I questioned the use of the term "Gong Farmer" because it sounded  
more Asian than European to me, but I think they actually had  
documentation for it. That info may or may not, now be in the  
Florilegum, but I can't remember.

Two other interesting examples of persona play. I doubt I could get  
into the roles this way, at least not by myself, but I'm sure others  
can. I'd love to see more of this sort of persona play.  For those  
who like to be unsettling and unique, this can be just the thing.
