Chapter Nineteen: A Powerful Plea

JTA19.jpg

Surprised by your sudden temptation to subvert the village’s profits into your own pockets, you begin to feel more disconcerted by the ever-increasing notions of chaos and destruction that are pervading your thoughts. Perhaps an appeal to the gods could clear your mind and your conscience.

Who do we pray to for divine intervention?
🙏 Shol, God of Truth
🤲 Norlan, Goddess of Fate

  • Stability comes from truth, but fate is constantly changing.

    Truth can only tell us about the now. Fate will guide us for what is to come.

  • The TRUTH is that we made the correct choice to keep the gold that was FATEd to be ours.

    Truth is power. Truth is not fair. Truth will set you free. Truth binds. Truth is the guiding principle of life. Truth unites. Truth divides. Truth takes no sides. Truth is on your side. Truth is before, now and tomorrow . Truth is timeless. Truth does not judge. Truth lets you judge. Truth is facts. Truth is not feelings. Truth is the only constant among Gods & Mortals. Pray to Truth. Seek Truth.

    I pray to “The others” ... why pray forgiveness when “the others” will bless you for keeping the money for yourself

    Y'all messed up last time. Hell we've been railroaded a few times now, we weren't even given the option to forge a full set of attire out of the giant critter parts, just went straight to gold bars. So.... now we're having to pray for therapy while the trade node is arming up with the spoils of our victory. I'm glaring at the GM right now.

    Hummm...I'm not affiliated with any single religion, nor do I normally pray to a god. However...Given the available choices I'm going to need to say, Norlan, Goddess of Fate. Fate will probably decide the path I take as I leave the village with gold in my pack and a new bow on my back... Time to go explore the Vera... ;)

    Most people never listen. They are just waiting on you to quit making noise so they can.

    Disconcerted by the ever increasing notions of chaos and destruction.
    Some GM's just know how to suck all the life out a party. Chaos , death and destruction is where all the fun is at.
    The carebears boned us again now we have to play"nice" with others.
    Truth.
    Without Chaos nothing evolves with out order nothing exists.
    Nagash and I will be the agents of chaos you need to spice up your life!

    No matter how much Truth one may know, it all leads to the same inevitable Fate that was destined for them.

    Though knowing the Truth about one's Fate, might make it less painful in the end...

    Truth is usually harsh and unforgiving - befitting the tradition of the elves that they've passed down through the generations. Fate tends to curse your existence, but at least gives you wiggle room to fight for your destiny. Eitherway, I feel Fate and Truth eventually cross paths.

    Normally I'd side with the elves, but in this case it seems like there's more adventure if we consult Norlan.
    I wish I were deep and tragic

    The question I have is why should we seek forgiveness when we did all the work

  • Know the truth and forge your own fate... in the blood of your enemies!

    Can we simply not pray to anything?

    The devs are railroading us

    I suspect the outcomes will be the same:

    God of Truth be like: "Greed & bloodthirst are your true desire, the core of your psyche. One, should always stay truthful to himself. Embrace your true self, go ahead & pocket the profits!"

    Goddess of Fate be like: "You're destined to richness. Greed & blood is the inevitable path you will take. Embrace your fate, and face it. Go ahead & pocket the profits!"

    Yes my lords. I'd pocket the loots. It's us who killed the mob anyway.

    What does truth matter when we are all slaves to fate?

    Great work guys.
  • McMackMuckMcMackMuck Member
    I earned a little coin by fair and honest graft,
    Giving it to villagers really seemed quite daft!
    I prayed to the God of Truth about this blind insanity
    to clear away the madness that led to mindless charity.
    Alas he wasn't listening, or at least had nothing to say
    about the outburst of benevolence that ruined my profitable day.
    I prayed to the God of Fate to regain my disposed wealth,
    She answered quite bluntly, "at least you have your health"
    I tired of all that praying; it played havoc with my knees.
    Next I'll try to find a bar and drown my miseries.

    well being an atheist in a world with living breathing gods is kind of hard

    You could:

    - go into denial
    - create a world of no gods, by removing the living breathing gods

    Or is that what the Ancients tried to do?
