Fate

The Queue: Does Free Will exist?

Y’all talked a lot about free will and predestination and forced corruption in the Warcraft cosmology yesterday. I ended up exercising my free will and am not talking about it at all in this Tuesday’s Queue.

I will say that one of the things I liked about Warcraft III is that Arthas damns himself. Every step of the way, he makes choices, and they lead him step by step to his ultimate fate. Even taking up Frostmourne is a choice he made after being repeatedly warned not to do it. To my mind that’s a lot more interesting than getting shot with a magic red dart that might be a Tear of Elune and turning bad just because.
