Life… is strength. This is not to be contested; it seems logical enough. You live; you affect your world. But is it what you need? You are… different inside. This woman lives and has strength of a sort. She lost her parents to plague, her husband to war, but she persevered. Her farm has prospered, her name is respected and her children are fed and safe. She lived as she thought she should. And now she is dead. Her land will be divided, her children will move on, and she will be forgotten. She lived a good life, but she had no power; she was a slave to death. I wonder if you are destined to be forgotten. Will your life fade in the shadow of greater beings?

Tried to introduce the classic RPG Baldur’s Gate to my girlfriend. Loaded it up and saw this little gem of a quote from Friedrich Nietzsche. My mind ticked over for a while and I realised that 13 year old me thought that Friedrich Nietzsche was just an in-game character along the lines of Elminster or Gorion :/
