King Tut: Sacred Icon of the Restoration Revelation

There are no two ways about it- King Tut is an international superstar.

Live Action Role Play or Live Action Ritual Programming?

If I were to create a new religion, I'd do so as a performance art exercise. Congregants would be told from the start that this was all fiction, it was all art.
