Franko sighed, and started to rub his hands. They were sore from writing for the past 3 hours, another investigation of a crime ring. It seemed that anyone who pilfered or did breaking and entering got caught. Working as a scribe in the city of Katapesh, it seemed that crime did not pay. Or at least not some crime.
It was ironic, he thought. Here he was unsure if he was a escaped slave, a slave waiting to be bought, or a free person. He did not ask, because he was afraid of the answer. It appeared that there was no bill of sale in the city, so at least they would not take him away.
Last week, scribbing a statement from a visiting cleric of Andoran, he saw a book titled “On the theory of music and multi-planer creatures, a harmony”. For 3 mineutes he actually had the chance to read it! Oh all the interesting ideas he saw, if only he could have had the time to actually finish it……
He felt his coin pouch, just a few coins, no where near enough to actually buy a book like that. He sighed again. It was so difficult to get ahead in this city. He barely made enough money to feed and shelter. Ink was so expensive! How could he copy books on his own without more money.
He actually was desperate enough to consider the gladiatorial games. He actually started to learn magic from Askart, until he realized that the letter or recommendation was a forgery. Oops. But at least he learned how to stun people with color. Maybe that would be enough to survive. From Askart’s tomes, it seemed that most people could be stuned by the color spray. Maybe he could get a couple of quick victories, and get enough money to get a book or two.
His only other option was to try to get a job with the mercenary guild. I porters life was not for him, but maybe he could get a job as a trainee wizard. He could scribe the scrolls and maybe eek out a profit.
But they laughed at him last time, they said he could not carry his weight..
He was going to have to do something desperate, something awesome, maybe even criminal if he was going to get to those wonderful books….
