it's interesting to me that the gods and the magic are real, but the prophecy itself -- does not make you, the player character fated per se
i think this is a thing even my earlier adult thoughts on the storyline didn't grasp.
the events can, in theory, play out without the prophecy. the prophecy can, in theory, exist without the events, and merely be a story
the fact that you act out the prophecy not through divine obligation, but your own will, does not make the prophecy fake or meaningless, because without the prophecy you would just have a Hero Who Did Some Helpful But Unconnected Things
@galaxgal The players are assembled and awaiting the last member to assume their role. Without the hero, there is no event.
