A Knot forms when a point in the time and destiny of someone in Eldorande becomes fixed. A Fated’s Knots are used to describe the unique ways in which Destiny interacts with your character, and vice-versa. Knots are intended to assist character interactions, and help to flesh out a character and be used as a plot device. They might describe personality traits, situations from her history that had an effect on her current personality or a character’s flaws.
In addition to creating plot devices and helping to flesh out a character, a Knot has effects on game mechanics as well.
