I recently read a poem by Argentinian author Jorge Luis Borges and it really reminded me of KH3’s focus on the chessboard. The game of chess is intertwined with the theme of fate. I am really excited to see how fate and the book of prophecies impact the end of Sora’s adventure, and how the chess game between young Xehanort and Eraqus comes into play in the overarching narrative.

Chess by Jorge Luis Borges

Weakling king, slanting bishop, relentless
Queen, direct rook and cunning pawn
Seek and wage their armed battle
Across the black and white of the field.

They know not that the player’s notorious
Hand governs their destiny,
They know not that a rigor adamantine
Subjects their will and rules their day.

The player also is a prisoner
(The saying is Omar’s) of another board
Of black nights and of white days.

God moves the player, and he, the piece.
Which god behind God begets the plot
Of dust and time and dream and agonies



I’m especially excited to see if there’s a “God behind God” in KH3

First I want to say that I am so glad there is another Jorge Luis Borges fan on this forum. His writing is so transformative and beautiful.

This is such a fitting piece for Xehanort and Eraqus’ game.
