The Horettes performed by special request of Master Gorm Runo at his Gorean Compass broadcast on Tuesday, April 23, 2019. The topic of discussion was how views of women and femininity have changed over the years. Part of the discussion included the topic of how women view their own sexuality as it relates to the attention of men.
Master Gorm asked the Horettes to dance and each girl, in typical Horette and Gorean slave dance fashion, emoted her feelings of how it felt to be noticed by men and how it felt to dance before them. The video along with the emotes are included below.
On Friday, April 5, Master Gorm gathered the HoR elite slaves at the Caer to celebrate the accomplishments of his girl, colleen, and to promote her to the status of HoR elite slave.
Master Gorm began the ceremony by speaking words of pride for his girl, colleen. He described her impressive work ethic, her leadership, and her loyalty. He praised her efforts with maintaining the bosk herds which provide much needed meat to feed the tharlarion racing teams. Finally, he describe her kajira heart, that which truly separates a HoR elite slave from all the rest. Through tear-filled eyes, colleen graciously accepted her promotion and reaffirmed her commitment to her owner and to the House of Runo.
Cheers of congratulations erupted from the HoR elite slaves gathered as Master Gorm promoted colleen and officially made her a HoR elite slave. Congratulations, colleen! Well deserved!
Recently a few new addition has been added to the docks of Caer Cadarn. The addition of boat tours, thanks to Lady Safira. Each tour covers a different region of the three region conglomerate.

Caer Cadarn, home of The Black Tarn Tavern and Inn and The House of Runo are excited to announce their move to a brand new location. The whole of The House of Runo is now three sims all combined with a single purpose.
Caer Cadarn will be the resort and event center of the three sims within Second Life. Delta Coast is the other connected sim and houses the House of Runo Farms, the Gorean Emporium store, the village center and housing and the village shops. It will be a place of commerce.
Also as part of the three sim collective is a northern sim known as Hrafnar’s Landfall, under the command of Jarl Hrothgar. More will be said about these two sims in upcoming posts.
On Caer Cadarn you can find The Black Tarn Tavern & Inn. The central location of Tavern Nights and a place to stay during your visit to the Caer Cadarn Resort. All amenities are provided, including drinks, meals and sultry slaves to meet your every need.
Many activities occur at Caer Cadarn, including broadcasts on Goreans Portal Radio. Tavern nights, as mentioned about, are one of those events. These are scheduled at 5pm SLT on Sunday and 7pm SLT on Thursday. All are welcome to attend. To keep track of the schedule of events we provide an event calendar on the tarn ship as you approach the resort island of Caer Cadarn.
One very popular event is another Goreans Portal Radio broadcast brought to you by Master Gareth. He will often broadcast on the relaxing and sunny beach of Caer Cadarn. His radio shows are often very well attended and as always there are slaves dancing and serving for your pleasure. These amazing broadcasts occur on Sunday 11am and Tuesday 5pm SLT.
Caer Cadarn and The House of Runo are very interested in the arts which can be found within Second Life. These include theater, dancing, sculpture, painting and more. As such a place has been provided known as The Marpai Theater, named after a citizen of Caer Cadarn who was very involved in the arts, mainly music, that could be found within Second Life and Gor.
Caer Cadarn is one of the eminent Gorean Resorts within Second Life and as such provides many locations to just relax and enjoy time with friends. One can find cuddle spots all over the island, including the Pleasure Garden and of course, The Bath House. Both fully staffed with sensual slaves to attend to your every need.
Not only can one relax in beautiful gardens and baths of Caer Cadarn, but adventure and competition can also be found among the activites located on the island. Monthly fishing tournaments, a weekly spear tournament and Tharlarion Races also occur within the resort.
The House of Runo is very involved in Tharlarion Racing and fully supports the races providing an exciting race track known as Delta Downs where tharlarion riders and racers can face many obstacles, such as bosknados, deadly snakes and twisty death tunnels as they rush to beat their fellow competitors.
So come explore, relax and enjoy at the beautiful Caer Cadarn Resort in Second life – Where goreans go to get away!
Last Sunday Evening, March 31st, 2019 we celebrated a very special birthday. Goreans love life and they love to celebrate and that is what we did. We recognized the man who started what we all enjoy right now, Master Gorm Runo, the administrator of Caer Cadarn and the owner of the House of Runo.
The celebration started with a surprise appearance by one of our favorite broadcasters from Goreans Portal Radio – Master Angel Aji. He brought us all the the beach where a large cake awaited along with decorations. He played his amazing mixes just for Master Gorm while the girls danced and the Free enjoyed.
After a wonderful time on the beach we moved to the tavern which had been decorated with baseball regalia. A large baseball diamond occupied the center of the tavern and served as a dance area for those girls that danced. Vendors for hot dogs, pretzels and popcorn were placed around the edges along with cut outs of some of the Colorado Rockies players. Balloons and other festive decorations were interspersed.
Although it was earth decorations (because Master Gorm loves baseball and the Rockies) gorean decorum and customs pervailed. The slaves served the Free and traditional gorean drinks of paga, ale, mead and such were also available. Again the girls served and danced while the Free relaxed, enjoyed and celebrated.
Decorations were provided by Dawn, an elite slave of the House of Runo, and the music was provided by tabi, a slave in the House of Runo and a broadcaster on Goreans Portal Radio. A good time was had by all and it was shown that we are indeed Second Life Goreans incorporating a Gorean way of lie while still enjoying some of our earth customs.
After the celebration in the tavern we all convened atop one of the towers over at Delta Coast and were treated to an amazing firework’s display put on by Rhiannon. It was a terrific ending to an amazing celebration….one which we hope to celebrate many more times in the future
Happy Birthday Master Gorm!
During the celebration each girl provided Master Gorm with a short message of how much he means to them and how much they enjoy being a part of the House of Runo and Caer Cadarn. Those messages are included below
A little over a year ago, a very shy and quiet girl landed on the docks of Caer Cadarn. The girl had no idea what Gor was but Master Gorm of the HoR and the citizens of Caer Cadarn taught me. They trained this girl in the ways of the kajira, guiding her as she cried and struggled as she settled into her slavery, finally clawing her way through the training to earn the prestigious title of HoR elite slave.
Being a HoR means to me, being part of a family, belonging to a sisterhood that cares for and encourages one another, working together for the greater good, to please Master Gorm and build on his vision of the best and most realistic SL Gorean life possible.
HoR and Master Gorm allowed this girl to discover who she was, engaging her mind in the philosophies of what Gor was and how it can be interpreted. Through his guidance and teachings, this once quiet and shy slave of the HoR blossomed into a vibrant and obedient slave.
Although this girl no longer belongs to HoR, she will never forget the year she spent in the best slave house in Gor and will always consider the Caer her home and in her heart she will always keep fond memories of her time in the HoR. where a part of her heart will always remain
Happy Birthday Master of us . I would like to first say thank you so much for taking us into your then small village , for showing this kajira the new way to hold her head up high proud of her accomplishments as well as learning from her failures. she is grateful to you for the time you take to teach her and the others the way you see Goreans within the second life community i am proud to be one. As i continue down this long road i want you to know that even with things that have come up and challanges and such that she will strive to always make her goal to shine brightly as a proud HOR girl.
Your my strength and weakness i grow i break and cry and grow stronger and remember that in the end i will be better for the lessons and patience you have given to me. I remember when i was away for personal reasons and you said just come back and resume your place and don’t worry ,those words meant so much. To this day i am proud to be a HOR and hold my head up high.
PS: i overslept today and no we dont have to read it on the air but i am glad to be here and a part of his day to celebrate our great Administrator. thank you for all you do and the happiness you bring to so many.
humbly in service ayana.
I have to say when I first came to the House of Runo., I thought, they are gonna say I know to much, and that I shouldn’t do the program. But i was accepted in and am learning a lot of new things, and meeting very nice people who are all like family. I am now an advanced student, and wish to go further and loving it! With my Master not being around a lot, I feel like any one here would protect me. Thank you Master Gorm for letting me be a HOR, I feel like family and feel that your are my Master too. when my Master isn’t around. I don’t think I would be anywhere else. I wish you a happy birthday! Laci
I came to Caer by chance. I was looking for a place .. where I could be owned. I found Caer and the girls here started teaching me how to be a kajira. Because pleasing is into my blood …. I love pleasing. I love making people happy. Helping the ones who guide me.
I was thinking about the above words and it made me think about myself …what I had to work with in me as a person to serve and please completely. I was always shy and felt embarrassed at times and it makes things hard to talk to people It was me in the past and maybe still, but right now I feel more freedom in my slavery. When I started my journey here I was lost and trying to find myself, looking for ways to express my feelings instead of being sad or feeling bad . Was a long way to walk in to find out that to open myself completely is the key .. of that I am sure.
A Kajira needs to be interesting, playful, talkative, have the ability to talk through her eyes. It is a way to capture the attention of the free and Masters. As time went by, more and more feeling part of this Gorian world. Every day i felt it deeper and my goal was be totally and completely engaged in this home and people living here… to feel I am with the other chain sisters not only by word but by heart too.
I sunk into my lessons, trying to please and be pleasing. I was assisted along the way by many dear krajira, and you know who you are. I met many a Master along the way. Some I met were non-Gor idiots and empty Masters that have nothing to teach. They did not see me for the treasure that is a true kajira.
I have found that a kajira is a treasure. A kajira is property, owned by her Master; once she wears his collar, she is his heart body and soul. I found out that even as she is his property, she has voice, she can make the choice to submit to her Master, and when she does, she will give everything she is and has inside her heart.
I found out also that being a Kajira is a way to express her freedom through her heart and mind. Pleasing her Master is a way to be free in her own wishes.
I feel in my heart that all lessons that I had here made me grow up and more confident in myself and I try hard make my Master proud of me and if he wishes sell me I feel me ready to please a Master beyond myself, keep the spirit to serve him, know his needs, show him each day my love of serving him, accept a punishment and wisdom to follow his lead.
A word from Rris, Susy’s Master: I have been lucky enough to of come across Susy in Caer and her Elite Training by HoR. She can have a rough edge or two, but has become and is my Heart here in this world. We talk, we communicate, she gets frustrated, and we discuss, she learns, she pleases, she expresses her willingness to be all she can be for me. She is a true Kajira, pleasing, wonderful, sexy, robust, and knows her own mind. She has told me many a time she loves my guidance and we work together so well. She is indeed a treasure, and I am so proud to call her mine.
Master Gorm he has helped me grow in my service and i am better for having known him his training has helped me to be better serving and more in turn with my slave heart so i can serve with passion, The House of Runo welcomed me with open arms and my sisters in chains try to help me be more confident. His passion for gor has expanded her knowlege in and out of this world . My word are not always come out right but he has patience and understanding and accepts all of me flaws and all and for that i will always be grateful . Happy Birthday Master of Me and wishing you many more . happy in service Fire
I used to come to Tavern Nights the old Caer of years ago when I was collared to someone else, and even when I had no Owner. i never wanted to leave back then. I am so grateful that you put this bit of steel about my neck and gave me a home. I never wish to leave here. You are without a doubt in my mind and heart the best Master that I have had.. I wish you a very happy birthday and many more to come.
WHAT BEING A HOR HAS MEANT TO ME
It is a challenge for me to put into words all of the different reasons why I am grateful to be a part of the HoR and Master’s chain. Over the past year he has given me so much and simple statements would never be enough to show my gratitude to him. On a near daily basis he encourages me, challenges me, and puts a smile on my face. He never lets me settle for being any less than I am capable of being and pushes me to grow as a slave in service to him and to our community. The journey as a HoR slave is not always easy, but it is purposeful and has helped me to mature in my slavery. I am forever grateful to Master for all he has given me and allowed me to become. Happy birthday, Master. I hope you have an amazing year ahead and I look forward to spending it on my knees in your service.
Tuka thinks back all the time listened to master traveling across the United States. Master and lily on one fun adventure. The one day tuka was sold to Master. Got to see the first Cear built and help. Today almost 6 years later tuka is still as much yours Master as her first day in your collar. We talked many hours about the philosophy and what Gor should be. Master has always been so helpful and I know I miss our long talks. I will admit I find it hard and hold things in way to long. With all the trouble and turmoil tuka has been in the center of she has had the privileged to be in the guidance of Master. Tuka is still far from perfect and mess alot up but under your tutelage tuka has grown. My heart tuka has learned belong to Master having been sold once and is so happy Master reclaimed her. Master tuka wants to say your tuka is very sorry how hard it can be to handle this slave. Master knows my heart and how much tuka loves our world. Your wisdom and knowledge is so attractive and tuka still sits in awe of Master. The times I do get to be in your presence still makes my heart race. Tuka begs to never give up on her and never let tuka give up on herself. We will win as tuka listens and learns more from Master. tuka hopes today Master sees just how special Master is to us girls. We want to serve Master and be pleasing to you. Tuka wants to make her Master proud of her and what Master has done molding a strong willed, emotional, Sometime irrational but loving slave that is yours Master.
Tuka (Arwin Bratlett)
In one month i will have been a HoR slave for four years. If you would have told me, four years ago, that i would be living a dream in four years i would have never believed it, but, it has happened and it is because of my Master. Master has taught me to control my emotions, embrace balance in all things, to follow the Gorean compass and to surrender even more than i knew i had within me to surrender. i can honestly say that being a HoR has saved my life and made me into a better person, both in my real life and here in SL. On your birthday Master, i thank you for saving this girl, in every way a girl can be saved. For teaching me to be better, to never give up and to always reach higher. she loves you with all she is and hopes to celebrate many more birthdays as your kajira. Forever and Always Your Rhiannon
Happy Birthday, Master.
I remember the day I met you when mutual friend suggested I come talk to you. I had been released from my previous Master and wandering and alone. My experiences thus far in Gor had not been good. This friend suggested I come talk to you and I asked her why? LOL. I came and spoke with you, listened to your wise words and thus was born something I would repeat over and over, “I like the way your mind works, “Master”
I came to you one day and knelt before you begging your collar and completely unsure of what would happen. September 17, 2011 – the day you put your collar about my neck and I became your’s. It’s been almost 8 years at your feet now, Master, and I have grown to know what Gor is really about, what being a slave really means and many more things far too numerous to list. You have been my strength, my guidance, my mentor and my friend through it all. So much more than just a Master, you wisdom and humor have brightened my days and I find myself still saying, “I like the way your mind works, Master”
Both in Second Life and even more so in Real Life I am your slave, Master and I will accompany you. I wish you a very Happy Birthday and hope for many more celebrations to come. I love you, Master.
Your slave and cat, tabi
I am a slave I am a woman in all my vulnerability I am not unintelligent I understand that my duty is to serve I realize that once I decided to be kajirae that all other right to chose was lost and the only way to get choice back is to leave Gor completely I understand that I serve ALL Free not just whom I choose I understand that I will not always like the service I am ordered to give but that I will give it none the less I understand the vector of pleasure is directed toward the Free and not myself. I understand that the Free do not have to do anything for me I accept that my place is at the feet of those stronger then myself I accept that my heart will not be the responsibility of the Free I accept that how hard my slavery is lays completely at my feet I accept even though I may be asked my opinion on a matter does not mean my words hold any weight. I accept I am property I rejoice in my chains I love my place at the Free’s feet I grow in my service to the Free I accept my slave heart and slave belly I swear to do all in my power to please I swear that no matter what, my first thought of the day will be on the Free’s pleasure, and my last thought of the day will be were the Free pleased. I accept that I will be brought to task for being displeasing I swear to take instruction with understanding, that the Free has taken their time to give it to me and I will be grateful and will listen and implement their instructions I understand that everyone has bad days, but I will not allow my bad day to hinder my service to the Free I will not allow myself to be pulled into petty squabbles of other slaves or submissives I swear to place my heart and soul into every moment of service to the Free I will be grateful for every chance I am given to serve knowing that it is by the grace of the Free that I am allowed to serve I will not argue with the Free whether they are right or wrong my only answer is to be yes Master or yes Mistress and to do as I am told. I understand slavery is not about love I understand my place in the natural order I am his kajira
And not to be outdone, Master Jack our blacksmith wrote an orignal limerick just for Master Gorm:
There once was an old jarhead named Gorm, The kajira he often did swarm, He spanked ‘em and stirred ‘em, loved ‘em, and furred ‘em, Never doing no harm, in dear old Cadarn.
As a few people know The House of Runo has moved to a new sim. We are now connected to 2 other sims which include The Delta Coast and Jarl Hrothgar’s sim. We are still in the building phase and have much to do, but as we were moving and building Lady Safira wrote this nice little essay. We thought it would be nice to share for everyone.
I was thinking back to the early days of text based Gor, we had none of the trappings that we do now. No avatars, no buildings, no props, everything was rp out, and communicated in a textual manner. We had taverns, that we described with words, it had rooms that our minds painted. We developed whole cities in IRC, Turia, Thentis, Ar all springing up during this time period and again all textual, some of us even created web sites with pictures that we used to help paint the picture of Gor.
Then along came SecondLife, the opportunity to create visuals with our text based rp. In the beginning of SecondLife our avatars looked pretty goofy compared to todays standards. We didn’t have mesh bodies, or mesh clothing, our hair was a mess and our buildings lacked the curves and style that we have now with mesh. Yet we continued to build our Gorean communities in awe of the technology. Cities sprang up, The Black Tarn, owned by Capton Jacobs, Port Kar by Marak, Ar by Fidelio and Ko-Ro-Ba owned by Scar. Each week and month brought a different Gorean sim into existence. Technology evolving drastically since 2004, our goofy looking avatars now looking nearly human and alive. Our buildings evolved into true works of art. We have scripts that allow us to have sex, scripts to fly us through the air on tarns, and all the other goodies to make Second LIfe appear even more real than it did in 2004. But I ask have we gotten too caught up in the technology and lost sight of what is truly important?
There are days I find myself wondering what is is we have sworn to as citizens? Did we swear to a build? Did we swear to a land, or did we swear to a community, to an idea, to a belief? I would like to think that each of us that swore to our Home Stone, swore to that family, that is independent of a build, or objects or nice to haves. I would like to think that even if we logged in one day and there was nothing on Caer Cadarn at all, those that have sworn and committed to this community would still be here, being Gorean and supporting one another in our beliefs. Raising one another up, challenging each other daily to be better, to raise the bar, to raise our own personal standards.
Change is hard on everyone, we all are used to how things were, and when changes happens in real life or our second life, it is normal to feel a bit unsettled, but I implore each and every one of you to remember what does Gor mean to you? What does swearing to your Home Stone mean to you? I did not swear to a build, but I swore an allegiance, to defend Caer Cadarn, our beliefs, our commnity and the people that make up Caer Cadarn.
I would like to think that even if we logged in one day and there was nothing on Caer Cadarn at all, those that have sworn and committed to this community would still be here, being Gorean and supporting one another in our beliefs.
