    How Reaver REALLY found Mythic Scribes.

    Well, it wasn't easy. In fact, you could say that it was a roll of the dice.

    I woke up to find myself in a raucous, smoke-hazed and unfamiliar tavern filled with dwarves, orcs, elves, half-giants and humans...I needed to find out where I was and how I had gotten here. Deep down I knew that it wasn't going to be easy.

    Member encounters can be with brazen plagarists or haughty wannabes, thus making it difficult for the party to distinguish each encounter for what it is. (In fact, the encounter could be with a writer only prostituting him / herself as it pleases them, an elderly blogger, or even a goblin.) In addition to the offering of the usual fare, the member is 30% likely to know valuable information, 15% likely to make something up in order to gain a reward, and 20% likely to be, or be with, a thief. You may find it useful to use the sub-table below to see which sort of member encounter takes place:


    00 – 10 Slovenly troll
    11 – 25 Brazen plagarist
    26 – 35 Cheap spammer
    36 – 50 Bored teenager
    51 – 65 Saucy hobbyist
    66 – 75 Blue lotus
    76 – 85 Elder dwarf
    86 – 90 Social butterfly
    91 – 92 Grey sage
    93 – 94 Caged maiden
    95 – 98 Legendary sidekick
    99 – 00

    Hmm.. I think it was Google.

    Or it could have been the Universe directing me to a place filled with mystery, moonshine, and marbles. Cause I've lost mine.

    I was in the middle of writing my first novel. i had read some guides about needing others to read and review my book, in order to improve and complete it. I found this website through the great Google in the sky as i was reading more guides about fantasy writing.

    My wife told me to stop yapping about it and write, and I told her I couldn't do it in a bubble. So I went Footling for it.

    And, wow. Auto-complete turned Googling into Footling? That's whack.

    A close family member suggested it, as we were in the same field at the time.
