Kennel Wagon Area
Though this is not a pass worded room it is a private room. Only slaves and members of the Tuchuk Council and those of Ubar’s wagon may enter without explicit permission from the Ubar.
It is a no kill/capture/collar/raid area for all but Ubar and Council. All decisions and rulings of this room fall under Ubar’s discretion.
This is a room for training and moments of privacy when needed to further one’s slavery. It is not a room for slaves to simply laze around in when they could be in the main camp interacting as is expected.
This is a kennel wagon of Tuchuk. A place for slaves wearing the collar of Tuchuk to find sleeping arrangements and training assistance. Slaves privately owned may also find accommodations here if for some reason they are commanded out of their Owner’s wagon. Privately owned slaves may also receive training assistance here. This is for the use of slaves and the Coordinators when some degree of privacy is needed and expected.
The wagon platform sits six feet off the ground on very large, heavy, multiple rear wheels and axles with two slightly smaller front wheels to assist in the maneuvering of the wagon when in motion. The wagon box sits on the platform looking much like a somewhat smaller version of the Ubar’s wagon construction including the multi colored domed top. The most obvious difference is the iron bars surrounding the box with an iron gate at the rear allowing access to the entry. The iron bars also extend beneath the domed bosk hide roof and under the wooden platform enclosing the box in a single large iron cage. This wagon, due to size and the additional weight of the iron bars is pulled by sixty bosk.
Iron rings extend from the side bars into the wagon box allowing slaves to be secured when necessary. The floor of the box is piled deep with rich hides covered by multi colored furs and pillows taken in raids and by the hunt and processing of our bosk. The only barren areas of the floor are where the firebowls are located to avoid burning the hides and furs. There are shuttered windows in the box which open inward so not to interfere with the iron bars. Along the walls the trunks of the slaves are placed, each trunk marking a slave’s place within the wagon. It is here where slaves sleep the furs are thickest for warmth and comfort.
There are no arrow slits in the wagon box. The wagon is under constant guard by two Or of hand picked Warriors and their sleen. The steps are removed for travel and placed upon the rear walkway (the porch). Along the left side walkway gear is stored for travel and along the right side is a small but suitable scaffolding to display slaves for sale or auction.
The thrall wagon is identical to the kajira wagon, both sitting on the same lot side by side though the thrall wagon is much less comfortable as nearly all thralls in Tuchuk are for hard labor or fighting thralls. The bars on the thrall wagon are much thicker and closer spaced.
Our kennel wagons have a bosk hide domed top as do our other wagons.
There are varieties of slave wagons on Gor.
A common type, used to transport female slaves, is covered with blue and yellow canvas.
A central metal bar, hinged at one end, near the wagon box, and locked at the other, near the wagon bed's gate, usually occurs in such wagons. The girls' ankles are then chained about this bar.
When the bar is freed and lifted they may then, still in their shackles, be removed through the rear of the wagon, the wagon gate being lowered. Another common type of wagon used generally in the transportation of women is the flat-bedded display wagon, with its mounted iron framework. The girls chained and manacled in various positions within and to its framework, sometimes compellingly attractive positions, are then visible.
Sometimes, buyers follow such wagons to the markets toward which they are bound. Sometimes, however, the girls are sold directly from such wagons, the wagons being in effect themselves trading markets. In such cases usually one side of the flat wagon bed is used as an auction platform, a small but suitable scaffolding on which may well displayed the lineaments of the girl's beauty, and on which may be exacted from her the provocative performances demanded by cruel and merciless vendors of their beautiful, degraded merchandise.
Another common type of slave wagon on Gor is the cage wagon which, depending on the stoutness of its bars and security, may be used for either men or women. The particular slave wagon in which I was fastened combined the features of the cage wagon and the common slave wagon. It was a converted tharlarion wagon, and, with bars and extra planking, was unusually stout, probably because its purpose was to transport fighting slaves.
It was a heavy wagon, with high sides and covered with a brown canvas. About the whole a cage had been built with heavy bars, which opened by means of a small door in the back. Within the wagon, in low-sided, heavy stalls, by means of rings at the front and back of the stall, and on the side of the stall near our necks, we were chained by the ankles, wrists and neck.
We had, thus, far less freedom of movement than is commonly afforded to females.
On the other hand this additional security was only to be expected. We were male slaves, and fighting slaves. I pulled against the chains. They held me well.
Gorean masters, for most practical purposes, simply do not lose slaves.
