Okay lets get going...

Chapter Three

Lydius may be the back end of beyond, but there is plenty of bustle there and as thriving an ethnic mix as we have seen anywhere outside of the Sardar Fairs. Bosk makes it clear that, while Lydius isn’t as wild and woolly as Port Kar, it is run by people who are more interested in lively commerce than in minding other people’s business for them, and this is rather handy from Bosk’s point of view. Of course as Bosk the Pirate of Port Kar he would be viewed with a thoroughly jaundiced eye, but he has no difficulty in operating under a very simple assumed name; and indeed, the ship in the next berth, from Port Kar’s enemy state Tyros, is proclaimed to be from Turia, which is not only a palpable untruth but a laughable one, as Turia is hundreds of miles from the sea.

While sitting down to lunch, Bosk realizes he has been robbed. It is beneath his dignity to worry overmuch about the loss of a few coins - he is tremendously wealthy and has lost only his pocket-money - but he is sharp enough to guess who must have done the deed and when, and to admire her skill. However, although he is not disturbed enough to be in a hurry to seek revenge, fortune tosses a cookie into his lap shortly afterwards when Bosk and his companions hear a disturbance outside and go to investigate. It is the penal enslavement of one Lady Tina, the same thief who robbed Bosk (and Arn, the outlaw mentioned at the start of the previous chapter), who, having a previous conviction, is now to be punished in a manner that will tend to preclude further recidivism.

poises nib to finely milled rence parchment...listens intently

meral{Bretval} 13:42:30 pm CDT
~settles.....listens to her Master~

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:45:27 pm CDT

A female thief has her ear notched for a first offence and then enslaved for a second.

ahyoka{GS~O} 13:46:55 pm CDT

Better to be enslaved than lose one or both hands, girl would think. Can't serve paga without hands, or do a few other things ~smiles~

ruby~{Randolph}~t 13:47:07 pm CDT
indeed my Jarl
thievery is not tolerated by a Woman... only Port Kar recognizes the Caste of Thieves

Master of one 13:47:51 pm CDT
~ laughs @ ahyoka

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 13:48:20 pm CDT

It seem the Lady Tina is known to the authorities ... and by Gorean standards the loss of a hand is not that bad

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:48:33 pm CDT
yes ahyoka, although girls can be most innovative !!!!!!

ahyoka{GS~O} 13:49:20 pm CDT
~grins~ that they are, Jarl. Might be a bit odd to look at though.

meral{Bretval} 13:49:22 pm CDT
slavery is probably worse punishment to a FW

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:50:25 pm CDT
yes probably mea

ruby~{Randolph}~t 13:51:57 pm CDT
girl read a term in Chapt 3 she had not heard before

meaning her use in the furs

"her pelt for an hour"

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 13:52:28 pm CDT
almost certainly, mea *wink* but slavery can have its good sides

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:52:53 pm CDT
smiles at My girl, must remember that

meral{Bretval} 13:53:26 pm CDT

there are no bad sides to slavery my Master.....weg

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:54:12 pm CDT

nicely said, mea

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 13:55:48 pm CDT
~lol~ Wwe can discuss that in the pelts... a term that makes perfect sense on Gor

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 13:57:09 pm CDT

~moving on~

She scores a karma point for her quiet acceptance of her fate, and when she is sold, Bosk decides that a nimble-fingered wench possessed of an unusual skill might come in handy, and buys her for the economical price of one silver tarsk. They then return to the tavern for their interrupted lunch and concomitant entertainment.

ruby~{Randolph}~t 13:59:08 pm CDT

indeed Master Bretval

there was another thing too ruby learned in this Chapter

when serving a hot drink ie paga..a slave should test the temp against her cheek..winks to her sisters

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:59:54 pm CDT

better than an elbow ruby !!!!!

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:00:27 pm CDT
Given Tarl... er... Bosk's history it makes sense He would appreciate the skill of the thief ...

meral{Bretval} 14:00:39 pm CDT
that does make sense ruby

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:00:46 pm CDT

better than burning a Frees lips my Jarl

meral{Bretval} 14:00:54 pm CDT
lol Jarl

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:01:19 pm CDT
Yes, Bretval, Bosk always seems to gather the skills around him that he needs.

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:02:00 pm CDT
yes, ruby, kisses the girl

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:02:23 pm CDT
*grin @ ruby* and to think there is a least one Master that thinks GRS is a waste of My time

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:03:01 pm CDT

smiles at mea, knowing her elbow has been put to good use.

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:03:17 pm CDT

one can learn a lot at GRS ..Master Bretval

arella (GS~O~) 14:03:29 pm CDT

listening quietly with great intent~

meral{Bretval} 14:03:32 pm CDT

and girls knees Jarl

meral{Bretval} 14:03:58 pm CDT

agrees with ruby totally

ahyoka{GS~O} 14:04:25 pm CDT

A person can read the books 20 different times and still learn something new on the 21st time, so this one would not see something like this as a waste of anyone's time, should they wish to learn more. That is this humble girl's opinion.

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:04:32 pm CDT
Bretval, looking at todays attendance proves that persons opinion is in error.

meral{Bretval} 14:05:06 pm CDT

discussing the books always gives greater understanding

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:05:33 pm CDT

yes there is ruby... *LOL* so I will continue to 'waste' My time

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:06:13 pm CDT
agrees ahyoka, and discussing together does help in seeing more in the books.

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:07:01 pm CDT
time to move on to Chapter 4?? ?

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:07:05 pm CDT
same thinking mea, smiles

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:07:22 pm CDT
yes, ready

meral{Bretval} 14:07:29 pm CDT
yes Jarl.....smiles

ruby~{Randolph}~tq 14:07:46 pm CDT
yes please Master Bretval

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:08:42 pm CDT

Chapter Four

As Thurnock (Bosk’s peasant sidekick) and Rim amuse themselves with the tavern wenches, an astonishing coincidence brings the missing Elizabeth Cardwell (last mentioned in “Raiders”; numerous references in “Nomads” and “Assassin”) face to face with Bosk. He briefly recaps their prior history for the benefit of the reader: companions in peril, lovers, until Tarl Cabot in his wisdom decided to have Elizabeth returned to Earth, and Elizabeth, unwilling to leave Gor, fled the Sardar atop Tarl’s great tarn Ubar of the Skies. She now brings us up to date.

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:10:37 pm CDT

Elizabeth Cardwell was in Priest Kings too..wasnt She Vika of Treve?

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:10:48 pm CDT
Ah yes, Elizabeth (with a z) another ungrateful slut

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:10:51 pm CDT

Now I confess I found the return of Elisabeth a bit of a surprise...

meral{Bretval} 14:11:48 pm CDT
mea did too my Master

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:12:23 pm CDT
and if memory serves correct TC taught her the game of Kaissa..akin to Urthen chess

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:12:29 pm CDT
yes, Breval, but JN is good at interweaving the characters into the complete story of the books.

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:13:55 pm CDT

hmmm ungrateful slut, Randolph... I suppose that is one way to look at it... but for her wanting to stay on Gor and not return to Urth I understand

meral{Bretval} 14:14:25 pm CDT

was she ungrateful Jarl or......Gor had got into her blood and she had to stay by whatever means

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:15:22 pm CDT
yes, Bretval, thinks that is why she fled

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:15:57 pm CDT
She was adamant about not being returned to much so Bosk was losing patience...Elizabeth almost got a beating

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:17:08 pm CDT
Without wishing to jump ahead thinks she will show even more 'ungratefulness'

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:18:23 pm CDT

and she was Tarls companion at the time (I think) so He could have discussed it with her *shrug* both were really in the right and the wrong as I see it....

Seeking the freedom of the northern forests, Elizabeth fended for herself for a few days, with indifferent success (but, apparently, made out better than did Elinor; see last month’s Booknotes), until she was picked up by Panthers who, with true sisterly solidarity, announced that she didn’t deserve to join them nor, evidently, to be left alone to mind her own business. Shortly after she was sold to the keeper of the very tavern where she has been ever since.

It is plain that she now expects that Tarl will declare her the loser in their little game of hide and seek, and take her to his bosom once again; and the Tarl that she once knew would surely have done so without hesitation. Unfortunately for her, that Tarl no longer exists, and it is Bosk with whom she has to deal.

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:20:34 pm CDT
Yes, she was, I suppose I seldom warm to FW. (with the exception of Sophie of course)

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:20:48 pm CDT

if memory serves correct

Elizabeth was not Bosks FC...she was Vika of Treve..the last time He saw Her was in Priest Kings of Gor

natasha{Zoran}~t~ 14:22:15 pm CDT
slips in quietly, moving to the furs, listening intently to catch up

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:23:31 pm CDT

Yes, I like the way Tarl has developed into Bosk, becoming Gorean himself as time goes on with his experiences

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:24:23 pm CDT

Elizabeth was considered too feminine be a Panther Girl

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:25:09 pm CDT

hmmm tries to remember that ruby

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:27:36 pm CDT

To be fair, ruby she had been a slave at one time and FW... so neither would really fit in as a Panther Girl.. maybe if only a slave .. but not as a FW as well

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:32:01 pm CDT

true Master Bretval
however that point was made to Elizabeth..thus she was sold to the Tavern proprietor

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:35:31 pm CDT
and when Bosk takes her to the this one briskly

the quote

"Gorean Men do not hurry when in the furs"

ahyoka{GS~O} 14:36:25 pm CDT
~perks and smiles~

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:36:34 pm CDT
For starters, as she is a paga slave and he has just bought a cup of paga, he enjoys her in an alcove, no more gently nor more harshly than he would have treated any other paga slave. Elizabeth observes that Tarl, or Bosk as he now is, is still angry with her for fleeing from him, and taking his vengeance on her, to which he replies that he is only treating her as the paga slave she is. Now for my money Elizabeth has put her finger on it and Bosk is in denial, but as he points out, she chose her course of action and must lie on the bed that she has made for herself, and he leaves her to her fate while he goes in search of Talena. But first he informs Sarpedon the tavernkeeper that “Tana”, as she is now named, is an Ar-trained pleasure slave and ought to be working as such.

So you know I chose to ignore Socrates comments about the authors real life as supposition and guess work

Let us then leave the former Elizabeth Cardwell, now a paga slave named Tana with some catching-up to do now that her owner knows the full extent of her training and capabilities, and the former Tarl Cabot, now a Gorean man named Bosk (at least, Tana, in horror and fright, proclaims him a Gorean man, and Bosk, with an indifferent shrug, admits that it is not impossible), until next month, when we shall discover what progress Bosk is making towards the rescue of his former companion, in our second dip into the pages of “Hunters of Gor”.

meral{Bretval} 14:37:27 pm CDT
a wonderful quote ruby

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:39:32 pm CDT
mmmm..yes mea..swoons closer to my Jarl

natasha{Zoran}~t~ 14:40:39 pm CDT


natasha rather fancies that quote

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:40:55 pm CDT
reads back to catch up - looks at this slut of mine - just smiles

meral{Bretval} 14:41:20 pm CDT

Tarl gets his sort of revenge telling the Tavern Keeper Elizabeth's true worth

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:42:23 pm CDT
Elizabeth now Tana...was trained in Ar..her worth increased ten fold when the proprietor..finds out shes an accomplished dancer

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:42:54 pm CDT

*weg* yes I suppose an Ahn is the furs could satisfy post females...

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:44:06 pm CDT

getting lost in her Master smile...nestles

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:47:06 pm CDT
not sure I would call it 'revenge'.. Tana had basically lied to her Owner and Bosk merely corrected the lies to the tavern keeper...
as said... laid in her bed and must live with it

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:48:12 pm CDT

meral{Bretval} 14:48:28 pm CDT

He didn't have to tell the Tavern Keeper though my Master

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:48:48 pm CDT
yes, Bretval, she did want to be truly Gorean and now she is

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:49:21 pm CDT

Bosk is Gorean through and through now...He takes no idle nonsense from anyone anymore ..Free or slave

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:50:25 pm CDT
I do agree Bosk 'put the boot in' as it were

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:51:23 pm CDT

But He did mea... it was truly a matter of Honour.. He knew the truth and had to set the record straight

meral{Bretval} 14:52:11 pm CDT

and she stole his tarn my Master

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:52:57 pm CDT

lol, mea, and not just any tarn but Ubar of the Skies

meral{Bretval} 14:54:06 pm CDT
has to ask.....does the Tarn come back my Master?

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:54:10 pm CDT
yes mea She did..and a point well taken

Bosk never saw His beloved "Ubar of the Skies" again

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:54:55 pm CDT

that she did... but the tarn did eventually return to Him... sor a matter of borrowing or stealing *grin* and she paid a price of it

meral{Bretval} 14:55:34 pm CDT

oh no......mea liked that Tarn

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:56:58 pm CDT

He did return ruby.. but in sorry state...

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:57:57 pm CDT
Thinks Ubar appears in later books.

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:58:27 pm CDT

oh...waits to read of Bosks Tarn to return

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:59:03 pm CDT

of course I may have My time lines confused

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 15:00:33 pm CDT

At any rate any further questions or comments?

ruby~{Randolph}~t 15:01:20 pm CDT
nothing more from a girl Master Bretval..thank You

meral{Bretval} 15:01:43 pm CDT
