Introduction

Lady Ysemay Sterlyn, OM.

http://ysemay.wikispaces.com/Welcome

Persona

I am passionate about research and trying new things. I always have some project in the works. When I am water bearing on the field, or running a tourney, I can usually be found wearing 15th century French working class garb. When I am supporting my husband, I wear 14th century English. When I want to "dress up," I am often in 16th century German. However, I also enjoy viking and am planning to venture into the exotic wilds of India.
