If anyone has a topic for this evenings EForum then whisper it to me now. We will begin in a few minutes

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:36:49 pm CDT

Before we begin Forum I wish to thank all for their contributions and help in making the E timings such a success. The turnout was really good.

ruby~{Randolph}~t 13:37:24 pm CDT

poises writing nib to finely milled rence parchment - listens intently

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:38:27 pm CDT

OK, we have a topic. A quick reminder of the rules: Everyone is encouraged to contribute and say as they wish; be polite; stick to the point; no extraneous chit chat; keep all greets to whispers

ruby~{Randolph}~t 13:39:02 pm CDT
it was a successfully fun Festival, my Jarl

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:39:04 pm CDT
We have a topic, one moment

meral{Bretval} 13:39:04 pm CDT

~settles turning her attention to Jarl Randolph~

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:39:58 pm CDT

Topic 1 :

I keep hearing from others that many don't come into our H/home because it is the laughing stock of Gor... first what does that mean?.. and second.. how can each of us individually improve our home to dispel any such rumors?

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:41:55 pm CDT

I have only heard that from one or two disaffected people who come into GS. I wonder why they bother coming if they genuinely feel that way.

ruby~{Randolph}~t 13:42:21 pm CDT

ruby would like to know where these falsehoods originate from about Oour Home

karinda {GS} 13:42:47 pm CDT

Moves in quietly knowing forum has already begun.

meral{Bretval} 13:43:43 pm CDT

mea has only read upon the boards about what certain Ppeople think of Oour Home has never had anything personally directed at her

Bretval {meral}: 13:44:45 pm CDT

That may be the opinions of Oothers but without specifics there is no way to address the 'problem' IF there is one

personally I feel all Wwe can do as Wwe are until thater is a real tangible problem to be addressed and those Oothers can be ignored

ruby~{Randolph}~t 13:45:10 pm CDT

to Your point my Jarl..why bother coming to GS?..just to make silly drama?

Austin - Scholar- 13:45:14 pm CDT

May I ask.. being somewhat new.. I haven't been a part of Oour home long ago.. how is GS so different today from years past? and if it has changed a lot.. has the changes been good or not so

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:46:22 pm CDT

It is ages since I last visited another Gorean Home, when I did no one had really heard of GS to comment on it - but that was a few years ago

Austin - Scholar- 13:46:25 pm CDT

I agree with Randolph and ruby?...

Austin - Scholar- 13:46:58 pm CDT

waves to karinda to sit at my side

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:48:05 pm CDT

looks to Dak to comments as I know he has been around here a long time

also maybe Bretval

and although really really young, perhaps ruby

Austin - Scholar- 13:48:06 pm CDT

I honestly have not visited another Hhom... this is my Hhome.. and feel so a part of it.. and hopefully I can add... to enrich the Hhome

Austin - Scholar- 13:50:21 pm CDT

I think many are trying to help out to make our home more enjoyable.. I think compared to last years festival there were more Master taking charge of events... and not just waiting for the Captains to do all the work.. The slave girls have always done a great part in helping...

ruby~{Randolph}~t 13:50:30 pm CDT

my Jarl...that's a lot of history to unpack..chuckles

Bretval {meral}: 13:51:01 pm CDT
hmmm ... I suppose there are some that of late there may be a laxity in what is Gorean and what is not... but all are minor things on the whole
I suppose those things coult be addressed to make Oorr Homes more strict

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:51:04 pm CDT
Agrees, W/we are who W/we are. W/we do seem to be thriving from a numbers viewpoint so why change? W/we can always improve but do feel the nay sayers simply should 'bugger off' if they don't like U/us

~naia {CLH} 13:51:17 pm CDT

naia wouldn't say anything like the laughing stock.. there's alot fewer people around than there was when she first came... probably 13 or more years ago....

we went through a very rough time.... and lost a lot of people... it's not ever recovered back to what it was.. but there's still a good group of people.. and some are never going to try be happy anywhere...

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:51:26 pm CDT
Ooops sorry, that was less than polite.

rykl.{Keeper}~t~ 13:51:47 pm CDT
Slips in most quietly and listens, smiling at all present

karinda {GS} 13:53:30 pm CDT
Kicks the urts that bite her heels and crawls ocer to knee at tge side of Master Austin mouthing the words thank You Master

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:54:20 pm CDT

forgot naia had also been around a while. It does appear that Gor as a whole is less popular than in days gone by, so that would explain fewer numbers to some extent.

Austin - Scholar- 13:54:25 pm CDT

naia... and others how would you compare GS then to today?

Austin - Scholar- 13:54:55 pm CDT

reaches down and caress karinda's cheek.. and gives her a warm smile

Dak 13:55:03 pm CDT
well, ever since I been in Gor, many in poolside criticized it, didn't like it becuz females were slaves, , been to a number of other sites over the years, and they are all different, didn't want to adjust to their ways, so just stayed here, some things are different here, now, but I still do as I have always done, *s, and just ignore what others do !

~naia {CLH} 13:56:26 pm CDT

naia agrees with that statement too Jarl Randolph.... before she settled back here... she did a lot of looking around at other sites she had traveled to in the past...and none of them seem to have the numbers they did a dozen years or so... so maybe Gor is somewhat slacking off as a whole...

Bretval {meral}: 13:57:04 pm CDT
Hear, hear, Dak

ruby~{Randolph}~t 13:57:30 pm CDT
exactly Master Dak
ignore the nay sayers..and do all Wwe can to keep our Home thriving...way too much time spent on negatives instead of the positives

Austin - Scholar- 13:58:00 pm CDT

Wonder if modern day technology with Facebook and twitter.. has any part in the decline... Chat room may be old ... LOL for us elderly ones.. chuckles

ayli{Dak} ~chain sister to libi~ 13:58:00 pm CDT

exactly my Master smiles

~naia {CLH} 13:58:06 pm CDT

Master Austin... naia's not sure how to word what the difference she sees....

karinda {GS} 13:58:39 pm CDT

karinda has never been to a different home. so she would be unsure of how other Gorean sites are.

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 13:59:01 pm CDT

agrees with Dak and naia

Austin - Scholar- 13:59:09 pm CDT
Dak you carry a lot of wisdom

karinda {GS} 13:59:49 pm CDT

Nods in agreement with Master Austin. Thinking that is a major contributor

rykl.{Keeper}~t~ 13:59:58 pm CDT

This girl thinks that maybe people just don't read like they use to therefore the books don't have that cult following anymore and new people just don't seem to know about it

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:00:22 pm CDT

the only other Gorean sites ruby has ever visited were with my Jarl...unwelcoming to say the least

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:00:47 pm CDT
very likely true, Austin. Perhaps a reason there are fewer younger ones who go for the new technology

ayli{Dak} ~chain sister to libi~ 14:01:01 pm CDT
tries to remeber a time before a time with no technology but cant

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:01:01 pm CDT
oh thats an excellent point ry..nodding

~naia {CLH} 14:01:02 pm CDT
and some dont want to invest in the time it takes to learn it either rykl....

Bretval {meral}: 14:01:28 pm CDT
At one point Wwe were down to 2 Captains and half a dozen slaves...
so I would say Our Home is in very good condition

Austin - Scholar- 14:01:42 pm CDT
Agrees with rykl's thoughts... I personally have to fight with my young ones to read ... they would rather do video games.. or see youtube

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:02:10 pm CDT
agrees ry, also JN is not exactly PC

rykl.{Keeper}~t~ 14:02:49 pm CDT

Exactly Master Austin
If it's not on YouTube or a movie....they don't know about it and won't care to invest the time

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:03:04 pm CDT
smiles at your slut, Dak, so sweet.

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:04:10 pm CDT
indeed Master Bretval
former fg snowrose..sat alone on Wednesdays in the kennels for nearly a year...very few girls were in training etc

ayli{Dak} ~chain sister to libi~ 14:04:12 pm CDT

girl might be apart of the millennial generation but she does love to read books

karinda {GS} 14:04:26 pm CDT

Nods at the cganging social networking and lack of reading...noting bitg probably contribute. But girl believes our home is still doing just fine.

Austin - Scholar- 14:04:30 pm CDT
Definitely agree with Randolph .. the PC world has taken over .. and in my humble opinion.. Have gone wayyy to far.. some things that are not acceptable now are just silly

Austin - Scholar- 14:06:54 pm CDT

pulls karinda to my lap... so I may whisper about biological technology to her.. chuckles

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:08:26 pm CDT

Any other comments on this topic??

rykl.{Keeper}~t~ 14:08:49 pm CDT

Nothing more for this one

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:09:07 pm CDT

none from Your slut, my Jarl

ayli{Dak} ~chain sister to libi~ 14:09:14 pm CDT

none from this one Jarl thank You for asking

meral{Bretval} 14:09:19 pm CDT

nothing from mea thank You Jarl

karinda {GS} 14:09:21 pm CDT

Grins and wiggles comfy on His lap...leaning clise to hear His smooth vioce whisper in her ear

Bretval {meral}: 14:10:06 pm CDT

*LOL* I agree Austin... the needed and necessary changes in the RT have gone overboard and now inflict on things that should be personal and nobody else's business

karinda {GS} 14:10:14 pm CDT
Nothing from the paga slut Jarl.

Austin - Scholar- 14:10:34 pm CDT
As far as trying to improve GS.. I think I am going to try and be more inventing to new guest.. and help them with any question they have.. and also if there is an event.. be there as much as I can.. and if needed lead..

I also feel like I need to encourage the Captains more... their job is difficult.. in maintaining a balanced atmosphere here

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:11:39 pm CDT
As a Summary: The consensus seems to be that in the round GS is in pretty good shape. Adverse comments from one or two nay sayers are irrelevant to the overall good standing of our Home.

Austin - Scholar- 14:11:48 pm CDT
Nothing more from me Randolph

Dak 14:13:08 pm CDT

about the only way a person can understand Gor is reading the books, I read them twice, and I got more out of them second time, I have 2 full sets of the books thru the first 25, , and an online set thru the 29th book

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:13:19 pm CDT

Anyone have another topic whisper now

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:16:00 pm CDT
Hmmm, the scene has gone into spasms

Jarl Keeper ~ Captain ~ Scholar 14:16:17 pm CDT
~Nodding a quiet greeting one and all so as not to disturb the Forum~

~Hugging rykl tightly~

Austin - Scholar- 14:16:30 pm CDT

Chuckles see what happens when we talk ill about the PC world..

Jarl Keeper ~ Captain ~ Scholar 14:17:04 pm CDT

I cannot stay long, first day back at work but good to be here.

rykl.{Keeper}~t~ 14:17:27 pm CDT

-snuggles safely into that hug hoping to stay safe from further room-quakes-

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:18:15 pm CDT

Topic 2:

Picking up on Dad's point on reading the books. Should slaves be assigned books to be read as part of their training?

When is Bretval re commencing book club? and is this a way to better understand Gor.

Austin - Scholar- 14:18:57 pm CDT

Chuckles.. Dak I never knew you were Randolph's son.. you that old.. LOL

Frederick 14:19:03 pm CDT

so it was not just me then, meral

karinda {GS} 14:19:41 pm CDT

YES

Dak 14:19:55 pm CDT

they should be encouraged to read them, I always encourage it, and it seems like they progress much faster, *s*

meral{Bretval} 14:20:04 pm CDT

no Master Frederick.....everything went criss cross

karinda {GS} 14:20:36 pm CDT
There is vast knowledge to be learned and understood in the books....that is why we come here.

Frederick 14:20:39 pm CDT

yes, same here, mea

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:20:49 pm CDT
Oops, apologies Dak - I blame the auto correct, and not my own incompetence

Jarl Keeper ~ Captain ~ Scholar 14:22:04 pm CDT
Whilst I agree that ready the book is very very helpful to understanding Gor and should be read.

I do not think it should be made part of the training for a simple reason. Time.

Our training is already more intense than any other site and as an English teacher reading books is good but learning is achieved through discussion of text, analysing text, understanding of the text, not the mere reading of it.

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:22:11 pm CDT

I agree with Dak, it is essential for any who come here to read at least some of the books

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:22:16 pm CDT

my Master..yes this one agrees reading at least one book should be read for training lessons...ruby recommended such when re-vamping the red silk lessons, just recently that have been approved by the Council

Dak 14:22:25 pm CDT

I'm to old to be any's son, *s*

Bretval {meral}: 14:23:05 pm CDT
Given non problems Book Club will resume Tuesday, Randolph

and nay one that needs a copy of the books I have those.. *grin* no guarantees on the quality though

meral{Bretval} 14:23:36 pm CDT
mea has found a much greater understanding of the books attending GRS......discussing each chapter makes the book come to life

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:23:41 pm CDT
partly agrees Keeper, and that is where book club comes into it. Discussing the books is so helpful in gaining a wider understanding of the meaning behind the text

Jarl Keeper ~ Captain ~ Scholar 14:23:46 pm CDT

I agree that reading of the books should be encouraged, no argument there.

Austin - Scholar- 14:24:37 pm CDT

Wondering if Dak can email me a set of the books...

Dak 14:25:37 pm CDT

I believe in reading them in order because they always refer to thinks in previous books !

Dak 14:26:23 pm CDT
I can, Friend *s*

Austin - Scholar- 14:26:55 pm CDT
Thank you Dak..

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:27:00 pm CDT
Agrees with Dak, JN is very repetitive so reading in order does give the 'journey' some continuity and refreshes what has gone before.

rykl.{Keeper}~t~ 14:27:31 pm CDT
girl wishes she had more time to read....her RT time already has a pile of books waiting for her to read....it's a never ending cycle

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:27:58 pm CDT
I have the books on kindle, they only cost about $4 a book

Jarl Keeper ~ Captain ~ Scholar 14:29:29 pm CDT
~Nodding to rykl~
Indeed little one, something we both have to deal with.
~Holding My slave close as always.~

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:29:58 pm CDT
moving across the pond...$8.99 on e-books here

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:31:08 pm CDT
hmm, no tax on books here, maybe I confused $ with

whispers across the room to ry how much of age giggles

Bretval {meral}: 14:34:56 pm CDT
*shrug* as I said I have 33 books... but not sure of the quality

as for book club I only expect members to read 2 or there chapters at a time... it does take time to get through them in book club

rykl.{Keeper}~t~ 14:34:57 pm CDT

Wiggles her ass from the heat of the slap

Ohhh my Jarl, can we pretend it is and maybe Jarl can slap the ass more?

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:35:39 pm CDT
To Summarise:

Reading the books is essential to understanding Gor
Some think adding at least one to the slave training would be advantageous
Book Club is beneficial and due to recommence imminently under the leadership of Bretval.

rykl.{Keeper}~t~ 14:35:46 pm CDT
Master Bretval
Which book will You be doing on Tuesday??

Bretval {meral}: 14:35:59 pm CDT

that is all from Me Randolph

Jarl Keeper ~ Captain ~ Scholar 14:36:50 pm CDT
~Slapping the other cheek~
That was cheeky!

~Laughing~
There is a place in the world for a good pun!

Jarl Keeper ~ Captain ~ Scholar 14:37:29 pm CDT

~Nodding in agreement to Randolph~

Bretval {meral}: 14:37:30 pm CDT

Book Nine.... Marauders of Gor, rykl

rykl.{Keeper}~t~ 14:38:07 pm CDT

Kisses His cheeks for good measure

This one has been called a cheeky monkey by more than on Jarl

Kisses those cheeks again

rykl.{Keeper}~t~ 14:39:10 pm CDT

Thank you Master Bretval
girl thinks she is in the middle of book one
That would be a whole lot of Sunday night and Monday reading to catch up

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:40:03 pm CDT
Looks around for any other comments

Jarl Randolph - GS Advisor - Owner of ruby~ 14:40:58 pm CDT

Thank you all for attending what turned out to be a very interesting discussion

and on that note I close EForum for this week

kisses the scribe x

ruby~{Randolph}~t 14:45:34 pm CDT

rolls up the sacred scroll..as always a privilege to serve my Jarls Home
