Message  Jéricho le Ven 1 Mai - 1:18


Je fais de nombreuses recherches ces temps ci, sur le monde Goréen et j'ai le plaisir d'avoir découvert votre forum.

J'ai lu sur celui ci une anotation sur les peuples des Chariots.

Mais j'ai un mal fou a trouver des informations les concernants.

Pourriez vous m'en dire plus svp ?

D'avance merci.

Je te conseil de lire le livre de John Norman, "Les Nomades de Gor".

Le peuple des chariots vie dans les plaines de Turia et ils sont composés de 4 tributs "les paravacis, les kassars, les kataiis et les tuchuks".
C'est un peuple nomade, on pourrait les comparés au mongol, ils vivent pratiquement sur leurs montures les kaiilas.
Comme arme ils ont à leurs disposition la lance, la bolas et leur arc court.
Il pousse un enorme troupeau de Bosk devant eux, c'est terrible de voir des milliers de bêtes dans un nuage de poussière qui arrivent sur toi, c'est un bon moyen de défense aussi, les chariots suivent avec les femmes, les enfants et les esclaves.
Tous le monde marche à pied et les guerriers sur leurs kaiilas sont là pour surveiller qu'il n'y a pas de dangers pour leurs peuples.
Les kajirae portent un belle anneau dans le nez et ils ont la marque du peuple des chariots souvent des femmes libres capturer pendant les attaquent contre les cités.

Il y a 410 pages au livre de poche, je te conseil de l'acheter en occasion.

This essay is taken from the Education Scrolls of Luther, noted Gorean Philosopher and Scholar. They are included in the Librarium of The Gorean Academy with his permission and should be not reprinted in any form without his permission. The scrolls may be found at http://www.geocities.com/delphius2002/
There are several cultures on Gor outside of the cities. These include the Red Savages of the Barrens, the tribesmen of the Tahari, the natives of the jungles near Schendi and others. These cultures are considered by the Goreans of the citys to be barbarians. The focus of this scroll shall be one of those allegedly barbaric cultures, the Wagon Peoples. The Wagon Peoples share a number of characteristics with the Mongols of Earth.

The Wagon Peoples claim the southern prairies near the city of Turia in the southern hemisphere. These prairies extend from the coast of Thassa to the southern foothills of the Voltai Range. The Wagon People also claim the lands to the north, up to the banks of the Cartius River, a tributary of the Vosk River. These prairie lands may be called the Plains of Turia or the Land of the Wagon Peoples, depending on who is speaking. The great city of Turia sits in the midst of these lands and must continually deal with the threat of the Wagon Peoples. The Wagon Peoples consist of four separate tribes: the Paravaci, Kataii, Kassars and Tuchuks.

The Paravaci are the "Rich People", the wealthiest of the tribes. During the time of Nomads of Gor, their Ubar was Tolnus. But, he betrayed the Wagon Peoples and was later killed. It is unknown who is the current Ubar of the Paravaci. Their standard is a boskhead-shaped banner made of jewels strung on gold wire. The Paravaci sometimes wear jeweled belts on their necks to incite envy in others and accrue enemies. The purpose is to encourage attacks so the wearer can test his skills and need not tire himself seeking foes. Their brand is an inverted isosceles triangle surmounted by a semicircle, representing the head of a bosk. Like all of the Peoples, they use the same brand for their slaves and bosk. A slave brand though is only about an inch high and a bosk brand forms a six-inch square.

The Kataii are blacks and their Ubar is Hakimba. Their standard is a yellow bow bound across a black lance. They also carry yellow shields. Their brand is a bow facing to the left.

The Kassars are the "Blood People" and their Ubar is Conrad. Their standard is a scarlet bola hanging from a lance. Their brands symbolically represen this with three circles joined at the center by lines. They also carry red shields.

The Tuchuks are known as the "Wily Ones" and their Ubar is Kamchak. The Tuchuks are the primary tribe discussed in Nomads of Gor. Their standard is four bosk horns. They also carry black shields. Their brand is four bosk horns, resembling the letter "H." It is said that it is hard to outwit a Tuchuk in a bargain. They hate to be fooled or made the butt of a joke.

The Peoples are primarily herders of bosk, living off their meat and milk. They will not grow any food and will not eat anything of the earth. They have no manufacturing and thus must often either buy, trade or raid for what they need. They trade with Turia, usually acquiring highly prized metal and cloth items for bosk horn and hides. They also trade items they obtain from raiding. The only two things they won't trade to Turia are a living bosk and a girl who once came from Turia. As no caravans, and few merchants, travel to the Wagon Peoples, they must often journey to Turia to seek needed goods.

They speak a dialect of Gorean so can be understood by most city dwellers. They are very proud and generally regard city dwellers as vermin living in holes. It is said the Wagon People are killers and that they slay strangers. This is mostly true. A few merchants are permitted to trade with them but for that priviliege they must receive a tiny brand on their forearm. The brand is in the form of spreading bosk horns. This guarantees safe passage for the merchant but only during certain seasons. Some entertainers can also receive the brand. But, to acquire the brand, you must first present yourself to the Peoples. If they do not like your merchandise or are not pleased with your entertaining, they will deny you a brand and simply slay you. The brand does carries some shame as it suggests that you are a slave.

They do not have normal castes like most Goreans. Every male is expected to be a warrior though there is no Red Caste among the Peoples. This is true of most of the barbaric cultures of Gor. All males must also be able to ride, hunt, and care for the bosk. After the primary duties of war, hunting and herding, there are certain clans that specialize in other duties. These clans include healers, torturers, leather workers, salt hunters, camp singers, year keepers, scarers, and more. These clans are still warriors but also have added duties.

They are the only Gorean culture to have a group of professional torturers. The torturers are very well trained in the arts of detaining life, detection and persuasion. They can be effective interrogators. They always wears hoods unless their victim has received a sentence of death. Only the victim will then see their face. They hire out to other cities, mainly to Ubars and Initiates, and a few others similarly interested in their skills.

The Wagon People do not trust important matters to paper because paper can be too easily destroyed. Most of the People have excellent memories and have been trained since birth for such retention. Because of this, few can actually read. Many of them use signs to signify their names and they also place them on the collars of their slaves. They do have a large, complex oral literature. This is passed down through the generations by word of mouth and memorized anew by each new generation. These works may be recited by the clan of Camp Singers, also known as skalds.

The Peoples use two different systems to mark time. The free women keep a calendar based on the phases of Gor's largest moon. It lists fifteen moons, named for the fifteen varieties of bosk. This calendar functions independently of their other calendar that tallies years between each Season of Snows. Their years are not numbered but are instead given names. They are named toward their end, based on something that happened to distinguish that year. Year Keepers are the clan that memorizes the names of the years and some can recite several thousand consecutive years.

The bosk is said to be the Mother of the Wagon Peoples and they revere it. The bosk is a huge, ox-like animal, with a temper to match that of a sleen. It is a shaggy beast with a thick, humped neck. It has a wide head and tiny red eyes. It possesses two long, wicked horns that reach out from its head and suddenly curve forward to terminate in fearful points. Some of these horns, measured from tip to tip, exceed the length of two spears. There are fifteen varieties of bosk including the brown bosk, red bosk, and milk bosk. It is indigenous to the plains near Turia though it is also raised by people all over Gor.

The bosk herds form the vanguard and rampart for the advance of the wagons. The herds are branded and composed of smaller herds watched over by their own riders. The Peoples use basically every part of the bosk. They eat its meat and drink its milk. They use their hides to cover their wagons. Their tanned skins also are used for clothing. The leather of its hump is used for their shields. Their sinews form their thread. Their bones and horn are made into many different implements such as awls, punches, spoons, drinking flagons, and weapon tips. The hooves are used for glues including a waterproof glue. Their oils are used to grease the bodies of the Peoples against the cold. Even their dung is used, dried, for fuel. Someone who kills a bosk foolishly is either strangled to death or suffocated in the hide of the animal he killed. If you kill a bosk cow with unborn young, then you are staked out alive in the path of the h
