390. The desert philosopher

onepng

The Redguards believe that you meet your fate on the roads you take to avoid your destiny.  On the desert road in the Tigonus region of the Alik’r, just south of the town of Kozanset, I meet Hadoon, yet another desert philosopher who wishes to debate the nature of fate, only this sun-baked sage argues against it.

Despite what the old man in the harbourage would have me believe, I find it difficult to accept that some god long ago drew a circle in the sand exactly at the spot I now stand.  Fate is but a perception of circumstance, and it is our choice how we choose to perceive that circumstance, whether as a trial or a challenge.  To the question why me? The only reasonable answer is… why not.
