Since everyone says I'm the one with the answers here's some that I totally
made up and are probably only barely valid. ;)  When working on your persona
there is a few facts to keep in mind.  1) Find a time/place that you are
interested in. Notice that I said interested not knowledgeable.  If you like
a certain culture the knowledge will come and it won't even seem like study,
and learning about the people and their culture is a big reason for doing
what we do.  2) Look at the clothes from that particular time/place.  There
is nothing more uncomfortable than strapping yourself into Italian Ren.
clothing while you're thinking how much easier and more comfortable a
T-tunic is.  The opposite also applies (oh that's so nice looking but it
sooo not my time period etc.).  It may seem kind of a shallow way to look
for a persona but what we wear is the single biggest sign of who we are
trying to be.  Budget also comes into play here.  3) Be who you want to be.
The fun of persona play is you get to be that person you always wanted to
be.  Giggling tavern wench, bold pirate, crafty merchant, wandering gypsy,
you name it ;)


Any questions or if you'd like me to haul the library to one of the
get-togethers just let me know.

This is my first greeting to everyone.....


I am not sure what to say because I am so new.  I haven't even decided upon
a character as of yet and I have continuously come up with one reason or
another to not attend any garb nights or get togethers.  I apologize because
I am realizing that I am really missing out on good company.  So I suppose
this is all I have to say til at a later time.



Robin (real name for me)
