Preface

Being of that rare breed of traveller both well-travelled and old, I have in my experience the good fortune of encountering many of those our modern sensibilities would deem “rogues”, “treasure-seekers”, or “adventurers”.  Of course, in their parlance they seldom refer to themselves as cutthroats or grave-robbers, preferring the titles of journeyman, wanderer, or for the more chivalrously-minded knight-errant and occasionally pilgrim. Since the text owes its existence to the kind contributions of these individuals, their preferred titles will be how I refer to them within the text.

But enough about nomenclature. In my journeys with these strange and often eclectic individuals I have discovered many a common folk practice or superstition, which on some occasions I have seen fit to record for both the edification of the curious and for their supposed benevolent properties. Within this book then I have composed the fruits of some threescore and five years of wanderlust, now presented for your purview and consideration. It is my hope that, through these texts, you may gain a small window into the lives of those so often placed without the purview of society, and thereby a measure of sympathy for their oft-neglected fates. I have the honour to be

Your obedient servant,

T. A. Goether

Hello can I hack your repunk post on fkr discord ?

This is really cool! I love how unique and memorable each snippet of lore is. I can easily use this companion for an adventure filled with travel, or as additional flavor for an NPC, a settlement or even entire land the heroes may encounter.

Even if each superstition is a few sentences at most, they're imaginative enough that you can almost glimpse a fully-realized world behind it. Perhaps my favorite are the beasts said to prowl beneath the earth...I'd be horrified to encounter the Beast Of Many Mouths in the dark.

Thank you so much for your thoughts! The little "bestiary" was indeed very fun... Perhaps I should make a little expanded booklet...
