Awesome, I'm glad you guys like what you've seen so far. Now that it looks like we might have enough people to get the game started, on the first post of this thread I've posted up some rules as well as some resources and a character sheet template for you guys to use. So have a look and feel free to ask me if something doesn't make sense.
Otherwise, please post a completed character sheet for your character and we'll get this show on the road. As an example and for general knowledge, I've posted a character sheet below with the character that I will be playing in our adventure.

FreeIf free, to what caste do you belong?
AssassinsAppearance (please post an image with any additional notes you wish):
It should be noted that while his hair is naturally blonde, Arune had dyed his hair black as is expected of the caste of assassins.Biography:Earth:
Daden Coyle was born to farmers in rural Saskatchewan, Canada on August 12th, 1922. As a boy, he worked the fields with his father and brothers while his mother and sisters tended to their homestead. In 1936, at 14 and six years into the Great Drepession, Daden left his father’s farm and went to work as a lumberjack in British Columbia. In 1939, at 17, Daden enlisted in the Canadian army and was sent overseas to fight in the
Second World War. As a Private, he fought in Italy and was decorated twice for heroism. In 1944 he was promoted to Sergeant and participated in the D-day landing in Normandy. He continued to see action throughout France and Holland. In 1946, Daden was honorably discharged from the army and returned home to British Columbia where he had intended to find a wife and start a family.
However, powers greater than he had other plans. On April 17th, 1947 while working once more as a lumberjack in the redwood forests of British
Columbia, Daden found himself cut off from the rest of his group as a storm was coming in. Lightening like he had never seen before, crackled overhead and the wind blew hard enough to knock him down. The last thing he remembered was the sound of a branch falling from above and then everything went dark.Gor:
Injured and disoriented, Daden awoke in the middle of a meadow, groggy but alive. In the distance a massive bird flies overhead, a tarn as he would soon learn it was called. Alone and lost, he wandered for days without knowing where he was. Eventually he saw the smoke of a campfire and stumbled into a slavers’ camp looking for help. At first, thinking that he is an enemy, the slavers attempt to kill him. But with his soldier’s training, he managed to kill one of them and injure another before being captured. Though regarded as nothing more than an ignorant barbarian, the camp’s leader saw in him the makings of a grand fighting slave. He was stripped of his name and renamed Arune, an alias that he maintains to this day and sent to fight in the arena. For the next six years, Arune would fight as a gladiator and eventually won his freedom.
As a barbarian and former slave, Arune had neither caste nor a home stone. In essence, he was utterly alone. Angered by his brutal treatment, he killed his former master and fled into the wilds of Gor. He then turned to the only caste that would accept possibly him, and became an assassin. Cold, calculating and deadly, Arune has since carved out a fierce reputation in blood. Weapons and Equipment (what your character would normally carry):
Arune generally wears the black tunic and helmet indicative of his caste. In the way of weapons, he usually has a gladius (short sword), a belt of seven killing knives (smaller cousins of the quiva, designed for throwing), a hook knife (a small curved knife often used in the arena), and a crossbow which is the signature weapon of the assassin.
