RE: [SCA Newcomers] Re: Non-medieval characters?
- Greetings to the List!
As Much as I love ancient Egypt (ex-archaeology major here) they really
are inappropriate to the SCA. There is a valid excuse for the Aztek
persona, there was interaction between the New World and the Azteks late
in the SCA period; but that justification really doesn't work for ancient
Egypt. Sorry if this seems negative, just my $.02 worth.
