I think about Death a lot, but especially this morning since I can't feel my legs. It occurs to me that, if any of us die, the other forum members might not even know, we might have some things that we wish to leave to other forum members, and we might have deaths that cry to be avenged. The purpose of this thread is to leave instructions you wish to be carried out in the event of your death.
When I was young, my father's throne was usurped as a result of a particularly nasty bit of palace intrigue. I was taken to the deep woods to be killed, but the assassin who took me didn't have the heart for the task, so he left me there to die from exposure. Fortunately, I was found by the woodland squirrels. After I defeated their champion in single combat, they made me their king. I remain King of the Squirrels to this very day, even though I was eventually taken in by the wolves and, from there, made my way back to the world of men.
In the event of my death, I want this title to descend to Pete. Don't worry, it's mostly ceremonial these days. However, you will be expected to be the Keeper of the Squirrel Scroll, which contains the Thirty-Six Plans of The Path of The Squirrel (most of which concern different styles of running away), and The Cask of Ancient Winters, WHICH MUST NOT BE OPENED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, LEST DIRE CONSEQUENCES ENSUE.
So, if squirrels ever come to you bearing a scroll and a little box, you'll know that I'm dead. I hope you take your duties seriously.
