People of Gor (Gorean Based World Roleplay) Interest Check
« on: February 17, 2016, 03:01:02 PM »


The World of Gor is an alternative Earth exactly on the opposite side of the Sun. On Earth, the roles of the sexes have become warped through time and technology. No longer do humans have to work with their bare hands, where brute strength separated those from the haves and have-nots. But with supposed "enlightened education", the teaching that somehow men and women are equal in everything has warped Earthlings into an actual weaker state of sexuality. Women try to be like men, and men try to be like women all in a vain effort to not tread on any toes.

Gor is the opposite in this factor. Mirroring much of Earthen technology around barbaric times, Gorean people fully separate Men from Women, and Slaves from Free as reality shows each caste has attributes that are superior than another, and flaws more troublesome.

THE NORTH: TORVALDSLAND
The northern regions of the Gorean world are colder and more dangerous with wild animals. Their halls filled with fires roasting meat, furs covering their floors, golden ale in drinking horns or Kal-da, a spiced wine served warm, would remind you more of Earthling Vikings than anything else. Food is more hunted then planted, their homes are more scattered between their neighbors, and mountains surround the area.

The men are hardened, ill-mannered, and more crass than their southern brethren, and their slaves, usually dressed also in furs, are not as polished as their enslaved southern chain sisters. They are called "beasts" for a reason.

These northern slave women, or Bonds, are more brash and bold. Their words mouthy, their movements blatant, their spirits fiery. Their collars are usually thicker in width, they are not made-up or perfumed, they are hard working in everything that they do.

THE SOUTH: SCHENDI
The southern regions of the Gorean world are milder and warmer. Their seasons consist of a wet season, and a dry season, men often wearing turbans as protection from the heat. The colorful clothing, jewelry, spices, and scents would remind one of Earthling Arabia, where the slaves, or Kajira, wear fine silk as they serve their Masters Blackwine (coffee) and Ka-la-na (wine) before reclining to a pillow at his feet.

Schendi is a merchant port, a bustling and wealthy city with many homes, shops, markets, and trade. Large palaces with courtyards, silk curtains, and fountains are numerous. The men are wealthy, political, and more educated and accomplished than their more barbaric northern neighbors. And their kajira are beautiful perfumed dolls of perfection, clothed in silks, and trained in the arts of dancing and music.

Every action they do is well preformed and with deliberate grace. They speak softly and sweetly, they often don't do labor if they are of the harem so as to keep them clean. Their collars or thin and delicate.

All enslaved women are branded on their thigh upon Master's approval. It is the universal sign for "Slave".

FREE WOMEN
All women are not slaves. Most are Free, and they play a very interesting role.

If a Gorean male wishes to be married and bear children he will actually care for and keep, he can only do so with a Free Woman as slaves drink a specialized beverage that prevents them from getting pregnant called Slave-wine. In order for a woman to be Free, she must be born Free and remain Free through a very strict set of ways and laws. Some examples are...

If they are too much in debt, they can become enslaved.

If they speak too loudly in public, they can be enslaved.

If she trips and falls and her dress comes up and a man sees her bare thigh, she can be enslaved.

If they wander the roads, or the town, at night alone, they can become enslaved.

If they do not dress appropriately at all times, they can become enslaved.

The South demands a Free Woman be covered from head to toe, covering all except her eyes. If her hands, or feet show, she can become enslaved.

The North is everything neck down must be covered, and hair must be tied up. If hair is cast down, she can become enslaved.

One never pierces the ear unless under rare circumstances. If a woman gets her ear pierced she is forever branded as a slave and can never be free for the remainder of her life as pierced ears are only for slaves. One only does this under extreme discipline, or extreme love if the slave begs for it and swears her life to be her Master's slave forever.

Free Woman abhor Kajira and Bond-maidens. It is said because all women secretly long to be at the mercy of a Master as her femininity demands. The kajira and bonds can openly show their beauty and nakedness, can touch and be touched, whereas the Free Woman cannot lest risking enslavement. The Slaves, however, greatly fear the Free Woman as she can openly beat them whenever she pleases out of blind hatred and cruelty.

Interesting how both sides crave what the other has but takes for granted: the slaves crave to be free, but be enslaved to the laws of modesty and silence, the Free crave to be enslaved, but be freed sexually.

"Slave girls fear free women muchly. It is almost as if there were some unspoken war between them, almost as if they might be mortal enemies. In such a war, or such an enmity, of course, the slave girl is completely at the mercy of the free person; she is only slave. One of the great fears of a slave girl is that she will be sold to a woman. Free women treat their female slaves with incredible hatred and cruelty. Why this is I do not know. Some say it is because they, the free women, envy the girls their collars and wish that they, too, were collared, and at the complete mercy of masters.
Marauders of Gor

BASIC PLOT:
A very wealthy Master from the South has just survived an assassination attempt on his life and he has invited many wealthy and powerful Jarls and Masters to his home under the guise of good politics and diplomatic relations. In reality, he seeks to find out who tried to kill him.

Each person may choose who and what they are in either region. Perspective slaves can post they are looking for a Master to claim them, and perspective Masters can post they are looking for specific slaves.

Just want to see how many people of each Sex are interested and of which class's and region.

It is OKAY if you know little, or nothing, of Gorean culture. It is actually quite easy to catch on. All I would ask is learn as you go. Also, Goreans are not LAZY, so that should also impact your writing. You must not be lazy in your descriptions or actions.

Best of luck.

Yeah, I'm shocked that there isn't more Gor here, and I've never seen a group start up based on it, just 1x1's.

Good to get some more interest

Well I'm more than tentatively interested. I read the first dozen books in my teenage years and even in spite of John Norman's terrible, repetitive writing style, I do still carry fond memories of them. They started as a bit John Carter of Mars, but by the end were essentially S&M soft porn (not that there's anything wrong with S&M soft porn...)
I even have all of the books, although some of them only as pdfs, and even I haven't read them all.
I can play as dom or sub, and often enjoy the latter, but if this is like every other mutli-player game I've been involved with on Elliquiy you'll get about five slave girls for every master, so I'm reasonably resigned to wielding the whip. Given my username, I might toy with being of the caste of Scribes.

I'll give it a few more days to see if any women show up.

And yeah, I'm only on the third book but he listened writing style is so elegant and verbally sexually. Even just describing a sunset, Norman has a way of tickling the ears beautifully.

I love it all

I have read about half a dozen or so of the books, at different points in the series.  And I have seen at least one group game try to get started, but collapse after a few posts..  Then again, seen a lot of games end that way.

They do have a small, niche market of male silk slaves (see Fighting Slave of Gor), but it is very much a niche market.  If we get a Free Woman who was interested, I'd be willing to play that.

Either way, want to play either a slave or soon to be slave.

Understandable.  You really only need one person in a male role doing...a bad job of it and things can go off the rails spectacularly.

Entering into a "Gorean scene" involves a significant amount of trust because in some cases the woman is leaving nearly everything up to the whims of the man...or men.  The limits of everyone involved also needs to be quite transparent.  I don't believe that a Gorean "game" would push thresholds any more  than some of the games going on in the Non-Con or Extreme section but a healthy dose of caution and respect involved with the process would benefit everyone interested.

...in only my opinion.

I imagine that there is a reason why in ten years of being on E. this is the first time I've seen something such as this offered.  I think it can work but I also think everyone needs to be bringing their A game.

WhatLiesAbove, thank you so much for your interest! Either would work since you would have plenty of options in this world and players in the game :)

Mellific, I can definitely see it turning to Sandbox eventually when it gains popularity, but I didn't want to do that initially because it could lose steam with everyone on their own. I kinda have a new idea on how to play it as a group since this world is a little unique. But I'll explain once we get going.

And Praxis, you are right in pretty much everything you have said. The underlying actions of Gor are not foreign to this site, but I believe people shy away from playing Gorean because it is a very strict society with new foods, words, rules, and customs that few really know about. That's why I said that anyone can join because we were all at one time ignorant beginners and Gor is fairly easy to pick up. But it does demand a sense of advanced writing, as well as a true male dominant persona that doesn't just say "You can't say no to me", but rather "You WON'T say no to me because you know better".

Okay! So just to kind of see where we are, can anyone who is officially interested post what role and region they are most interested in playing. Just to get a conclusive idea.

I'd be interested in playing a southern Slaver.



I have a fair amount of familiarity with Gor. I read most of the books in the 1980's - everything up to and including Tribesmen, some of the others in the original series after that. I haven't read any of the newer ones that came out staring with Witness. I've also done chat based Gorean RP on and off since the late 90's.

I've read a little of the first book, and have looked into others.  It's appealed to me a little bit, and I've been giving some thought about a world like this, and in the Gor novels.

Currently I am unsure of what I would be interested in playing.  I would like to get a better idea of who might be joining, what sort of characters the group receives, and the like, before reaching a decision as to really throw my hat into the ring.  Looks and sounds interesting though.

I'd be keen on writing a bond-maid, who would have to belong to one of the Torvald-sort. I suppose that can be sorted out after things get up and moving.

My favorite thing to play is a bondmaid, but to challenge myself I will probably play an ex-panther girl, now collared red-silk exotic Kajira. Her transformation would be extraordinary, might even be the First girl of her Masters slaves. The story would be interesting but it will all come out soon enough.

Whoever would be interested in playing the Master who originally hosts the main plot, I would most likely belong to him. We can discuss details if anyone is interested.
