      Hi Basil,

      For something less daunting than an Enchanted Ground, one thing I've seen people do is to have a designated time (say, a particular hour or two) every day where everybody in a camp agrees to not talk about modern things.  The success doesn't depend on having period equipment in the camp, just the willingness of the people gathered there to give it a try.

      For some sources for Islamic personas, you may already have seen these articles from Cariadoc's Miscellany:

      I would *love* to have Enchanted Ground at an event! (Yes,
      I've read up on them, I know

      what it involves). However, here in An Tir, there seems to
      be zero interest in such a

      thing, or in authentically *acting the part* or one's
      persona. Talk about personas, sure;

      *_BE_* one's persona, nope.

      I'd try setting up an Enchanted Ground myself, except
      for two things: first, my tent and

      equipment is mostly screamingly modern, and two, I'm too
      much the coward. I'm also just

      not the "take the lead" type; I can be a good and
      helpful follower, but if I try to lead I

      second guess myself too much, as well as being to rigid and
      thus driving people off.

      What I'm looking for is hints and help on *me* staying
      in character, and how to do so in

      ways that encourage others to give it a try. IOW, something
      less formal, less insistent,

      than Enchanted Ground.

      I hope to hear more from you all! :-)
