Getting Started

For assistance in wiki coding, questions about how to create a certain look or all things related to the WanWic wiki, please visit the General Wiki and Forums forum.

Character Wikis

Character wikis must follow the template provided. Each venue has a customized template to the characters who will be playing.

It is alright to spruce up the template slightly with additional images, for example, as long as it doesn’t interfere with the overall template. Character pages can be creative however they’re primarily a reference for STs and other players.
Tips and Tricks
AnneB has come up with a wiki page that has information on doing different coding and tricks to add more to your wiki. It can be found here
Items that cannot be changed
  • Venue Navigation Bar - This is a tool that identifies your character’s venue and helps others navigate away from your wiki more easily. It’s listed at the bottom of the templates if you lose yours.
  • Venue Banner - Top of the page, if you lose it, there is one on each of the venue templates. Just copy the link and put it at the very top of the page(Do not alter, size or recolor them). This allows people to know right away what venue you’re in.
  • Template categories - Although you may choose what you fill out or leave a mystery, all categories must be present on your sheet. (Stats, Description, Role Play Hooks, Contacts, Quotes). You can give them catchier titles.
  • The Layout - This is what allows people to quickly go to your wiki and know immediately where to check for information they’re after.
  • The Player Name - This must be visible, per COI rules, to avoid confusion or unintentional COI. The field for it is located in the Stats section.
  • The Story Hooks - All PC’s must have three story hooks on their wiki you may add these as you get to know your PC
Please Note
Wikis which are repeatedly found to be breaking the guidelines above are considered wiki vandalism. Players who continually break the guidelines listed above may be banned for up to 3 days.

Character Wiki Templates

Create your Character Wiki

  • Locate the appropriate Template, then open your own blank template by with your Character’s name for the title(You can do this easily by logging into the chat, right clicking your Character’s name and going to your profile). **Open your correct venue template, click edit and copy the code then paste it onto your pc’s profile.
    • Fill out the information and save!
For Werewolves with Deed Names and characters with nicknames, the format on your character sheet is Name -DeedName- LastName, but for the wiki, in order to properly link from the chat, do not use hyphens. Instead of -Deedname- enter Deedname into the template to create a wiki, or instead of Name -Deedname/nickname- Lastname enter Name Deedname/nickname Lastname.

Add Character Wiki to Cast List

This happens automatically when your character is sanctioned.

Wiki Quotes

Failure to comply with any of the following RULES will be considered Wiki Vandalism and could result in a temporary ban from game for up to 3 days. The purpose of this rule is to identify that quotes do not happen in a bubble because it’s not posted in chat.

Talking the Talk
If you place a quote on another character’s page, it instantly becomes In Character knowledge. That character, or anyone else who is familiar with your character, has heard your character say it, or has heard about your character saying it. They can respond to it In Character.

The responsible exception to this is any quote that contains venue specific information would not have been heard by any character outside of that venue.

  • Anyone choosing to use wiki quotes to find out information about a character that they have never met is meta-gaming. Complaints can and will likely be filed against you.
  • What’s Said is Said: If another character leaves a quote on your wiki you CANNOT edit the content of the quote or the name of the character.
  • Exception 1: Spelling or Grammar errors
  • Exception 2: Design/Format corrections (i.e., changing a link’s color, adding a bullet point)
  • Veto Power: If another character leaves a quote on your wiki, and you do not want to have it there, you may remove it.
  • Once a quote is removed, it is no longer able to be responded to In Character. It never happened.
You cannot respond In Character and THEN remove the offending quote.
  • If a player has removed a quote you have left on their character wiki, YOU MAY NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES re-add the same or similar quote.

Locations - How to claim territory

Alright, as we have had some confusion on this. These are the four steps on how to properly claim a neighborhood.

  • First, go to the districts page, and find which district and neighborhood you want to claim. We only do claiming by the neighborhoods listed on here. (We understand that there are many more, however there wasn’t enough information on the web to fully flesh them out, so some got merged.)
  • Second, make sure that no one else has claimed it. Some areas have two staff run things like a changeling court and a founding family who both claim an area. This is due to some ic agreement between the NPCs
  • Third, make sure you have the right merits and all that stuff you need to claim the area. Once you do, you’re ready to make the request.
  • Four, using the request system. The group is Admin, the Request Type is Map Update. Put in the link to the pc’s wiki, or location, or PC group. List what district and neighborhood you’re claiming and then submit!

Location Wikis - PC Owned Locations

STOP Before you begin working on a Location Wiki, ensure that you are sanctioned to do so. Many locations may require the purchase of a particular merit (i.e., Hollow, Sanctum, etc.), or may need to be part of your character’s background (i.e., a character owned business). If its on your sheet, or you have the OK of your venue storytellers, then proceed.

Creating a Location Wiki

  • Identify in which district the location is. There are 12 districts. These can be identified on The City page at the bottom, and there is a map to help you decide where exactly you want your location to be.
  • Once decided, use the Wiki Template maker located beside the banner of the District’s page.
  • It is not required that your location page use the wiki template, but it’s a good start and helps people quickly identify aspects of the location.
  • Your location wiki should, at the very least, identify what district it is in, who owns it (if this is IC knowledge), and any venue-related restrictions that may be in place.
  • Go to Districts Wiki and find your District, from there click on the link for that page, edit and add it under one of the Location * in the proper neighborhood that your location is at.
  • Go to Neighborhoods and same as above find your neighborhood, edit and add it under one of the Notable Places: * for that neighborhood.
    • You may also ask AnneB to do this.
  • If you’d like then use Location Wiki Template

Player Wiki Templates

Attention Players. These templates below are for you to copy the code and then paste it onto your own char’s wiki. DO NOT FILL OUT THESE BELOW TEMPLATES AS YOUR OWN. People have been, we can see who and what via history. Now i’ve had to go through all the current built wikis and retweak the code so that fonts can be read. Please do not mess with any of the codings on the templates. Just copy the template and paste it into your own wiki

Here are some simple templates for players to work off of:

Mortal+ Template
Geist Template?
Absent Template?
Werewolf Template
Wolfblood Template
Vampire Template
Dhampir Template
Ghoul Template

For those who are more advanced at coding or would like something different. These are templates made by TrishD

Mortal+ Template
Geist Template
Absent Template
Werewolf Template
Wolfblood Template
Vampire Template
Dhampir Template
Ghoul Template
