I did a search, though it's always possible I missed it. If there really isn't a Gorean RP going on, I must say, that's very surprising. I did see a few solo and 1on1s, but nothing near the scope of what I was thinking. You see, I believe that a really good Gorean community could take root here if we encourage it's growth and maturation. I've seen what buzzen and imvu have to offer Goreans, and I am convinced that with a bit of effort, they could be blown completely out of the water. The amount of variety is just astounding, and it has almost everything for everyone.
For those unfamiliar with Gor, it is the setting of a long running series of books by one John Norman. Many of the books may be hard to find, but many websites have them for download. If you read this and are interested, pm me. I'll give you what I got, and eventually post that info if there's enough interest. I will give a basic rundown though.
A good Gorean rp has many facets. Gorean warriors are masters of armed, mounted, and naval combat. They fight wars, guard the peace, and protect those that can afford their services. They may not be as educated as an Earth man or Gorean scribe, but there is no such thing as an old, stupid warrior. If they aren't witty, they are at least bright and cunning.
Gorean slaves, kajira (women) and kajirus (men) are a major facet. Any woman looking to get it on with a Conan expy that owns her heart, mind, and body, this is your RP.
Merchants and scribes offer a multitude of non-violent, non-overtly sexual characters. Buy low, sell high, and hope pirates or bandits don't make off with more than the planned acceptable losses calculated for your caravans. Alternately, become a teacher, lawyer, scholar, or the first man those in power go to when they need answers and options.
Assassins are a mix of combat and rp, but should also be treated with great care. Yes, your job is to kill people, but few outside your caste are really ok with that. It's a fine line between being a total badass, or a total jerkass. But you get to skulk in the shadows and wear lots of black.
Free women can be frosty witches yearning for the collar in their hearts, or just frosty witches. They are smart, sharp, and possibly more dangerous than their men, but it is a dangerous game they play. They must protect themselves and trust the arms that wield the swords of their guards. One mistake, and all their plans and machinations could see them with a branded thigh and standing atop an auction block. If they are a lower caste though, their chances for responsible fun open up considerably, but they still live in a world where every man that they don't call family could be fitting them for a collar with their eyes.
Then there are all the different cultures. You have the urban Goreans, loosely based on the Greeks and Romans. There are the wagon peoples, Mongolian like herders of giant oxen creatures. Or the Torvaldslanders, Vikings and pirates that are on the front lines of a war against bestial invaders from space. The Native American red savages, and the Arabian Tahari also provide numerous settings, changes of pace... and enemies.
I think at first it might be best to start small and then expand according to interest levels. If enough people get involved, we could hypothetically get an entire world going. A city may be a bit more attainable though.
Of course, much depends on format. This would be my first time doing a Gorean rp outside a chatroom. However, my experiences with those has been universally negative. If we can get something going on the forums, that be awesome, but I am open to moving it to chat if it's agreed as the best option. If that happens, I have some ideas I'll get into at that point.
I'd prefer all those interested leave a post here instead of pming me, just to keep things centralized. Again, I'll provide clarification and whatever information I have on hand. Just ask, ok?
Hope y'all like this idea!
