I cringe every time someone passes out that lame notecard on paces the people in HTML used. It is NOT right to teach new girls something that’s incorrect. For example, the lame notecard teaches this as one of the slave paces: When asked, “What are you, girl?” You will answer, “This girl is a slave, Master! La Kajira!” This question is NEVER answered this way in the book, and it’s stupid to insist it be memorized and repeated back by rote. It does nothing to teach a girl what her role in Gor really is.
Here is information I compiled on what are considered slave paces. In the books, these are NOT called PACES. Paces are when a slaver (for example) has a girl move in certain ways to showcase her body.
I have also included supporting documentation:
ON THE COLLAR:
— What is the common purpose of a collar?
— The collar has four common purposes, Master. First, it visibly designates me as a slave, as a brand might not, should it be covered by clothing. Second, it impresses my slavery upon me. Thirdly, it identifies me to my Master. Fourthly, it makes it easier to leash me.

He is Master, and I am Slave. He is owner, and I am owned. He commands, and I obey. He is to be pleased, and I am to please. Why is this? Because he is Master and I am Slave.

“What is the duty of a slave girl,” I inquired. “Absolute obedience,” she said, frightened. “What are you?” I inquired. “A slave girl,” she said. “What is your duty?” I asked. “Absolute obedience,” she cried out.

“A girl’s first duty, of course, Master,” she said, “is to be pleasing to her Master.” “In what way?” I asked. “In any, and every way, of course, Master,” she said shyly.

“What hangs upon the wall?” a master might ask. “The slave whip, Master,” she responds. “How may I be more pleasing?”
Players of Gor, page 25
Insubordination in any form, of any sort, in even the tiniest, least significant degree, is not accepted from slave girls by their Gorean masters.
Players of Gor, page 227
“You cannot punish me!” she cried. “You are not my Masters!” “Any Free Person can punish an errant slave girl,” I said. “Surely you do not think that her behavior fails to be subject to supervision and correction as soon as she is out of her Master’s sight?”
Magicians of Gor, page 225
The discipline of a slave may be attended to by any Free Person, otherwise she might do much what she wished, provided only her Master did not learn of it. The legal principle is clear, and has been upheld in several courts, in several cities, including Ar.
Magicians of Gor, page 122
In the eyes of Goreans, and Gorean law, the slave is an animal. She is not a person, but an animal. She has no name, saving what her master might choose to call her. She is without caste. She is without citizenship. She is simply an object, to be bartered, or bought or sold. She is simply an article of property, completely, nothing more.
