For this one, you must convince a dying knight to pass the legacy on to you.
PASS (any gender, mid teens to late thirties)
Yes, I have done what I have done. And I shall leave your side. And I want you to give me the powers.
Sir there is honor in this. I will persuade you. Please lend me your ear one last time:
'Tis true, you are not dying on the battlefield.
'Tis true you are not dying under the claws of a beast.
You are dying in the wood, poisoned by your own servant.
But think on it.
Pass along the powers and I shall use them as you have never used them. I am ready to be the greatest warrior in the land. And I shall become a ruler... far in quality above our present tyrant. Pass me the powers and you will be changing the kingdom for good. What an honor. What an opportunity.
Your last breaths approach. Make them sweet.
