You have the clothes, you have the shoes, you have the pavilion. At events you hide your 21st century amenities, and refrain from discussing modern work and sports. But what do you do to get into, and stay in, persona? Refraining from obvious modernity is one thing; playing in persona is something else. How do you find your pre-16th century self? Does your household, war band, or local branch teach classes, hold workshops or host events where in-persona play is practiced and encouraged? What tips or tricks do you use to keep yourself in the right mindset?
Share your knowledge (of approximately 200 words) by February 7, and it may be included in the second Quarter 2015 issue of Tournaments Illuminated.
