"Pagan Play 1.0 is my first Kaleidoscope scheme. I
discovered Kaleidoscope two weeks or so before writing this, using the
skeleton of Scott Naness' "Copland 7" as a starting point. The
trash icon is based on and inspired by the delightful trash icons of Doug
Quinn, specifically the "MacBeth, Act 4, Scene 1" icon, which I
used as a starting point for my trash icon. Pagan Play 1.0 is the basic
scheme, with Pagan Play Lite a modified version with more standard Apple
Menu icon and folders.
"The folders on full-strength Pagan Play 1.0 are a little odd,
in that the center point is "unmasked." You must click on the
solid portion of the folder's "book " because the front seal is
invisible and, well, look closely. You'll see. This may take some getting
used to and can be modifed easily with either Designer's Studio or
ResEdit. You may wish to substitute another folder icon entirely.
If you come up with a gorgeous one, please let me know, as I'm not too
attached to the current one, invisible sigil or no.
"I tried the scheme with a number of background patterns, and include a
handful of icons here by the grace of folks noted below. Any of them
would make a good starting point or a folder substitute.

Be sure to register all of yours! Thanks also to Greg Landweber for the
delight which is Kaleidoscope. Be sure to register yours! Thanks to Tom
Connolly and Dorian Weisel for the amazing time-saver of Designer's Studio
(be sure to register yours!) and to the following folks for letting me include
their fine icons. Specifically I got permission from:
I don't know who came up with the book icon, and I've seen it in a variety
of places without credit being given. Should the original artist read this,
- Talos Tsui for "witch hat" from his Icon Factory collection
- Gedeon Maheux for "scroll" from his Icon Factory
collection of Xena icons "Action Pack - vol. 2," and for
"The Moon" from his "Space Icons" collection. It is
tough to make a good icon of the moon! Gedeon's is the good one.
- The desktop pattern "mibdt" is from Noel Green of
one of many, many cool desktop patterns she has done.
- The Witches' Voice
for the darker, altar startup screen.
The full Pagan Play folder includes:
- Pagan Play 1.0, the main scheme
- Pagan Play Lite, a semi-closeted version of the scheme
- Icons "scroll," " witch hat," "The Moon,"
"anonymous book " and "PP Abstract Moon"
- The "mibdt " desktop clipping as one sample background pattern
- One light "StartupScreen," to be dropped into your system folder (or removed)
- A darker, altar screen (you can only have one "StartupScreen " loaded at a time)
- A document "TextReadMe.html"
