Meeting of Rogues
        Plot: How Zaknafein first met Jarlaxle. Includes various conversations, plotting, and general behaving like high-school boys.
        Disclaimer: Nobody in here belongs to me. They are all copyrighted to R A Salvatore and Wizards of the Coast. I am not stealing, just... borrowing.

        Zaknafein stood quietly just inside the gates of Melee-Magthere, the drow school of warriors that was to be his home for the next few years. He watched the other young males talking, greeting each other, some even laughing, and knew that it was all a sham. They would all be poised to kill each other within a few days. And then we’ll all be carted off to serve the ambitions of some vile, conniving Matron for the rest of our lives, which won’t be very long anyway. Wonderful, he thought sarcastically.

Rehab for Roleplayers - Part 1
Welcome to Rehab for Roleplayers, a series of articles aimed at helping roleplayers more successfully make the transition into writing fiction.
Part One: Your Syntax Has Been Eaten A Grue
The term 'syntax' pertains to the rules of grammar and sentence construction in any given language.
I'm starting this series with a discussion of problematic syntax because passively constructed sentences and/or wrenched and unnatural sentence structure are the number one signpost which will identify a writer as having spent a lot of time in the RP world.
Wrenched or passive syntax is also the number one 'crime against fiction' committed by the average roleplayer while attempting to cross over into fiction writing.
I'll now explain the difference between the active and passive "voice" in sentences, and why active sentences are far more desirable in fiction.
An active sentence makes the subject of a sentence the focus of action.  A passive sentence focuses instead on the verbs,

Jarlaxle's Journal
Twenty Things I Learned at Melee-Magthere
- compiled by Jarlaxle of Bregan D’aerthe

1. All the monsters you heard stories about do exist.
2. Betting pools on who will depose the current Matron are only fun if she never finds out.
3. Don’t talk to the little voices; they’re spies for the teachers.
4. The new words you learn actually make the priestesses very angry when used to describe them.
5. You can kill goblins. You can kill elves. You can even kill other drow. But woe to you if you step on a spider!
6. Putting worms in an unpopular teacher’s underwear isn’t just mean, it earns you extra credit from his rival teachers!
7. Pay attention to your weird dreams – there is a slim chance that they really did happen.
8. ‘Color’ is not a commonly accepted concept among drow.
9. ‘Dead’ enemies do not always stay dead. But they do stay enemies.
10. There are some things money can’t buy; intelligence is one of these. Good look
