Nor I!

I just wanted a very basic background scenario for TAKE - 
nothing detailed. What I just do not want is for something 
like another 'Ill Bethisad' to develop from WHAT(L), RHTAL 
or whatever.

If one or two individuals want to develop this Hellenic 
alternative time-line (ATL) further, then fair enough.  I 
see no objection at all to different, contradictory 
developments - as long each  ATL is clearly distinguished. 
What I really, really do not want is one single 
WHAT(L)/RHATL in which disparate developments are somehow 
fudged together.

Let each cook (or small group of cooks) cook their own 
particular dish.  Let us not have too many cooks spoiling 
one ill-tasting broth!
