  Thrall - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The first person to describe thralls was the Roman historian Tacitus, who wrote in AD 98 that the Swedes (Suiones) had no right to carry arms, but that the weapons were locked inside and protected by a slave only to be distributed when they were attacked by enemies.
The thralls were kept as livestock and their master had the right of their life and death.
One who was born of a female thrall by a free father was considered to be free, whereas those who were born by a free woman having a thrall father were considered to be a thrall.

The baby was born a thrall as thraldom was hereditary.
Thralls could also be set free by their owners or buy themselves freedom by hard work.
But the emancipated thrall was not "really" free - in most cases he or she ended up in an intermediate position between thraldom and freedom and it took several generations before the thrall's descendants were given the same rights as free people.

 Viking Answer Lady Webpage - Slavery and Thralldom: The Unfree in Viking Scandinavia
All thralls could be termed "bond-servants" (an anchronistic term when referring to the Viking Age, which arose from the much later custom of indentured service) due to the fact that it was possible for the thrall to purchase his/her freedom or redeem his bond by paying his owner his purchase price or current worth.
Throughout Scandinavia, the universal sigil of the thrall was the slave collar around the neck, combined with short-cropped hair: in Christian times no female thrall was allowed to wear their hair beneath a kerchief, as this was reserved for the lady of the estate.
The granting of a thrall's freedom was an occasion for much ceremony, as the former thrall had no existence as a human in the eyes of the law until his cash redemption.

 Thralls
A Thrall may only select a new Thrall from a lower Thrall cast, but that does not mean when a Thrall under command advances it cannot advance to a higher cast (if it meets the cast requirements), in which case the Thrall is still under the command of the Thrall that previously had command.
Thralls under command are faithful first to their immediate commander and then to their commander’s commander, and on up the chain.
If a Thrall is demoted, he should be immediately assigned to a lower Thrall cast than his current and his lost Thrall cast level, should be converted into the lower level Thrall cast of equal ECL level.

I know that in WM we have scrap thralls, and mechanithralls, bile thralls, stitch thralls and bane thralls, but I was wondering if the MN1 details some more basic thralls for use in IKRPG.

Warrior Thralls, Lieutenants etc. are meant to be harder, have some intelligence, and use armour and weapons.

Thralls had few rights and could hold no land, so instead of being fined for lawbreaking they were beaten, maimed or even put to death.

Ill treatment of thralls was regarded as an undesirable quality and most masters appear to have treated their slaves quite well.

Lastly, there are the Brains, which can use their powers to strengthen their fellow Thralls or to disarm traps and bombs, and thus they are best suited as a support unit.

Suddenly, the Bile Thralls leaped out from behind the Bane Thralls and rushed forward, only for me to forget to make them blow up, setting up the Chain Lightning question that has been raised elsewhere on the forums (I'd post a link, but I'm lazy).

If a thrall is just being sent off to fight weak monsters or is used as a pack-animal (because treasure is heavy), the check is quite easy to make.
One of the effects is to snap the retrieving Thrall out of his Wizard's control and give him the command to hunt down and kill the Wizard (the Thrall passes into control of another player as an independent character).
If a Thrall "snaps out of it", it doesn't influence the other Thralls unless the independent Thrall starts beating on his former comrades (which is inherently possible, as we have a chart you roll against when a Thrall is independent to determine what it is he does in a turn (i.e.

That winter at Yule-tide had Thorolf a great drinking, and put the drink round briskly to his thralls, and when they were drunk, he egged them on to go up to Ulfar's-fell and burn Ulfar in his house, and promised to give them their freedom therefor.
Then they went thereto forthwith, and took the thralls, and slaked the fire, and the houses were but little burned.
But when the suit came into court, Arnkel claimed for himself a verdict of not guilty, (1) and set that forth as a defence that the thralls were taken with quickfire for the burning of a homestead.

 Thanes, Churls, Thralls, Wergeld, and Folk Moot
Most were freemen called "churls," but there were also "thralls" or slaves.
Other thralls were prisoners taken in wars between the kingdoms, or criminals unable to pay fines imposed on them.
The chief mark distinguishing the ranks of the thane, churl, and thrall was "wergeld." This was a man's "life-price" - the number of oxen or the sum of money that had to be paid to his relatives by anyone who killed him.
