Period. (so to speak. <g>)
The only "extra" allowed was a misguided Laurel ruling years ago to allow anything first
documented between 1600 and 1650 under the supposition that if it's first public reference was
then, it was POSSIBLE that it first appeared earlier, IN period.
People started using this to claim things that were documentedly INVENTED in 1600-1650 (OOP) were
allowable in the SCA under that rule.
I do not and will not do post period. Nor can I or will I support it.
