SCA Persona Worksheet
This worksheet was developed by a former Minister of Arts and Sciences in the Dominion of Myrkfaelinn, in the Kingdom of Aethelmearc. The list of questions is designed to help you get a better handle on some of the more practical things that your persona might know. It is definitely towards western personas, but hopefully non-westerners will find some use to it as well.
