Welcome to the Silver Age Beyond wiki!

SABeyondIcon.jpgThis is our wiki. It serves as a starting point for our shared galaxy. From here you can add and edit info about our campaign, characters, worlds, items and races. With such a vast galaxy out there, this game depends on the players adding to the Wiki, so please don’t be shy! Details about getting started using wiki language are below in the Page Editing Details below. But now, on to the good stuff!

Proto-stars: How to begin.

Below this is just info on how to use this wiki.


Page editing details

To get you started, here are some examples of what you can do with the wiki. To see how these work, edit this page and take a look.

Creating a new page

To create a new page, just make a name and surround it with double square brackets like so: A New Page. When you save the page, the link will show up and you can click on it to create the new page.

Linking to existing pages

To link to existing pages, use the same double square brackets. For example, here’s a link to the this page: Main Page

Linking to a page with different text

If you don’t want to use the page’s name as the link text, you can specify your own text by placing a vertical bar | and the link text in the link like so: The Text To Display

Linking to characters and items

To link to a character or item, use the same double square brackets, but also use a colon. The text to put in the brackets is the slug for the character. Here is an example: Content Not Found: retread

If your character has no slug, you can use the ID number, like so: Content Not Found: 2.

For PCs and NPCs in your campaign, you can just use the PC/NPC Link Lookup in the sidebar to the right. It’s quite handy!

Linking to characters and items with different text

Just like wiki links, it’s possible to link to a character or item using alternate text. Here’s an example: Content Not Found: retread

HTML and Textile

To style things how you want, you can use either HTML (with some restrictions) or a simple formatting language called Textile. It’s up to you, but Textile is pretty easy, while simultaneously allowing for lots of customization.
