Bargains with Death
Here are some ideas I had for •7–9 on the Last Breath move. Some I really like (the Bard’s) and some could probably use a tweak.
Bard – Whenever you learn a secret, you can tell no one, starting with this bargain.
Cleric – Your deity thinks you dead and will no longer answer your prayers. However, Death will. Death is his domain, and you now have Petition: Offering.
Druid – You must kill a wild animal once per week, and burn the carcass. You cannot eat any part of or otherwise make use of the body.
Fighter – Add this bond with a party member chosen by Death:
When the time comes, I must kill __ without hesitation.
Paladin – You must always be on a quest, or praying and cleansing in preparation for a quest, and one of your boons is automatically “Death stayed his hand, but will not do so again.”
Ranger – Death takes your animal companion instead. From this moment forward, animals will shun you and may even attack if they feel pressed. They sense your betrayal.
Thief – If some asks you about a crime, you must confess —whether you are guilty or not.
Wizard – You must burn or otherwise destroy the next scroll or spell book you find, without reading it first. And the third. And the fifth. And the seventh. And so on….
