Slave Rules: (Constantly updated, revised and added too.) All slaves return to this page and READ OFTEN!
As a slave of Landa, there are a few basic things you must know about. This introduction is a way of helping you ease into your new home. Landa is a wonderful place and by following the simple rules of our home, we are confident you will like it just as much as we do. In these scrolls you will find the pages you need to study and learn. These are some of the things that are most important to know about being a slave in Landa.
When you are in a city collar, it means you are owned by the Ubar or that you are city property. Ubar Thorn rules Landa, therefore you are property of Him. At all times you will address the Ubar as Master Ubar. His word is LAW. When you speak to a Free, you address A Freeman as Master and a Freewoman as Mistress. Never use a Master or Mistress first name when addressing Them or when talking with Them. Only time a Frees first name may be used is when referring to a Free when speaking to another Free. Example: (a girl speaks to her Master Ubar.)"Mistress Dez asked me to wash the floors Master Ubar.")
The Importance of a Proper Attitude The proper attitude will be stressed over and over in Landa. Every slave in Landa has made the choice to enter... a slave has no choice once you enter you agreed to the role of a slave. A slave who was Free and collared you know that Gor is a "Man's world" before you entered Landa, accept the fate your role has taken. Yes, this is only roleplay and roleplay takes place in Landa. A Freewoman collared can roleplay resistance but understand there will be consequences to your actions. This is Gor. Roleplay intentions should be handled through the proper chain of command. The trainer needs to know the direction you wish your roleplay to take so you are not labeled a "gamer" when really that is not the case at all.
KEEP IN MIND GOR is NOT fair. GOR is NOT just. GOR is GOR Live it or leave it ATTITUDE, DEVOTION AND LOYALITY The success of your roleplay will depend on it
Exquisite beauty... it is how a slave completlely carries and displays her/himself in every lil aspect she/he performs not in her/his appearance. Every kajira/kajirus will first learn to display and maintain the proper attitude of a kajira/kajirus.
Absolute obedience ... as a slave you will do as you are told quickly and without any arguement or displeasing attitude, and if not, you will be disciplined until your attitude is properly corrected and display the expectations of Landa.
Gor is a choice that you made... you were NOT forced to enter through Landas gates... you made that choice... Remember you make the choice every single time you T/P here... so always check your attitude before entering..You can display a postitive attitude and make the best of each given situation, or choose to pout, whine and bitch, and make things worse... your choice... Keep in mind that there will be consequences to the choices you make...Proper attitude, the key to your success in Landa that should unlock the door to having fun!
Making your Entrance and Making your Exit:
All slaves should set their home base to either the kennels or their owners request or the docks of Landa.
Upon entering Landa, You must type an intro message consisting of at least three lines and being very descriptive of your entrance. Landa is your home now, so you do not need to ask to enter. (Example: A girl awakens in the kennels, she streatches her long lean limbs and rises gently, she makes her way to the wash basin and prepares herself for her day.)
After entering you check the mini map to see who is on the sim. If it is your Owner you tend to their needs first. If your Owner is not present or your a city slave you make your way to any group of frees in the public areas or to anyplace your owner or trainers have instructed you to be. Most white and grey silk slaves spend much of their time in the kennels only in STUDY and training. You may be restricted to the kennels or your Owners kennel. If so this must show somewhere on your profile.
When approaching a group of Frees you always go to your Owner (if you have one) or the highest ranking Free in the group. You kneel in proper position for a Master or Mistress. You greet this Free and ask if you may greet the others. If the Free are in a deep conversation the slave stays silent and waits for an opportunity to greet.
'You do not address free men by their name,' I said. 'Yes, Master,' she said. 'You will address all free men as "Master,"' I said, 'and all free women as "Mistress."' 'Yes, Master!' she said." Vagabonds of Gor page 436.
If the Frees profile does not reveal the gender, use Master. If corrected, apologize and make a note for the future. All Free of Landa will be greeted as soon as you can visibly see them.
If something should come up in real life (r/l) and you need to leave your computer to deal with it, you are to ask to go AFK (away from keyboard) In order to go AFK a slave will ask in open chat in general, if you may go to away. Use your GM meter to show you are away. Privately owned slaves, you ask your Owner if they are present. If you have asked three times without a response or if a Free of Landa grants permission, then you may AFK. Leaving or logging out from Landa. If it is a RLE” (real life emergency) ask to leave only once post RTE and just go, but you will need to explain yourself when you are able to return.When the time comes for you to log out from Landa in general. Slaves will ask in open chat in general if you may leave. Example “may girl/boy go please?” Privately owned slaves will ask their Owner if They are present, if their Owner is AFK or not in the present a member of Landa may grant permission. In order to leave you may need to ask three times, after the third time asking the question. If no Free has responded or when a Member of the Landa grants you permission, you may go. Before leaving, you must give your well wishes to A/all. The ONLY exception would be an immediate RTE, be prepared to explain yourself when you return.
"'What are my duties?' I asked. 'Exquisite beauty and absolute obedience,' said Sucha." Slave Girl of Gor page 261.
While Free People are not always right in what they do or say, it is not the place of a slave to correct them or to argue with them. If a slave has a problem with any Free Person she can take that dispute to his/her Master and/or Mistress or in accordance to the chain of command. If the dispute is with your Master and/or Mistress, or the Ubar, live with it, you are a slave! A slave will have the last two words in any disagreement, those being "yes, Master/Mistress". When a slave in Landa has a problem, they need to speak of..no matter WHAT it is... it goes to the Head Slaver or a trainer first.
Slaves have no rights. You have nothing not given you by a Master. "The names of slaves, of course, may be given and taken away at will, as the names of other sorts of animals." Magicians of Gor page 279.
Slaves must not interrupt the conversations of Masters/Mistresses except in an emergency and only then will they do so in a IM.
A slave is not to touch any form of weaponry without instruction or permission of a Master/Mistress for to do so invites death. This rule does not extend to kitchen knives, gardening tools, etc... these are tools entrusted to slaves for the performance of their duties.
A slave will be required to pick up and carry coins in his/her mouth. Sometimes when sent on an errand, a slave might carry a pouch tied to her/his collar. "In most cities, even the touching of money, unless in an authorized situation, is prohibited by slaves." Dancer of Gor page 238.
A slave is to speak in third person. Slaves do not have the words "I", "me", or "mine" in their vocabulary. "'Yes?' I said. 'May I be taught to dance?' she asked. 'Who is "I"?' I questioned. 'Alyena, your slave girl, Master,' she whispered, 'begs to be taught to dance.' Perhaps she will be taught,' I said. 'She is grateful,' said the girl." Tribesman of Gor page 9.
Landa is a BTB Gorean sim at times there is war and raids. All slaves are to go to the tunnels immediately when there is a raid taking place.
No IM's are to be kept between a V/visitor and a slave without authorization; if S/someone comes in and IM's any one of the slaves, it is a slave's duty to copy and post the IM's in public. If a Free is present and a Visiting Guest asks a slave questions, a slave is to direct Him or Her to the Free..
No drama queen antics will be tolerated. Negative attention will NOT be rewarded. No crying -- no sad faces -- no "stunts" to bring attention to a slave. A slave will bring attention to herself by serving from his or her belly, by being pleasing, flirtatious, enticing and NOT by being disobedient, trying to kill herself, or coming into the room crying and bringing every one into her bad day. If a slave is having a bad day, then she should stay away from Landa. It is a slave's job to give of herself 150%, to be pleasing at ALL times. Bringing PMS or anger into our home will NOT be tolerated. Slaves who are drunk R/L do NOT come into Landa for ANY reason until sober. Drunkenness is NOT pleasing and will not be tolerated for any reason. Although the Ubar owns every city slave, a city slave will never refer to the Ubar as "my Master" nor use ownership phrases such as "Your girl"; these type of phrases are a reserved priveledge for His private chain only.
Every slave should check the group notices often even if nothing seems to change as important announcements may be made there. All slaves are to read the notices before starting roleplay.
Furring in Landa Personally owned slaves have restrictions/conditions set by their Master or Mistress..a yellow silk privately owned.. should be only allowed to fur Others that the Master or Mistress approve of.. and ONLY private yellow silks.. shall have a furring price if Needed.
Landa kajira that wear city yellow silks... are free of cost to fur to the members of Landa only. Is to the Ubars discretion and command if Honored guests or visitors are to fur any city slave.
Freetime "'What does the girl do in her free time?' asked Audrey. 'Much what she pleases,' I said. 'She will have friends among other slaves. She walks, she visits. She exercises, she reads. Within limits, she does what she wants to do.'" Beasts of Gor page 249.
A slave will not be idle in the Landa, a slave should be busy at all times. After a slave has completed her duties, she may have some freetime to do things such as talking to her sisters and brothers, doing an activity with a sister/brother etc. Use common sense be aware of the offerings your sisters and brothers are making but return to offer serve again after a period of freetime. All freetime activity or any chore that is being done in Landa should be stopped to offer service to an entering Free. If no other slaves are available in Landa to offer to serve and you are tending to a chore that is outside the area where the Free is, roleplay returning to that area, as if you needed to get something or do something you forgot about, seeing the Free, you will greet and offer to serve... A slave should be begging to serve Those that have been in Landa for an extended period of time, where service has not recently been offered. Serving the Free, doing your chores will always without exception come before any freetime activities.
Traveling to other Gorean sims: Permission to travel for slaves who wear a Personal collar varies for each slave. Basically, a slave should ask his/her own Master/Mistress about any restrictions regarding traveling. No slaves owned by the Ubar are allowed to travel.
Slavehood Each of you is a sister and to be held true at heart. Any arguments between any slaves result in a severe penalty. Each slave is here to serve and honor this home. There shall be no bickering in public..arguments in public will not be tolerated. Disagreements and bickering will take place in IM only, will be scripted and if necessary handled through the proper chain of command. Jealousy and possessiveness of one's Master have killed more slaves than disobedience. The actions of the Free are unquestionable.
Begging Release from a collar NO SLAVE, of Landa, Personally Owned, or City kajira, shall ever publically nor privately beg for release from a collar. The Book of Gor specifically state Gorean Men, do not do such a thing, the ideal of begging out of a collar is an online-ism, used so that gameplayers can go and be with thier lil cyber buddies...It will not condoned.
and this is the Quote: "Gorean men, on the whole, do not free slaves. The freeing of a girl is almost unheard of. This makes sense. They are not free women. They are belongings, valuables, slaves, treasures. Who discards precious possessions, who surrenders treasures? If the slave girl were worth less perhaps she would be freed more. She is too marvelous to free; and if she is not marvelous, she can be slain. Too, what man who has known the glory and joy of a girl at his feet is likely to wish to exchange that for the inconvenience and bother of a free woman? No, slave girls, for all practical purposes, are not freed. They will remain in one collar or another. Men will have it that way." "Explorers of Gor" Page 90
Male slaves of Gor, were looked down upon by Free Gorean Men. Simply because of the weakness, not to live up to their Gorean Birth right. Some of the Male slaves, were simply Free Men, of whom, like Tarl, lost their Honor, and have a task to earn their Honor Back. Other Male Slaves were there for a specific purpose.. such as the Lure Slave, used to draw a Free Woman into couching. Most Male slaves however.. were workers.. laborers..helping build, unload ships, and doing heavy lifting. Fighting slaves.. often were Free Men.. collared because of a Crime, or being declared dishonorable by their Ubar. These men.. still held rights of Free Men.. however.. were mostly "tenders" to Honorable Free Men. Kajirus were never silk slaves.. and it is why.. kajirus in Landa.. will not be trained as such.
