Codex Lore Forum
The following are the initial templates that Codex has made for the first version of the Lore Creation forum. We plan to eventually expand as we see fit and find needs of. The idea behind only starting with four categories was to get the ball rolling and allow for both the community and the Codex to get their feet wet. After that we plan on further developing the Lore section of Codex.
A note on how the Lore Forum is going to be handled. It will not have the same regimented judging as the rest of codex and how factory is run. This is essentially the answer to use having a Wikipedia without having to actually make a true Wiki. The only section of the Lore Creation that would fall under heavy judgement is the Chronicle Template. Beyond that, most of this is all going to be so that the community can flesh out other parts of their character(s) and the world around them.
The Forum will open later on this evening ~ 9pm pst. Please note that the 3 submission rule does apply within the Lore Forum as well. Please remember to be respectful and kind to other writers when submitting things on Lore. If Lore becomes a means to harass and belittle the Lore Creation will be removed and no longer discussed.
Categories Lore 1.0
Organization Template 1.0:
The organization template is meant to cover several groups, this is different than the NPC unit template for a couple of reasons. The biggest difference between the unit template is that these are to describe the organization - nothing combat wise.
The Organization Template will cover:
PC & NPC Groups that aren’t primarily meant for combat
The reason we decided to use Organizations as a template was because we did notice an increase desire to flesh out groups, such as the Mandalorian Clans, but because they were not technically NPC only groups, they didn’t really have a place in the NPC submission forum. The organization template will remedy that.
Media Template 1.0
The media template will cover the following:
The Media template will not be covering holocrons. Holocrons will still be going through the Factory for the time being. The media template allows for journals and personal recollections can also fall into this category, such as personal accounts of an invasion, rebellion or other board events.
Chronicle Template 1.0
The Chronicle template is for those that want to expand on board events in an unbiased account. These accounts are heavy in research pulling from the actual role plays and linking back to them. This allows for members who are older to elaborate on events that leaves our newer members questioning the delicate details. Also allows members who have their own events happening: such as the Member run events and the End-Game event we recently had – to have something living in description form.
The following is covered by the Chronicle Template:
Board – Wide events (Netherworld, Dark Harvest, Galactic Games)
Member run events (End Game, A.M.B.E.R. Alert)
