-DRUGS & DISEASES OF GOR-

ANESTHETIC DART


A drug used to render someone unconscious, can be used on a cloth, dart, however needed.

"Anesthetic darts, too, are sometimes used in the taking of females; these may be flung or entered into her body by hand; they take effect in about forty Ihn; she awakens often, stripped, in a slave kennel."

Marauders of Gor, Pg. 116.

BAZI PLAGUE


A deadly, rapidly spreading disease with no known cure; its symptoms include pustules which appear all over the body, and a yellowing of the whites of the eyes.

"Plague, some years ago, had broken out in Bazi, to the north, which port had then been closed by the merchants for two years. In some eighteen months it had burned itself out, moving south and eastward."

Marauders of Gor, Pg. 116.

BREEDING WINE


A sweet beverage which counteracts the effects of slave wine, making a slavegirl fertile; also called second wine.

"In the concentrated state, as in slave wine, developed by the caste of physicians, the effect is almost indefinite, usually requiring a releaser for its remission, usually administered, to a slave, in what is called the breeding wine, or the "second wine."

Blood Brothers of Gor, Pg. 319.

CAPTURE SCENT


Chloroform.

"Soaked in a rag and scarf and held over the nose and mouth of a female it can render her unconscious in five Ihn. She squirms wildly for an Ihn or two, and then sluggishly, and then fell limp. It is sometimes used by tarnsmen; it is often used by slavers."

Marauders of Gor, Pg. 116.

DAR-KOSIS


An incurable, wasting disease akin to the Earth disease of leprosy.

"At any rate, disease is now almost unknown among the Gorean cities, with the exception of the dreaded Dar-kosis disease, or the Holy Disease, research on which is generally frowned upon by the Caste of Initiates, who insist the disease is a visitation of the displeasure of the Priest-Kings on its recipients."

Assassin of Gor, Pg. 29.

FROBICAIN


"They seem very quiet," I observed.'We permit them," said Flaminius, deigning to offer a bit of explanation, "five Ahn of varied responses, depending on when they recover from the frobicain injection. Mostly this takes the form of hysterical weeping, threats, demands for explanation, screaming and such. They will also be allowed to express their distress for certain periods at stated times in the future."

Assassin of Gor, Pg. 126.

GIERON



A drug, an allergen, which causes a yellowing of the whites of the eyes; in combination with sajel, it reproduces the symptoms of the Bazi plague.

"My pursuit of you was foiled," I said, "by the results of the drug you placed in my paga."
"The drug," said Shaba, "was a simple combination of sajel, a simple pustulant, and gieron, an unusual allergen. Mixed they produce a facsimile of the superficial symptoms of Bazi plague."
"I could have been killed," I said, "by the mob."
I did not think many would care to approach you," said Shaba.
"It was not your intention then that I be killed?" I asked. "Certainly not," said Shaba. "if that was all that was desired, kanda might have been introduced into your drink as easily as sajel and gieron"

Explorers of Gor, Pg. 154.

KANDA


A shrub of the Gorean desert; a lethal poison can be extracted rom its roots, while chewing the leaves has an addictive narcotic.

"'The bolts,' said the man, indicating the missiles at rest in the guides of the weapons, 'are tipped with kanda. The slightest scratch from them will finish you.' 'I see you are not of the assassins,' I said. It is a matter of pride for members of that caste to avoid the use of poisoned steel. Too, their codes forbid it."

Beasts of Gor, Pg. 141.


MUL-PELLETS

a pellet given to the Muls *slaves* which supplement their meal intake.

"...the Mul-Pellets are undoubtedly some type of dietary supplement..."

Priest-Kings of Gor, Pg. 109


SAJEL


A drug which causes harmless pustules to erupt on the body; in combination with gieron, it reproduces the symptoms of the Bazi plague.

"My pursuit of you was foiled," I said, "by the results of the drug you placed in my paga." "'The drug,' said Shaba, 'was a simple combination of sajel, a simple pustulant, and gieron, an unusual allergen. Mixed they produce a facsimile of the superficial symptoms of Bazi plague.' 'I could have been killed,' I said, 'by the mob.' I did not think many would care to approach you,' said Shaba. 'It was not your intention then that I be killed?' I asked. 'Certainly not," said Shaba. 'if that was all that was desired, kanda might have been introduced into your drink as easily as sajel and gieron.'"

Explorers of Gor, Pg. 154


SLAVE WINE


A drug which can prevent pregnancy.

"Slave wine is bitter, intentionally so. Its effect lasts for more than a Gorean month. I did not wish the females to conceive. A female slave is taken off slave wine only when it is her masterís intention to breed her."

Marauders of Gor, Pg. 24


SIP ROOT


A drug which can prevent pregnancy.

"'We were made to chew sip roots on the way to the camp," she said, 'to protect us, if our red masters should choose to seize and rape us.'"

Blood Brothers of Gor, Pg. 163


STABILIZATION SERUM


Used to slow the aging process.

"The Stabilization Serums, which are regarded as the right of all human beings, be they civilized or barbarian, friend or enemy, are administered in a series of injections, and the effect is, incredibly, an eventual, gradual transformation of certain genetic structures, resulting in indefinite cell replacement without pattern deterioration."

Assassin of Gor, Pg. 31


TASSA POWDER


Used normally in a red colored drink to put a person to sleep, it is red in color.

"When the Lady Melpomene had finished with me, after that long night of her use of me, she had held for me another draft of water, discolored by the reddish Tassa powder. I had not wished to drink this. Then she had held her dagger to my body. I drank. Soon I was unconscious."

Fighting Slave of Gor, Pg. 228


UNKNOWN SLEEPING POWDER


Used in a drink to put a person to sleep.

"Kamchak said nothing, then he got up and from a chest in the wagon he took forth a goblet and filled it with an amber fluid, into which he shook a dark, bluish powder. He then took Elizabeth Cardwell in his left arm and with his right hand gave her the drink. Her eyes were frightened, but she drank. In a few moments she was asleep."
