The Coincidence Guild is a group of entities advocating for the importance and existence of coincidence or happenstance.[1]

They are featured in the 36 Lessons of Vivec, Sermon 4, where a group of spirits known as the Lobbyists for the Coincidence Guild encounter Vivec during his search for the lands of the Indoril. The leader of the Lobbyists, whose name faded into obscurity, spearheads the debate. They engage in a dialogue with Vivec, who challenges their beliefs by arguing against the concept of luck. Vivec presents a philosophical argument against the notion of coincidence, suggesting that synchronicity arises from repeated coincidences that ultimately invalidate the idea of randomness. This dialogue leads to the destruction of the concept of coincidence in the land of the Velothi.[1]

According to the religious narrative presented in the Sermons, Vivec soon encounters the Old Bone of the earth, which folds unto itself twenty times until it takes on the appearance of milk. Vivec consumes it, thus ascending to become a ruling king of the world. Following this, he meets the Chancellor of Exactitude and comes to the ultimate realization that being a ruling king entails enduring trials beyond ordinary suffering and grappling with matters immeasurable by conventional means.[1]
