My name is Rudeus Greyrat. I enjoy this list of interesting facts, so I am going to list a few more interesting facts about me. I am sixteen years old, which makes me the same age as my cousin Elinalise. That means that I am not allowed to get married for another eight years, but I have never found anything all that interesting about being sixteen. I enjoy reading books. In fact, I like them a little too much. If I read one book too many, it feels like my brain begins to shrivel up. It gets so that I can only think in short bursts, and I start making stupid mistakes, like getting lost in my own house. When I was little, I always wanted to be an adventurer. I was convinced that if I could just find my way to a dungeon and defeat some monsters, I would become a hero. It turns out that dungeons don't tend to hire adventurers who are sixteen years old. Anyway, please enjoy this list:
