#RPG -Sinter Klaas, Legendary Torvaldslander

GAu161545680884Far in the frozen north of the Counter-Earth, bondmaids share whispered stories of Sinter Klass, the legendary Jarl of the frozen wastes. It is said he thunders out of snow on his war-sledge, drawn by eight enormous northern tabuk, their spiral horns rusty with the crusted blood of his enemies.

He seeks out slaves who have been dutiful and good to their Masters and rewards them with wood and amber beads. Slaves who have been neglected he rewards with a romp in the furs and a dash of slave perfume. Slaves who have been spiteful and bad may be spanked and whipped or carried off in his sack to learn their place in his hall.

Masters who are cruel for no reason may face his wrath, stealing from them, enslaving them or challenging them to a duel to the death – though even when he loses he seems to reappear the next year.

Klaas’ booming laugh and the giggling of his three bondmaids, Hi, Ha and He, along with the jangling of the bells of his war-sled heralds his arrival. It is traditional to leave a spoonful of slave gruel or a much-prized candy out for him and his girls.

#RPG – Tales of Gor: The Game of Worlds RELEASED!

216919A new adventure/supplement for Tales of Gor is now out. You can buy it HERE on PDF, or HERE on Lulu (search online for coupons, they often have discounted or free shipping codes!).

A ‘side quest’ from the line of Tales of Gor adventures, The Game of Worlds is an excellent way to bring Earth-based characters to Gor and set them off on their adventures as an introduction. It starts on Earth and takes them to Gor, in the wake of being caught up in the intrigues on their own world, from there they can return – or stay – to live a life of adventure on a more colourful planet.

This booklet also contains non-canonical speculation, rules and ideas for Earth-based campaigns and characters, as well as the interplanetary cold war as it plays out on that world.

#RPG – A Review for ‘World of Gor’

210277From John. A. over on RPGNOW.

The Gor section at RPGNOW can be found HERE.

The World of Gor: Gorean Roleplaying World Encyclopedia is a fantastic addition to the Tales of Gor rpg. First the technical points. The pdf’s organization was well done. It contains an introduction section on Gor, followed by the author’s experience with Gor, a summation of all 34 Gorean series books, and then a chapter by chapter, A to Z encyclopedia. I’m a sucker for a well laid out book.

The content itself is phenomenal. The book is worth it even if you don’t play the rpg but just enjoy the book series. I know from now on, that when I read Norman’s books, I’ll have this handy so I can look things up quickly and easily. As a gaming tool, it’ll make explaining aspects of Gor to the group a breeze. For example, castes can be a rather daunting task to explain. With the encyclopedia, I have an entry for each caste, that describes their profession, dress, and general lot in life. Great detail has been given to each entry within.

The encyclopedia doesn’t just tackle the “low hanging fruit” either by just giving certain topics like slavery one entry. But instead, we get the whole picture. I now can confidently understand and explain the intricate and complicated concepts of Gorean slavery to my group. Or Kaissa, a game like chess on Gor, could have had a simple entry but instead we essentially get the game explained to us. With entries such as this, my Gor rpg can come alive for my players because it gives me the tools to do so.

gor_slavegirl_alphaNormally, I’d have to go to various websites to prepare background information or go from book to book of Norman’s work to prepare for a game like Gor. Now, it is all at my fingertips. If you are a fan of Gor, I recommend this book, just like I did the actual rpg. They are wonderful reading enhancements to the world. And if you are a Gor rpg player, then to me, this is a must! Also, the price is very, very fair for the amount of time and work that must have went into creating this encyclopedia!

#RPG – The Silver Cult RELEASED!

211703The Silver Cult thrusts the characters into a conspiracy that threatens to overturn the natural order of Gor and the city of Tharna. Will they side with the revolutionaries who seek to usurp the power of that city, or help crush the rebellion?

This supplement also contains rules for slave-breaking and torture, and for encouraging better roleplay through mechanics.

#RPG – Gor Guide & World Book Review

2c386c38da9af849a2799276f1da3236‘Emma of Gor’ has written a useful guide for those wanting to take a very purist approach to making and playing their characters. You can find that link here:

Gorean Character Creation

More so than most games, ‘Tales of Gor’ cries out for players to create characters that seem a natural fit to the thriving and detailed world they live in. This is not really the campaign setting for you to foist a generic D&D adventurer on. To get the most out of the Gor setting you’d do well to consider the kind of people that live on the Counter Earth. While you don’t have to play ‘typical Goreans’ – the game after all makes the point many times that Gor is yours to interpret as you will – what follows is a guide to character creation if you want to truly capture the flavour of the kind of people who live, fight and lust throughout the Gorean cycle.

World of Gor, meanwhile, has been reviewed, link below.

In strict alphabetical order, the entries cover everything from prominent individuals to flora and fauna, popular beliefs and customs, and matters of everyday life. They are illustrated by relevant quotations from the books as well as splendid pen-and-ink drawings that capture the exotic feel of the world well. Even where slaves are involved, they remain tastefully done… and are particularly fascinating when they depict the exotic animals of Gor.
