With our totally AWESOME Iwaku Zodiac now online, I find myself inspired to occasionally incorporate the Zodiac as a cool little way to add flavor to roleplays or help give me inspiration for character personalities. That got me thinking about DESTINY and how we use it in our roleplay plots! You'll often find roleplays that include some twist of FATE. A prophecy, someone with a destiny. Sometimes the prophecies and destiny are true! No matter what the characters do, they are following the past that was predetermined for them by the gods, by a prophecy, etc, etc. Sometimes in other stories, they discover that there's no fate for them and that they themselves are choosing their future. That their choices could have ANY out come, what happens is simply cause/effect, coincidence or situational. Let's all just -ignore- the fact that we as story tellers are controlling their fate. XD What element do YOU prefer using in your roleplays? A FATED DESTINY or NO SUCH THING AS FATE. And tell us some of your favorite examples of destiny vs no destiny!
