Term: Wyrd

DEFINITION:
The word "Wyrd" is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and roughly corresponds to the concept of "karma" in Hinduism. Although wyrd can be personal it is often linked to whole families, tribes, and even races.

The less conscious one is, the more one is subject to the seemingly random workings of Wyrd, in contrast to "orlog," which is impersonal and cannot be manipulated.
