I help run a teaching environment that welcomes those new to Gor. This website is a staple for the resources I use when helping a new person find their way. I stress it is not a replacement for the reading of the books, but since none of us can remember everything - this is my personal 'go to' website for finding information that I cannot quite remember. Thank you so much for this valuable resource.

Greetings DMMWolf,
While Calculus is certainly not an animal in the same way as a tarn or sleen, according to Wikipedia, on the subject of 'Calculus (dental)', "The organic component of calculus is approximately 85% cellular and 15% extracellular matrix.[5] Cell density within dental plaque and calculus is very high, consisting of an estimated 200,000,000 cells per milligram.[6][7] The cells within calculus are primarily bacterial, but also include at least one species of archaea (Methanobrevibacter oralis) and several species of yeast (e.g., Candida albicans). The organic extracellular matrix in calculus consists primarily of proteins and lipids (fatty acids, triglycerides, glycolipids, and phospholipids),[5] as well as extracellular DNA.[6][8] Trace amounts of host, dietary, and environmental microdebris are also found within calculus, including salivary proteins,[9] plant DNA,[10] milk proteins,[11] starch granules,[12] textile fibers,[13] and smoke particles.[14]"
In my effort to be thorough I included the passage from Marauders of Gor, Page 114
by Fogaban on 05/10/2017 at 05:38 am

just to let you know, Calculus is not an animal in the passage you quoted. Its a dental plaque found within the Hunjer Whale. Just thought you should know.

I love your site. I've been using it for a long, long, time. It's such a great learning tool. Thank you.
by Pryce Portland on 04/24/2017 at 11:03 am

I appreciate your insight for the quote from Priest-Kings of Gor Page 64.
I have added more context to the quote to better clarify the ointment mentioned as being "an ointment of Priest-Kings" and not of Treve.
Honestly I don't see how anyone could have made that connection in the first place, but I've been surprised by less.
In any event, thank you.
I wish you well,
by Fogaban on 10/12/2016 at 4:47 pm

Greetings, Fogaban. Firstly, I would like to say that I love your website and find it extremely useful for quick reference and thank you for taking the time to create such an extensive catalog. I would like to make a minor suggestion in the Physician category. The quote from Priest-Kings of Gor - Page 64 may suggest to the guest that the physicians of Treve made this ointment, when the sentence proceeding it states the Priest-Kings as the creator. I say this because some roleplayers use this as a reason to have this medicine on-hand from a voyage to Treve. Again, thank you for this wonderful lexicon of knowledge.

Greetings Master,3 years ago i came to one of yer broadcasts on second life and i enjoyed it much,and i wanted to thank ye for this website,i have posted the link to this site in the gorean group i have on facebook so more can see yer amazing work and the help ye provide Master

Greetings krista,
The Caste of Sleen Trainers and Sleen Breeders is combinined into one page. Howerver, I agree, there should be a separate heading link for Sleen Trainers, especially since they are one of the few Castes with named colors.
Good girl.
by Fogaban on 03/21/2015 at 07:46 am

Master i think you missing caste of Sleen Trainers? "He no longer now wore the brown and black common to professional sleen trainers." --- Beasts of Gor p.g. 78 "The five most common trainings are those of the war sleen, which may also be utilized as a bodyguard; the watch sleen, to guard given precincts; the herding sleen, which will kill only if the quarry refuses to be herded rapidly and efficiently to a given destination, usually a pen or slave cage; the trailing sleen, which is used, in leash, to follow a scent; and the hunter, which is trained to hunt and kill. It is next to impossible to use a hunter as a trailer, because, when the quarry is near, and the killing fever is on it, it will even turn and attack its leash holder, to free itself for the strike on the quarry. A trailer is usually a smaller beast, and one more easily managed, but it is, when all is said and done, a sleen, and trailers not unoften, at the hunt's end, their instincts preponderating, breakloose.. etc etc
by Krista (krista1k) on 03/20/2015 at 5:39 pm

Greetings krista,
The Caste of Poets has always been referenced. It's just that it was included with the Caste of Singers.
However, your post does point out how it would be better if these were separated, at least in the menu.
Consider this your contribution. *smiles and ruffles your hair*
by Fogaban on 02/03/2015 at 4:34 pm

greetings master, i hope you are well ... perhaps the Caste of Poets should be included?... "I wondered at this for the Caste of Musicians had been, like the Caste of Poets, exiled from Tharna. Theirs, like the Caste of Poets, had been a caste regarded by the sober masks of Tharna as not belonging in a city of serious and dedicated folk, for music, like Paga and song, can set men's hearts aflame and when men's hearts are aflame it is not easy to know where the flame may spread." Outlaw of Gor i wish you well master! Krista Gorean Campus

Greetings Aedonix,
I appreciate your comment which I will say, confused me. I suppose I need to check my own site more often.
The change in formatting was not intentional. We have found the error and corrected it.
Unfortunately for you, this means back to black text on an orange background. I apologize if this makes it more difficult for you.
by Fogaban on 01/04/2015 at 12:57 am

Formatting in the Q&A section is showing black text on a black background. Also in most pages, the text header which reads "~The Gorean Cave~" seems to have a large gap between it and the body of the page. All in all loving the new look, much easier to read than the old Black on Orange.
by Aedonix on 01/03/2015 at 2:04 pm

I "read" Your web site. The article about the girl asking "where is Gor?" made me think about the "duel sword" John Norman created for us. In one sense He has given us a whole other world (almost real) to dream about and in the other sense He has created frustration and sadness for us because that world is only in our minds. Sad! I must say You know our planet Gor. I have also fantasied about creating a "Gorean Games gathering" in which we could live our preferred life for a weekend (at-least). Competitive Master games for the Men in the day and games for the slaves to compete to see who is the "best" slave or something like that. Maybe a fashion show on Saturday night/
by Charley on 11/10/2014 at 2:59 pm

You produced some decent points there. I looked on the net to the problem and discovered many people goes together with along along with your web site.

I would love to see a section devoted to geography where various quotes were arranged by city or region.
by James P on 08/13/2014 at 9:22 pm

This girl must thank you for all the information and records you have provided. Just found a new book. Has anyone else read Jindara - The Golden Ankle. It's a about two young girls growing up in an exotic slave house. It's not true Gor, but it's something quite amazing. I loved it. Strange and wonderful. Thought I'd share. Keep up the great work !
by Miranda on 08/09/2014 at 03:06 am

Thank you for your insight and information. I have read many of the books many years ago and now I am having my girlfriend/slavegirl read them also. She loves them and I am formulating a collaring ritual in which she will receive a slave name. I am leaning to Vella or Tarna but haven't made up my mind yet. Do you know of any groups that connect to the Gorean lifestyle? Keep up the good work. I love the website. Sagemaster Harry
by Harry Elia on 08/08/2014 at 6:23 pm

Scientology is fake because it is based on a series of fictional books - GOR is real and serious despite it being based on a series of fictional books.
by I Love GOR on 06/15/2014 at 01:18 am

I notice in your article on serves, you say this: There is NO occurrence of the words 'slave's heart' or 'slave heart'. Example - "she holds the cup to her breast for three beats of a slave's heart." But actually, in Slave Girl of Gor, we find this: “When the torch is lowered,” called a peasant, lifting up a torch, lit from the fire, “you will run.” “Yes, Master,” we said to him. “The torch will then be placed in the earth,” he said. “When it is fixed in the soil, you will have two hundred beats of a slave girl’s heart.” He pointed to a peasant’s slave, who stood nearby. It's not in the context of serves, but it is used to mark time. Just thought you'd like to know!

Tal Master .... please note it seems the web site has "canjellne" spelt incorrectly with an extra "i"?

i love your sight and use it all the time, it is the most complete Gor info sight i have ever seen. Is there however anyway to search your sight for specific information, it would be super helpful!
by nadhiyah on 05/02/2014 at 03:09 am

I just wanted to thank You for Your time and effort that went into this website.
by Rebecca on 04/27/2014 at 04:12 am

How about a list of spices used on the novels but didnt think to write them would be helpful

You have done great job on this site. It's one of my favorites.. thanks for all the work you have put into it.. thanks!!

Is there such thing as Calendula in the gorean series for greens to use.
by Thorn on 03/11/2014 at 03:43 am

“I fear,” said Lord Nishida, “we lie beneath the shadow of the iron dragon.” Gor book 33 chapter 1 There are dragons on gor, they are even mention in book 30. Would be nice to see the quotes here . But she knows many goreans dislike the thougjt of dragons on gor
by pet(S) on 02/05/2014 at 11:19 am

Tal, I have been looking for the earth equivalent of a Gorean 5-Strap and have not been able to find anything that remotely simulates the instrument. I was wondering if you had any leads on where one might be able to purchase one or if you might know who I could contact to have one made. Thank you. I wish you well
by Master Vivid on 12/03/2013 at 00:36 am

The letters "cho" do not appear as a word in the series.
by Fogaban on 11/08/2013 at 9:27 pm

Tal Master, I have a question, in some part of the books the word "cho" appears? Cause I dont know is that is another onlineism. Thank you (sorry about my english).

Can poison girls be owned and used by the black caste?
by Danielle on 08/22/2013 at 11:07 am

where is any reference on using match's or smoking in Gor
by matchs or smoking in gor on 08/05/2013 at 8:03 pm

If your purpose is to make me look bad, I will remind everyone of what it says on the main page "Also, at the time these questions were asked and answered, there were only 25 Books available. Therefore you won't find references to Books which have come out since."
by Fogaban on 07/29/2013 at 9:57 pm

in you Q&A section #145 I saw you said there was none, and then I saw this under a different one -"Is the pit master truly human?" I asked. "Of course," she said. "He cannot help that he was born as he was." I looked down. "He is afraid to go to the surface," she said, "in spite of his intelligence, and his great strength, for there even children mock and ridicule him. It is better that he is here." Witness of Gor Book 26 Page 300
by Nate on 07/29/2013 at 6:57 pm

If I left this page without making a comment I would feel as though I didn't show my appreciation. So with that being said, Thank you. You have done a tremendous amount of work to compile all this very useful information and I am very thankful you did. I have just started embarking on the discovery of the "Gor Books" and the "lifestyle". It has been a very intriguing journey to date. Your page has been bookmarked on my computer because I revert back to it several times to confirm other information that I receive. Again thank you. You have done an amazing job with this page. I appreciate all the time and effort it has taken you to do it. I hope all is well.
by Joni on 05/15/2013 at 5:22 pm

I read in your Q&A section, and I think the remark itself is an old one, but you advise on how a slave always kneels in nadu if a man is present, despite a free woman being also. In some incidences within the novels we see how slaves DID kneel in nadu before FW, but I have seen too many examples where this was not the case. (Women ordering slaves to shut their legs, men doing the same when women were present.) Your own references show how a woman's rank is a factor in how a slave must negotiate this etiquette. "'They are not about now," she said, 'and even if they were, it is I who am Mistress here, not they.' " Also, with men present: She knelt in the position of the tower slave, not that of the pleasure slave, as there was a free woman present. Swordsmen of Gor Book 29 Page 180 Also: "She is in the presence of a free woman," said Cabot. "It is thus appropriate that she kneels in the Tower position." Kur of Gor Book 28 Page 342.

To Ellie Spirtor, There is now such a feature. *smiles*
by Fogaban on 03/30/2013 at 1:38 pm

Can you put a search field on your site so you can search the entire site? I have found your information most expertly compiled and it helps in my discussions. Thanks!
by Ellie Spiritor on 03/16/2013 at 7:13 pm

Tal Fogaban I quote "~The Gorean Cave~ is not a substitute for the Books themselves." I could not agree more. There is no sbstitute for the books within them all the knowledge of Gor is contained. I refer to them as "The Great Scrolls". However, while The Cave is not and does not pretend to be a substitute for the Graet Scrolls it is one of the finest, non-book educational tools available to those wishing to learn of Gor. Not a substitute but an excellent supplement and reference. I congratulate you on the amount of work that you have put in to produce this wonderful reference supplement for the greater good of Gor. I wish you well Fogaban _Cernius of the Scribes

This girl not only has done a Bazi Tea (LOL) service but knows where it came from into the online Gorean culture. It stems from a very old Japanese tea service with the 3 cups each meaning something like wishing for long life, fortune, prosperity, etc. ~ Smiles
by [naomi] RBC on 02/07/2013 at 04:26 am

I want to say thank you Master for this site. I read the books and I check your site for what I'm learning to see if they match and so far I'm gleaning the same information that you're sharing here. Tal and be Well
by [naomi] RBC on 02/07/2013 at 04:22 am

Looks amazing Master, alot more detailed then a girls site years ago. Thank you for all that you have done.
by tala{BDI} on 01/26/2013 at 11:36 pm

I have just discovered your website and not knowing much about Gor or Gorean lifestyle found it amazing. Congratulations on putting together a wonderful source of information.

The 'Gorean Cave' is well done. It is one of the few Gorean websites that I regularly direct new folks to visit for specific information. Thank you.
