Dear Seg and Ash,
I have a better option than trying to compromise with the Sisterhood of the Traveling Collars and the Forest Fools guys. I suggest this post be deleted after you both have read it. We can lead by example with Ragnar and Donar's people for sure, maybe even Ty. I have been playing the diplomat for months, reaching out to Rags, Dondi and Ty the way I reached out to Seg - planning for what to do to revitalize Panther roleplay. My last big initiative was to give up on the Forest, to leave it to the Sisterhood (Seg was collared), and build something new in the Jungle. The roleplay of the move, the build, and the new life - it was epic. While Seg was in Tri-Moons, I was in 3SB. In 3SB, we fought men, and we won. That's why Donar crushed us, something he now regrets. Like Seg and Ty, I missed the Forest. So my next plan has been back to the Forest, for real and for good.
I want this to be an affirmative message, about what we can accomplish with Ragnar and Donar. I guarantee they are both on board with this, and Jonas is foaming at the mouth to get going. But first I want to address the negative reasons, why we don't need the Sisterhood and the Fools. When Seg went to them today, they revealed their true colors, when they took Seg for being with them. They are honorless liars and grudgeplayers. I guarantee you that they are more interested in splitting our alliance, than they are in doing anything you propose. I have all this scripted, if you don't believe me - but they are said things that we know are not true. The Fools said I dualled as Zosk. Seg, Rags and Dondi all knew both of us, and they know better. The Fools said they beat me in combat. Only one man ever beat me in judged combat: Haden beat Gisele. Nobody else ever has, ever. The Fools said I don't know the first thing about combat. But Trei said my last combat was “perfect, no errors.” He said that Ice's pet judge was not good enough to understand what I was doing. Ask Ragnar, he thinks I am one of the best fighters ever on Gor.
The Fools want weak Panthers. Nothing scares them more than actually being beaten by a woman. Nothing scares them more than more Panthers learning from me. The Fools said I haven't changed, and never will. You both know better, and the fact that the Fools don't believe Seg telling them I have changed, it proves they don't respect Seg. They don't respect women in general. Not as roleplayers, nor as typists. Their Gor is the Gor where the men are assholes, and the women love them because the men are such colossal assholes.
Why should we argue about whether to run from men or fight? What is wrong with the model of Rask and Verna in Captive, or Marlenus and Verna at the end of Hunters? Male allies who RESPECT the Panthers. There is no need to fight men like that. Again, I have earned the respect of Ragnar and his men, Donar, Jonas and Drax and the other men of Scagnar. Both of those homes respect the Storytellers' Guild NPC stuff, and treat Circe the Storyteller as a FW honored-guest, even though they know she is also a Panther. Who has better judgment? My male allies, or the Fools of Frozen Falls? ####inA, I can steal Cara and still count Torian as an ally. Could you steal a slave from Herzog and get anything but hatred, threats, violence and probably a good cluster####?
I have set up a gigantic roleplay where Ragnar buys Forest wood from Donar, in a deal brokered by the Storytellers' Guild. There are several ways for Panthers to participate in this, which I will detail in private, because we have options.
It has always been a choice between being real-Panthers and between being real-popular. The Sisterhood and the Fools represent popularity, a path that has failed for Panthers again and again. Donar and Ragnar, and me - that's the path back to Gor.
I needed another chance, and I am willing to give women from the sisterhood another chance. But on our terms. The Fools, no. We don't need them and are better off without them. If you decide to choose for the Fools and the Sisterhood, I'll still love you both, and when it don't work out, I'll still be your friend.
