History of the Fateful Coin

Unknown[Baldur's Gate]

Baldur's Gate



Old tales tell that luck plays a crucial role in each person's life. When each new-born enters into the realm, Tymora flips a coin formed from the remnants of the old goddess of luck, Tyche. Bashaba calls it in the air- the moon (heads) or the cloak (tails). If Bashaba is right, that person is cursed with misfortune for the rest of his or her days. If she is wrong, Lady Luck smiles on that child for the rest of his or her life. For some rare beings, the coin lands edge on - and these luckless few can forge their own fates, for they have more freedom over their destinies than the powers themselves.
