First Slave of Harem

This role traditionally suits a man but is open to male and female applicants. 

First slave should be beautiful and able to lead and train other slaves. A good knowledge of serves and slave protocols are necessary, or a willingness to learn. 

The First Slave assists the Sovereign in managing the Harem and is this accorded privileges above that of normal slaves. It would suit a strong personality who can easily lead others.

Imperial Prince

Imperial Princes to join the First Family. These roles do need an experienced role-player who can assume a strong character.

This will mean you need to change your display name to Raven.

Imperial Jester

to lighten the mood...mock and tease...entertain the Sultana and her Court. Possibly with a darker edge
Entertainers to put on small plays...tell stories and play music and dance, together and alone

Sancti Haruspex

(Male & Female role) trained to practice divination by the inspection of the entrails and other methods. 

This role can mix in tantra and other magical methods to make your role something unique.

Harem Slaves & Dancers

Both male & female slaves wanted.

To serve in Harem, engage in conversation with guests, serve and delight.

Imperial Guard

Open to males and females.

To protect the Sovereign and First Family and uphold law and order in the Lands of Zerzura.

Espionage and raids will also be possible

 
 

Priests & Priestesses

To serve in the Temple in Zerzura. Officiate in ceremonies, led by he Heirophant and serve the community.

Temple workers follow the ways of Dionysus. They aren't limited sexually or morally. More information is available from Demetra inworld

Each Priest/Preistess begins as an Initiate and follows the rite of the  Eleusinian Mysteries (Greater & Lesser) before being granted their full title.

 

Tavern Keeper and staff

A role for a robust role player, who could build and develop a strong role in the low caste of Zerzura. The Tavern is a haven for rowdy drinking sessions and criminal activities. 

Tavern slaves are lusty slaves with bawdy chat.

Zerzura has equal rights so women can apply for these roles too.

The Professions

Zerzura runs a Caste system similar to Gor and so Scribes, Bankers, Physicians, Merchants of all types and wealth and  Builders are welcome

Healer

A natural healer, not educated formally but used instead herbs and barks to heal.

Could this be you? 

If you'd like to apply, contact Demetra Raven (Cali Roffo)

This is nonsense.

Everyone knows that Scylla is a beautiful, frighteningly intelligent, and fiercely passionate woman who is admired and adored by all who know her.

You should swim across the channel sometime. She's cute.

She's ok. Bit of a big mouth, though. And she could use some serious dental work.

...bites her tongue.

Sarcasm is no way to greet an old monster friend.

Besides, you can hurt yourself that way: what if you had teeth like Charybdis?

Also,  Medusa didn't go against Athena's wishes and marry Poseidon.  He took her against her will and since she was no longer pure, Athena got mad at her and turned her into the hideous, snake-haired monster we know today, as punishment.

A rather vague description of the Minotaur, by the way. There was a maze, not 'mazes and puzzles'.

In reply to your comment, Wikipedia states a Scylla as a monster 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scylla

"Irony" is also an ancient Greek monster (eironeia, derived in English via the ancient Romans and the Latin ironia).

And it can also bite.

In later myth becoming a nymph and so you can play it either way but indeed Scylla are seen by some as hideous monsters still.

It really depends upon whether or not I've had my morning coffee.

 

(For what very little it's worth, it was Scylla's incarnation as a monster that I had most in mind when I chose my name. I had many to choose from: mythology is replete with "monstrous females." I wonder why?)
