For once, let’s leave the classical beaten tracks of the cities of Gor, take away from the forests filled with panthers and head south, in the desert of Tahari.
Moreover, it is quite normal, in this summer period, to go south to the sun. So, I take my backpack and here I am on vacation, away from the rainforests, hoping to find warmth and sun, all coupled with wonderful landscapes.
For the heat, I found. For the sun, I was happy to have some shadows. For landscapes, seas of golden sand with some oases scattered everywhere. By cons, do not expect to have a sea of emerald. Water, you will not find it easily. You’ll have to beg for it by outdoing yourself in a play role. Here is the scenery set for the city of Kasra.
Kasra, I admit I did not know. But when arriving, what a shock! You decided that the build side was needed for your role play. You could not find better. All details are present. The shopping area, the shadows, the hangings, the mosaic, the minarets, the effects of light. It’s not a simple Gorean SIM, it’s a work of art. It only remains for us to kneel and recognize the effectiveness of the Build.
But now, Kasra does not stop at that. Kasra, these are perpetual stories, a role play continuously where everyone will find his place. This is the hallmark of this place. This is so true, that RP is proudly posted on the Kasra website, which I also advise you to visit. This site, like the SIM, is simply beautiful. We find all information about Kasra, photos, complete RP.
So, here is a summary of my holidays in the South, with stars in front of such beauty and memories forever engraved in my head. Kasra is like a holiday destination. It feels so good that we can not wait to be on vacation again to return.

Kasra – The backstory
Kasra Background How Jasmine died so that its citizens make live a city which is said to be blessed by the Priests Kings …! Kasra Taharan City
How could such a catastrophe be possible? How could this city of Jasmine once so prosperous, opulent in livestock, crops and where nothing could be missed, be struck by the irreversible pollution of the waters, devastating the cattle, rendering cultures unfit for consumption and thus starving the citizens when they wouldn’t die. Soon the decision, though painful, was taken. But how would one do otherwise? We had to leave but where? But we had to go to the obvious, the water that we put in our bowls, the one that was used to wash us, the one that filled the baths watered our crops, watered our animals; we were not even aware of its importance … not even aware how vital it was to us. We used it without the respect that was due to him, without wishing it to anyone who greeted us. Aboard frail boats, along the Vosk, we sailed, defying rocks, attacks, violent currents. We made a stop in the plains of Eeocles. Very quickly, while interminable discussions under the three moons were fired, each one emitted the idea of a possible destination, that of a place where the water was sacred and respected imposed: the Tahari .. This land where we wanted water to those we crossed. Some saw it there, a joke, thinking that our origins were not Tharan and why choose a place where water was scarce when we had missed it. Then wise voices arose … “precisely,” they said, “we must venerate this precious water, wish it to everyone … to realize that without it, no life!” And they all agreed to this idea. ..to reach these distant lands of Tahari. Abandoning the plains, the caravan stretching to infinity like a long multicolored ribbon, riding on the back of kaiila, we lost many of ours on this journey to finally arrive at the gates of a city shining with a thousand lights … Kasra !! As she rose majestic, seeming to dominate and tame these lands that were thought inhospitable!
By crossing its doors, very quickly, we understood that this city was going to reserve us many surprises! Thieves were commonplace. Rich merchants, dressed in their white and gold robes, entered these places in incessant comings and goings, haranguing the crowd, pressing themselves on the spot when the weather permitted; groups of mercenaries, whose purses filled with their missions, crowded at the entrance to the taverns where beautiful slaves wiggled at the sound of the bells surrounding their ankles. Caravans raising the sand in thick clouds connecting the distant cities to Kasra accompanied by vigorous kaiilas escorting them, could be seen far from the top of the ramparts encircling the City; High Castes, Basses Castes, were finally mixed when, leaving their homes where they took refuge when the heat did not allow to go out, they could finally take advantage of the bustle of the City. Everything made this one lively and pleasant to live. It was in these places that we put down our meager luggage, exhausted by a trying journey regretting those who had lost their lives while trying to accompany us. But the hope of a better life animated us and everyone knows that without hope, no point of life possible. What did the future hold for us? The story will certainly say …
Kasra: is a river port on Lower Fayeen. It is downstream from Kurtzal and west of Tor. She is famous on Gor for her red salt production. Salt is introduced into secret pits and mines into heavy bottles on the backs of kaiilas. Tahari is more beautiful at night. During the day, we can hardly see it, because of heat and reflections of lights. During the day, it seems threatening, whitish, shining with heat, blinding, burning; men must harm their eyes; some will become blind; women and children stay in tents; but, with the arrival of the evening, with the departure of the sun, there is a softening, an influx, of this vast and difficult rocky ground. It is at this time that Hassan, the bandit, will make his camps. As the sun sank, the hills, the dust and the sky would become red in a hundred shades and, as the light disappeared, these reds would gradually turn into a thousand shiny gold tones that, with the Final fading from there light to the west, giving way to a bright world, then dark, blues and pimples. Then, it suddenly seems, the sky is black, wide and lofty and is rich with sands reflecting the stars, like clear, shining diamonds that burn in the sweet silence of the innocent tranquility of the desert. “(Tribesman of Gor p.169-70) A warm wind blows almost constantly in the Tahari, but this wind makes the desert bearable. The wind usually blows from the north or north-west, which causes few problems. But in the spring, if the wind moves east, or in the fall, if the wind moves westward, there may be problems, resulting in terrible sandstorms. Water is very scarce in this region and there are places where it has not rained for hundreds of years. the primary sources of water are scattered oases, fed by underground rivers, tributaries that flow south-east of the Voltai Mountains. Some communities have also dug deep wells, some of which extend 200 feet over the land, to reach a water source. Kasra is run by a General Council, composed by the High Castes and the Caste of the Merchants. * This story is told by Norman in * The Tribes of Gor *

kasra – The interview
Valou: Good evening
Lola: Good evening too
Valou: We will attack the interview
Valou: This is an interview Out of Character
Lola: I’m ready!
Valou: First, can you introduce yourself, in a gorean way, historic in Gor, experience
Lola: Yes, I’m Lola, Scribe for years. I took classes, I learned, and I’m Gorean! I respect the laws, and I try to enforce them. I traveled, a lot. Land was drowned, we started to work and rebuild each time. And finally, from the penultimate stage that was Nyoka, we arrived at Kasra.
Valou: Kasra, let’s talk about it, the sim is superb, who built, who thought of all these details
Lola: The sim was built in two stages. The first time, she did not look like she became, or almost not. Some original buildings are still there and I like them, so I keep them. The constructor was named Ian. He left and I changed things. Gardens for example, streets, pavers, style more * Tahari * in details.
Valou: Tahari, can you explain to the readers what Tahari is?
Lola: The Tahari, a large area of Gor, located in the south of course. Cities are few in number, but there are beautiful ones like Tor, for example, and of course Kasra. The desert is the kingdom of the Nomads, various tribes but the cities function like all the cities of the Goreens. We preserve the water, we are attentive to the wells, despite our rivers, here in Kasra. The people are a proud and happy people because the sun and the heat make them happy
Valou: let’s get back to the subject, who says quoted … like Tor, often says BTB, Are you BTB or Ge
Lola: We are I would say, BTB, but by becoming aware that we are playing! That we are not in * real life *. We respect the books, we are strict but we forgive the dresses that are not typically tahari dresses. Because on the one hand, we are exiles, but also because …. on sl, I think things are so beautiful, the clothes that cover in black and * Haik * for women would frustrate us
Valou: I saw that you chose the ZCS meter which is more combat oriented compared to the classic GM, why this choice
Lola: I do not know if it’s more combat-oriented actually, it suits me because precisely, we can put the mention * RP * and not fight. I find it playful, modern, lighter than GM
Valou: Let’s talk RP, I saw on the website that you do a lot of RP, and in addition, you keep them. Do you have this desire to prioritize PR mode in priority
Lola: And I add ….. that we favor RP in combat … well, we do not have many warriors. Men must prefer to fight I guess. But here we have some excellent players
Lola: oh well here it is))
Valou: ((Leave me the time to ask the question))
Lola: just the right answer to your question))
Lola: that we create excellent rp which sometimes, unfortunately, end badly because … it is sometimes difficult to assume Rps … complicated which ends with a necklace …. or a pal or a death!
Valou: Anyway, given the beauty of the SIM, doing RP here has to be a pleasure. We let ourselves be embarked on our dreams. When the fights in final, it is necessary that the bestial male side comes back from time to time
Valou: Why our readers should come to see you
Lola: Yes, that’s it! But some men also prefer Rps to fights and raids without … valid reasons. A good war, well built, that’s what I dream! And they must come because we will give them play! Whatever they choose as long as it is … consistent! Game and a game setting!
Valou: Our readers are mostly Anglo and speak English, do you accept this?
Lola: We accept, but with a translator
Lola: I would say that ….. I love Gor so much that I would like everyone to play with the same conviction! That this hard and cruel world sometimes is the one that can still give us a little adrenaline …… if that’s what we’re looking for!
Valou: So, if you love Gor, and you talk about it with your heart, you’ll find followers who will follow you
