Gorean Role Play ... What is it?
What is Gorean
Role-Play? So far in this site we've talked tons about
what Gor is and where it comes from. We've
described Gorean life in intimate detail and given you
enough to enjoy month if not years of exciting role-play in
the world of Gor. Of course we haven't talked
about what to expect when you do enter a room and start
role-playing. On this page we will do exactly that.
What is it like?
Unlike any online chat rooms,
Gorean role-play rooms, (HTML among other formats),
are about taking on a persona and role-playing out
the life of that character you've taken on.
You could loosely compare this to the way some of
you may have one taking on a persona in Dungeons and
Dragons as one example. When you take a
character into a chat room you become that character
and type out what your character would say and do in
the environment of the room. HTML chat rooms
for example have location pull-downs to identify
where in the room you are. By this I mean, a
room may represent a city, a camp, an area of
wilderness or a combination thereof. So you
choose the most likely location to enter the
territory represented in the room and start living
your alter ego's life in Gor.
There are also name pull-downs to
choose from so your text posts can be directed at
another character directly. With a
combination of the two, you are able to create a
vibrant and entertaining role-play session.
Once you put your imagination to
work and get into the flavor of the room, you will
find your time in Gor very enriching.
It is important however that you
know and understand the nature of the room you've
entered when you do give it your first try.
For instance, some rooms are considered safe for all
and no harm can come to your character by entering
the room. This is the best type of room to
enter initially as there are many subtle mistakes a
person can make. These rooms will typically be
called a Fair, Marketplace or something similar.
Every role-play room will have a description at the
entrance page, that description will also tell if it
is a safe zone or a kill/capture zone.
Should you enter a room that is
considered a Kill/Capture Zone, you are accepting
that you may be attacked, captured, enslaved or
killed by another character once you enter.
As a Free Man, you face the
possibility that another Man may challenge you and
want to fight you. Once in the room you
must abide by the rules of the room so you are fair
game in such rooms and if you don't know how to
defend yourself it can get tricky fast.
As a Free Woman you could find
yourself captured or enslaved if the room is not
safe for Free Women to travel to alone.
Life is very dangerous for Free Women on Gor and the
slightest wrong behavior can cause unwanted
situations to develop.
As a slave, you can pretty much
count on someone capturing and collaring you and
making you their property or the property of the
camp, city or individual community represented in
the room. Slave's seldom enter a room
uncollared and leave it the same way unless its a
safe zone where they are not be force collared.
Sound confusing yet?
We've only scratched the surface so find a safe room
or a friend who is willing to help guide you in
another room and get started.

Nature of Gor
If you haven't read any of the books of Gor, you
should know that Gor is based on a fantasy world
where laws are made and broken with the sword,
honor is held higher than one's own life and when
a man desires a woman, he claims her, and quite
usually enslaves her as his property.
There are many articles on this site that describe
the Gorean concept of slavery so we won't go into
too much detail her on that subject.
Let is suffice to say that if you are a man, and
playing a Free Man of Gor, you are expected to act
like a Gorean Man, confident and strong.
Unafraid to take a woman by the hair, strip her
clothes off, a collar on her neck and call her
your slave. If you are a woman staring your
role-play as a Free Woman or a slave, you can
expect that if you aren't careful a Man will do
exactly that to you in the scope of his role-play,
and then you are expected to behave as his slave
in every way while in the chat room.
said, it should be blazingly clear by now that
Gorean Role-play is not for minors. This is
an adult theme and adult role-play in every
aspect. It is not uncommon to see
graphic language and actions within a Gorean
role-play room. If you are offended by
explicit scenes of violent or sexual nature, then
this isn't the kind of chat room you should be in.
Some of the safe rooms are relatively free of
explicit role-play, and some of the regular rooms
tend to keep it to a minimum, but others not only
allow it, they encourage it.
used by slaves are encouraged to be sexually
explicit, with nudity common, although vulgar or
overly explicit images are discouraged as
non-tasteful and pornographic, not a
representation of the nudity of slaves.
Please do not enter a room with an avatar showing
nudity that exceeds an erotic representation of
the female form, (or male form for male slaves).
Images showing aroused male genitalia or
penetration in the male or female images is also
forbidden in most rooms, but highly erotic nude
images are very much encouraged in all rooms.
slaves of Gor were not permitted modesty or to
hide their lustful desire to be used by men, so
acting as such is also very acceptable, just as
men in Gor felt no need to hide their desire to
enjoy the pleasures of women.
chat rooms sexual relations between men and women
is called 'furring'. As mentioned
before, furring can be done publicly in many rooms
and in private in most rooms. It is quite
common and a natural part of Gor, but respect is
the word of the day. Don't assume anything
from another in the room, till you know that the
typist behind the keyboard is consenting to the
Role-playing in Gor gives both men and women a
chance to explore deeper fantasies in a more
primal way, that the books have inspired.
Those that don't share these fantasies, don't come
to Gor, they have an abundance of other role-play
rooms to fill their time with, those that do
however may want to share these fantasies with
others, but are still living breathing people at
the other end of a keyboard somewhere in the
world. Never forget this fact.
RESPECT your fellow role-players and you will find
someone who shares your desires from your
role-playing experience. Disrespect
your fellow role-players and you are destined to
find a traumatic and hurtful experience ahead.

actions, the more it lends to realistic role-play.

better others can respond to you and your actions.

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 killed or
lost to an unwanted fate, it is done. No do
Don't Rush into role-play till you are ready to take
part. Many rooms will let you use an -o- or
observer tag to watch and learn.
Don't disrespect the room you are visiting.
Read the rules before entering and be prepared to
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. Read about
relations between Goreans. 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.
