Tra-la-la. I am Mr. SomeRandomWriter. Or am I Mrs. SomeRandomWriter...? It doesn't really matter. I love to ride in my boat. Would you care to join me?
— First interaction with SomeRandomWriter

SomeRandomWriter takes the role of The River Person in FandomTale.

SomeRandomWriter  is a hooded figure who provides free transportation to Snowdin, Waterfall, and Hotland on their wooden raft. Rlopkid23 can ride their boat to any of the locations specified above if they reach Hotland on any route. During the trip, SomeRandomWriter has a list of messages they can speak at random.

Despite occasionally hitting rough currents in the water, SomeRandomWriter never loses their balance, and If Rlopkid23 attempts to move SomeRandomWriter, he will find them to be immovable.

Appearance Edit

SomeRandomWriter is shown only as a figure with a red hooded cloak, and both their gender and the type of monster they are is unknown.

If Rlopkid23 were to attempt to look under their cloak, he would see total blackness, which would be constant even in the situation that a lighting source were held up to SomeRandomWriter.
