The Fate of the Task Master
Threads of Fate
The Threads of Fate
The Threads of Fate are a rare Divine item paradoxically common on DroutLand. They appear to be a golden spool of wire, though when played out the wire itself disappears into thin air as though it were unspooling into nothingness. If the holder of the Threads begins to re-spool the wire, they find themselves pulled backwards in time. All of their actions and consequences are rewound to the point where the threads were originally played out. The holder (or party holding) the threads are aware of the events which had happened, but the rest of the world is reset and ignorant of those events, as though they never existed. Once respooled, the threads themselves disappear.
The Threads themselves are dangerous though. It is thought that using them too often brings madness. As a result of their most destructive nature, they were banished, destroyed by the Gods, and can be found no where else but on DroutLand. Here their power is managed by the Task Master, who is in complete control of their use and distribution. A spool of these threads are give to each party whom agrees to undertake the challenges of the Task Master.
