We played a great session of Ars Magica tonight as children living in or near the nearby Castle of Montferrand. The character I played is below - the negatives in all the characteristics are courtesy of childhood - she has very good presence and communication for an eight year old.


Rosette is the talkative and inquisitive daughter of Albert the Steward to Lord Bernard de Montferrand. She seems to know everyone in the Castle's household, from the stable boys to the highest-ranking members of the Noble family - not to mention everything that is going on. She has spent all her life within the walls of the Castle or on short trips to the nearest towns with her father and, unlike many her age, has spent much time engrossed in the goings on of people many years her senior. These people seem willing to indulge her curiosity, answering her questions when they find the time to quench her pestering. When caught being naughty she is adept at talking her way out of the situation and escaping often with little punishment.

The only thing Rosette loves more than talking to people and finding absolutely everything there is to know about them is picking flowers especially red, blue and white ones.
