Operative, in this TSTT-immersion, the TSTT employs our priceless knowledge of the Roman town of Pompeii to assist you in reaching mission objectives.


You may find information about Pompeii through the following links, and you are advised to do so as necessary in order to improve your TSTT-attunement. In particular, the Demiurge advises that you learn as much as you can about daily life (what Romans ate, what Romans wore, what Romans did all day) in Pompeii, in order to function as efficiently as possible in the TSTT-immersions.


The Demiurge advises that a working knowledge of the structure of the Roman house will be of utmost importance in fulfilling mission objectives on several levels. Operatives will need to be able to find things in a Roman house. They will also be called upon to make important conceptual analysis of the relation of the structure of the Roman house to the workings of Roman society more general. The Demiurge therefore advises operatives to study the following diagram carefully, and use it as a guide to your actions in your TSTT immersions.


The Demiurge also advises that operatives dig deeper into the structure of the Roman house. In the following image, you will see the important features of the atrium of the Roman house, especially the larārium and the lectus geniālis. The Demiurge advises that you consider whether there are similar items to be found in modern houses.


Sextus' villa in the TSTT's version of Pompeii is actually the very real House of Menander, excavated between 1926 and 1932. Operatives are encouraged to explore the features of this sprawling home.
