"WARRIORS! REAR HOOVES APART! NO TALKING. Sun guide us all."
He paces slowly behind the sweating warriors, letting his steps echo across the training yard
"Any volunteers to be first?"
"Good. I did say no talking. I'll just start here then."
He comes to an abrupt halt, lifts his hammer, and as a loud gasp is heard along the line as each warrior fears they were picked, he smashes a nearby rock, then tosses the hammer back to you
"And that concludes our test. You all pass. Willingness to sacrifice anything and everything for your cause is an important aspect of a paladin. And you all stood unflinching in the face of such a sacrifice.
Now go and rest. You deserve it. Dismissed."
The nine leave, some wobbling a little from the adrenaline rush.
After they are gone he turns back to you
"Another one down it seems.">>212788
A bunch of very pale paladins are returning from the training grounds at least.>>212789
"You know what else is honest? A rock. Never heard a rock lie in all my years. That doesn't make it smart though.">>212780
He gets down for a good look
"I can barely believe my luck… I hope y-you like this…"
He skittishly starts licking you
