be auctioned to his troops in the Street of Brands, the
proceeds going to the coffers of Pa-Kur. A levy of
seven thousand young men would be taken to fill the
depleted ranks of his siege slaves. Children under
twelve would be distributed at random among the
free cities of Gor. As for the slaves of Ar, they would
belong to the first man who changed their collar.
