Kennel (cage) Edit
(noun) small cage or room, at Gor used to confine a slave. Usually with a bared door.
I had dropped through the kennel door and, some feet below, struck the straw-strewn floor of the kennel. The kennel was a cage, a sleen cage, tipped on its side, fully barred sunk mostly into the ground. The cage in its original attitude, when used for sleen, would have been some four feet in height, six feet in width and twelve feet in length. Tipped on its side, tobbetter accommodate humans, it was some six feet in height and four by twelve feet in breadth and length. In the attitude, it was entered from the top. Within there was a wooden rung ladder, for climbing out of it. It was sunk in some four and a half feet in the ground. Wooden planks, covered with straw, lay over the bars on the bottom. These planks were separated by some two inches apiece, to facilitate drainage. The cage was roofed, too, with planks; fastened over the top of the bars, including some, sawed, over the barred door. At night a tarpaulin was thrown over the cage roof. Standing in the cage one could look out, one's shoulders being approximately at ground level

Shipcamp, as Tarncamp, was divided into various sections, each with its own administration area, officers’ quarters, barracks, dojo, eating halls, kitchen, slave kennels, and such. Our kennel was Kennel Five. Some facilities were shared, such as the Slave House.
