Some caravans, of course, journey through from the distant points to the salt districts, accepting the danger and inconvenience of trekking the dune country, but thereby avoiding the higher charges of picking up salt from the storehouses in the local oases. Even these caravans, of course, once in the dune country are accompanied by the men of the Guard of the Dunes. The Guard of the Dunes, however, does not obtain the title of the Salt Ubar in virtue of his complacent magistracy of the salt districts, subservient to the Tahari merchants. There are those who say, and I do not doubt it true, that it is he, and not the merchants, who controls the salt of the Tahari. Nominally a sheriff of the Tahad merchants, he, ensconced in his kasbah, first among fierce warriors, elusive and unscrupulous, possesses a strangle bold on the salt of the Tahari, the vital commerce being ruled and regulated as he wills. He holds within his territories the right of law and execution. In the dunes he is Ubar and the merchants bow their heads to him. The Guard of the Dunes is one of the most dreaded and powerful men in the Tahari.
Add realism to your posts, the more you think out your actions, the more it lends to realistic role-play.
Be descriptive - again, the more detail offered the better others can respond to you and your actions. Become the Gorean you are playing.
Don't be limited by the rules that govern our society, you're in Gor once you enter the chat room. Be a Gorean.
Respect other people in the room. Many have been playing the character you see for years and value both their character and the role-play/storyline they are in.
Don't treat your time in the chat room like you are playing an arcade game. Once a character is captured or collared or any other unwanted fate, it is done. No do overs! *Just play it out, have fun, it's Gor!*
Don't Rush into role-play till you are ready to take part.
Don't disrespect the room you are visiting. Read the rules before entering and be prepared to follow them.
Don't Gender-bend - Meaning if you are a man, play a man, if you are a woman, play a woman. Gender bending will get you banned from a chat site.
Don't play more than one character at a time. That is considered dueling and is strictly forbidden by all Gorean Chat realms. Once you retire a character or it is killed, you may take on a new character, not before.
Don't treat others disrespectfully.
Slaves were cherished and valued, Free Women were given respect as such, Free men were given respect or your faced their wrath. Behind every Gorean is a real person from Earth, with feelings and emotions.
Don't use Gor as your place to vent your real life issues. We are not here to be beat up cause you want vengence on the bully that beat you up. We are not here to suffer for all the bad stuff that happens in your life in any way. Nor can we be expected walk on egg shells cause you have issues, come for fun and fantasy, and leave the issues at home in your real life.
The Gorean believes in harmony between all that lives as well as balance in the application of the survival of the fittest laws. He respects all men and all creatures other than men as having their role in the delicate equilibrium of life. The Gorean warrior holds his enemy in utmost respect; the hunter applies himself to learn the ways of the animals he hunts because he acknowledges their skill at fleeing him. In all that surrounds him, the Gorean finds beauty, value and purpose.
