So yeah...Gor draws me back. But then I remember the -time- and I never log in.
This is the reason why I dress up my character and then never hit a gorean sim. I just cannot imagine putting in the time that it used to require for those epic stories. Well stated.

Infact, the US presidential race is a perfect parallel to what you'll encounter in this tiny microcosm of virtual Gor.
Donald Trump - The de facto personality of BTB Gorean men. Hard talking, abusive, ignorant, hasn't done a hard day's labour(or roleplayed captivity) in his life, but his attitude is hugely popular with the masses. BTB women want a 'strong man' like this at her side, and men are freely surrendering their intelligence to become one.
Ted Cruz - Smart, but too sleazy to trust. The Trumps are preferable to these guys because you rarely see them in actual roleplay. But they manage to bag themselves council seats in the cities they join through underhanded, OOC manoeuvring. Keep an eye on these guys to know when a sim's about to fall as they'll be the first to bail.
Marco Rubio - The always smiling, nice guys of BTB Gor. Get the fuck out.
No one knows why they entered the game, these are the guys who happily sit in cafes drinking tea with chatty Free Women. No one knows why they entered the game.
Bernie Sanders - The only man in the game who's read the Gorean Books, in his teens. And he read them again through the IRC days, and again when he came to SL Gor. With his old school principles, Bernie could probably make Gor work again, but when he logs in to see the mess BTB Gor has become, he logs back out to spend his mortality on worthier pursuits.
Hilary Clinton - The epitome of a BTB Free woman of Gor. Women hate her. Women want to be her. No one will ever respect Hilary for sticking by her FC when he cheated on her with a slutty slavegirl(We are talking BTB here). Love her or hate her, Hilary has read the books too, she knows just the quotes to use to make BTB Gor more comfortable for women. With the Rubios sharing tea at her table and the gruff Trumps on gate duty, the Hilarys are putting in the effort which men don't, they're taking positions which men haven't earned. So BTB Gor has been moulded into their image of what Gor should be.
So find those few people who still have a clue, roleplay your Gorean tales with them and you'll do fine.
This post right here was worth me coming back to have a look at the forums. Love it. But then again you have always had a way with words.
