I think it looks pretty legit. I gambled $20 on it.

It's real and it's going to happen, or at least trying to get off the ground ... I got this in email this morning:



Richard Curtis
11:32 AM (3 hours ago)
to me

Jon - you may tell all who are interested that the RPG is authorized by virtue of a signed agreement between John Norman and Mr. Desborough's company, negotiated and approved by John's agency Richard Curtis Associates, Inc. and Richard Curtis personally.

Feel free to make this statement public


Now that there is no doubt and the funds will most likely be raised ... many people have waited long for this ... it remains to be seen how well it will be implemented ...

I wish you well ...

Amazin. The old fella seems to have had a rethink about roleplay.

I'll probably never use it because my RL friends are a bit too straight-laced for kinky sci-fi roleplay, but I'll contribute anyway. Hopefully the roleplay manuals will come with some nice dirty pics.

You'd think such an ambitious project would get a more substantial announcement than a couple sentences on the Gorums. I don't know, maybe a tweet from the author, press releases on the blogs surrounding the topic, a mention on the chronicles website, something that doesn't make this look so sketchy?

John Norman doesn't look like someone that would tweet a lot. :P

Also, the thing is that I do not really see the point of a table-top RPG made based on Gor.

I mean, what would the rules cover that would not be covered by any 'general' RPG system with 'medieval/classical' non-modern weapons without magic or elves/vampires/orcs etc? The fighting would be pretty much identical to any RPG system covering classical/medieval weapons, without the full plate and chainmail etc. Sure, some specific rules might be made for fighting on a Tharlarion or a Tarn, and it might need some specific gorean 'monsters' (sleen, larls, tarsks, etc.) and maybe specific specs for a peasant's bow, etc. but other than that, not much difference from any system that allows people to RP 'humans'. You might have different 'races' if one wanted to include PK's, Kurii, Giant Spiders, etc. with special 'stats'. But most of the likely 'player characters' would be pretty much human.

So, apart from the 'lore' (for which the books are the obvious source, as they are for us), what else that is specifically gorean would be added to this system? A stat for 'submissiveness'? A stat for honor? Class stats for being a member of the scarlet caste? Tavern-serving skill? Slave dance feats? Roll a D20, and on 18-20 you earn a loving but strict Master?

I don't really see it. :|

Except the (near)naked slavegirl pictures part.

Heart is broken, for I am a fat chick.

Pretty sure you couldn't pay me to run around in a camisk!
This isn't fucking Survivor. We aren't a tribe.

If I won't put up with an in-character owner trying to control my OOC life, what makes you think I'll put up with you trying to do that?
