The Wandering Star Wiki

This wiki serves as compendium for all things Wandering Star. A universe made for roleplayers by roleplayers - extending beyond character sheets to include places, tools, nations and history which are then submitted for community approval and is vetted through a quality control system to ensure balance and consistency. This wiki serves as a guide-book and repository, detailing all of these things.

About our little community

Wandering Star is an explorer's roleplaying community. Self-aware, smart and occasionally breaking the fourth wall. Our universe extends beyond character sheets to include pretty much everything imaginable. This all goes through a system of community approval for fairness to ensure balance and consistency. If you want something and it doesn't exist, you know what to do; and we'll do it with you.

Creating and adding elements to the Setting

When you create something, it's not just a toy for you to play with. It's a set piece, something to be seen and used and enjoyed by others. Keep that in mind when you are designing something. It's highly recommended that you create a sandbox page for yourself under “user/NAME/SANDBOXNAME” for a personal directory for your in-progress works.

Wandering Star Canon Directory

Everything which has ever been approved for use and many things which are still under progress (flagged !WIP!), the canon directory is the sort of wikipedia of ingame world where everything from places, events, people, factions and objects can be researched and investigated to better understand the ingame world. If something is mentioned ingame and you don't know what it means, if in doubt search here to find it!
