According to the books, slaves spoke in first person unless they needed to speak in slave language for special emphasis, usually in forms of added submissiveness. Slave language is third person….this girl, this little one, etc. Therefore, it is not inappropriate to use I to refer to yourself. However, this is completely up to your owner’s wish. Many want their slaves to use slave language all the time. Make sure you understand what is the preference of your Master or Mistress.
Do not be a lazy slave. Never use abbreviations in your conversation or emotes. A slave must always be pleasing and with the utmost respect in all that she says and does.
If you do need to speak out of character (OOC), then do this in doves. OOC conversation tends to bog down the role play.
Slaves are expected to be quiet unless spoken too. However, this does not mean you should sit there and be boring. You should use emotes to express thoughts, emotions, and actions. You can participate fully in the role play using emotes effectively. Never just sit idly. Do something in emotes to add to the role play around you.
Always be polite, respectful, and ready to serve. A rude kajira is one ready to be killed. In addition, you never strike the Free or carry weapons. Any of these infractions will result in death.
If you are unsure how to act, it is fine to ask in IMs in the middle of role play, or ask a kajirus or kajira nearby. Everyone understands that a new little one in training is not always aware of what to do in every circumstance.
