Ubar’s letter to Landa’s Citizens

Saturday, April 28th, 2012

Citizens of Landa:

Your Ubar has been working hard to protect Landa and find a solution to the current war. A solution was offered to Fina but both Fina and the Southern Trade Alliance has refused to accept any of the 3 proposals of your Ubar. In addition they tried, in typical Southern Trade Alliance fashion, to tell Landa who and who not they could declare war on. Landa is a sovereign city and will defend herself as she see fit. We will not allow those that attack us to hide behind the farce of the Southern Trade Alliance.

The actions of the Southern Trade Alliance, are not of a trade organization. Landa will not withdraw the Declaration of War upon the STA, but will continue to devote all it’s resources to ensure an end to this conflict that is beneficial to Landa.

Let’s review what has brought us to this point:

– Turia, a member of the Southern Trade Alliance and with it’s full support, declared war on Landa for no reason some months ago [October 2010]

– Fina voted Landa out of the Southern Trade Alliance

– Port Meqara voted Landa out of the Southern Trade Alliance

– Port Meqara was allied of Landa and betrayed us and did not follow the code of the warriors. The 97th Aphorism in the Codes of the scarlet caste: “What is invisible but more beautiful than diamonds?” – “Honor”. To betray allies means to show no honor at all.

– Fina has declined all proposals of Landa to stop the hostilities.

– Fina, Port Meqara, Turia, Thentis, Midas and Sulport attacked Landa without having declared war – but they failed.


Now, in another act of dishonor, The Southern Trade Alliance has voted to not recognize the Declaration of War from Landa.

That is their choice. It shows them for who they truly are. They would rather lay in their furs and fur their slaves, while Landa continues to defend itself.

In summary Landa will continue to defend itself, the city and our citizens. Landa will not bow to threats, from 1 or multiple cites. As your Ubar, I promise you, that your city will act with honor during this conflict.

In a genous and honoroble act, the Ubar has decided to honor a cease fire with Fina for now.

Yuroki Uriza
Ubar of the honorable and honest City of Landa !

Warriors of Landa love to fight, traditionally. All real Landanians love the sting and clash of battle. You are here for three reasons. First, because you are here to defend your homestone. Second, you are here for your own self respect and honor, because you would not want to be anywhere else. Third, you are here because you are real gorean men and all real men like to fight. Landa will not tolerate a loser. Landa despise cowards. Landa play to win all of the time. I do not give a bosk shit for a man who prefers to fur slaves instead to defend his homestone. That’s why Landa have never lost nor will ever lose a war; for the very idea of losing is hateful to a Landanian.

You are not all going to die. Death must not be feared. Death, in time, comes to all men. Yes, every man is scared in his first battle. If he says he’s not, he’s a liar. Some men are cowards but they fight the same as the brave men or they get the hell slammed out of them watching men fight who are just as scared as they are. The real hero is the man who fights even though he is scared. Some men get over their fright in an ehn under fire. For some, it takes an ahn. For some, it takes days. But a real man will never let his fear of death overpower his honor, his sense of duty to his homestone, and his innate manhood. Battle is the most magnificent competition in which a man being can indulge. It brings out all that is best and it removes all that is base. Landanians pride themselves on being He Men and they ARE He Men. Remember that the enemy is just as frightened as you are, and probably more so. They are not supermen.

Alertness must be bred into every member of the red caste. I don’t give a fuck for a man who’s not always on his toes. You are ready for what’s to come. A man must be alert at all times if he expects to stay alive. If you’re not alert, sometime, an outlaw of Port Meqara or one of the sleens of Fina is going to sneak up behind you and beat you to death with a sockful of bosk shit!

An army is a team. It lives, sleeps, eats, and fights as a team. This individual heroic stuff is pure Kaiila shit.

We have the finest food, the finest equipment, the best spirit, and the best men in Gor. My men don’t surrender. I don’t want to hear of any warrior under my command being captured unless he has been hit. Even if you are hit, you can still fight back. That’s not just bosk shit either. The kind of man that I want in my command is just like the lieutenant, who, with a blade against his chest, jerked off his helmet, swept the sword aside with one hand, and busted the hell out of the enemy with his helmet. Then he jumped on the shield and went out and killed another enemy before they knew what the hell was coming off. And, all of that time, this man had an arrow through a lung. There was a real man.

Each man must not think only of himself, but also of his buddy fighting beside him. We don’t want yellow cowards in this army. They should be killed off like urts. If not, they will go home after this war and breed more cowards. The brave men will breed more brave men. Kill off the damned cowards and we will have a homestone of brave men.

Don’t forget, you men don’t know that I’m here. No mention of that fact is to be made in any letters. The world is not supposed to know what the hell happened to me. I’m not supposed to be commanding this army. Some day I want to see them raise up on their piss-soaked hind legs and howl, “Priest Kings, it’s the damned Landa army again and that son-of-a-fucking-slave Yuroki.”

Sure, we want to go home. We want this war over with. The quickest way to get it over with is to go get the bastards who started it. The quicker they are whipped, the quicker we can go home.

When a man is lying in a shell hole, if he just stays there all day, an enemy will get to him eventually. The hell with that idea. The hell with taking it. My men don’t dig holes. I don’t want them to. Keep moving. And don’t give the enemy time to dig one either. We’ll win this war, but we’ll win it only by fighting and by showing the enemies that we’ve got more guts than they have; or ever will have. We’re not going to just shoot the sons-of-slaves, we’re going to rip out their living damned guts and use them to grease the sheats of our blades. War is a bloody, killing business. You’ve got to spill their blood, or they will spill yours. Rip them up the belly. When shells are hitting all around you and you wipe the dirt off your face and realize that instead of dirt it’s the blood and guts of what once was your best friend beside you, you’ll know what to do!

I don’t want to get any messages saying, “I am holding my position.” We are not holding a damned thing. Let the enemies do that. We are advancing constantly and we are not interested in holding onto anything, except the enemy’s balls. We are going to twist his balls and kick the living shit out of him all of the time. Our basic plan of operation is to advance and to keep on advancing regardless of whether we have to go over, under, or through the enemy. We are going to go through him like crap through a goose; like shit through a tin horn!

From time to time there will be some complaints that we are pushing our people too hard. I don’t give a good damn about such complaints. I believe in the old and sound rule that an ounce of sweat will save a gallon of blood. The harder WE push, the more enemies we will kill. The more enemies we kill, the fewer of our men will be killed. Pushing means fewer casualties. I want you all to remember that.

There is one great thing that you men will all be able to say after this war is over and you are home once again. You may be thankful that twenty years from now when you are sitting by the fireplace with your grandson on your knee and he asks you what you did in the great war, you WON’T have to cough, shift him to the other knee and say, “Well, your Granddaddy furred slaves in Landa.” No, Sir, you can look him straight in the eye and say, “Son, your Granddaddy rode with the Great Landa Army and a Son-of-a-damned-slave named Rarius Yuroki.”

The Great Battle of Landa

battle of landabattle of landa

As I was sorting through the scrolls which threatened to crash my desk, I heard the alarm ring. I stopped and walked to the balcony to see what was happening.. Dark clouds hovered over the dock and upon closer inspections I saw as warriors arrived from not only one but several cities.. I remember seeing Meqara, Thentis, Fina, and Sulport. I squinted my eyes and I believe I saw midas as well, but I could be mistaken.

It did not look at all like a friendly visit, and I feared our Warriors would be badly outnumbered.

I saw grapples being thrown over the walls and the enemies tried to breech the wall. For an ahn Landa’s Warriors were able to keep the enemy out of the city, but eventually the wall was breeched and they got inside. Some of Landa’s fierce fighters left the wall and engaged in hand to hand combat.

I watched in horror as the fighting continued. I knew our men are strong and fierce fighters, but I worried that they might not be able to withstand so many and hold them at bay.

The battled continued for two ahns, but contrary to my fears, Landa stood strong. Many attackers lay bound in the streets of Landa. I stood and watched as it drew to an end. In a show of good faith Landa released it’s prisoners and allowed them to return to their city.

Everyone was proud of the way the men defended Landa. After the fighting was over the Free Women ran into the street yelling with joy, as they celebrated the men’s successful defense of Landa.

Court Verdict

Wednesday, April 4th, 2012


[15:33] Sherman Easterwood enters the Courtroom and sits behind the bench. Bangs the gavel down hard 3 times and starts to speak in a loud clear voice “This Court of Landa will come to order. We will now continue with Case #04022012 Landa vs Sir Arris Vesuvino. Several people stood and said things in support of the defendent yesterday. After court yesterday I was handed a scroll by Lady Guls in support of the defendant. If there are those present that have not spoken in support of Sir Arris but now wish to, I will allow them to now.” Looks out on the crowd to see if anyone wishes to speak.”
[15:35] Dezire Sciarri looks around in the crowd to see if anyone has something to say
[15:37] Sherman Easterwood ask a final time “Does anyone wish to say anything in support of the final time.”
[15:37] Sherman Easterwood takes a breath and continues “Sir Arris Vesuvino please stand as your verdict is read.”
[15:38] Arris Vesuvino: slpowly rises
[15:38] Sherman Easterwood looks at the man and starts to speak clearly
[15:38] Sherman Easterwood: Sir Arris Vesuvino is accused of Face Stripping of a Free Woman, Forced Collaring of a Free Woman and Assault.
[15:38] Sherman Easterwood: 1) On the charge of Assault I find Sir Arris not guilty. There is circumstantial evidence present that the Lady was assaulted. However, there is no direct evidence and therefore the charge cannot be proven.
[15:39] Sherman Easterwood: 2) On the charges of Face Stripping of a Free Woman and Forced Collaring of a Free Woman, Sir Arris Vesuvino admitted to me in an interview and here on the stand that he did, in essence, both face strip and force collar a Free Woman. I therefore find Sir Arris guilty of both charges. The Laws of Landa, which includes all of Landa Continent not just what happens within the walls of the city, prevail over any other law on the Continent of Landa. The Laws of Landa clearly state:
[15:40] Sherman Easterwood: 1) No woman of Landa may be force collared within the city walls without the order of a Magistrate. Within the city walls encompass all of Landa Continent. There was no such order requested or given in this matter. If anyone thinks a woman should be collared the woman should be detained and then the matter brought up to the Praetor/Magistrate to decide what to do.
[15:40] Sherman Easterwood: 2) Within the city walls, a Free Woman shall not be forcibly face stripped without the order of a Magistrate. Those found guilty of such a crime shall be subject to fines and imprisonment. Within the city walls encompass all of Landa Continent. There was no such order requested or given in this matter. If anyone thinks a woman should be face stripped the woman should be detained and then the matter brought up to the Praetor/Magistrate to decide what to do.
[15:40] gerbilwatcher Xue: holds her breath ,,,
[15:41] Sherman Easterwood: With the above said All Ladies should remember this. Free women in Landa are expected to conduct themselves with a level of decorum in public, worthy of their position as Free Women. There is a law in Landa that clearly states “Free Women may not enter a Tavern or Brothel. Those will be punished according to the Law of Landa. The exception is in case of emergency, a Physician may to in to treat a patient until they can be moved to the Infirmary.” Being in a tavern is something that will quickly lead you to a collar. I will not hesitate to sign an order giving permission for your collaring and face stripping, if you are found guilty of a crime. Being in a tavern is something that could quickly lead you to a collar.
[15:42] Sherman Easterwood pauses and lets what he has said sink in before continuing
[15:42] Arris Vesuvino: i have a question if i may
[15:42] Sherman Easterwood: “No Sir you may not at this time.”
[15:42] Arris Vesuvino: nods
[15:43] Sherman Easterwood continues
[15:43] Sherman Easterwood: I will now pass sentence on Sir Arris Vesuvino. There were many who spoke of the good character of Sir Arris Vesuvino. I have taken into consideration these statements of support in my sentence. I publicly admonish Sir Arris Vesuvino for not knowing the Laws of Landa, as they pertain to his actions. I have been told he is an excellent slaver and provides high quality slaves. He is directed to arrange a time to come to my office so we can discuss the the Laws of Landa as they pertain to his Caste of Slaver.
[15:43] Sherman Easterwood: “This completes the verdict in this case.”
[15:44] Dezire Sciarri breathes again
[15:44] Sherman Easterwood bangs the gavel 3 times “This court is adjourned.” stands and walks back to his office.
[15:44] Arris Vesuvino: i thank the court in its fair judgment in this case
