Taking the Black

Maester Lucas stands before you with Derryk. "The war in Westeros spreads every day. We can no longer risk keeping a bastard of King Robert's here."



"What do you suggest we do with Derryk, maester?"

The boy steps forward. "With your permission, my [lord/lady], I'm willing to take the black, and join the Night's Watch on the Wall."

"If this is truly what you wish, Derryk. You'll always have a place here."

"Are you afraid, boy? You're under my protection."

"That's just it, my [lord/lady]. I can't endanger your house. Let me go north and join the Night's Watch. There are plenty of bastards there."

"For the good of my house, I must agree. You will leave for the Wall immediately."
