One True Way

In Slingham, everyone is under the belief that there are predestined events which will occur, no matter what happens. If someone starves to death, it was predestined; if someone was struck down by lightning, it was predestined; if someone murders another, it was predestined. The odd thing about this belief is that it is true to everyone in Slingham. “Fate is predetermined already and there is nothing you can do about it” is the mindset of everyone. To disbelieve this is considered awful and can be punishable by prison and being retrained in the “One True Way.” What makes this belief so popular is the King. The King has predetermined events that will occur in the future, which makes it hard to believe any other belief than fate is already determined. To reinforce others beliefs, the King makes speeches and talks directly to the city from the high tower about upcoming events and occurrences that WILL happen in the future to come (i.e. a bad ice storm will come and wipe out most of the crops, therefore give extra some of money now for taxes because of this event to come. And eventually, this event will occur). This strange phenomenon has been occurring for centuries, and it is just perceived as normal day of living. This principal also occurs with dragon riders and protectors. Before people are born, their job/life is predetermined.
