From Barbarians of Gor

Tal and Welcome to the Barbarians of Gor website. If you are interested in applying to play with us then you will need to know the following information before applying. Please note our Application is not about proving you can role-play or how much you know about Gor - we are happy to teach. But we DO need to make sure you have read and understood the server setting, the rules and the changes we have made to the game play of Conan through various mods.

This main page will serve as a quick cheat sheet.

Introduction

GorAi2.jpg

Is that light up ahead? You push through your exhaustion, swimming as best you can towards the distant beach, your feet finally touching solid ground. Staggering forward you fall to your knees. Waves batter you from behind as you start to crawl towards dry land. Gasping, you choke, the water coursing around you, crashing against your body and shoving you onward. You finally manage to drag yourself to the shore and out of the raging water.

Your life as you knew it is over. What brought you here is no longer relevant. Your history made you who you are, but the past and your experience will only guide what happens to you now. Your previous life, before you stepped out of that raging storm, all your friends, your connections, your entire existence, is gone. Were you a wealthy merchant, a skilled warrior, or a bound slave? None of that matters now.

Turning your head, you look back at the writhing maelstrom moving its way out to sea. You have no idea how you managed to survive, and whether that survival was a blessing or a curse. The freezing, damp air that you suck into your starving lungs stings yet you still count it as a blessing from the gods after a long struggle to succumb to the deep. You manage to get to your feet again and look around. Brushing the sand and seaweed from the heavy clothing that clings, hanging from your body like an anchor. You try to survey your surroundings through the trio of moons dimly lighting the clouds above you.

There is hope. In the distance, you can see civilization ahead, torches and lamps lighting the night sky in a warm glow of hundreds of flickering lights. Dragging yourself forward, praying to any deity that may be listening that somehow there is a good samaritan ahead who can help or at least not want to actively harm you.

Welcome to Barbarians of Gor, a BtB PvP-RP experience set in a land not that dissimilar to Earth’s Hyborian age.

Server Setting

Barbarians of Gor is a by the book (BtB) Gorean role-play server that is set in a group of islands many hundreds of pasangs west of the mainland in the middle of Thassa (the sea). The group of islands is collectively known as World's End, and this season we are playing on the island of New Sardar (Exile Lands Map). Goreans, from the mainland, are marooned on these islands with no opportunity to return home and must make the best of it on a small island surrounded by hostile flora, fauna and natives. This island is less then 200 pasang square and numbers a population in the thousands, not tens of thousands.

This season the people of Vargor have pushed back the Stygians and begin to expand into the nearby protectorates. All story and role-play is centered around the immediate area of Vargor with its different cultures and regions.

How will your character adapt to an unfamiliar land and the making of allies from those once enemies? Some things will change simply because you aren't in Kansas any more, and some things will remain the same. Only the adaptable will survive.

While it is valid for a character to be antagonistic towards other cultures, the setting is one of survival and characters may have to “adapt or die”. We encourage players to moderate their BtB opinions against the reality of the setting. There are many examples in the books of characters integrating, however temporarily, into situations not of their Home Stone/Land.<Read More>

Races

Our server offers three "races" for players to choose from; Gorean, Hyborian and Earthling. (These races are less actual races and more references to geographical locations like we might say Asian or European.)

  • Goreans are those characters who were born on the mainland of Gor which includes the large continent and surrounding islands represented in the book series by John Norman.
  • Hyborians are those characters who were also born on the planet of Gor but specifically from an unknown region of the planet generally referred to as World's End by the Gorean mainlanders. These Hyborians are the descendants of humans taken from Earth's far history, more then 10,000 years ago.
  • Earthlings are those characters taken from modern day earth to be brought to Gor primarily to become slaves.

About Gor

By the Book

It is our intention to create a game environment that is suitable for By the Book Gorean role-players. We have carefully curated our selection of mods and scripts with this in mind, and intend to continue doing so. However, there are limits on what we are willing to enforce. <Read Me>

New to Gor

The new to Gor section offers links and articles to help new players get up to speed on our fiction. We are attempting to cultivate a like-minded community that is pro-Gor. We take our fiction seriously and expect you to learn. Our application is focused on making sure you are reading about our setting and rules - not about proving you know the fiction. But don't take this as indication that we are not as serious about our fiction as other servers may be.

If you're not yet on page with this goal, you're welcome to join us as long as you're moving toward the goal. If you have no desire to fit in (or worse, you're just here for easy targets), this may not be the server for you. <Read Me>

About Gorean Slavery

"What is most important to note is that Gorean slavery is but a single aspect of a much larger realm. If you feel that Gor is only about slavery, then you are missing out on a vast world of other Gorean ideas and concepts. Gorean philosophy touches on metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, political philosophy and so much more. It draws its inspiration from such sources as Plato’s The Republic, the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius and Nietzsche’s Beyond Good and Evil. It deals with more than just personal relationships, encompassing also how man interacts with government, society and nature. In these respects, it is vastly more encompassing than BDSM or D/S. BDSM and D/S are most often a matter of personal relationships, the interaction of two people.

We are here for more then just private personal relationships, but rather seek to explore the entire scope of the fiction as a living breathing world. <Read More>

About Conan Exiles

Barbarians of Gor is set in the virtual world of Conan Exiles. Conan Exiles is available from Steam. There is a significantly discounted version of the game from CD Keys. If you need help purchasing the game please open a ticket. We highly recommend launching the game through Steam as we use custom mods which are automatically downloaded and installed when the server is launched through Steam.

Our server is set up to promote group play and is not intended to be viable as a solo player. Even small clans will want to work with other clans to meet the needs of large building and thrall projects. Additionally, many of the new features, such as sorcery and golems have been restricted or eliminated to fit the fiction of Gor. Gor is a harsh world, and the game play matches that. <Read More>

GorAi3.jpg

Some things you might not know about Conan Exiles and Private Servers:

  • The game can be purchased for under $10 via CD Keys for Steam, come ask us how. You will need the DLC Isle of Siptah.
  • Even if you do not own a DLC you can SEE and USE items from those DLCs, you just can not craft them yourself.
  • PvP can be restricted based on online clan numbers - it doesn't have to be about getting your base destroyed while you are off line.
  • Purge settings can also be set similarly.
  • Building damage and decay can be adjusted.
  • While you do need to trust those in your clan, we are scripting a "super clan" or RP Town system that will allow small clans to SAFELY ally.

About Second Life

GorAi4.jpg

For a long time, we have felt that role-play in second life would be significantly improved by a "game to play". One that brought the world into focus by providing the ability to interact with the world with things such as; game economy, needed resource gathering, crafting, expanded PvP options including the ability to damage buildings and more. Conan Exiles offers a nearly perfect game setting for the world of Gor. <Read More>

About the Team
