We are role-players on this forum and most of us know Gor very well, have role-played in this environment for years, have read the books (personally, I read all 34 books of this series) and some even ran Gorean RP sims. We know Gor enough to realize that you are actually proposing a free adaptation of Norman's books. I'm sure that could be fun as well but I don't see what we could learn about Gor via this game you introduced. You added elements which don't belong to the universe imagined by Norman (we could of course, point out that this author's imagination, sucks in many ways...)
As Leah told you on another thread, we don't identify ourselves as Gorean because we are role players. When I play an elf in a Fantasy themed role-play environment, I don't identify myself as an elf. Same when I play my favorite char, who is a faun. I won't introduce myself in saying "I'm a faun"). Why would it be different when I play one of my Gorean characters, FW or kajira? They are only fictive characters. When my RP scene ended, I'm only who I am in RL.
