We all know that Gor is a fictional place, based on a series of badly written books by John Norman. Though the books were not written very well, the concept became very appealing to a lot of people.
The Jewel, when founded, was based on Port Kar off of the Thassa. Port Kar is a very rough, and lowly place. However, on-line Gor is not the same as the books and cannot be followed directly with the books, but must deviate a bit to accommodate the real world and the real people as we know them to be.
So bear with the Jewel if it isn’t as rough and heartless as you think it should be, for you are dealing with real people behind those characters and real emotions that go with them. If you feel there is room for improvement that is doable, feel free to email the Council of the Jewel with your recommendations so that we can deliberate on how to make our Jewel accommodating for all.
