Re: [Authentic_SCA] Re: Persona Development
- I've enjoyed very much this thread on persona development and learned a lot, too. Right now I'm trying to come up with a persona. I'm interested in English legal and political history (feudalism, the early history of the common law and the early parliaments) of the second half of the 13th century, roughly the period near the end of the reign of Henry III and the beginning of the reign of Edward I. My problem is in picking a persona that would fit that interest most closely while at the same time fitting into the social structure of the SCA. Who in that period would be most interested in these developments? Ordinary farmers, merchants, etc. would be aware of those things but wouldn't necessarily be concerned with them on a day-to-day basis. How about lawyers, judges, stewards? I would love to get some suggestions from list members.

Even though I'm an SCA lord, my primary persona is a 16th century
Englishman who is not. He/I regretfully left the wondrous realm of
Queen Elizabeth and am now living in a foreign land.
