I think that corpora doesn't allow for aging.
I joined the SCA in the spring of 1985. I decided that it would be easy
for me to identify with my persona if I always knew what the date was
for him. So "Kein MacEwan" came to Ansteorra in the spring of 1585. He
has been here for 11 years. In 4 years I will celebrate the end of the
millenium while Kein is celebrating the end of the 16th century. In 3
more years, Kein will celebrate the ascension of a Scot to the throne
I think that I will have earned the right to play out of period. Just
Kein (who doesn't noramally talk about himself in the third person)
