Famous Adventurer is the headmaster or headmasters of the Famous Adventurer's Correspondence School. It is apparently a title of profession that applies to any number of individuals who run the school, and each are writers of several Correspondence Courses and Travel Guides.
He may even be the one known as Famous Explorer.
The Famous Adventurer which Hero met, had never been to Shapeir, but planned visit in his future adventuring. Though at least one Famous Adventurer actually did visit Shapeir, to write the Famous Adventurer's Correspondence School: Advanced Adventuring Course on Shapeir.
The current Famous Adventurer planned to adventuring again in the spring, and offered allow the Hero to become the next Famous Adventurer in charge of the school.
Behind the scenesEdit
F.A. is the headmaster of the School for Heroes game.
There may infact be more than one Famous Adventurer. The two early Handbooks from QFG1 and QFG2 are said to be from the Famous Advcenterers' (plural). F.A. in QFG5 also says when he leaves to go on his adventures again, that Hero can take on position of Famous Adventurer in his place. The F.A. in QFG5 had never been to Silmaria. However the writer/s of the Handbook for QFG2 has apparently there and is an expert on the land.
Another interpretation to the 'Famous Adventurers" is that one who joins the school becomes training to become a "famous adventurer"... In QFG3 one of the narrator's lines is that Hero is himself a "famous explorer" for having taken the Famous Explorer's Correspondence Course.
