14. Acquisition: Hero gains magical item

Description

Symbol: F

The hero now acquires an item of some kind, often magical and usually being given by the donor as reward for passing the test. This may be potion, a weapon, and so on. The reward may also be more mundane, such as help from others or critical knowledge, but nevertheless is essential in helping the hero in completing the quest.

Example

In Star Wars, Obi-Wan teaches Luke about the Force and the Light-saber.

Discussion

The gaining of this reward justifies the trials of the testing and proves that the hero is worthy. It also gives hope for the future, that the hero is now strengthened both materially and in spirit, having proven their capabilities.
