Absolutely. History -- in general -- is an excellent resource for inspiration. Bakker's works are proof of this. Would The Shriah have declared a holy war to reclaim Shimeh if the Muslims weren't in a Jihad to reclaim Jerusalem? Maybe, but not likely. Consider uber-god Tolkien and his comparison to religious figures. Jesus enters the desert where he battles with is own demons, eventually emerging as a cleaner, more divine son of God. Gandalf plummets into the pit of the Balrog in a battle against this more personified demon, eventually emerging as Gandalf the White. view post
