Wayne Mitchell introduced Doctor Raymond Nord and The Mansion Club in Senior Project. He told more about the workings of The Mansion Club’s inner world in Handcuff Island. Now, in The Mansion Club, The Beginnings he goes back two hundred years to 1807 to tell how it all began.
The Mansion Club, The Beginnings is as much about power as about sex– but sex and power have always been closely intertwined. The story follows Felicia Austenberry’s transformation into wayward, the personal submissive of Sir Raymond Ulfr Nordman, Esquire, Lord of Westcombe Manor. That transformation occurs as Sir Raymond transforms The Mansion Hunting Club, a local fox hunting gathering, into The Mansion Club, a gathering of some of the most powerful people in the United Kingdom, and someday, the world.
When he first meets Felicia, he tells her, “I know how power works in the world. I know how power works in governments. And most importantly, I know how power works in people.”
He grinned at her and said in an almost teasing voice, “That means I know how you work, my little wayward slut.”
Sir Raymond shows Felicia the truth about herself and leads her away from her school as a naked slut-slave to become his personal submissive, whom he names “wayward.” Along the way, he tests wayward’s limits of pain, pleasure, and submission as he trains her to be the example on which he founds his new club of international power. Lord Nordman invites eight others to join him on The Council of Masters as he launches this new club which will someday be a power in the world– a power greater than many nations.
The requirements to be on this first council were– as they are today– that a person be powerful in their own right, and that they obtain their own submissive over whom they can demonstrate control. That demonstration of control is a necessary part of becoming one of the nine members of The Council of Masters.
The story ends with the first official meeting of The Mansion Club at which the first eighteen regular members are inducted into the club. At that meeting, the nine submissives of the council members are displayed and their submission demonstrated before they are officially collared by their Masters. The rest, as says the old cliche, is history.
