How come Isslyra & Marquet are so empty looking? I'm assuming that's just because Matt hasn't got to describe them yet. Or are they just that empty?
What's on your mind?
I wanted to float a couple of ideas, especially since Wizards of the Coast has been taking steps to be more culturally sensitive recently.
I saw that we have the Ashari symbol listed as under fair use. Would it also be fair use for me to edit the image of the symbol to give it a transparent background, and then upload that?
I believe that all art and maps within the Explorer's Guide to Wildemount can be featured on this wiki under the grounds of fair use. This wiki already features a number of artworks published by Wizards of the Coast that is considered fair use. The Forgotten Realms wiki prominently features official artwork by WotC that is fair use. Furthermore, art from the Tal'Dorei Campaign setting is also featured here under fair use.
My question from here is how to credit the artists where it is known, as unless I'm wrong, permission is not needed under the grounds of fair use.
Since the writers of the Explorer's Guide to Wildemount have officially listed The Everlight's name in Exandria as Raei, we should probably update the wiki to reflect that, right? Regardless of what was said on stream in the last campaign, if the canon has changed, (whether for copyright reasons or not) we should reflect the latest canon and redirect from Sarenrae, shouldn't we?
I've noticed that on the pages for the individual gods, 'Deity' is sometimes put under Class and other times under Creature Type.
I feel Class should only be used when describing creatures with actual class levels, such as with Vecna, who has wizard levels.
I wouldn't put 'Deity' under Creature Type either, as there is nothing in Fifth Edition that suggests 'Deity' is a creature type. The only example of a statted deity in 5e is Tiamat and her creature type is listed as Fiend. [The Rise of Tiamat; Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus]
Where should we put 'Deity'? Do we create a new section called 'Rank' or 'Power Level' and put 'Deity' there, also adding 'Archfey', 'Archdemon', and 'Archdevil' when appropriate? Does anyone have any suggestions?
I had a thought about the navigation boxes. What if we were to have "tiers" of specificity of navboxes, some collapsed and others not?
The idea would be that if the location in question is not the most specific it can get (e.g. an article on the Dwendalian Empire is not the most specific, as there are cities and regions within the Empire), the only uncollapsed navbox would be the one that includes more specific information within the location in question. Meanwhile, it would also include one collapsed navbox with information that is less specific to the location in question. Running with the example above of the Dwendalian Empire, I would have it include two tiered navboxes:
However, if the location in question is the most specific it can get (e.g. Zadash), the only uncollapsed navbox would be the one that includes the most specific information 'above' the location in question. Additionally, the article may or may not include a collapsed navbox of the tier 'above' that, depending on the article. Running with the example above of Zadash, I would have it include two tiered navboxes:
Of course, not all these cases are going to be clear cut. For example, Rexxentrum is the literal capital of the Dwendalian Empire, so would we include Nav-ZemniFields, Nav-DwendalianEmpire, or both uncollapsed? Ultimately, however, I think that tiered organization of navboxes by specificity would be beneficial. Nav-Places is very good when we're dealing with the volume of information pre-EGtW, but now that we have so much detail on Wildemount it seems to include references to cities all throughout Exandria in an article about Zadash.
I know this would take some reorganization, but the good thing is that incorporating this kind of tiered specificity of navboxes is backwards compatible, so we wouldn't need to replace all of the Nav-Places navboxes all at once. We can take our time and slowly add in new navboxes.
Hey all, I'm working on a team of critters that is currently making a list of all the in-universe books. Should I add this to the wiki? We're combing through the transcriptions atm. Let me know!
Recently there's been a lot of redlinks created for the traditional fantasy races. If someone wants to create pages for those races and how they differ in CR from the standard D&D races, great! But unless those pages are created in the next week to ten days, I'm going to start deleting those links.
Opash goal is to basically make the luxon beacon and most of his work came from thordak. Ep 89 Cr1. I got this from early 3hour of the stream when they read Opash's tome.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tU-mBn4qsk&t=10442s
IF one of the beacon is in Opash/raishan lair. raishan and opash soul might be inside the beacon and the way raishan was going to revive her self is when the egg hatch her soul will be tranfer to the hatchling. but the egg was detroyed
Does Podcasts of Wildemount warrant a wiki page? Not really sure if it's canon, nor whether that has any bearing on qualifying for the wiki, but I figured it's notable since it's an official tie-in to the new sourcebook.
Especially now that Explorer's Guide to Wildemount is out, I feel it might be a good idea to have an infobox template like the one used for character pages specifically for creatures, in similar fashion to the one used on the Forgotten Realms wiki. In order to not infringe on copyright, fields could be based off of what's visible in unexpanded tabs in the D&D Beyond monster list (Name, CR, Type, Size, Alignment; Tags and Environment are applied inconsistently and probably aren't necessary), plus a field for where in the setting they can be found.
Should a page be made for the various homebrew spells that appear in the show, like Wristpocket or Widogast's Web of Fire?
If we do, I don't think Dunamancy spells should be included, since they'll be in Explorer's Guide to Wildemount, and thus not homebrew.
Hey everyone, checking in to see how things are going, and bringing some more general updates.
You might have noticed that some wikis are showing new video content, which will be replacing the old featured videos that were placed at the top of some wiki pages. The new video series, called The Loop, will have new videos weekly so it stays up-to-date, it'll be specific to vertical (in this case movies/TV) so it'll be scalable, and it will have production value so it'll be good quality. The one I've seen around the movies/TV wikis is about The Mandalorian, and I actually like it, it's the kind of thing I'd check out while browsing on YouTube.
So if you see new videos on the wiki, that's what's going on. You can read more about it in the Community Central staff blog post An Update on the Future of Featured Video.
How can we ref to the Winter's Crest Festival/Vox Machina Origins comics, the animated series in the future, and maybe the The Chronicles of Exandria artbook?
Is there a way to accomplice it in the form of a template?
Hey everyone! I'm going around to let communities know about a couple things. The first is a new feature called Global Taxonomy, which will better personalize wiki recommendations for you and visitors. People who would be interested in your wiki content will be better able to find it, and it will help you discover content that’s interesting and relevant to you. You can read more about in the Community Central staff blog post Introducing Global Taxonomy.
Hope you find these useful as well!
The new chapters seem to be showing up correctly everywhere I've seen except in the Character Infoboxes, where Chapters 14 and 15 aren't options. Anyone know how to make that happen?
Hi there I am super new to this community (in a way) and the front page is plain for a fan wiki, I would suggest a scroll stable pattern like the wood pattern on the The UnExpectables wiki but more themed for something like Critical Roll. I don't know a lot about coding so I wouldn't know the technical side, but I know more the art side.
