The New Terra Wiki
Welcome to the Wiki of New Terra, where a wealth of information can be found within. Whether you wish to contribute and add data about alien citadels and cultures, or if you simply want to read about magic, this is the place for you! If you've stumbled across this page at random, then we suggest you first check out our about page. It will give you a rundown of the roleplay and the setting.
Currently, this wiki is highly work in progress, and you should note that the most important information about the lore is either stickied in the appropriate forums of the roleplaying board or included within the rules pages. If you'd like to contribute, just ask an admin or a mod and we'll give you the ability to create and edit pages if we haven't already (we need to manually do it for each member once they're approved, so sometimes we forget).
While most of the Wiki Rules are common sense, or otherwise included in the Rules of Conduct page, I'd like to note a few guidelines that you should follow:
- Don't knowingly contradict anything. Think of this like one big improv. And what's the first rule of improv? Go along with it. This is an alien planet. Almost anything goes. If you don't like something and think it doesn't really fit, tell a mod and we'll review it.
- Don't make anything worldbreaking, or otherwise create a page that will largely restrict what other writers are able to contribute.
- Do not delete anything without moderator approval, unless it's your own work. Here, we aim to continually add to and revise content. We want to grow, not shrink, so the times where a deletion will be necessary is incredibly slim.
- Avoid making pages relating to inside jokes or memes. As amusing as it might be, keep that kinda stuff limited to the Social Cafe or the discord channels.
- Additionally, as tempting as it might be, avoid directly ripping off lore from other franchises. You can have a similar species from your favourite sci-fi, and even give it the same name, but please integrate it into this world with your own lore and explanations.
Now that that's over with, have fun writing! I can't wait to see what you all come up with!
You can create a new page with the input box above, but make sure to backlink to the appropriate category. This can be done by writing [[Category:Category Name]] at the bottom of the page. For example, if you want to make a new species, write [[Category:Races]] at the bottom of the page. All available categories are listed below. If you want to make an 'unofficial' article, you can always instead tag your page with [[Category:Ideas]]. Ideas can later be moved into proper categories.
