• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

File:Robin-Hobb 2529.gif

Robin Hobb, alias Megan Lindholm, is a writer of Low Fantasy novels, usually grouped in trilogies and revolving around an elaborate Myth Arc with political themes. She started out writing as Megan Lindholm, writing mostly Sword and Sorcery fare, although slightly more down to earth than usual, and occasionaly dabbling in Science Fiction. When writing Assassin's Apprentice, the first book of the Farseer trilogy, she recognized that she was writing in a different slice of the genre, and changed her pen name to reflect this.

Rather infamously not keen on Fanfic, as expressed in her well-known fan fiction rant, although she's okay with Fan Art.
