Now, slaves migrate in vast herds across Gor, and indeed I have often seen several thousands roaming majestically across a sim. We are only surprised,indeed, that they have not yet become a subject for National Geographic's wildlife documentaries.
But - they seem to follow the rainy season. And in other places, such as our own city, there was ne'er even a trail of slave spoor, or piles of slave dung to mark their passage, at the moment that they were wanted.
Which left us with a problem. Sure, FW can serve, but it was felt a bit inappropriate. Besides, what is a wildlife reserve without wildlife? A sim without slaves seems a bit - well, un-natural.
And here, all the time, was the answer. All we had to do was to switch to an alt, slap a collar and a camisk on her, and the problem would have been solved.
Mind, the visiting HRH might then have wondered why there were no freewoman, but sheesh...
Cortez wrote:I'll raise my hand and say I do it. I just gave Jaxon, Cortez's companion, a slave. He missed having one, and I missed writing a slave and since we spend so much of our time writing together, we figured why not. It eliminates the OOC drama and the obligation of having multiple RP partners, and it lets us write them in a manner that we want to-- with all our NPCs, etc. And when we are in private, I write them both at the same time and get to have an Rp that has no OOC influence. So maybe, in a way, it's my response to falling back on this line of thinking you are suggesting.

Not every woman follows this rule...so please...no bashing on this point, but the main attraction for women is the romantic aspect of a dominant man having power over a woman in some primal way.
What I've seen in SL gor is that women have played the role of a slave, been ignored in their experiences, and chose to take a role as a free woman. Taking the role of a free woman gives that female a much better stance, IC, of who they allow to dominate them and who they chose to resist. This aspect is heightened in GE where women have actually taken up bows to ensure they have more control over their RP in many ways. At least that's how I've seen it...
My theory, what I've observed, is that if free women who can separate OOC and IC and separate their characters (free woman and a slave...seperate avis) do better at playing their FW because "Oh no...I don't want to be boxed into nothing but a slave role" on both avis, so they act more proper on their FW character because they can get the sexual or more erotic RP on a slave and WANT to keep it contained to that character rather than having a yo-yo FW (I'm collared! I'm free! I'm collared! I'm free!).
I wanted to ask the community if they've seen anything similar, or have most sims taken on the policy of not allowing alts period.
