Strange commitments--

Well, the Unitarian Pagan group at my church is running an elaborate Halloween ritual, on, of all days, Halloween. The ritual is Egyptian in style and intended to be a journey into the underworld, an Orphic journey, as it were.

They're very excited about it, and I wish them well--well enough to offer to help. I'll be the storyteller, and relay the story of Isis and Osiris.

This should be fun. I really can't screw it up to anything resembling a point where Pagans are upset with the quality, as, forgive me, pagans are insanely forgiving when it comes to people who try hard.

I have to nail the story elements down in my head to the point where I don't need a cheat sheet. I should probably get one, just jot down the major plot points in case I forget where I was.

I haven't done any real story-telling for years, not since we used to play Werewolf LARP. That was always a blast, I loved playing Galliards--but it's been a while! I'm a little upset that there won't be any recording devices around, tho, I never get to see myself performing on those rare occasions when I do.

I'm nervous about the story, though. It's long and complex and has lots of good bits.

If any Austinites want to attend, info's easily available. I hope it will be a good event--the leader's skill at ritualifying is getting better and better.
