It’s tricky to depend upon Ascetic and her dices. When she makes her throw everything is uncertain, you might win or you might lose, she doesn’t control the outcome. Her powerlessness comes from her own gambit, her game of chance in which she lost severely. But in her defeat she turned against the wise man she followed her whole life and made another path, the one in which you don’t have to serve expectations of others.
If you follow her path you’ll never get all that you desire, but you might get something in between, something unexpected, unplanned, something that wasn’t in your cards when you began your journey. You’ll laugh, you’ll surely cry, you’ll even yell some, but when it all subsides you’ll find yourself content that you stepped on her path, because we all sometimes need surprises in our life times.
This is a primary world in which we begin. It’s a mainstream world of chance. There is no higher guidance, or higher power, our characters are left to their own devices to advance themselves in the world and they are at mercy of chance which sometimes grants them sort of a happy ending but with allot of sacrifices entwined. Only help they can hope for is for Ascetic to throw her dice and grant them an inner advice on where to step next in pivotal points of their lives.
