Post by: ruby~{Randolph}GSfg on September 15, 2018, 10:50:02 am
"The dancing girls of Port Kar are said to be the best of all Gor. They are sought eagerly in the many cities of the planet. They are slave to the core, viscous, treacherous, cunning, seductive, sensuous, dangerous, desirable, excruciatingly desirable."

Raiders of Gor, Pg. 100

Sept 27 - Game Night - (In the Inn: stones)
A guessing game in which one must guess how many "stones" the other holds in his hand. This game often goes beyond the simple game, but has been known to play a role in business transactions.

"Stones! Guess stones!" called a fellow. "Who will play stones?"
This is a guessing game, in which a certain number of a given number of "stones," usually from two to five, is held in the hand and the opponent is to guess the number. There are many variations of "Stones," but usually one receives one point for a correct guess. If one guesses successfully, one may guess again. If one does not guess successfully, one holds the "stones" and the opponent takes his turn. The game is usually set at a given number of points, usually fifty. Whereas the "stones" are often tiny pebbles, they may be any small object. Sometime beads are used, sometimes even gems. Intricately carved and painted game boxes carefully wrought "stones" are available for the affluent enthusiast. The game, as it is played on Gor, is not an idle pastime. Psychological subtleties, and strategies, are involved. Estates have sometimes changed hands as a result of "stones." Similarly, certain individuals are recognized as champions of the game. In certain cities, tournaments are held. Magicians of Gor, page 35.

Sept 28 - Dance Night - (dancers karinda and sweet pea)

Meat Catch
In this game, slave girls are knelt on the ground, hands tied behind their backs. Then, bits of meat are tossed to them, the girls must then catch the meat i their mouths. Again this is a contest in which their Masters, of course, earn the points, and much betting is made on the outcome.

"I saw a line of five slave girls, kneeling, abreast, their hands tied behind their backs. Bits of meat were thrown to them, one after the other, A catch scored two points for the master. A missed piece might be sought by any of the girls, scrambling about, on their bellies. She who managed to obtain it received one point for her master. The girls were encouraged from the sidelines, not only by their masters but by the crowd as well, some of whom placed bets on the outcome." Magicians of Gor, page 37.
