    Medieval England CAF!

    You are a minor baroness of a small but productive farming village in England in 1286. You live with your husband, the baron, your children, your eldest son's wife and their maidservant, as well as your wet nurse, cook, scullery maid, stable boy and your husband's book keeper.

    Use this die: http://www.bgfl.org/bgfl/custom/reso...dice/eight.htm

    Roll the die for the amount of children you have:
    Roll the die once for each, to find out the gender:
    1. boy
    2. girl
    3. boy
    4. boy
    5. gir
    6. girl
    7. boy
    8. girl

    To determine age, roll the die again for each, and add 12 to all even numbers, and add 8 to all odd numbers.

    Choose first names from this list: http://www.infernaldreams.com/names/...al/England.htm
    All female MIDDLE names MUST be either: Agnes, Isabella, Margery or Joan.
    All male FIRST names MUST be either: John, Geoffrey, Richard or Henry.
    You can repeat names as many times as you like-- this is not uncommon in medieval life.

    For you and your husband, choose given names from this list: http://www.themiddleages.net/people/names.html
    For your title, choose from this list of baronies: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...age_of_England
    Your name and title are:
    Your husband's name and title are:

    Your wet nurse is: FN is same as eldest daughter's middle, MN is your choice from http://www.infernaldreams.com/names/...al/England.htm
    Your scullery maid is: FN is your choice from the list, MN is a feminization of a man's name on the medieval list.
    Your cook's name is: FN is some variation on the name 'Margaret,' MN is the closest medieval name to your REAL first name.

    For the following names, roll the die for FN and MN-- there are separate lists for male and female. If you roll the same number twice, just roll it again.
    Your daughter-in-law's name is:
    Her maidservant's name is:
    The stable boy's name is:
    Your husband's book keeper's name is:

    1. Simon or Sybilla
    2. Edwin or Eva
    3. Arnald or Amice
    4. Gerard or Gundrea
    5. Henry or Hawisa
    6. Philip or Petronilla
    7. Ralph or Richolda
    8. John or Joanna

    Your daughter-in-law, ----, has just given birth to a baby girl!
    The baby will be named after its maternal grandparents, Lord Gilbert Eudon, the Baron of Muncy, and Lady Osgyth Estrill, the Baroness of Muncy. Choose from this list: http://www.infernaldreams.com/names/...al/England.htm

    Your husband has also found a perfect match for his granddaughter! She will be betrothed to the son of knight in good social standing with the king; he may receive a healthy parcel of land soon. Just one other thing: your granddaughter's future husband is [your own age] years older than her, so he should be well established by the time they're married. Congratulations!
