Re: Persona Development
I gave a very brief class on persona development when I was a chatelaine and found(for me) was the questionnaire(handed out prior to the class, so they could research online) and discussing "who" I was, it gave people more of an idea of exactly what I was doing/looking at. I (at the time) was a Venetian noblewoman who was a widow and knew very little of the workings of the outside world, because at the time frame I had picked, I needed to know very little except the running of the household. I also had a few of the folks that had played for a long time explain themselves. That's the fun of the game, a person chooses how much or how little they want to know. I hope this helps you at least a little bit.

We are going to meet 10 minutes before court and the participants will choose a 'winner' for the day. This is a first time thing and I don't know if anyone else is interested. I am going to be talking it up on our local Yahoo Groups to see if there is interest.
