- The player is approached in Necrom by a named Ancestor Ghost (an NPC with a ghost shader effect; this is implemented by giving them the ability ghost_ability, a 50% chameleon effect).
- The Ancestor feels like they cannot adequately advise their descendants because their thoughts mostly revolve around a love affair they had when they were still alive. They moved on and married into an existing family, but after death they still remember their affair's face better than that of their children.
- The PC is askes to first scribe, then deliver a scroll to a named NPC in a given city.
- When travelling to the city, the PC learns through dialogue that nobody knows that person. Either through speaking to a sufficiently bureocratic person (temple priest?) or random chance they learn that the person has died in the second era, but a descendant is known to live in another town.
- The (briefly bewildered) descendant is approached, the scroll is delivered.
- Thze named Ancestor is told that the scroll has been delivered. Thanks are given (along with reputation? or directions to a cache for bad times the Ancestor hid during their life?).
- The named Ancestor is disabled and a generic non-hostile Ancestor Ghost is spawned in their place.
