Slave Rules

by Aramock Nanuck

      November 2011

In general, it is expected that failures to comply results inevitably in:

  • Embarrassing its Master

  • Elevating the other to a higher stature

  • Humiliating yourself

  • Lowering the value placed on the slave by its Master

  • The issuance of varying degrees of punishment.

General Deportment



Any Free-person is to be addressed as either "Sir" or "Mam." If unable to determine a Free-Person's gender from their name, "Your Honour" is used. if they are a known dominant, then "Master" or "Mistress." If the gender is not known, "Khalif" is to be used. If the person is a submissive (especially if oneself), they should be referred to in the third person. A new slave tends to universally be referred to as a "novice," while experienced slaves of the various subcultures are referred to as:

  • Gorean

    • kaijra, 

  • Roman/Egyptian

    • servia,

  • Chinese

    • nu li,

  • Generic

    • property or it.



Serve every dominant as if your well-being depends on being pleasing.



While a Free person may not always be right, they are, by definition, never WRONG. Slaves always have the last word in any disagreement..the words "Yes, Master/Mistress" (or in the case of the house leader "Yes Dominus")... or "Your wish is my honour to fulfill."



Jealousy and Possessiveness have been the cause of more slaves being exiled or dismissed than disobedience.  Besides the nominal expectations, one also raises the assessment of the individual reacted against as more worthy.



Slaves do not use the first-person pronoun. There is no "I," "me," or "mine" in a slave's vocabulary. If asked their name, they will respond, "this object is known as... {whatever name their owner has bestowed on them}."



The perfection of Service and Submission is the goal, and mere excellence will be tolerated.



Your collar is an honour bestowed upon you by your dominant. If Gorean, its colours bare deep significance. If Pharaonic, it bears the rank and title to all who know your house. Otherwise, it is a gift from your dominant and should be worn proudly, displayed in all appropriate settings.  Your attitude can make it as light as a feather or as heavy as a mountain.



If there are none requiring service, use the time to clean, practice serving techniques, fulfill the task to improve yourself and options or learn about the lifestyle. At the least appear as an adornment to beautify the place within which you are present. Do not be idle; otherwise, it will inevitably result in humiliation and varying degrees of punishment.



A slave can possess nothing not given to them by their dominant, including their name. What is given can be taken away. If you are entrusted to carry a name for an owner, or silks or jewelry, remember that these can be removed as easily as they were given.



The merest whim of Dominar is your highest obligation.
