To some it can be a boon, to others a tool used to control their every move, to others a surprise.
There’s the classic horror storyline of a lawyer bearing news of an unexpected inheritance, but to receive it you must spend the night in a Gothic mansion first.
There’s the fantasy staple of the royal family birthmark which later reveals the orphan as a long lost ruler. Can you come up with a new twist on these tropes, or something completely different?
