@Tarot_Redhand (Thanks for pointing out the typo!)
Thanks for taking an interest in the title I have used. I gave it a lot of thought and it took me ten years to reach this title for module 2. The First Day and The Last Day were always going to be the case for modules 1and 3. For the second module, I needed a word that was to sum up the whole point behind the campaign, which complemented the titles (and equal points being made) of modules 1 and 3.
If you ever play the campaign, even from module one, there is a start of the significance behind this word in more depth. However, this will not be obvious to the casual player. So, for confirmation, it is being used in this meaning …
To foreordain to an earthly or eternal lot or destiny by divine decree.
SPOILER ALERT (Kind of)
And, most builders will (or should) recognise that their module actually dictates the outcomes to every players action within their game, no matter how much “freedom” the player believes they have. The Scroll Campaign is just designed to emphasise this, and (by the end) hopefully drop that enlightenment on the player, which I also hope will help them to recognise the significance of our own historical application of the word within our own world. i.e. It is an extremely significant word, with an absolute poignant expression for everyone. The clearest usage of this word and where it is most significantly used is within the Bible, and is a word that sends immense joy to some, but strikes terror to others. BUT, there is more to it than this, but without quoting scripture, I cannot easily explain more … except maybe by the time I finish module 2 (or maybe 3), and people play them, I hope to also express it there.
Module 1: Hints at the word.
Module 2: Explains the word.
Module 3: Confirms the word.
The word is used very much alongside “predestination”, but “predestination” should always be seen in light of being “predestinated” and not in any modernised pagan usage of it.
Predestination Interesting Reading.
Particularly this part … The Reformed Position:
John Calvin rejected the idea that God permits rather than actively decrees the damnation of sinners, as well as other evil. Calvin did not believe God to be guilty of sin, but rather he considered God inflicting sin upon his creations to be an unfathomable mystery. Though he maintained God’s predestination applies to damnation as well as salvation, he taught that the damnation of the damned is caused by their sin, but that the salvation of the saved is solely caused by God. Other Protestant Reformers, including Huldrych Zwingli, also held double predestinarian views."
Thanks again, Lance.
