Return to the Keep on the Borderlands
Dubricus, the schoolmaster and scribe/scrivener
Dubricus came to the Keep several months ago seeking an adventuring party to join up with. He found no takers, primarily because he insisted any group he joined must take him as a leader. He has since reconsidered, deciding that it’s better to be subtle and let some charismatic fighter be in charge. Dubricus comes from a wealthy noble family but did not bring much wealth with him, being determined to make a name for himself on his own merits. To supplement his cash supplies, he has been working as a scribe and scrivener, drawing up contracts between merchants and the like. Much more to his liking has been his informal school (now formal enough), open to any child who wants to learn how to read and write. His classes are very popular, especially his lectures on history (highly dramatized in the telling), with their invariable digressions in unpredictable directions. Due to the increase in children presence in the school, a word is spreading that Dubricus will soon need an assistant.
