When I die... I want to be laid upon A pyre and pushed on to a lake a lake, where on the shore stands multiple people all with bows and arrows.

At a sound, all the arrows will be lit and everybody will be able to shoot their arrows at my pyre.

To the person or peoples who hit their mark and set me a fire will be given a treasure hunt.

I want people to have fun at my funeral.
