I visited and since I'm one of those weird people who take time to read the rules, Tor is definitely not a place for me...

There are annoying differences regarding the OOC treatment following you play a free or a slave. I noticed, too, a few details which make me think that the owners are not so well familiarized with the Taharian environment as described in Tribesmen of Gor.

"ALL NEW SLAVES, PLEASE BE AWARE: THERE IS A 30 DAY PROBATION PERIOD IN THE CITY OF TOR. If within the 30 days you find Tor is not what you wish please see the Vizier to have your collar removed and have yourself removed from the City Roles. "

Let's take a look at the applications

Free person character's application form:

► Show Spoiler

Now, application for slave characters:

► Show Spoiler

Clearly, if you play a slave in Tor, your backstory, RP experience, commitment etc, don't interest much the sim admins... It's so more important to know if you are submissive enough to serve the free....! (anyway, if you're not a sub, why do you role-play a slave, hmmm...?)

And my favorite: Do you know the slave paces, hmmm? 34 books read, I still don't know the slave paces. Must be because they are movements and expressions a slave perform under the instructions of a man and not sentences to know by heart...? How hard is it, to stop confusing slave paces and litanies, in 2017...?

I love too, when you're taught your role in slave rules. Because of course, when you play a slave, you always need that kind of reminder (which I didn't find in the application form for free persons characters).

The requirement to visit the vizier to get your avatar's collar removed is interesting... I suppose that slave players will be deemed rude, if they just detach their collar from their avi instead of asking the vizier to do it?

And I loved this, in the visitor rules:
"BARBARIANS FROM EARTH AND IN EARTH CLOSING ARE NOT ALLOWED INSIDE THE CITY. If you want to visit, take one of the free outfits given at the landing area and use it. Search for the outfit giver at the landing area and there you have clothes and rules to read. We do not accept barbarians “observers” in the city. They have to be dressed as Goreans. The only allowance here is that they do not have to RP so they are not allowed to interrupt RP unless spoken to."

"Barbarians observers" haha!

The dress code is not bad, too.. So, in the slave rules, slave players must not dress their avatar with a camisk. Which makes sense, as in the books, in the Tahari, in public, slave girls wear a haik, (the heat, the sun..). Only the bells they wear identify them as slaves. But in the general rules, FW can bare their face, the veil is not a mandatory.. Seriously, in the Tahari...? See, I'm all in favor for a dress code OOCly enforced, but the same BTB standards should be applied for all roles, no?

And there, we have a nice BTB scene, with two unveiled FW (one is obviously of the green caste), who sit in a public space (cafe, bakery...?) and beside them (serving? Not sure, her tag said she was the Sultan's pleasure slave), a topless, pierced breasts slave girl, kneeling in nadu.... (Sultan? Not a big deal, but why not pasha, the title used in Tribesmen...?)

Else, a herlit, a butterfly and 2 geckos support the traffic...

The applications do read like roleplaying-lifestylers tbh
