Calling upon every ounce of his great strength, Carter drove his sword into the arbok's neck. The creature shuddered. A stream of blood gushed from the wound. The man wriggled from under the dead body and sprang to his feet. Dejah Thoris! There was no sign of Dejah Thoris. She had utterly vanished. A shaft of light from the rising sun filtering through the foliage glistened on an object at the earthman's feet.
Carter picked up a large shell, a shell recently ejected from a silent atom gun. Springing to the dead thoat, he examined the saddle trappings.
The atom gun that he had told Dejah Thoris to fire was still in its leather boot! The earthman stooped beside the dead thoat's head. There was a tiny, bloody hole through its skull.
That shot and the charging arbok had been part of a well conceived plan to abduct Dejah Thoris, and kill him! But Dejah Thoris—how had she disappeared so quickly, so completely? Free eBooks!

In the first place there was no room to fight. We were simply submerged by numbers. Then as swords menaced me a command from Xodar stayed the hands of his fellows. He now personally attended to my disarming and saw that I was properly bound. In reality, at the South Pole, Mars' moons would not be seen, and the sun would not rise in the east and set in the west all directions away from the Pole are "north" in any case , but instead ring the cliffs for half the Martian year, and leave the area shrouded in darkness for the other half of the Martian year.
In addition, unlike what one would expect at the south pole of Mars, the temperature in the Valley of Dor is mild and temperate, and although that may be accounted for by its being in a deep crater, the temperature in the Therns' fortress on the surrounding cliffs does not appear to be all that cold either.
World of Barsoom[ edit ] Main article: Barsoom A million years before the narrative commences, Mars was a lush world with oceans. As the oceans receded, and the atmosphere grew thin, the planet has devolved into a landscape of partial barbarism;  living on an aging planet, with dwindling resources, the inhabitants of Barsoom have become hardened and warlike, fighting one another to survive. The thinning Martian atmosphere is artificially replenished from an "atmosphere plant".

It is a world with clear territorial divisions between White, Yellow, Black, Red and Green skinned races. Each has particular traits and qualities, which seem to define the characters of almost every individual thereof. Nevertheless Burroughs' concept of race, as depicted in the novels, is more like a division between species than between ethnicity.
John Carter spent his first ten years on Mars without knowing of the existence of the other races, aside from ancient paintings and frescoes that depicted White Martians. Both are humanoid like the Reds, and indeed the Therns are close enough to whites on Earth that Carter was able to pose as one, and was easily mistaken for one. Therns[ edit ] The Therns are white skinned and bald, wearing blond wigs. They live in a well-fortified complex of gardens and temples in the cliffs above the Valley Dor, the supposed Martian heaven; the cliffs also contain a network of subterranean caves and passages.
The Therns control the dangerous beasts that live in the valley, and ransack, enslave, or eat the flesh of the survivors. They consider themselves a unique creation, different from other Martians.
They are themselves raided by the Black Martians. As such, they are apparently the only Martians who know how to swim.
They call themselves the 'First Born', believing themselves a unique creation among Martian races, and worship Issus, the false deity of the Martian religion. They raid the White Martian Therns carrying off girls as slaves, and have a massive aerial navy, which John Carter defeats.
Like the Therns, the Black Martians also enslave some of the Red Martians who come down the Iss, but not the Greens, which they consider unworthy. Religious deception[ edit ] There are a number of incidents of religious deception, or the use of superstition by those in power to control and manipulate others, in the Barsoom series.
The Gods of Mars
Upon reaching 1, years of age almost all Martians undertake a pilgrimage along the River Iss expecting to find a valley of paradise; but find in fact a deathtrap, populated by ferocious creatures and overseen by a race of cruel, cannibal priests known as Therns, who perpetuate the Martian religion through a network of spies across the planet.
Burroughs was not anti-religious; but was concerned by the abuse and exploitation of religious belief, and saw this as a common feature of organized religion. In he and his prospector partner strike it rich; but the partner is killed by American Indians and Carter takes refuge in a cave where he is overcome by smoke produced by an American Indian woman and wakes up on Mars. He effectively disappeared for nine years [while on Mars], believed dead, but re-emerged in New York in , settling on the Hudson.
He appeared to die in , leaving instructions for a fictionalized Burroughs, who refers to him as an 'uncle' of the family, to entomb him in a crypt, and leaving Burroughs with the manuscript of A Princess of Mars with instructions not to publish it for another 21 years.
He is adept with command, horsemanship, swords, and all weapons. He is 6'2" tall, with black hair and gray steel eyes.SC fuzzmasters since These extra successes tional success should spur the player to think in this way.
Immediately before their room closes, Phaidor attempts to kill Dejah Thoris, and her success or failure are left unknown. Eight powerful legs carried the creature forward in great, leaping strides.
