Types Of Gorean Slaves


In Gor, there are many types of slaves. Depending on their specific training, and gender, these slaves serve specific functions. In the real world, there are not as many types of slave, and they are less specialized. In fact, on Earth, a real life kajira may be asked to perform the functions of many different types of slaves. It is not common, although it does happen, for a Master to have one girl simply as a pleasure silk, while having another as a chamber slave or as a kitchen slave. Typically, a real life Master will only have one girl that serves both as the pleasure slave and the kitchen slave.



Basic Slaves

These levels usually apply to both male and female slaves on Earth.

White Silk -
On Gor this is a girl who is a virgin and not to be sexually used unless her owner decides to "raise her silk level." On Earth, a white silk girl is normally one restricted from sexual use. The Earth Born White Silk may not be a virgin, but the slave is normally restricted in use and service to his/her Trainer and/or Owner.

Yellow Silk -
On Gor this is a girl who is owned by a Paga Tavern. In the Paga Taverns of Gor, use of this girl is purchased for the cost of a bowl of Paga. On Earth, this level may be the same as on IRC or it may mean nothing. Now, since I only train from the books, I do not use this in real life or on line. However it is maybe by other trainers.

Red Silk -
On Gor, this is a fully trained kajira and they serve any Free Person who chooses to use them. They are, unlike the white silk, available for sexual play. They have few to no limits and will obey the orders of any Free they are given to, or taken by. Their sole purpose in life is to please the Free in any way the Free Person sees fit. Without question, argument, or even thought for their own desires. They often do the menial tasks, such as serving food and drink, but are equally often the source of great sexual pleasure. Normally on Earth, real life slaves are normally restricted to their owner, regardless of silk level, but this is not always the case.

**It should also be noted that, in real life, a slave's owner may dress him/her however He/She wishes and the silk colors may be as meaningless or meaningful as the owner decides. In general most Goreans, I have met in real life, try to stick to the silk colors. This is often simply because they are familiar with the using the silk colors, to denote levels of training, and to gives the slave a sense of progress and accomplishment in training. Without this sense of accomplishment, goals and training seem meaningless and arbitrary to the slave. Hence the slave is not as likely to progress well. Further, in homes with multiple slaves, it gives the girls a sense of his/her position within the home and a chain of command.

Slaves By The Books

These are some of the slaves listed in the books. This list is a short summary, and is in no way intended to be a complete list of ever type of slave



Kajira (female slaves)




BARBARIAN:

a native of the planet Earth, usually used in a derogatory sense in reference to slave girls from that planet. Also defined as slave girls captured from outlying regions or cities. Barbarian slave girls from Earth are considered shamelessly sensual. "Assassin of Gor" p. 20 & "Savages of Gor" p 83



BATH GIRLS:

are slaves at the public and private baths. They wear a chain and plate collar. The plate gives their name and cost. They wear towels with nothing beneath them. While swimming, many wrap a long broad strap of glazed leather about their heads like a turban. The bath girls are there for the pleasure of men. Sometimes the girls will pretend to swim away from the men and try to escape but are easily caught by the men. This is done on purpose as most girls could easily avoid the men if they wished. They become excellent swimmers.



BELOW-DECK GIRL:

the term used for slave girls transported in the hold of a ship. They are held in individual cages and because of infestations of lice, all of their body hair is shaved. The term 'below-deck girl' is used derisively especially by those slave girls allowed to remain on deck in cages, who need not have shaved heads, though all slaves on a slaver ship are unclothed. "Slave Girl of Gor" p. 318 - 321

These male slaves may learn the use of certain weapons, primarily cestae and other common arena weapons. In most cases, Free Men do not enter these arena games.

GALLEY SLAVES

Port Kar, Cos and Tyros utilize thousands of male galley slaves on their ships.

SEDUCTION SLAVES
They are used to lure free women into compromising situations so that the women can be made slaves by the couching laws. The couching laws exist in many Gorean cities. Essentially the law states that any free woman who couches with another’s slave, or even prepares to do so, becomes a slave herself and the slave of the male slave’s master. "Magicians of Gor" p 8

SILK SLAVE:

a male slave kept by Free Women as sexual toys, handsome and sometimes pretty by male standards, these slaves are often muscular and manly, as Free Women love having strong men at their feet, this can be dangerous if the slave doesn't know his place or wishes to be free. At the present time there is a city ordinance in Ar which restricts the sexual use, or "couching" of slaves by Free Women, due to the widespread belief that the physical charms of precious Free Women are reserved only for the free. "Fighting Slave of Gor" p 157 and 164 & "Mercenaries of Gor" p 437

STABLE SLAVE:
these kajiri are kept in stables and care for the livestock sometimes fighting for benefits, or betting money for their Owners; rewarded with female stable slaves

THRALLS:
male slaves of Torvaldsland "Marauders of Gor p82"

WORK SLAVES
They are usually used on cargo galleys, mines, great farms or as porters on wharves. Many cities use male slaves for some of the unpleasant labor in the cities, such as in the refuse pits. Most males work on chains with other slaves.


_________________
The female slave, sometimes considered nothing, supposedly, is yet in actuality, valued commonly more highly than even gold, which in turn, is often valued for its capacity to buy such women, to bring them into chains."

Common City Laws



1. The Laws of the City have no power outside the walls of the city However, a city does exert a zone of influence, referred to as an "ambit" which might encompass nearby villages and towns and it can be assumed that a city exerts a certain amount of control over the laws of those districts:



“There is a saying on Gor that the laws of a city extend no further than its walls.” pg 50, Outlaw of Gor



"Yet there is a hierarchy of Home Stones, one might say, and two soldiers who would cut one another down with their steel blades for an acre of fertile ground will fight side by side to the death for the Home Stone of their village or of the city within whose ambit their village lies." pg. 27, Tarnsman of Gor.



"The city-state," said my father, speaking to me one afternoon, "is the basic political division on Gor - hostile cities controlling what territory they can in their environs, surrounded by a no-man's land of open ground on every side." pg. 42, Tarnsman of Gor.


2. The laws of citizenship vary by city, but generally, a free person is a citizen of a given city only if he can reach it in one day's march. There may be certain other requirements, such as swearing to the Home Stone, attending public ceremonies and assemblies, and the annual taking of auspices. This gives some idea of what the ambit of a city might be, and reinforces the notion that the laws of a city might, indeed, in some fashion, extend beyond its walls, though this does not excuse trying to claim a woman by the laws of Port Kar while you're in Thentis, for instance, or apply Ar's Couching Laws in Port Cos. pp. 302-303, Dancer of Gor.



3. It is illegal to take out of the city a map of the city due to the dangers that it will fall into enemy hands and be used to guide invading forces through the Home Stone's streets



It is illegal in many cities, incidentally, to take maps of the city out of the city. More than one fellow, too, has put himself in the quarries or on the bench of a galley for having been caught with such a map in his possession. pg. 388, Magicians of Gor.


4. It is a misdemeanor to interfere with the duties of a state-owned slave.



"That fellow," I said, indicating the free fellow with whom I had held brief converse but a moment or so ago, "interfered with the progress of a state slave." "Go away!" she said. "They will wish to ascertain what person ordered slaves to attack a free man, an innocent fellow merely engaged in reporting a misdemeanor." pp. 384-385, Magicians of Gor.



5. It is illegal to practice your livelihood or alter your status without the consent of the Council of High Castes:



A man who refused to practice his livelihood or strove to alter status without the consent of the Council of High Castes was, by definition, an outlaw and subject to impalement. pg. 46, Tarnsman of Gor.



6. Those of the Entertainers and Players Castes may generally not be enslaved within the confines of the city. This is a matter of custom, and in some cases, legal ordinance. They may be arrested, tortured, imprisoned and executed, however. (An exception to this is that the Entertainers Caste is outlawed in the city of Tharna pp. 65-70, Outlaw of Gor.)



In most cities it is regarded, incidentally, as a criminal offense to enslave one of the caste of players. A similar decree, in most cities, stands against the enslavement of one who is of the caste of musicians. pg 44, Beasts of Gor.



Musicians on Gor, that is, members of the caste of musicians, are seldom, if ever, enslaved. Their immunity from bondage, or practical immunity from bondage, is a matter of custom. There is a saying to the effect that he who makes music must, like the tarn and the Vosk gull, be free. This is a saying, however, which I suspect was invented by the caste of musicians, to protect itself from bondage. pp. 297-298, Kajira of Gor.



The only other caste on Gor which is generally considered, for most practical purposes, as immune from bondage is the caste of players...The general affection and respect which Goreans feel for the game of Kaissa is probably the explanation for the practical immunity from bondage commonly accorded the members of the caste of players. pg. 298, Kajira of Gor.





7. No person may enter the city without permission except as noted below: The penalty for violation of this law is impalement above the city gates as a warning to others.



As was wise I avoided cities in my long journey, though I passed several, for to enter a city without permission or without satisfactory reason is tantamount to a capital crime, and the punishment is usually a swift and brutal impalement. Pikes on the walls of Gorean cities are often surmounted with the remains of unwelcome guests. pg. 49, Outlaw of Gor.



Those being granted permission are given pieces of pottery called "ostraka" to identify themselves. "As we do have the yellow ostraka and our permits do not permit us to remain in the city after dark," said Marcus, "I think we should venture now to the sun gate." Marcus was the sort of fellow who was concerned about such things, being arrested, impaled, and such. pg. 9, Magicians of Gor



8. Heralds and ambassadors may freely enter a city



"I claim ," I said, "the immunity of the herald." pg. 175, Raiders of Gor.



9. Assassins bearing the mark of the black dagger on their forehead are permitted entrance into a city without interference.



Kurrus, of the Caste of Assassins, entered the great gate of Ar. Guardsmen did not detain him, for he wore on his forehead the mark of the black dagger...When he of the Caste of Assassins has been paid his gold and has received his charge he affixes on his forehead that sign, and he may enter whatever city he pleases, and none may interfere with his work. pp. 6-7, Assassin of Gor


10. The penalty for treason is impalement or hanging for a man, sometimes enslavement for a woman.



"You have been found guilty of treason against your city and are under the sentence of impalement," said Aemilianus. pg. 379, Renegades of Gor



Her mother, before her capture, I had gathered, had been important, having been the confirmation treasurer of one of Torcadino's commercial councils, the Spice Council. She had also, in her position, I had gathered, and doubtless by her influence and acts, supported the cause of Cos. ...however, aside from all such considerations, was a citizeness of Torcadino, and Torcadino had been sworn to the cause of Ar. She had, it seemed, for whatever reason, presumably opportunism or greed, betrayed the pledge of her Home Stone. In the case of a man this can be a capital offense. She was not a man, however but a female. It was thus, doubtless, that she had not been placed on a proscription list, but only on a seizure list. It was her sex which had saved her. Had she been a man she would have been hung. pg. 141 Mercenaries of Gor.



11. The penalty for murder is impalement, even if the murder is committed in a place other than the murderer's Home Stone.



"Menicius!" he cried. It was he who slew the Warrior of Thentis. Not I!" "It was you who gave the order," I said. "...."Well," said I, "will it be my steel or the impaling spear of Ar's Justice?" pp. 382-383, Assassin of Gor



12. The penalty for desertion from the army is death by impalement.



"Surely you are a brigand," said the woman to me. "No," I said. "Then you are a deserter," she said. "It would be death for you to be found." "No," I said. "I am not a deserter." pg. 18 Mercenaries of Gor.



Beside the road, on the right, a human figure, head and legs dangling downward, on each side, was fixed on an impaling stake. The stake was some ten feet in height, and some four inches in diameter. It had been wedged between rocks and braced with stones. Its point was roughly sharpened, probably with an adz. This point had been entered in the victim's back and thrust through with great force. It emerged from the belly, and protruded some two feet above the body. "Perhaps that is a spy," I said. "More likely it is a straggler or a deserter," said the driver. pg. 40, Mercenaries of Gor.







Property Laws



1. Theft of a Home Stone is punishable by death, general impalement preceded by lengthy torture, or the tarn death, in which the victim is bound hand and foot to two tarns, lifted 100 feet in the air, and at a prearranged signal, torn apart as the birds fly in opposite directions. pp. 154-160, Tarnsman of Gor.



2. Theft of another's property is a crime. Punishment for the first offense is generally notching of the ear. Second offense depends on the sex of the offender...a male loses his left hand and both feet, a female is generally enslaved (for instance, in Lydius, pp. 47-52 Hunters of Gor).



"Her ear," I said. "Her ear was notched." Rim and Thurnock laughed. "A thief," said Thurnock....I suddenly recognized the girl. It was she who had cut my purse earlier in the day, the sensuous little wench, whose ear had been notched...I well knew what the punishment was for a Gorean female, following her second conviction for theft. pp. 47-49, Hunters of Gor



3. A thief in Port Kar, who is not a member of the thieves guild, is more fortunate: he is banished, and told that if he is found in the city after dark, he will be impaled.



"Turgus of Port Kar," said the praetor, "in virtue of what we have here today established, and in virtue of the general warrant outstanding upon you, you are sentenced to banishment. If you are found within the limits of the city after sunset this day you will be impaled." pg. 58, Explorers of Gor.



4. It is illegal to sell a slave that does not belong to you.



"For a man," said Peggy, "such an offense is punishable by exile. For a woman, remanded to a praetor, the penalty is that she commonly that she herself will then wear the collar." pg. 146, Rogue of Gor


5. It is illegal for a locksmith to make unauthorized copies of keys.



It is a capital offense for a locksmith, normally a member of the Metal Workers, to make an unauthorized copy of a key, either to keep for himself or for another. pg. 52, Assassin of Gor


6. It is a felony to falsify slave data. The penalties can range from banishment to impalement:



Some female slaves, incidentally, have a pedigreed lineage going back through several generations of slave matings, and their masters hold the papers to prove this. It is a felony in Gorean law to forge or falsify such papers. pg. 69, Savages of Gor.



Vart, once Publius Quintus of Ar, banished from that city, and nearly impaled, for falsifying slave data. He had advertised a girl as a trained pleasure slave who, as it turned out, did not even know the eleven kisses. pg. 36, Explorers of Gor.


7. The penalty for debt is enslavement, for male or female.



Male slaves are usually debtors or criminals. pg. 236, Beasts of Gor.



Also, a female debtor, in many cities, is subject to judicial enslavement, she then coming rightlessly and cateGorically, identically with any other slave, into the ownership of the creditor. pg. 275, Magicians of Gor.


8. The penalty for brigandage varies, and the penalty is harsher than for mere theft, undoubtedly because of the number of offenses the criminal is being punished for. The penalty is generally death. The form execution takes varies. It includes being hung in iron collars, in which death might take as long as two or three days, chaining to the boards, in which the victim is fastened on upright boards mounted on posts, which is often used in port cities, impalement is often the punishment in the country, with the pole being set up near a crossroads, where it will be readily seen, trampled or torn apart by tharlarion. If the criminal shares a Home Stone with the victim, a more humane punishment is inflicted: the criminal is stripped, tied to a post, beaten with rods, then beheaded.



"Men would find us with the loot about, and impale us!" said the leader. That was not improbable. Thieves are often dealt with harshly on Gor. pg. 11, Renegades of Gor.



"Chain them and hang them in collars at the inn!" said a fellow..."Chain them on the boards," cried another..."Let them be trampled by tharlarion," said a fellow..."No, let them be torn apart by them," said another...If one shares a Home Stone with the victim, of course, the punishment is often more humane. A common punishment where this mitigating feature obtains is to strip the victim, tie him to a post, beat him with rods and then behead him. This, like the hanging in chains, the exposure on boards, and such, is a very ancient modality of execution. pp. 14-15, Renegades of Gor.


9. Because of financial considerations, some cities will enforce Merchant Law even when it hurts their citizens.



The Gorean cities will, within their own walls, enforce the Merchant Law when pertinent, even against their own citizens. If they did not, of course, the fairs would be closed to the citizens of that city. pg. 11, Priest Kings of Gor.



10. Merchant Law prohibits the enslavement of any at the fairs.



Although no one may be enslaved at the fair, slaves may be bought and sold within its precincts. pg. 12, Priest Kings of Gor.



11. By the laws of Port Kar, the property of a man killed goes to the man who killed him:



By the laws of Port Kar, the ships, properties and chattles of Surbus, he having been vanquished in fair combat and permitted the death of blood and sea, became mine; his men stood ready to obey me; his ships became mine to command; his hall became my h all; his riches mine, his slaves mine. It was thus that I had become a captain in Port Kar, jewel of gleaming Thassa. pg. 2, Marauders of Gor.



Free Women Laws



1. The penalty for attempted kidnapping or collaring of a free woman of the city is mutilation and impalement.



Few seem to object to the institution of capture, not even the women who might seem to be its victims. On the contrary, incredibly enough, their vanity is terribly outraged if they are not regarded as worth the risks, usually mutilation and impalement. pg. 51, Outlaw of Gor.



2. It is generally against the law to face-strip a free woman against her will unless she has violated some other law.



Face-stripping a free woman, against her will, can be a serious crime on Gor. pg. 183, Kajira of Gor.


In most Gorean cities it is illegal to offer an unbranded woman in a public sale. This is presumably in deference to the delicacies and sensibilities of free women. pg. 101, Savages of Gor.



3. A Free Woman who addresses a male as "Master" may be enslaved.



"If and when a free woman should utter this, in the Gorean culture, of course, this sort of thing is very significant. Indeed, in some cities such things as kneeling before a man, or addressing him as "Master" effects legal imbondment on the female, being interpreted as a gesture of submission." pg 139 Players of Gor



HOWEVER, a woman is not necessarily legally imbonded for uttering these words. As the above citation shows, it varies by locale as the following example demonstrates:



"I called you Master!" she (Phoebe) cried. "Am I yet legally free?" "Yes," I said, "but I think it will be well for you to accustom yourself to calling free men Master." "Yes!" I decided that I would not yet grant her the collar, ripe for it though she might be. She was a free woman. I would make her wait longer, in frustration, for it. pg. 147, Renegades of Gor.


4. A free woman who says pronounces publicaly that she is a slave is made legally a slave by those words:



"Pronounce yourself slave," said Samos..."I am a slave," she said, pronouncing herself slave...There was now a new slave on Gor...The words had been spoken. They could not now be unspoken. She was now rightless, only a nameless animal, incapable of doing anything whatsoever to qualify or alter her status. pg. 17, Players of Gor.


5. A free woman who is enslaved, loses her caste and citizenship and becomes, legally, an animal:



"When a girl is enslaved, she loses caste, of course, as well as citizenship, rights and personhood, When she is enslaved, she becomes an animal, subject to the whips and wills of Master's." pg. 430, Slave Girl of Gor



6. A free woman who partakes of sensual dance in public may be enslaved, again depending upon locale. Note the possibility in the citation below that other than a slave might perform sensuous dance.



The principle he had alluded to pertains to conduct in a free woman which is taken as sufficient to warrant her reduction to slavery...Indulgence in sensual dance is another case. Sensuous dance is almost always performed by slaves on Gor. A free woman who performs such dancing publicly is almost begging for the collar. In some cities the sentence of bondage is mandatory for such a woman. pg 372 Renegades Of Gor.



Certainly, however, not all women are legal slaves. Many women are free , legally, whether it is in their best interest or not. Such dances then, "slave dances," at least on Gor, are not for such women. If a "free woman," that is, one legally free, were to publicaly perform such a dance on Gor she would probably find herself in a master's chains by morning. Her "legal freedom," we may speculate, would prove quite fleeting. pg. 172 Dancer of Gor


No free woman, for example, would dare place herself in such a position before Gorean free men, unless perhaps, weary of her misery and frustration, she was begging them, almost explicitly, to put her in a collar. There are many stories of Gorean free women, sometimes of high caste, who, as a lark or in a spirit of bold play, dared to dance in a paga tavern. Often, perhaps to their horror, they found themselves that very night hooded and gagged, locked in close chains, lying on their back, their legs drawn up, fastened in a wagon, chained by the neck and ankles, their small bodies bruised on the rough boards as they, helpless beneath a rough tarn blanket, are carried through the gates of their city. pg. 342, Explorers of Gor.


7. A free woman who wears slave beads, even in private, if she is discovered, may be enslaved for showing slave-like behaviors.



I had left some slave beads in recompense, of course, pretty beads of cheap wood, such as are cast about in festivals, sometimes even being seized up secretly by free women who put them on before their mirrors, in secret, as though they might be slaves. In many cities, incidentally, a woman who is discovered doing such a thing may be remanded to magistrates for impressment into bondage. pg. 69, Vagabonds of Gor.


8. Falsely accusing a free woman of slavery carries with it the penalty of impalement:



Once, in Ko-ro-ba, I saw a slaver, before a magistrate, distinguish such a girl, not even one of his own, from eleven free women. Each, in turn, was asked to pour him a cup of wine, and then withdraw, nothing more. At the end, the slaver rose to his feet and pointed to one of the women. “No!” she had cried. “I am free!” officers of the court, by order of the magistrate, removed her garments. If she were free, the slaver would be impaled. pg. 156, Hunters of Gor.



9. A free woman who is guilty of theft on a second offense will be reduced to slavery (for instance, in Lydius, pp. 47-52 Hunters of Gor) This is referred to as a Judicial Enslavement. (p. 48, Hunters of Gor)



The principle he had alluded to pertains to conduct in a free woman which is taken as sufficient to warrant her reduction to slavery. The most common application of this principle occurs in areas such as fraud or theft. pg 372 Renegades Of Gor .



"Her ear," I said. "Her ear was notched." Rim and Thurnock laughed. "A thief," said Thurnock....I suddenly recognized the girl. It was she who had cut my purse earlier in the day, the sensuous little wench, whose ear had been notched...I well knew what the punishment was for a Gorean female, following her second conviction for theft. pp. 47-49 Hunters of Gor



Too, in Port Kar, a free woman for her second offense might be sentenced to a penal brothel.



"The Lady Sasi, of Port Kar," said the praetor, "in virtue of what we have here today established, and in virtue of the general warrant outstanding upon her, must come under sentence." "Please, my officer," she begged. "Please sentence me only to a penal brothel!" "The penal brothel is too good for you," said the praetor. pg. 58, Explorers of Gor.



The law is harsher in Tor:



A female thief in Tor, even on a first offense, is immediately reduced to slavery. pg. 52, Tribesmen of Gor.



10. A free woman who is guilty of vagrancy and indigence will generally be reduced to slavery. This is referred to as a Judicial Enslavement. (p. 48, Hunters of Gor)



The principle he had alluded to pertains to conduct in a free woman which is taken as sufficient to warrant her reduction to slavery. The most common application of this principle occurs in areas such as fraud or theft. Other applications may occur, for example, in cases of indigence and vagrancy. pg 372, Renegades Of Gor



Vagrant free women are sometimes referred to as "she-urts" or "strays.".



I saw some girls rummaging through a garbage can. They wore short tunics but they were not slaves. Goreans sometimes refer to such women as "strays." They are civic nuisances. They are occasionally rounded up, guardsmen appearing at opposite ends of an alley, trapping them, and collared. pg. 139, Kajira of Gor



I might try to live by begging and scavenging garbage for a time as do those vagrant free women sometimes called she-urts...Once or twice a year, particularly when there are complaints, or they are becoming nuisances, many of them will be rounded up and taken before a praetor. Their sentence is almost invariably slavery. pg. 316, Kajira of Gor.



11. Free women are not always required by law to wear veils. Rather, it is customary. While free women are not necessarily enslaved if they are in public without veils, it may reflect badly upon their reputation. Of course, laws, as noted earlier, will vary from city to city.



The veil, it might be noted, is not legally imperative for a free woman; it is rather a matter of modesty and custom. Some low-class, uncompanioned, free girls do not wear veils. Similarly certain bold free women neglect the veil. Neglect of the veil is not a crime in Gorean cities, though in some it is deemed a brazen and scandalous omission. Slave girls may or may not be veiled, this depending on the will of their master. Most slave girls are not permitted to veil themselves. Indeed, not only are they refused the dignity of the veil, but commonly they are placed in brief, exciting slave livery and may not even bind their hair. pg 106, Slave Girl of Gor



certain bold free women neglect the veil. Neglect of the veil is not a crime in Gorean cities, though in some it is deemed a brazen and scandalous omission." pg 107, Slave Girl of Gor



For instance, the shocked Tarl tells Aphris of Turia,



"In my city," I said, "free women would not permit themselves to be seen unveiled before strangers." pg. 96, Nomads of Gor.



Free women, drinking, commonly lift their veil, or veils, with the left hand. Low-caste free women, if veiled, usually do the same. Sometimes, however, particularly if they are in public, they will drink through their veil, or veils. Sometimes, of course, free women will drink unveiled, even with guests. Much depends upon how well the individuals are known, and who is present. In their homes, of course, with only the members of their families present, or servants and slaves, most free women do not veil themselves, even those of high caste. pg 276, Fighting Slave of Gor



however, this is not true in all cities...for instance:



In some cities an unveiled free woman is susceptible to being taken into custody by guardsmen, veiled, by force if necessary, and publicly conducted back to her home. Indeed, in some cities she is marched back to her home stripped, except for the face veil, which has been put on her. In these cases a crowd usually follows, to see what home it is that she is to be returned. Repeated offenses in such a city usually result in the enslavement of the female. Such serious measures, of course, are seldom required to protect such familiar Gorean proprieties. Custom, by itself, normally suffices. pg 125, Players of Gor



She was veiled, as is common for Gorean women in the high cities, particularly those of station. In some cities the veil is prescribed by law for free women, as well as by custom and etiquette....pg. 106, Vagabonds of Gor.



However, also note the following:

In some cities, and among some groups and tribes, it might be mentioned, though this is not common, veils may be, for most practical purposes unknown, even among free women.

The cities of Gor are numerous and pluralistic. Each has its own history, customs and traditions. pg. 108, Slave Girl of Gor.



12. A free woman who appears naked in public may be enslaved.



For example, they may not appear naked in the streets, as may slaves. Indeed, a free woman who appears in public in violation of these standards of decorum, for example, with her arms or legs too much bared, may be made a slave. pp. 367-368 Renegades of Gor



Contrariwise, almost no free woman would bare her legs. They would not dare to do so. They would be horrified even to think of it. The scandal of such an act could ruin a reputation. It is said on Gor, any woman who bares her legs is a slave. Indeed, in some cities a free woman who might be found with bare legs is taken in hand by magistrates, tried and sentenced to bondage. After the judge's decision has been enacted, its effect carried out upon her, reducing her to the status of goods, sometimes publicly, that she may be suitably disgraced, sometimes privately, by a contract slaver, that the sensitivities of free women in the city not be offended, she is hooded and transported, stripped and chained, freshly branded and collared, a property female, slave cargo, to a distant market where, once sold, she will begin her life anew, fearfully, as a purchased girl, tremulously as the helpless and lowly slave she now is. pg. 69, Mercenary of Gor.



These rules are relaxed for lower caste free women.



'I wore but a single layer and my calves, ankles and feet were bared...Surely many low-caste girls go about with only as much, or even less,' she said. pg. 368, Renegades of Gor.



"Consider," said Aemilianus, "the exciting costume in which the prisoner appears before us, the baring of so much of the arms, the baring of the calves, the ankles, the feet, the cling of it, indicating it conceals no undergarments but only female, how closely it resembles in many ways that of some simple, humble, impoverished, low-caste maid..." pg. 377, Renegades of Gor.


13. Free women will not be collared for speaking their minds.



"And, of course," he said (speaking to a slave being charged with impersonating a free woman) "there are several associated considerations, such as arrogant speech, speaking without permission, and failure to use the proper forms of address." pg. 374, Renegades of Gor



(It stands to reason that if these are crimes for a slave impersonating a free woman, they are not therefore crimes for a free woman) AND The demeaning of men, whereas it is permitted to, and not unknown among, free women, is not permitted to female slaves. Such, on their part, can be a capital offense. Pg. 227, Magicians of Gor,



“Did you strike me because I challenged your manhood?” she asked. “I did not really mean it. It is only that I was terribly angry. I did not think.” “You were not struck for such an absurd reason,” I said. “You are after all, a free woman, and free women are entitled to insult, and to attempt to demean and destroy men. It is one of their freedoms, unless men of course, should decide to take it from them. You were struck, rather, because you were attempting to manipulate me.” pg. 422, Mercenaries of Gor.



"Now, she said. "Answer mine!" "Do not court an alteration in your condition, unless you are prepared to accept it, in its full consequences," I said. She shuddered. She lowered her eyes. "It is said that there is in every woman that which I sense so fearfully, yet longingly, in myself.""I wonder if that is true," I said. "I do not know," she said, "but I know that it is in me, passionately, strongly, irresistibly." "You are bold," I said. "A free woman may be bold," she said. "True," I granted her. pg. 8, Mercenaries of Gor.



14. A free woman may decline to follow instructions given by a free man with whom she has no formal association by marriage or by house, as the following example shows:



"These are difficult and dark times," I told her. "I tell you nothing you do not know when I tell you that. Too, I now inform you that where I go, it will be dangerous." She looked up at me. "Remain in the city," I said. "There you will be safe, there you will be secure." "No," she said. "No?" I asked. "No," she said, firmly. "I am not yours. I do not need to obey you." pg. 9 Mercenaries of Gor.



15. At the same time, a free woman has the right to not speak to a free man who addresses her. Her refusal to do so does not warrant a collar. In fact, not only is it NOT a sign of disrespect to the unknown male, it is considered proper for her to ignore him:



One may usually hire a lad from the district to direct one to particular points. Similarly, of course, one may make inquiries of fellows in the area. In such inquiries, the male will normally speak to a male, and the female to a female. This has to do not only with matters of propriety, enshrined in Gorean custom, but also with common-sense security measures. For example, a woman would not wish to seem forward, nor, in effect, to be calling herself to the attention of a strange male, which can be dangerous on Gor, and a woman, a free woman, might well be advised not to respond to the accostings of a strange male. pg 108, Magicians of Gor


16. Free women are not banned from all paga dens. This varies by city and by den, depending upon their level, presumably, of disrepute.



"In most paga taverns," he said, "free women are not permitted. In some they are." pg. 122, Kajira of Gor. Women are on the whole are not permitted in paga taverns, unless, of course, they wear collars. pg 197 Dancer of GOR



This was not much different, incidentally, than what was the case in even the most prestigious paga taverns. In such places, free women were generally not permitted. In them, usually, the only women to be found would be collared slaves...pg. 245, Dancer of Gor.



While free women may enter some paga dens, they evidently do it seldom, for obvious reasons. The risks are too great: "I have never been in one of these places before,' she said. 'I now understand why it is that free women never enter Paga taverns." pg 22 Assassins of GOR



However, see below for the penalties for entering restricted dens:


17. A free woman who spies on the doings of Masters and slaves in paga dens and other private forums, may be collared, for this is classified as conduct indicating suitability for a collar.



For example, sometimes free women attempt, sometimes even disguising themselves, to spy on the doings of masters and slaves. For example, they might attempt, disguised as lads, to gain entrance to paga taverns. And often such entrance in granted them but later, to their horror, they may find themselves thrown naked to the dancing sand and forced to perform under whips. Similarly if they attempt to enter such establishments as pretended slaves they may find themselves leaving them by the back entrance, soon to become true slaves. In many cities, such actions, attempting to spy on masters and slaves, disguising oneself as a slave, garbing oneself as a slave, even in the supposed secrecy of one's own compartments, lingering about slave shelves and markets, even exhibiting an interest in, or fascination with, bondage, can result in reduction to bondage. The theory is apparently that such actions and interests are those of a slave, and that the female who exhibits them should, accordingly, be imbonded. pg 50, Magicians of Gor



However, such interest does not automatically lead to a collar, and in no way obligates a free man to collar the free woman, as the following example shows, where just such a woman escapes with a mere reprimand:



There were now some ten to fifteen slaves in the circle..."How disgusting!" said a free woman, nearby. I had not noticed her standing there until now. "Begone, slut!" said a peasant. The free woman gasped and hurried away. Peasants are not always tolerant of free women...I noted now that the free female had gone a bit about the outside of the circle, and now she stood there, back a bit from the circle...From that position of vantage she continued to watch the dancers. This puzzled me...how strange that she, a free woman, would even linger in this place. Perhaps free women are incomprehensible. A Gorean saying came to mind, that the free woman is a riddle, the answer to which is the collar. "Away!" called a fellow, who had turned about and seen the free woman. He waved his arm angrily. "Away!" he said. The free woman then turned about and left the vicinity of the circle, hurriedly. pp. 49-50, Magicians of Gor.



18. A free woman, while legally free to couch her own slave, may not couch the property of another. As noted, in the strictest interpretation of the law, "couching" does not have to include the act of intercourse itself to fall under the legal definition of couching:



Any free woman who couches with another's slave or readies for such, becomes , by law, herself a slave and the property of said slaves owner...."Think of it in this fashion, if you wish," he said. "You have given yourself to Milo, but Milo is mine, and can own nothing, and thus you have given yourself to me. An analogy is the coin given by a free person to a street girl, which coin, of course, does not then belong to the girl but to her master. What is given to the slave is given to the Master." pg. 7, Magicians of Gor



19. Free women may or may not be free to walk about the city unescorted if their house permits it. While there are city ordnances against this in many cities, there are not in others, for instance, Ko-ro-ba.



In certain cities, as had been the case in Ko-ro-ba, women were permitted status within the caste system and had a relatively unrestricted existence. Indeed, in Ko-ro-ba, a woman might even leave her quarters without first obtaining the permission of a male relative or the Free Companion, a freedom which was unusual on Gor. The women of Ko-ro-ba might even be found sitting unattended in the theater or at the reading of epics. pp. 49-50, Outlaw of Gor.


20. A free woman who cannot pay her debts will be enslaved. A free man may pay her debts and thus own her. If no one redeems her after thirty days, she will be sold to slavers.



Women such as these, those at the wall, would be surrendered by the management of the inn for the equivalent of their unpaid bills. They would then be in the power of their "redeemers," any who might make good their debts. Lacking such a "redemption" they might then expect to find themselves, sooner or later, sold as slaves....particularly beautiful specimens are sometimes kept by the inn itself, as inn slaves. pg. 42, Renegades of Gor.



Also, a female debtor, in many cities, is subject to judicial enslavement, she then coming rightlessly and categorically, identically with any other slave, into the ownership of the creditor. pg. 275, Magicians of Gor.



The fate of such a woman can vary:



The mills, incidentally, like certain other low slaveries, such as those of the fields, the kitchens and laundries, serve an almost penal function on Gor. For example, a free woman, sentenced to slavery for, say, crimes or debts, may find herself, once enslaved, by direction of the court, sold for a pittance into such a slavery. Such slaveries also provide a place to utilize women who are thought to be good for little else. pg. 265, Kajira of Gor.


21. A free woman may sell herself into slavery for a period of time, ranging from one night to one year. The contract will set forth the limitations of that slavery, including resale, theft of the slave, death, etc. The contract, once entered upon, may not be cancelled by the FW. pg. 101, Blood Brothers of Gor.



22. A free woman who places a slave collar upon her own neck legally enslaves herself:



Sometimes a free woman, seeking to save her life, even at the expense of a slave, will remove the slave's collar and put it on her own throat, thinking thereby to pass for a slave....what the woman in her collar seldom understands is that she, herself, is now also, genuinely, a female slave. She, by her own action, in locking the collar on her own neck, as much as if she had spoken a formula of enslavement, is now also a slave. pp. 70-71, Vagabonds of Gor.


23. A free woman may at any time submit herself to a free man as a slave.



In most cities, on the other hand, a free woman may, with legal tolerance, submit herself as a slave to a specific man. If he refuses her, she is then still free. If he accepts her, she is then, categorically, a slave, and he may do with her what he pleases, even selling her or giving her away, or slaying her, if he wishes. Here we may note a distinction between laws and codes. In the codes of the warriors, if a warrior accepts a woman as a slave, it is prescribed that, at least for a time, an amount of time up to his discretion, she be spared. If she should be the least displeasing, of course, or should prove recalcitrant in even a tiny way, she may be immediately disposed of. It should be noted that this does place a legal obligation on the warrior. It has to do, rather, with the proprieties of the codes. pg 21, Players of Gor



'You understand, do you not,' I asked the girl, 'the meaning of this?' 'Yes,' she said. 'You may freely enter into the state of bondage,' I told her, 'but you may not freely leave it. This thing, once it is done to you, is, one your part, irreversible. It is not then within your power to break, alter or amend it in any way. You will then, you see, no longer be a free person, but only a slave.' 'I understand,' she said. She then turned to the young man, 'I am ready,' she said, 'Make me a slave. pg 298, Blood Brothers of Gor.



“Is it true that she begged bondage,” asked Boabissia, “that she chose slavery of her own free will?” “Yes,” I said. “What a fool,” said Boabissia. “Perhaps,” I said. To be sure, such a decision should not be made lightly. Such a decision may be made of one’s own free will, but it cannot be revoked by one’s own free will, for, after it is made, one is then helpless to alter or influence one’s new condition in any way. pg. 234, Mercenaries of Gor. (also pg. 416 Mercenaries of Gor)



They had declared themselves slaves. The slave herself, of course, once the declaration has been made, cannot revoke it. That would be impossible, for she is then only a slave. The slave can only be freed by one who is at the time her master, or, if it should be the case, her mistress. pg. 409, Explorers of Gor.



The procedure of submission is for the free woman to kneel before the man, and speak a "formula of enslavement" (pg. 71, Vagabonds of Gor) with words such as the following: "I ___________ of (Home Stone) submit myself to ___________ of (homestone), as a slave, completely, his to do with as he pleases." pg. 183, Beasts of Gor Or, "I declare myself a slave, and I submit myself to you as my master." (used in the case of two Taluna who obviously had no Home Stone to declare) pg. 409, Explorers of Gor In civilized surroundings, there might be certain legal details to be observed: “Various things might then happen. He might have you sign a slave document, in the presence of witnesses. As soon as your signature is on the document, of course, you are a slave. On the other hand, he might proceed even more simply. He might merely have you utter a formula of enslavement, though, again, doubtless in the presence of witnesses, who might sign a paper certifying their witnessing of your declaration. Let us suppose you utter such a formula. The simplest is perhaps, ‘I am a slave.’ You are then a slave. He will perhaps then say, ‘You are my slave.’ This claims you. You are then his slave. pg. 417, Mercenaries of Gor.


24. In Port Kar, because free women have less status in a pirate society, a House Master may collar free women of his house without trial or reason:



Luma fell back before me, her hand before her mouth. I saw that her eyes were deep, and very beautiful. She was frightened. "Precede me to my couch," I said. "I am free," she whispered. "Collar her," I said to Thurnock, "and send her to my couch." His hand closed on the arm of the thin blond scribe. "Clitus," I said, "send Sandra, the dancer, to my couch as well." "You freed her, Captain," smiled Clitus. "Collar her,:" I told him. pg. 23, Marauders of Gor.


25. The fate of free women when a city is captured can vary. In any case, before an invading force, a free woman has no legal rights:



Sometimes, however, the free woman in a captured city is not, say, simply stripped, thrown down and tied, later to be turned over to an iron master for the searing kiss of his white hot metal. sometimes, rather, she stripped, and presented before officers, is offered the choice between swift, honorable decapitation and slavery. If she chooses slavery, she may be expected to step onto a submission mat, and kneel there, head down, enter a slave pen of her own accord, or, say, fully acknowledging herself a slave, belly to an officer, kissing his feet. The question is sometimes put to her in somewhat the following fashion. "If you are a free woman, speak your freedom and advance, now, to the headman's block, or, if you are truly a slave, and have only been masquerading until now as a free woman, step now, if you wish, upon the mat of submission and kneel there, in this act becoming at last, explicitly, a legal slave." She is then expected, sometimes, kneeling to lick the feet of a soldier, who then rapes her on the mat. It is commonly regarded as an acceptable introduction for a woman to her explicit and legal slavery. pg 337, Blood Brothers of Gor. And, "We were put on the racks as free women," she said, "that we, the women of the enemy, be properly humiliated. Too is it not a rich joke for the men of Ar that more than a thousand of the free women of Vonda adorn their pleasure racks, fastened down like slave girls, their use available for a tarsk bit to the passers-by?" pg. 27, Rogue of Gor.



Sometimes, slaves who were originally from the Home Stone of the victorious army are freed, sometimes kept as slaves:




Sometimes, in the fall of a city, girls who have been enslaved, girls formerly of the now victorious city, will be freed. Technically, according to Merchant Law, which serves as the arbiter in such intermunicipal matters, the girls become briefly the property of their rescuers, else how could they be freed? Further, according to Merchant Law, the rescuer has no obligation to free the girl. In having been enslaved she has lost all claim to her former Home Stone. She has become an animal. If, too, she is sufficiently desirable, it is almost certain she will not be freed....Too, as often as not, city pride enters into such matters. Such girls, with other slave girls, both of various cities and with the former free women of the conquered city, now collared slaves, will often be marched naked in chains in the loot processions of the conquering cities. It is claimed they have shamed their former cities by having fallen slave, and if they were good enough to be only slaves in the conquered city then surely they should be no more within the walls of the victorious city. Such girls usually are marched in a special position in the loot procession, behind and before banners which proclaim their shame. The people much abuse them and lash them as they pass. pp. 409-410, Explorers of Gor.

Free Companionship



From the Gorean point of view the wife of Earth occupies a status which is higher than that of the slave but lower than that of the Free Companion. pg. 365 Explorers of Gor.



"There is no freer nor higher nor beautiful woman,” I said, "than the Gorean Free Companion. Compare her with your average wife of earth.” pg. 290, Nomads of Gor.





1. CHOOSING A MATE:



A. Custom requires a woman see her mate only once selected by her parents, but in practice, this practice is violated, more often among the lower castes than high:



Though on Gor the free maiden is by custom expected to see her future companion only after her parents have selected him, it is common knowledge that he is often a youth she has met in the marketplace. He who speaks for her hand, especially if he is of low caste, is seldom unknown to her, although his parents and the young people as well solemnly act as though this were the case. The same maiden whom her father must harshly order into the presence of her suitor, the same shy girl who, her parents approvingly note, finds herself delicately unable to raise her eyes in his presence, is probably the same girl who slapped him with a fish yesterday and hurled such a stream of invective at him that his ears still smart, and all because he had accidentally happened to be looking in her direction when an unpredictable wind had, in spite of her best efforts, temporarily disarranged the folds of her veil. pp. 67-68, Outlaw of Gor.



Beauty in a companion, of course, is not particularly important. Family and power are. pg. 174, Hunters of Gor.

Mating an ex-slave for one of High Caste could be politically inexpedient: Companionship with such a person, for anyone of position or power, was unthinkable. It would result in the equivalent of ostracism. With her as companion one could only be rich. Companionship with such a person, an ex-slave, one without caste, one without family and position, would be, politically and socially, a gross and incomparable mistake. pg.173-74 Hunters of Gor.



B. On the other hand, such a woman brought certain advantages:



I recalled she had once been slave, and that I had, on a certain occasion, in the house of Cernus, seen her fully. Other things being equal, I would, of course, prefer a beautiful companion. Claudia, as I recalled, with pleasure, was beautiful. Further, she, once having been slave, would promise delights not always obtainable from an ignorant free woman. A woman who has once been slave, incidentally, often wishes to kiss and touch again in the shadow of the slave ring. pg. 174 Hunters of Gor.

C. Often, a high caste woman has no say in her choice of companion:



It was up to Lurius to dispose of his daughter as he saw fit. She might not desire to come to Port Kar, but the feelings of the girl are not considered in such matters. Some high-born women are less free than the most abject of slave girls. pg. 174 Hunters of Gor.



D. The Father would approach another man about Companioning his daughter to the other:



Indeed, there were many important merchants who had daughters, for example, the first merchant of Teletus and the first merchant of Asperiche. Indeed, the two latter individuals had already, in the past year, approached me with the prospect of companionship with their daughters, but I had declined to discuss the matter. I wanted a woman of high caste. pg. 174 Hunters of Gor.



E. Love is not a requirement in a mate in high caste families. Joinings are generally political alliances:



A man is much more likely to be intensely fond of a girl he owns than of a free individual toward whom he stands in a mere contractual relationship. The latter does not own; the former he does. The owned girl is valuable; she is precious; this makes her much different from a business partner. pg. 354 Explorers of Gor



The pledged Companions, the Lady Sabina of Fortress Saphronicus, and Thandar of Ti, of the four cities of Saleria, of the Salerian Confederation, had, as yet, according to Eta, never laid eyes on one another, the matter of their match having been arranged between their respective fathers, as is not uncommon in Gorean custom. The match had been initiated at the behest of Kleomenes, who was interested in negotiating a commercial and political alliance with the Salerian Confederation...It seemed not unlikely that the match would ultimately prove profitable and politically expedient for Fortress of Saphronicus and the Salerian Confederation. In the match, there was much to gain by both parties. The Companion Contract, thus, had been duly negotiated, with the attention of scribes of the law from both Fortress of Saphronicus and the Confederation of Saleria. pg. 111, Slave Girl of Gor.



F. Slaves are sometimes freed for the purpose of joining them as free companions:



And it is not unusual for a master to free one of his slave girls in order that she may share the full privileges of a Free Companionship. pg. 54 Outlaw of Gor.



2. BRIDE PRICE:



A. A man seeking to take a free woman as mate will pay a Companion Price to the girls father. In a situation where he has rescued her from some peril, the father is honor bound to offer his daughter to the man without bride price:



"My father," she said, "and my brothers will reward you." "No," I said. "If you wish, they are bound in honor to grant me to you, without bride price." "The ride to Thentis will be long," I said. She replied proudly, "My bride price would be a hundred tarns." pg. 71 Tarnsman of Gor.



3. THE RITUAL:



A. A feast is held:



When I returned to Ko-ro-ba with Talena, a great feast was held and we celebrated our Free Companionship. pg. 216 Tarnsman of Gor.

The woman wears a garland of talenders. The talender is a flower which, in the Gorean mind, is associated with beauty and passion. Free Companions, on the Feast of their Free Companionship, commonly wear a garland of talenders. pp. 216-217, Raiders of Gor.



A crown of talender was often worn by the girl at the feast celebrating her Free Companionship. pp. 31-32, Outlaw of Gor.



B. The vows include a promise to honor the day as long as both live:



Talena and I swore to honor that day a long as either of us lived. pg. 217 Tarnsman of Gor.



C. As part of the ceremony, wine is drunk, in two vessels, by the joining couple, their arms interlocked:



I recalled her (Talena)...as she had been in lamp-lit Ko-ro-ba, when, with interlocking arms, we had drunk the wines of the Free Companionship. pg. 10, Hunters of Gor.



"I shall take the arm of Lurius and with him drink the cup of the Free Companionship." pg. 180 Raiders of Gor.



D. In some cities, a ritual de-veiling of the free woman took place:



In certain cities, in connection with the free companionship, the betrothed or pledged beauty may wear eight veils, several of which are ritualistically removed during various phases of the ceremony of companionship; the final veils, and robes of course, are removed in private by the male, who, following their removal, arms interlocked with the girl, drinks with her the wine of free companionship, after which he completes the ceremony. This sort of thing, however, varies considerably from city to city. In some cities the girl is unveiled, though not disrobed, of course, during the public ceremony. The friends of the male may then express their pleasure and joy in her beauty , and their celebration of the good fortune of their friend. pg. 107, Slave Girl of Gor.



E. There is apparently no kiss to close the ceremony, until the couple are within private chambers:



I suppose it was perhaps the first time that the lips of a man had touched hers. Doubtless she had expected to receive that kiss standing in the swirling love silks of the Free Companion, beneath golden love lamps, beside the couch of the Ubar of Cos. pg. 235, Raiders of Gor.



F. It often ends with the man carrying the woman off on his tarn, as a captive:



Then, in accord with the rude bridal customs of Gor, as she furiously but playfully struggled, as she squirmed and protested and pretended to resist, I bound her bodily across the saddle of the tarn. Her wrists and ankles were secured, and she lay before me, arched over the saddle, helpless, a captive, but of love and her own free will. The warriors laughed, Marlenus the loudest. "It seems I belong to you, bold Tarnsman," she said. "What are you going to do with me?" In answer, I hauled on the one-strap, and the great bird rose into the air, higher and higher, even into the clouds, and she cried to me, "Let it be now, Tarl," and even before we had passed the outermost ramparts of Ar, I had untied her ankles and flung her single garment to the streets below, to show her people what had been the fate of the daughter of their Ubar. pp. 213-214 Tarnsman of Gor.



G. At some point, either during the ritual or the dinner following, the "bride" and "groom" kneel across from each other at a table, rather than side by side:



Now, perhaps he reasoned, if she could not be enticed to kneel across from him at his table in the honorable resplendent robes of free companionship she might at least, perhaps, more appropriately, crawl to him naked, on her belly, under the whip, across the tiles of his slaves quarters. pg. 348, Fighting Slave of Gor.



4. NAMES:



A. A free woman does not change her name to that of her mate when she is joined in free companionship.



A free woman's name, of course, tends to remain constant. A Gorean free woman does not change her name in the ceremony of Free Companionship. She remains who she was. In such a ceremony two free individuals have elected to become companions. pg. 365 Explorers of Gor.



B. However, the following renders the issue more problematic:



daughters, unlike sons, are seldom economic assets to the family. Indeed they cannot even pass on the gens name. They can retain it in companionship, if they wish, if suitable contractual arrangements are secured, but they cannot pass it on. The survival of the name and the continuance of the patrilineal line are important to many Goreans. pg. 303, Mercenaries of Gor.



5. STATUS OF A FREE COMPANION:



A. A Free Companionship is legally terminated after the period of one year if not renewed by both parties, or if one or the other of the parties is enslaved.



"It is long since you have been the Free Companion of Talena, daughter of Marlenus," said Samos. "The Companionship, not renewed annually, is at an end. And you were once enslaved." I looked at the board angrily. It was true that the Companionship, not renewed, had been dissolved in the eyes of Gorean law. It was further true that, had it not been so, the Companionship would have been terminated abruptly when one of the other of the companions fell slave. pg. 9, Hunters of Gor



"I was kept in great honor in Ko-ro-ba," she said, "respected and free, for I had been your companion, even after the year of companionship had gone, and it had not been renewed." At that point, in Gorean law, the companionship had been dissolved. The companionship had not been renewed by the twentieth hour, the Gorean midnight, of its anniversary. pg. 11, Marauders of Gor.



"It is long since you have been the Free Companion of Talena, daughter of Marlenus," said Samos. "The Companionship, not renewed annually, is at an end. And you were once enslaved." I looked at the board angrily. It was true that the Companionship, not renewed, had been dissolved in the eyes of Gorean law. It was further true that, had it not been so, the Companionship would have been terminated abruptly when one of the other of the companions fell slave. pg. 9, Hunters of GOR.



"I was kept in great honor in Ko-ro-ba," she said, "respected and free, for I had been your companion, even after the year of companionship had gone, and it had not been renewed.” At that point, in Gorean law, the companionship had been dissolved. The companionship had not been renewed by the twentieth hour, the Gorean midnight, of its anniversary. pg. 11, Marauders of Gor.



B. When a woman stands in Companionship, she may take the caste of her mate or retain her own:



In taking companionship with one of the Warriors she would raise caste, for the Warriors on Gor are among the High Castes.... pg. 113, Slave Girl of Gor



Normally mating takes place among caste members, but if the mating is of mixed caste, the woman may elect to retain caste, which is commonly done, or be received into the caste of the male companion. Caste membership of the children born into such a union is a function of the caste of the father. Similar considerations, in certain cities, hold of citizenship. pg. 213, Slave Girl of Gor.



6. PRIVATE LIFE:



Of custom, a slave girl may not even ascend the couch to serve her master's pleasure. The point of this restriction, I suppose, is to draw a clearer distinction between her and that of a Free Companion. At any rate the dignities of the couch are, by custom, reserved for the Free Companion. pg. 68, Priest Kings of Gor.



That a male of earth may not even know what clothing his wife owns, or what she buys, would be unthinkable to most Goreans, even those who stand in free companionship...that a wife might wear a new dress and her husband not even notice it would be incredible, if not incomprehensible, to any Gorean, whether a proprietor or a companion. pg. 76, Slave Girl of Gor.



"A slave girl is best either when she is often used, or when she has been deliberately, for some time, deprived. A free woman may go days or weeks without the touch of her companion. For a slave, who has learned her collar, this would be almost unspeakable misery. Two nights without a master's touch would be agony for her. pg 235, Hunters of Gor



Sexual heat, it might be mentioned, is looked upon in free women with mixed feelings; it is commanded, however, in a slave girl. Passion, it is thought, deprives the free woman to some extent of her freedom and self-control; it is frowned upon because it makes her behave, to some extent, like a degraded female slave; free women, thus, to protect their honor and dignity, their freedom and personhood, their individuality, must fight passion; the slave girl, of course, is not entitled to this privilege; it is denied to her, both by her society and her Master; while the free woman must remain cool and in control of herself, even in the arms of her companion, to avoid being truly "had", the slave girl is permitted to no such luxury; her control is in the hands of her Master, and she must, upon the mere word of her Master, surrender herself, writhing, to the humiliating heats of a degraded slave-girl's ecstasy. Only when a woman is owned can she be fully enjoyed. pg 17, Tribesmen of Gor



True love is often missing from Companionships: He took me by the hair and trusted my head down to the furs. "A man can truly love only that woman," he said, "who is truly his, who belongs to him. Otherwise he is only a party to a contract." pg 444, Beasts of Gor



7. PUNISHMENT:



A. A troublesome free companion is sometimes punished by being chained to the slave ring of her mate's couch:



This harsh treatment, incidentally, when she is thought to deserve it, may even be inflicted on a Free Companion, in spite of the fact that she is free and usually much loved. According to Gorean way of looking at things a taste of the slave ring is thought to be occasionally beneficial to all women, even the exalted free Companions. Thus when she has been irritable or otherwise troublesome even a Free Companion may find herself at the foot of a Masters couch looking forward to a pleasant night on the stones, stripped, with neither mat not blanket, chained to a slave ring precisely as though she were a lowly slave girl. It is the Gorean way of reminding her, should she need be reminded, that she too, is a woman, and thus to be dominated, to be subject of men. Should she be tempted to forget this basic fact of Gorean life the slave ring set in the bottom of each Gorean couch is there to refresh her memory. Gor is a Man's world pg. 67, Priest-Kings of Gor



B. However, there seem to be limits to what can be done to a free companion. As she is not owned, she is not a slave, she would seem to be subject to the same penalties and protections afforded by the laws of the city to any free woman:



"She is a slave," I said to him, "not a free companion, who may not be touched, to whom nothing may be done, even if she turns your life into a torture, even if she drives you mad, even if she intends to destroy you, hort by hort." pg. 467, Magicians of Gor.



C. On the other hand, a free woman might be openly submissive enough to draw a different sort of behavior from her mate:



"Your slave needs, he said, made you a thousand times more desirable. What man does not want a slave? She looked at him startled. It was thus my intention to take you into honorable companionship, he said, but in the privacy of our quarters, away from the sight of the world, to put you in a collar, and keep you as a slave, even to the whip." pg. 257, Guardsman of Gor

8. PORT KAR:



A. There is no institution of free companionship legally recognized in Port Kar. In this, it is unique among the cities of Gor.



Port Kar does not recognize Free Companionship, but there are free women in the city, who are known simply as the women of their men. pg. 295, Raiders of Gor.



9. TORVALDSLAND:



A. Torvaldslanders did not "claim" their women as did the men of Port Kar. Free women in Torvaldsland were legally companioned, just as they were in the cities of the south



. ...the fact that her hair was worn dressed indicated that she stood in companionship...pg. 156, Marauders of Gor.

Slave Laws

1. Legal imbondment of a free person can be effected one of two ways, by voluntary submission or by forced enslavement. Legal imbondment drastically changes the status of a woman, depriving her of caste, the right to hold companionship, etc.



slavery...which condition deprives the subject of legal status, and rights attached thereto, such as the right to stand in companionship. pg. 277, Marauders of Gor. In effect (see below) they become animals in the eyes of the law.


2. Slaves are property, no better and no different than animals.



"Yes, my dear, you are legally an animal. In the eyes of Gorean law you are an animal. You have no name in your own right. You may be collared and leashed. You may be bought and sold, whipped, treated as the master pleases, disposed of as he sees fit. You have no rights whatsoever. Legally, you have no more status than a tarsk or a vulo. Legally, literally, you are an animal." pg. 316, Explorers of Gor.



The Gorean slave, in the eyes of Gorean law, is an animal, with no legal title to a name. pg. 16, Hunters of Gor.



`In the eyes of Gorean law you are an animal. You have no name in your own right. You may be collared and leashed. You may be bought and sold, whipped, treated as the master pleases, disposed of as he sees fit. You have no rights whatsoever. Legally you have no more status than a tarsk or vulo. Legally, literally, you are an animal.' pg 316 Explorers of Gor



'Am I an object?' she asked. 'Of course,' I said. 'And a very delicious one,' I added. 'Thank you, Master,' she said. 'Does it trouble you to be an object?' I asked. 'I do not feel like an object,' she said. 'Technically,' I said, 'in the eyes of Gorean law you are not an object but an animal. 'pg 352 Explorers of Gor


3. The slave's owner may do anything he wishes with, or to, his slaves, up to and including killing them. Being property, he may dispose of them as he sees fit. However, as with killing another person's vulo or damaging another's property, there are, as will be seen below, restrictions on the punishments that may be inflicted by another free person.



`What do you think should be her punishment ?' asked Callimachus of me. `If she is guilty,' I said, `whatever you wish, as she is a slave.' This was in full accord with Gorean law. Indeed, anything, for whatever reason, or without a reason, may be done to a slave. pg 115 Guardsman of Gor



Perhaps it should only be added that the Gorean master, though often strict, is seldom cruel. The girl knows, if she pleases him, her lot will be an easy one. She will almost never encounter sadism or wanton cruelty, for the psychological environment that tends to breed these diseases is largely absent from Gor. pg 104 Outlaw of Gor



Cruelty on Gor, though it exists, is usually purposeful, as in attempting to bring, through discipline and privation, a young man to manhood, or in teaching a female that she is a slave. pg 145 Fighting Slave of Gor



New slaves are often treated with great harshness. It helps them lean quickly that they are slaves.* Later, when the girl is well trained and her services become perfections, she may be treated more leniently, even lovingly, like a dog. pg 90 Dancer of Gor,



It seemed to me then as if it must have been Peggy who had betrayed us. She might well have known or suspected all. Too, she was a slave and a woman! Who else could it have been? She, indeed, must be the traitress, so lovely in her collar! It could have been, surely, none other than she, the branded Earth girl! I struggled, and cried out with rage. I did not envy the lovely blonde if she were caught. I wondered if she knew the fire with which she played. The vengeances taken by Gorean men on traitorous female slaves are not gentle pg 278 Rogue of Gor


4. Merchant law prescribes that slaves be collared and branded. It is up to individual cities to enforce or ignore these laws. See, for instance, below, re: Arian law in this regard.



In the case of the girl Rowena, of course, as she was already a self-pronounced slave, the brand and collar were little more than identificatory formalities...they would be fixed visibly and clearly upon her. This is in accord with the prescriptions of merchant law. pg. 36, Players of Gor.


5. Slaves may go naked in the streets, but if trouble comes of it, it is possible that the slave's owner may be fined:



For example, although one may see a girl in the streets, naked save for, say, her brand and collar, or a bit of chain, this is not common. This sort of thing is done, usually, only as a discipline. Free Women tend to object, for the eyes of their companions tend almost inadvertently to stray to the exposed flesh of such girls. Perhaps, too, they are angry that they themselves are not permitted to present themselves so brazenly and lusciously before men. Needless to say it is difficult for Men to keep their minds on business when such girls are among them. Perhaps this is the reason that magistrates tend to frown upon the practice pg 105-109 Guardsman of Gor.



Magistrates may frown, but the practice continues:



Indeed, sometimes girls are stripped in public, even in the squares, because masters are so pleased to show them off. Sometimes this occurs in heated discussions of the relative merits of different masters' girls and the girls are ordered to disrobe on the spot, sometimes being put through slave paces, there, on the very tiles of the squares and plazas, the matter being left to the acclamations or votes of the spectators, and woe to the girl who comes out second best in such a contest! Too, it is not uncommon, as a discipline, to send a girl out naked on errands. In such a case she is often locked in an iron belt. pg. 163, Dancer of Gor.


6. Anyone may punish any slave:



The discipline of a slave may be attended to by any free person, otherwise she might do much what she wished, provided only her Master did not learn of it. The legal principle is clear, and has been upheld in several courts, in several cities, including Ar. pg 122 Magicians of Gor



'You cannot punish me!' she cried. 'You are not my masters!' 'Any free person can punish an errant slave girl,' I said. 'Surely you do not think that her behavior fails to be subject to supervision and correction as soon as she is out of her Master's sight?' pg 225 Magicians of Gor



`Any free man may discipline an insolent or errant slave,' I said, `even one who is the least bit displeasing, even one he might merely feel like disciplining. If she is killed, or injured, he need only pay compensation to her master, and that only if the master can be located within a specific amount of time and requests such compensation.' In virtue of such customs and statutes the perfect discipline under which Gorean slaves are kept is maintained and guaranteed even when they are not within the direct purview of their masters or their appointed agents. pg 235 Players of Gor.



The type of punishment can vary...from striking the girl across the face, back or fore-handed: I lashed her head back and forth, first with the palm of my right hand, then its back. Then, with the last backhand stroke, I struck her from her knees, to her side, and she was lying on her side..."That was light discipline?" she asked. "Yes," I said, "naught but a mere cuffing." Normally, of course, one cuffs with a single blow. She had, however, lied." pp. 325-326 Magicians of Gor



slaves can be disciplined with slave rape:



"You would have subjected her to use discipline?" "Of course," he (Marcus) said. "But we do not own her," I said. "It does not matter," he said. "True," I said. Use discipline is within the prerogatives of a free person. pg. 330 Magician of Gor (see also pg. 226 Slave Girl of Gor, and pg. 174 Beasts of Gor)



However, there are limits to what forms of punishment a slave may be subjected to by a free person who is not also her owner:



"She is a slave," I said. "Anything could be done with her." "By her master," he (Marcus) said. "Not just anyone." "True," I said. One did not have the right, for example, to kill or maim the slave of another, any more than any other domestic animal which might belong to someone else. In the sense the slave is accorded some protection from free persons who do not own her in virtue of certain general considerations of property law. The power of the master over the slave, on the other hand, is absolute. He can do whatever he wishes with her. She belongs to him, completely. pg. 330, Magician of Gor.



7. A slave who runs away for a first offense will usually be beaten, for the second, hamstrung, or she may have her feet cut off.



The penalty for attempted flight by a slave girl, for the first offense, is commonly a severe beating. The girl is, so to speak, permitted that mistake. If she should attempt to escape again, the master's patience is usually less willing to be presumed upon. It is not uncommon to hamstring her. pg. 67, Hunters of Gor.



Escape, for all practical purposes, is a statistical impossibility for the Gorean slave girl. Too, the penalties even for attempted escape are often severe. Hamstringing is not uncommon. pg. 63, Rogue of Gor.



"I am not certain that it is altogether wise for a girl to attempt to escape. For example, if she is caught, her feet may be cut off." pg. 350, Explorers of Gor.



8. A slave may not strike a free person. The penalty can include anything up to death.



When one who is a slave strikes a free person the penalty is not infrequently death by impalement, preceded by lengthy torture. pg 74 Assassins of Gor



“What you attempted to do would earn a slave a beating at least,” I said, “if her hands were not cut off, or if she were not fed to sleen.” pg. 408, Mercenaries of Gor.


9. A slave may not demean any free person:



The demeaning of men, whereas it is permitted to, and not unknown among, free women, is not permitted to female slaves. Such, on their part, can be a capital offense. Magicians of Gor, Pg. 227



10. Slaves do not own anything, including their names.



In the eyes of Goreans and Gorean Law. The slave is an animal. she has no name, save what her Master might choose to call her. She is without Caste. She is without citizenship. pg. 148-149 Hunters of Gor.



Slaves in their own right have no names. They are animals. pg. 101, Rogue of Gor.


11. A slave must address a free man as "Master" and a free woman as "Mistress"



The Gorean slave girl addresses all free men as "Master" and all free women as "Mistress." pg. 215, Assassin of Gor.



"Forgive me!" she begged the free woman. "Forgive me!" "Address her as 'Mistress,' I said. It is customary for Gorean slaves to address free women as "Mistress" and free men as "Master." pg. 20, Mercenaries of Gor. (There is a claim in the TURIA SYSTEM that there are also several instances of slaves using the term "Lady" without suffering punishment in the books (See pp. 309,389 and 381 Slave Girl of Gor, pp. 386-387 Blood Brothers of Gor, pg. 219 Kajira of Gor, pg. 223 Fighting Slave of Gor).



However, in the example cited in Kajira of Gor, at least, the "slave" referred to does not consider herself a slave, and therefore uses the term "kind lady" instead of Mistress, and the free woman in question does reprimand her, and indeed, contrary to the claims made in the TURIA SYSTEM, beats her for the transgression:



"Where you come from," she said, "do slaves not address free women as 'Mistress'?" "I am a free woman too," I said, "I am not a slave." "Naked, lying slave!" hissed the woman....She then removed her gloves and, with them, struck me across the face. Tears sprang to my eyes...



12. A slave may carry money in their hands or in their mouth, or in a pouch tied around their neck, at their owner's discretion. There is not necessarily any city ordnance against a slave handling currency.



"The girl did not now, of course, carry a purse. Slave girls are not permitted to carry such things. When shopping she carries the coins usually in her mouth or hand. Sometimes she ties them in a scarf about her wrist or ankle. Sometimes her master places them in a bag, which is then tied about her neck. Gorean garments, generally, incidentally, except for the garments of craftsmen, do not have pockets. Coins, and personal items, and such, are usually, by free persons, carried in pouches, which are usually concealed within the robes of a free woman, or slung about the waist, or shoulder, of a free man." pg 250 Guardsman of Gor



A coin sack was tied about her neck. Some slaves are not allowed to touch money. Many, on the other hand, on errands, carry coins in their mouth. pg. 442, Mercenaries of Gor



Ho-Sorl, after several races, gave Phyllis a coin, ordering her to find a vendor and buy him some Sa-Tarna bread smeared with honey...(after she is set upon and rescued) ...he looked about on the ramp until he found the small coin he had given her...which coin she had dropped when the four men had seized her. (The implication clearly being that she had held the coin not in her mouth, but in her hand.) pp. 217-219 Assassin of Gor.



If a slave is carrying coins in her mouth, it is permissible to spit them into her hand in order to answer a free man or woman:



She spit the coins she carried in her mouth into her hand, and told me what I wanted to know. pg. 165, Tarnsman of Gor.



Indeed what really matters is whether the slave was carrying the coin with her owner's permission:



"What do you have there, in your hand," he asked. She clutched the tarsk more tightly. "Open your hand," said the leader. "What is the meaning of this!" she cried. "Must a command be repeated?" he inquired. She opened her hand, revealing a silver tarsk. He walked to her and removed it from her hand. "Have you been permitted to touch money?" he asked. "Please!" she said. "We could always check with her master," suggested a fellow. pg. 275, Dancer of Gor.



This point is made clear in Players:



A slave girl, you see, is generally forbidden to so much as touch a coin without permission. pg. 159, Players of Gor.



13. In general, a slave may not play kaissa, nor touch a kaissa playing piece.



Slaves are not permitted to play Kaissa. pg. 44, Beasts of Gor. However, Slaves are seldom permitted to play Kaissa. In some cities it is against the law for them to do so. It is often thought to be an insult to the game to even let them touch the pieces. pg. 298, Kajira of Gor.


14. A slave is not allowed to instruct a free person:



Slaves were not allowed to impart instruction to a free man, since it would place him in their debt, and nothing was owed to a slave. pg. 46, Tarnsman of Gor.



15. A slave may be tortured for information.



"Let the testimony of the slaves be taken," said the judge. The red-haired girl on the rack cried out in misery. The testimony of slaves, in a Gorean court, is commonly taken under torture. pg. 111, Tribesmen of Gor.



It is legal in Gorean courts for the testimony of slaves to be taken under torture. Indeed, it is commonly done. pg. 240, Mercenaries of Gor.



16. The property of a free person who is enslaved goes to the nearest male relative, or to the nearest female relative if there is no male relative, and failing that, to the city. The property cannot be recovered if the person is later freed, except at the discretion of whoever it falls to. When a master dies, his slaves become the property of his heirs, if he has any, and failing that, of the city.



This point in Gorean law is apparently motivated by the consideration that a slave always have some master. In the case of a master's death the slave, like other property, passes to the heirs, or, if there are no heirs, to the state. pg. 375 Dancer of Gor.



In Port Kar, if a man is killed by another, his property falls to the man who killed him, including his house, his ships, and his slaves.



By the laws of Port Kar, the ships, properties and chattles of Surbus, he having been vanquished in fair combat and permitted the death of blood and sea, became mine; his men stood ready to obey me; his ships became mine to command; his hall became my h all; his riches mine, his slaves mine. It was thus that I had become a captain in Port Kar, jewel of the gleaming Thassa. pg. 2, Marauders of Gor.



17. Generally, but not necessarily, for any slave who picks up a weapon, the penalty is death. .



It can be a capital offense on Gor, incidentally, for a slave to so much as touch a weapon. pg. 57, Mercenaries of Gor. And, In some cities a slave can be slain for so much as touching a weapon. pg. 123, Kajira of Gor.



Similarly in many cities a slave may be slain, or her hands cut off, for so much as touching a weapon. "Doubtless you would expect her, from time to time," he said, to handle utensils, to serve, for example, in kitchens." pg 315, Vagabonds of Gor



18. For any slave who claims a caste, the penalty is death (Capital Offense)



"It is a serious matter," said Aemilianus to her, "when a she-tarsk claims not to be a she-tarsk." ....It is a very serious "cause for punishment" on the part of a slave to conceal or deny her status. pg. 375-376, Renegades of Gor.



`I shall be restored to the honors of the Ubara!' she said. `No,' I said. `You are now a slave. A slave cannot be Ubara. You can do no more now than pretend to be the Ubara. In a sense you will be an imposter. And let us hope that no one detects your deception, for, as you know, the penalties for a slave masquerading as a free woman are quite severe.' pg 481 Magicians of Gor



For a slave to claim caste is a serious matter. pg. 292, Dancer of Gor.



19. A slave girl may not usually wear a veil, though this may vary by city.



Most slave girls are not permitted to veil themselves. Indeed, not only are they refused the dignity of the veil, but commonly they are placed in brief, exciting slave livery and may not even bind their hair. pg 106 Slave Girl of Gor



In some cities the veil is prescribed by law for free women, as well as by custom and etiquette; and in most cities it is prohibited, by law, to slaves. pg. 106, Vagabonds of Gor.


20. A slave may not masquerade as a free woman.



it would not be wise for her to be caught in the garments of a free woman. That, too, is a terribly serious offense. pg. 292, Dancer of Gor.



21. A child born of a slave is herself a slave and becomes the property of her mother's house.



If a father cannot pay his debts, his daughter will be sold as a slave and the proceeds used to satisfy said debts.



At one place, on a stone shelf, under awnings, several girls, chained naked, were for sale, interestingly, at set prices...One brown-skinned girl, black-eyed, no more than fifteen, kneeling, her wrists and ankles tightly chained, looked up at me. She was being sold to pay her father's gambling debts. pg. 51, Tribesmen of Gor.



(I)t is not unusual, in serious cases, for a debtor's properties to be seized and auctioned, that his debts may be satisfied. These properties include, of course, his livestock, if any, and any slaves. Daughters, too, in some cities, are subject to such seizure and sale. pg. 275, Magicians of Gor.



22. A free woman who cannot pay her debts will be enslaved. A free man may pay her debts and thus own her. If no one redeems her after thirty days, she will be sold to slavers.



Women such as these, those at the wall, would be surrendered by the management of the inn for the equivalent of their unpaid bills. They would then be in the power of their "redeemers," any who might make good their debts. Lacking such a "redemption" they might then expect to find themselves, sooner or later, sold as slaves....particularly beautiful specimens are sometimes kept by the inn itself, as inn slaves. pg. 42, Renegades of Gor.



Also, a female debtor, in many cities, is subject to judicial enslavement, she then coming rightlessly and categorically, identically with any other slave, into the ownership of the creditor. pg. 275, Magicians of Gor.



23. It is illegal for a slave to handle legal documents.



"Slaves are generally not permitted to touch legal documents." pg. 279, Fighting Slave of Gor



24. A slave must kneel in the presence of free persons of either sex.



A Gorean slave girl in the presence of a free man or woman always kneels, unless excused from doing so. A Gorean slave, incidentally, always addresses free men as `Master,' and all free women as `Mistress.' pg 73, Captive of Gor



It is common for slaves to kneel when entering the presence of free persons. It is common, too, of course, more generally, for them to kneel whenever they find themselves in the presence of a free person, for example, if they are in a room when a free person enters. pg. 159, Kajira of Gor.



Failing to kneel in the presence of a free man can have dire consequences:



...failing to kneel in the presence of a free man...may be regarded as a capital offense on the part of a Gorean slave girl, even if it is inadvertent. If intent is involved in such an omission, it can be an occasion for death by torture. pg. 252, Players of Gor.



25. A free woman may sell herself into slavery for a period of time, ranging from one night to one year. The contract will set forth the limitations of that slavery, including resale, theft of the slave, death, etc. The contract, once entered upon, may not be cancelled by the FW. A free woman may at any time submit herself to a free man as a slave.



In most cities, on the other hand, a free woman may, with legal tolerance, submit herself as a slave to a specific man. If he refuses her, she is then still free. If he accepts her, she is then, categorically, a slave, and he may do with her what he pleases, even selling her or giving her away, or slaying her, if he wishes. Here we may note a distinction between laws and codes. In the codes of the warriors, if a warrior accepts a woman as a slave, it is prescribed that, at least for a time, an amount of time up to his discretion, she be spared. If she should be the least displeasing, of course, or should prove recalcitrant in even a tiny way, she may be immediately disposed of. It should be noted that this does place a legal obligation on the warrior. It has to do, rather, with the proprieties of the codes. pg 21, Players of Gor



'You understand, do you not,' I asked the girl, 'the meaning of this?' 'Yes,' she said. 'You may freely enter into the state of bondage,' I told her, 'but you may not freely leave it. This thing, once it is done to you, is, one your part, irreversible. It is not then within your power to break, alter or amend it in any way. You will then, you see, no longer be a free person, but only a slave.' 'I understand,' she said. She then turned to the young man, 'I am ready,' she said, 'Make me a slave. pg 298, Blood Brothers of Gor.



The procedure of submission is for the free woman to kneel before the man, and speak words such as the following: "I ___________ of (homestone) submit myself to ___________ of (homestone), as a slave, completely, his to do with as he pleases." pg. 183 Beasts of Gor.



26. A slave may be freed by her owner, in which case she will be considered in all respects as free as any other free person.



It is not unusual for a Master to free one of his slave girls in order that she may share the full privileges of Free companionship. pg 54, Outlaw of Gor



many women are free, whether wisely or desirably or not, and slavery is not always permanent for a slave girl. Sometimes a girl, winning love, is freed, perhaps to bear the children of a former master. pg. 235, Beasts of Gor.



27. A slave who has her ears pierced may be freed, there is no legal injunction against it, it is merely much less likely that she will remain so, though this is true to a greater or lesser extent of every slave girl



Have her ears pierced. This would, in effect, guarantee that she would remain always only a slave on Gor. pg 48, Blood Brothers of Gor



however, the following statement demonstrates that branded and pierced slaves were sometimes freed, for one reason or another:



But the freedom of a former slave girl is always a somewhat tenuous thing. Her thigh still bears the brand. And, should her ears be pierced, it is almost certain she will, sooner or later, be re-enslaved. pg. 235, Beasts of Gor.


28. In most cities, slaves must be branded.



`Some fellows do not brand their slaves,' I said. `That is stupid!' she said. `It is also contrary to the laws of most cities,' I said, `and to merchant law, as well.' pg 188 ,Vagabonds of Gor And, "Girls such as I must expect to be marked," she said. "It is in accord with the recommendations of merchant law." pg. 46, Kajira of Gor.



The thighs and the lower left abdomen are the brand sites recommended by Merchant Law. Masters, of course, may brand a girl wherever they please. She is theirs. Sometimes a brand is placed on the left side of the neck, on the left calf, the interior of the left heel, and on the inside of the left forearm. The customary brand site, incidentally, is high on the left thigh. That is the site almost invariably utilized in marking Gorean kajirae. pg. 349, Fighting Slave of Gor.


29. In Port Kar, at least, a girl might have her her nose or ears cut off for lying:



Ulafi stood up, replacing the dagger in his sash. The girl had not learned that her feet might be cut off for running away, that her ears and nose might be cut from her for lying. pg. 69, Explorers of Gor.


30. It is illegal for a slave to drink from any but the lower bowl of a public fountain.



Slaves, like other animals, are expected to drink from the lower level of a fountain, and generally, on all fours. pp. 217, Magicians of Gor.



I came to a fountain, one of many on the avenue. It had two bowls, an upper bowl and a lower one, closer to the walking level, the water from the upper bowl spilling over into the lower. Free persons might drink from, or draw water from, the upper bowl. The lower bowl was for animals and slaves. pg. 314, Kajira of Gor.


31. Slaves are generally not allowed to walk about the streets of a city after dark with the exception of coin girls and lure girls for taverns.



As soon as it became dark, I would become suspect as a runaway slave. Slave girls, with the exception of coin girls, lure girls for taverns, and such, are generally not permitted to walk unaccompanied about the streets of a city after dark. pg. 316, Kajira of Gor.


32. Ar has laws requiring all female slaves to show visible signs of their bondage, but the issue of male slaves is more problematic:



The first collar I had worn had been a color-coded transfer collar, put on me at the holding area outside the gate, probably primarily to comply with the ordinance that female slaves in Ar must wear a visible token of their bondage....The laws of Ar, incidentally, do not require a similar visible token of bondage on the bodies of male slaves, or even any distinctive type of garments. The historical explanation for this is that it was originally intended to make it difficult for male slaves to make contact with one another and to keep them from understanding how numerous they might be. On the other hand, male slaves are not numerous, at least within the cities, as opposed to the great farms or the quarries, and they are, in fact, usually collared. Some, however, depending on the whim of the master or mistress, may wear a distinctive anklet or bracelet. A consequence of this ordinance from the point of view of the female slaves is that she cannot now even permit herself to be taken for a free woman by accident; her bondage is always manifest; it is helpful from the man's point of view, too; he always knows the status of the woman to whom he is relating... pp. 268-269, Kajira of Gor.



In some cities, including Ar, an unchained male slave is almost never seen. pg. 51, Assassins of Gor.


33. It is illegal for a male slave to touch a free woman (the assumption being that the slave is neither owned by the free woman in question, and has not received permission to touch her).



A male slave can be slain for touching a free woman. pg. 144, Kajira of Gor.


34. It is illegal for a slave to pretend to yield to a Master.



“I will never yield to them,” wept the girl. “Then you will be killed,” said the woman. The girl gasped, shrinking back in the chains. “I could pretend to yield,” she whispered. “That is the crime of false yielding,” said the mother. “It is easy to detect, by infallible physiological signs. It is punishable by death.” pp. 191-192, Mercenaries of Gor.


35. In most cities, the offspring of a slave is a slave, and belongs to the mother's owner.



...the usual case being that the offspring of a slave is a slave. and belongs to the mother's owner. pg. 267, Vagabonds of Gor.



However, in Tharna the mother need only be free when the child is conceived for the child to be born free:



In Tharnan law, a person conceived by a free person on a free person is considered to be a free person, even if they are later carried and borne by a slave. pg. 267, Vagabonds of Gor.



It is proper both by law and by custom to sell your own infant children into slavery.



The selling of infant daughters is not that unusual in large cities. Some women do it regularly. They make a practice of it, much as they might sell their hair to hair merchants or to the weavers of catapult ropes. Some women, it is rumored, hope for daughters, that they may sell to the slave trade. These women in effect, breed for slaves. Too, there is a common Gorean belief that females are natural slaves, a belief for which there is much evidence, incidentally, and in the light of this belief some families would rather sell a daughter than raise her. pp. 302-303, Mercenaries of Gor.

Capture Rights

The institution of capture is universal, to the best of my knowledge, on Gor; there is no city which does not honor it, provided females captured are those of the enemy, either their free women or their slaves. pg. 159, Assassin of Gor


The harsh, exogamous institution of capture is woven into the very fabric of Gorean life. It is regarded as meritorious to abduct one's women from a foreign, preferably hostile city. Perhaps this institution, which on the surface seems so deplorable, is profitable from the standpoint of the race, preventing the gradual inbreeding of otherwise largely isolated, self-sufficient cities. Few seem to object to the institution of capture, not even the women who might seem to be its victims. On the contrary, incredibly enough, their vanity is terribly outraged if they are not regarded as worth the risks, usually mutilation and impalement. pg. 51, Outlaw of Gor.


Something of the nature of the institution of capture, and the Gorean's attitude toward it becomes clear when it is understood that one of a young tarnsman's first missions is often the capture of a slave for his personal quarters. When he brings home his captive, bound naked across the saddle of his tarn, he gives her over, rejoicing, to his sisters, to be bathed, perfumed and clothed in the brief slave livery of Gor. pg 51-52 Outlaw of Gor


Slave girls, by contrast, are almost never permitted veils. Similarly, they are usually clad in such a say that their charms are manifest and obvious to even the casual onlookers. This, aside from having such utilities as reminding the girls that they are total slaves and giving pleasure to the men who look upon them, is supposed to make them, rather than free women, the desiderated objects of capture and rapine. I think there is something to this theory for statistically, it is almost always the female slave and hot her free sister who finds herself abducted and struggling in the lashings of captors or slavers. On the other hand, in spite of the theories pertaining to such matters, free women are certainly not immune to the fates of capture and enslavement. Many men, despite the theories pertaining to such matters, and accepting the risks involved, enjoy taking them. Some slavers specialize in the capture of free women. Indeed, it is thought by some, perhaps largely because of the additional risks involved, and the interest in seeing what one has caught, that there is a special spice and flavor about taking them. Similarly it is said to be pleasant, if one has the time and patience, first to their horror and then to their joy, training them to the collar. pg. 42, Rogue of Gor.


I recalled hearing now, in the house, of "capture rights," respected in law. I had originally thought these rights referred to the acquisition of free women but I had later realized they must pertain, more generally, to the acquisition of properties in general, including slaves. I had not thought much about such things, in a real, or practical, sense, until now, now that I was outside of the house....Theft, or capture, if you prefer, conferred rights over me. I would belong to, and must fully serve, anyone into whose effective possession I came, even if it had been by theft. The original master, of course, has the right to try to recover his property, which remains technically his for a period of one week. If i were to flee the thief, however, after he has consolidated his hold on me, for example, kept me for even a night, I could, actually in Gorean law, be counted as a runaway slave, from him, even thought he did not technically own me yet, and punished accordingly. Analogies are that it is not permitted to animals to challenge the tethers on their necks, or flee the posts within which they find themselves penned...strictures of this sort, of course, do not apply to free persons, such as free women. A free woman is entitled to try to escape, as best she can, and without penalty, even after her first night in his bonds, if she chooses to do so. If she is enslaved, of course, then she is still subject to, and covered by, the same customs, practices and laws as any other slave. The point of these statutes is, it seems, to keep the slave in perfect custody, at all times, and to encourage boldness on the part of males. After the slave has been in the possession of the thief, or captor, for one week she counts as being legally his. To be sure, the original master may attempt to steal her back. A popular sport with young men is trying "chain luck." This refers to the capture of women, either free or bond, viewed as a sport. In war, of course, women on this world, slave and free, like silver and gold, rank high as booty. pp. 95-96, Dancer of Gor.




She was his by legitimate capture, and he could do with her whatever he pleased. Any court on Gor would have upheld this. pg. 15, Players of Gor.






Legal Imbondment



1. SUBMISSION:



A free woman may at any time submit herself to a free man as a slave.



In most cities, on the other hand, a free woman may, with legal tolerance, submit herself as a slave to a specific man. If he refuses her, she is then still free. If he accepts her, she is then, categorically, a slave, and he may do with her what he pleases, even selling her or giving her away, or slaying her, if he wishes. Here we may note a distinction between laws and codes. In the codes of the warriors, if a warrior accepts a woman as a slave, it is prescribed that, at least for a time, an amount of time up to his discretion, she be spared. If she should be the least displeasing, of course, or should prove recalcitrant in even a tiny way, she may be immediately disposed of. It should be noted that this does place a legal obligation on the warrior. It has to do, rather, with the proprieties of the codes. pg 21, Players of Gor



'You understand, do you not,' I asked the girl, 'the meaning of this?' 'Yes,' she said. 'You may freely enter into the state of bondage,' I told her, 'but you may not freely leave it. This thing, once it is done to you, is, one your part, irreversible. It is not then within your power to break, alter or amend it in any way. You will then, you see, no longer be a free person, but only a slave.' 'I understand,' she said. She then turned to the young man, 'I am ready,' she said, 'Make me a slave. pg 298, Blood Brothers of Gor



“Is it true that she begged bondage,” asked Boabissia, “that she chose slavery of her own free will?” “Yes,” I said. “What a fool,” said Boabissia. “Perhaps,” I said. To be sure, such a decision should not be made lightly. Such a decision may be made of one’s own free will, but it cannot be revoked by one’s own free will, for, after it is made, one is then helpless to alter or influence one’s new condition in any way. pg. 234, Mercenaries of Gor



They had declared themselves slaves. The slave herself, of course, once the declaration has been made, cannot revoke it. That would be impossible, for she is then only a slave. The slave can only be freed by one who is at the time her master, or, if it should be the case, her mistress. pg. 409, Explorers of Gor



The ritual of submission is for the free woman to kneel before the man, lower her head, extend her arms, wrists crossed, and speak words such as the following:



"I ___________ of (home stone) submit myself to ___________ of (home stone), as a slave, completely, his to do with as he pleases." pg. 183, Beasts of GOR Or, "I declare myself a slave, and I submit myself to you as my master." (used in the case of two Taluna who obviously had no home stone to declare) pg. 409, Explorers of Gor



I submit myself" to which the man replies, I accept your submission." pp. 93-94, Tarnsman of Gor.



He twisted her hair more. She winced, her back bent painfully. “Do you wish me to submit to you now?” she begged. “Do so,” said he. She fell to her knees before him, and lifted her head to regard him. “I will be your slave,” she said. Then, she knelt back on her heels, lowered her head, and lifted and extended her arms, wrists crossed, as though for binding. She was very beautiful. “I am your slave,” she said, “ –Master.” pg. 16, Hunters of Gor.



2. FORCED ENSLAVEMENT:



But what of captives upon whom slavery is forced? Is it a collar or is it a brand that makes a woman legally a slave?



“Forgive me, Mistress,” wept the girl. As far as I could see the new girl was not a slave. She was, at least, neither branded nor collared. On the other hand, doubtless she was destined to soon receive those lovely adornments proclamatory of the uncompromising condition of Gorean bondage, those adornments which so enhance the beauty of a woman, those adornments significatory that all institutional niceties pertinent to her bondage have been properly and legally completed. pg. 134, Mercenaries of GOR.



“Was it at Venna that you were legally imbonded?” I asked. “Yes,” she said, “it was there that the legal details were attended to. Our captors, quite rightly, adjudged us now ready for our brands and collars. The technicalities were attended to. We were legal slaves. pg. 338, Mercenaries of GOR.



“Have you been spoiled for freedom?” he asked her. “What you have done to me!” she wept. “I beg the brand! I beg it! Put the mark on me! Collar me! Confirm it on my body! Confirm it on me with fire and iron, and with the circlet of locked steel, for all the world to see, what you have done to me, what you have made me!”...“Do not shame me by keeping me free,” she said. “Mark and collar me, so that I may at last be free to be what I now know I am!” “Do you wish to feel the lash again, Lady Cara?” he asked. “No, Master,” she said, shuddering. It seemed to me that the woman, obviously, was now ready for enslavement. To be sure, whether it was to be granted to her or not was up to her captor. At any rate, whether she was to be put legally into slavery or not she was now clearly bond, psychologically, intellectually and emotionally. She would now never be anything else. pg. 148, Mercenaries of GOR.



While collar and brand are often spoken of together, it can be seen that a slave was not always branded. The brand is a requirement of Merchant Law, and therefore recognized by most Gorean cities, but not all individual Goreans practice it. Furthermore, the distinction must be made here that branding is a way of marking a legally imbonded slave. It is not something that by its very action "creates" a slave. It is always done to a collared slave, not to free women who are captives but have not yet received their collar. As evidence of this, the absence of a brand, clearly, does not make a girl any less a legal slave.



Some fellows do not brand their slaves,' I said. `That is stupid!' she said. `It is also contrary to the laws of most cities,' I said, `and to merchant law, as well.' pg 188 ,Vagabonds of GOR



The merchant regarded the girl at the wall..."Yes," he said. "I see that you are feminine. Accordingly, you will be appropriately branded." "Thank you, Master," she said. pg. 75, Savages of GOR.



Notice here the language: "brand their slaves." They are not speaking of branding captives, but slaves. A brand is a way of legally marking a slave as property. It is not, in itself, an act of legal imbondment. Indeed, sometimes a girl is not branded until she is sold. That fact makes her no less a slave up until the time she is branded:



Sometimes a girl is not branded until she is first sold. pg. 41, Tribesmen of Gor.



More often, it is the collar that is spoken of. A girl is collared or not collared, or is "collar meat" or is "ready for a collar" or words to that effect:



“Clearly she is fit for the collar,” said my hostess. “True,” I said. “But she is not yet in a collar. She is a mere free woman..." pg. 319, Mercenaries of GOR.



Or when Tarl raped the she-urt Sasi in Port Kar. Her plea to him, as a free woman was,



"Please, let me go," she said, "It will mean the collar for me" pg. 49, Explorers of GOR



Note that she does not say, "it will mean the brand for me." Then too, there is the free woman Tarl rescues from the Slave Brothel of Ludmilla, in Ar.



“Beware!” she said. “I am a free woman!” “Not really,” I said. “Not really?” she asked. “No,” I said. “You are really a slave. All you lack are some minor legal technicalities, such as a collar.” pg. 405, Mercenaries of GOR.



As further evidence, consider Tarl's actions in enslaving a free woman on his way to Lydius in Beasts of Gor. It is the act of placing a collar around her neck that enslaves her. A brand is not required for this simple task:



"If the beauty of your body matches that of your face," I said, "it is the collar for you." "It will be the collar for her, Master!" cried one of the slave girls, delightedly....The two girls lifted aside the free woman's robes, until she stood displayed before me. I walked around her. "Yes," I said, "it is the collar for you, Lady Constance."...."In my belongs, over there, " I said to one of the girls, she called Daphne, "there is a collar. Bring it."...."On your hands and knees, head down," I said to the Lady Constance. She assumed this posture, her blond hair hanging forward, downward, over her head. I roughly collared her and she sank moaning to her stomach in the grass...."Am I a slave?" she whispered. "Yes," I said. pp. 118-119, Beasts of GOR.



As can be seen, it is the simple act of placing a collar around her neck that makes her a slave. There is no need for a brand to accomplish this task. Of course, there has been brought up the issue of "coffle" collars. The argument being made that captive girls in coffle collars are not legally imbonded, and that therefore a collar does not result in legal enslavement. The misunderstanding here is that, on Gor, there is a difference between a "coffle collar" and a "slave collar." A coffle collar does NOT result in legal imbondment. It is simply a way of controlling a number of captives, as the following example shows:



I saw a chain snapped onto the common chain of the women. At the end of this shorter chain there was an open collar. It was then put about my neck and snapped shut. I touched it. I was now on the same chain with the other women...."I think you are a slave," he said. "I am not branded and collared," I reminded him, "except, of course, for the holding-chain collar." "We will do something about that," he said, "outside of Ar."....It was near dawn now. The wagon would turn east on the Argentum road, reach the Viktel Aria, and turn south. Then, in time, it would arrive in Ar. Soon I would be enslaved, legally. I would be, totally, legally, a slave on Gor. pp. 261-263 Kajira of GOR. (Coffle collars are described on pp. 135-136, Savages of Gor)



Consider too, the case of Tarl and the captive free woman of Ar's Station, in Renegades of Gor. He speaks of the possibility, even as a prisoner, of legally imbonding her, and he speaks of this as entirely separate from ordering her to submit herself to him. Obviously, as a prisoner himself, Tarl had no means of branding the woman. He could, however, with the materials at hand, fashion a crude collar.



Lady Claudia, of course, was not a slave, not a legal slave, at any rate. She was still, legally, a free woman. I had seen no point in imbonding her. Similarly, I had ordered her not to submit herself to me, of her own free will, even when she had begged to do so. pg. 215, Renegades of GOR.



It would seem clear then, from the foregoing, that it is the collar that enslaves a girl, not the brand. Of course, as we have also seen, some cities do not require a slave to have on her any evidence that she is a slave. This is made clear by Tarl's remark that Ar has an ordinance to this effect. (pp. 268-269, Kajira of GOR)). However, that does not change the fact that these slaves were, at some previous point, placed in a collar, and that now, for whatever reason, their master chooses to not enforce its wearing. It in no way, on its own, invalidates the findings made here.



3. BOND MAID CIRCLES:



A free woman who freely enters or is forced into a bond-maid circle becomes, by the laws of Torvaldsland, a bond-maid, a legally imbonded slave. This bond-maid circle does not have to be drawn on the territory of Torvaldsland itself, but anywhere the Torvaldslanders may raid. For instance, the following example comes from Kassau.



The women cried out in misery. To enter the circle, if one is a female, is, by the laws of Torvaldsland, to declare oneself a bond-maid. A woman, of course, need not enter the circle of her own free will. She may, for example, be thrown within it, naked and bound. However she enters the circle, voluntarily or by force, free or secured, she emerges from it, by the laws of Torvaldsland, as a bond-maid. pp. 44-45, Marauders of Gor.



As an aside, another legal precedent was set in Torvaldsland in the wake of the Kurii invasion. It was decided that any free woman collared by the Kurii were considered to have been legally imbonded in the eyes of the law.



The fixing of the Kur collar, it had been decided by Svein Blue Tooth, was equivalent to the fixing of the metal collar and, in itself, was sufficient to reduce the subject to slavery, which condition deprives the subject of legal status, and rights attached thereto, such as the right to stand in companionship. pg. 277, Marauders of Gor.

Punsihments

PUNISHMENT DESCRIPTION

Banishment Called being "denied bread, and fire, and salt" (pg. 142, Hunters of Gor)
In Port Kar, a punishment for thieves.

"Turgus of Port Kar," said the praetor, "in virtue of what we have here today established, and in virtue of the general warrant outstanding upon you, you are sentenced to banishment. If you are found within the limits of the city after sunset this day you will be impaled." (pg. 58, Explorers of Gor)

In Ar, used as a punishment for murder.

Ha-Keel had been banished from Ar. It has been a matter of murder. A woman had been involved. He had captured, raped and enslaved her, then selling her. (pg. 266, Fighting Slave of Gor).

Also inflicted for falsifying slave data (pg. 36, Explorers of Gor, pg. 67, Players of Gor)

Bastinado A punishment commonly inflicted on female slaves, for instance, if caught en flagrante delecto with a kajirus (pg. 445, Renegades of Gor) or for other infractions, such as returning home late. In it, the soles of the feet are beaten.
Similarly, it is no fun to be put on one's stomach and have one's feet, by the ankles, fastened over the six-inch high, seven foot-long metal tying bar, and then to have them spanked with a light, springy board. (p. 331, Kajira of Gor)

Beheading A common punishment for brigandage. The victim is stripped, tied to a post, beaten with rods, and then beheaded. It is an ancient modality of execution on Gor. (pp. 14-15, Renegades of Gor)
Also used and preceded by scourging, in the case of spies. (pg. 89, Vagabonds of Gor)

Boards In it the victim is fastened, by collars and shackles, on structures of parallel, upright boards, vertical platforms, in effect, mounted on posts. These structures are most common in harbor cities, near the wharves. (p. 14, Renegades of Gor)
Castration A punishment, followed by torture and impalement, commonly inflicted on spies. (pg. 89, Vagabonds of Gor)
Chain and Iron Collars Another common punishment for brigandage.
"Chain them and hand them in iron collars at the inn!" said a fellow. Sometimes a man lasts two or three days in this fashion. (p. 14, Renegades of Gor)

Dung sack Employed as a punishment for slave girls by the Wagon Peoples. The girl is placed in the sack and left to spend the night in it. (pg. 285, Nomads of Gor)
Ear Notching A punishment for theft inflicted on a free woman for her first offense. (pp. 47-49, Hunters of Gor)
Enslavement Inflicted on free women for a variety of reasons, including Conduct Indicating Suitability for a Collar (pg. 372, Renegades of Gor),
which covers a whole host of infractions, including nudity (pp. 367-368 Renegades of Gor, pg. 69 Magicians of Gor),

public sensuous dance (pg. 372 Renegades of Gor, 172 Dancer of Gor),

as well as for more mundane reasons, such as a second theft conviction (pp. 47-52 Hunters of Gor),

indigence (pg. 48 Hunters of Gor, pg. 372 Renegades), vagrancy (pg. 372 Renegades of Gor)

and debt (pg. 42, Renegades of Gor, pg. 275 Magicians of Gor, pg. 265 Kajira of Gor),

prostitution (pg. 372, Renegades of Gor).

and sometimes for treason by a free woman (pg. 131, Mercenaries of Gor)

Frame of Humiliation The death of a villain, a honorless death for a warrior. The victim is tied out on a wood frame and set adrift on a river. Before being set adrift on the Vosk, the victim is generally spat upon by custom, by the executioners.
The death would not be a pleasant one. Bound helplessly, without food or water, my own body would torture me by its weight dragging on the hand and ankle ropes, suspended a few inches above the roiling, muddy surface under the fiery sun. I knew that I would not, some days hence, reach the delta of the Vosk and the cities in the delta except as a bound corpse, withered by exposure and the lack of water. Indeed, it was unlikely I would reach the delta at all. It was far more likely that one of the water lizards of the Vosk or one of the great hook-beaked turtles of the river would seize my body and drag it and the frame under the water, destroying me in the mud below. (pp. 136-139, Tarnsman of Gor)

Hamstringing A punishment inflicted on a slave girl for a second attempt to escape. The tendons are severed behind her knees, leaving her crippled. (pg. 67, Hunters of Gor).
An alternative punishment is cutting the feet off (pg. 350, Explorers of Gor)

Hanging A punishment inflicted for treason as an alternative to impalement. (pg. 379, Renegades of Gor)
Impalement A punishment commonly inflicted for treason (pg. 379 Renegades of Gor, pg. 141 Mercenaries of Gor)
and theft of a Home Stone (pg. 154-157, Tarnsman of Gor).

Also for murder (pp. 382-383, Assassins of Gor)

as well as desertion from the army or spying (pg. 40, Mercenaries of Gor)

and falsification of slave data (pg. 67, Players of Gor).

Also for breaking a banishment, and preceded by torture (pg. 142, Hunters of Gor).

The pole is usually set up near a crossroads or some other frequently traveled location. It can be implemented for other reasons as well, for instance, in the example below, the fellow was traveling with false identity papers in time of war, so punished, apparently, as a spy. Also punishment for entering a city without permission,

As was wise I avoided cities in my long journey, though I passed several, for to enter a city without permission or without satisfactory reason is tantamount to a capital crime, and the punishment is usually a swift and brutal impalement. Pikes on the walls of Gorean cities are often surmounted with the remains of unwelcome guests. (pg. 49 Outlaw of Gor)

or found inside when a permit has expired:

"As we do have the yellow ostraka and our permits do not permit us to remain in the city after dark," said Marcus, "I think we should venture now to the sun gate." Marcus was the sort of fellow who was concerned about such things, being arrested, impaled, and such. (pg. 9, Magicians of Gor)

in which case the victim would be impaled above the city's gates. Another crime that draws this punishment is the attempted kidnapping or collaring of a free woman (pg. 51, Outlaw of Gor).

Attempting to change caste without permission of the Council of High Castes, or refusing to practice your livelihood, can also be punished with impalement (pg. 46, Tarnsman of Gor)

Yet another is falsifying slave data in lieu of banishing the criminal (pg. 36, Explorers of Gor) A description of this unpleasant punishment is included below:

...set off from the road a little, on our right, was the impaling pole we had seen from the cart. It was some six inches in diameter. On it was a small body. It had apparently been twisted and jerked until the point of the pole had emerged through the chest. It had then been drawn down the pole better than a yard. I could see some ribs erupted through the tunic. Its limbs were askew, hanging downward. The pole itself was red with blood (pg. 251, Mercenaries of Gor)

Mutilation Punishment for attempted kidnapping or collaring of a free woman, followed by impalement (pg. 51, Outlaw of Gor)
Penal Brothel A punishment in Port Kar that FW are sometimes sentenced to for theft. "
The Lady Sasi, of Port Kar," said the praetor, "in virtue of what we have here today established, and in virtue of the general warrant outstanding upon her, must come under sentence." "Please, my officer," she begged. "Please sentence me only to a penal brothel!" "The penal brothel is too good for you," said the praetor. (pg. 58, Explorers of Gor)

Scourging The same as whipping (q.v.). A punishment sometimes inflicted on a spy, if he is of good family, followed by beheading. (pg. 89, Vagabonds of Gor)
Shorn hair This is commonly inflicted on a slave girl in punishment. (p. 292 Kajira of Gor)
Slapping A punishment which may be inflicted upon a slave, but which is inappropriate for a free person.
"Release us!" demanded Boots Tarsk-Bit...The leader of the brigands, a bearded fellow, with a cloth wrapped about his head, lashed him across the mouth with the back of his hand.

This was inappropriate as Boots was a free person.

Staking or sleen death A punishment inflicted on free people or slaves, in particular by the Panther Girls of the Northern Forest. The victim is staked out and blood smeared on them to attract the sleen.
One on each arm they conducted her...to a place...in which we had placed four stakes...Mira was put on her back and her two ankles bound, widely apart, to two stakes. Then her wrists were unbound from behind her back and they, too, were bound widely apart, to two stakes...I handed my sleen knife to Vinca. Mira, blindfolded, felt the blade in her thigh...Mira, staked out, blindfolded, felt a woman's strong hand take the blood from her thigh and smear it across her belly and about her body. (pg. 231, Hunters of Gor)

Tarn Death A punishment inflicted for theft of a Home Stone. In this, the victim is bound hand and foot to two tarns, who then take flight in tandem. At a hundred feet, at a prearranged signal, the two tarns fly in opposite directions, tearing the victim apart. (pp. 158-160, Tarnsman of Gor)
Torn Apart In this fashion ropes are tied separately to the victim's wrists and ankles, these ropes then attached to the harnesses of two different tharlarion, which are, of course, then driven in opposite directions. (pg. 14, Renegades of Gor)
Torture When one who is a slave strikes a free person the penalty is not infrequently death by impalement, preceded by lengthy torture. (pg 74 Assassins of Gor). Also inflicted upon spies, after they are castrated and before impalement. (pg. 89, Vagabonds of Gor). Slaves may also be tortured for information. pg. 111 Tribesman of Gor, pg. 240 Mercenaries of Gor). The form of this torture is generally the rack:
The bodies of two girls, stripped, lay on the narrow rectangle, networks, of knotted ropes, on the racks. The hand were at their sides, but ropes were attached to them, and fixed on the axle of the windlass, above their heads. Both wore collars. Their ankles were roped to the foot of the device...Her wrists, and those of the other girl, as the long wooden handles turned, were pulled up and over her head. The red-haired girl writhed on the cords...At a sign from the judge the handle moved once, dropping the wooden pawl into the ratchet notch. Her body was now tight on the rack; her toes were pointed; her hands were high over her head, the rough rope slipped up her wrists, prohibited from moving further by its knots and the wide part of her hands. (pg. 111, Tribesmen of Gor)

Trampling Another punishment for brigandage. Generally carried out with tharlarion. The victim is trampled to death. (pg. 14, Renegades of Gor)
Use discipline The disciplinary rape of a slave, given in punishment for some infraction. (pp. 329-330, Magicians of Gor)
Also called the "whip of the furs" (pg. 423, Explorers of Gor)

Whipping A punishment regularly inflicted upon slaves both as punishment and to remind them of their status. (pg. 316, Explorers of Gor) .
..she would find herself under only the familiar, common five-stranded Gorean slave lash. Still it is not without reason that that implement is much favored on Gor for the disciplining of females. Without permanently marking the girl it punishes with excruciating, terrible efficiency. The mere sight of such a whip generally inspires terror in any female who has ever felt it. (pg. 208, Players of Gor).

It is a punishment not inflicted on free women who have not fallen captive or been made prisoner. In other words, for instance, a mouthy free woman is not subjected to whipping. She is free, she is above slave punishments.

The Lady Telitsia did not respond to the suggestion. She could afford to ignore it, disdainfully. She was not a slave. She was a free woman, and above whipping. (p. 135, Players of Gor)

However, men are whipped, both free and slave, and with a heavier whip. (See scourging)

To be sure, Boots had been beaten with a heavy whip, of the sort used on men, whereas she would find herself under only the familiar, common five-stranded Gorean slave lash. (pg 208, Players of Gor).

Blood is generally drawn when a man is whipped: I lay on the stones of the cell, naked, in blood, my wrists and ankles chained. I could scarcely move my body. I had received five strokes of the snake, wielded by a man. (pg. 78, Fighting Slave of Gor).

Serves



The Northern Style Serve

It must be noted that in the books of Gor, there are no detailed descriptions on how the slaves in the North serve. The serves in the book "Marauders of Gor" are swift and fast; they also show that the bondmaids enjoy certain liberties when it comes to serving.

Hints, Tips, and the basics of a Northern style serve

When a bondmaid serves, her focus is on getting food and drinks to the Jarl as quickly as possible while still being pleasing and enticing. The northern type of serve works best when many are present; they can be served quickly and in the midst of conversation, no need to put a whole room on pause for a serve.
An advantage is bondmaids are allowed to speak while serving to further entertain and please the Jarls. The only restriction to a slaves speech during service is: remember your place. A Jarl is not looking for a babbling slave, but simple chit-chat or banter to keep from being idle is acceptable.

To help you better understand the northern way let this girl point out a few things:


The most favored of drinks (Mead, paga and usually blackwine) are ready for the bondmaids. Heavy kettles simmer over the long fire pits and small serving tankards rest full upon heating plates just to the side of the flames along its length. The kettle is used to fill the tankard, the tankard to fill the horn.

The Jarls commonly rest upon benches at long tables.

House members will usually have with them their own horn, but each table is preset with vessels so guests can be easily and quickly served. No need to run to the kitchen to get a drinking vessel.

Within the Hall there is no severy, but a kitchen for preparing food items. Note: food items are cooked over the long fire in the main hall.

Within the Hall there is no chillery, all that is need kept cold is stored outdoors or in the ice shed


Now, keeping these things in mind we can move right along. As will be said again and again, do not wait to be called to serve, simply do so. Jump, up from your task after greeting an incoming Jarl, and immediately run to the fires to get a tankard of mead, paga, or whatever may be prefered. From here go to the Jarl and there entice him with the brew, asking if he might desire a drink. If he says yes, simply fill his vessel to the rim. Within the hall you will not need to be dismissed from service, so simply move right along unless the Jarl requests further attention.

A normall quick, efficient serve consists usually of well-rounded posts; these posts should be about two or three sentences long, but that can vary depending on your own personal style, the likes and dislikes of the Jarl, and the amount of people present. Your personal descriptions should be included in these posts as well as your movements and speech, so it is best too if you know what you want to do beforehand, if possible. It also helps to keep focus upon one physical atribute or action rather than trying to describe one's hair, eyes, hips, smile and movement within just three lines. Simply keep in mind that; in two posts, you should have:


Risen from your task
Approached the fire
Gathered the drink
Be before the Jarl
Inquiring if he would like a drink.



And in addition...this also may include having welcomed him to your home and engaging in a bit of chit-chat or friendly banter.

And at night, of course, they would serve the feasts of their masters, carrying and filling the great horns, and delighting them with the softness of their bodies in the furs.
Marauders of Gor -47


bond-maid serve to a Individual Jarl
“Mead!” I called. Pretty Ankles rushed to serve me. I again bent to kiss the lips of Thyri.
Marauders of Gor - 131

I handed the horn to Thyri, who, in her collar, naked, between two of the benches, knelt at my feet.
'Yes, Jarl,' said she, and ran to fill it, from the great vat. How marvelously beautiful is a naked, collared woman.
'Your hall,' said I to the Forkbeard, 'is scarcely what I had expected.'………………
………… 'Here, Jarl,' said Thyri, again handing me the horn. It was filled with the mead of Torvaldsland, brewed from fermented honey, thick and sweet.
Marauders of Gor - 89-90


bond-maid feast serve
Bera went to the next man, to fill his cup with the mead, from the heavy hot tankard, gripped with cloth, which she carried.
Marauders of Gor - 278

The two bond-maids, stripped, too like the others, for the feast, Pretty Ankles and Pouting Lips, struggled down the length of the smoky, dark hall, spitted, roasted tarsk on their shoulders. They were slapped by the men, hurrying them along, They laughed with pleasure, Their shoulders were protected from the heat of the metal spit by rolls of leather. The roasted tarsk was flung before us on the table. With his belt knife, thrusting Pudding and Gunnhild back, Ivar Forkbeard addressed himself to the cutting of the meat. He threw pieces down the length of the table.
Marauders of Gor -91



Southern Style serves


Serving the free is one of the most important tasks performed by the kajirae, it is done with attention to the Guest and to details of the serve. Details are important, but it is your style and grace that make the serve uniquely yours, try to "serve" from your heart, not a script or s 'series of steps to be done'.

In all steps, be sure to clarify very clearly who you are talking to, the pronouns Him and Her can get a bit confusing when one is trying to watch a serve and converse in the room. It is your charge to be sure there is no confusion in what you are doing and who you are doing it for.

There are variations of serves found at the different sites, this site does not claim to be the authority and end-all expert on serves and serving. But, girl is Gorean and can tell you what she feels and has learned from others and from doing.


Remember, as a kajira you are a very beautiful and desirable creature. Paint a picture of yourself as that sensuous and lovely kajira. Let the Guest enjoy your "vision" as you serve. Be sensuous but within limits, don't "tease" a Master if you do not plan to back it up.


Once you begin a serve that is where your attention and actions are to be focused. No other distractions should stray you from your course. Only an order from the Ubar or other Master in charge is to be acknowledged. Let the Guest know that He/She is the one your serve exists for.

Serving is often assigned/directed by the Ubar or his Designee.

There are several basic steps to a serve. These include:



1) approaching the guest
2) getting and acknowledging the order to serve
3) listening to, acknowledging the orders/instructions then rising
4) walking to the KITCHEN (may wish to wash hands first)
5) selecting the vessel/dishes
6) cleaning the vessel/dishes
7) preparing the order
Cool returning to the Guest
9) kneeling with the order
10) doing the actual serve
11) finishing the serve and departing.



When asked to serve, be prompt, acknowledge the command. Request to approach the Guest, then describe your movements from your rise to the approach and kneel before the Guest.


Kneel at a respectful distance then ask what you may serve or do for the Guest. Do not call to the Guest from across the room, it is lazy and rude to expect the Guest to be calling His/Her order to you.


Acknowledge the request you are given, it is often a good idea to repeat the request so that you and the Guest are sure it is correctly received. If it is something that varies in its serve as in temperature or could be served with additions, make it clear what your orders are before you rise.


Once you are sure of the request describe your rise, turn, and walk to the kitchen - what do you look like, how do you feel, what do you see? Paint a picture for the Guest to "see" you in service to Him/Her. Enjoy this, be this, feel this to your very soul.


Let the Guest know it is He/She you serve only, that He/She has your full and undivided attention. This is the point where you will either keep the Guest's interest or lose it. Do not pout in your serve if the guest seems to be paying little or no attention to you, He/She does not have to acknowledge your existence - but you, you have to serve with the heat of your belly, sister/brother, nothing but your best each time is acceptable.


Enter the KITCHEN, approach the shelves, take down or up whatever vessels/dishes you will need. Polish them with care. Make sure rims are safe. Describe your actions, the vessels, and the testing of them for safety. Use more than the sense of sight, include other senses, the more the better for the "sight" of the Guest - but still, do not bury Him/Her in words.


Move into preparing the order, gathering materials, going to locations where the items are that you need. If you work at the hearth, how does the warmth feel, what does it do to you? If in the cool room, how does the cold air affect you, what is it like to walk on the cold floor? Keep the floor plans in mind so serves are not confusing from one kajira to another.


Gather your items together, check for pleasing arrangements, be sure you have everything you will need at the actual serve. Again, have you included as many senses as you can without over doing the serve? Smells, colors, textures, sounds, don't overdo, but use them to assist the Guest.


Return to the Guest, describe your return, restate your focused attention on Him/Her. If you are carrying several things, how are you holding them? How do you feel at being able to bring Him/Her exactly what it is they ordered?


Kneel once more before the guest, as you slip into your kneel if you have a plate, slip it on the table beside the Guest. Keep the vessel in your hands for the actual serve. Describe your kneel and happiness at being there to serve Him/Her.


Complete the serve. You may need to add sugars, milk, or other parts to what is requested. (Hold the vessel against you to honor the moons of Gor if this is a custom in your channel.) Offer the vessel to the Guest. Utter words of hope for the Guest's enjoyment and pleasure in what you have served. Release the vessel to the Guest, return your hands to your thighs.
(Some channels require the girl to ask to test or prove the drink, this is not a custom in the books and is a type of insult to the Tavern/Inn Owner - that he would be so careless and risk the safety of his guests.)

Acknowledge any words of gratitude and praise, such words are not due you and are awarded only if the Guest feels you have earned them. Await further instructions. When you are dismissed, describe your rise and return to your position either by your Master or to the serving furs.



Those are the basics, you fill them in with your own style. Remember, you are painting a word picture for the Guest, the more complete your word picture, the more clearly the Guest can "see" what you are doing and enjoy the serve. Keep in mind the five senses, use them to help find words to paint your picture for the Guest.
Another thought here - use a vocabulary that does not distract and require a great deal of attention, after a few posts, some stop trying to decipher large words or overdone descriptions and analogies. You are there to please the Guest, not overwhelm with your ability to communicate with "five dollar words".
Enjoy serving, if you are not happy with what you are doing, it will show in your serve.
If a Guest is present that you are very uncomfortable serving, let the Master in charge become aware of this, you will not be required to make the serve if it is at all possible.


Serving Paga
In order to serve something well, it is a good idea to know about what it is you are serving.

Paga is a grain-based, fermented liquor which has not been distilled. It is an extremely high powered brewed beverage similar to a stout or sour mash wheat beer, very high in alcohol content. It has a strong beer scent. It can be served cold in the Camp which is not usual, then warm to hot, warm being more often preferred.

Sul Paga is similar to paga but it has been distilled, it is Gor's version of "moonshine", it can be served lumpy as it comes or strained. It is colorless and nearly odorless.
Paga is considered symbolic of physical love, lust.
Things you will need: *footed bowl*, *bota* if served warm (if served hot, ladle from the kettle on the fire, if cold, pour from the bota in the cool room before serving). Serving with a bota for warm paga, take the bota and fill the bowl at the Guest's feet.


Serving Ka-la-na

This is a wine made from the grapes of the Ka-la-na plants, the best coming from the City of Ar. It is a sweet strong wine. It can be served cold or warm. It comes as a red or blush pink wine, red usually served at room temperature, blush pink chilled. (There are white wines on Gor, however ka la na comes in shades of red).
This drink symbolizes romantic love.

Things you will need: *goblet*, *bota* if served at room temperature (if served hot, ladle at the fire; if served cold, fill in the cool room). When serving warm, take the bota and fill the goblet during the serve at the Guest's feet.



Serving Kal-da



This is a fairly inexpensive drink made from Ka-la-na mixed with fruits and spices. The fruit would be of the citrus variety with the "stinging" spices consisting of cinnamon, pepper extracts, etc. It is served hot, the kettle always bubbling over the hearth.


Kal-da is kept hot in the copper kettle over the hearth. Use the ladle to fill the *footed bowl* or *mug*.
Do not stir or dip the ladle deeply, the settlings at the bottom are too strong and bitter.



Serving Blackwine


Similar to Earth coffee, the beans were originally smuggled from Earth on early Voyages of Acquisition. The best are now grown on the slopes of the Thentis Mountains. It is very strong and thick. Blackwine is kept bubbling over the fire, always hot and aromatic.


Blackwine is prepared at the Camp in such a way that one does not need to strain it.
Blackwine can be served as 1st slave - with sugars and cream or, 2nd slave - black.
Things you will need include *mug*, *tray*, white and yellow *sugar bowls*, *spoon* , *vessel* of bosk cream or milk.
Ladle it from the kettle at the fire, remember, it has a strong aromatic odor.



Serving Gorean Ale

Ale is a deep gold honey lager, brewed from grains and hops from Urth.
You will need *goblet*, fill from *keg* in cool room.



Serving Mead


Mead is an alcohol fermented from honey. Use a *drinking horn* and fill from *cask* in cool room.



Serving Saiahalayb

This is a very potent brew made from fermenting the milk of the kaiila. It may contain lumps or be strained free of them. Made by the desert peoples, it is kept in a wooden cask - lift the lid to ladle it out. Serve in bowl, goblet, or horn.


Serving Bazi Tea - the "Heif"


This serve is not the bazi tea celebration serve.
The bazi tea is a rich aromatic tea. It has a pure dark color and its aroma is rich and full. The taste is smooth yet strong, never bitter.

You will need a *tray, the *tea - ground or leaves, the three small *cups, the shiny copper *teapot, boiling *water, the small yellow and white *sugar bowls, and *spoon.

You may make the tea by placing the leaves/ground tea and sugars into the tea pot at the hearth and adding the hot water, it will seep as you bring it to the serve.
Set the tray between the Masters you are serving, then pour the first cup half full. This one you offer to your Ubar, to prove it safe for the guest, in your wishes to him be sure to speak of this.
When he has tasted it and found it satisfactory (and proved its safety to His Guest), set the cup he used on the tray upside down.
Then pour a mouthful of tea in the second cup, offer it to the guest to see if it pleases his palate. If he approves, take the cup from him, place it upside down. Pour the third cup full and serve it to him.
((girl thinks the friendship and sharing of this time should be brought into the serve, the acknowledgement that you know this is a special time when two or more Free share a beverage in relaxed comfort.
Bring honor to your Master with your insight of the meaning of this time and your respect of it.))

Vegetation Of Gor

Gor, like any planet, has it own brand of plant life. Below is a list of the plant life, on Gor.

Brak Bush-

"Almost all doors, including that of the House of Cernus, had nailed to them some branches of the Brak Bush, the leaves of which, when chewed, have a purgative effect."

~Assassin of Gor, page 211~



Carpet Plant-

"I then cut some leaves and wrapped them about it. I tied this simple bandage shut with the tendrils of a carpet plant." ~Explorer of Gor, page 347~



Dina-

"The dina is a small, lovely, multiply petalled flower, short-stemmed, and blooming in a turf of green leaves, usually on the slopes of hills, in the northern temperate zones of Gor; in its budding, though in few other ways, it resembles a rose; it is an exotic, alien flower; it is also spoken of, in the north, where it grows more frequently, as the slave flower."

~Slave Girl of Gor, page 61~



Fan Palm-

"One type of palm, the fan palm, more than twenty feet high, which spreads its leaves in the form of an open fan, is an excellent source of pure water, as much as a liter of such water being found, almost as though cupped at the base of each leaf's stem."

~Explorer of Gor, page 310~



Flahdah

"Occasionally we passed a water hole, and the tents of nomads. About some of these water holes there were a dozen or so small trees, flahdah trees, like flat-topped umbrellas on crooked sticks, not more than twenty feet high; they are narrow branched with lanceolate leaves."

~Tribesmen of Gor, page 72~



Flaminium-

"There was a shallow bowl of flowers, scarlet, large-budded, five-petalled flaminiums, on the small, low table between us."

~Hunters of Gor, page 154~



Gieron-

"My pursuit of you was foiled," I said, "by the results of the drug you placed in my paga. "The drug," said Shaba, "was a simple combination of sajel, a simple pustulant, and gieron, an unusual allergen. Mixed they produce a facsimile of the superficial symptoms of Bazi plague."

~Explorers of Gor, page 154~



Kanda-

"Kutaituchik absently reached into a small golden box near his right knee and drew out a string of rolled kanda leaf. The roots of the kanda plant, which grows largely in desert regions on Gor, are extremely toxic, but, surprisingly, the rolled leaves of this plant, which are relatively innocuous, are formed into strings and, chewed or sucked, are much favored by many Goreans"

~Nomads of Gor, page 43~



Kes shrub-

"The principal ingredients of Sullage are the golden Sul, the starchy, golden- brown vine-borne fruit of the golden- leaved Sul plant; the curled, red, ovate leaves of the Tur-Pah, a tree parasite, cultivated in host orchards of Tur trees; and the salty, blue secondary roots of the Kes Shrub, a small, deeply rooted plant which grows best in sandy soil."

~Priest-Kings of Gor, page 45~



Leech-

"Two fangs had struck into my calf. An ost, I thought! But the fangs held fast, and I heard the popping, sucking sound of the bladder like seed pods of a leech plant, as they expanded andcont- racted like small ugly lungs. The leech plant strikes like a cobra, and fastens two hollow thorns into its victim. The chemical responses of the bladder like pods produce a mechanical pumping action, and the blood is sucked into the plant to nourish it."

~Outlaw of Gor, page 33~



Liana Vine

"Another useful source of water is the liana vine. One makes the first cut high, over one's head, to keep the water from being withdrawn by contraction and surface adhesion to the vine. The second cut, made a foot or so from the ground, gives a vine tube which, drained, yields in the neighborhood of a liter of water."

~Explorers of Gor, page 310~



Needle Tree-

"And the needle trees, the evergreens for masts and spars and cabin and deck planking."

~Raiders of Gor, page 141~



Palm Tree-

"There is an incredible variety of trees in the rainforest, how many I cannot conjecture. There are, however, more than fifteen hundred varieties and types of palm alone."

~Explorers of Gor, page 310~



Rence-

" Then, from within the collar, he drew forth a thin, folded piece of paper, rence paper made from the fibers of the rence plant, a tall, long-stalked leafy plant which grows predominantly in the delta of the Vosk. I suppose, in itself, this meant nothing, but I naturally thought of Port Kar, malignant, squalid Port Kar."

~Nomads of Gor, page 49~



Rep-

"Rep is a whitish fibrous matter found in the seed pods of a small, reddish, woody bush, commercially grown in several areas, but particularly below Ar and above the equator."

~Raiders of Gor, page 10~



Sim-

"I did not know at the time but Gur is a product originally secreted by large, gray, domesticated, hemispheric arthropods which are, in the morning, taken out to pasture where they feed on special Sim plants, extensive, rambling, tangled vine-like plants with huge, rolling leaves, raised under square energy lamps fixed in the ceilings of the broad pasture chambers."

~Priest-Kings of Gor, page 214~



Sip root-

"A bitter root whose extract is the active ingredient in slave wine."

~Blood Brothers of Gor, page 319~



Talender-

"The talender is a flower which, in the Gorean mind, is associated with beauty and passion. Free Companions, on the Feast of their Free Companionship, commonly wear a garland of talenders. Sometimes slave girls, having been subdued, but fearing to speak, will fix talenders in their hair, that their master may know that they have at last surrendered themselves to him as helpless love slaves."

~Raiders of Gor, page 217~



Telekint-

"The drover threw back the hood of his burnoose, and pulled down the veil about his face. Beneath the burnoose he wore a skullcap. The rep-cloth veil was red; it had been soaked in a primitive dye, mixed from water and the mashed roots of the telekint; when he perspired, it had run; his face was stained."

~Tribesmen of Gor, page 83~



Tem-

"There was also, at one side of the garden, against the far wall, a grove of tem-wood, linear, black, supple."

~Nomads of Gor, page 15~



Teslik-

"A plant whose extract is the active ingredient in breeding wine."

~Blood Brothers of Gor, page 320~



Thentis Needle Tree-

"That scent, I knew, a distillation of a hundred flowers, nurtured like a priceless wine, was a secret guarded by the perfumers of Ar. It contained as well the separated oil of the Thentis needle tree; an extract from the glands of the Cartius river urt; and a preparation formed from a disease calculus scraped from the intestines of the rare Hunjer Long Whale" ~Marauders of Gor, page 114~



Thorn Bush-

"Like the camps of many nomads the camp was on high ground, which commanded the terrain, but was itself concealed among scrub brush and boulders. There was a corral of thorn brush, uprooted and woven together, which served for kaiila."

~Tribesmen of Gor, page 137~



Tur Tree-

"There was one large-trunked, reddish Tur tree, about which curled its assemblage of Tur-Pah, a vine like tree parasite with curled, scarlet, ovate leaves, rather lovely to look upon; the leaves of the Tur-Pah incidentally are edible and figure in certain Gorean dishes, such as sullage, a kind of soup; long ago, I had heard, a Tur tree was found on the prairie, near a spring, planted perhaps long before by someone who passed by; it was from that Tur tree that the city of Turia took its name."

~Nomads of Gor, page 217~



Tur-Pah-

"The principal ingredients of Sullage are the golden Sul, the starchy, golden- brown vine-borne fruit of the golden- leaved Sul plant; the curled, red, ovate leaves of the Tur-Pah, a tree parasite, cultivated in host orchards of Tur trees;"

~Priest-Kings of Gor, page 45~



Veminium, Desert-

"The petals of veminium, the "Desert Veminium" purplish, as opposed to the "Thentis Veminium," bluish, which flower grows at the edge of the Tahari, gathered in shallow baskets and carried to a still, are boiled in water. The vapor which boils off is condensed in oil. This oil is used to perfume water. This water is not drunk, but is used in middle and upper-class homes to rinse the eating hand."

~Tribesmen of Gor, page 50~



Veminium, Thentis-

"The atmosphere of the pool was further charged with the fragrance of Veminium, a kind of bluish wild flower commonly found on the lower slopes of the Thentis range."

~ Assassin of Gor, page 163~



Verr Grass-

"On the shaded sides of some rocks, and the shaded slopes of hills, here and there, grew stubborn, brownish patches of verr grass."

~Tribesmen of Gor, page 71~

Music of Gor

"The three Musicians bent to their instruments, and, in a moment, there were again the sounds of a paga tavern, the sounds of talk, of barbaric music, of pouring paga, the clink of bowl, the rustle of bells on the ankles of slave girls."
~Assassin of Gor, page 9


Musicians on Gor are never enslaved; they may, of course, be exiled, tortured, slain and such; it is said, perhaps truly, that he who makes music must, like the tarn and the Vosk gull, be free.

"I have never on Gor seen any written music; I do not know if a notation exists; melodies are passed on from father to son, from Master to apprentice."

Cymbals - There are various sorts similar to the ones found on Earth.

Czehar - Musical instrument consisting of a flat, oblong box, having 8 strings, it is held across the lap when sitting cross-legged and is played with a horn pick; similar to a Japaniese koto.


Double Flute- "There was suddenly near us, startling us, another skirl of notes on a flute, the common double flute."
~Magicians of Gor, page 120~

Flute - Same as Urth flute and the players always keep them polished.


gourds - filled with pebbles


Kalika - A six-stringed instrument; it, like the czehar, is flat-bridged and its strings are adjusted by means of small wooden cranks; on the other hand, it less resembles a low, flat box and suggests affinities to the banjo or guitar, though the sound box is hemispheric and the neck rather long; it, too, of course, like the czehar, is plucked.

Kaska - A small hand drum.

Lyre - "Miles of Vonda then picked up the lyre, which she had used earlier in entertaining us. With its strap he slung the small, lovely, curved, stringed instrument about her body, the strap over her right shoulder, the instrument behind her left hip. The delicacy of the instrument, with its suggestion of refinement, gentility and civilization, contrasted nicely with the barbarity of her luscious, enslaved nudity, the shreds of her tunic and her helpless, steel-clasped wrists."
~Guardsman of Gor, page 271~

Red Hunter's Drum- The drum of the red hunters is large and heavy. It has a handle and is disk like. It requires strength to manage it. It is held in one hand and beaten with a stick held in the other. Its frame is generally of wood and its cover, of hide, usually tabuk hide, is fixed on the frame by sinew. Interestingly the drum is not struck on the head, or hide cover, but on the frame. It has an odd resonance. That drum in one hand of the hunter standing now in the midst of the group was some two and one half feet in diameter.


Sistrum - This instrument was mentioned in the funeral procession of Ivar Forkbeard in the temple of the Initiates of Kassau. It was an ancient musical instrument, kind of like a rattle in shape combined with the idea of a modern tambourine. It had two basic designs, the naos and the hoop. Most late period were of the hoop design. Most commonly it featured a representation of Het-Hert (Hathor) on the handle. It was used in sacred rituals, most particularly for Het-Hert but later associated with Imen (Amun) and Aset (Isis). It was most particularly used by the women musicians and chantresses who served in the temple, and the sound was believed to ward off the powers of chaos.

Notched stick - Played by sliding a polished tem-wood stick across its surface.

slave bells - tiny bells which give off a sensual shimmer of sound; threaded by the dozen on thongs or chains, they may be tied or locked around a girl's ankles or wrists, or attached to her collar; are worn or removed only at the whim of a Master

Tabor - A small drum.

Tambourine - Bits of metal on wires; gourds filled with pebbles and slave bells mounted on hand rings.

Tarn Drums-
"The sound of the great tarn drums reached us, those huge drums whose signals control the complex war formations of Gor's flying cavalries." ~Tarnsman of Gor, page 130~

Trumpet - "We heard music in the distance, trumpets, drums, and cymbals."
~Captive of Gor, page 209~

Whistle, herlit-bone- "These rattles were then joined by the fifing of whistles, shrill and high, formed from the wing bones of the taloned Herlit." ~Blood Brothers of Gor, page 40~

Zills - Finger cymbals.

The Geography Of Gor

It is unlikely that you will ever need to know any of the geography, of Gor, for real life. However, it is still important that you know something of the geography of Gor, if you are to be a well round, and properly educated kajira. The Geography is extensive so I do not expect you will memorize everything from this page, but you should try and learn some of the information on this page.



There are hundreds of known cities on Gor yet many of them remain unnamed in the books. The following is a list of numerous cities, towns, villages and other civilized settlements on the mainland of Gor. Each listing is brief and does not go into all the details of that area.



On the bottom of this page is a link to a very large map of Gor. While there are no actual maps in the books, Marcus Of Ar (as he is known online) created a very good interpretation based off descriptions on the book.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cities/Towns/Villages


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ar:

This might be the largest and most glorious city on Gor. It is situated low in the temperate latitudes in the northern hemisphere. The city is located south of the Vosk River and north of the Cartius River. Ar claims the land between the Vosk and the Cartius. Ar tarnsmen do not fly south of the Cartius. There is a swamp forest to the north border of Ar. Ar is the hereditary enemy of Ko-ro-ba. It is also an enemy of Cos and Tyros. Ar claims the southern shore of the Vosk. As Ar has no port, the Vosk is very important. Ar is a central city containing the Home Stones of a dozen other cities. It has become an empire. It is composed of more than a hundred thousand cylinders and bridges. Its population is thought to be about two to three million free people.



Ar's Station:

This was established around 10114 C.A., by the city of Ar, as an outpost and trading station on the south bank of the Vosk River. It commands the northern terminus of the Viktel Aria (Ar's Triumph), also known as the Vosk Road.



Argentum:

This city is an ally of Ar and an enemy of Corcyrus and Cos. Argentum is very southwest of Ar. Cladius is Ubar of Argentum. The city claims ownership of nearby silver mines that might be as rich as those of Tharna.



Bazi:

This is a free coastal port which make commerce possible with Cos and Tyros and the land based cities. The people are brown skinned. It was struck by a plague for a couple years.



Besnit:

This is a small city within a hundred pasangs of Esalinus and Harfax. It is an ally of Harfax. Besnit does not upkeep its roads in order to isolate itself. It is next to impossible to reach the city in the spring due to the rains.



Brundisium:

This is a port on the coast of Thassa, a hundred pasangs or so south of the Vosk delta. It was initially an ally of Ar but was conquered by Cos during the Cos/Ar war. There are eleven towers in the city and it is one of the largest and busiest ports in its area.



Clearus:

This is a village in the realm of Tor.



Corcyrus:

This is a city southwest of Ar, and to the east and somewhat north of Argentum. The ocean is more than one thousand pasangs to the west. It was once ruled by Sheila, a Tatrix. It was allied with Cos.



Esalinus:

This city is within a hundred pasangs of Besnit and Harfax.



Fina:

This town is part of the Vosk League. It is located east of Ar's Station.



Forest Port:

This town is a part of the Vosk League. It is located on the northern bank and is east of Ar's Station.



Fort Haskins:

Located at the foot of the Boswell Pass, this is a military outpost of Thentis though it has now become mostly a trading post.



Fortress of Saphronicus:

This is a small merchant polis and it has four tributary villages.



Hammerfest:

This town is part of the Vosk League. It is located west of Ar's Station.



Harfax:

These include Port Cos, Victoria, Turmus, Ven, Tetrapoli, Tafa, Fina, Ragnar's Hamlet, Hammerfest, Sulport, Sais, Siba, Jasmine, Point Alfred, Jort's Ferry, Forest Port, Iskander, Tancred's Landing and White Water. Ar did not permit Ar's Station to join the League. Its headquarters are in Victoria. Its purpose is to protect against river piracy. After the Vosk League was formed, institutionalized piracy on the Vosk had been largely removed. The topaz used to be a pledge symbol, used among pirates, when combining for massive assaults. The topaz was captured by the Vosk League and now is a private pledge between Port Cos and Ar's Station. The topaz is broken into two fragments of polished stone. When joined together, the discolorations on each piece make the picture of a river galley. White Water: This town is part of the Vosk League. It is downriver of the Olni and near Lara. It is the farthest east town and is on northern bank..

GEOGRAPHY

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bodies of Water/Waterways

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cartius River:

This is an important subequatorial waterway. It flows west by northwest, entering the tropical rainforests, and empties into Lake Ushindi. The Thassa Cartius and the subequatorial Cartius are not the same river. It is a broad and swift flowing tributary of the Vosk..



Issus River:

This is a northwestward flowing river, a tributary to the Vosk. It is more than one hundred pasangs from Torcodino which uses aqueducts to bring water from this river.



Kamba River:

Kamba is an inland word, not Gorean, and means "rope." It flows directly into Thassa. It is a wide leisurely river located in the jungles near Schendi.



Lake Ias:

This is located near Corycus.



Lake Ngao:

Ngao is an inland word, not Gorean, and means "shield." It is larger than Lake Ushindi. It is a vast, deep, long, oval lake. It is fed by a major river called the Ua River. It is located in the jungles near Schendi.



Lake Shaba:

This lake was unknown until discovered in Explorers of Gor. It is a large lake and the source of the Ua. It is named after the geographer who discovered it. There are the ruins of an ancient civilization on its shore.



Lake Ushindi:

Ushindi is an inland word, not Gorean, and means "victory." This lake is drained by the Kamba and Nyoka rivers. To the west of Lake Ushindi are flood lands, marshes and bogs. It is located in the jungles near Schendi..



Laurius River:

This is a winding, long, gentle, slow river. It flows in a generally westerly direction though it inclines some to the southwest emptying into Thassa at the free port of Lydius. Only common ships seen here are light galleys and barges. Above Laura, the river is less navigable, especially in the late summer.



Lower Fayeen River:

This is a tributary of the Cartius, located west of Tor.



Nyoka River:

Nyoka is an inland word, not Gorean, and means "serpent." Nyoka flows into Schendi harbor and thence to Thassa. It is a wide leisurely river.



Olni River:

This is a tributary of the Vosk, located north of Tharna. The cities of the Salerian Confederation are located on this river..



Tamber Gulf:

The Vosk River empties here into Thassa. Port Kar is located in this gulf.



Thassa Cartius River:

This river is a tributary of the Vosk. It drains the Ven highlands and has its own tributaries.



Ua River:

Ua is an inland word, not Gorean, and means "flower." It is a major river, at least as big as the Vosk. There are many cataracts on the Ua which make it very difficult to cross. Its source is Lake Shaba.



Upper Fayeen River:

This is a tributary of the Cartius..



Verl River:

This is a tributary of the Vosk that flows northwestward into the Vosk.



Vosk delta:

The delta is a treacherous are and difficult to navigate. Its channels change almost overnight and is often little more than a trackless marsh. There is little visibility due to the rence plants. Its sluggish, muddy waters vary from a few inches deep to deep enough for a ship. The average depth, after the spring thaws upriver, is three to five feet. It is teeming with wildlife. The eastern portion has fresh water. The delta is claimed by Port Kar which lies some hundred pasangs from its northwest edge, bordering on the shallow Tamber Gulf. The delta is at least over four to five hundred pasangs long. Ships from Thassa cannot pass through the delta to the Vosk River due to the delta's almost impassibility..



Vosk River:

This is a mighty river, some forty pasangs in width, that passes by Ar and pours into the Tamber Gulf. The Vosk is below Ko-ro-ba and north of Ar. Most towns on the river are free states and belong to the Vosk League. River ships of Ar and Cos battle here for influence over the river and its towns. The southern bank is much less populous than the northern bank..

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mountains/Hills

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hills of Eteocles:

These are located southwest of Corcyrus. Springs in the hills feed aqueducts for Torcodino.



Fulvians Hills:

These are the foothills of the Voltai and are northeast of Ar.



Hrimgar Mountains:

Hrimgar means "Barrier" mountains. It is really two mountain chains. Axe Glacier lies in a valley between them. There are many passes in these mountains. One such is called the pass of Tancred because that is where the herd passes through. These mountains are both east and north of Torvaldsland.



Sardar Mountains:

This range is the home of the Priest-Kings. It is more than a thousand pasangs from Ko-ro-ba. The Sardar fairs occur at the base of the mountains four times a year..



Ta-Thassa Mountains:

These are located on the shore of Thassa, in the southern hemisphere.



Thentis Mountains:

This range is the home of the city of Thentis. There are passes through the mountains to the Barrens, the lands of the Red Savages..



Voltai Range:

These are also known as the Red Mountains. They are located south of the Vosk and east of Ar. They are dull reddish cliffs due to large deposits of iron oxide. They are the greatest mountain range on known Gor. You can see the spires of Ar from the nearer Voltai ranges. The Voltai is home to several bandit cities and bands of outlaws including Treve.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Forests

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Forests of Northern Gor:

This is the largest forest area on Gor. It covers hundreds of thousands of square pasangs. The most typical tree is the lofty, reddish Tur tree that may grow to two hundred feet or more. They are north of Laura and no one knows how far east they go. They extend north to Torvaldsland, past the northern ridges of the Thentis Mountains. The forests are home to various outlaws, forest people and panther girls.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Roads

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Argentum Road:

This road goes from Argentum east to the Viktel Aria, which then leads south to Ar.



Clearchus Road:

This road leads from the southwest to the Sardar, once a common route to the Fairs. It is north of the new Cyprianus Road. The Clearchus Road passes for several pasangs through the Clearchus woods, a haunt of brigands. It is also called the West Road. It is graveled and rutted, sometimes paves with logs and plated stone. It can be impassable in rainy weather and dusty in dry, warm weather. The edge of the woods of Clearchus are about two hundred pasangs from the fairgrounds of the Sardar.



Cyprianus Road:

This was named for the engineer in charge of building it. It lead to the Sardar fairs from the southwest. It reduced traffic on the Clearchus road, which had always been a dangerous road. The Cyprianus also passes through less rough terrain. Cyprianus is also called the New West Road. It is graveled and rutted, sometimes paved with logs and plated stone. It can be impassable in rainy weather and dusty in dry, warm weather.



Eastern Way:

This is also called the Treasure Road. It links the western cities with Ar. Torcodino is on this road.



Genesian Road:

This road is south of Samnium. It connects Brundisium and other coastal cities with the south. From Torcodino, you go north on this road to Brundisium.



Northern Salt Line:

This is an east/west road. Torcodino is on this road.



Northern Silk Road:

This is a north/south road. Torcodino is on this road.



Pilgrim's Road:

This road leads to the Sardar. Torcodino is on this road.



Viktel Aria:

This means "Ar's Triumph" or "The Triumph of Ar" and is also known as the Vosk Road. It is the most direct route from Ar to the Vosk. It is a military road. It is wide and built like a wall set into the earth. It is marked with pasang stones. There are deep ditches along much of the road except for crossroads and turn-offs, to make it harder to bring supply wagons onto the road from the east and west..


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Other Regions

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Barrens:

The Barrens are vast tracts of rolling grasslands east of the Thentis Mountains. There are no large bodies of water and rainfall is reduced. The grass can grow to heights of several feet. In the winter there can be terrible blizzards and in the summer, extreme heat and droughts. There may also be sudden storms, tornadoes, flash floods, and hail storms. The Barrens are the home of the Red Savages, similar to the Native Americans of North America. No white man has ever penetrated to the eastern edge of the Barrens. The Red Savage culture is nomadic, based on the kaiila. There are a few tribes that have not mastered the kailla and some tribes that use tarns. They depend on the kailiauk for their lives, for food, clothing, shelter, tools and weapons. Almost all tribes hate whites.


Equatorial Rain forests:

There are jungles on the equator near the city of Schendi. There are many villages in the jungles and most of their inhabitants do not speak Gorean. They speak a number of different inland dialects. Fishing is a major source of livelihood for many. Bila Huruma is a black Ubar who has united the six ubarates of the southern shore of Lake Ushindi. The Ukungu villages lay to the northeast on the coast. It is a country of coastal villages speaking the same or similar dialects. The central village is Nyundo. Talunas, pygmies and cannibals also inhabit the jungles. The rainforest is also the home of a myriad of wildlife..


Plains of Turia:

The Plains are also called the Land of the Wagon Peoples. The Wagon Peoples claim the southern prairies from Thassa and the Mountains of Ta-Thassa to the southern foothills of the Voltai Range. To the north, they claim lands to the rush grown banks of the Cartius River. The Wagon Peoples consist of four separate tribes: the Paravaci, Kataii, Kassars, and the Tuchuks. The Peoples are primarily herders of bosk, living off their meat and milk. They do not grow any food and will eat nothing of the earth. They are very proud and regard city dwellers as vermin in holes.


Polar Cap:

The northern polar region is the home of the Red Hunters, a people similar to the Eskimos of Earth. The red hunters live as nomads, depending on the migration of certain animals including the tabuk and four varieties of sea sleen. Little is known of them. The polar seas are frozen half the year. Icebergs, also called ice mountains, are a constant threat. The red hunters are generally kind, peaceable folk. They call themselves Innuit which means "the People." They live in scattered, isolated communities and war is largely unknown. The polar north is very dry. Less snow falls there than in lower latitudes. The snow that does fall is less likely to melt. Most of the land is tundra, a cool, generally level or slightly wavy, treeless plain. In the summer, the tundra is soft and spongy due to mosses, shrubs and lichen. In the winter, it is desolate and barren. White pelted Kur, called ice beasts by the red hunters, also live in the polar region..

Tahari:

Located southeast of Ar, below the eastern foothills of the Voltai, and to the south is the Tahari. This is a desert area also known as the Wastes, or the Emptiness. It is shaped like a gigantic, lengthy trapezoid with eastward leaning sides. At its northwest corner is Tor. The area east of Tor is hundreds of pasangs in depth, maybe thousands. It is generally rocky and hilly, save in the dune country. It is almost constantly windblown by a hot wind and waterless. There are oases fed from underground rivers flowing southeast from the Voltai range. The water erupts in oases springs or is reached by deep well, down to two hundred feet. The day temperatures in the shade are 120 degrees. The oasis communities number from a hundred to thousands of people and are often hundreds of pasangs apart from each other. They depend on caravans for their needs..

Torvaldsland:

This area is commonly taken to start with the thinning of the great forest trees northward. It is northwest up the coast from the Vosk delta. The Skerry of Einar, by the Rune-Stone of the Torvalds mark, marks the boundary of the Torvaldsland and the south. The Stream of Torvald, a current, moves eastward to the coast and then north. It is like a broad river in the sea, pasangs wide. The temperature is warmer than the surrounding water and helps warm Torvaldsland. The people couldn't live without this stream. Torvaldsland is a cruel, harsh, and rocky land. Arable soil is thin and found in patches. Good soil is rare and highly prized. Though not treeless, it is a bleak land. Ka-la-na and temwood cannot grow there and are highly prized. The men are inured to the cold, accustomed to war and the labor of the oar. They are raised from boyhood on steep, isolated farms near the sea. They hold to old gods, like Odin and Thor. They are much like the Vikings of Earth.
