Living In Shadows
Welcome to the Living in Shadows wiki!
This is our wiki Main Page. From here you can begin organizing your game, or you can continue reading to see how to edit (the main reason I’m not taking the “edit help” stuff out and making this the top level of the actual game wiki)
Basic editing tips
To get you started, here are some examples of what you can do with the wiki. To see how these work, click on the ‘Edit’ button at the bottom and just start playing around. Don’t worry, you won’t break anything.
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 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: Linking with different text
Linking to characters
For PCs and NPCs in your campaign, the easiest thing is to use the Characters button in the text area toolbar. It’s quite handy! Otherwise, the links behave much like a wiki link, just with a colon at the start.
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.
Other items of note
I’m not sure whether the Pictures button allows any formatting (cropping, resizing, etc), so use with care. Also, it does appear that special characters like accented vowels do display properly across Wintel and Mac platforms, so if you need an accented character and can’t get the HTML you can cut and paste from a web page with the character you want into the text field.
