“Ko-ro-ba lay in the midst of green and rolling hills, some hundreds of feet above the level of the distant Tamber Gulf and that mysterious body of water beyond it, spoken of in Gorean simply as Thassa, the Sea…
I thought my city to be truly the most beautiful, its variegated lofty cylinders rising so gently, so joyfully, among the calm, green hills. An ancient poet, who incredibly enough to the Gorean mind had sung of the glories of many of the cities of Gor, had spoken of Ko-ro-ba as the Towers of the Morning, and it is sometimes spoken of by that name.”
(Outlaw of Gor, page 39)
The Kaverns welcomes everyone. The warmth of the fires is matched only by the heat of the kajirae, whose bellies and hearts burn with submission and devotion to a degree few can claim. Through these halls, you will hear laughter and happy voices of Free and slave, alike. Respect is demanded, however, and no harm or ill will shall be allowed, for those who smile and beckon you in to visit can also send you away quickly for bringing damage to the peace bred within this Homestone.
A large, well-kept kitchen is to the main hall’s far left. It is stocked with every desire of the Free. The Kitchen is rather extensive. Over on the closest wall on the right hand side is a work-surface which contains a sink, as well as cupboards above and below. Atop you will find the vessels for the Free, below you will find some dry-good ingredients, temwood crockery and other useful items for cooking. On the far side wall is a series of barrels, two of which are assigned for Fresh water from the lake. We need to top up the barrels on an almost daily basis with the buckets found to the side of it. On the left hand side, you will find a Clay-oven for roasting and baking, and next to that you will find a small rack of bottled drinks at room temperature. Beside this going left is the Kitchen Hearth. The Kitchen Hearth contains three spits: Closest, Middle, Farthest. You will often find warm Botas of Paga hanging on the middle spit for a quick serve to the Mistress Demoness – The Mistress is very fond of Her paga. You may also find some kettles attached for hot and warm water. At the top of the cupboards, there is also a small pitcher that we use to fill the Tharlarion Lamps – you will need a stool to reach that high which can be found here, under the central Table. The Central table has a chained down knife just below it in a drawer – but most of the time, the Free wish the slaves to use Cutting shells, which can be found in the opposing drawer. Up in the rafters of the kitchen, you may find some items hung up on hooks, such as fresh meats, over by the water barrels is the Kitchen Larder, you’ll find Cheeses and Dry goods for serving in there. In the opposing corner of the kitchen, a door that leads down a couple of stairs to the cold room, which holds chilled goods and beverages. There are also several barrels, some of which have food and one also has some Tharlarion Oil for the refilling of the lamps. Beautiful, sensual kajirae work and serve from here with their heart’s joy. The Grand Hall lies down the corridor and to the right of the kitchen. Here the Masters and Mistresses are catered to by the stunning kajirae that have come to be well known in the Kaverns
The kennels are located next to the kitchen, they can be found lined around the sides of the room with chains inside, with a pen in the corner over there. In the centre of the room, you’ll find the bondmaid’s hearth along with some slave-mats.
Looking down the Hall, you will notice the central fireplace in the middle of the room, an in-hall bonfire of sorts which will also need to be tended to. Centered in the golden dancing sands, stand four tall temwood poles that have felt the heated flesh of slaves as they writhe in eloquent sensuality for the pleasure of the Free. To the sides you will see two large tables that run down the hall, with a couple of benches here and there… Since we’ve so many Northern Free, many choose to sit on the Larl and Bosk furs, though Southern Free may still find a place to be. Demoness’ furs sit on the stone facing the South, around Her are the furs of the First Sword, Second Sword and the many Keepers of the Home.
Further still you see the Main Door to the Hall, That leads to the Courtyard, where you’ll find the Well, the Bosk Sheds, The Wood-cutter’s stump, the Washing Lines and tarn pens. To the right of the Door is a small set of stairs that leads to Guest Rooms and a set of chambers for the Owners and Keepers
Jarl Odins Forge… Please be aware, we may enter the forge, but not touch anything… Jarl OdinsRune in particular works hard in there and does not wish their projects disturbed.
There is Only Three spaces in the Forge that are of any interest to slaves – There is a rack in there that the Owners, First Sword and Second Sword will use to Brand or punish if needs be… There is a Storeroom in the back which is also accessible from the outside, usually filled with metals or items concerning the Free, and lastly there is a Catapult which rests outside…
We don’t talk about the Catapult.
