Snake's capture

Bad things first:

- Snake was trying the imprudence viewer. What he didn't recognize was, that it didn't keep record of the open chat. So a lot of the RP is lost.

- The capture itself would have been invalid, breaking so many of our own AND (as seen later) even similar rules of their own SIM:
* One of the two raiders rezzed right next to the camp without arriving at the docks as they should have.
* He broke with a single emote through a bolted door, which is not possible (using those very invalid functions at the weapon-HUD)
* Without any further RP they brandished their swords and attacked Snake (sure... you break in and attack directly someone behind the door which you haven't seen before? You not even know, that he's there? Yeeeeeah!)
* bound and de-armed with one emote each (using prefabbed gestures) instead of each 3 good lines
* After capturing Snake, they ran around, jumped over walls, their weapons still drawn, jumped from bridges of 40 meter height into the water, swam with him (poor savage almost drowned).... all not very well RPed. But they might have been desperate, because they didn't find the way to the docks? *grins*
* after they finally found the docks, they wanted to leave with a tarn (but there Snake really had to complain and remind them, that tarns don't cross open water, no matter what)

- Later they collared snake and used without any emote/RP the collar commands to put him into kneeling position. So Snake played around it that he would have been kicked in the hollows of his knees etc.

And now for the good things:

Snake was curious what would happen, so he didn't complain, just made a remark, but accepted the capture as valid. And it was fun RP afterwards. So, here's the story:

After Snake was captured, the two raiders sailed with him a long way north. Snake was unconcious most of the time, his body weak from the many punches, kicks and attack with the blade.
Finally they arrived in a city he had never seen before. They cut off all his clothes and forced him to take a bath. After a lot of struggling and splashing with the water the savage finally found some pleasure in the well perfumed water, the smell reminding him of the flowers in the jungle of Tidra.

 As he was fresh and clean they put a collar around his neck. Snake struggled and kicked at the warriors, but they knocked him down several times. Finally they brought him to a woman... as far as the confused savage understood, it was the future FC of one of the warriors and he - Snake - should have been a present for her and serve her as fighting and guarding slave. Of course our brave and proud savage refused to do so and repeated again and again, that they should bring him back to his island.

Finally Snake was left alone with the woman. Though with a collar around his neck, leashed to the woman's hand, he could have easily put up resistance and escape her... if his body wasn't already that weakened from the punches and kicks as well as from the tormenting hunger and thirst.

She wanted to give him a new name and be nice to him, offering him a good life and candy and sleeping in soft furs, but our stubborn savage refused defiantly, repeating again and again, that his name is Snake and he wants to go back to his tribe-brothers.

The woman got angry and lured the boy to a man-sized chest in a corner of the room. She promised Snake candy at the bottom of the chest and as he leaned over to take a closer look, his one healthy eye searching for the candy, she suddenly pushed his body into the chest and slammed the cover shut. Snake was trapped in the wodden box!

For a while he knocked against the wood from inside, demanding to let be gone back to his tribe. But after a while he dropped with exhaustion. His shouts lowering to a mumble as he curled up in the chest and finally fell into a nervous sleep.

((At this point the woman had to get some sleep RL and Snake had to go to dinner. Story continues two hours later. At his return  he informed the woman, who was online again also, but busy.))

As Snake woke up, he was surprised by the bright light. He needed a while to recognize, where he is. To his surprise the top of the chest was opened and he could get out. He rised from the chest, stretched and flexed his sore muscles.. ((Brent Clavenham, a slaveboy had opened the chest while Snake was sleeping - online, but afk - in the chest. He didn't close the chest again, so it was left open)) But still he was chained to the chest, as the woman had locked the chain of the collar to it while the savage was locked into the tight prison. He set there for a while on the chest and considered how to escape his fate as a boy on knees....

((The upwaking etc. needed about 15 minutes. Snake sat there for another 10 minutes or more, waiting for a continuation of the RP, but nobody appeared. At that point he recognized, that chatlogs were not saved to the harddisc, so he changed the settings and relogged. From now on the chat-log:))

[11:11] Snake after escaped from the chest by some stranger's help, but still chained to the heavy crate sits down on the wood and considers what to do
[11:24] Snake after considering a long time, looking around him to find anything to break the chain scratches his head. His fingers sliding over the metal ornament he got as a present many, many moons ago

[11:25] Snake suddenly beams getting an idea
[11:26] Snake's finger wander from the face grab to the collar. The fingertips sliding along the rim of the ring of metal until they find the spot where the warrior snapped it in
[11:27] Snake detaches the face grap from his ear. And starts to poke with the one needle-like 'leg' of the spider in the lock of the collar
[11:29] Snake pokes around in the lock. He knows that he seen the warriors on Tidra opening locks like this. Desperately he's poking and poking.. nervously in the beginning without success
[11:30] Snake takes a deep breath and tries to calm down.

[waiting again]

[11:38] Snake after several ehns of trying suddenly hears a silent 'klick'. To his own surprise the collar snaps open
[11:39] Snake rubs his now bare neck. He places the collar on the crate and looks around in the room
[11:48] Snake climbs on the table to grab one of the swords fixed to the wall. It weighs heavy in his hand and seems to be not too sharp, but it might be helpful if he has to fight his way back to his island
[11:48] Atiya Bruun hears a dull thump, looking up she frowns "did you hear something dear?"

[voices in the background]

[11:51] Snake sneaks out of the house, looking around and finds the streets empty
[11:53] Atiya Bruun: well perhaps when you finally...oh my goodness!!
[11:53] Jahlayah Jumanya: a naked man!
[11:53] Jahlayah Jumanya: look...
[11:53] Jahlayah Jumanya points to the naked man..
[11:53] Atiya Bruun staggers back and clutches at her chest
[11:53] Atiya Bruun has left chat range.
[11:53] Jahlayah Jumanya has left chat range.
[11:53] Jahlayah Jumanya shouts: Sir, you forgot clothes
[11:54] Snake finds the baths easily and remembers his hair ornaments. He quickly enters the tipi of stone to grab his ornaments and leaves
[11:54] Snake as he leaves the baths gets surprised by two chuckling women and quickly runs away
[11:54] Jahlayah Jumanya has entered chat range.
[11:54] Jahlayah Jumanya has entered chat range.
[11:55] Atiya Bruun: be careful JJ
[11:55] Atiya Bruun: he was aremed
[11:55] Jahlayah Jumanya: he must have jumped into the water..
[11:55] Jahlayah Jumanya: why on gor was he naked?
[11:55] Snake hides in a corner and catches breath
[11:55] Atiya Bruun peers over the edge and looks down at the docks
[11:55] Atiya Bruun: how strange
[11:55] Jahlayah Jumanya: yes, maybe he was robbed..
[11:56] Atiya Bruun: i wonder what he was doing running around all naked like that!
[11:56] Atiya Bruun: has he no pride?!
[11:56] Jahlayah Jumanya: well.. he was not after my boots..
[11:56] Jahlayah Jumanya: he could not run on highheels.. it takes years of practice..
[11:56] Atiya Bruun giggles nervously
[11:56] Atiya Bruun: well those heels would certainly come in handy if he were to attack
[11:56] Atiya Bruun: come lets go see
[11:56] Jahlayah Jumanya: I would stand on his little toe...
[11:56] Atiya Bruun: he may be hurt
[11:56] Jahlayah Jumanya: yes.. lets take the stairs..
[11:57] Jahlayah Jumanya has left chat range.
[11:57] Atiya Bruun has left chat range.
[11:57] Snake pricks his ears as he hears steps coming closer. He holds the unfamiliar weapon tight in his hand
[11:59] Jahlayah Jumanya has entered chat range.
[11:59] Atiya Bruun has entered chat range.
[11:59] Atiya Bruun stays back
[11:59] Jahlayah Jumanya: you are hurt?
[11:59] Snake frowns as the steps get closer
[11:59] Atiya Bruun places a hand on JJ
[11:59] Jahlayah Jumanya: my friend here is a green...
[11:59] Jahlayah Jumanya pushes atiya in front of her..
[12:00] Snake holds the unfamiliar weapon in his shivering hand "You not come closer!"
[12:00] Jahlayah Jumanya: we wont...
[12:00] Snake desperate "Snake only want back to his tribe!"
[12:00] Atiya Bruun holds out a hand soothingly as she sees the man shift about almost nervously " is ok...please..just relax"
[12:00] Jahlayah Jumanya: wont we...
[12:00] Jahlayah Jumanya: you know you are naked?
[12:00] Atiya Bruun smiles gently, hoping to soothe the strange man
[12:00] Snake holds the blade in a firm grip, his few goods in the other hand
[12:01] Atiya Bruun whispers to JJ "he is clearly not from these parts"
[12:01] Atiya Bruun takes a step closer
[12:01] Jahlayah Jumanya looks how he holds the sword.. "don't cut yourself.." and she whiswers...
[12:01] Jahlayah Jumanya: no it seems not
[12:01] Atiya Bruun murmers gently as she approaches him
[12:01] Snake looks down at his own body, tehn up to the women and nods "mainslander warriors stole Snakes loincloth!"
[12:01] Atiya Bruun: it is ok...perhaps we can help you"
[12:01] Jahlayah Jumanya: maybe he likes candy..
[12:02] Atiya Bruun nods to JJ
[12:02] Atiya Bruun: maybe
[12:02] Atiya Bruun holds the mans gaze, her face serene as she says quietly "well perhaps we can find you put your weapon down Sir, you are in no harm here"
[12:02] Jahlayah Jumanya searches for her pouch and finds some rock candy.. she speaks like the man like she would do to an animal.. "here look what I have... candy.. yummie.." and she rubs her belly...
[12:02] Snake cautiously steps back till the wall stops his way. His whole body shivers "Snake not want can'di! Snake want home to tribebrothers!"
[12:03] Jahlayah Jumanya hears his words and pops the candy in her own mouth.. "too bad..."
[12:03] Atiya Bruun gathers her courage and steps closer her hand reaching out to him "you must be about some warm food and clothing before you find your way back home "
[12:04] abdell Amat has entered chat range.
[12:04] Snake relaxes a bit as the women seem nice. He lowers the blade a bit, but raises it up again as a warrior approaches
[12:04] Jahlayah Jumanya still chews on her candy and sees how the scarlet arrives..
[12:04] Atiya Bruun smiles gently at him, her eyes never leaving his face
[12:04] Snake shouts again desperate "Snake want home!!! You let Snake go!"
[12:05] Atiya Bruun soothes him with her gaze and murmers "put it are safe here.."
[12:05] abdell Amat: "Are you raising a weapon to me Sir?" he yelled towards the man
[12:05] Jahlayah Jumanya shakes her head at the histeric man.."we did not stop you.. we came to see if you were hurt.."
[12:05] Atiya Bruun looks back at Abdell and says quietly "he seems afraid Sir, he was just about to lay his weapon down"
[12:05] Snake shakes his head and points at the warrior "Snake not safe! Mainsland warriors always want put ring of metal around neck of hunter!"
[12:06] Jahlayah Jumanya grins.. "no sane person on gor would take you as slave.."
[12:06] Jahlayah Jumanya: I think he is a savage, sir..
[12:06] abdell Amat: "Sir sheath your weapon or I'll have to do what my codes permit me to do"
[12:07] Snake's heart beating faster and faster, almost ready to cut his own throat if they will try to collar him again."
[12:07] Atiya Bruun looks calmly at the man, her face gentle as she murmers "do as he asks, there is no need to be afraid here"
[12:07] Snake looks from the women to the warrior, considering. He lowers the weapon a bit "You no harm to Snake?"
[12:08] abdell Amat shakes his head towards the man "No I don't i'm even delaying the codes i live for , specially for you now sheath the weapon and tell us whats going on"
[12:09] Atiya Bruun whispers "do as he asks snake, then we can help you"
[12:09] Snake tilts his head a bit, not really sure, what the warrior said. His eyes wander to the woman in green before him and he asks her with a dry throat "He not harm Snake?"
[12:10] Atiya Bruun smiles softly and steps a lil closer, not really thinking this man will harm her she murmers softly "he is a good honorable warrior snake...he no harm snake"
[12:10] Snake finally nods and looks at the friendly woman. He places the blade on the barrel next to him
[12:10] Jahlayah Jumanya taps her foot impatient...."finally..."
[12:10] Atiya Bruun beams at him "there now see? That wasnt so hard was it?"
[12:10] Atiya Bruun gives her dear friend the look
[12:11] Jahlayah Jumanya sticks her dagger in one of the sheaths in her skirts...
[12:11] Snake almost whimpering "Snake want go home"
[12:11] Atiya Bruun places a gentle hand on his shoulder and asks quietly "where is your home snake?"
[12:12] Jahlayah Jumanya 's merchant instict comes up.. "I do not see... any reason why we should not keep this one.. Atiya"
[12:12] Jahlayah Jumanya: he is young and strong..
[12:13] Snake opens his other hand with his hair-ornaments in it, some jewels between all the bones and feathers he offers it to the woman in green "Snake pay for passage back to camp on Tidra!"
[12:13] Atiya Bruun glances at her friend in surprise, the thought not having even crossed her mind, she widens her eyes and clears her throat mumbling "oh! Well, I didnt think of that!"
[12:13] Jahlayah Jumanya looks to the bones and sticks in the mans hand.. "that won't pay you a sailing trip..."
[12:14] Snake pricks his ears as he hears the other woman, his one healthy eye sparkling "You promise"
[12:14] Atiya Bruun looks at the offering in his hand and screws up her nose somewhat, stepping back a lil she remarks "oh, well..lets about we just see about getting you a loin cloth and some food, dont get all upset again now"
[12:14] Jahlayah Jumanya looks to abdell: "sir, does that look like a free man to you... he sure looks like a boy to me, Sir"
[12:15] Snake growls at the woman in red and hisses "Snake no boy! Snake hunter of the raven-tribe on Tidra!"
[12:16] Jahlayah Jumanya nods.. "ah.. he has temper... how amusing.."
[12:16] Atiya Bruun places a firm but gentle hand on the mans arm "now, dont you go growling at my friend, it will surely get you into trouble"
[12:16] Snake: Have not been boy since....." *considers a moment, his eyes rolling to the sky* "... many, many..... MANY moons!"
[12:16] abdell Amat: Not because he's naked means he's a slave, lets hand him somthing to cover up
[12:16] Atiya Bruun: yes my thoughts exactly
[12:16] Jahlayah Jumanya 's voice goes low.."see he was a boy once.. so he can be one again..."
[12:16] Atiya Bruun: come with me boy
[12:17] Atiya Bruun: i mean snake
[12:17] Atiya Bruun: lets get you some clothing
[12:17] Atiya Bruun looks into his eyes, her own reassuring
[12:17] Snake smirks at the woman in red "Of course Snake was boy once. Every man was!"
[12:17] Jahlayah Jumanya shakes her head and clacks her tongue.. she would have collared the boy immediately.."he smells like a boy"
[12:17] abdell Amat: keep your words ladies", he said as he turned heading his way back to his guarding spot
[12:18] abdell Amat has left chat range.
[12:18] Atiya Bruun glances at her friend and chuckles despite herself, knowing her thoughts inside out, she rolls her eyes somewhat and turns back to snake "come with me, lets get you sorted"
[12:19] Snake confused at the woman's words sniffs at his armpits and mumbles "Snake know that bath is no good."
[12:19] Snake wrinkles his nose "Snake smell like flowers." *shakes his head* "No good"
[12:20] Cailin Rain has entered chat range.
[12:20] Atiya Bruun chuckles as he sniffs himself, her eyes dancing with humor "you dont smell too bad snake, but surely you will need some clothing and food in your belly?"
[12:20] Snake raises his eyebrows "Sor tad? Snake not want Sor tad! Snake want Tidra!"
[12:21] Snake nods and beams for the first time, showing his pearly white teeth "Food good!"
[12:21] Atiya Bruun raises her brow slightly "Snake, please do not get so excited, I am simply trying to help" seeing his teeth beam at her she chuckles and murmers "thats much better, come with me"
[12:22] Snake nods, ready to follow the woman trustfully
[12:22] Cailin Rain: greetings Mistresses
[12:22] Atiya Bruun smiles to the girl
[12:22] Cailin Rain: greetings kajirus
[12:22] Atiya Bruun: Tal girl I am just going to deal with this,
[12:23] Cailin Rain: smiles
[12:23] Atiya Bruun chuckles as the girl greets snake
[12:23] Jahlayah Jumanya laughs..
[12:23] Jahlayah Jumanya: see even a girl sees..
[12:23] Snake looks around, having heard the word 'kajirus' from the mainslanders and know that it means 'boy on knees'
[12:23] Atiya Bruun grabs his arm before he has another outburst
[12:23] Atiya Bruun: come with me snake
[12:23] Atiya Bruun: JJ lets go sort him out
[12:24] Atiya Bruun: celina, come along you may arrange some food for him
[12:24] Jahlayah Jumanya nods.."yes lets sort him out..."
[12:24] Cailin Rain: blinks wondering if she had made mistake
[12:24] Atiya Bruun: heel girl
[12:24] Cailin Rain: yes Mistress
[12:24] Snake raises his hand to the girl on knees, waving
[12:24] Snake ... and follows the woman in green
[12:25] Atiya Bruun stops for a moment at the cloth workers, grabs the first scrap of cloth she can find and hands over some coin, turning she tosses i at him "here snake, cover your bits, Im a lady!"
[12:26] Atiya Bruun grins at JJ and whispers "I still havent gotten used to seeing men in all their glory it seems"
[12:27] Jahlayah Jumanya hisses back.. "you are a green.....!"
[12:27] Snake grabs the cloth the woman tossed to him and stands there for an ihn, not aware of any sense of modesty as the savage that he is, but finally somehow binds the clothes around his waist
[12:27] Atiya Bruun blushes and hisses back "thats different!"
[12:28] Atiya Bruun nods "much better, now come along"

{entering the taverne}

[12:29] Atiya Bruun sits herself down at the table
[12:30] Cailin Rain: Master, may a girl serve you please?
[12:30] Atiya Bruun: come and sit here bo..snake
[12:30] Atiya Bruun: lets get some food inside of you
[12:30] Atiya Bruun: girl you may serve him anything he wishes, i will pay
[12:31] Cailin Rain: yes Mistress
[12:31] Snake stands nervously near the table, not knowing well how to use furniture
[12:32] Atiya Bruun chuckles softly as he fidgets around "you may sit as you wish snake, i dont mind"
[12:32] Snake finally imitates the woman in green and gets down on the chair, almost falling from it
[12:32] Atiya Bruun: perhaps on your knees will be more comfortable
[12:32] Atiya Bruun looks at him teasingly
[12:32] Cailin Rain: stifles a small giggle
[12:33] Cailin Rain: "Master , may a girl bring you anything to eat ro drink " she asked quietly
[12:33] Snake fidgets on the chair, trying this position and that... finally crosses his legs and sits on the chair like he would sit on the ground, trying to find his balance
[12:33] : Atiya Bruun OOC : lol
[12:33] Cailin Rain: ( chucklles ))
[12:33] Brent Clavenham has entered chat range.
[12:34] Brent Clavenham: greetings Mistress
[12:34] Brent Clavenham: Mistresses
[12:34] Jahlayah Jumanya: brent??
[12:34] Atiya Bruun: hmmm, i dont think he has a great idea of whats on offer girl, bring him a nice thick slab of bosk meat, with some bread and a large mug of ale
[12:34] Brent Clavenham: yes
[12:35] Jahlayah Jumanya: You are not in sais anymore?
[12:35] Cailin Rain: yes Mistress right away
[12:35] Brent Clavenham: no, my Mistress was furious at me
[12:35] Snake looks at the girls on knees, needs an ehn to recognize that she adressed him, as he's not used to be called 'Master'. With a smile he says "Snake is hunter, no Master"
[12:36] Snake adds and suddenly remembers the good taste of bosk-milk he sometimes gets from the mainsland-warriors and asks the girl "You have milk of bosk-cow?"
[12:36] Cailin Rain looks around seeing only pastries and such and walks quickly to the tavern to gather the needed foods , her lush hips swaying sweetly as she went

{some conversation between the two women and the slaveboy. Not important for this RP, so left out}

[12:43] Snake looks nervously around, his throat sore and hungry for liquid and something to eat, but also desperate to find his way home to his little islan. Also afraid that the evil warriors who abducted him from his island would come back. To calm down and as he doesn't know, what the mainslanders are talking about anyways, he starts to tie the ornaments back into his hair
[12:44] Atiya Bruun glances at snake, frowning as she watches him fiddle with his hair and the rather strange looking ornaments he is fixing to the strands, her gaze travels over his fit, virile body appraisingly as she considers his value to her
[12:45] Cailin Rain has entered chat range.
[12:47] Cailin Rain slips next to the Hunter and slides the tray onto the table , slipping a knife and fork onto the tray she hd grabbed up on her way out of the tavrn . then takes up the Tankard of ale she lifted it to her full lips , pressing them warmly to the side and raised the tankard over her bowed head " Master , she brings you your ale and lovely tray of foods, may you be refreshed by it after your long travel "
[12:48] Jahlayah Jumanya: I am too angry Atiya..
[12:48] Jahlayah Jumanya: on days like this, I miss hunting..
[12:48] Jahlayah Jumanya gasps, hoping no one heard her words..
[12:48] Atiya Bruun shoots a glance at her friend, eyebrow raised
[12:49] Snake smiles gratefully at the serving girl and grabs the tankard hastily with both hands, emptying it quickly and starts to cough as it's not the expected bosk-milk but some bitter liquid
[12:50] Cailin Rain watches Master sputter , her eyes on the tray , she quickly says " Master on the tray is bosk milk " she quickly lowered her eyes in fear
[12:50] Atiya Bruun looks at the strange man as he splutters, laughing softly she leans over and pats his back asking "is that not to your taste snake?"
[12:51] Snake: ((oh, did I confuse something?))
[12:51] : Atiya Bruun OOC : no you didnt hehe
[12:51] Atiya Bruun: its a good thing the girl heard your shout for bosk milk as she was leaving
[12:52] Snake after finished coughing and grimacing whipes his lips with his right arm and tries to smile at the girl and to be not inpolite says "Snake thanks you"
[12:52] Atiya Bruun: she brought some along too
[12:52] : Cailin Rain OOC : Mistress said ale,, then Master said bosk milk so she got both
[12:52] Atiya Bruun motions to the tray with her hand
[12:52] Jahlayah Jumanya laughs...
[12:52] Atiya Bruun chuckles
[12:52] Jahlayah Jumanya: Drink the ale, mighthy hunter...
[12:53] Jahlayah Jumanya observes the savage closely..
[12:53] Atiya Bruun glances at her friend, wiggling her eyebrows a bit as she looks pointedly at the strange savage boy
[12:53] Cailin Rain pulls a rep cloth from her pouch, and holds it for Master quietly
[12:54] Snake looks up in worry, afraid that he did the mistake to grab the wrong tankard. Though surprisingly his throat feels refreshed from the bitter liquid. He thankfully takes the rep cloth from the girls hands and starts to chew on one corner of it
[12:54] Snake grimaces again and tosses the rep cloth on the table, recognizing that it's nothing to eat
[12:54] Cailin Rain: giggles looking up at Mastrer with a funny expsression afraid to say anything
[12:55] Jahlayah Jumanya walks closer to the savage. She speaks soft: "you do not recognise fabric from food, boy?" as she leans over him
[12:55] Atiya Bruun throws back her head and laughs delightedly as he chews on the cloth, her eyes twinkling merrily at his funny display "oh my JJ he really is quite a delight dont you think so?"
[12:56] Jahlayah Jumanya looks up, her head still close to the boy's head.. "I think he could become a delight, dear friend.."
[12:56] Snake grabs some of the meat on the plate with one hand, bites into it and grabs the knife with his other hand. holding it firmly in his fist like a dagger he cuts the meat close to his lips
[12:57] Atiya Bruun chuckles and inclines her head, turning she looks at the girl "bring me a glass of chilled water celina and whatever JJ likes"
[12:57] Snake looks up as he senses the other woman so close to him. Chewing on the fine meat he answers: "Phnake no boy. Phnake phunter!", spitting some crumbs as talking
[12:57] Jahlayah Jumanya: some paga in a mug, so they think it is tea
[12:57] Cailin Rain: yes Mistress, she said softly as she turned to the Mistress on her right
[12:58] Atiya Bruun laughs and rolls her eyes muttering "never again am I touching that stuff, it gets me into trouble!"
[12:58] Cailin Rain: gives a softl laughs , saying "Yes Mistress , a very pretty mug she will find for you too "
[12:58] Jahlayah Jumanya's voice goes deeper as she speaks.. "and what kind of a hunter are you, in a city, alone and naked.. boy"
[12:58] Atiya Bruun bites her cheek as she watches her friend taunt the savage
[12:58] Cailin Rain lifts herself up from the floor gracefully and turns on her heel to head back tot he tavern
[12:59] Cailin Rain has left chat range.
[13:00] Snake takes a deep breath as he recognizes, that this is a good question. he chews some more and answers "Mainphlandwarriorph....." - swallows the piece of meat and starts again - "Mainslandswarriors come to camp of tribe and hit and punch Snake"
[13:00] Atiya Bruun: could you not defend yourself?
[13:00] Snake: Snake wake up here... with no loincloth and no weapon
[13:00] Atiya Bruun: surely one such as you is skilled in defence?
[13:01] Jahlayah Jumanya whispers.. "and you as a savage.. your ears were plugged.. did you not hear them come... hunter?"
[13:01] Snake shrugs "Snake was listening to songs of bugs in fur"
[13:01] Atiya Bruun shudders at the thought
[13:01] Atiya Bruun: how delightful
[13:02] Snake: ((they cheated a bit, using those crossing-doors and walls devices on the huds, which are forbidden there as well as here, which I saw in your rules. But I accepted it, even if it wasn't right valid))
[13:03] : Atiya Bruun OOC : ahh I see, well all for the sake of good rp huh?
[13:03] Snake: ((" listening to songs of bugs in fur" = sleeping))
[13:03] : Atiya Bruun OOC : cute :P
[13:03] Cailin Rain has entered chat range.
[13:03] Snake: ((yes, I prefer RP, even if it often brings me into disadvantage))
[13:04] : Atiya Bruun OOC : grins "me too"
[13:04] Cailin Rain slips the tray on the table softly , her small hands taking up the goblet of water , raising it over head she whispers softly " Mistress your water , may your thirst be quenched ."
[13:05] Atiya Bruun: You see snake..we now have a problem, just how far is your home from here and how will you have the funds to get back there, if you could?
[13:05] Snake cuts another piece of the meat in the Tuchuk way
[13:05] Jahlayah Jumanya leans even closer so her breath touches the boys skin.. "tell me.. hunter... sleep and being caught here.. how.. often did you feel the steal around our neck"
[13:05] Atiya Bruun reaches to take the water, smiling at the girl warmly as she does so "thank you celina, youre a wonderful girl, now you may serve JJ"
[13:06] Snake stops for a moment chewing and considers
[13:07] Cailin Rain slips the large much of paga off the tray and walks to th e Mistress on her right.. slipping to her knees she holds the mug up over head says in a gentle voice " Mistress , your ...tea... may you fell rejuvneated by this lovely brew today " her eyes sparkle with mischief
[13:07] Snake again spluttering crumbs of meat while talking "Hmmmm.... Phnake no know. How iph phity called? IPh near phity oph phabor?"
[13:07] Atiya Bruun sips her water with pleasure as she regards the savage thoughtfully
[13:08] Atiya Bruun blinks and murmers "it isnt polite to talk with your mouth ful boy..snake I mean"
[13:09] Jahlayah Jumanya takes the mug with tea from the girl giving her a fat wink. She takes a big sip from it.. "excelent tea.." and then lays her left empty hand on the shoulder of the boy.. she continues.. "I asked you a often steal around your neck....boy"
[13:09] Snake looks surprised at the woman in green and mumbles "Phorry"
[13:09] Cailin Rain slips apace back and watches with amusement
[13:12] Jahlayah Jumanya presses her hand a little tighter on the mans shoulder. Her nails are against his flesh. She does not press them in, but she is sure he knows they are there.. she observes..
[13:12] Snake swallows the piece of meat, wipes the oil from his lips with his arm again and answers "Snake not boy. And not like ring of metal around neck!"
[13:12] Atiya Bruun winks at the savage and murmers "quite alright, now I think Lady JJ is waiting for an answer"
[13:13] Jahlayah Jumanya: how often did you not like the steal around your neck...
[13:13] Cailin Rain watches the Hunter closely hearing His words she lowered her eyes in respect
[13:15] Snake raises his eyebrows in surprise and holds up the piece of meat "One"
[13:15] Jahlayah Jumanya hisses.. "how long.. how many moons..."
[13:16] Atiya Bruun listens with interest, finding the savage quite entertaining in his wild ways and innocent responses
[13:16] Jahlayah Jumanya takes an other sip from her 'tea' and grins..
[13:16] Snake shakes the meat "Only one time!" before he grabs another bite with his teeth, cutting it the same way with the knife. He chews in silence, not able to answer the question as long as he's chewing, proud to learn so quickly the customs of the mainslanders
[13:19] Snake with his mouth still full leans forward to grab the tankard with bosk-milk he finally eyed on the plate. He washes down the piece of meat and after swallowed it, he finally answers "Maybe one... two...." - counts his fingers of his left hand with the meat-armed right hand until he holds up four fingers "That many ahn!"
[13:19] Jahlayah Jumanya lets go of the boys shoulder. She drinks her mug empty and slams in on the table. Then she looks towards her friend.. "I need to pick up some stuff, I still left here. I have a customer waiting in Sais.. Atiya.. I will be back as soon as I can.. dear friend.."
[13:20] Cailin Rain: a girl wishes you well Mistress
[13:20] Atiya Bruun smiles up at her friend wistfully "oh what a shame, I do miss you here, come back soon dear, We need to catch up"
[13:20] Jahlayah Jumanya: Be well Atiya.. and serve well girl.. boys...
[13:20] Atiya Bruun: Safe paths JJ, dont stay away too long
[13:20] Jahlayah Jumanya has left chat range.
[13:21] Cailin Rain: may a girl be excused Mistress , she asked quietly
[13:21] Atiya Bruun: aye girl you may, serve with grace
[13:22] Atiya Bruun smiles warmly at her
[13:22] Cailin Rain: thank you Mistress
[13:22] Snake relaxes a bit as the other woman - that always called him 'boy' though he's a man - leaves. Before he grabs the bread on the plate ((supposing it is there)) he shouts "Safe paths"
[13:22] Cailin Rain: smiles back
[13:22] Cailin Rain: well wishes Master
[13:23] Cailin Rain has left chat range.
[13:23] Atiya Bruun regards the savage thoughtfully, resting her chin on her hand she murmers "now what on gor am I going to do with you?"
[13:23] Snake waves to the nice girl with the bread in his hand before he rips off a piece and stuffs it into his mouth
[13:23] Atiya Bruun sighs at his rather rude way of eating
[13:25] Atiya Bruun looks at brent as he lies quietly on his belly and snaps "you may tower now boy"
[13:25] Atiya Bruun: and if you ever dare embarrass me like that in front of my friends again, I will punish you myself!
[13:25] Snake swallows the delicious bread and shrugs "Where this city is?", he repeats his question. "Far away from Isle of Tidra?"
[13:26] Atiya Bruun thinks for an ihn "hmm, I am not familiar with the Isle you speak of snake, this is the City of Ostia"
[13:26] Brent Clavenham: yes Mistress
[13:26] Atiya Bruun: we are surrounded by water, the only way you are getting home is on a boat im afraid
[13:27] Snake frowns "Snake know Tabor. You know City of Tabor?"
[13:28] Snake considers a bit more if he remembers any of the other cities he been to. Suddenly remembers the boy with the hair on fire "You know City of Ushindi?"
[13:28] Atiya Bruun nods a lil "aye that rings a bell, although I am not too sure how far it is from here
[13:28] Atiya Bruun smiles and adds "I was rather..protected as a young girl, I didnt travel a great deal"
[13:30] Snake looks over his shoulder out the tavern. At the position of the sun he assumes "City of Ostia north of Tidra"
[13:30] Atiya Bruun smiles as he speaks and murmers softly "so you do have some hunting skills hmm? Well done, im impressed"
[13:32] Snake nods proudly "Snake hunting beasty sleen and soft tabuk"
[13:33] Atiya Bruun chuckles a lil and remarks "well, you will need your skills about you to get yourself home snake, I have grown rather fond of your strange ways, I dont wish any harm to come to you"
[13:35] Snake thinks of his lost weapons and the chances to survive a travel alone home to the south
[13:35] Atiya Bruun sighs and thinks for a lil about how she can help the poor savage
[13:35] Atiya Bruun glances at brent a thought crossing her mind
[13:36] Atiya Bruun: come with me snake, lets see if i can get you some help
[13:37] Snake's eyes saddens, he stares at the table. He had hoped, that the pearls and jewels in his hair would pay him a passage back to Tidra, but as the woman made him believe the jewels are worthless, he's getting hopeless. Desperately with little hope he follows the woman
[13:37] Atiya Bruun rises and touches his shoulder gently "the Warriors here are not all bad, im sure some will help you"
[13:38] Brent Clavenham has left chat range.

{on the way near the docks}

[13:38] Atiya Bruun: now listen
[13:38] Atiya Bruun: dont get all excited with yourself and let me do the talking
[13:38] Snake holds the cloth around his waist with one hand as he follows the woman
[13:39] Atiya Bruun smiles at him kindly
[13:40] Snake beams as he sees the bird, reminding him of his home, the jungle. But then saddens as he recognizes it is caged
[13:41] abdell Amat has entered chat range.
[13:41] Atiya Bruun: the Savage boy from earlier, do you think you could help him to get back to his tribe? He is really quite harmless and I fear he will soon end up in trouble f he remains stuck here in the confines of a city
[13:42] joesmoe Dirkle has entered chat range.
[13:42] DriftAngel Audion has entered chat range.
[13:42] Atiya Bruun: I have clothed him and fed him, now he just needs to get back home to his family
[13:42] Atiya Bruun: Tal Joe
[13:42] Atiya Bruun: tal kajira
[13:42] abdell Amat: and where may his home be ?
[13:43] DriftAngel Audion "Greetings my master.. Greetings Master Greetings mistress"
[13:43] Atiya Bruun glances at snake and murmers gently "tell the Primus, snake, He is a good man, one of Honor"
[13:43] joesmoe Dirkle: tal mine
[13:44] Snake not knowing what a Primmos is adresses the two males and points over his shoulder "South. Isle of Tidra?"
[13:44] Snake quizzingly "City of Tabor?"
[13:45] Cailin Rain has entered chat range.
[13:45] abdell Amat: "Never heard of it, before
[13:46] Cailin Rain: greetings Master's
[13:46] Snake sighs desperate
[13:46] Cailin Rain: greetings Mistress
[13:46] Cailin Rain: greetings angle , she would wrap her arms around you giving tight squeeze
[13:46] Snake suddenly looks from the ground up: "Chief of big canoe with wings know Tabor?"
[13:46] DriftAngel Audion smiles and hugs celina back
[13:47] Atiya Bruun places a soothing hand on his arm and murmers softly "dont worry snake we shall get you home somehow" turning she says to Abdell, "perhaps we can simply provide him with some weapon and coin to take a boat?"
[13:47] Atiya Bruun blinks "big canoe with wings?"
[13:48] Snake rolls his eyes to the sky considering how the mainslander call it, mumbling "sho... she... shee.. ship?"
[13:49] Snake nods with a broad smile confirming "Ship! Chief of ship! Know all mainsland!"
[13:49] Atiya Bruun chuckles as his explanation dawns on her
[13:49] Atiya Bruun: Aye, he may know
[13:50] Anastasia Westland has entered draw distance.
[13:50] abdell Amat nods " We can provide him a coin for the trip and I've seen earlier that he already owns a sword"
[13:51] Snake points over his shoulder to the docks "Sword on barrel"
[13:51] Atiya Bruun smiles "well, thats settled then, I forgot about the sword, I will see him to the docks and make sure he boards the ship safely"
[13:51] Atiya Bruun: Thank you Abdell
[13:51] Atiya Bruun: Be well
[13:51] Atiya Bruun smiles to the Free
[13:51] Atiya Bruun: serve with grace girl
[13:51] Atiya Bruun: come along snake, lets get you home
[13:51] Snake: Warrior say..." *imitates Abdells voice* "'you put away sword!' and Snake put away sword on barrel"
[13:51] Atiya Bruun chuckles
[13:52] Atiya Bruun: yes you did indeed
[13:52] abdell Amat: "aye, now get home safe"
[13:52] Snake nods
[13:52] Atiya Bruun smiles
[13:52] Atiya Bruun: come this way
[13:52] Snake: Snake thank you
[13:53] Snake: Snake send kanda for help!
[13:53] Snake waves to the warriors and follows the woman in green again like a puppy
[13:53] Atiya Bruun laughs "quickly before more trouble finds you!"
[13:53] Cailin Rain: well wishes Master
[13:54] Snake smiles at the nice girl who offered him the bitter liquid and whispers "safe pathes"
[13:54] Cailin Rain: smiles wrmly in return
[13:54] joesmoe Dirkle has left chat range.
[13:54] DriftAngel Audion has left chat range.
[13:54] abdell Amat has left chat range.
[13:54] Cailin Rain has left chat range.

{at the docks}

[13:55] Snake grabs the bit rusty sword from the barrel and attaches it to the cloth around his waist
[13:56] Atiya Bruun takes a lil package from her small bag and drops a generous amount of coin inside, rummaging around, she also adds a small tub of healing salve and some fruits and berries then hands it over to him "here, take this, it is all i have on me, but it will surely get you where you need to go"
[13:57] Atiya Bruun smiles warmly at him, her eyes soft and kind as she reaches out to gently pat his shoulder "you take care and stay safe, I hope now you know not all main landers are not bad people"
[13:58] Snake accepts gratefully the coins from the woman in green "Snake thank you for help. Will send you nice furs! Is long way witth canoe, so will take time"
[13:59] Atiya Bruun winks playfully "now if i see you here again, I will surely make you mine so be warned!" laughing her face shows she is only joking "furs would be lovely, i will be patiently waiting for them"
[14:01] Snake frowns a bit, not familiar with mainslander's humor, but then his face lightens to a smile "You visit Tidra one day? Guardians of Tidra welcome you. Is beautiful island!"
[14:02] Atiya Bruun smiles warmly and nods her head "aye I will try, if i have an escort, now you catch that boat and be safe"
[14:03] Snake enters the ship and asks the captain for a passage to Tabor, offering him all the coins from the nice lady as he doesn't know about the worth of coins
[14:03] Atiya Bruun smiles, crossing her arms as she watches him safely on the ship
[14:03] Atiya Bruun: Be well and safe paths!
[14:03] Snake waves to the woman "Snake telling the guardians. They escort you to Tidra!"
[14:03] Atiya Bruun waves
[14:03] Atiya Bruun grins
[14:04] Snake waves as the ship leaves the harbour and shouts over the noise of the waves and wind "SAFE PATHS!"

{passage to the safe harbour of Tabor}

[14:08] Snake climbs from the boat with the strange feeling the captain betrayed him in taking all the coins the nice woman had given to him
[14:08] Freki McGillivary has entered chat range.
[14:08] Giani has entered chat range.
[14:09] Freki McGillivary: Snake!
[14:09] Giani: brother
[14:09] Freki McGillivary: Where the hell you have been?
[14:09] Giani: Giani look for you
[14:09] Snake as he finally is on familiar ground rips off quickly the piece of clothes the woman wanted him to wear. He spins around as he hears familiar voices and jumps in joy!
[14:09] Giani: bring wolf to help
[14:10] Snake: brother! wolf!
[14:10] Freki McGillivary: growls
[14:10] Giani: scowls at the lack of brothers warpaint
[14:10] Freki McGillivary: lets go home to Tidra
[14:10] Giani: hugs brother close to him
[14:11] Freki McGillivary: bad Snake, getting capped
[14:11] Freki McGillivary hugs him tight and tears roll down
[14:11] Snake so thankful to see familiar faces and escaped the slavery hugs the guardian and his tribebrother
[14:12] Giani: my brother
[14:12] Snake: was terrible, brother!
[14:12] Giani: hides the tears of joy in his eyes
[14:12] Snake: warriors coming into camp

[14:12] Giani: snake safe now
[14:12] Freki McGillivary: I want to know all Snake
[14:13] Snake: binding and taking all weapons and loincloth!
[14:13] Freki McGillivary: let me know later in a scroll
[14:13] Freki McGillivary: lets all return to Tidra and relax
[14:13] Giani: let us go home brother
[14:13] Giani: you need to sleep so does guardian
[14:15] Freki McGillivary: Thank you Giani for your help
[14:15] Giani: Giani glad guardian helped
[14:15] Giani: giani not know what to do
[14:15] Snake happily follows his tribebrother and the guardian to the boat to sail home to their beloved island

{and they all returned to Tidra and lived happily ever after...}

After all it was a fun RP, especially thanks to LexyAnne Glenwalker, Atiya Bruun, Jahlayah Jumanya and Cailin Rain. Their SIM - Ostia, Rive-de-Bois - seems to show a bit of surplus in female players, who urgently need fighting/guardian slaves, which is much more down-to-earthGor than those aggressive, sword-swinging, badmouthed amazones we all meet so often in Gorean RP and which are just not BTB. It was refreshing that the women played like women of a city - proud and self-confident of course, but  a Gorean woman after all. Thank you very much!

Nice! Looks like what started out as bad RP (if it could even be called that!) ended up being some of the best you've had in a long while. Good reading, too!
