Slavery is a FOnline: Aftertimes feature that allows you to capture NPCs and force them to help you. By then, they act pretty much like mercs. However, unlike mercs, your slaves can't handle a lot of weapons, and are less skilled. Besides this, you can sell your slaves to get caps, and set up a real slaver business. A good thing with mercs and slaves is they never try to escape.
You can trade (give) slaves to other players.
To become a slaver
Being a slaver is the first requirement to be able to enslave people. Once you are a slaver, you'll be marked forever as one with a big, nice tattoo in the middle of your face. It has both advantages and drawbacks. Please note that if you don't have the slaver perk that Metzger can give you, you can't enslave people.
Joining the Business
Just talk to Metzger, the Den's leader. He is in the top-eastern house in the town, surrounded by his guards. Ask him to tell you about his life and the place where he is located, and then, there you go! "I want to be a slaver." You'll get your Slaver Tattoo and a nice special perk that allows you to enslave, but makes you unable to forget you're a slaver. Useful, isn't it?
Important note: Although trait Good Natured does not make becoming a Slaver impossible, it makes Slavery useless as "Good Natured" gives you 50 party points but in return you can not have any slaves.

Selling your slaves
Once you have enslaved people, and once they follow you, you can earn caps by selling them to notorious slavers :
- Ashdown in Raiders base will buy slaves.
- Metzger in Den will buy them.
- Vortis in NCR (Top-left corner of screen) will buy them too.
Prices vary a lot, but the common female slave will be bought for 300 caps, and male for 400 caps while children are taken for 200 caps. On the side note - female Combat Slaves can be sold for 650 caps.
