- My Story Is...
How the Followers of The Wandering Writer came to be is largely unknown. Many stories exist about how they came to be, but the truth has been lost to history, except to The Wandering Writer themselves.
The Followers worship an entity known as The Wandering Writer, a nigh-omnipotent being who is said to be the manifestation of thoughts and ideas in a physical form. The Wandering Writer is not their actual name, more like one of the most common titles among the many they hold. The Wandering Writer is considered an eccentric figure who can take on many appearances, and who love stories, knowledge, creativity, and freedom. Because of this, The Followers preach these concepts of creativity, knowledge, and freedom, and try to get others to follow these concepts as well. The Wandering Writer is also usually pacifistic, and as such The Followers try their best to be as well, unless they deem otherwise necessary. The Followers usually consist of Artisans, Scholars, and Bards.
