THE SERVICE AREA
There is a rock wall on one side, the cold water trinkles down from it for spring water. Attached to the wall there is a dome.
The dome is a botanical garden filled with flowers, talenders, dina flowers, flaminium and others, fruits and vegetables grown on Gor.
They are located against the wall of the dome in a ring that surrounds the serving area with the bounties of nature, providing fresh fruits and vegetables for the Free to enjoy. There are also baskets of fresh herbs and such hanging from the upper reaches of the dome, as well as carefully tied bundles of dried herbs and spices.
In the middle there is a round island, with shelves, where the serving vessels are: small cups to serve blackwine; tankards and Bosk horns to serve ale and mead; goblets to serve Ka-la-na and ta wine; three foot wooden bowls, kantharos, and metalic goblets to serve paga and sul paga, clay bowls to serve kal-da, glasses to serve tea and liqueurs. The other utensils, such as plates, dishes, teapots and trays are in the upper shelves in the island. Prongs, spoons, ladders and kitchen knives are in the drawers.
The bottles of Paga, Ka-la-na and other wines and liqueurs are stocked in the Dome in racks at room temperature and the chilled drinks are in the the fresh water spring.
The food as well as big containers as casks and barrels are stored in the cave, behind the water fall.
We have bosk, tarsk, vulo, eggs and all kind of fish (please consult the Menu below).
This cave is also where the slaves find the ale and the mead to be kept, which means the girls must traverse a stone path between the dome and the cave, passing just beneath the falls. Often, the rainbow mists of the falling water will settle on the silken skin of the busy slaves and will cause silks to cling in a pleasing manner, the sight of the damp slave girls one of the many natural assets of the Springs.
The big kettles and copper pots for brewing kalda and blackwine, or warming paga and sul paga, over the fire are stored in the back of the cave until put to use by the slaves.
The Cooking Area
There is a cooking zone in the camp, in the open, near the glass dome and a rotisserie to broil and roast big animals.
On the side of the rotisserie there is another rack with bottles of paga, sul paga, and various wines for warming over the fire.
There is a small selection of the single-serving copper bowls which can be set on a brazier over the coals as needed. Here there may often be found generous kettles of paga, blackwine and kalda, all made fresh daily, for the delectation of the Free.
We have bosk, tarsk, vulo, eggs and all kinds of fish stored in the casks in the cave or in water-tight containers weighted to remain at the bottom of the icy second pool, tied by various lines to a small post buried between the rocks beside the pool. (see the the Menu, in the Food page).
For information on gorean drinks and food see the Drinks and Foods pages, with quotes from the books, organised by categories.
In the dome there is a section with first aid products as well as beauty products, soap, perfume, essences and oils for massages and for bathes.
The Free are often seen slipping off the the hot springs shielded behind the luxurious greenery with an attending slave to bathe them. The hot springs are a soothing benefit of this haven that helps to ease the tensions of Free who come to converse, mingle and relax after their busy days.
