Captive of Gor - book 7
Chapter 4 - 'The Slave Capsule"
Chapter 5 - "Three Moons"

Master Bretval - Moderator
Master Pax

ruby{Randolph}~t - scribe

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 13:42:06 pm CST
I think Wwe can begin....

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:42:19 pm CST
OK, listens

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 13:43:07 pm CST
Chapter Four

A man emerges from the small UFO that was chasing her, and Elinor now sees a larger one in the clearing - a ship, she calls it. Seeing unconscious girls being loaded aboard it, she makes a desperate bid for freedom, using the last weapon left to her, the knife, but is promptly zapped with what we might as well call a phaser. Even the man she knifed during her intended escape seems to bear her no ill-will for this, and the leader calls her "superb" - as though, there being no real risk of her escaping, they might as well applaud her spirit for the attempt. All that annoys the unnamed leader is that she scratched her face in the fight, and might have disfigured herself.

ruby~{Randolph}~t 13:43:52 pm CST

poises nib to milled rence parchment - listens intently

PAX 13:45:44 pm CST

Taking a seat to listen

meral{Bretval} 13:45:59 pm CST

Elinor really did try and fight to the very last

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:46:06 pm CST
although seem to remember that there are ointments on Gor that can fix such things - seem to remember Lita saying such things

meral{Bretval} 13:47:43 pm CST
yes Jarl......salve is used

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:47:57 pm CST
yes, mea, but she really had no chance of success. she comes across as a princess, looking forward to later on !!!!!

meral{Bretval} 13:48:26 pm CST
it heals like magic......especially whip marks

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 13:49:27 pm CST
It would again be apparent that Elinor and her psychological make up was well understood by the leader and that He was used to dealing with potential slave and took it is stride... only being upset by her scratching herself

meral{Bretval} 13:49:35 pm CST
It must have also been very frightening for her

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:49:47 pm CST
looks at mea's flawless icon, wonders if she uses it as a face cream !!!!!

ruby~{Randolph}~t 13:49:56 pm CST
yes the Men were fearing the rich insolent Elinor may of permanently marked herself while trying to escape the inevitable..making her price to go way down

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:50:49 pm CST
I suppose many urthern girls would fight like tigers, so they would be used to it

meral{Bretval} 13:51:17 pm CST
~whispers quietly to's using Nivea for years.....giggles~

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:52:11 pm CST
lol, mea.

ruby~{Randolph}~t 13:52:19 pm CST
chuckles my Jarl
Urth girls are barbarians

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 13:52:57 pm CST
agreed Randolph... truly a princess attitude.... perhaps one of the reason she was chosen.... she would not be as missed as a popular female

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 13:54:18 pm CST
would have been

ruby~{Randolph}~t 13:55:03 pm CST
the Man in charge has a three pronged scar...the scar that denotes a Thief ... a Caste recognized in Port Kar..apropos, for kidnapping Urth girls

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:56:29 pm CST
quite an interesting profession, stealing girls

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 13:57:42 pm CST
very true, ruby

moving on....

He deigns to explain how it was that her every escape attempt failed. Of course she was carrying a trace all this time - in her powder compact, as it happens, as well as in her car - and during the final stages of her flight, when it seemed as though the small UFO couldn't find her, it was in fact herding her. She was never in with a chance of escaping. The man shows off a bit more of their superior technology, and then as the sun rises on her last dawn on Earth, as well as the first one she has ever actually seen, she is forced on board the ship, loaded into a transparent cargo tube, and feels the ship take off. She is still conscious when she becomes aware that they are in free-fall and sees a man go by in metal-soled shoes. Presumably these are magnetised, affording him traction on the steel deck, and so they don't have artificial gravity, which must rule out any slight chance that the Priest-Kings had anything to do with this operation, and the forces Elinor feels during the closing paragraphs of this chapter must be to do with acceleration; but the man introduces anesthetic into her breathing air, and yet again Elinor loses consciousness.

ruby~{Randolph}~t 13:58:29 pm CST
my Jarl - Slavers are Merchants...kisses and winks

meral{Bretval} 14:00:44 pm CST
mea did wonder Who ordered these kidnappings

PAX 14:01:00 pm CST
Stealing girls could be a sport smiling

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:01:47 pm CST
yes, and also who actually makes the choices of the particular girls, as it is not random

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:02:11 pm CST
good question
this girl thought it was a routine taking of barbarian girls

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:02:14 pm CST
lol, must widen My merchanting activities

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:03:29 pm CST
Personally I am glad the P-K have been eliminated as the slavers...
not that Elinor would have any idea... but does bring Uus to the Others as the perpetrators

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:04:16 pm CST
my Jarl
Your slut had the impression the women are watched and followed for a long time before being captured

meral{Bretval} 14:04:43 pm CST
interesting my Master, mea hadn't thought of the Others

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:05:16 pm CST
shudders at the mere mention of the "Others"

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:05:55 pm CST
yes, ruby, wonders on what basis whether purely their beauty or maybe also a modicum of intelligence

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:06:30 pm CST
I agree with that, ruby... definitely not a quick snatch and run job....

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:06:58 pm CST
The Others, yes, but why??

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:07:45 pm CST
lol, Bretval, sounds like My capture of ruby !!!!!

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:09:18 pm CST
oh absolutely my Master this one thinks that beauty and intelligence are the leading factors for acquisition

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:11:35 pm CST
the equipment used and the travel between planets is far beyond the knowledge of the normal Gorean... and at this point in the stories the only ones that could be involved would be the Others... and it is possible even the leader of the slavers does not know who is at the top of the pyramid

meral{Bretval} 14:11:38 pm CST
maybe many girls are watched but not all taken

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:11:46 pm CST

indeed my a seedy paga Inn...captured, collared, whipped and branded...falls into a trance of You

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:14:28 pm CST
that would figure, mea, if they are selecting according to some thought out criteria. Makes sense

(Hopes you girls look under your beds before sleeping !!!!!)

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:15:29 pm CST
seems to remember using salve on My girl, too. - glances at mea, actually, Nivea

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:15:30 pm CST
in the intelligence consideration Wwe must also consider the adaptability of the mind of the girls taken.... can they adjust to the new reality without going crazy?

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:16:58 pm CST
yes You did care for Your slut tenderly...tears up

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:17:37 pm CST
agrees, Bretval. All barbarians in the books do seem to adapt.

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:19:46 pm CST
*nodding to Randolph* Barbarians on Gor.... but quite sophisticated on Urth

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:21:31 pm CST
And other thoughts or comments on the section?

meral{Bretval} 14:22:07 pm CST
If it is the Others kidnapping girls......barbarian girls cost a lot of coin, that's good business....minimum outlay for a high return

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:22:18 pm CST
In ancient times in wars the men would be slain and the women enslaved. So high class women in such a position would adapt

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:23:31 pm CST
wonders if barbarians were more difficult (and costly) to train

meral{Bretval} 14:23:42 pm CST
Those Hairy Monsters must be millionaires

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:23:56 pm CST
No other comments here, Bretval

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:24:37 pm CST
wonders if mea is looking at My face !!!!!

meral{Bretval} 14:24:53 pm CST
nothing from mea thank You my Master

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:25:17 pm CST
just Elinor Brinton...pleading relentlessly to know who They are and once again we hear the famous quote
"Curiosity is not becoming in a might be beaten for it"

Elinor is now certainly a kajira..branded a slave with a kef

meral{Bretval} 14:26:34 pm CST
mea doesn't think Jarl is a hairy Monster

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:27:18 pm CST
Not actually kidnapping the girls, mea... just giving the means to the slavers.... but Wwe have no answer as to Why? That is the real question.... what do the Others get from supporting the slave trade by supplying equipment and advanced weapons?

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:28:30 pm CST
now the end of the chapter....

We have probably knocked out and revived Elinor enough times for one instalment, so let us leave her for now on her mysterious voyage she knows not where (we do, though), until next month when she will find that instead of being a captive of no-one and nowhere in particular, she is now truly a "Captive of Gor".

meral{Bretval} 14:28:32 pm CST
mea would think They receive coin my Master

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:28:52 pm CST
Master Bretval
its a dilemma

meral{Bretval} 14:29:59 pm CST
or some girls become agents for the Others

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:31:31 pm CST
thinks thats true mea
wearing messages embedded in their collars...messenger girls, so to speak

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:32:16 pm CST
Shall I move on to Chapter 5

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:32:39 pm CST
or into their scalps and hidden by their hair - but let's not jump ahead !!!!!

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:32:56 pm CST
yes, I like this one, Bretval

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:34:12 pm CST

aren't the Others ...the kurii?

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:34:50 pm CST
yes, the hairy monsters

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:35:09 pm CST
Chapter Five

Elinor awakens to find herself on a world which, as she quickly divines, is not Earth. She is no longer aboard the ship, which is close at hand in an advanced state of disrepair. She suppresses her first impulse, which is to flee in panic, to check out the shipwreck in the hope of finding food. The ship itself is quite deserted and proves quite as thoroughly wrecked on the inside as the outside. To add to her woes, she is not the only scavenger interested in it, and she has to brave some of the local fauna in order to find anything to eat.

That done, Elinor clears off, and it is as well for her that she does, as another ship soon arrives, a silver one, and after the wreck has been inspected (this is done by a giant golden insectoid to which Elinor cannot put a name, though we can, of course) it explodes into an ionised cloud, perhaps by some demolition device. Elinor remains concealed, which is just as well for the sake of the narrative, as it would have been a very short story indeed if she had seized the opportunity to make herself known to the Priest-Kings. Given what we know of their tech capabilities, it's safe to assume they weren't looking very hard for survivors.

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:36:54 pm CST
That is a mystery at this point, ruby... *wink* stop jumping ahead

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:37:17 pm CST
Do we know what happened to the other girls placed in the tubes??

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:37:54 pm CST

indeed my Jarl
the Kur - incredibly strong and ferocious, and are carnivorous, even to eating humans...yikes

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:41:32 pm CST
I would have to assume that the others girls and the slavers survived the crash but in the ensuing confusion missed Elinor what had been some distance form the ship

meral{Bretval} 14:41:33 pm CST
Elinors instinct to survive no matter what took over

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:43:04 pm CST
well when Elinor spies the three glorious moons..she knows she was not on the world she always knew

plus the air is clean and clear..the grass rich with fertile loam

meral{Bretval} 14:43:52 pm CST
and the strange wildlife

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:48:34 pm CST
and the cities of Gor are dirty cesspools in part ruby... if they had the population of Gor it would be as bad as Urth... but the constant fighting does help keep the populations down

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:49:20 pm CST
Elinor, very reasonably, does indeed now flee in panic, and after encountering some more of the local scary wildlife, she drops in exhaustion. Then, having counted the moons, she falls asleep, just when we were thinking she might remain conscious for a whole chapter.

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:49:48 pm CST
and Gor is slightly smaller then urth - less gravity

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:50:10 pm CST
true enough Master Bretval
the gravity is much less can almost fly

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:50:45 pm CST
oh Master...laughing...same thought as always..kisses

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:51:13 pm CST
lol, yes ruby

Bretval {meral}: Scholar~ Warrior~Merchant 14:51:43 pm CST
Any other thoughts or comments?

meral{Bretval} 14:52:07 pm CST
none from mea thank You my Master

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:52:20 pm CST
lol Bretval, a princess, keeps falling asleep
