Word of the Day:

"Quiddity":

The real nature or essence of a thing; that which makes a thing what it is.
In essence, "Thing-ness".

Not only is it cool, but it starts with a Q and reminds me of Quidditch.

This is very nearly unrelated...but that word has been used in AC for years. 8-P (clicky)

I was going to post all the stories that mention it but the lore search site is down. :-(

The Quiddity was set up by the Virindi, a collective group of beings that live in portal-space, well really in The Singularity. They act in unison, or at least until they get tainted by living on Dereth for a long time and gain indepent thought. They Virindi believe in ultimate order. Chaos is what they fight against. Kind of like the borg.

Its all great lore. A rouge faction was formed by the independents and tried to set up their own Singularity away from the control of the current power. The power is called the Quiddity.

Now that I think about it, the power being called the Quiddity makes much sense.

All the "beings", virindi, blindly obey the Quiddity. Everything is governed by the will of the Quiddity. We don't know if it's a select few that command, or if it's formed in the same way that our own conciousness comes from a group of random brain cells clumped together.
