This Group caters for panther tribes who internally may not wish to be full BTB but in their external RP wish to interact in a book based way with BTB Lands of Gor. It will provide a common interface defined by set of rule’s or ‘protocols’ these will be added as an annex by all BBP member Tribes to their own rule set (defining BTB Role Play scenario’s) Invitation to the Group is by each tribe En or assigned BBP Tribe Officer. It prescribes internally to tribes following RP to the genre of the Gor Novels
Starting membership will be Sa Di Sani, Sa’Jesuil, Di’Jan, Sa Ki Fori, Forest Moon, Zima Akam, Kar’Sa’Hesa; tribes wishing to join the group should read the rules and story line and if they agree to them and will be welcomed. The En of a tribe wishing to join can approach any of En’s of tribes above to apply for membership for their tribe. Tribe En’s will be made Officers of group with ability to add and remove members; NOTE – this is not open membership group.
Tribes that join BBP will act in a way that is BTB when facing role play with BTB SIM’s as defined in the rules attached.
Tribes joining the BBP group will add the rules to their own, by adopting them and role playing within these rules they can face into either BTB SIM’s or continue to interact with GE SIM’s as currently. Tribes joining the group, as now, may declare themselves internally to be be either BTB, GE; (note: joining BBP and adopting the rules defined below they could also state themselves to be just BBP tribes). The intention is to promote what has become almost non existent Role Play between BTB SIM’s and BBP Panther tribes, as defined in the Novels of Gor.
Tribes who join BBP may have individuals within their group who do not want this type of role play, they can opt out by not individually joining the group and stating this in their personal limits. If the prospect of interacting with BTB SIM’s, or for BTB Players with GE SIM’s, is not the role play they wish, and they do not want to play in the opposing SIM’s, then they will be expected to clearly state this in their personal limits. If a member of a BBP tribe but opting out they will be expected to accept binds but NOT be expected to be sailed off their own sim.
Tribes that are members BBP will automatically have the En of tribe to join a Council of En’s to ensure the correct rules of Role Play are followed. This forum will be available as a point of resolution for BTB SIM’s who have issues they wish to raise, and also be responsible in their tribe for following RP story line.
The rules and story line are included below; Tribes should display a graphic sign at the SIM entrance to show they are a ‘BBP Tribe’ containing BBP rules.
