I’ve been thinking about changing my persona for some time now. If I change it I will likely go Norse, though 13/14th century is also a possibility. To that end I created a pro & con table which you can see below. I’m still undecided but at lease I can see things a little clearer.
*Garb is easier to make
*Beads!!! – this only applies to Norse but I love the Norse treasure necklaces
*Garb is more comfortable
*Garb takes less fabric
*Tent is much easier to deal with than the round tent appropriate to my current persona – this is mostly for going Norse, I’m not sure what would be appropriate for 13/14th century
*Sources for persona research seem to be easier to find
*Religion isn’t as confusing
*Time period isn’t as interesting to me
*Name change – I really like my surname and it is only found in very late period
*Heraldry not appropriate for Norse – doesn’t mean I can’t be a herald but display become tricky
*The research I’ve done for my current persona would be irrelevant – I could still use it for an A&S project if I wanted to
*Need to redo persona story – this is actually the least of my worries since I was already rethinking the authenticity of my current persona story.
So, there it is, any thoughts?
