"Captive of Gor" - Book 7
Chapter One - The Brand

attending:

Master Bretval - Moderator

Okay lets begin..

Captive of Gor Chapter One

Here we find ourselves viewing the scene through the eyes of a narrator who is by no means Tarl Cabot, even under his new name of Bosk, nor even a man, but a woman who announces that her name was formerly Elinor Brinton and that her master is now that same Bosk, and that she was formerly of Earth, and that she is a kitchen slave worth fifteen pieces of gold. This shows that we are still on the gold standard as far as slave prices are concerned, of course. In later books women become cheaper.

ruby~{Randolph}~t 13:49:26 pm CST

poises pen to the parchment..listens intently

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:49:53 pm CST
listens

meral{Bretval} 13:51:53 pm CST
that is a lot of gold for a kitchen slave

ruby~{Randolph}~t 13:52:56 pm CST
hmmm..oh yes...Elinor Brinton..used to Men pleasing her.. resenting the people who would fall under her spell..that will soon change

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 13:52:58 pm CST
Always amazed by how many Urth girls end up on Gor....

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:53:10 pm CST
yes, my thoughts mea. Instinctively dislike the girl. I think we have all known girls like her, and wish we could have sent them to Gor !!!!!

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:54:02 pm CST
yes Bretval, there seemed to be many girl's in the 'tubes'' on the ship.

meral{Bretval} 13:54:10 pm CST

mea still knows girls like her Jarl

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 13:56:05 pm CST
Hope they were spread out over the globe... or they would have been in the papers...

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:56:11 pm CST
Yes, mea, somehow can better deal with girls like that now - age talking I suppose !!!!!

meral{Bretval} 13:56:32 pm CST
true my Master lol

ruby~{Randolph}~t 13:57:03 pm CST

chuckles to my Master...now that is a truism..Captive of Gor was published in 1972..the beginning of the Womens Lib revolution

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:57:58 pm CST
In some books it mentions girls from different countries. Although in France something like several hundred girls disappear every year. Probably true for many other countries - probably all end up in Gor !!!!!

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 13:58:06 pm CST
moving on....

Elinor tells us a little of an Earth upbringing in which it is plain that all the plums that life has to offer the rich and beautiful fell effortlessly into her lap, with the signal exception of any kind of meaningful affection, let alone love. Indeed, her own mother callously poisoned seven-year-old Elinor's favourite pet for some trifling offence. (Pay attention. This will be important eventually - and it's one of Norman's better pieces of storycrafting.) As an adult, Elinor has little interest in women and less still in men, except as objects to be manipulated or spurned as it pleases her whim. Although she is independently wealthy thanks to her late father's estate, she manages to get her mother to pull enough strings to land her a modelling job, and she might have led an empty but largely blameless life thereafter

meral{Bretval} 13:59:29 pm CST
with all her own way and wealth she isn't happy

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:01:12 pm CST
Hmmm... few in Canada go missing in a year... maybe 10 to 20...
guess the slavers don't like the winters... can't tell what they look like under their parkas

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:01:47 pm CST
Maybe that sparked the character in this book ruby. Actually, always think girls like her have something missing in their lives rt.

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:03:35 pm CST
nodding mea
Elinors parents were indifferent to her...never showing any affection..

my Master..last week You mentioned JN had many psychological aspects in His writing..thinking this is a prime example

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:04:03 pm CST
JN apparently did not have a good opinion of models....

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:05:16 pm CST
true enough my Jarl..and poisoning a childs pet...just sighs at the inhuman cruelty

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:05:50 pm CST
Did the real JN teach psychology at a US University??

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:06:58 pm CST
in RT the author was a philosopher... so He would have at lest a minimum of education in psychology... based on My own schooling

meral{Bretval} 14:07:00 pm CST
very interesting question Jarl

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:08:15 pm CST
Oh, interesting, Bretval. So that is where all of his thinking comes from

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:09:36 pm CST

yes He did my Master..a Professor in psychology...Dr John Lange

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:10:36 pm CST
Yes, ruby, there is a thread of human logic through all of his books (or the ones I have read) rather than pure science fiction

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

He started writing on a bet and because of the Women's Liberation Movement... He wanted women to be classic 50's woman as I see it

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:12:13 pm CST
As I understood it anyway

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:13:32 pm CST
Yes, I can see that, Bretval. Although looking at Scandinavia in the Middle Ages life was very much as in some of the books. - probably true of other parts of Europe too.

meral{Bretval} 14:14:50 pm CST
and even further back to ancient times in Greece and Rome

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:15:42 pm CST
it is also interesting that His female characters seem to be well-off.... again someone that would hit the papers should she go missing

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:15:47 pm CST
yes, exactly mea. actual slavery there

meral{Bretval} 14:17:11 pm CST

The Ottoman Empire.....all cultures seem to be represented

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:17:25 pm CST
well it shows how times have changed since '72, thank goodness....Elinor Brinton refers to her maid as "colored"...smh

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:17:39 pm CST
yes, that would certainly ensure they were well investigated - but Goreans are more intelligent than this from urth !!!!! so perhaps can get away with it.

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:18:23 pm CST
Pretty much Randolph.... He liked the world the way it was and did not want any changes...

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:19:34 pm CST
well, that was a general expression here in those days ruby - black was considered insulting - now it is the other way around.

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:20:09 pm CST
moving ahead....

But while she is still a young graduate - only a few weeks after she has begun her modelling career - she suffers an abrupt shock. In the privacy of her own apartment, and with absolutely no memory of how it got there, she discovers a painless but burned-in mark on her left thigh, and a matching character drawn on her mirror in lipstick. Unsurprisingly, she faints.

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:22:40 pm CST
yes my Jarl...here too across the pond...remembers well the segregation ... girls best friend wouldn't be served, and ruby didn't understand .. till she told ruby..its because i am a negro...had no clue at ten

meral{Bretval} 14:22:47 pm CST
It must have been a shock my Master......at least mea knew when she was branded.....smiles at the memory

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:23:52 pm CST
Yes, wonders why that was done to her

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:26:35 pm CST

oh dear...yes Elinor discovers she has been branded with the kef..on her upper thigh...

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:27:50 pm CST
marking her as slave my Master..however she didn't know it..."yet".. caresses Masters brand with pride

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:28:03 pm CST
*kiss* I agree, mea.... truly a shock... and Wwe must admire the slavers...
I would assume Elinor lived in a very 'safe' building so getting in and out would not be that easy

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:28:12 pm CST
Thinks she got off lightly. In one of the books the branding was portrayed of burning out the last vestiges of freedom and something the slave remembered.

meral{Bretval} 14:29:28 pm CST

how was it done without her knowing.....that's a puzzle

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:29:31 pm CST
Didn't they disguise themselves as police??

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:30:52 pm CST
Different strokes for different folks, Randolph
think They wanted her off-balance and unsure of herself

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:31:39 pm CST
nodding my Master..burning out all of the fibers of any will left in a girl...turning her over to please Men..that was their sole purpose..a mere commodity for the pleasure of Men

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:32:53 pm CST
Yes, ruby, let's hope Miss Brinton has it done with the whip.

yes disguised as Law Enforcers .. thus no one would think twice as they entered Elinors apartment

meral{Bretval} 14:33:59 pm CST
~eyes go wide and shudders hearing Jarl~

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:34:27 pm CST

my Master
gulps..girl is sure Elinor will feel the kiss of the whip

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:34:43 pm CST
A possibility Randolph they did use that method in a Chapter or two....
but even police are not allowed to wander about such buildings without an escort... at least not these day

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:36:43 pm CST

smiles at the stuttering ruby

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:39:13 pm CST

given her attitudes about Men I am pretty sure she will become very familiar with the whip, ruby

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:40:19 pm CST

I think Wwe can stop here for now...

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:41:03 pm CST

indeed Master Bretval..she will learn her collar well ... her place in nature, per Merchants Law...that of a slave .. a mere animal

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:42:05 pm CST
let's hope so, ruby. We can't have slaves with such an attitude can we??

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:42:56 pm CST
I thank Yyou all for attending and taking part ...
and of course My thank to ruby for Scribing

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:43:51 pm CST
tasting the fear curdling on her tongue...no my Jarl, Wwe cant have that at all...Your words ring clear as a pane of glass

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:43:54 pm CST
Many thanks for leading another interesting GRS, Bretval. Very enjoyable.

kisses the scribe

meral{Bretval} 14:44:27 pm CST
