The term Oracle has two distinct uses in HeroEngine:
- The Oracle database, which is used as the data store for both Hero's Journey and HeroEngine by default. The interface to the Oracle database is in a module which may be replaced by licensees, allowing them to use different databases
- The Spec Oracle System, which is an HSL concept, that HeroEngine calls an oracle, based on the Greek mythological concept of the Oracle at Delphi, a provider of knowledge. There are a variety of MMO Foundation Framework components, which are referred to as oracles, which utilize a common mechanic (the Spec System) to expose your game's data for use by HSL scripting. For example, in Hero's Journey, there are oracles for item specifications; ability specifications; Fx system specifications, and so forth.
