Tidyr Zuin

Tidyr Zuin is a writer whose true-to-life stories of his previous (mis-)adventures failed to sell any copies. He largely blames this on the fact the book was harshly panned by critics as being entirely unbelievable. Desperate to be published (and pay back a favour to the Halfling Mafia) he has embarked on a journey of the realms to create a Traveller's Guide (and avoid having his kneecaps broken). Zuin keeps several autographed copies of his book with him, stored in his handy haversack, to give to people whose company he enjoys as a (dubious) gift.
