As one who is developing a persona as a German Minnesinger, I would
dread the criteria that would be set up, or those people who would
have to determine whether I knew what I was talking about or not.
I also would prefer not to have to learn things about which my persona
would not know, because I just don't have the time.  And yes, the
word "Bard" has no meaning to me, although I will probably just treat
it as the english translation of the german word for a general entertainer
(which escapes me for the moment.  I will have to work on my german
someday soon here, and perhaps even study some older german while I'm
at it ;).

Anyone out there have a german persona?

      I haven't decided yet, so I'll just use my modern name for now)
