Story and characters?

Hey there, possible new contributor here if I decide to stick around. I have a question.

I've dug around a bit (and yes, I had to dig) and found pages devoted to the Hero characters. My question is why do these pages only detail the effects of the heroes in-game, and not about the characters themselves? I think it would be good to include information about, say, Listrata's past and personality, along with those of the other factions if details about them emerge.

I ask becasue I think profile pages would be a worthy addition to the wiki. It's all canon information after all, and I'm really growing to love Listrata's character and all the lore surrounding this world.

Small question: Should we only include the faction name on the end of Hero cards - Captain Listrata (Vespitole) - that are actually playable? Or should we include them on characters like Montferro Siani as well?

I ask because it simply doesn't feel right to me to add this label onto every character. If this game is going to grow further into (at least a very small) fanbase, then I think having the factions included in the names of the pages would look a bit clunky to people interested in the lore as well as just the game itself. We can always point that part out somewhere on the pages themselves anyway.

Personally, I think it's cumbersome to have the faction name even on the hero cards. So far, they aren't needed, as no character is in two different factions. So feel free to skip them on story characters.

I'm currently replaying the campaign and taking notes of the story, so will add that to the campaign pages as I go.

I keep seeing this "Things to remember" section on Hero card pages and wondering what it is. Can someone explain that to me? It doesn't seem to serve any purpose as far as I can tell. Plus, on a number of pages someone has added "==(page name)==" in the coding at the top of the page, which severs absolutely no purpose. I suppose not all of us are used to working on Wikias, not that I hold anything against those who aren't, of course.

Also, would somebody be so kind as to grab some pictures of Campaign-only characters like Regent Ashkar and Montferro Siani? It would be a nice help for their character pages and those of other characters.

I'll see if I can snap some decent pictures of them from in-game, as I don't think you can get them the other way.

Should we add the tag "Characters" to anyone who appears in the campaign?

I put up Castellan Verat with picture, categorized as Hero and Non-playable. Think that is the most descriptive way to do it.

If you guys want, we could rename all the hero pages so they don't have the faction name in it. I agree that it looks clunky and this wiki is still pretty small so it shouldn't be too hard.

Agreed. Let's do it.

Guys, I just figured out that Wikia has a chatroom function. It ought to make for easier communication between us. Get yourselves in there!
