Create a New Wiki Page

  • Search for Name
  • Page Not Found
  • Edit the Character Page
  1. To begin creating the character page, search for your character name.
  2. When the page is not found, click on the red link to create it.
  3. The simplest start is to simply link your PDF character sheet.
  4. (Optionally) You could expand the page with more information. It could be your back story. It could be a listing of this character's achievements.
  5. Finally, at the end of the page code, add the category code: [[Category:Player Characters]]. This will make it shows up in The Party page.

Update Your Existing Character Page

Update the page text and format

To update your existing page, click on the Edit tab at the very top of the page.

Update an uploaded file

  1. Go to the List of Uploaded Files
  2. Search for your uploaded character sheet (This is where naming it CharacterName-Character-Sheet.pdf makes it easier to find.)
  3. Click on the filename.
  4. Select "Upload New Version of this File" to update it on the Wiki

Example: Simple Character Page

The simplest and easiest way to add your character is just to upload the character sheet PDF and display it. Here's an example of what that page could look like:

== Character Sheet ==
[[File:HeivalurVaydark.pdf]]

<pdf>File:HeivalurVaydark.pdf</pdf>

[[Category:Player Characters]]
