Please enlighten me - what purpose do the region pages serve? There's nothing on them that can't be seen in-game. On the contrary, much less.
The wiki isn't meant to duplicate all info in the damn! I hate it when game info is duplicated on the Wiki, because sure as there's Amen in church, it'll become outdated because people stop bothering to update it!

- I think that this is an excellent example of what I think a region page should look like. Ultimately, I think most people just use it as a place-holder so that their realm pages don't have any broken links in their list of regions, such as the Perdan page. I think lords and knights of that region just aren't motivated or don't have the creativity to add a bit of roleplay flavor to their region page.
Maybe if lords were encouraged to split their regions into small villages and towns and then grant each one to a knight (a fief, for reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fief) in a big roleplayed ceremony. The fact that the person has the feeling of truely owning that piece of land, they might fell encouraged to roleplay about it more, and subsequently, fill up the region pages. Daily happenings, monster attacks, businesses that generate taxes, the physical makeup, you name it.
I actually considered making this a feature request back in October-ish, but coding this would be like asking Bush to pull out of Iraq: Yes, it would be awsome, but no one knows an easy way to do it so that it is done in the foreseeable future. Anyway, there's my two cents on the matter. Fredrich 01:36, 23 January 2007 (CET)
- Like Fredrich said, they're here to offer more information on the region. His Far East example is good and there are many region pages that offer information the game doesn't. Siver or Saler offer some small bits of history the game and many of the present players would not know of without it. The only problem is people don't seem too keen on making their regions have some history or uniqueness so we end up with some pages that don't have any new information. - LilWolf 11:50, 23 January 2007 (CET)
Is there anywhere I can find a history/timeline of the Atamaran continent? AlexN 00:03, 27 May 2007 (CEST)
- Unfortunately, no. Look at the Hasland page. It's interesting. And insightful. George the Hippy 01:01, 27 May 2007 (CEST)
- Interesting and insightful it is, but I was looking for something broader in scale, covering the early days of the entire continent. If a page like that doesn't exist, perhaps I should start one. On a slightly unrelated note, does anybody have an early map of Atamara? --AlexN 23:52, 27 May 2007 (CEST)
- Yeah, something like the Timeline of East Continent. Who wants to give it a shot? I did it for the Far East so I'm all pooped out here. :P House Olik 19:39, 16 June 2007 (CEST)
I put this on here to try to clean up the section a little bit. I know it's very hard to do, since it's almost impossible to confirm the "non-existence" of a Guild, but there are some cases we probably can. Perhaps we can start using the (last updated) next to Guild names like some newspapers do to show people the guild is still alive and kicking? --Jmadsen 07:11, 29 August 2008 (CEST)
