Part 335: Derik Leaving
Maybe now we won't get crushed by dwarf robots.
Derik Single-Path, who has distinguished himself in many raids, comes before the clan ring and says that he is leaving. "I thank you for raising me and making me a good Orlanthi. Now I must move on, for I have become as strong as I can among a clan of Dragon Pass. I must go out into the world and find new tests for myself, so I can strengthen my powers against the misbegotten raiders of Prax. I ask now for your blessing, before I go."
-Give Derik a parting gift.
-Give him permission to leave.
-Persuade him to stay.
-Sacrifice to the gods to protect Derik on his travels. (Specify a god)
-Give him a parting magical blessing.
Although he is headstrong and not always obedient, the people have come to love his pride and fervor. The more generous we are with him, the happier they will be.
It will be hard to convince him to stay. He knows his destiny is elsewhere.
A lone traveler faces many dangers in untamed Dragon Pass.
When Orlanth began his great journey, many friends came to see him off, wishing him well and giving him their prayers and hopes.
(is still missing out on all the cool events by being injured)
Like a troll coin, he'll be back.
He will need powerful magic to attain his lofty goals. (Sacrifices to the gods count as powerful magic, so he's not just recommending giving Derik our magic)
