"So Tell Me..."

"In a room sit three great men, a king, a priest, and a rich man with his gold. Between them stands a sellsword, a little man of common birth and no great mind. Each of the great ones bids him slay the other two. ‘Do it,' says the king, ‘for I am your lawful ruler.' ‘Do it,' says the priest, ‘for I command you in the names of the gods.' ‘Do it,' says the rich man, ‘and all this gold shall be yours.' So tell me- who lives and who dies?"
- George R.R. Martin

  1. If I'm the sellsword, the rich man dies. The gold is mine. The king and the priest can do their own dirty work - I'm gone!
