Are the Void and the Darkness same ting?[edit]

Reading together the third edition pocket guide, The Monomyth, The Book of Daedra, and Spirit of the Daedra, I think "the Void" is also called "the Darkness", the space left in between the realms of substance, where no interplay between the cosmic forces of creation or other stimulae exists, and it is where immortal spirits are thought to be banished when defeated.

Does that sound about right? I could be dead wrong, mostly because I'm not sure various sources are talking about the same place or concept when they mention "the void". If it's correct, I'm just suggesting the page say the Void's also called "the Darkness". Minor Edits 02:24, 27 May 2011 (UTC)

Well, when I first read about the Void extensively for a week back in 2008 (I had one of my brief Absolute Nerd weeks) I drew a final conclusion that I've kept ever since: the Void is not a single place, but many. That it is a name applied to that outside of the known realms. That's just my opinion and conclusion, however. But, as for "the Darkness" I ran across that in my readings a few times, just as you did. I'll go ahead and add that to the page. There, I added it. I figured I'd let someone else add the reference, as I have to clean up the Nirn page.--Kalis AgeaYes? Contrib E-mail 02:35, 27 May 2011 (UTC)

I may be wrong but...[edit]

The page refers to Sithis and Padomay as separate beings. My understanding is that Sithis and Padomay are just different names for the same being. Am I wrong or should the article be edited? --71.17.19.249 01:07, 4 September 2012 (EDT)

The subject you're referring to has been discussed here. You're free to expand on your opinion, of course. -- Kertaw48 (talk) 09:52, 6 September 2012 (EDT)

Nineteen Voids[edit]

Not sure why the inclusion of this is being disputed, even if it is an out-of-game source. "Or with Mehrunes Dagon. Do not speak his name to me again. The Master of Scum. The pawn of every Prince of true power, the dupe of every schemer in the Nineteen Voids." "I find it amusing that you believe him gone forever. He may never return to this realm, but he still walks the voids of Oblivion. " The Void is mentioned in a plural form in this text, and there's no way the 'nineteen' voids could be anything separate. —Legoless (talk) 16:15, 13 April 2014 (GMT)

The Void[edit]

Is the Void a space of nothingness? Where there is no light, objects, worlds etc? Also, is it true that if someone got into the Void they would perish? DG#:) 22:31, 21 November 2014 (GMT)
