When you cast this spell, you must tell a riddle.

The riddle must be unique, you must know the answer, and no living person other than yourself can have ever solved it. You then tell a target creature within range that shares a language with you. That creature must answer the riddle. If they fail to answer correctly, you gain their truename. If the creature guesses it correctly, they gain knowledge of your truename. If the creature does not wish to relinquish its truename, they can bargain for something else, such as their firstborn, a mountain of treasure, or the truename or someone else. If they fail to deliver on this promise within a fortnight (14 days), they are cursed as per the bestow curse spell, and it cannot be broken short of fulfilling the terms of the bargain, guessing the riddle correctly before the fortnight is over, or a wish spell.
