Alfred Nobel, inventor of dynamite, had a bizarre and life-changing experience. When his brother Ludvig died, a French newspaper printed Alfred’s obituary by mistake. And it called him “the merchant of death.” It also said that Nobel had gotten rich trying to kill more people, and in faster ways. As the story goes, Nobel was so upset by that legacy that he decided to endow the Nobel Prizes.

So. What would your main character’s obituary say?

What would your character think if they saw it prematurely? How would they change their life? What would they remember about their past?
