And, in all fairness, addressed to the group owners rather than to the group as a whole.

Right.... sounds like you may have misunderstood this group slightly.

Whitewall is a city in the fantasy-roleplaying universe of Glorantha. This group is set up specifically to discuss that city - no other roleplaying systems, no other universes, no other part of that universe. We touch on lots of other things tangentially as a means of figuring out how the place works (the main plot-line has it under siege), but that's what we're for. You may well have many interests in common with us, but this won't be the place to discuss them. Of course, if Whitewall takes your fancy, come and join in, but I doubt if it's what you initially had in mind.

Our geographical locations are of course irrelevant for purposes of this group, but if it helps, I'm in the UK, Bedfordshire, with an interest in Dark Age history (didn't study it beyond age 13 though) and a tendency towards re-enactment. For more like-minded souls in your general area (London-ish), you might like a look at
a multi-period recreation society I'm in:
or related Yahoo Group

"A bit like the SCA only British and with less fighting" might be a fair description. "The Middle Ages as they should have been" is another. Dressing up, eating nice food, and studying by doing, though mostly at well below degree level. There's role-play involved, too.
