The Game Master stares at you with a crooked smile on his face, waiting for your reaction. Your dice roll has made you the person to act next. You consider what the intimidating beast has offered the group. Although in your real life you may decide that the offer is not worth the risk, your character is much more brave than you are. You stand up tall and confront the centaur, 'We accept your offer, and have faith that we can solve the riddle! Speak.'
