OOC Dance in Teletus

The most popular event you will see in gor, hands down is OOC dances. Almost every gorean sim you go to has an OOC area, with a dance floor in it. Some places even have regular ones, like even weekly. Most of the time they are themed, like schoolgir/boy, costume, biker, holiday etc. This one was impromtu. We seem to be having alot of those here in teletus. I am the one in pink,it's a Marilyn Monroe sl remake(diamonds are girl's best friend). Whenever I do something on earth or OOC I go retro.

Slave hunts and broom fights in Teletus

The night was going rather slow so to shake things up our Regent decided to throw a slave hunt. In Gor this can be a very popular event. How the slave hunt goes. You have several slaves and several Masters gather in one place. We started in our arena. The girls gathered at the gate and the men at the back of the arena. The gates were open the girls ran out. Our regent then counted to ten and then men ran out in pursuit. This is a fun game to watch and everyone truly enjoys themselves.



Our first round was won by Jas Carter and Tania


Our second round was won by Jas Carter and Dracaeno Donat


It was then that our Regent, Anjali Cazalet decided to shake things up. We had a broom fight. But this time she did things a little different. The girls were given brooms, and the men were forced to give up there weapons. The girls then chased the men around the arena the brooms.


All in all it was a fun event, and an impromtu one at that. Which we plan to have more of these events, and hope to see you there.

The Sardar Fair

I believe this is going to be an annual event. The first event I saw was an archery event. This is one the most popular events found in gorean sims, and the prizes for event like this can go in the thousands. These were watched over by Dingo Night

The first was between Aradon Psaltery, sword of Ko-ro-ba and the Ubar of Ko-ro-ba, Scar Statosky and the winner was Aradon.

The second one was entered by….
Capton Jacobs-the Ubar of Black Tarn Estate and Island( the first gorean sim in sl)
Darkstorm Llwellyn 1st sword of Tampica
Anthony 71 Jiminy warrior of Tampica
Thomasbee Oh warrior of Tampica
Pepper Iwish Al’Aar Shas Huntress

The winner was Darkstar Lwwellyn. I was personally rooting for Pepper. I mean hey in a man’s world we girls have to stick together, be we fw, panther, or Kajira.

The next even t was the Tharlarion races entered by…
Lady Vivienne Daguerre
Darkstorm Llwellyn 1st sword of Tampica
Thomasbee Oh 2nd sword of Tampica

And I am so proud to say was won by Lady Vivienne Dagurerre. This one was won for the woman of Gor.

Then it was on to Wrestling. This is a funny looking event. The men were diaper like object that is a animation override, and basically try to push the other out of the ring. The match was overseen by Mulsanne Bentley. The first up was Darkstorm Llwellyn and Bryantt Sands, with Dark taking it. Dark then took on Thomasbee Oh, with Thomas taking that one. Thomas was then challenged by Galahad Huet, the Magistrate of Tampica, with Galahad taking it. Galahad was then challenged by Dark, with Dark regaining his crown. Congratulations Dark!


I t was then that slave girls got into the act. Well, you know men and their girl on girl action. It started with Iadina Fuana and Miyu Vendetta, with Miyu taking it. She was then challenged by Melanie Barbarino, with Mel taking it. Mel was challenged by Rita Saito, with Rita winning. She was then challenged by Chandee Rockwell, Chandee won the match.

It was then that it got very exciting with free versus slave challenge. Dark versus Chandee, Dark won, but I must say Chandee gave him a run for his money.


After that was the snowball free for all. The rules were simple. Every takes a meter and a snowball, they begin fighting, until someone falls, that person leaves the game. They reset the meter and begin again. It goes until one person standing, and that is the winner. Unfortunately there were technical difficulties with the meters, and because they were nice, gave prizes to all who participated.

The last event I saw was the Tarn races. This was my favorite. I must say the most exciting of them. There were three contests, Lepida Lykin, Kron Juran, and Drakkarn Reddevil. It was Drakkarn Reddevil that won the race.

Animals of Gor

There are a wide variety of animals on the planet Gor. Some are similar to those on earth, and some are unlike any that an urthling has seen. Like most things in Gor, the animals seem to be stronger and more brutal than the urth counterparts.

River Thalarion

sea thalarion

ground Tharlarion

Tharlarion: There are numerous varieties of this reptile. They can be found in water and on ground. One type is a species of saddle lizard, They are used mostly by those who have not mastered tarns. Tharlarions have been bred for a thousand generations. They strong and fierce creatures. They come in all shapes and sizes. Tharlarions are also animals that can be roleplayed in gor. You can find skins, shapes and animations at stores. As a matter of fact one of the best tours I gave in teletus was to a tharlarion.


Ost-a small snake that lives in the rainforest of the schendi very dangerous, the venom causes death

Larl: There are several varieties of the lion-like beast. It is six to eight foot tall at the shoulder. Its head is broad, sometimes more than two feet across, and shaped roughly like a triangle. This makes its head viper-like. They are amazing hunters and are not tame, but remain on some level as always being wild. These are another animal that can be roleplayed gor. I have found several prides running about in sl gor. I personally find gorean furries at something to the roleplay.


Tarns: These are the giant riding birds of Gor, also called the Brothers of the Wind. They resemble a hawk but with a crest like a jay. You can actually buy riding tarns in sl gor. There are many versions, some with tarn baskets, and some that can even found that will carry victims in the claws. I have seen several on sale at the sardar fair.

Kaiila: They are horse like creatures, used the way urthlings use horses. They are extremely agile and can easily outmaneuver a high tharlarion. They require less food than a tarn. They are great huntes and are carnivorous. In Sl you can purchase them to ride on. Also there is a Kaiila racetrack in Fina and they have races weekly/


Tarsk: This is a six-tusked wild boar, with a bristly mane running down its spine. There is a giant tarsk that stands ten hands at the shoulder. There are several varieties of tarks in the rainforests, both large and small. They can be domesticated and the rencers keep some. They are best hunted from the back of kaiila with lances and the giant tarsk is often hunted on tarnback with lances. Tarsk meat tends to be salty.


Sleen: There are several varieties of this six-legged, long bodied carnivorous mammal. It is almost like a snake. Some can get as big as twenty feet long and up to twelve to fourteen hundred pounds. They have two rows of teeth in a wide and triangular head. Their paws have six claws. The sleen is considered Gor's most perfect hunter. You can actually run into some sleens in Treve, my poor cousin was attacked by two there. Luckily she was rescued by a ranger there.


Vart: These are blind, batlike flying rodents. They can grow to the size of a small dog. They can strip a carcass in minutes. Some are rabid and they hang upside down like bats.


Vulos: These are domesticated, tawny-colored pigeons raised for eggs and meat. At least some of their meat is white.


Tabuk: There are several varieties of this one horned, yellow antelope. It is small, graceful and eats berries and salt. Young tabuk rarely leave the thickets.


Bosk: There are fifteen varieties of bosk, a cattle like animal. These varieties include the brown bosk, red bosk, and milk bosk. They are commonly the long-haired wild ox of the plains. They have a thick, humped neck, a wide head, and tiny red eyes. They also have the temper of a sleen. With their two, long, wicked horns they can be quite deadly. The horns reach out and suddenly curve forward and may even reach the length of two spears. They are very important animals to the Wagon Peoples and also many others on Gor. Bosk meat and milk is available over much of Gor.


Verr: This is a mountain goat, indigenous to the Voltai Mountains. They are long-haired, spiral horned, and ill-tempered. There is a small, long-haired verr that is smaller and less belligerent than the wild verr. Some are domesticated and they are a source of wool and milk. The finest wool is sheared in the spring from the bellies of the hurt and verr.


There are several varieties of this common rodent. It is usually fat, sleek and white. It has three rows of needlelike teeth, tusks that curve from its jaw, and two horns that protrude over its eyes. It also has a long hairless tail. Most are tiny enough to hold in palm of your hand but some can get as big as wolves or ponies. Certain varieties migrate twice a year though it is only dangerous if you are in the middle of their path. In the rainforests there are gliding, ground, leaf and tree urts. The canal urt is web footed and can be found in Port Kar's canals. There are also brush urts and forest urts. Some large urts are domesticated and bred for attacking and killing. Most urts attack in a pack and are messy and noisy when attacking. You can buy little ones at the Sardar fair


Tumit: This is a large flightless bird of the prairies with a hooked beak as long as a forearm. Wagon Peoples hunt these with bolas.
