With choice, always a chance. But with chance, no choice.
I was amused by the Door of Honor and the Tunnel of Cowardly Certainty.

‘The Glorious Chaos,’ as they named that indeterminate state in which ships traveled or seemed to travel fester than light, had sufficient uncertainty to require no assistance. So they tossed loaded dice, as a token of respect, and to allow the gods of chance to interfere if they were determined.
