A humble poster is hung up in Storm's Landing tavern.

I, Lazarus, seeker of truths, am in need of help.

I've recently acquired a large auction box. Part of which was a book filled with some kind of riddle language.
Whoever wrote it, I can tell you I have managed to translate most of it, although that did not make me that much wiser.
However, the book contained a single name, on the last page. A clue as to who I should seek out if I wish to know more about the subject that the book was on, I'm sure.

The person I am looking for has the following letters in their name:

U L E D B F O E

The only word these letters could make up is the word 'befouled', but that does not make any sense in the context the word was in.
It has got to be a name of sorts.
Since the D was made capital in the book, I believe the person's name starts with the D.
However, I have been unable to find any such name in historical records in any of the few libraries that remain in our lands.

Help me solve this mystery. If you know the name that these letters make up, send your reply to my office in Veraci and I shall reward you a hundred radiants for the effort!

Sincerely,

Lazarus.




OOC: I got this book via the recent auction of Ayda and have been intrigued by it eversince.
I'd like to continue the RP this one book has brought to me so far. A mere item, but I love how books can set a character on a wild chase.
So, help me solve this mystery and let us hope the person is not inactive, banned or just gone!
It would at least be dope to find the actual name behind it :)

8 letters with 1 leading character fixed gives us 7! possibilities, or 5040 possible combinations total. Since the E's are interchangeable their positions are interchangeable and total space is reduced to 2520 possible names.

Add in the possibility of there being a character shift

Exactly! Hence why I thought perhaps someone somewhere knows a person whose name starts with a D and they recognize some letters! :)

It looks familiar but I cant put a finger on it. I'm glad you got something that sparked your interest from the boss though! :D
