The Lands of the Wagon People
"The Wagon Peoples grow no food, nor do they have manufacturing as we know it. They are herders a, and it is said, killers. They eat nothing that has touched the dirt. They live on the meat and milk of the bosk. They are among the proudest peoples on Gor, regarding the dwellers of the cities of Gor as vermin in holes, cowards who must fly behind walls, wretches who fear to live beneath the broad sky, who dare not dispute them the open, windswept plains of their world.
-- Nomads of Gor, pg. 4
"I knew that they spoke a dialect of Gorean, and I hoped I would be able to understand them. If I could not I must die as befitted a swordsman of Ko-ro-ba. I hoped that I would be granted death in battle, if death it must be. The Wagon Peoples, of all those on Gor that I know, are the only ones that have a clan of torturers, trained as carefully as scribes or physicians, in the arts of detaining life."
--Nomads of Gor, pg. 9
Welcome to the Land of the Wagon People. This is a land that is vast and the people are far apart. Yet one unites us the Ubar San or One Ubar. Among those here are the Kataii the Kassar, the Paravaci and finally the Tuchuks. All are welcomed to visit but in order to stay one must be invited and then initiated into the camps. Although each camp is different and the precepts are different the initiation will be the same. For there must be unity between the camps.
The laws of the Wagon people are simple.
Honor and Courage above all.
Even though each people have their own Ubars, the One Ubar is to be respected Honored and most of all when the time comes and He calls you are to follow Him.
All Warriors who wish to fight with the Wagon people must first obtain the courage scar. For that will show to all that they are Honorable and Courageous.
Red Scar : Courage Scar. Always the highest Scar on the face. No other Scars may be given until the Courage Scar is earned.
Yellow Scar : Loyalty Scar. Given to Warriors who have risked their life for a Homestone, or cause.
Blue Scar : Virtue Scar. Scars given to Those true of heart in Their actions and Their words.
Black Scar : Valor Scar. Warriors receive this Scar when They have demonstrated Their Honor and that of Their Homestone during times of conflict.
The Wagon People sometimes pray to the "Spirit of the Sky." They are said to dance to "please the sky." They reverence the sky, and their mythology says that the rain created all things. They pray only when mounted on their kaiila. They pray as a Warrior to an Ubar, not as a servant to a god. They are deeply superstitious; they claim not to care for omens, but stories are told of how a warrior turned his entire army around and went back home based on the flight of a passing bird.
The literature and knowledge is oral. The Camp Singers remember the literature. Few Wagon People can read and none trust writing things down. Each year is named at its end according to some significant event that occurred during it, and the Year Keepers are responsible for knowing the Year Names for thousands of years back.
If you have held grass and earth with us, we would ask that you honor any pledges that is given us or may the Priest-Kings deal with you appropriately.
Holding Grass and Earth
In Gorean, the words for stranger and enemy are the same. Amongst the Wagon People , however, there is a ceremony of brotherhood by which a stranger can be given the status almost of one born to the Wagons. It is called "the holding of grass and earth." The bond thus made between two men can never be broken.
Some quotes on the holding of grass and earth
"Suddenly the Tuchuk bent to the soil and picked up a handful of dirt and grass, the land on which the bosk graze, the land which is the land of the Tuchuks, and this dirt and this grass he thrust in my hands and I held it. The warrior grinned and put his hands over mine so that our hands, together held the dirt and grass, and were together clasped upon it. 'Yes,' said the warrior, 'come in peace to the Land of the Wagon Peoples.'
From Nomads of Gor, p.26
"'He is a stranger,' she said. 'He should be slain!' Kamchak grinned up at her. 'He has held with me dirt and earth,' he said."
From Nomads of Gor, p.32
"'You would risk,' I asked, 'the herds- the wagons- the peoples?' ' Yes,' said Kamchak. 'Why?' I asked. He looked at me and smiled.'Because,' said he, 'we have together held grass and earth.'
From Nomads of Gor, p. 52
Never take what is not yours to take in the first place. The best way to get what you want is to ask for it.
The ties of a Free Companionship will be honored.
Respect the rights of others. Especially those of the Free Woman. It is one thing to disrespect the Men it is another to disrespect the Women of the camp.
"Tuchuk women, unveiled, in their long leather dresses, long hair bound in braids, tended cooking pots hung on tem-wood tripods over dung fires."
-- Nomads of Gor, pg 27
"Free women, incidentally, among the Wagon Peoples are not permitted to wear silk: It is claimed by those of the Wagons, delightfully I think, that any women who loves the feel of silk on her body is, in the secrecy of her heart and blood, a slave girl, whether or not some Master has yet forced her to don the collar."
-- Nomads of Gor, pg. 58
Masters are just that Masters. They are Men of Gor they may do as they wish as long as it doesn't bring shame to the camps. For they are Men. The Women that are free are allowed to be that way because it so pleases the Men.
Free Women are to have that respect given to the Masters.
Dishonor will not be permitted within the wagons. If it is found that someone has Dishonored Himself or that of others it will be dealt with immediately. After the judgment has been brought down it is final and no more will be heard of it.
If there is a problem with one in the camps bring it to the person or persons involved. Face them with Honor and respect and deal with it likewise. If the issue is not able to be resolved between the parties. Then bring it to the Ubars. If it is still is unresolved then the one Ubar will deal with it and the decision will be final.
Slaves are to be accompanied by those who own them. If the slave has no Master or Mistress then they will be protected under the guardianship of the different Ubars of the different camps.
Dress of a free man of the Wagons
"I could see he carried a small rounded shield, glossy, black, lacquered: He wore a conical, fur rimmed iron helmet, a net of colored chains depending from the helmet protecting his face, leaving only holes for the eyes. He wore a quilted jacket and under this a leather jerkin; the jacket was trimmed with fur and had a for collar; his boots were made of hide and also trimmed with fur; he had a wide, five-buckled belt. I could not see his face because of the net of chain that hung before it. I also noted, about his throat, now lowered, there was a soft leather wind scarf which might, when the helmet and veil was lifted, be drawn over the mouth and nose, against the wind and dust of his ride. He was very erect in the saddle. His lance remained on his back, but he carried in his right hand the small, powerful, horn bow of the Wagon Peoples and attached to his saddle was a lacquered, narrow, rectangular quiver containing as many as forty arrows. On the saddle there also hung, on one side, a coiled robe of braided bosk hide and, on the other, a long, three-weighted bola f the sort used in hunting tumits and men; in the saddle itself, on the right side, indicating the rider must be right handed, were the seven sheaths for the almost legendary quivas, the balanced saddle knives of the prairie. It was said a youth of the Wagon Peoples was taught the bow, the quiva, and the lance before their parents would consent to give them a name, for names are precious among the Wagon Peoples, as among goreans in general, and they are not to be wasted on one who is likely to die, one who cannot handle the weapons of the hunt and war. Until the youth has mastered the bow, the quiva, and the lance he is simply known as first, or the second, and so on , son of such and such a father."
Nomads of Gor pg. 10-11~
Dress of a free woman of the Wagons
"Tuchuk women, unveiled, in their long leather dresses, long hair bound in braids, tended cooking pots hung on tem-wood tri-pods over dung fires. These women were unscarred, but like the bosk themselves, each wore a nose ring. That of the animals is heavy and of gold, that of the women also of gold but tiny and fine, not unlike the wedding rings of my old world."
Nomads of Gor pg. 27~
"...free women, incidentally, among the Wagon Peoples are not permitted to wear silk; it is claimed by those of the Wagons delightfully I think, that any women who loves the feel of silk of silk on her body is, in the secrecy of her heart and blood , a slave girl, whether or not some Master has yet forced her to don the collar."
Nomads of Gor pg. 58~
"She was not as the other women of the Wagon Peoples I had seen, the dour, thin women with braided hair, bending over the cooking pots. She wore a brief leather skirt, slit on the right side to allow her the saddle of the kaiila, her leather blouse was sleeveless; attached to her shoulders was a crimson cape; and her wild black hair was bound back by a band of scarlet cloth. Like the other women of the Wagons she wore no veil and, like them, fixed in her nose was the tiny, fine ring that proclaimed her people." "'.......She seemed much different than the other Tuchuk women' I said... Kamchak laughed, the colored scars wrinkling on his broad face, 'Of course,' said Kamchak, she has been raised to be a fit prize in the games of Love War"
Nomads of Gor pg. 32 and 33~
Winter dress of the Wagon Peoples
"The Wintering was not unpleasant, although, even so far north, the days and nights were often quite chilly; the Wagon Peoples and their slaves as well, wore bosk hide and furs during this time; both male and female, slave or free, wore furred boots and trousers, coats and the flopping, ear-flapped caps that tied under the chin; in this time there was often no way to mark the distinction between the free woman and the slave girl, save that the hair of the latter must needs be unbound; in some cases of course, the Turian collar was visible, if work on the outside of the coat, usually under the furred collar; the men too, fee and slave were dressed similarly, save that the Kajiri, or he-slaves wore shackles, usually with a run of about a foot of chain."
Nomads of Gor, pg. 59~
Dress of slaves of the Wagon Peoples
"Among the Wagon Peoples, to be clad Kajir means, for a girl, to wear four articles, two red two black; a red cord, the Curla, is tied about the waist; the Chatka, or long , narrow strip of black leather, fits over the cord in front, passes under, and then again, from the inside, passes over the cord in back; the chatka is drawn tight; the Kalmack is then donned; it is a short sleeveless vest of black leather; lastly the koora, a strip of red cloth, matching the Curla, is wound about the head, to hold the hair back, for slave women, among the Wagon Peoples, are not permitted to braid, or otherwise dress their hair; it must be, save for the koora, worn loose. for a male slave or Kajirus, of the Wagon Peoples, and there are few, save for the work chains, to be clad Kajir means to wear the Kes, a short, sleeveless work tunic of black leather."
Nomads of Gor pg. 30~
"Among the Wagon Peoples, to be clad Kajira means, for a girl, to wear four articles, two red two black; a red cord, the Curla, is tied about the waist; the Chatka, or long , narrow strip of black leather, fits over the cord in front, passes under, and then again, from the inside, passes over the cord in back; the Chatka is drawn tight; the Kalmak is then donned; it is a short sleeveless vest of black leather; lastly the Koora, a strip of red cloth, matching the Curla, is wound about the head, to hold the hair back, for slave women, among the Wagon Peoples, are not permitted to braid, or otherwise dress their hair; it must be, save for the Koora, worn loose. For a male slave or Kajirus, of the Wagon Peoples, and there are few, save for the work chains, to be clad Kajir means to wear the Kes, a short, sleeveless work tunic of black leather. "As Kamchak and I walked to his wagon, I saw several girls, here and there, clad Kajir; they were magnificent; they walked with the true brazen insolence of the slave girl, the wench who knows that she is owned, whom men have found beautiful enough, and exciting enough, to collar. The dour women of the Wagon Peoples, I saw, looked on these girls with envy and hatred."
-- Nomads of Gor, pg 30
"both girls wore the Sirik, a light chain favored for female slaves by many Gorean masters; it consists of a Turian-type collar, a loose, rounded circle of steel, to which a light, gleaming chain is attached; should the girl stand, the chain, dangling from her collar, falls to the floor; it is about ten or twelve inches longer than is required to reach from her collar to her ankles; to this chain, at the natural fall of her wrists, is attached a pair of slave bracelets; at the end of the chain there is attached another device, a set of linked ankle rings, which, when closed about her ankles, lifts a portion of the slack chain from the floor; the Sirik is an incredibly graceful thing and designed to enhance the beauty of its wearer; perhaps it should only be added that the slave bracelets and ankle rings may be removed from the chain and used separately; this also, of course, permits the Sirik to function as a slave leash."
-- Nomads of Gor, pg. 42
"Elizabeth Cardwell took the meat in her two hands, confined before her by slave bracelets and the chain of the sirik, and bending her head, her hair falling forward, ate it. She, a slave, had accepted meat from the hand of Kamchak of the Tuchuks. She belonged to him now."
-- Nomads of Gor, pg. 54
"the Wagon Peoples enjoy being served by civilized slaves of great beauty and high station; during the day, in the heat and dust, such girls will care for the wagon bosk and gather fuel for the dung fires; at night they will please their masters."
-- Nomads of Gor, pg. 57
"The Turian camisk, on the other hand, if it were to be laid out on the floor, would appear somewhat like an inverted "T" in which the bar of the "T" would be beveled on each side. It is fastened with a single cord. The cord binds the garment on the girl at three points, behind the neck, behind the back, and in front at the waist. The garment itself, as might be supposed, fastens behind the girls neck, passes before her, passes between her legs and is then lifted and, folding the two sides of the T's bar about her hips, ties in front. The Turian camisk, unlike the common camisk, will cover a girl's brand; on the other hand, unlike the common camisk, it leaves the back uncovered and can be tied, and is, snugly, the better to disclose the girl's beauty."
-- Nomads of Gor, pg. 90
"Few it seemed to me, much objected to leaving the luxurious delights of the gardens for the freedom of the winds and prairies, the dust, the smell of bosk, the collar of a man who would master them utterly, but before whom they would stand as human shes, individual, each different, each alone and marvelous and prized in the secret world of her master's wagon."
-- Nomads of Gor, pg. 332
These Laws may sound very strict, however, that is the way of such a people. We are so scattered that we must have this in order to have order. I truly hope that this does not turn any away. It is my Hope that this will encourage those who have been seeking Honor and Courage above all things that they will seek it here.
this is a site that might prove interesting for all those who wish to use it.
