and this is the average population of a village. Everyone inside the village or tribe is seen as part of them. Outside of the village, the next tribe is seen as strange and dangerous.

Normal
This is the most normal series. It is about functioning and producing in the world. It is adult life with starting a family, building a house, making a fortune, becoming a member of society, getting and raising children. They adapt to the world, the rules and norms of society in order to gain a position. They try to be as normal, functional, useful and acceptable as possible. It is the family as a working entity in society, the couple working together to find a place in the village and survive by making enough money.
