7631Re: [SCA Newcomers] Hello from a "newbie"
- Sep 18, 2005Lots of people seem to pick one persona, but wear
clothes (try to keep one culture and time period per
outfit, but other wise it's all good) from other
cultures and even time periods. It's one of those
handy things about the SCA, just because you're 12th
century french doesn't mean you can wear mongolian
garb or 15th cent english just because you want to. A
persona is just your primary emphasis. Some people do
research multiple personas, but it's kind of hard to
keep multiple names (especially the names) and
personas straight most of the time.
