Ditto!! More period stuff!! _Major_ revels are most period, think 
about all the stuff folk did in period to party!! As a 
herald...banners, shields, tabbards, devices and badges and 
livery...oh my....er, oops, wrong movie. No cars! No jeans on the 
field, or modern athletic footwear, no obvious plastic armor...WHEE! 
Need I go on? Most everything modern we use can be disguised, hidden, 
or a period substitute made... Our middle name is Creative (tm).
