The subjects were allowed to choose from three 20 to 21-person teams-- the Food Team, Clean Team and Yard Team. Each team was responsible for a set of chores around the subjects' section of the facility: the Food Team cooked, the Clean Team cleaned inside, and the Yard Team maintained the courtyard and sparring ring.
Out of character, players drew their characters or other characters executing their teams' given tasks. The winning team received moderator sketch prizes; their character got to choose a pair of shoes as a prize. Each team's top contributor received a full-body sketch prize, and their character got a bottle of wine. The MVP overall received a full-body painting, while their character got a basket of assorted liquors.
