Lords of Creation: Ancients of the Void
Someone trying to kill you? Try bribing them! It’s the best way to survive the encounter. Perhaps this killer will listen to reason and form a mutually beneficial arrangement? If you pay a man that wants you dead for your stuff then you can survive and continue gathering more riches while the man guards you and protects you from other murders and is paid in turn, much more than he would have made had he simply killed you and taken all that you had at the time. This will later extend to paying anyone so that they’ll do what you want instead.
