  • The fashion section of the community project First Age of Flight still needs to be done and veryone is free to edit it
  • Questions discussed:
    • Is there any reason why the descenders traveled to the tip of the Edge to go on their expeditions? Couldn't they just descend at any point along the cliff?
    • What happens to the Edgewater River once it falls down into the Scree Fields?
    • Why are there no real mountains on the Edge?
    • IIn our world, it gets colder as you go higher. If that was true in the Edgeworld, then how did the Sanctaphrax rock ever sink back down to the level of the Edge?
    • Who are your favourite villains?
    • Who so you think is the most physically adept/ best fighter in the series?
    • Was there any sand in the Edge? How did they make glass?
    • What are your favourite settlements?

    • Is Quove Lentis in charge of Great Glade?

Issues discussed:

  • Are slaughterers goblins?
    • OogBoog had mentioned in the comments of Goblins that this is what the official edge chronicles website says here: A chiefly nocturnal type of goblin, slaughterers have spiky hair and blood-red skin, the colour coming from the smoke of redoak chippings used in the leather tanning process they use.
    • We can't find this anywhere in the books and the official website is not run by the authors. This information will thus not be accepted as canon until it is found in the books.
  • There was the idea of creating a discord server for the chats, mostly because you don't need an account and also because the discussions are preserved. Here's an invitation that will not expire: https://discord.gg/6kTh3PG. You can also just click the 'connect' button on the Discord

Issues discussed:

  • The "the" at the start of a page should be bold, along with the page name. (E.g. "The Boom Docks...")
    • However, in the case of sky-ship or book names, only the exact title should be italicised. (E.g. "The Bringer of Doom...")
  • In image captions, full stops/periods should not be used. (E.g. "A dead skullpelt")
    • Other punctuation, such as commas, exclamation marks or speech marks may be used where necessary.
  • Capital letters should only be used at the beginnings of sentences or proper nouns. (E.g. "Togtuft Hegg was a long-haired goblin.")
    • This mainly applies to links which are currently unnecessarily capitalised (E.g. "Togtuft Hegg was a Long-Haired Goblin.")
  • Should the Sanctaphrax category only contain places, should it be a subcategory, and should it contain anything from New Sanctaphrax?
  • When something is mentioned in The Lost Barkscrolls, should the specific story be used?
  • When mentioning the Free Glades, what should they be called?
    • "Freeglades" is an adjective, used when referring to Freegladers, the Freeglades Council, the Freeglade Lancers, etc.
    • "Free Glades" is the noun, referring to the actual place.
    • "Free Glades" should be used.
  • The First Age of Flight only officially ended when Tweezel invented varnish, starting the Second Age of Flight.
    • Anyone who was mentioned before 60 ᴇ.ʏ. should be put in the First Age of Flight category.
  • The use of Behind the Scenes will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis, depending on how interesting/important the information is.
  • Can descriptions of characters be made from images?
    • Qoutes from the text must be used, if available.
    • If no quotes are available, images may be used.

Issues discussed:

  • Gloamglozer will add christmas-themed images to the Main Page
  • How to deal with different categories for species
    • Categories for species 'families' will be kept
      • Goblins
      • Symbite Goblins

    • Sub-species will be removed, and a list of all named members will be added to their page
      • Oakelves
      • Woodtrolls
      • Possible others
    • Fourthlings will be kept as a category, because there are so many of them
  • A page will be made for Quint's sword miniature
  • Which E.Y. should be used?
    • The smaller (ᴇ.ʏ.) looks nice, but has to be copied and pasted every time (Or just use the template by typing {{E.Y.}} )
    • The larger (E.Y.) doesn't look so nice, but is much easier to write
    • The smaller (ᴇ.ʏ.) was chosen, so every larger (E.Y.) will be replaced over time
  • If anything has a real-world counterpart, it should be in the Behind the Scenes category and have a heading "Behind the Scenes", explaining its relation to the real world
  • From April to July, there will be a reread of the entire Edge Chronicles series
    • A blog post will be made about it in March/April
    • During this, each week we'll focus on one book, and try to make as many edits as possible about it
    • Until then, we will try to expand the Cade Saga, because it lacks detail
  • There are certain editions of the books which have 1-page short stories in the front, each about a minor character
    • We are trying to find out which editions had these, and how to find them

Issues discussed:

  • The Strange Traveler will maybe edit the Farrow Ridges after Undertown and the Deepwoods
  • What classifies an article stub?
    • Categorizing an article as a stub signals other people that the article needs work. It is also helpful to remember later that you wanted to look something up/edit something later/let others check for grammar. If you have nothing to do, you can also just look up the category and see what pages need work.
  • Who should be on the list of deaths?
    • This should be decided by answering the follwing questions:
      • 1) Was it one (possibly named) person?
      • 2) Did this character's death influence any other character's decisions?
      • So for example: Academy of Wind = Unnamed people, no impacts on character's decisions, shouldn't be included. Tug's mother = Named, Tug fled the Nightwoods, should be included
      • Pets/prowlgrins are to be included because they were named, and were often significant, but not other animals.
      • Named characters should generally be separated from groups
      • Exceptions may be made in certain cases
  • How do we deal with last words that we don't know?
    • "N/A" (not applicable) if someone is not capable of speech (E.g. The Great Blueshell Clam)
    • "Varies" if members of a group said different things, but they should generally be seperated.
    • Words over sounds: If someone uttered last words, then screamed and then died, we keep the last words, instead of the scream.
    • Speech marks seperate words from sounds. "Aiiii" is a word, but "he screamed" is a description of a sound.
    • "Unknown" everywhere we don't know if someone said something/too much happened between what he said and when he died. Blanks should be filled as fast as possible.
    • All these should be added as a key to the Deaths in the Edge Chronicles page.
  • Graphics of the list of deaths could be added.
