As my plans for both a short story set in Tékumel, and a rp game, procceeds I have come to this little question; how do the slavers obtain slaves?

No doubt this information is hidden in some illustrious but obfuscate volym somewhere, but I cannot really find it. But instead of asking people to quote books or something I would simply make a small assumption on my own part, and then ask if it would work ok.

My idea is to have the slavers happily abducting Clanless and poor foreigners from the Foreign Quarters and perhaps buy some criminals, who haven't really done anything northworthy to justify a public death or something like that, and then take them onboard for the travel back home. I could also see downtrodden members of mentioned groups selling themselves as famine slaves to avoid starvation. Do you think that this could work in and for Tékumel?

Would it require significent inducements to keep the guards and temples at ease, I guess not but I thought that I would ask, and is there anything else that you think that I should think about on this issue?

Wow, good question.

Honestly, I don't have a clue how it works. your idea seems as good as any.

Thanks, then I know I'm not doing anything setting-breaking stuff. :)

I figured that the slavers probably bought some slaves from other countries, or followed armies around to be ready to cut some quick deals during war. And likly they also keep at least some slaves around for the purpose of breeding new ones who can be raised into a docile life of servitude. But when there's peace, I figured, how did they get new stock to replenish their supply in the first place on a scale larger enough to support society's need for slaves?

I was thinking for some time to add some kind of savage raiding and putting whole villages in chains, but then I decided that the slavers would have to travel very long to find territory where that could work, and there wouldn't be soldiers and navies on the watch against them. If at all possible within a practical perspective for most slaver Clans. And thus, the idea that I posted in my first post. :)
