Poster: "Ed Hopkins" <Ed.Hopkins@MCI.Com>

Philip Jose Farmer wrote a series of science-fiction novels set
on the Riverworld, a planet which had been specially engineered
to consist entirely of riverfront property.  On this planet one
day, every single human being who had ever lived past the age
of five -- from every age from Paleolithic to Nuclear -- found
himself (or herself) inexplicably resurrected, with memories of
a full life on Earth, but in a body in the prime of youth.

I suggest that a society based on the Riverworld concept would
be better than the SCA at accommodating the pre-Medieval and
non-European personas that are currently being discussed within
these lists.
