The Ianda Times is to become the NEW VOICE OF GOR.

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

“There is a crowd ahead,” I said, “at the public boards.”
“They seem angry,” he said.
(Magicians of Gor)

The Ianda Times is to become the NEW VOICE OF GOR.

The reasons for this are the former VOICE OF GOR Is one of the oldest publications of second life Gor. Many Goreans have come to know it and its editor Verona Lorgsval.

Verona does not longer publish the Voice of Gor which was based in the city of Olni. Her mission statement for the paper was:

The Voice of Gor is a cross sim Gorean wide newspaper. It is designed to promote and increase Cross Sim Roleplay and communication. The Voice of Gor strives to ensure that all parties are contacted ahead of time; however, occasionally a city will object to what was written. Any city is free to write a rebuttal or send in their own news.

That same note will be used and the same conditions apply . This is especially important at the present time. By the book sims are closing and opening every day the voice of Gor will be just that a voice where people can contribute articles, and ideas how Gor can be improved for the people who play a role within the cities.

The NEW VOICE OF GOR is looking for correspondents all over Gor.

In a world of words, the quill is more powerful than the sword.

New Administration in Landa

Monday, September 3rd, 2012

The former administrator and ubar in times of war, sends kind regards and great thanks to all citizens who supported him during his long reign. However all good things come to an end and now he needs to concentrate on different things at the moment.

I want to say a big thank you to all the warriors who helped defeat the allied armies of our enemies during the times of war. Our caste achieved great things, although no one expected that. It is these deeds which bought honor to our homestone.

We have good people in town, and only a few things will change. I trust Sherman as new administrator fully, because he was administrator before I came to landa (April 2001 barbarian calendar).

I know if we all get behind him he will lead us to a powerful Landa.

Rarius Yuroki,
Head builder and head of the yellow caste of Landa,
editor of the Ianda Times,
former Admin and Ubar of Landa

As we announced already, Landa is going through some changes.

Yuroki has stepped down and is the Head Builder. Since he is a wonderful builder, we are pleased to have him in that role. He will also continue the Landa Times and the HoY bank.

Sherman has accepted his position as Admin once again and will be working hard to move Landa into a positive direction.

We will need your help as well. I hope our citizens who have not been here in quiet some time, may want to look in again.

Lady Dez

The Honorable Admin of Landa, Sir Yuroki, has stepped down and wishes to work as Head Builder of Landa. I have once again taken on the position of Admin on a temporary basis, until Council choses to vote it permanently.

Sherman Easterwood

I feel a few words of thanks are necessary.
I would like to thank Yuroki for his loyalty to Landa, for his time and for all the hard work he has put into the city.
He build most of the buildings. He build the tunnels, he also landscaped both sims. He created the news paper and the bank. All this, while recruiting and running a city. One will be hard pressed to find a man so devoted to the task before him.
Thank you Yuroki. We appreciated your hard work and we are happy you will remain with us.

Lady Dez

Announement of the green caste of Landa

Saturday, April 2nd, 2011

Welcome to the green caste of Landa, we are a growing City and soon to start accepting apprentices and teach classes here, i have a few rules i need read and i need you to sign and seal this form and send it back to me for your files. My thanks to you in advance for your attention to this matter. Remember we are a btb sim or as close as we can get, lets keep the use of medicines and herbs etc to those that we know are in the books and that we have quotes to back us up on, makes life easier for everyone.

Rules for Landa Infirmary, any new rules will be added as a revision and new forms sent out for signature and seal.

1. All treatments and exams must include the rolplay at the bottom of the exam, you can notecard it and attach it or just paste it to the bottom of the paperwork, this way if someone questions what happened i can read for myself and be able to defend actions of those players who may not be available when the concern is mentioned. I will fight for my caste members but this will help me in that fight and is expecially good for students to get used to doing it because it will be required in their paperwork for graduation from my teaching as well.

2. Please send me a copy of anything you do so if i get questioned i have it on me and can immediately address any issues no matter where i am when they arrise.

3. There is a file cabinet in my office to put copies of your paperwork as well iwill show each member how to use this, that way if someone is coming back for suture removal we know where it was done, how many we are taking out etc.

4. This office charges for all services except when the city is attacked, those services are donated and so are the supplies. a price list is available beside the scale on the wall and i can give you a written copy to carry in your folder (inventory) as well if you would like. if the person requests a bill as to the charges just write out a notecard with any salves poweders etc that were used, (this is also where including rp helps itemize the bills) and hand them a copy of the bill. the money goes to the physician that does the work. the city is working on a tax system as well so keeping good records will aid in this area.

5. If you need assistance of any type i have an open door policy, ims are OOC so if you do not agree with something im me, and i will give the same respect back that way the other rpr’s will not know there is a situaton at hand and it reduces drama.

6. I would like to hold meetings occasionally expecially as we get students to ensure we are all on the same page, find out if any issues that I need to address or help with, I am learning too, I learn every day, as i know all other physicians do. dont be afraid to ask questions, i welcome them!!

thanks for going over the rules. please sign, seal and send back to me for your files

Chief Physician
