The official GemStone IV encyclopedia.

I guess I am missing the point of this category, but since this can't be in any way comprehensive, I don't understand the logic in having a listing of adventurers with most of the pages not containing much info. Is this something that really belongs on Krakiipedia, i.e., the best use for the wiki? Just an honest question here, and no offense meant to anyone. carabele 21:37, 14 January 2007 (EST)

I actually have covered this topic with Oliver, who, if I get this wrong, can gladly step in and correct me. He told me he'd like for Krakiipedia to become an archive and source of information for all things Gemstone, including player characters. (Its the same reason why Gemstone related writing, such as poetry and short stories are on KP) In one way, having the PCs here will allow people to at least walk down memory lane and at most, learn more about some of the individuals who played a role in historic events. As with any article, more content is desired, and hopefully those who have little said about them will one day have a lot more. I suppose more importantly, there really isn't a "notability" requirement for articles on Krakiipedia. They just need to be related to Gemstone. Regardless, I believe its a good idea if only to do that memory lane thing. :) Rail 21:52, 14 January 2007 (EST)
Rail summed it up fairly well. In general, I don't believe there is a 'good' or 'bad' use of the wiki. If it has to do with GemStone IV, then it has a place here. For myself, personally, the interest is more in the world and the history than the mechanics of the game. However, I recognize that a central location for all things related to mechanics is not only useful in general to the GemStome community, but also some people's cup of tea when it comes to these sorts of projects. In any case, I firmly believe that the adventurers of GemStone belong with the history of the game and Elanthia. Some have left their mark, and significant ones at that. It should be noted somewhere.  :) Oliver Talk 03:50, 15 January 2007 (EST)
