Gorean Expo presented by DAB, a spectacular show

Gorean Expo
Over two glorious days, September 8th and 9th, all those who are interested in Gor were given a true treat. DAB Designs presented, through their gorean division, a spectacular fashion show dubbed the Gorean Expo. Unlike most fashion shows which consist of a runway with parading models, DAB decided to do something completely different. They created a gorean city named DAB with all the amenities of any gorean sim in second life. In their natural settings the models displayed the fashions that will be seen throughout Gor in the coming days and months. Not only did they present the silks, which get the most attention in other fashion shows, they also presented free women dresses and free men clothing of all styles. They also had a simulated panther camp and even the wagon people were represented in authentic settings. You could see what it would be like to be dressed in the fine fashions of Gor in the truest test of any gorean fashion, in its natural gorean setting.

How many times have you gone to a flashy store to find the perfect outfit, buy it, then realize once you were back on your gorean sim that it looked totally out of place? DAB has taken the guessing out of shopping by presenting all the beautiful and authentic fashions of Gor in their natural gorean environment. As I moved about the DAB city on the first day I saw free women moving about the tea room and library in fine dresses presented by Fantasia, GutterPup, and Eclectic Designs. The beautiful silks and camisks of GutterPup and Eclectic Designs were a treat for the eyes in the tavern. As I moved over to the other side of the virtual gorean city, I found myself in the panther camp. I was impressed with the setting of the camp, which looks much more authentic then many panther camps we see throughout second life Gor. The fashions of Feral Designs, Fantasia, GutterPup, and Husky made visiting the panther camp a realistic experience. I was truly impressed with just how realistic the panther fashions were. This is the first time I have seen this level of detail paid to panther fashions. My travels next brought me to the camp of the wagon people, which featured the best dress I have ever seen representing what a woman of the wagon people would wear; it was presented by Ayana and Hope Designs. I moved to the Warriors hall next, and found excellent free men clothing from Husky, and Fantasia Designs. As a scribe in Gor, I myself have found it hard to find proper attire. I was most pleased to see that DAB found designers to accommodate the needs of free men throughout Gor.

The second day of the Gorean Expo was just as impressive as the first. More fashions were presented from the fashion designers of the first day, as well as designs from AC creations, and FLP filthy larma productions. AC Designs presented an eclectic mix of free men and panther designs that impressed all that attended. FLP showcased their creations as well, and added to the already impressive displays of fashion from the first day. Many of the designers from the first day like Husky, and Ayana and Hope Designs added more treasures for all to the see on the final night of the Expo. No one went away disappointed. There were even discounts offered for those who decided to purchase products directly from the Expo.

All that attended were impressed as they watched the models move about the simulated gorean city throughout the two days of the Gorean Expo. Truly DAB has created a phenomenon that all hope will be seen again. Those that attended saw how fashion fits in the gorean lifestyle and how the fashions presented in DAB city would be perfect in any city, tavern, village, and camp throughout the world of Gor. Daron Brandeis the owner of DAB Designs, who has always been a friend of second life Gor, with the help of his personal assistant fallon Maertens, have given a gift to all those that care about Gor. They have shown that Gor like any other community in second life deserves to have attention paid to its needs. Clothing that truly fits the Gorean lifestyle has been hard to come by, through this Gorean Expo, DAB Designs has helped to bring the designers and Goreans together in a setting that is natural and unique.

slave papers and slave profile

I now sit happily at my Masters feet. I am his property, his true and true. When making such a change there are other changes needed to make. First of course is that of making slave papers. Even in sl gor you need to be legal, sort of speak. During rp you may be asked to show them, especially when traveling.


As far as writing up a slave paper, they can be eloborate or simple. It mainly only needs to states the names of the owner/s and the slaves names and the date of the collaring. If this is done in gor it is a good idea to be sealed with the seal of the homestone of her Master/Mistress.

Even though looking at ones profile is considered very bad rp, it is usually used as a kind of slave paper document. So for a girls own safety, when traveling in gor, a girl should put her owners name in her profile. As a matter of fact most Masters will demand it of you.

heres mine:

Property of Trenton Childs
lovingly collared 08/15/08
~*Red Silk Restricted*~

Any comments of concerns about this girl should be notecarded and sent to her owner, Master Trenton Childs any free may punish this girl.


It's also a good idea to put your rp limits and restrictions in your pics section

Restrictions and rp limits are basically what you are willing to do and what your Master is willing to let you do.
My restrictions:
This slave is allowed to serve food and drink to the Free as they wish; however, this slave is not to be harmed, damaged, mutilated, disfigured, or killed. Doing so damages my property and lessens its' value just compenstation will be sought. This girls body is for the pleasure of her Master only and restricted from anything sexual with anyone other than her Master and his household.

My rp limits:
I am dating sl Master in real life, I will not do anything to betray him.
My body is restricted to my Master and his household.
I will not do.......permant mutilation, rape or hair cutting and I can't dominate

Another nice thing for a slave to have but was not in the books and is considered an onlineism is a slave paper holder.
My Master has put several papers in my paper carrier
1. my slave papers, which contains my ownership papers, a copy of my submission and old documentation of past ownerships
2. my Masters rules and instructions
3. my rp history
4. my health papers
5. Skills and training

As far editing collars and slave paper holders if your like me and your earth home doesn't have many prim usage or you don't have a home a good place to go is the gorean sandbox. Markets of Semris - A Gorean San, Edgington (68, 38, 652)

((if anyone needs some blank slave papers just IM me or my Master Trenton Childs, and we will send you some))

Submission dances

Submission of Ashlyn
(picture taken by Daron Brandeis of DAB photography)

In Gor there lots of different traditions. One of the most beautiful is that of dancing. There many different types of gorean dances. One of which is the submission dance. This can be a story dance, in which it retells the story of the girls submission to her Master, or a way of telling her Master how much he means to her, or the actual submission it's self.

The dance expresses the girls feelings to her collar. Each submission dance is very unique. As no slave and Master relation is the same. The dance reflects the girls struggles and desires surrounding her collar. Most submission dances usually end with the girl accepting her fate.

Submitting to a Master or Mistress is considered a beautiful thing in Gor. There are many ways to make it special. I chose dancing because partly because I was scared to dance and it would truely show how much my Master meant to me, to overcome my fears for him.


My writen dance:

/me squirms uncomfortably and tugs at her veil

/me shifts her weight nervously and then brings her hand up ther mouth and tugs at her glove with her teeth

/me breaths heavily and in pure desperations rips off her gloves

~~~~~~~~~~take off gloves~~~~~~~~~

/me lets out a sigh and turns to Trent with tears in her eyes

~~~~~~~~~~~~Turns to Trent~~~~~~~~~~~

my love I can no longer live a lie. My love is deep and my need to serve is storng

/me brings her small hand to her face and with one quick movement rips the balck fabric form her face

~~~~~~~~~~~~take off veil~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

/me looks down to her feet without saying a word she hikes up her skirt and lighltly kicks off her shoes

~~~~~~~~~~remove shoes~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~ao off~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

/me strertces out her arms pleading to him to take her

~~~~~~~~~~~buy me!-d~~~~~~~~~~

/me turns lightly on her heels and slowly slides her skirt down

~~~~~~~~~~remove skirt~~~~~~~~~~~~

/me steps lightly away form the bonds of her freedom and twirls about feeling the joy of her beatiful bondage


/me's body swoons and sways to the love she feels and her desire to please well up with in her a desire that only slavery can appease

/me blue-green eyes look up to him pleadingly her whole body now seems to be taken over by something she can longer her control. She is at the point of no return

~~~~~~~~~~liquid persia~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

/me slides downward finding herself on the floor. There is no going back now, the world now knows what she is, her truth is out she is la kajira

/me finds the truth brings a relief to her entire body as she feels her new life take hold, she becomes very overwhelmed with desire

/me heart begins to beat faster and faster, her whole body tires her beathing becomes heavy as fear sets in,

/me she begins to fear he will refuse her and shes falls to the floor in desperation

/me laying helplessly on the floor, sighs deeply and looks to the man she hopes to call her Master

/me she slides up to her knees, and then slides her small arms behind her head


I give you all that I am, and all that I will be
I beg you make me as yours

~~~~~~~~~change ao to kajira ao~~~~~~~~~~

I did not copy and paste, I typed it out, mainly out of fear that I would not time it right. So you can see I actually changed it a bit during the preformance. This helps if things happen during your performance that force you to alter it. Luckily the panthers waited till after my dance to attack the city.

Thank god for huddles! If you don't have one get one or a chim, they help when changing from dance to dance.

All I had to do with huddles was drop in the animations and make a notecard with all the animations. Then I was easily able to switch from animation to animation.

animations used:
buy me-purchased at gor jus
swoon and liquid persia purchased at sine wave
sleep and submit-freebies not sure where I got them

FW Dancing

On July 13th I went to a lovely workshop in Hellenos led by Kembri Tomsen and Khalida Juutilainen in Hellenos. It was on free woman dancing. Most might find this idea crazy, but it was practiced in the books. This was generally a private thing, done for the free companion or a kind of impress the boss dinner occasion. A friend of mine that was also in the class is planning a special treat for her future free companion. Which I found to be a good idea. For any other free woman wanting lessons or information on free woman dancing please contact Khalida Juutilaninen or Kembri Tomsen.

By the books slave training taught by Caerwydh Darragh

I was privileged to attend the first class in a series of classes being taught by Caerwydh Darragh in the city of Laura. The class was set in a friendly camp atmosphere with many of eager to learn slaves attending. Caerwydh has three years experience in Gor and had read the books of Gor before that. The classes will start with the basics and progress to the more advanced levels of gorean slave knowledge over the next few weeks. What's really striking about Caerwydh's style of teaching is how she encourages questions and interacts with the slaves attending the class. Unlike some slaves who are trainers on sl, Caerwydh uses her positive attitude and good nature to encourage the kajira as opposed to the negative training styles of others. This style brings out participation from even the shyest slave, and all who attend leave having learned something.

Caerwydh Darragh training

There are two classes a week, and ten classes in total, with the first class going off flawlessly. If you are a kajira eager to learn or improve your skills, or a free looking to observe excellent training, then these are the classes for you.

gorean greetings

Goreans are people of intense tradition and honor. One of the first traditions you will become aware of is there greetings and partings. This a very particular thing with them and should be on of the first things you learn.

First and foremost the earth greetings, hello, hi, etc will never do. You will only be immediately looked upon as a noob.

gorean greetings
(picture taken by: Fallon Maertens of DAB-Free: Cyris Dreadlow Beth McAllister, Trenton Childs, Slaves-Myn Baily, Ettevy Zimer, Lissie Slade, Judy Wunderland)

The correct way to greet is to either say Tal or greetings. Tal is generally used among the free and greetings by and to slaves. There is also a special order in which you are to greet those within a group. Now it is perfectly acceptable for a free to say say Tal all or Tal free. This is never to be done by a slave and is always best to greet by order

The order goes as follows:
leader of the city
Free men of the city
Visiting leaders
free men of other cities
free women of the city
free women of other cities
the first girl
female slaves
male slaves

For private slaves you must always greet your Master first by saying greetings my Master. Then you would greet your Masters Companion second then proceed in the general order. You would also greet the first girl of you house befor the first girl of your house before the first girl of your city. Also you would greet your sisters slaves before other slaves. Some Masters/Mistresses will require you to beg to greet, if this is true you would simply say Master may I greet. He/She would reply you may greet mine.

As with greetings, farewells go in same order. Also bye and see you would not be acceptable.
Typical farewells:
be well
well wishes
I wish you well
safe paths
soft paths-said to and by slaves
serve with fire-this is only said to slaves

Many people develop there own special way of giving farewell

Slaves should not that you would never tell a free to be well as this is in a sense giving an order and a slave is not allowed to this to a free.

The Thing

the thing

The Thing, or Thing-Fair, is esentially a large tournament and fair in Torvaldsland. The men may participate in a wide variety of contests and can win talmits. A talmit is a headband and they are not always just prizes. Talmits may also signify different districts, officers and Jarls. They may be made from a variety of materials such as the skin of a sea sleen. Men often bring their slaves to the Thing. Merchants and men of other castes from cities south of Torvaldsland may also attend the Thing. Combat is prohibited at the Thing but men can still carry their weapons. This prohibition does not extend to duels. It also enables outlaws to attend. Each free man of Torvaldsland must attend the Thing unless they are a farmer who works his farm alone. Each of the men who attends must present to the Jarl hosting the Thing a helmet, shield and either sword, ax or spear in good condition. Each man must maintain his own weapons. The only exception is mercenaries who are in the direct hire of the Jarl. In that case, the Jarl supplies their weapons. Even those who cannot attend the Thing must still maintain their own weapons and present them at least once a year to the Jarl.
Some of the contests at the Thing include swimming, archery, singing, poetry composition, wrestling and rhyming games. They also must climb the mast, a fifty-foot tall pole of needle wood. There is a broad jump on level land and a walk of the "oar" that is actually just a long pole. There is spear throwing for distance and accuracy. Riddle guessing is popular. One such riddle in the books was "What is black, has eighty legs and eats gold?" The correct answer is the Black Sleen, the ship of Thorgard of Scagnar. There is even a rough bat and ball game. In this game, there are two men on each side. The object of the game is to keep the ball away from the other team. No player can hold the ball for more than a referee's count of twenty. The player can throw it over his head and try to catch it himself. He can also throw the ball to his teammate or hit it to him with the bat. The bats are made of heavy wood and the ball is wooden as well. Being struck by a bat or the ball can be painful and injuries are common. There are even beauty contests for bond-maids.
(taken from a notecard created by Reis Kurka)

There is currently one being held at Heimdal and will be held 15th throught the 18th
They will be holding various tournaments durings thes days

slave speak

(fallon Maertens-unowned slave)

Slave speak is term used to refer to way some slaves are forced to speak. This is the art of speaking in 3rd person. This is generally used to enforce a girls slavery upon her. In Gor slaves are considered to be property and by speaking in 3rd person it helps the girl or boy to remind them that they is simply property. This can also be used as a form of punishment.

To slave speak is simple....
instead of using me or I you would use your name or this girl/boy

This girl wishes you well
Ash greets you my Master

“But remember,” he said, smiling, “it is slaves who are assessed and have prices. Free women are priceless.”
Kajira of Gor

"Goreans, in their simplistic fashion, often contend, categorically, that man is naturally free and woman is naturally slave. But even for them the issues are more complex than these simple formulations would suggest. For example, there is no higher person, nor one more respected, than the Gorean free woman." -Hunters, p311

Sebastian Fuller

When living and playing in gor you will most definately ran across som very unique people and definate characters. My last night in Tharna I met Sebastian Fuller. He is a peasant with no legs, and seems to get around by using a small cart. He was hillarious, and literally kept us laughing the whole time he was with us. If you ever run across this peasant, ask him about his sleen farm in tarnburg. You won't regret it.

What a kajira is............

Simply a kajira is a slave. But more than that they are woman that are highly trained in serving drinks, food, dancing, entertaining, caring for the home, caring for the free and how to be pleasing at all times. These are woman who are trained to walk, speak, act and to be beautiful and pleasing. The are very much like the Japanese Geisha or the courtesans of europe.


It can be lots fun of being a kajira in sl gor, but not always easy. Some may think it a matter of wearing silks, saying yes Master, and doing what your told. In second life it is very much a performance. A craft that needs to be cultivated and learned. In sl gor a trained kajira is expected to know how to serve, dance, entertain, do chores and be pleasing and beautiful in everyway. The art of serving, dancing, etc is generally emoted.


As far as taking on the role of kajira, it is not simple but can be very rewarding. It is a very good idea to observe several sims while ooc or start out playing a free woman while learning the basics of Gor. It's always a good idea to read up on notecards.

The number one thing a Kajira is a woman of Exquisite Beauty and total Obediance

The top do's and don'ts......

*A slave must never say a frees name they are to refer to them as Master or Mistress(a slave uses the terms greetings Masters/Mistress, yes Master/Mistress, no Master/Mistress, and thank you Master/Mistress)

*A slave does not stand in the presence of a free, they will take the positions of tower, nadu, or bracelets

*A slave must beg or ask to do most anything in the world of gor, while in sl gor you will be expect to ask if you can go afk, leave or pass by a free. Some Masters may even demand you to beg to greet.

*Always remeber a free is never wrong, so it is improtant to always be pleasing

*A slave can never tell a free what to do or make demands to a free. As a matter fact telling them to have a good day is considered a command so it is usually proper for a slave to wish them well instead, being that is not a command

*A free can punish a slave at any time for any reason.

*A free is never wrong

*Never have your back to a free

Honestly though the number one rule is do as your Master or Mistress commands

Tharna-Jewel of the Tatrix

Actually there are two Tharna's in SL. The one I will be showing you is where I now live. The storyline on this sim has a true basis in the books telling of Tharna. In the books, Tharna was beatiful and rich city that was leading supplier of silver. It was also the only one in the books to be ran by a tatrix. Another unique aspect of Tharna was that the free woman did not wear veils, but chose to where masks instead. The Tatrix wore a gold and the citizens silver. This will also be played in this sims. (The free woman will be given the masks)


The richness of the city can be seen everywere. The place is filled with beautiful gardens, fountains, and artitecture is a must see. The city it's self is walled keeping the citizens safe from unwanted attacks. Within the city you find the usual scribery, slave house, infirmary, etc all done in a style that is clean with high class elegance.


Outside the city you will find rental home community. The homes are beautiful and are rented weekly, 600L for a two story and 300L for a one story. In the Middle is a gathering area with one of tharnas legendary fountains.


The outlaying is of course the the silver mines. But please be careful, there are also panthers lurking nearby. Near the panther camp are the most lucious berries, luckily, the panthers lets this one pick the berries as long as she gives them half of her pickings.


There is an intersim roleplay going on with Tharna over the control of the silver mines. Port Kar and Tyros have developed an alliance and are trying to seize control. Anyone wantint to take part and pledge an alliengence to either side please contact Fine Razor of Tharna, Dark Star of Port kar, or Theodoric Delphis of Tyros.


The sim uses glm

Many changes

So much was going on, that I unfortunately had to take a break from writing and Gor. But I have returned. Although things are quite different for me now. I am unfortunately now in chains. Bound by love and passion to my former free companion. Luckily my Master is going to let me travel, so I will begin writing again.

YukiYanagi Lilliehook

Today Gor lost a wonderful person....

YukiYanagi Lilliehook


she left this note for all that loved her.

Hi ! Hi ! *wave's her hand*

* Scrambles around the ground, holding a boot in her mouth plopping on her bum nawing it making it all slobbery. Looking up at you then everyone* "Hi hi my name is Yuki....yush * nodding her head * I dont really speak much but this is a occiasion that I feel might be needing of the yuki babble * smiles big with a shoe string in her mouth*.
If you are reading this that mean I have passed away and and gone to the land when I can play and chew on things. I 'am sorry that you had to get this message but I rather have left a notice, of why I have disappeared from the world. Than let you or anyone else just think I left you all which would rather not have liked considering I think I have one big giant family.
I 'am so happy that I had got the oppertunity to learn english through Secondlife, or I would have never had met any of the unique and beutiful people in this world I spent so much time in. This game has given me the power to see past things I couldnt have seen in the real world. To see new worlds and new cultures other than my own and to learn how to be with others that I normaly would be very shy around.

Yuki 2

It makes my heart hurt some that I wont be able to see my freind's anymore, since I do not no what the afterlife has in store for me. But I do know that the things we do in this life reflects on your next life, depending on religion some are but I believe that no matter what relgion they are the same in there own special way.
The thing's I had learned in this life I will always remeber especially the ones that told me, it was ok to have a night light on at night. Or it wasent werid if I had a larl plush toys I made to sleeps with ( shadow, crone. Sek, Sasha, and some others ) or the little the little pictures and toys I made of ( Diashi, and Tk).
Some people do not relise that Secondlife for me was a way to escape my life I was afraid of. And be something I could have never been in the real world. Even if it was a gorean Feral or she quad for the hardcore goreans, or a grandaughter of a very special family in Gor located in teletus * huggles her momma and papa and Na na's*. Or a adopted or lost sister of northern woods or a forgoten princess of Thentis. I will always no I had a family even it was some place or some where in Secondlife I always had a mother for * slobbers on Oni* or someone to keep me in line * ranma* or just some one to play with all around even if he was a little black dragon that had a very huge nest in a sim I cant remember the name of. From the Sci fi sim's where I was a mouse in Midian or a lil neko in karamoon or tiny ent in avilion.
Thank you for being with me and letting me be happy, I am honored to have such great freinds no more than freinds family that I will truly cherish even in the after life. I love you all so muchies * licks all your noses , giggling then hops off her bum dropping the shoe and reaches up grabbing her little halo and chewing on it as she runs off to play*

* stops and turns around and pounce you slobbering then runs off .....giggles*

Love you all su muchies
Yukiyanagi lilliehook

Northern Woods

northern woods_002

After leaving Axe Fjord, I stupidly traveled on to the Northern Woods alone. My family returned to Teletus, working through the misunderstanding that had made us leave. I can truely be careless and headstrong, this is one of those cases. The Northern Woods is a wild place home to panthers. Even though I knew this well, I traveled on. I entered not even thinking of the dangers a free woman would face in the northern woods. I wasn't even paying attention and walked right into a panther camp. I was immediately attacked by the second cheiftess, who had seen me speaking to a leader of an enemy outlaw group, the day before. I was tied to a tree and interogated for hours. I cried bitterly, and over and over again told them I was simply a writer and traveler. They laughed not believing me. Later a panther I had helped once showed up and spoke for me. It was then decided that I was not to be killed, but I would not be allowed to leave. I was removed from the tree and a collar was placed around my neck. I was then forced to serve these mighty huntresses. I was then renamed teardrop, for my tears. The whole time I cried. I can't say they were cruel, they were actually nice to me. But my heart ached for my family and friends. I was missing them greatly and wanted nothing more than to return to Teletus.

northern woods_001

I withstood my slavery for several days, being that no one knew were I had gone. I knew they feared the worse and had no way of finding me. My heartache could stand no more and I fled. It seemed at first I would make it with no trouble. But I was caught, by the panther who had spoke up for me. She took pity on me and even helped me escape. I am now safely at home. I have returned to Teletus and am happily living with my love Trenton and my family.

Midwinter Festival

While visiting the Axe Fjord, they were having a midwinter festival. It was a wonderful event. Upon entering they even greeted there guests with gifts. We arrived with it already under way. We entered to the musical talents of Perryn Peterson.


Then we were entertained with a dance by the beautiful first girl Giada Koba. We then heard a wonderful story by the Jarlswoman, Huravia Basiat. We ended our day here with an archery contest, my love Trenton Childs 3rd place, and was won by Mehrunes Usworth. I even won best dressed fw. It was a wonderful day. These are people, though fierce and proud are generous and kind. It was a truely wonderful visit.


to visit just search Axe Fjord

Axe Fjord

Axe Fjord_008
Axe Fjord is in the Northern part of Gor. This area of Gor is especially harsh and dangerous. The whole sim has a very Viking look about it. In the northern part of Gor the customs can be very different. For one thing the slaves in this part of gor are referred to as bondmaids instead of Kajira. They are a bit different the kajira, in that they are more sassy and brazen, but do not have anymore freedoms than that of a kajira. They don't were, instead they were kirtles or nothing at all.


Another difference I noticed small things, like that the men are generally referred to as Jarl. The slaves will generally use the term Jarl instead of Master. I also noticed that they refer to the first sword as first axe. It was these small difference that you seem to notice first. Though the weather and land is harsh and cold. The strong and brazen people of this land, are very generous and friendly, and the bondmaids are extremely attentive. But any princess kajira or free that enjoys soft luxuries, may want to stay away.

Axe Fjord_005

The sim is an extreme roleplay sim, in that they do not allow voice, and heavily discourage any type of OOC.

they use the glm meter
Free woman don't have to wear veils and carry daggers and poisoned hair pins
female outlaws are not allowed

Becoming a Traveler

The world was bright again, now that I had my cousin and my sister. She was five when we were separated. Her story was even sadder than mine. Our parents were killed right before her eyes by the raiders that attacked the island after the storms. They went through everything that wasn't damaged or destroyed, taking anything of value for themselves. They also struck down any who got in their way. Poor Angelina was in the thick of it all, just a child lost in a world of caos. But that is a story only she can tell.
Ashlyn gave us shelter, guided us through Teletian customs, introduced us to the people. I felt that I was truly home again, though my heart still ached. The Teletians welcomed us with open arms. We are content to be one of them, but we yearn to see new things; visit new places. Time for our new adventures to begin. And so, we are the travelers of Gor. Ashlyn, Lorianna, and Angelina. We will explore new lands, visit exotic cities, and share our experiences with all who may be interested.

My Story

I am Lorianna McCallen. I am a traverler of Gor. I was born on a faraway island called Bolgreena. I was six years old when the deadly storms that would completely change my life forever arrived. People believed we were being punished, but for what they couldn't say. I remember the terror that swept through the small island, the roaring the the storms as they pounded against our home. That is all I remember of the fateful day, however. I woke up days later on a ship, and I was very ill. Once I recovered, I was told that I had been found floating in the ocean upon a wooden door. I had been seperated from my family, and feared that I would never see them again. I didn't learn all the details until many years later.
I spent the rest of my childhood in a foundling home that was run by a kind old woman. I helped raised the smaller children, did my chores, and had some schooling. It was two days before my eighteenth birthday that I recieved a letter. It was from a woman claiming to be my cousin, and she wanted me to come and live with her on the island of Teletus. My heart soared, and immediately started to pack. I bought passage on a ship bound for the the vicinity of the island with the money that my cousin had sent. Our meeting was not to be at that time, however.
The ship I was sailing on was attacked by pirates, and I was taken captive. The pirate captain thougt that I was a lady born, however, so I was treated rather well. He was hoping for a steep ransom. There were two men that had survived the attack, and they ended up rescuing me and the several other passengers. One of them was the Captain. His name was Rurek McCallen. We fell in love and were married many months later. For three years we lived and loved one another. I sent letters to my cousin through out that time. It was during our fourth year of marriage that my husband was lost at sea. I still do not believe him dead to this day. I know it my heart that we will someday meet again. I mourned him for a year, walking the docks at night, waiting for some small sign. Finally, my cousin insisted that I come and live with her, and so I traveled to the beautiful island of Teletus. My cousin, Ashlyn, greeted me on the dock, and we hugged one another fiercely. She also had a surprise for me. My sister, Angelina, was there too. At last!

Sardar Mountains


Sometimes sadness will bring you to strange places. My sadness sent me to the Sardar Mountians. The in the books the Sardar Mountains are a wild treacherous place, that is home to the priest kings, and considered very sacred. In second life they are home to the Shinigami Outlaws. They are a fierce group of outlaws not to be messed with. This is a very dangerous sim, and is almost a guarantee collar for free woman and slaves.


While there I did not find the priest kings, I did see this nice and serene house. I wonder.... I was to afaid to approach. It would not be right for a woman to be in the prescence of a priest king, so I did not approach.


This sim has kind of rough darkness to it, but yet very nicely built. This is an outlaw sim, remeber when entering it is very dangerous and chances of capture is extremely high.

They are a strict rp sim, do not allow much ooc. Some of the main points to remeber before entering is kills captures must be 4 lines and kills must be 5 emotes.

the admins are:
Yasmin Fisseux
Romper Barbosa
Del Mauriac

uses the Gorean meter
female outlaws and mercs are allowed but cannot show skin

the main rules are as follows
1. no jumping
2. no cutting cages
3. 2 day death
4. 3 day capture(except for slaves-perm collar)
5. no mass murder tolerated
6. 2 deaths per 24 hours on each side

the following things are not allowed:
tarns, jumping, fighting slaves,

Cressida Village

cressida Village_005

Cressida Village is half of an sim that is rental property for goreans. It is a very nice area that offers free usage of the scribery, arena and a tavern, for your pleasures. It also lots of outdoor seating areas, and poseballs where you can sit and relax and just spend time with friends. My favorite aspect of the sim is the Caverns. The caverns have a beautiful underground tavern. I wish I could say I was a good free woman and stayed out but I can't.

cressida Village_002

The homes are 540L a week, they are 300 sqm with a prim allowance of 175 but you can buy more if needed. They are available in various styles with balcony, without, intern stairs or TPs corner turret or side turret.

cressida village_004

Another nice aspect is if a tenant wants to host an event it is allowed free of cost.
Anyone looking for a gorean rental home, should most definately check this place out.
