Quote from: MathiasJackFatal Invocations are interesting. They aren't so much about changing Fate, as being able to read Fate. So Divinations are about reading the different Fates of people and things around you. The GM uses riddles and visual clues as to what Fate has in store. I'm developing a whole system for that. Designs are using that knowledge to your advantage; ie, knowing about someone's death and using that to reap Fate; being at the right time and place to use a Fate to one's advantage; knowing that something it supposed to happen and help make that happening come to place.
QuoteI think the theory I am going with at the moment is that the more Fate points you have, the more you have your own Destiny on your side, you have the favor of Fate. The lower it goes, the closer you are to bringing your Death, your Fate, how ever that End is supposed to happen, to reality.
QuoteAlmost as if Fatalist are the teacher's pet of the Cosmos, the teacher Fate: the teacher's pet figures the more the teacher likes them, the better grade they'll get and less trouble. The Fatalist figures the more they help Fate, the more they will be able to avoid their own and less chance of dieing. Like their putting their big moment of death on lay away by doing favors.
QuoteThe Fatalist can Invoke Fate then, as long as the Invocation is not counter to the desires of Fate, to deter death and other obstacles, saying "this is not in the stars, not written in the book of Fate, for me." But if it is a Divination a Weaver makes on a Fatalist, they might find out something that /is/ written for the Fatalist, and then the Fatalist is helpless to fight that except with Luck or Will.
QuoteSo Fate is definitely NOT a masquerading Will. It is about finding out what the cosmos has in store for you, others, and the world, and using that to your advantage in different ways. You have to use Will and Luck to /avoid/ what is Fate. Fatalists and other Weavers actually gain more Fate when they help Fate's plan stay on schedule.
