Following Description:

(Written in 1999, taken from the Chosen of Fate website):
The Chosen of Fate is a Neutral Order on the Final Challenge Mud. Its roots are heavily based in Celtic and Greek mythology, as well as the TFC mythology of The Triat, created by Paul Lowe-Hlavacek (Thaygar, once Master of the Ebon Hand, now leader of the Servants of Death). Grateful thanks go to Paul for allowing derivational use of his lore.

The mythos behind the Order of Fate is relatively basic: There are three Aspects to existence: birth, life, and death. These correspond to the Triat Incarna of the Wyrm, the Weaver, and the Wyld. Someday, there will be an Order of Fate for each of the three Aspects... but for now, there is simply the Chosen of Fate, led by Cordir, the Weaver of the Tapestry.

The Chosen's purpose within TFC is simple: As servants of the Weaver, they believe it is their task to prepare the young of the Realm for the rigors of life. Both by actual assistance and through example, they hope to aid as many as possible through the trials of The Final Challenge.

The Chosen of Fate is a non-aggressive Neutral following, dedicated to the teaching of the young, personal growth, and devoted service to the Realm as a whole. Its rules and requirements for entry are challenging, but the personal growth and camaraderie found there more than repay the price of duty.

Changing PK Model:

The Chosen of Fate were initially of the 'Hearth' PK Model. This was the most restrictive of all of the models. Members were unable to initiate combat of any kind, unless individually justified to do so. At that time, Cordir required her followers to flee if attacked, without exception.

Later, when Tynian wished the removal of the 'Hearth' PK model, the Chosen of Fate changed to the 'Sentry' model. This allowed use of FJUST, a 'following justification' that allowed the entire following to avenge attacks or deaths of their brothers and sisters. Because the Chosen of Fate remained true to the original goals of the PK model, they were allowed to retain it long after other new followings were not allowed to select it.

To followers of: Cordir

Our PK model has been changed. Every Chosen has a 30 day window in which to decide if they will stay or they will go. WHY?

1) Tynian has expressed in the past his wish that Sentry - and PK Model as a whole - go away. He has checked with me now and then to ask if I'd changed my mind. While I DO NOT know this to be true ... it has occurred to me that perhaps there are many things that he wishes to do with TFC that he cannot, with PK model in his way, coding wise.

2) It would happen eventually. I wanted it to happen on my own terms. Bluntly, I don't know if I am long for this realm, and I want to shake it to its foundations while I can. If you ask why I would think that, I have but one word for you. Majere.

What does this mean for you?

  • MY RULES GOVERNING PK AND YOUR INVOLVEMENT IN PK HAVE NOT CHANGED. Hands / Blades / Mystics are the only ones who should be getting in conflict. Same rules apply - only help those who are hunting Anathema or Wyld Hunt.
  • It means we need to watch out for one another more. Watch over our little ones. Keep them safe. They no longer have Fjust -- But they do have the focused attention and protection of our entire following.
  • Treat Ally Anathema as you have: No harm, but no aid. Offer to help them with removal from the Anathema list.

If you have questions: ASK BEFORE YOU ACT.

Entry Requirements:

1. Change your title to: 'walks the path of the Wyrm.'
2. Reach level 10, minimum.
3. Gain the sponsorship of a current member of the Chosen.
4. Write a character history. Your sponsor will tell you where to send it.
5. Present yourself for a one on one interview with Cordir. (Here's one example of The Fifth Requirement)
6. Spend a `year and a day' of TFC time (two hours RL) assisting the young and new to the Realm with spells, eq, advice, and guidance.
7. Learn eight of the racial cities of your home continent. Be able to prove this knowledge by obtaining a unique item from each city.
8. Select three Geasa and discuss their suitability with your sponsor.
9. Find the Sigil Draktha in the Ruins of the Citadel in the North. Be able to reach it from your home city.

Why Those Tasks? (From the Chosen of Fate website)

The point of this quest is to show me that you're capable of fulfilling the primary mission of the Chosen of Fate - helping the mud to grow by assisting new players. I fully acknowledge that some of the tasks are challenging for level 10 characters. If you have questions about what assistance you can have, ask your sponsor. For other details, read on...

  • "Spend a `year and a day' of TFC time (two hours RL) assisting the young and new to the Realm with spells, eq, advice, and guidance." Get used to it - you'll be doing it a lot. That means being in the guild and actively checking the who 1 10 list. Corpse rescues, obtaining newbie gear, giving directions, advice, spelling them up, etc, is all appropriate assistance. I recommend you take note of whom you help and how. There may be a quiz later. :)
  • "Learn eight of the racial cities of your home continent. Be able to prove this knowledge by obtaining a unique item from each city." Does this mean I want you to take a 10th level character to each of these cities? No. I wish the player to be educated, not simply the character. You are encouraged to start a newbie of each race, in order to learn the home town and the surrounding area. Take a look at the TFC World Map on the TFC Web Page to see how areas and home cities inter-connect. I want you to be knowlegeable of the Realm you adventure in. The tokens may be obtained either by your Questing character in person, or through honorable trade or purchase, or asking help from a Chosen.
  • "Select three Geasa and discuss their suitability with your sponsor. " You may be asking yourself, 'What ARE Geasa?' In answer, Geasa are an ancient tradition by which voluntary bonds are placed upon the individual. They are best chosen by you, for you; they act as tests of your strength of will and self control. A Geas is an action that's prohibited or required. An example of a Geas of Prohibition would be: I swear NEVER to eat food from a shopkeeper, never to enter the vortex, never to slay an Ogre, etc. An example of a Geas of Requirement would be: I swear to ALWAYS give aid to anyone who asks it of me, no matter the task or the petitioner, or Always visit Cillidellia each log in and pay respects to Queen Mariel or Always speak the truth. Inappropriate geasa would include things that are already required of Chosen, bound by mud rules, or simiilar sorts of things. The more specific the geasa, the better.

Special Circumstances

Cordir set forth 'special circumstances' rules, that would allow a potential follower the ability to bypass some elements of the Entry Quest. These were:

  • The individual helped or befriended Cordir when she was a mortal.
  • The individual had an alt that was already in the Chosen of Fate.
  • The individual had an alt that was an Immortal (past or present).
  • The individual was a playtester for a new class.

On one occasion, Cordir had a follower (Bastian) leave the following, because they were so outraged that someone else received 'special circumstances' and didn't have to complete the entire quest, feeling that it 'cheapened' the following to give such 'preferential' treatment. (In a bit of irony, Bastian later immorted as another character, and gave much the same preferential treatment to others.)

Additional Notes/Trivia:

  • The Chosen of Fate were the longest running Neutral following on The Final Challenge, spanning 9 years.
  • Most of the Ordained titles and special phrases were in Gaelic.
  • Regular meetings known as the "Fateful Hour" and Bardic Circles were held, sometimes with guests, for specific role-play or storytelling events. (See logs below!)
  • The mortal leaders of the following were known as Taoiseach (Councilors).
  • Those who attacked following members once or twice, were known as Rabhadh. Enemies of the following who had attacked or stolen from a Chosen 3 times, or slain a Chosen, were known as Anathema.
  • Individuals who were recognized as friends of great standing to the following were known as Destined. These included (at various times) Abender Stormreaver, Vecna, Jahiliya of Veladorn, Clumsyfool of Mirth, Trap Sturdivant T'Sarran, Typhon, Ivarr, Mael and Gaul Stone
  • All members were required to take on Geasa, a roleplayed prohibition or required action, which were witnessed by Cordir's "pet", the Guardian Spider . Saran Cerementi, Nyx and Tirayel took on the most, with nine each. These vows could range from never eating meat to never using the gossip channel, to being required to perform IDs upon request or visiting a specific zone each log in.
  • The Chosen of Fate's Avatar (for Avatar Wars in 2004 & 2006) was Lanae, based on Lanfear. Their Snowman, for Snowman Wars, was Phraustea. Kethran was particularly instrumental in building both Avatars and Snowmen.
  • Sub-groups within the Chosen that dealt with attacks on the following included the Blades of Fate and the Hands of Fate. (Not to be confused with the Selected of Fate)
  • Those who joined in 1999 - 2000 received a Chosen Welcome email.
  • More individuals from the Chosen of Fate have gone one to become FLIs in their own right, than any other following in TFC's history.

[ 16] Cordir: Life, the Universe, and Everything
Sun Jun 22 21:34:40 2008
To followers of: Cordir
So. Um. Yeah.I've written this a couple of times in the past, but this time it's actually sticking. :)

I will not be returning to TFC as an active FLI. Life, the universe, and everything (translation: a new house 3x the size to keep clean/unpack/make into a home, a 10 year old girl in my life, and a husband who deserves more time than I've given him in the past) have all come together to convince me that now is the time to retire.

I had some thoughts of going god+, and had even gotten the green light for that. That was an awesome gesture on Tynian's part, and I appreciate it.

June 20 was the 9 year anniversary of my becoming an FLI for the first time. I think that's a rather nice, Triaty sort of number.

Next Sunday (June 29th), probably mid day, I will be logging in and requesting Retirement. I would love to have as many folks from Fate (members now, and members from the past) there to say good bye. I'll bring a box of Kleenex, if you will. :)

Fate has changed TFC. We've been a force to be reckoned with, we've been a group doing things that no one else could do, or had ever dreamed of. I have had the pleasure and honor of serving you as your immortal, and it has enriched and changed my life. Thank you. Each of you. Many, I've had the pleasure of calling friends. In some cases, close friends. In one case, beloved. My life literally would not be the same without this game. It's been a long, fun ride.

So. Enough with that, I'm starting to get boo-hoo'ey. Hope to see ya on every now and then - I do plan on visiting, and will log in a few times between now and then hoping to catch folks in person. I'll happily log in on specific requests, via messenger or email if I get it in a timely fashion. I'm also planning on working up a Triat Mastery quest for Corri, since she made it to 50 before my deadline.

Take care, and know that I adore ya all.

Best wishes,
