- I am a newcomer to the SCA-- I've been to a few events, but have not
settled on a persona yet.
After much time debating and hours of researching various cultures, I
think that I am most inspired by the Heian period in Japan. I have
some information on that period, and research and stitching comes to
me easily enough, but as far as persona development, I haven't the
slightest! I've written stories and the like before, but I don't
really know how it all is done in the SCA.
I suppose I'm writing to beg for a mentor of some sort-- I'd like to
find a name by the next event (I'm in An-Tir and excited to go to the
Barony of Stromgards' founding revel on February 2nd), and start
working on the persona aspect of it along side with researching for
garb that would fit my persona, once it's better fleshed out....
So if anybody would be willing to help a lady select a name (suitable
for the Heian), and share a few pointers on creating a persona (of any
period!), I would be very very greatful! :3

:D The dreaded "jouzo", might as well kill yourself right then and there .;)

sort of flattery.
