Intro to the Wiki System

For those of you who are new to OURPGsoc Society Games, this page is here to serve as a primer to the wikis and how we are using them for the Game.

As always, if you have any questions regarding any of this don't hesitate to email the GMs.

The Wiki

The wiki is used, primarily, to keep all the information you need to know about the game's setting in one place. (At game's start any way; as the game progresses the information may become out of date, and you will need to find in-game sources to keep up) Also, the wiki is used for players to submit their turnsheets: how we facilitate between session actions. (see the page on turnsheets)

You won't be able to edit most of the pages on the wiki, the GMs need to keep on top of it somehow, but you will be able to edit the turnsheets and other pages in your user space, as well as the playground, which is an OOC page for game related stuff. To get to your user page, you can use the buttons up the top right of any page (when logged in) to reach it.

Most details that you may want to put into a page can be accessed by the buttons at the top of the editor; but if you want to know more details of this wiki's syntax have a look at the syntax page.

User Accounts/Character Pages

Once you have come up with a character concept, and gone through the Character Creation process, you need to email the GM Team, who will run make sure that everything is alright with your character, and set up a wiki account for you. This will be under the name of your character, and provides you access to a user page with turnsheets and up to date information about all of the mechanical details of your character.

This page is private, so only you can see it, and you can not see the user pages of any other players. The only part you can see are the public bios in the Characters page.


On your user page should be a series of red links, named 'Turnsheet #'. These link to pages that don't exist yet, so when you are ready to begin writing up your actions, click on the link for that week and then click “Create this page” in the top right on the subsequent page.

The turnsheet will have a template prepared to show you the basic layout. You don't need to stick to this 100%, but it would be easier on all of the GMs if you kept a similar format, so we can easily see what you're trying to do in that turn. Once you have written everything up, click the save button to create the page so that you (and all the GMs) can see it. You may want to click preview first, to make sure everything reads like you hope it would; but editing the page should be entirely fine as long as it's before the deadline on the turnsheets page.


When a user account is created, you'll also receive an email address of the form yourcharactername@ragnarok.chaosdeathfish.com. This will actually just link emails sent to that account to the email account you provide when signing up, and any emails sent to a @ragnarok.chaosdeathfish.com email from that account will appear to come from you character email.

The long and short of this being that this system allows you to have IC conversations outside of session without anyone else necessarily seeing them. (Except the GMs, of course: A copy of every email is sent to the GMs to allow us to keep tabs on what everyone is planning to do, and prepare stuff to happen accordingly.)
