Portal of the Ryzom Lore
There are currently 34 pages related to the portal and 163 elements in the category Lore. There are currently in the English speaking Encyclopatys more than 2,262elements.
Once Upon a time Atys...
In the year 2525, Atys looks like an amnesiac planet.
The homins know almost nothing about their past and know even less about the history of their planet. This section is a reflection of their knowledge. It brings together the knowledge already accumulated and will expand as they move towards the truth.
Come into this section and enter in the universe of Ryzom.
The elements of the official Lore are not independent of the game itself. They are often mixed with official events and "leaks", for example, in the form of "chronicles".
So there is no "plan" strictly speaking (but nothing says that there is not one in the mind of the Lorists).
On the other hand, this portal categorizes all official pages to the source and formalized, that is, invented by the players and recognized by the lorists as belonging now to the Lore.
In fact, the spirit of Ryzom allows everyone's creativity, but nevertheless it is necessary to have a framework of "consistency" for everyone's comfort and pleasure.
We have imported all the pages on the old official Lore Wiki into this Wiki. Now there are several things to consider and you can help!
Since we want to really merge both wikis to become one, just importing is not enough. There is much duplicated information present since some of the official lore was already copied here years ago. Other things are missing completely or should be part of already existing articles.
Information about imported wiki pages
Many page names are prefixed which detemines their origin on the old official Lore Wiki.
On the old official Lore Wiki, there were quite some pages that had no content at all, except for a "coming soon" placeholder. You can ignore these pages, since we will remove them. We already have removed these pages. The idea is to leave missing pages as red-links (page not existing) instead of luring people in just to find out that there is nothing there. You can identify these pages easily since they will most of the time just contain:
Long story short, keep linking to those missing pages but don't create "empty" pages!
Using imported content
Generally, Lore pages should be merged with already existing wiki pages.
Chronicles pages will find a new home in our Lore section.
You may edit the imported pages right where they are in order to "bugfix" them since we could not import the formatting flawlessly.
Please do not move the pages directly. The imported pages names with the prefixes are not what we'd like to have. Some page names are also shortened. We won't do that either. You can create a new page on the desired destination and copy the content there. Once the merge is done, we will delete all the temporary imported pages!
There are also many pages that are split into parts. We'd like to have those pages as one page! You can use headlines to section the article into parts instead of creating a new page for each.
Since we are providing the wiki in different languages, all images have been moved to a seperate wiki that is our media repository. You can use images uploaded there normally using the [[File:]] markup. We did not import any images that were used on the old official Lore Wiki. The reason for this are mainly naming conflicts with already existing files. If you want to use the missing images, you'll have to upload them to the media repository wiki.
Of course all pages in the chronicles section will have to be categorized.
We use this basic system to do it:
