Lightbulb Cantinaverse Wiki

Everyone know what Wikipedia is?

Well, there's an easy-to-use create-your-own wiki site that Penny Arcade used to create the parody The Elmenstor Saga (a wiki referencing an imaginary fantasy franchise).

I figured we could use something like that to catalogue some of the complex nonsense we've built up over the years, as well as play around with our worldbuilding and suchlike, for easy reference. Imagine: Don't know what an Aesir is, or just who is Halren Flax? Or have you been here a while but don't remember some detail on what a Vanguard can do? Click here! Etc.

Behold: the Cantinaverse wiki.

The password is "cantinascenario".

Discuss.

(Oh, and I've done no editing so far because it's 4:30 AM, so it's in totally raw format.)

Update: Tried to make the main page look passable: http://cantinaverse.pbwiki.com/FrontPage

None of those linked pages go anywhere so far, but clicking on them will lead you to a page that lets you edit that page.

(How-to pages: http://pbwiki.com/faq.php and http://yummy.pbwiki.com/WikiStyle)

that's pretty cool.


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

Okay, there's some stuff in the Agamari section now. Not all the links go somewhere but you might want to look at "Tribes" and "Clans" as well as "Ealdorman" for a description of what Taklin Flax actually is.

Links that don't go anywhere are red, links that do are blue. Feel free to make as many "broken" pages as you want, btw. They can be filled in later.

btw, in case someone gets confused later on, I might make some cosmetic changes in arrangements of pages, and everyone else is free to do likewise. The last 50 changes to pages are always listed here: http://cantinaverse.pbwiki.com/changes.php Backups can be made on the admin page for those paranoid: http://cantinaverse.pbwiki.com/admin.php - though I doubt that's necessary.

Update: Done a summary of The Cantina Scenario (Cantina 1).

I'll do the rest of the summaries (not Cantina 14, until it's done) if no one has any objections. You're all free to edit what I write, of course.

Edit: Okay, Scar, stop creating blank pages and other randomness like that, k?

Also, may i do the history of the Crimson Star War?

And Redwing, can you get me the names of the original 4 Super Stardestroyers that were present in the original blitz across the galaxy in C i think it was 13 or 12? It was the start of the Crimson Star War.

Cracken: All you need to do to create a page is type the name of the page [in brackets] on another page while editing, and a dead link appears when you update the page. Clicking on the dead link will let you create the new page. Magic.

It's actually extremely easy. Look at the two how-to pages.

Feel free to do the Crimson Star War, but I still am going to do a summary for the Cantina threads in which it took place. Yours can be the more in-depth summary, since my thread summaries will cover the main plot events, hopefully in a completely neutral fashion.

The 4 Super Star Destroyers? Not sure. See, that's why I'm doing the thread summaries thread by thread; it's a more efficient way to pick up on missing random information, as you can see by the Characters, Locations, Terminology and Msc Notes section of the Cantina 1 thread summary.

I'm going through adding some anything relating to anything I came up with. I can edit them later if something is inaccurate. Nice job on the Cantina 1 summary Red.

Red, how are you going to explain this in your summary?

http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=60800

(My first two posts)

Turns out Flax was refered to as "Dog" throughout much of Cantina 5.

Well BD, unless there's other info that turns up in the thread I'll simply report that as it happened. Flax appeared to die, but later mysteriously reappeared alive, without volunteering an explanation. (and describe the reappearance)

P.S. you all forget I've done something like this before (or at least with the equivalent amount of work), to make this. (Except then I skipped posts not involving Deac, Rwos or Corzip Dinn.)

Unofficial bio format:

Bio Page Name Format: (Last Name), (First Name).

(This is to maintain consistency. To link to the page while displaying something besides that format type, brackets and the "|" included: "[(First Name, Last Name)|(WhatYouWantThePageToSay)]". For example "[Starkiller, Deac|Deac]" would display "Deac" and link to "Deac Starkiller".)

!!!Name (first, last)

**Homeworld**:
**Species**:
**Gender**:
**Height**:
**Hair Color**:
**Eye Color**:
**Affiliation**:

(Make sure to preserve the spaces at the beginning of each line. They're what makes the little white box around this info.)

**Bio**:

**Other Info**:

**Appearances**: (Don't worry about this part. I can fill this in later.)

You can add more detailed descriptions of the characters, etc. etc. whatever you want, but the above is the basic format I'm using at the moment, stolen from Wookiepedia.

So for now:
Quote:
!!!FirstName LastName

**Homeworld**:
**Species**:
**Gender**:
**Height**:
**Hair Color**:
**Eye Color**:
**Affiliation**:

**Bio**:

**Other Info**:

btw, in case anyone's wondering why I'm currently just adding random stuff and not anything 'useful' i.e. on Rwos, the Aether, etc, it's because I want to go through Cantina and get all that done first. Am planning on giving every single character that ever starred in Cantina a page, and most Cantina anachronisms (the reason I even made a page for GalactéMon).

Editorializing will be inevitable in cases of random godmoding, FYI, demonstrated well, I think, here: Aceos Azzaviros bio page.
