About Wheel of Fate
Some people call it luck; others call it destiny. But on the world of Providence, Fate’s presence was felt everywhere. Fate is the central force that combines Creation, Destruction and Change; which brought the universe into existence.
That is until the Affliction appeared. Born out of people’s disbelief, the Affliction cut off living beings from Fate’s influence, turning them Fateless. The Fateless were defeated in the Zodiac War, but the world was cut off from Fate’s influence as the Temple, the Wheel and the Avatar of Fate vanished into thin air.
One thousand years later, Fate, the Zodiac War and the Fateless are nothing but legends, mostly forgotten. But when a lone adventurer reawakens the Wheel of Fate, the legends of old become true.
The nearby village of Kismet’s Fall becomes the center of the world as all the races of Providence converge on the sleepy backwater. The Fateless are poised to reclaim the world that had evaded their grasp. All the stands between them and victory is the adventurer, also the protector of Kismet’s Fall as well as the Avatar of Fate.
