Recently the Horettes participated in a Dance Troupe Competition with Second Life. They did an amazing job and wanted to share the performance. The Horettes dance to promote and share the joy they feel serving among the Free of Caer Cadarn. In the words of rhiannon:
The HoRettes are a troupe of dancers that do their best to follow the Gorean Compass, by being beacons that blaze bright through service, integrity and loyalty. Formed 3 years ago by the Troupe Leader Rhiannon, the HoRettes started off as a small group of House of Runo slave girls and now, 30 members strong, represents dancers from cities and villages all over Gor. Dancing today to entertain you are Rhiannon as the bearded lady, Fire as Ring Master, Ava as Tattoo Lady, Mira as Albino Amazon, Ruby as Trapeze Girl and Kitten as Little Miss America. Props are Luna the Lion, Beast and Raven as little elephants. All are kajirae of the Village of Caer Cadarn and Hope to bring Honor to the village this day. A special thanks to Owners, Master Gorm Runo, Master Cole. Mistress Leukothia and Master Romulus for allowing their girls to perform this day. We beg you to be well entertained!!
Yes, we do realize that Christmas is not a Gorean holiday. However, we are earth people living a Gorean life within Second Life and as such we bring our Earth traditions with us. Therefor the House of Runo does celebrate Christmas and other winter holidays.
So for the past month the whole sim of Caer Cadarn, though technically in the delta, has been transported farther north where we could enjoy the snow and all that came with it! During this time we had skating, cross-country skiing, snowball fights, sleds and everything else you might expect from a winter wonderland!
Ice Skating Rink and dance with Grinch

Ice Skating, Cross Country Skiing, Snowball Fights, Sledding and more!
All the residents of Caer Cadarn, both Free and slave had a great time enjoying the wintry weather and activities. We also had a secret santa exchange, a formal ball, many dances and just lots of fun as we celebrated all the winter activities and of course, Christmas!
Skating past the wolves!
Lots of little things to see and do!

And of course, no celebrations on Caer Cadarn would be complete without a performance by the Horettes- a dance troupe led by Rhiannon and supported by all those who live on the Caer and those who support the Caer. It was a wonderful performance and preserved for all to see below!
We at Caer Cadarn and The House of Runo hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and we hope for health and prosperity in the coming year! Thank you for being a part of our 2019 year and we look forward to seeing all of you and your friends in 2020!
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 May 18, 2018 Caer Cadarn had it’s very first dance competition. The event was organized by Mistress MarPai and we thank her very much for all her hard work in organizing what turned out to be an amazing event! Almost all the citizens of Caer Cadarn were there and the girls who danced did an amazing job!
Master Gorm Runo was the emcee for the competition and judges were Master Gorm, Mistress Safira and Master Aegeus. We had four dancers who competed. All four did wonderfully, however only 3 could place. Yet we think that all the girls were winners. Find below each girl’s dance along with pictures.
1st place – Cherry Blossom
She steps into the stage, trembling as the musicans begin to play. Closing her eyes his face fills her mind, the sounds of her home rings in her ears. She looks around the scene changes to him and the beauty of their home. The day changes to night cocooning them in a lovers serenity.
Dropping to the floor touching herself trying to ease her ache as soft sweet moans escaped her lush lips. Teasing hands trail along sensual curves panting as passions flames lick her body into a frenzy. Her heart pounding against the cage of her ribs. Time had not erased the feel of his touch or their home’s beauty making the wildfire in her burn hotter..
On the wind she heard his voice calling out for her. Looking around hoping to see him. “my Master!!”
She cried out her need begging him to end this ache. She couldn’t bring herself to believe he was gone; that their home was no more. Soft blue eyes twinkling like the stars in the night search for him. Soft hands slip into her thick mane as silky lock cascades thru her fingers to fall about her as flames to the fire that was blazing inside her.
Bolder hands caress her body as lusty moans grow louder. The tip of her wet tongue slips out to follow the shape of full lips making them glisten. The burning intensity of her passion threatens to consume her as her body glistens with dots of moisture shining like diamonds against her brown sugar skin.
Shaking as the fire in her explodes into flames shooting skyward. Shaking her screams fill the room…..
All for you my Master. and O/our home,
2nd Place – Rhiannon
lithe arms lift, slowly enticing curvaceous body to twist and bend, the music wafting through the tavern rafters tempts sensual movements. The girl danced gracefully, closing eyes against those observing. Hearth flames cast fiery shadows to play upon creamy flesh as she moved. She cared little whether or not they found her pleasing. Forced to dance or be punished, Rhiannon obeyed.
The song poured into the collared beast and an onslaught of emotions stirred within. Arching back, the slave whipped upright to cast a defiant look of disdain upon the Masters gathered. She spun within the sands throwing crystal shards to scintillate about delicate ankles. An ihn of fear washed through the girl as she took notice of the expressions on the faces of the men.
the tempo increased goading erotic musings. Banked embers sparked to fuel lascivious instincts long buried within the girl. Slender arms sweep to entwine in and out of each other in sinuous fashion, lowering to splay thighs wide and rise back to full height with a snap, the beast whimpered softly against the urgings. Pale skin flushed pink in admittance to the primal need coursing through her veins.. Vulnerable and exposed she rolls her hips bending back before all. More eyes drift to the sands and she feels every one of them upon her.
her heart pounded to the beat of the drums, struggling against the rising tide of turbulent longing kept locked inside, Rhiannon saw his face in the crowd and nearly buckled to round knees. Twin emerald flames blazed with impassioned hunger as torrid shape rocked forward, throwing arms to reach and curl back to grasp at wanton flesh.
Butterflies took flight within an undulating belly as a violent longing threatened to force her to surrender everything to the one that Owned her. Upon the sands the slaves body dipped and swayed like a willow in the wind. Stormy thrums of bare feet punctuated distressed thrusts and despairing attitudes. His azure depths appraised what he owned casually and his slave could deny her need no longer.
she raised slender arms about a head of tousled tresses, round hips rolled as the music played on in the tavern. Suddenly desperate to be found pleasing to her Master, Rhiannon dances with everything she has. Imploring stretches seek approval as taut muscles strain to accentuate every feminine attribute she possessed.
supine spine bent backwards to thrust pert breasts upwards, hands raking down the sides of the naked slave. Frantic need burns dangerously within eyes made for the furs. Every movement made calls to mind alcove pleasures as the slut dances for her Masters pleasure. Needing, wanting, begging… the beast shamelessly moves within the sands, beckoning to her Owner.
melting to her knees, wandering hands run the length of tormented body. Sinful curves twist and turn within the dance pit. With a sob Rhiannon tossed her head back, lifting succulent legs to splay wide before all. Glistening need apparent in the brazen display, the slut moaned and whimpered while writhing piteously in the sand, agonizingly beautiful in carnal need.
Fiery locks flew like a living flame, her head whipping back and forth to exclaim her obvious lust to be raped and used as a slut of Gor! Surrendering everything the beast rocked forward, heated treasure pressed into the unforgiving grains, her eyes beseeching as they lift to seek her Master. Rising back up to knees thrown wide, the kajira rolled her hips hungrily. She knew who she was and reveled in her slavery before all. As the song faded to end, she slowed to rock gently in nadu. She panted, “Please, Master, please use your slave. She surrenders.”
3rd Place – Xenia
I would like to dedicate this dance first to the Master of us, so awesome in his leadership and the Free of Caer for being supportive and friendly,. from the start. And last but not least the kajirae who have taught me to be the best kajira I can be – by showing me how to live. Nods to Tabi
stands on long well-formed legs, entire face lit up with a look of love as baby blue pools fall upon the Free and slaves of her new home. Stringed instruments play softly a song of adoration…
slowly raising arms move to the adornment at thighs kissed softly together and slender fingers curl around the aqua knot, releasing it… resting in the dimming light, naked and unashamed in front of the Free to demonstrate love and devotion, she speaks softly to them, “Because of my love for you, THIS IS WHY I DANCE.”
long line of legs fold and tapered fingers wrap delicately in brunette ribbons… thrusting begging breasts toward them beseechingly… scissoring legs shift to one light kissed thigh, and velvet tones speak to them, “Because you showed you unconditional love toward me, THIS IS WHY I DANCE.”
moves to round pert ass, hand falling gently on flaming cheek, pondering the depths of their hearts, their love, their compassion, their understanding… breathlessly remembering the times of understanding and grace, in smooth tones wafting on the air they hear, “Because of the caring of Your hearts, THIS IS WHY I DANCE.”
basks in their thoughtfulness… the lulling of their voices, the softness of their touch… writhing in fervor over the spirit they share so freely with all, yet cherishing the times of solitude when some focus their attentions on her alone… a sigh escapes pouty, full lips, “Because of the largeness of Your spirit, THIS IS WHY I DANCE.”
elbow bowed softly as fingers tease over mocha face… flames of ardor ignite as all goes dim and soft blue eyes focus only upon them… “Heart of my hearts, Love of my loves, Home of my destiny”… raising my melodious voice to your beckoning ears, “Because you are my true Home, THIS IS WHY I DANCE.”
hears the whisper escape her lips while she slowly looks around to all of them. Perhaps a moment of fear of being so insolent when she moves her arms over her head slender wrists crossed, her bronze crowned head turned to the left, back arched and legs spread.
“I hope to have pleased the Free..” her breathing shallow from the effort she gave her dance “This girl once more submits to the House of her heart” she pleads with that tone of surrender in her voice. Because you Own me, THIS IS WHY I DANCE.
4th Dancer – Ruby
Imagine if you would a newly collared slave girl, collared to the kennels who has been ordered to dance for the frees pleasure, body trembles as she is very frightened
Lays down in the sands looks out to the free that have gathered to watch her, hears the strong Master of Gors voide “Slut dance” eyes the small package on the floor puts what is inside on, This dance is also dedicated to Hoshi who was well known in the dance community of Gor, i was saddened to hear she lost her life to cancer so this is for you my dear friend who was in cartius

rosey silks flow with every move upon the days breeze blows blond tressled hair around her face, finger tips beat the sound of heart, outstretches alabaster arms sun-kissed legs gracefully move as she spins around with soft suttle movements, Rosey cheeks glisten as she moves with each beat of her heart, breasts move with each movement

hips sway to the musicians hands run through blond glossy hair, feels the warmth of collar around neck with Lar Torvis beating down on shiney skin, wide shaped eyes look out to all, spots the one who placed the collar upon her neck, shows submission in all she does.
rocks to and thro in goldens grains arching her back with each movement, the collar shining once again lifts her neck to show all that she is now collared and owned, the joy of being in a collar fills heart, softly speaks “Master of me please mould me into how you wish me to be”
beat gets faster legs gracefully move in time with the beats of her fingertips lifts around her body matches the beating of heart, kissed together legs rock back and forth as she softly speaks “I am yours” silks ticking flesh with each move giggle escapes crimson lips”
as the Masters told her to dance continues to please all who are gathered, emerald eyes look out turns head to see the owner of her, Ruby lips go to a smail, body shimmers in Lar Torvis, dance comes to an end pulls on her silks watches them drop, “Master take me as i am” slows the dance right down before she arches her back places hands on the stands as she now knows her fate “I;m in chains owned and love”
A huge thank you to all the dancers, to Mistress MarPai, to Master Gorm Runo and to all who attended and supported the dance competition.
Oh, and I might mention that the whole affair was broadcast by tabi on Caer Cadarn radio!
The House of Runo does promote the arts whether it be poetry, singing, music, dancing, painting or any other form of art both visual and performing. As such we will begin to post events related to Gorean forms of artistry on the blog.
A few weeks ago tabi entered a dance competition in the city of Teehra within second life. Slave dancing in second life takes on many elements. First there is the music, then there is the animation and lastly the written word. Many times props are also used. Here is tabi’s dance for the Teehra competition.
Tabi is an experienced Gorean dancer within second life. She has been doing this for many years, but has not dance in quite awhile. Back when tabi was competing regularly she was also a regular winner of competitions and was even featured in an article by the late Samos Madrigal – a huge promoter of Gorean slave dance and also a critic who wrote regular articles critiquing the dancers of Gor. He helped hone tabi’s skills and the skills of many dancers within second life Gor. Keep a look out for more posts about the arts of Gor in Second Life!
The House of Runo is thrilled to announce they have a brand new home! We now reside on a full sim which will allow us to invite many more visitors and have bigger and better events and activities.
The Black Tarn Tavern and Inn is one of the main attractions of The House of Runo. It is situated along the vosk delta, only reachable through a small inlet which leads to the dock.
Once landing on the dock visitors can pick up information about the HOR and all it offers. Straight ahead is the Black Tarn Tavern and Inn and off to the right is the village with shops and activities.
The entire sim is known as Caer Cadarn. One won’t find the actual Caer, which is a collection of stone ruins, on the main ground since it is a sacred place. It is to be found up near Master Gorm Runo’s home and can be seen by invitation. However the rest of the Caer (as we affectionately call our new home) is open access.
Caer Cadarn, The Black Tarn Tavern and Inn are all active G&S participants. Products are actually used and consumed with the tavern using G&S coins. Those who live and work with the HOR and at the Caer are all paid salaries, thus creating a thriving economy within the community.
Caer Cadarn follows the philosophy of The House of Runo in that we don’t grow and produce everything that G&S has to offer. We have a large and thriving Tharlarion ranch and we actively race the Tharlarions. We are also known for our HOR Ka-la-na, paga and other strong drinks and so we have a modest Ka-la-na grove. However, there is plenty that we don’t produce which leaves the HOR open to trade with other G&S farms and communities.
The House of Runo doesn’t only focus on G&S productions, however. The community contains at least three broadcasters for Goreans Portal Radio. We have many events which include Tavern Night. Tavern night is just what it says it is. We like to keep it as authentic to what one would expect to find at a real gorean tavern.
You’ll find us enjoying tavern night in the Black Tarn Tavern every Thursday evening at 7pm SLT and Sunday evenings at 5pm SLT. It’s a very popular event and one of the main reasons we moved to a full sim so that more could attend and enjoy.
And don’t worry if you drink too much or aren’t ready to go home and the end of the evening because we have a full inn with plenty of rooms in which to stay and enjoy!
Speaking of enjoyment, Caer Cadarn and The HOR is not all work. Goreans are known for sucking the marrow out of life and enjoying every nuance of their world. As such Caer Cadarn provides many places for relaxation and fun! Lots of romantic locations, quiet locations, adventure or just those little erotic interludes that many enjoy.
For instance, there is a beach over on the side where the vosk delta melds into the Thassa sea. Dancing, swimming, sunning and fun is easy to find there. You’ll find a smooth transition as the vosk gives way to a less swampy and humid environment.
Finally coming to the beach with it’s salty ocean spray and more tropical atmosphere.
Right behind the beach with easy access to fresh water is the bathhouse. Brimming with anything and everything a gorean may need to enjoy their time romping, playing and relaxing in the waters warmed by fires and tended to by beautiful and sensual slave girls!
And next to the beach and bath house is the pleasure gardens. Beautiful gardens in which to relax, talk and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature…. and each other!
Don’t be thinking that all we do at The House of Runo is play and relax, though. We are very much into the arts and entertainment. All of the girls of the HOR are dancers and we are actively involved in the dancing community.
There are also warriors among us. Guardsmen to protect and defend Caer Cadarn and the surrounding area. They must hone their skills and keep sharp! As such there is both a theater/stage area and an arena all ready for those who wish to participate in those activities.
As if all of this wasn’t enough, there is more! A fishing hole with a small cabin are available for the anglers among us. Stocked with fish and other critters roaming which one would usually find within the vosk delta.
Caer Cadarn is home to a variety of citizens. As such, we have even made room in a small corner of the sim for a wagon camp. Plans are in the works for more homes to be constructed for those who wish to live and work within the House of Runo and on Caer Cadarn.
So come visit! Come see what we are all about. The House of Runo is growing and thriving and accepting people of all walks, trades and castes. Just follow the map provided and you’ll be met by a sultry slave who will be more than willing to show you around and answer all your questions. We hope to see you soon!
