Right on, Ian! By the way, my persona, North African Berber, is so poorly known in the SCA (in spite of the fact that they had extensive contact with the Byzantine Empire, the Middle Eastern Muslims, actually ruled Spain for a hundred years, were pirates preying on the Italians in the Mediterranean, and other contacts...) that the SCA main Herald group passed my name without conflict because they had too little information on the subject to raise any serious objections!!

Actually that is not an interpretation. It is just about exactly
what SCA inc. Corpora says. Period.
But the points you made about being out of the mainstream and not
feeling like you fit in (no others of you around etc) also is made in
SCA inc. Corpora.
Why do it? Why not? Because it is an area of interest you have that
