Introduction/Persona

I am Mistress Amy Webbe, and I am a 1570s Gloucestershire resident. As a Middle Class widow (a rather unfortunate accident with a cart), I assist my stepson in managing his late father's mercer business. I spend much time embroidering, and considering whether or not to seek a new husband. I was raised in and still follow the Roman church, but I prefer to do so privately, as being a "Papist" is beginning to affect the business opportunities available in Southern England, and I have no desire to endanger the family business.


In reality, I am married to Lord Erhart von Stuttgart, and I reside in the The Shire of Barren Sands
