2005-06-16 [Pinkdonkey]: hi ! is this wiki working and can we sign up or not ??

2005-06-24 [xido]: I can't promise a quick beginning, but you can post your name and keep watch on the page. It will be mostly informational, basing on D&D concepts, but there will also be room for otherworldly ideas and concept discussion, toward the end. Maybe this will be several classes, but I will try to make it simple to begin with. If you wish to contribute as an educated teacher on the subject, you may, but please let any final posts be looked over and edited by me, to fit the purposes of my own tabletop games based off of these wikis. Jashnia and the other Children of Selen are the main worlds of focus, and a further discussion could touch on topics like religion, evolution, etc.

2005-07-02 [xido]: Just adding in some links for future use. The first is an image gallery for the D&D book, Draconomicon, and the second is a full list of the D&D books and publications that art galleries are featured on.

2005-07-02 [xido]: It's a start. Anything else you'd like to know, that couldn't be covered there?

2005-07-02 [Pinkdonkey]: nope, I think everything's there =)

2005-10-10 [xido]: I think this could be run in a class-format style, with student/teahcer interaction, or it could be an info page, or whatever.

2005-10-12 [Nicolai Antredias]: this could be intresting

2005-11-02 [xido]: add your name, and I'll try to get it moving along soon... I will most definitely accept the help, no matter what it is... If I think it totally doesn't fit, I'll just edit it to make it fit. Otherwise, it's all in the book. ;)

2006-07-17 [xido]: This page is functional, though class material is still undergoing construction, since according to copyright law, it must be my own interpretation of the material, and not copied information. This class also will specifically refer to the use of such fantasy and real-world terms as they apply to Earth, to the Wiki Fiction Roleplay / Wiki Fantasy Roleplay, and the WFR's most common realm, Jashnia of the Selenar System. Anyone interested and willing to contribute info from their own WFR-supported realm is welcome to do so, upon proper application by [xido]. Feel free to field questions and comments to the Open Forum Classroom Area. Thanks, and best wishes!  -will

2006-08-10 [Hiuko]: Wow, this is big.

2006-08-15 [xido]: This is true. But, it will be complete and effective. ;)
Hopefully I will get my laptop fixed soon enough so that I can begin writing it out... :(
