We take a brief look at gorean meter (gm) goods. The gorean meter (gm) often comes as an object you have to Rez in order to get the actual content folder. Try a dispenser or even go to her actual store for it. http://gm.mivabe.nl/ that should be the website. First we look at some trading roleplays, yes i have done quite a few , just an excuse to travel around SL Gor and not get accused of spying…….Marli blinks innocently…..
GM goods and items:
Most will think GM (gorean Meter) stands for the combat system , but there are also trap items , a trade system and crafting system built around it. You can visit their website on: http://gm.mivabe.nl/regions/index.php
The HUD interface in Secondlife Gor:
Every newcomer will need a GM meter , almost every Gorean Second Life sim has a dispenser near the entry. Usually in the shopping area or near a dock. You need your avatar to wear this meter in order to take part in combat and in trade. Most experienced players are happy to help a newcomer set up the meter and explain the basics.
GM Crafting Manual :
You can get a crafting hud in Gimli. The upper row of the hud shows the same 10 inventory slots as you have in your GM Combat meter. The second line shows the crafts that you can craft for your given skill and level. You can click either a item slot or a craft slot and click info to either see what item it is or if it is a craft then you can see what ingredients are needed.
Each avatar can train one skill. If changing skill type then you start again from Level 1. (You can change skill type by clicking the skill label).
Raw materials can be produced by your GM RP Server, those then are used to craft more complex items. Any skill type can make any of the raw materials though with restrictions of on what level you are on.
Note that often to craft you need to trade or do teamwork with person that have other skills since the ingredients you need might need to be crafted with someone who has different skill than you have.
Marli wakes up, she had leant against the tree she had been sleeping on, the second spear she had made next to her. She rubs her eyes and looks around, mumbling ‘strangers’ to her private slave. A panther seeks parly with Mane…….
[15:29] Monica cups her hands around her mouth and shouts to the luna camp. “I am here seeking Marli!!! Mane told me she would honor our deal!”
[15:29] Marli : what is that about mine?
[15:30] ʂհἶ : No idea
[15:30] Monica “She promised me a bow, a quiver of arrows, and a jar of honey”
[15:33] Monica looks over the woman that slid down the rope. She fight the description given to her. “You are Marli, no?”
[15:33] Monica : *fit
[15:33] Marli placed her hands on her hips , she looked the woman over “I am Marli”
[15:34] Monica : “Your panther…Mane. She promised me a bow, quiver and jar of honey. She said her En would give it to me. Then she ran off” shrugs.
[15:35] Marli arches an eyebrow “and why would Mane offer you such goods? what do you offer in return?”
[15:36] Monica nibbles her lip. She hadn’t thought this far ahead. “Well I told her I was a lady of ar and promised her voyage there in the future.” Her eyes rolled around looking up while thinking further on this. She would judge how well you were taking her lies before proceeding to tell more of the story.
[15:39] Marli grinned , her white teeth clearly visible as she watched the woman closely, she was gauging her ” i see , you are a lady of Ar dressed as a panther?” she though this rather amusing “and what would a lady of Ar do with a bow? unless you mean a bow for your hair….which my slaves will provide you”
[15:42] Monica saw the smile, but knew it meant one of two things. This was totally working or she was totally onto me. She realized quickly it was the later. “Well I dress as the natives do when I travel you see. Don’t mind my dress…” nibbling upon her lip as she fixed the position of the bow on her back. “And the bow. The scarlet of Ar often train women in the matters of weapons, it is just not a well known fact is all.” nodding her head yes quickly. “yes yes…anyway. I can see I should talk to my friend Mane about all of this and leave you to your En business. ”
[15:43] Marli narrowed her eyes , then gave her a brief nod “that would be wise”
[15:44] Monica smiles and skips off. Speaking like a true free woman of gor. “My blessings with you and your tribe
Marli travels to Hrimgar, meets up with her ex Sa Sang Hrimgar sister Caleigh. A male enters the lands and seeks trade…..
[07:31] Caliegh: Tal Marli *smiles* is that your male over there?
[07:31] Marli: Tal Cali
[07:32] Marli: mhm
[07:32] Caliegh snickers “well, your boy appears to be armed”
[07:32] Marli looks over at the male thats been pointed at “No, feel free to ko-lar him”
[07:32] Caliegh : Tal Male.. does your momma know you’re playing with bows in the forest?
[07:33] Efuturist : Sheathes his bow as he approaches
[07:33] Marli chuckles at the delicious cali wit
[07:33] Efuturist : “Tal Little ones. Indeed I ahev informed my Mother of this…”
[07:34] Caliegh snorts “awwww.. how cute.. a Momma’s boy… what brings you this far into the woods you big brute?”
[07:34] Efuturist : Tosses his sack of furs on the ground.
[07:34] Marli looks down at her own breast and then at Cali , mutters “little ones ? hardly”
[07:35] Efuturist: “Been hunting these fine woods, the pry is plentiful Indeed..” look them over suspiciously…
[07:35] Caliegh looks down at the sack of furs.. some of them spilling out as they land on the deck “Poaching?” she chuckles, not recognizing the furs.. but knows they are not from these lands “or did you just come to toss your furs around?”
[07:37] Efuturist : Eyes them his arms now free for action, “I was just offering for trade, are you perhaps in the market?”
[07:39] Caliegh shrugs looking down at them “i have plenty myself.. unless Marli is in the market for some.. your best chance to sell items is where they are not common.. we have an abundant amount of furs in the forest.. now.. in a city.. well.. the animals are not there, thus furs are more in demand.. you can toss me a tarsk or two for the free economic advice *smiles
[07:41] Marli grins , she nodded in agreement in the background , Cali had given a good advice and a tarsk was a good deal considering the advice given , Marli stepped closer and inspected the contents of the bag , purely out of interest
[07:41] Efuturist : Laughs at her humor, “Then the advice is not free then is it ..oh you are delightful creatures, much like the ones I met in the Forrest just last night..Well perhaps you are right I should take thee to the city to trade.”
[07:44] Marli sucked her lower lip, she shook her head in a no no , then stepped back , clearly not interested in the contents of the bag
[07:45] Caliegh nods and nods.. her student a quick learner “yes.. by all means.. i’m not a betting woman.. but, i’ll wager you’ll triple your previous profits.. selling furs to panthers is like selling icecubes to Torvelanders.. like selling seawater to pirates.. like selling” she stops.. thinking he gets the point now “now.. if you happen to get anything from the city… some type of luxury that we don’t have in the forest.. try trading that here… I do believe it’d be a quick sale for you
[07:48] Efuturist : Thinks a moment, “As a wise Trader you make a fair point, in fact in my skiff just down the river, I do often carry such items, is there something in particular you have of need?” he asks keeping the conversation going…
[07:50] Marli watched her sister leave unexpectedly into the woods , Marli inspected her fingernails “I have and interest in steel arrowheads , beads and sugars ”
[07:51] Efuturist : Notes this, and brings quill to scroll..”I see, these can be had in abundance…I will need to make a trip to the city for the perishables…what can you offer to trade?”
[07:53] Marli grinned widely as she looked up “I can offer you herbs and poisons from the swamps ……snake skin and water sleen innards …..I trade in the unusual ” , which was true , Marli besides being a sklilled huntress was also a skilled healer and tanner
[07:54] Chastbelle walks by the crowd to the forest path, hoping that her sudden change of clothing will have gone unnoticed
[07:55] Marli was too busy to notice the free woman that passed her by
[07:55] Efuturist : “Well met Marli, I am Efu a hunter and merchant, these items would indeed bring top coin in the cities of the lowlands, I would be honored to call you a trading partner Marli Huntress and healer.”
[07:57] Marli nodded slowly “Well met Efu hunter and merchant, you may find the trade post of our tribe at the swamps , head a few parsangs into Lake Ias and you will find my tribe ….the Luna Caleeng”
[07:59] Marli removed a creased note from her leather pouch ” a simple map with directions “
[08:00] Efuturist Daviau: He notes this as well, in his ledger…””Aiii I shall add this camp to my regular stops in these woods, “as a gesture of friendship[ he holds forthe a small sack..”May I offer you some steel tips to secure our friendship?”
[08:03] Marli smiled broadly , she stepped closer as she took the arrowheads . her feline body shining in all its magnificence in the late autumn sun “thank you merchant , this will secure our friendship and trading status “
Marli travels to the Kataii people to see if they will trade Bosk . Sometimes players will trade real virtual goods like [07:44] Maxim gave you Piel de bosk 01 [G&S] , these you can store in your SL inventory and use to trade on another day when you are online…….
[07:20] ArtiZan Visitor Greeter 1.11: Hi Marlies, Welcome To The Kataii Wagon Camp, home of the City of Turia. sim since 2007! Please Read the rules which were just given to you, there is no excuse for not knowing the rules as you now have them.
[07:24] Max : come for trade? I have some fine bosk for sale Lady
[07:24] Marli holds her nose up smelling bosk dung
[07:25] Ashlee runs out the gate after her master, see the woman, and stops kneels and greets her as she watches the girl also approaching
[07:25] Shibari Leire about backed up into the other guard and made her apologies and smile dunder her veil, she was dressed for colder weather it seemed and had jsut returned from her travels, “my apologies Sir.” she said looking at Drake.
[07:25] Ashlee : greetings Mistress, she says, theen hearing footstep behing her looks over her shoulder to see the man,
[07:26] Shibari Leire winked down at the slave and handed her a small wreath of leaves like the one she wore in her hair. “Harvest time in the north.”
[07:26] Ashlee : she greets him, softly
[07:26] Ashlee : greetings Master
[07:26] Marli tilts her head and looks the bosks over and simply asks the one named Max “What you wish to trade for these beasts”
[07:27] Drake nods to shibari in greetings “Tal, nothing to apologies for…” then turs to ashlee “tal girl” looks for the panther in the distance to see if its all fine
[07:27] Max: not sure what you might have of equal value, you seem for from the northern forests
[07:28] Marli nods “I am a healer and herbalist…..so thats what i offer …..for example sleeping potions…..thassa powders”
[07:29] Shibari Leire waved her hand before her to shoo some of the plains flies that seemed to plague the bosk as of late, it wa slate in the season and the weather would be changing soon, she could already feel the cool air, as if it had followed her from Ironhall. She looked drake over again, there seemed to be a lot more scarles about as of late, something she was thankful for. She heard the panther and the words she said made her take note as she smiled turning to bounty as she heard him approach
[07:30] Max : these bosk I value highly, my intent was to take them to Schendi and ask a gold tarn each
[07:31] Ashlee looks over to bounty, smiles softly, and greets him,
[07:31] Drake wear his armor and bracers taking couple of steps far as the situation is calm … looks to bounty and nods him in greetings”
[07:31] Marli nodded “indeed , panthers value gold” ….she showed her bracelet….finely decorated , perhaps it had belonged to a Lady of high status once
[07:31] Ashlee : greetings Master she says softly, then looking back to the woman
[07:32] Shibari Leire walked up to Bounty, leaned in and whispered something and then stepped back with a slight smiryk under her veil, then walked off as she winked at him showing him she was joking
[07:33] Max : then what do you offer, a full herd of bosk food enough for a dozen for many months? (?)
[07:35] Marli smiled “A full herd is way beyond my means….i was thinking of buying one if that is possible….in return for this gold bracelet and a pouch of sleeping powder” she showed the pouch, though knew that poisons were a typical female weapon , so hoped perhaps his companion if he had one would be interested
[07:36] Anneke1 : tal Free
[07:36] Anneke1 : greetings Sir
[07:36] Bounty : Tal M’lady
[07:36] Anneke1: looks around her…….tal kajirae
[07:36] Anneke1 : came to shake your hand Sir
[07:37] Anneke1 : reaches out for His
[07:37] Bounty : you did what did I do to deserve this
[07:38] Max : would you like it on the hoof or killed skinned and dried?
[07:38] Anneke1 : my gratitude
[07:38] Anneke1 : thats all
[07:38] Bounty listens to the merchant deal the bosk goods
[07:39] Drake looks at the situation is quite calm drake back to the town
[07:39] Marli patted the first bosk she saw “slaughtered and prepared…..a one on hoof would only slow me down”
[07:40] Bounty : then extends my hand freely
[07:40] Anneke1 : feels her arm slightly trembling
[07:40] Anneke1 : before she slips hers into his
[07:40] Anneke1 : thank you….she whispers
[07:41] Max draws his sword, walks calmly to the male bosk Archer he speaks softly to it saying thanks for providing for the farm and the city and slides the sharp Turian stell across it throat
[07:41] Anneke1 : i will not disappoint you
[07:41] Anneke1 : sees the beast been killed from the corner of her eyes
[07:41] Anneke1 : thats should bring luck
[07:42] Bounty : aye it will
[07:43] Marli holds her hand under the beasts throat , the warm blood flowing onto her palm, she cups it and drinks the blood and smiles “It tastes good”
[07:43] Anneke1 : her smile reflects in her eyes
[07:43] Max then quickly sciles it from to loin, he opens it and draws out the heart still beating and bites into it taking the strength of it into his body, he turns and offers the rest to the healer
[07:44] Maxim gave you Piel de bosk 01 [G&S].
[07:46] Marli takes the meat and carefully wraps it in a cotton cloth and runs some ropes around it , then offers her end of the bargain, the finely crafted gold bracelet and a pouch with dried herbs
[07:48] Max (maxim.monigal): ash to my foot!
[07:48] Lady Zena : Tal All
[07:48] Ashlee : yes My Master
[07:49] Anneke1 : tal Lady, be well
[07:49] Lady Zena : Please excuse me ….. as she walks by unnoticed
[07:49] Max takes the bracelet and places it on his slave “Very fitting my girl”
[07:50] Ashlee : runs over and kneels at his foot, smiles up to him, and lays her head against his leg for only a minute
[07:51] Marli smirked at the slave girl, such women meant little to her , she prepared the wrappings with the meat and slung it around her shoulder
[07:55] Marli then waved her hand “Safe paths bosk trader”
[07:55] Max : be well Lady
A Sa di Sani panther enters the Lakes, Marli approaches her ….after some banter Marli decides to see if this huntress can catch her a baby sleen in exchange for poisons…..yes ….Marli loves making poisons 🙂
[04:49] Tea: tal here
[04:49] Marli: Tal
[04:49] Tea waves looking at the panther cautiously still trying to show she has friendly intentions
[04:50] Tea sighs, “Nasty di jan…” She tilts her head a little.
[04:50] Marli folded her arms and from a distance inspected the stranger , she then raised an eyebrow at the panthers comment
[04:51] Tea tilts her head a little, “You…uh…dont share this view?”
[04:52] Marli blinks “of course the di jan are nasty to any one who is not a di jan ” she stated bluntly and matter of factly
[04:53] Marli: “I take it they were not so friendly with you ” she waved her hand “so who are you any way?”
[04:53] Tea ponders that a little and nods eyeing marli wondering if she may be one of the di jan
[04:54] Tea: “I’m a panther from Sa Di Sani…” She shrugs absent mindly, examining the trees.
[04:55] Marli nods slowly “ahhh, yes your tribe and the di jan are at war” she shrugs “or so the rumours go , not my concern as I am a Luna ”
[04:55] Tea chuckles, “I guess I should spend next two ahn causing mischief but not so sure it would be _polite_ to use you as a target…”
[04:56] Tea tilts her head, “uh, war? Really? Well they raided us, but…did they declare a war?…”
[04:56] Tea ponders, “They promised to do that if they see me around again, but in fact I havent been around for so long…”
[04:57] Marli narrows her eyes at tea, she thought she heard a threat just then , Marli was a loose cannon when it came to threats , real or imagined “you insult me on my own lands , i suggest you leave before I inform the di jan of your presence ”
[04:58] Tea blinks a little, “Uh….” She sighs, “No again.. Well, I mean…it may sound like a treat but in fact I’m just trying to…uh…to be nice really!” She smiles clumsily.
[04:59] Tea: “And..well…I had many funny time spent with Di Jan huntresses but they have too many members and prolly most of them don’t even know me…”
[05:00] Marli thought for a moment , she still had some iskander potion in the pouch on her right hip , she figured she might have to use it “why are you telling a Luna this ? ”
[05:00] Tea keeps speaking feeling she cannot just stop, “And..and….tell me, is it your tribe over here?” She makes a short pause, “I’d like to …. well…do you have any goods for sell?…”
[05:02] Marli points her thumb at the blue tribal flag “We are Luna Caleeng , sisters of Luna Jerag founded by Mars Sirbu” still unsure about the sa di sani , she nodded “We can trade if its to a mutual advantage ”
[05:04] Tea tilts her head, “Why Luna Jerag sounds so familiar….I guess that tribe disappeared….how long ago? A year maybe?.. Or…?” She just shrugs a little, “I like to travel around…not necessary as a huntress…often in disguise…as a merchant caste…and I’m curious to…well… to trade” She smiles brightly, “I wonder do you have any interesting goods to offer? Or…do you…uh…. do you have any she-urt friends?”
[05:09] Marli lips curled in a thin smile , Marli’s mood changing as she had a oppertunity to trade , which she preferred to confrontation if possible “Luna Jerag lives on as Luna Caleeng” she placed her hands on her hips “I do have some interesting items to trade from our swamps …..herbs……poisons ……snake skins …..spider silks ” she chuckled “We trade in the unusual……we have bonta fruits to cure swamp madness or prepared in a different manner ….will cause madness , even death”
[05:11] Tea just nods a little, pondering, “Uh….spider…silks?” She blushes a little and nods, “Didnt know they….can….” She nods a little, “Uh….guess I should try to remember…And…what about bonta fruits?…What sort of madness do the cause?…”
[05:15] Marli bit her lower lips , perhaps revealing too much about the hidden treasures of her swamps , indeed she prefered strangers to stay away and think the swamps were a dangerous and smelly place , it meant her tribe could prosper , even in times of war “Mhm….the bonta fruits skin when cooked can cause madness” she made a circling motion close to her head “quite mad !” she whistled too as if to make her point clear
[05:18] Tea nods slightly considering your words, “Well..I meet quite a lot of mad people here already I guess…but…would it be a permanent..effect?” She tilts her head a little, “And…do you have some…friends in cities….she-urts or…” She pauses, “Some sort of criminals…” She says last word a bit insecurely maybe…
[05:22] Marli smirks “permanent and leading to death…there is no antidote …at least none that our tribe has discovered ” she tossed her red hair to one side , her fiery eyes looking the dark skinned panther over once more , she noted every detail keenly on this woman “there was a she urt that came to our lands two weeks ago” she paused “she claimed she was an excellent thief ..” Marli stopped , not revealing the name of this she urt
[05:24] Tea sighs quietly, “Oh…you surely use this poison on your enemies pretty often?…” She tilts her head, “Two weeks it’s like an eternity…Well I think I have someone who can help me with this quest anyway…”
[05:27] Marli nodded in confirmation , her tribe used the bonta sap and juices and dipped arrow heads in “So, what can we trade stranger ?” Marli wanted to get down to business as the panther was no longer interested in her she urt
[05:27] Tea tilts her head a little, “I am….well…not trading right now…just inquiring….
[05:29] Teasmiles a little one more time , “It’s curious to know what people produce and…I might need your poison some day….but death…no-no I’m not sure I would buy it…I can hire an assassin if I need someone dead…” She tilts her head slightly, “But madness without death could be interesting…”
[05:31] Marli tilted her head to one side “madness without death?” she then chuckles , as the crafty healer panther she once was “certain mixtures of herbs can cause that , if that is what you need then I shall prepare a potion for you, in exchange for a baby water sleen ….dead or alive ”
[05:31] Tea blinks a little, “Baby water sleen?…Uh…where would I find one?”
[05:32] Marli: “I have seen one or two on the banks of the river near your camp ….but I dare not hunt them myself so close to your camp…so I would appreciate that trade if possible ” she grinned
[05:33] Tea tilts her head a little, “Well I dont need it right now…but I might visit you sooner or later…” She smiles slightly.
[05:34] Marli nodded in approval “Good ……I will inform my sisters a dark panther form SDS might call at our trade post to trade “
Meri is given a map of a trading post
[07:23:55] Meri holds her bow thight in her hand while she reaches her other hand out wraps her fingers around the map”what is this ?”she asks and looks down on the map a bit confused she glanzes back up at the man “do you want me to give it to Twig ?”
[07:25:16] Dяαкιυѕ Lιℓנαяy nods slightly “Yes, or share with your people here. It is a trading post me and my tribe have set up camp close to. People are wary of travelling there due to our close pressence.
