Another Persona Question
- Greetings to the List;
I've read much of what the internet has to offer in the way of persona
development and Edmund Halliday is well on his way to reality for me.
That being said, how does one usually bridge the gap between ones
place in history and ones place in The Knowne World?
Specifically, how do I explain this 16th century english merchant
adventurer living in the kingdom of An Tir?
- Edmund inquires:

courtier of Shah Tahmasp's Court, he is an emissary that was sent to
the lands of Calontir. Unfortunately for him, the caravan of courtiers
he was with left him in these strange, new lands...and Jibra'il has
been forced to adapt to the customs of those around him.

Well, there isn't really a need to since everyone else Edmund will interact
with is also living in the Known World, too. You all just happen to have come
to live in some place that isn't 16th century England or any other actual real
place/time, but it's your home. You wouldn't explain to someone how you came
to live in the town you grew up in if they all grew up and lived there, too,
A merchant adventurer has an easy answer for that question anyway. Your ship
got blown off course and since you don't know where you are, you can't find
your way home. Much simpler than a prosperous tailor's wife from Shrewsbury
trying to explain how she walked out her front door one day and ended up in
Shire of Silver Rylle, East Kingdom
