Note 2018-06-05: Eldritch Realms has been renamed to Magonomia
I found a lovely web site called Life in Elizabethan England: A Compendium of Common Knowledge 1558-1603, subtitled Elizabethan Commonplaces for Writers, Actors, and Re-Enactors. Just the thing for creating a sense of atmosphere in your Eldritch Realms games! Many thanks to the author, Maggie Pierce Secara, for sharing her work online. The site is also available as a book.
