  • Hey I started a wikia for Numenera, the table-top rpg, since I think there is a lot to it that isn't in the video game. I'm a complete noob when it comes to wikis though, so if you want it you can have it.

  • You did some awesome work with the PlanescapeTorment-Maps. Do you plan to add the missing ones, e.g. Fortress of Regrets, soon?

    • Hi there.

      I was planning on adding the maps for all the areas, I have them all sitting on my hard drive. Problem is, that map feature is extremely buggy (often it doesn't let me upload a map at all) and isn't supported by Wikia anymore. See Help:Wikia_Maps and the support thread where that was discovered on the Community site.

      So yeah, I've been keeping an eye on that, to see if someone comes up with an alternative. It's a shame, that maps feature was pretty awesome. If all else fails I could annotate them and add them as images, but for that, I'd need more time than I have at the moment.

    • Hmm, how about uploading them somewhere so more folks can bring in their thoughts on it?

      Anyways, I´m interested in how you got them. Extracted them from one of the documents in the data-folder? Or did you use some special infinity engine tools?

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, I'll upload them as images in the near future.

      I use Infinity Explorer to extract the images (maps, icons etc) from PS:T. NearInfinity is another useful tool, it has a better search feature to actually find the files/info you want, but it's not great for extracting images.

  • It's been a while. I'm sorry for my sudden disappearance a month ago (if it was even noticed, heh). My computer died and I have (for the moment) lost my files.

    You know your To Do list? I just wanted to mention that Trias' page can probably be crossed off of it - I wrote a bunch for it a while back. It's possible I missed something, so please go ahead and check stuff if you want. I don't want to cross him off your list myself.

    Ravel's page is also listed on that To Do list. I have a bunch of stuff written for it and was in the middle of finishing it up when everything died. I had also been working on stuff for fleshing out PS:T location pages. I'm not sure if I'll get any of that stuff back or not, but I figure I'd mention in case you were currently working on anything for those so we can save ourselves some time by preventing us both from working on the same thing(s).

    I'd like to start helping out here again if I can. I just wanted to say hey since it's been a long time and mention the Trias thing.

    • Hey. On Strahan Runeshadow's page it mentions that Rodger Bumpass is credited as the voice of Strahan, but that he didn't actually do that. He's just been written in as the voice actor for both Strahan and Fhjull Forked-Tongue. I'm not sure what's right or not, but I don't remember Fhjull having a voice (can't remember). Regardless, either the note is wrong or the voice actor shouldn't be listed (right? I don't know). Sorry for the trouble.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, he is listed in the credits as the voice actor for Fhjull and Strahan. (That much is correct, see this video of the credits at 1:06 : https://youtu.be/qn0QnjdlEFk?t=1m6s)

      Fhjull does have a couple voiced lines, as you can see in this video playthrough at 4:28 : https://youtu.be/-h-3GpR4frw?t=4m28s

      For Strahan, I'm absolutely 100% sure he doesn't have any voiced lines in the Mausoleum, I just checked. So unless that character appears elsewhere in the game (I don't think so, but I'm not completely sure) then the note is correct. And yeah, in that case, you're right, Roger Bumpass shouldn't be listed in the infobox for Strahan.

  • Hey, some pages have recently been added for T:ToN. I was wondering if a consensus was ever reached about adding stuff on Numenera? I recall there being a forum post about it, but don't know if anything was established regarding where that info should be. If it shouldn't be added maybe the user adding new pages could be told about it so they can save their time (or help out where the information is better off)? I don't want to seem like a jerk about it and don't want to tell them to stop if it's fine here. Just figured I'd ask your opinion.

    As an aside (unrelated to T:ToN), every time I try to post a comment now wikia eats it. I click "post" and it just... vanishes. Gone. It's incredibly frustrating. Is it possibly some kind of anti-spam filter or something?

      Loading editor
    • Nevermind about the posting - seems to be an issue with Flash not cooperating with my browser.

        Loading editor
    • Hey there. Nope, no consensus for the TToN info, so it looks like we're covering both games. The other "official" TToN wiki looks like it's at a standstill anyway, with no one editing it. The more we add here, the more this wiki becomes an authority on the subject, so there's no downside, no good info will be deleted from here.

      Have you fixed the Flash problem? That seems annoying.

        Loading editor
    • Nah. I'll just use a different browser for comments. Since T:ToN info is okay here, I made a list of some categories that might eventually be needed (there are PS:T counterparts for all of these):

      • Accessories
      • Weapons
      • Shops (or equivalent - the shops category isn't listed as Shops (PS:T), so if a T:ToN category is ever created that will have to be changed)
      • Quest Items and Miscellaneous Items
      • Races and Creatures (there are separate categories for these for PS:T, though there is very minor overlap; I have no idea what kind of creatures exist in the Numenera world, so it's possible neither of these would be right)
      • Enemies
      • Quests (not entirely sure about this one - mostly it just lists characters that are involved in quests)

      At some point, something might be needed for bugs/secrets/exploits relevant to T:ToN. New pages, or perhaps the existing pages can be edited with deliberate formatting to distinguish between the games.

      None of this is really needed right now - most won't be needed until way down the line, and some might not be needed at all. It's nice to have some general outline for these things, though.

      One last thing - do you think an "appearances" row should be added to the item infobox template? It might not be needed, but I thought of it so I might as well ask.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, it's nice to have a list. :) I'll add it to the To Do page and we'll get to it when we get some pages going. T:ToN looks like it has actual quest titles, unlike PS:T, so the quest category will be even more relevant for that game.

      The items in T:ToN seem like they'll be quite differrnt, so a seperate item template for that game might be called for.

      I'll change the shop category, thanks for pointing that out.

  • Should I go ahead and let you know when a page is missing an image? There's no "image needed" link.

    Just in case the answer is yes, here are some pages that need images/icons:

    • Murk
    • The items page (no icon for murk)
    • Lim-Lim
    • Fiendish Eye of Kalem'Darr

    Should I bug you about this stuff?

      Loading editor
    • Hi there,

      Feel free to "bug" me for stuff like this, that's what I'm here for ;) I just made a category for this: Category:Articles without images. It'll probably be easier just to add a page to that category to flag it as missing an icon or image. I'll check it regularly and add the needed images.

  • Hey. I was wondering if you think it would be okay to set the bot to delete extra space at the tops of pages. It's not noticeable for most pages, but for pages with descriptions or quotes at the top it adds a blank area at the top. It doesn't hurt anything to remove it, and will make those pages look better. Is that something that could be done?

      Loading editor
    • Hey there. The bot is more of a search and replace thing, so I'm worried that if I tell it to do something like that it'll stupidly delete all the spacing on the page. But there are more advanced features that I haven't looked too deeply into yet. I'll try to see if I can figure out a way to do it.

        Loading editor
    • Actually it's pretty simple, just figured it out :) The spacing will be fixed in no time!

  • Hi. Torment Wiki looks good and I've added it to the approved spotlight list! Did you have an image/caption you would like us to use?

  • The fiendish eye of Kalem'Darr has two spellings in-game. On its description page, the title/header section spells it as "The Fiendish Eye of Kalem'Dar" - only one R. The description itself spells it "Kalem'Darr" multiple times - two Rs. I have written out everything to create the page and was going to create it as "Kalem'Darr," but I don't want to create the page only for you to have to fix it later. Do you have any opinion on this?

    Also concerning the eye - the description for it is incredibly long. Long enough that it's a little ridiculous-looking. Is that a problem, or no?

      Loading editor
    • I think your instinct is right, I'd go with the two R version (it seems like the one R version is a typo in the game).

      I've encountered some items like that that have ridiculous descriptions, and what I did in those cases is picked a paragraph that made sense on its own, and just put that. (I don't like copying too much verbatim from the game, even if it's a quote, because of copyright. Fair Use only applies if the quotes are small enough, and used to illustrate or explain something) If it's a story it might be a good idea to summarize and reword that in a separate section, but it might not be necessary.

      By the way, do you use NearInfinity to view the game files and descriptions? I'm not saying you need to or should, just curious if you're copying descriptions by hand. If you are, I don't mind if you want to lighten your load and leave the descriptions to me, since I can copy-paste them directly from the game, instead of typing them out...

        Loading editor
    • I've been copying things by hand, like a time-wasting moron. (Whoops!) Mostly I've only copied things that I already had in my inventory after loading up a save to check something in the game, but I will save my time if that's something you'd like to handle instead.

        Loading editor
    • No worries, I did that too before discovering the joys of diving into the game files. :) So you can leave the descriptions to me if you want, I'll add them when I review the changes on the wiki.

    • Wikia is being weird in not letting me post comments, so hopefully this one works. I wish I could edit my previous comment - I thought of something that might be relevant to the token use.

      The token's description says that "the more powerful the shadow, the less likely it will obey your command." Maybe the token counts as being "used" more than once when it's used on higher-level shadows, since they're more powerful and it takes more to hold them? I have no idea - just a thought. The 17 uses might me the most you can get if it's used on low-level shadows?

  • Deionarra's Wedding Ring and Deionarra's Wedding Ring (Upgraded) are almost the same exact page. If I go ahead and add the upgraded stats to the original page (as well as how to upgrade the ring) do you think the other page could be deleted? (Those are the only differences on the pages.)
