I thought I would spend a minute and explain why I named this forum what I did.

It's been theorized that Merlin from the Arthurian legends was actually a powerful Druid who was simply a messenger.  He would bring news from all over to Arthur, or from Arthur all over to others.

So, thus the name.... If The Merlin is The Messenger, it is a bit better to call him The Merlin here is what I felt was in line with the theme of the site.  "Kind of pagan-y and magick-y without falling into the kitsch of most sites like this."

I think the aspect of Merlin that you mention is well-represented in Sword in the Stone, where he is depicted as having travelled backward and forward in time, drawing knowledge from any source he can, and passing it on to Wart/Arthur.

That and much more.  I was and still am an avid believer in Camelot, which of course includes Merlin.
