From the Scribes Desk

The city is moving rapidly now, we’ve had the Kassar wagon people move in, they include Andre (Andre Radikal) his mate Lady Seren (Sserendipity Parkes), their girl libbi (Liberty Luckstone and Lady Rosa (Trixie Llewellyn) and her mate.  It’s wonderful to have the renowned storyteller Andre adding his family and friends to our city.

We also have a rather large family staying at the Inn, I came upon them in the library and they were so taken with the city they decided to stay for a while.   Lady Jax (Jadxia Lexenstar) and her companion Lucius Toxx joined us at the book group evening with Lady Suzan (Suzansaxondale), after which Lady Jax and Lucius stayed a while chatting about the quiz night I was planning, with Lucius showing off his extensive knowledge of all things Gorean.

The family are mostly physicians, with one companion being a scribe, Lucius was much taken with the infirmary.

We’ve had a couple of book group meetings and meetings at the Inn where new people have shown up and it’s been interesting and enjoyable chatting with them.  One such person was a warrior from Vigo, Alex (Jesusfantasy ) a very pleasant and well spoken man who was served by my girl tahara who pleased both of us greatly.   He extended a welcome to his own city which I will be taking up shortly.

At the next book group we had an engaging discussion with Lady Suzan Saxondale and Lady Rosa of the wagon camp, we’re getting through the chapters and finding new and interesting things to talk about each week so do come along, it’s a wonderful way to engage and learn from the actual source.  Raoul joined in at the next Evening at the Inn as we had our first quiz night, Lady Meyru Hilra joined us and we had a lot of fun and I’m looking forward to this weeks quiz.

One of your visitors to our Inn evening returned with his girl and is speaking about joining us as a slaver, he will be very much welcomed as I’ve met his girls and they are highly trained and pleasing.  They will be an asset to our city.

In other news, the changes to the library are going well, new scroll cases are being added and information checked and moved around.  I’ve visited a village in the south to discuss an alliance, that is still ongoing, and lastly my girl tahara has been writing out a basic first lesson for new kajirae which is to be passed to Raoul and sari for their feedback, if positive, then perhaps classes for kajirae may be held once again.

Thank you for reading and don’t forget to come along to one of our various talks and discussions or just to visit .. you’re all very welcome

I wish you well

Sari Enters The Tarnsport Tandem Dance Exhibition

Our own sari entered the  TARNSPORT TANDEM DANCE EXHIBITION   with mily  sandalwood.

The Setting

The Setting

It was one of the best, if not THE best dances of the evening .. but then we’re biased <grins?

Here we are proudly watching sari and mily dance!

Watching sari dance

Here is their dance:

mily is well known for her support of dance faction, as espoused by her late Master, Samos Madrigal. She is well known in the dance community and her Master, Bartok, is pleased to return her to the sands to honor him, the city of Ko-Ro-Ba, and the memory of Samos.”

sari and mily dance

Gunner von Phoenix: mily and sari the sands for now are yours

Sari: slow poke
Sari shakes her head at the girl

Mily Sandalwood: smiles
ஓწLαԃყ ɱყʂƚწஓ: claps for both**

ﻜησѡ giggles, clapping for Mily and Sari as they enter the sands

Sari: “In every female there is a dancer.” Mercenaries of Gor, p.60
Mily Sandalwood: but practice (and a helping hand) is still needed..

Mily Sandalwood glances to sari and makes a kinda half smile… ” this is hard it wont come together as i want”

Sari furrows her brow a moment, watching the girl “show me again”

sari

Mily Sandalwood extends a painted toe and taps it against the sand with a “tap tap tap ” before shifting backward arching body up

Sari nods, watching the simple movement “you’re off balance, draw your balance foot back and turn the toes out just a bit, like this..”

Mily Sandalwood attempts with slightly hesitant movements to mirror the shifts.. tapping foot dragging it over the sand before with a elegant toss of blonde hair the subtle body is arched then just as soon arms reach down and she giggles shaking her head

sari and mily

Sari frowns, stomping her foot in the sands “with me…again!”

Sari places one foot firmly in the sands, rocking forward, her heel turning inward, she extends a leg, tapping repeatedly in the sands before tossing her head, arching back, the movement accentuating the curves of her body

Mily Sandalwood shakes head bending forward just a little watching intensely eyes wide… then says ” but.. but ”
Sari spins out of the pose, turning to look at the girl

sari

Sari cocks her head to the side, a smile moving from her lips to her eyes – again, her foot plants into the sands, a leg elegantly extended, her arch deeper, she taps – one…two…three…

Mily Sandalwood ‘s face clears with recognition and the dance move emerges as she with a triumphant smile copies the steps

Sari laughs, watching the girl complete the turn perfectly…

Mily Sandalwood stops dancing and looks to sari with a wide grin showing all over her face she whispers almost breathless.. yess yesss

Sari tips her head, eyes twinkling, linking gazes with the other dancer…her toe begins to tap and the dance begins again…

Mily Sandalwood ‘s delightful giggles linger in the air as the kajira hurls herself with abandon into the dance arms reaching out almost as if embracing the other girl before she dips to with a hurry move away… she calls over her shoulder ” look look” before shifting to a different move..

Sari scampers across the sands, mimicking the dips and swirls of the other slave, adding a toss of her head, a wink of her eye, an extra thrust of her hip, her body again extended in that deep backward arch.

sari

Sari claps her hands..a exhuberant laugh escaping into the room – she glances to her friend, biting her lip..then spins, sending the sands beneath her feet scattering through the air…a rapid series of well placed, intricate steps..

Mily Sandalwood moves feet in light easiness giggling almost breathlessly as her feet taps over the sands combining the two moves in a marinade with the other silks and feet of sari’s . Grey eyes shines in delight as if in that moment in time all that exists is the dance and the feel of the sand underneath the bare belled feet..

Sari matches mily’s step, each toss of the head, the dancers now in total unison – moving, dancing, stretching together, the joy of the expressive movement evident in the glow of their skin and the fluidity of their dance.

sari and mily

Mily Sandalwood beaming with joy the silks flows between the dancers legs as feet practices the moves with minute precision. Every arch and bend being done with the ultra perfection only a well trained dancer would be capable off every now and then a low laughter rings through the air as if there was nothing more enjoyable than practising the steps over and over.

sari and mily

Sari tosses her head, again sending the tangle of wild sunlit strands cascading down her back – gyrating faster and faster, spinning her love of dance …

Mily Sandalwood giggles as her body spins round in harmony with sari’s moves.
Kysersozee Mynx shouts: SARRRIIIIII MILLLLLLYYYYYYYYYYYYY WHERE IS MY BREAKFASTTTT????????????

Sari squeals and runs

Mirit applauds! “You go, girls! Well done!”
Mily Sandalwood: OHHH Masterrrrrrr

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Well done to both girls .. delightful and fun to watch <smiles>

The week in Hellenos

From the Scribes Desk

It’s been a quiet week in the city, but we did have one new guest on Wednesday for our Evening at the Inn at 1PM SLT.  A warrior, Loki (aave),  from the village of Nyuki who arrived with his girl, tia (BaileySeliger) who served us well.  He gave me a map to get to his village to meet up with their elders and merchants, and after he had taken refreshment he and his girl departed promising to come back bearing gifts.

Another welcome guest was Mirit (elara.jupiter), a long time friend of Hellenos.  We talked about her Masters library, The Great Library of Gor,  which she told me had moved, she gave me the new map so I can go and visit.  It’s wonderful place and Tycho (Tycho Ccelestalis) long term project which you can see has been built with a love of the scrolls as you would expect from such an experienced scribe.  Mirit served very well before departing.  They are looking for a slave who will be trained in the basics of slavery and of helping to take care of visitors at the library, show them round and find materials and so on, so if you know of anyone, or you are that person, please get in touch with either mirit or her Master Tycho.

On Thursday we had the FW Teas held at 1PM SLT, just as I was getting ready for it, Loki, the warrior from Nyuki arrived, with a score of slaves weighed down with gifts for the city.

The girls were tia ( BaileySeliger Resident), shaia (Souldazzle),  jini (candra63636), nura  (xxsativaxx) and sevda  (sheeeaa), they all carried heavy sacks or crates with the gifts from their village.  We had Sa Tarna, paga, and suls.  I very gratefully received these wonderful gifts on behalf of our city and with thanks from us all and a promise to travel to his city to see their elders or merchants maybe to start trade or alliance talks.

Lady Freyja arrived for the FW Tea just as they were all leaving, we had a long and enjoyable chat but sadly no other FW came .. better luck next week.

The very next day myself and Lady Freyja made the trip to Nyuki, which is a lovely tropical village with many unusual plants and animals.  We met up with Loki again and one of the other warriors, Prestige De Bembe (Prestigedebembe, ) and a lot of the slaves I’d seen the day before  .. we had a lovely tea there and were given names to contact for furtherance of our trade and alliance talks.

We also had a visit from Lady Rosa, Rosalinda (Trixie Llewellyn) of the Kaiila Wagon People .. she looked around the city and then stopped for a chat at the library.

I also claimed myself a wonderful kajira, I was on my way to the library and found a girl sitting amongst the flowers humming to herself, I asked her about herself and it turns out she was looking to be claimed, so without further ado I claimed her for myself.  Her name is tahara ((ninamaitai) and has been a gem to me, she’s organised, efficient, works hard, is well read and educated, a kajira bred for dancing and has the most wonderful way with words.

So it doesn’t seem to have been so quiet after all  <grins>

I wish you well

Hellenos OOC Dance

The theme was King Arthur’s Round Table, one of khalida’s favourites.

Raoul and khalida spent a week working on the table and the chairs when this dance was originally held, using measurements and what she knew of the Knights of the Round Table.  Each of the shields on each chair represents a known Knight of the Round Table.  The words on the table say ‘When we serve each other, we are free’.

Round Table from Above

The Knights of the Round Table were characters in the legends about King Arthur. They were the best knights in King Arthur’s kingdom, and lived in King Arthur’s castle, Camelot. They were called the Knights of the Round Table because of a special table in Camelot, that was round instead of rectangular. This meant that everyone who sat around it was seen as equal.

Round Table

This was the first OOC for some time and was very well attended with friends new and old.  Much banter, chat and laughs were heard ringing around the cavernous room, there was dancing and music with Raoul as DJ.

Round Table in the Vast Room

As you can see the build was excellent and gave the impression of space, dark corridors and a slight mystique and as you can see from this next photo the table was pretty near the real thing.

Round Table Real

Thank you everyone for coming and supporting Hellenos!

Update from the Scribes Desk

 Our week in Hellenos

We’ve had a busy and enjoyable week here at Hellenos with various groups and discussions.

Monday 22nd July at 4PM SLT was the second of our Campfire Discussions hosted by RaoulAngel Writer, the topic was on The Luther Scrolls. There was a good turn out and a good in depth discussion.

We also held the Book Group that day at 2PM SLT, hosted by Lady Laraa Short, Raoul and sari were welcome guests to our discusson of rational people and much else from chapters 4 to 6 of Tarnsman of Gor.

The Evening at the Inn on Wednesday 24th beginning at 1PM SLT was very well attended and we have some really interesting chats. Lady Hazel (hazelnutbrown) was telling us about her caste of Magicians and it was mooted that she might be interested in moving to Hellenos.

Lady Blithe Braveheart and her FC Rev (Revolution Mistwalker) arrived and had a talk about the different regions of Gor and the cultures with Lady K (Kirax Pfalz) from Sand Sleen. It was nice to see a new face at the table.

On Thursday we had our usual FW Tea at the Pavilion, 25th July at 1PM SLT, the subject was ‘Are you Gorean?. Two Ladies showed up, another new Lady, Lady Meyru Hilra and also Andre’s mate from the wagon camp, Lady Seren (Serendipity Parkes). We had a good interesting talk but it was suggested that we might try the topic as a campfire where men would be included and also hope to include real life Goreans as we were all RP Goreans.

The transcripts for all of the discussions can be found in the library of Hellenos.

Tonight, Friday 26 July we have our First OOC dance celebrating khalida’s life. So please put that date and time in your calender, this promises to be a good fun evening.

So all in all a good week .. and I now look forward to the next one.
