After Sayge tells your fortune, you will receive a buff depending on the answers you gave.

Guide to Answering Sayge

Here is a chart of the buffs with answers you need to give to get them.

Sayge presents scenarios, as follows:

A. "You have been tasked by your liege to guard his fields of corn from poachers and theives. One night, on patrok, you stumble across a haggard man in thread-bare clothing stealing corn from the field. You quickly confront him, and he immediately begs for his life. He claims he is stealing corn to feed his family since the lord of the land - your liege - demands too much in taxes. Your liege is indeed known from his harsh taxes throughout the land. Make your choice."

Choices:

1. I slay the man on the spot as my liege would expect me to do, as he nothing more than a thief and a liar. (GO TO SCENARIO 'B')

2. I turn over the man to my liege for punishment, as he has broken the law of the land and it is my sworn duty to enforce it. (GO TO SCENARIO 'C')

3. I confiscate the corn he has stolen, warn him that stealing is a path toward doom and destruction, but I let him go to return to his family. (GO TO SCENARIO 'D')

4. I allow the man to take enough corn to feed his family for a couple of days, encouraging him to leave the land. (GO TO SCENARIO 'E')


Scneario B. "You are the sworn executioner for your liege. A man has been sent to you for execution as a traitor of the liege and your people. You know this individual as a close, virtuous friend who mysteriously vanished one day. You also know that the man's crimes for which he was convicted supposedly caused the deaths of many innocent civilians. Upon seeing you he begs for his life, claiming he was framed by a higher authority. Make your choice."

1. (+10% Damage) I execute him as per my liege's instructions, and do it in such a manner that he suffers painfully before he dies as retribution for his crimes against my people.

2. (+10% Magic Resistance) I execute him as per my liege's instructions, but doing so in as painless of a way as possible. Justice must be served, but I can show some compassion.

3. (+10% Armor) I risk my own life and free him so that he may prove his innocence. If I can, I'll help him in any way.


Scenario C. "You are on a diplomatic mission for your liege to a cruel country that is currently at war with your's. The war has been costly on both sides. Your mission is to secure a peace that is honorable to both peoples. At a diplomatic dinner, you overhear the ruler of the opposing land viciously insult your benevolent liege. You are fairly certain the ruler meant to say it out of your earshot, but nonetheless he has besmirched your liege's honor. Make your choice."

1. (+10% Intellect) I confront the ruler on his malicious behavior, upholding my liege's honor at the risk of any future diplomacy.

2. (+10% Spirit) I not-so-quietly ignore the insult, hoping to instill a fear in the ruler that he may have gaffed. I then inform my liege of the insult when I return.

3. (+10% Magic Resistance) I quietly ignore the insult. I will not tell my liege, as I am to secure a peace at all costs. It's only an insult - not a declaration of war.


Scenario D. "Your brother seeks to join the ranks of the prestigious military order you are already a part of. While you are sure of his commitment and loyalty, his talent and ability to perform the arduous tasks of the order is what you question. While you are not certain he will be able to rise to the challenge of the order - putting himself and others in dangers - you are certain that your word alone would allow him in or keep him out. Make your choice."

1. (+10% Stamina) I would speak against my brother joining the order, rushing a permanent breach in our relationship. He would be a danger to himself and those around him, and that is too great a risk hoping he would improve over time.

2. (+10% Strength) I would speak for my brother joining the order, potentially risking the safety of the order. I could help him with the order's regimens, and I'd have faith in his ability to adapt and learn.

3. (+10% Agility) I would create some surreptitious means to keep my brother out of the order. I can keep him out without him being any bit wiser, thereby saving our familial bonds.


Scenario E. "You alone have defeated a terrible beast that has been ravaging the countryside, taking its ear as a trophy. You later learn that your liege had offered a reward for the beast's deat, and that a kind but destitute knight who you know is trying to support a family by meager means claims the beast's kill as his own. You have no real need for money yourself, but you know that the destitute knight is lying for his own personal gain. Make your choice."


1. (+10% Intellect) I would show my liege the beast's ear and claim the beast's death as my own, taking the reward for my own use. It is wrong to claim a deed as your own that someone else in fact did.

2. (+10% Spirit) I would show my liege the beast's ear and claim the beast's death as my own - after all, I did slay it. I would then offer some of the reward to the destitute knight to help his family.

3. (+10% Armor) I would remain silent about the kill and allow the knight to claim the reward to aid his family.

NOTE: Upon entering TK raid instance this buff disappeared for me and some others. Be warned it may do it for others, but more testing is needed. Tested in SSC - Buff vanishes non entry. Seems like a non-raid buff. Possibly works for PVP. (Buff also vanishes when entering ICC.)

Sayge is an homage to the classic Ultima series of role playing games. In Ultima IV, V, VI and IX, the game began with a meeting with The Gypsy fortune teller, and your answers to her moral dilemmas determined the stats your character would begin with.
