I’m sure we did at some point. We played a lot of angles.

I don't think I had pulled together much of that research until about 2007 anyway, after we were banned.  The assumption was Eris was just Eris and since there were few in the way of classical references to her, Thornley and Hill were right in saying the Greeks didn't worship her.  Discovering otherwise took a bit of (metaphorical) digging through some fairly antique texts.

We should have pushed that more on TCC and MW.

At TCC they freely acknowledged that Wicca is utterly made up.  CA even wrote a poorly-executed monologue on it.

It's the '9th generation Strega" that had me rolling.
I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, shattered underpance lies,
With blown elastic, and exploded back,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Doktor Howl, Spag of Spags:
Look on my ass, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

Isn't that a bloodline from Vampire: Masquerade?

Yeah, but have you checked out ACTUAL REALITY recently?

It's ridiculous.

Well yeah, that's why I had to come rushing back to PD slowly. The FutureTMis happening now and we're living the time of our lives.
