As far as I'm aware, no one has tried to being this to anyone's attention, so therefore I shall try it myself! :roamin:

Today, out of curiosity, a random spur of interest, and being somewhat interested in Wikis recently, I went to see if there was a Wiki for Unforgotten Realms (http://urealms.wikia.com/wiki/Unforgotten_Realms_Wiki). I found that there was... However, it appeared to be more or less abandoned, forgotten, or something! In any case, it really isn't up to the standards of most of the Wikis I've seen. (There only being twelve pages and the home page having several errors are particularly irking to me.)

So, I was just wondering how many of you out there knew about this, and how many of you people actually care? I for one would love to see this Wiki actually up and running, but obviously a lot of people would have to contribute to it. If we could get it to work, it could be a useful resource for all kinds of fans, new and old (particularly new) to get more familiar with the series and get involved with the community, and possibly provide a source of publicity for the series (highly improbable, but still possible).

Then again I could be completely wrong, and perhaps this Wiki is just young and is being edited, but I just can't tell. In any case, it would be nice to see you all try to work on this, I'll be personally trying to edit it on occasion if I can. Anyone can work on the Wiki so it would be great to see the community contribute. (I think I'm going in circles by now.)

For those who are interested the Wiki can be found here (http://urealms.wikia.com/wiki/Unforgotten_Realms_Wiki)

And for those who are artistically or have writing talent there's a fanon Wiki here (http://urealms-fanon.wikia.com/wiki/Unforgotten_Realms_Fanon_Wiki) as well... Though it looks highly trolly and dead...

At some point we had a wiki being worked on in the community, but it never really took off. The Wikia one caused me A LOT of drama in the past as instead of focusing on the show, it focused on silly little pieces of drama within the community it's self and worse had so many errors and I kept having users correct me for mistakes I would fix. That wikia man refused to spell Eluamous right for so long.

With everything community related, I have zero problems with it until it causes me grief. I have in the past put up a wiki for our users to work on and if there is interest i'll put up a new one again, because ads suck on wikia sometimes.

In fact I sent my arch wizard Tom to whip one up once again.

There you go. Anyone who is interested in admining it that has worked with wikis before can shoot me a pm.

Also. If you guys make the wiki, I will most likely have no choice to constantly correct things which cause me to leak more and more stuff I'm working on. Man you guys totally shouldn't do this now that I think about it.

You know. I been meaning to test this out on you guys for awhile now anyway since I had Sugar make it for me for this project. Anyway go nuts. This is from one of the dozens of lore books I had to write up.

Oh those silly elves and there silly coded fonts. Why couldn't they just use comic sans.

Thor humps a Turtle
Most of the time when you pick up a piece of lore you look at the title
and go "Oh okay Neat" but I bet when you picked this one up you just
sat there and went "Wait ... what?" you see when Thor was still young
before the times of war for Dwarves against Trolls and Kobolds.
he once found himself at the beach starring at a beautiful green
whistleback Turtle. Now maybe it was a sly look or the fact the turtle
had a really sweat looking tail, but somehow that very night Thor humped
said Turtle. The next day Thor left to go around causing more havoc
around the world, but little did he know that the turtle he humped would
become pregnant. And so if anyone ever asks you if it's possible for a god
and a turtle to mate, you just point them to this little lore slip and say
"Damn right Steve. Damn right it is." Nine months later, a little
egg was hatched that would give birth to the demi god Magni, the queen
of shells


God damn it Rob this is either the dumbest or the most awesome story I've ever read. I was compelled to translate it. And when I got to the part where the turtle gets pregnant, I almost died of laughter.

She assumed it was a 26 letter alphabet code, which is was because I said it was a font. Using that you can look at the popular letters like vowels and then look for small words like A, I, To, Go, You etc etc and once you have a couple letters you fully know it gets easier and easier as you are able to guess words.

Oh cool, yea I've done Jumbles but nothing like this, I'm glad some people on this site aren't as much of an airhead as me. lol

Ravenhall
04-07-2012, 02:05 PM
I started by looking for the letters a and i as they are the only one letter words I know. Then I looked at all the two letter word and figured the all the vowels form there. And the rest was mostly trial and error as I looked for the consonants.

EDIT: Wait she? I'm a man.

Idk about that, every time any guy I've known RPed as a female it was always the sl*tiest nastiest character you could imagine. Girls from my experience are a little more respectable like whatever character Ravenhall is trying to convince us isn't female.

It probably doesn't help that you keep posting adorable rabbit pictures.

Don't worry Ravenhall we're just teasing you, honestly I thought you were male all along... Mostly because I have a hard time believing anyone is a girl on this site, so until I'm proven otherwise people are just male or gender neutral.

You set me to work on one, or atleast, sorting out the backend of it a while back... infact, it was June last year, at what time, but then I had some computer problems, and you decided to pull the plug on it, since I lost my FTP details...

Anyway, I shot you a PM as well...

I've been thinking about the turtle thing and bet Rob wants to introduce the turtle race to the story. I recall he did give the race a name. However, I can't remember what it was. And if this Magni Queen of shells person is added too I'm betting she won't be happy Maulstrom absorbed part of her father.

On pixiv, if you scroll to the bottom there's a button for English. That makes things a lot easier... Also, there's a Firefox plugin to translate tags so you can search.

As for Thor humping a turtle, when Rob rolled a bulbasaur Magni must have turned them into ninja turtles!
edit: Actually it reminds me of Leda and the Swan. Really, Rob's little story isn't so different from Greek mythology!

Are they supposed to be the closest things to humans like "the mundanes" from the Xanth books?

Heres what I have written about Keens.

Keen
Keens are a small, blind race who are known for their skill with magic. They rely on their other senses, magic, and unreliable guessing to help them get by in the world.
Lore
Because they are blind, Keens are usually found living in established towns and cities. It is not unknown for their kind to use abandoned houses or ancient ruins as shelter. However; there are few tribal Keens that travel blindly though the world and try to eke by with their magic and a pinch of good luck. Keens are not defined by any one culture.
