to be tactful. For the most part, the "pentacle-at-events" crowd has some
extremely shoddy ideas of "history," much less "authenticity." All of the
evidence I've seen points to Wicca being a twentieth-century invention --
perhaps as far back as the 1880's, but far more likely to be the 1930's.
Either way you look at it, it's OOP.

exception, not the rule. Usually, the rule is somewhere between the
protest over the Pennsic medalions and the "My ceremonial robes are
really Norman T-tunics" crowd.
I probably sound quite nasty-tempered on that -- and now I _know_ I'm
getting way off topic.

Okay, I'm going to try it at the next event. Of course, I'll have to wake
up at dawn, but there you go.
I don't have a Muslim persona, but no one will know who it is, they'll just
hear it ringing out. I hope to create "magic moments" for people by doing
that, especially the Muslim personae who just might follow the summons and
kneel to face Mecca in prayer.
