Since most of the citizens of the Empire are illiterate, Scribes are very much in demand. Virtually every government, civil, military, or religious institution requires a large number of Scribes for record keeping and internal communication. There are also public Scribes who make a living writing and reading letters for the common folk. Scribes are well educated and many go on to become Scholars or lawyers.
However, a few tire of reading about the adventures of others and resolve to have one of their own. Also, with their extensive knowledge of other languages, they make excellent translators for foreign expeditions. Still others get sucked into a life of adventure quite by accident; the Old World is a place of uncertain safety afterall. And of course some Wizards and many Priests began their days as Scribes.
