Well, in my realm, Phineus lives in the North, and skeletons are white people, so I suppose stubby's theory stands.

I'm all for having a Rainboweros continent, btw.

Awesome.

Also, this is gorgeous. I went ahead and linked it in Zahru's profile since it wasn't linked in from anywhere. Also, I went through and fixed the redlinks. The new Bestiary section I put up accounts for a lot of ideas we previously had floating about on various pages. I've consolidated key concepts into grouped pages. Creature Components gives us a place for mind, structure, weapons, and propulsion. Creature Evolutions gives us a place for all the enhanced minifigs like Heroe, Mediks, and the like. Creature Specialties gives us a place for all the CP cost powers they have. I also put abilities you gave to monsters, like Spidering, in there. And Creature Themes give us a place for stereotypes like ninja, spaceman, townsfolk, castle, etc. Also, the Human section gathers floating words like girl, mom, nerd, boss, roller derby, school, etc.

Thinking on the word "stereotypikal," I had realized we had a lot of floating redlinks to words that "mean something" in BrikWars. Like logik, hatred, megalomania, rationality, trolling, and the like. So I created a Basic Understanding section under Philosophy to serve as a glossary of simple BrikWars ideas.

Thinking on the word "trolling," I realized with your Zahru article, Stubby, that it has two meanings for us. One as a race of creatures, which I put in Minifig Genus, and one as an act. So I linked one to the other.

Similar to the grouping mentioned above, I simplified the format found under tactics (now a subcategory of Gaming in BrikWars). They're all on one page since they're basic (no one ever wrote more than a few sentences). I figure if a particular tactics section expands, we can link it out to its own page with its own categories. Until then, really no need for separate pages. About them, though: I retitled some of the headings to reflect actual BrikWars units. Tactical info on how to handle a Hero is more useful, if you're even into that sort of thing, than random made up bullshit. That said, I kept some of that random made up bullshit because the concept is neat and helps to expand the sense of what is possible when creating units in more complicated games. I haven't been linking to strategies when referring to specific types of characters, like heroes and scouts, though. I've been instead linking to Creature Evolution for that sort of thing as thats where they are going to be defined. But I was thinking of linking to the associated strategy from the description entry.


As a final thought, I love the idea of SigFigs having their own page and I don't know why I didn't think of it before. I'll add that to Inhabitants of the Universe presently.

For my organization skills and my talent for verbosity? Because Stubby totally wrote that Trollarm article.

Three, actually, but I think it's funniest to just conflate them rather than treat them as separate concepts.

    Troll, n.
    6. A noxious species that regenerates no matter how many times you think you've killed them, trolls are a standard monster of fantasy fiction and Norse and Japanese mythology. They have no redeeming qualities.
    7. A noxious species that regenerates no matter how many times you think you've killed them, trolls are a standard class of internet forum posters. They have no redeeming qualities.
    8. A noxious species that regenerates no matter how many times you think you've killed them, trolls are the lowest form of standard pranks and practical japery. They have no redeeming qualities.

I wasn't sure whether to combine sigfig entries with their players (like on the page for Natalya) or to separate them out like Zahru. In the long run I think it'll probably be better to have separate pages that link back to each other.

I mostly just copied it from the Medivo article. But I will take credit for the funny painting.

Thy will be done.


Regarding the Zahru Article:
The Notable Appearances section refers to the appearances of the character, but for the Piltogg and Natalya pages it refers to battles which we (the humans) played in, but our articles are combined descriptions of Natalya and Piltogg the humans and our sig-figs at the same time. Maybe we should like have two kinds of Appearances sections, one that describes appearances of the sig-fig or whatever character it is, and one that describes battles which a human BrikWarrior either hosted or participated in?

Yes. This will probably work best if the human page and the sigfig page have separate tables. Maybe I'll cook up some templates later.

Works for me.

I'll use the Far-Ums article to help tie them together. I linked out Major Natalya under SigFigs but I didn't move anything over. I figured since you took the time to write the background, you'd want to be the one to separate things out, Natalya. Should be super easy, though. I see you had the foresight to separate the Major into her own section.

I think the best way to differentiate between sigfig and humanimal is to do the section about the forum battle participation under the user:Natalya page, and have the Natalya page be her sigfig's actual includement.

Good idea, I hadn't thought of using the User: pages to differentiate them.

I've added Template:player and Template:categories and made a few examples: Natalya, Piltogg, Stubby, Quantumsurfer

This is so much less awesome than actual Natalya, this sounds like something a 14 year old would write on a social networking page.

The nav templates are nice, they make the wiki look more professional. I assume we'll link those in once all the templates have been embedded into the individual pages. I also really like the profile templates. They look really good and provide an excellent snapshot of the member both for reminders and for those who tl;dr.

Haha, are you for real? You notice the intense My Little penis obsession on these here forums? That's fully 33% of stickers and penises and myspace. :)
