Festival Updates Penalty Brands

Festival Updates

SabreWolf~~~ wagers he already knows tonights topic,how We gonna discuss it?..laughs

Kayla~~~ What topic is that Home Brute?

Ceredigawn Durst~~~ *looking to Sabre.* I guess We can start when You're ready Sabre...

Lemuel~~~ ~listening for the first topic~

SabreWolf~~~ the festivale i'd have guess,,unless Yall wanna talk about penalty brands?,,grin

Kayla~~~ Well there is some house cleaning to be done but nothing much... I bet We can fit both in *S*

jasma{GS~FG}~~~ ~listening and doing the notes.. ~

Ceredigawn Durst~~~ From now on why don't We keep greetings and all that to whisper..Makes things much easier on Our first girl...*S*

SabreWolf~~~ We have the schedule finished?..are We gonna award poolside memberships?,,how We gonna award them?

jasma{GS~FG}~~~ ~smiling softly to Master Durst.. whispering her thanks to Him~

Ceredigawn Durst~~~ I wondered about that...If a member of the Council...How do We win prizes..if We can at All?

Kayla~~~ Darn Sabre...LOL Just jump right in *S*

SabreWolf~~~ of course if Yall gotta topic feel free to tell Me,,smile

sevda{SabreWolf}~~~ ~listens to her Master speaking~

Kayla~~~ schedule is almost finished but not quite... prizes??? well We haven't decided... *S* that about covers Our progress ~laughing lightly~

SabreWolf~~~ sorry Homie,,laughs,,there's another way?..laughs

Kayla~~~ Tal Rollo *S*...
Hope fully within the next few days We will have the schedule posted with all the contest rules *S*

Good question though about the pizes?... What do yall think about how to award them *S*

jasma{GS~FG}~~~ ~listening carefully to what's being said~

SabreWolf~~~ Council shouldn't be eligible,,seeings how we're gonna be doin the voting,,somehow though we need a good way to decide top slave and top Free winners,,something,,

Ceredigawn Durst~~~ I think it was either Marius, or Sabre..Maybe Rollo..*can't remember* but their idea was good.

Kayla~~~ what was the idea CD ~drawing a blank~

Ceredigawn Durst~~~ Well darn! *L* I thought that We judge like We always do...However...The Sparring should be C&P'd and sent to the Council as well for judging..and the if the Council member or Captain is in the contest then they do not vote on that Competion? *Not sure how that was going to work*

Rollo the Ax~~~ It appears that the main topic, for now at least, is the festival.... as for prizes ??? I would think that it would be necessary for ANY person involved with judging to be exempt from receiving one, that seems just common logic to Me.....

Ceredigawn Durst~~~ Hmm...look on the GS e-mail..it should be there somewhere..

SabreWolf~~~ that sounds good CD,,also dances and songs(Free and slave) gonna have to be judged,,,

Kayla~~~ I am not sure what Sg has in mind for it... He has not said...

Ceredigawn Durst~~~ Aye Rollo..just unsure on How the Sparrin would be judged since nothing but Council is signed up for it so far.

Kayla~~~ I agree if a Captain or Advisor participates in a competion they certianly shouldn't vote *S*

Ceredigawn Durst~~~ Of course...We are just gonna have a lot of reading to do...

Ceredigawn Durst~~~ The Warrior wouldn't be anywhere around for You to ask Him, would He Kayla?

Kayla~~~ Let the Ladies vote ~laughing as I watch CD's face~

Kayla~~~ He is here *S*

Ceredigawn Durst~~~ *Eyes look to Kayla* The Sparring? *shaking head* I don't think so...

Rollo the Ax~~~ LOL...LOL... CD, I don't know about anybody else, but I can say that for * ME *, I trust EACH and EVERY Council member to be fair and just in ANY vote or decision.... but there will always be those that question ANY decision.... So to it is always necessary to not only KNOW that what you do is right and just, but it must be able to be shown and proved to any such person....

Ceredigawn Durst~~~ *Nodding to Rollo* Aye Captain...I agree..

SabreWolf~~~ how about a contestant must participate in 2 events to qualify for the prizes,,

Shadowglade~~~ Someone called? *nodding at all as I enter*

Ceredigawn Durst~~~ *Ears perk up at Sabre's suggestion.* That would be an good idea Sabre...since We don't have a bunch of prizes...

Rollo the Ax~~~ Besides....LOL...LOL.. being a Captain or Advisor doesn't make any of us * perfect * or a better fighter, singer, wrestler, or what have you, than anybody else......LOL.. so I know that there are guys out there that can and would best Me...or others, in a fair competition.....LOL.. the BEST person wins...

jacia{GS}~~~ ~whispering~ may jaci bring up a question Master Rollo?

Asellus~~~ *listening* Will all the Council members be participating in the sparring events? *smiling*

SabreWolf~~~ grins @ his Brother,,speak fer Yerself,,I already know I'm the best fighter,,laughs,,,

Dak~~~ *chuckles* @ Sabre !

Ceredigawn Durst~~~ Very True Rollo...Another thought..last year all the songs, dances, etc. were posted on the boards...that way Free that might miss some of the songs, and all that can still read them.

sevda{SabreWolf}~~~ ~giggles at her Master~

SabreWolf~~~ I hope so Asellus,,,laugh

Shadowglade~~~ *chuckle* Well, then Captain Sabre, perhaps We should have a bragging contest as well eh? *W*

jacia{GS}~~~ ~totally agrees with the Master of her heart and soul and blows Him a kiss~

jacia{GS}~~~ LOL Master SG :)

Asellus~~~ If not, then they should be, Sabre. *Nods, smiling*

SabreWolf~~~ laughs,,aye SG,,I can do that well to,,laughs

Ceredigawn Durst~~~ You think so Sabre? *Chuckling*

jacia{GS}~~~ dunno Master Sabre jaci thinks Master Shadowglade and Master Marius are purty good at it too

jacia{GS}~~~ ;-)s @ Master Sg

Ceredigawn Durst~~~ And a drinking contest...*LOL* Thinking drunken Meat toss...

Shadowglade~~~ *chuckle* So I've noticed Captain....*chuckle* as can Many...now here's a question I have...if a Council member is in the competition Does that disclude them from all voting, or merely from voting on the competitions they were competing in...and who besides Durst and Myself plans on entering? I have only as yet had two entries, and Im not including Myself in that number...

Lemuel~~~ ~grinning at the idea of the kajirae trying to catch meat thrown by drunken Masters~

SabreWolf~~~ so,,if a person partcipates in atleast 2 events during the festivale,,they qualify for poolside membership prize?then We pick 2 winners out of that group by council vote?..fair?

Asellus~~~ *listening, drumming Her fingertips atop Her robed thighs in contemplation over how many on Gor are warriors and yet....do not spar?....*

Rollo the Ax~~~ LOL...LOL..Sabre, I never doubted YOUR ability.....LOL..LOL... But many years of life have taught Me that there is ALWAYS somebody faster, younger, quicker, or just plain better, out there....LOL...LOL... As for the prize issue ???? LOL..LOL.. I think the idea of making it necessary for ppl to be in more than one event to win any real prizes a fine idea....

jacia{GS}~~~ ~listens to what is being discussed~

jacia{GS}~~~ Master Rollo.. You can always say, "My Ax can kick Your Ax" *giggle*

SabreWolf~~~ SG,,We could let Advisors help vote during the festivale,,that way We could all spar and have fun,,I always liked the idea ofthe first 3 email replys decides the vote(no,,ya can't vote if your involved)

Lemuel~~~ ~looking to Shadowglade~
What day/time will the sparring contest happen?

Ceredigawn Durst~~~ I would guess only the events that We are competing in Sg..and I think We could vote on other Sparring events, just not Ours...Or should We leave the Sparring judges to the Captains?

Rollo the Ax~~~ jacia ??? do you want to ask an open question ?? or a private one to just Me ??? In either case, girl, feel free.... this is still an open forum....

Shadowglade~~~ Lemuel, I still have to coordinate with the other events on that, when I know you'll know...
*nodding to Sabre* so I take it You'll be in Sabre? *grinning* and perhaps You as well Rollo? I haven't seen You in the pit in FAR too long....*chuckle*

SabreWolf~~~ I'm gonna do My best to be here Fri,Sat from 6-9 pm Our time,,grin,more if possible

jacia{GS}~~~ ~hearing Master Rollo~ just a general question Master Rollo and jaci thanks You Master for allowing her question :)

Lemuel~~~ ~nodding to the Warrior Advisor~
Alright...I might give it a try if You need a few more targets, er - I mean participants. ~G~

Shadowglade~~~ That's good Captain...*chuckle* It is good My Lady reminds Me of things, The sparring contest has been scheduled to begin Saturday at 8PM/7 poolside time....

Rollo the Ax~~~ LOL...LOL... My friends.... In the end, this is still GS, and as such, the Council sets the rules..... so if * WE * say that a contest is to be run or judged this or that way..... in GS, that is how it will be done.... end of story, full stop, nuff said........LOL..

jacia{GS}~~~ jaci's question is actually more of a statement just to clarify a couple things she recieved in the mass # of emails she got 2day...
jaci has never been in a SOI room and doesn't know what GA is...or where it's found...also, she didn't post on the SI board yet cuz she was told she had to hang on till the Council approved it

jasma{GS~FG}~~~ ~looking up as she hears jacia's question.. ~

SabreWolf~~~ sev can help ya around soi jacia,,sile,,yall need to hit some bdsm boards as well,,get some new folks in here,,grin

Ceredigawn Durst~~~ Come on Lem...enter...I ain't skeered...*L*

jacia{GS}~~~ ~listens to her beloved Master's answer and nods to Him~ yes Master..the BDSM jaci can do definately she knows TONS of rooms *G*

jacia{GS}~~~ and thank You Master :)

Lemuel~~~ ~chuckles~ O.K. - I'll enter the sparring contest.
~looking to the Lady Advisor~
Kayla, You will be on hand to patch Us up, right? ~G~

Rollo the Ax~~~ LOL...LOL.. Shadowglade, I am in My own type of pit most of the time......LOL.. buried up to My ass with things that need done.....LOL.. so no promises about sparring ..... but stranger things have happened.... LOL...LOL..

sevda{SabreWolf}~~~ ~peeks up hearing her name~

Kayla~~~ I will be here ~smiles~

jasma{GS~FG}~~~ jaz has posted on the SI board earlier today, jacia so that is one that don't have to be done.. SD jaz can't do cause she can't post on the boards there, something with the way they have the board set up.. she as well don't know where the GA board is.. and they moved the CU board cause jaz got a blank page

jacia{GS}~~~ okay jaz thanks but why didn't jaci hear about getting permission to post on said boards???

Shadowglade~~~ *chuckle* So, what, if I may ask is the Council offering for a prize Captains?

Ceredigawn Durst~~~ Sg...There is a list on the GS e-mail...

jasma{GS~FG}~~~ this one wanted permission before posting on the GC board since they have many boards over there and wanted it on their main board and received permission from Jarl DaemonStorm.. as well as Master Kasba gave a girl permission to post on the SI board today when she was speaking to Him..

jacia{GS}~~~ ~just shakes her head~ thought you meant the GS council ... at least that is what jaci thought you said

jasma{GS~FG}~~~ aye, Mistress Kayla had said last week for us to wait before posting.. then Mistress had sent an email out telling us to post..

Rollo the Ax~~~ jacia..... I say post the notice of invitation anywhere and everywhere... it is only that...an invite.... nobody is being MADE to come here..... and if any other sites want to get pissed off about it, they can remove the notice.... just as I would do.....

jacia{GS}~~~ jaci will have to check cuz she must have missed that

Ceredigawn Durst~~~ I think We said to post where ever jaci..However some sites might not want Our posts on their boards.

jacia{GS}~~~ yes Master Rollo jaci understands

Kayla~~~ jacia... jasma... lets meet after the Forum and well iron all the problems out ok ~soft smiles~

jacia{GS}~~~ ~hears the beautiful Mistress~ aye Mistress

jacia{GS}~~~ is there a set post for us to be posying on other boards about the Festival or is it adlib so to speak?

SabreWolf~~~ I agree with Rollo,,post as much as possible,,let them remove it and come to us if they gotta problem with it,,

jasma{GS~FG}~~~ The World of Gor board, jaz did email and ask one of the board moderators for permission to post and He emailed a girl back letting her know that the board there was used more for gorean information itself and not roleplay things.. so a girl didn't post there.

Kayla~~~ We"ll cover everywhere We can think of *S*... any other questions needed answering from the Committee?

jasma{GS~FG}~~~ ~nibbling on lips gently.. softly~
aye Mistress Kayla..

Rollo the Ax~~~ Shadowglade..... several prizes have been donated ... I don't have a list right now, but as with all other things... I feel sure that whatever prizes there are will be matched with the proper type of contest.....

SabreWolf~~~ anyone got any other comments?suggestions?questions?ideas?roaches?..grin

Rollo the Ax~~~ LOL...LOL.. In any case everybody..... It seems that most if not all questions have been answered about the festival..... Is there any other business that needs taken care of ?????

Ceredigawn Durst~~~ Hmmm...That might be it? Of course when is it again...*LOL* Only joking...

SabreWolf~~~ Anyone have another topic?

Kayla~~~ got quiet...~looking around nervously~

Ceredigawn Durst~~~ *Eyes scanning the room, looking to see if Anyone has something?*


Penalty Brands

SabreWolf~~~ We can always discuss penalty brands,,

Kayla~~~ ok Sabre what about peniality brands? ~smiling at the Captain~

Kayla~~~ hmmmm spelling really off the mark

SabreWolf~~~ well,,for a start,when should they be imposed in a v/t setting?

Kayla~~~ tell what they are first Sabre *S*

Kayla~~~ ohh,,I thought that was where You had your male slave branded Kayla,,laughs,,"peniality brands" sounds painful,,laugh

Lemuel~~~ ~scratching head~ I would think only the slave's Master/Mistress could do it...

Kayla~~~ LOL.... and blushing again...

jasma{GS~FG}~~~ ~listening to the question.. softly~
even in a vt setting.. if a slave has been found guilty of lying, cheating, being a traitress, stealing.. wouldn't it still be up to the Master to brand her with penalty brands as He deems fit?

SabreWolf~~~ dualing?..smarting off at the mouth?..aye Lem,,but what do you think would be enough of a cause?

Lemuel~~~ ~thinking~ The only book I remember them being mentioned in is "Captive" when El-in-or is branded by Rask of Treve...

a girl found this after the forum and thought she'd post it with the notes.

I saw Rask, with a heavy glove, draw forth one of the four irons from the fire. It terminated in a tiny letter, not more than a quarter of an inch high. The letter was white hot. "This is a penalty brand," he said. "It marks you as a liar."
"Please, Master!" I wept.
"I no longer have patience with you," he said. "Be marked as what you are."
I screamed uncontrollably as he pressed in the iron, holding it firmly into my leg. Then, after some two to four Ihn, he removed it. I could not stop screaming with pain. I smelled the odor of burned flesh, my own. I began to whimper. I could not breathe. I gasped for breath. Still the men held me.
"This penalty brand," said Rask of Treve, lifting another iron from the brazier, again with a tiny letter at its glowing termination, "marks you also as what you are, as a thief."
"Please, no, Master!" I wept.
I could not move a muscle of my left leg. It might as well have been locked in a vise. It must wait for the iron.
I screamed again, uncontrollably. I had been branded as a thief.
"This third iron," said Rask of Treve, "is, too, a penalty iron. I mark with it not for myself, but for Ute."
Through raging tears I saw, white hot, the tiny letter.
"It marks you as a traitress," said Rask of Treve. He looked at me, with fury. "Be marked as a traitress," he said. Then he pressed the third iron into my flesh. As it entered my flesh, biting and searing, I saw Ute watching, her face betraying no emotion. I screamed, and wept, and screamed.
Captive of Gor, page 310

Kayla~~~ ohhh I would love to see a few smart mouth slaves with that type of brand.... and dualers... if the play that game I don't think they would wear the brand do You?

Rollo the Ax~~~ Sabre.... If we are to follow the ways of the books, it seems obvious that to inflict a penalty brand on a slave would require a certain amount of repetative actions on the part of said slave....

Lemuel~~~ ~scratching head again~ That would be up to the individual Master/Mistress, Sabre. A girl could be marked with a penalty brand just because it pleased her owner to do so...

SabreWolf~~~ sometimes a slave will learn their lesson,,smiles,,if they wanna live,,

SabreWolf~~~ wouldn't that lower their value?..I think Rollo is about right,,after trying everything else but death,,it's the only thing left,,

Dak~~~ they did seem to let them pile up a bit before punishing and the punishment was severe but made a good slave !

Dak~~~ the 3x3 cage could be useful as well

Rollo the Ax~~~ Also, such a punishment should be thought through by the one inflicting it on any slave...... there is also the question of such a slave * honoring * ( the only word I can think of ) such a punishment ???? If a slave that does these sort of actions were punished in this way, who is to say that they will * wear * them ?????

Lemuel~~~ ~nodding at the Senior Captain's words~
Aye, Rollo.

SabreWolf~~~ penalty_slave_brander something like this can be done here in GS,,grin

jasma{GS~FG}~~~ ~listening to her Owner.. nodding head.. thinking on His words~

Dak~~~ they should be required to include them in there entry , or entry denied !

jacia{GS}~~~ LOL Master :)

Kayla~~~ or just a small T for thief or L for liar...

Dak~~~ they could be added to their kolar as well !

sevda{SabreWolf}~~~ ~listens quietly~

Kayla~~~ Can We call the Forum to a close Captain so I can get the girls on the festival thing??? ~smiles~

Kayla~~~ listening to the silence

Kayla~~~ He does seem to be gone... Well lets close it out tonight and We will resume same time next week *S*

jacia{GS}~~~ Thank You Mistress for a good forum! :)

Lemuel~~~ ~nodding to the Lady advisor~

Dak~~~ sounds Good Advisor, till next week

Kayla~~~ Thank You all for coming and participating *S*
jasma jacia... follow Me please
