The motto of the AIW is conservata veritate, which translates to "with the preserved truth".
(From the Germanic name Theodoric meaning "Great Leader", from which the name Derek — my name — is derived).
Originally a name from a (now lost) short story I wrote in high school, I used the name as a handle to play MUDs in college, and kept it when I started my own MUD -- Realms of Despair (a SMAUG MUD). Hence Thoric is the god that created the game.
