From RPC Library
Welcome to the RPC's Final Fantasy XIV Wiki!
Tailored specifically to suit the needs of roleplayers, the wiki includes fan-gathered and developer posted lore, profiles for NPC's (in-game non-playable characters), and an extremely expansive library of your fellow roleplayers' PC's (Playable Characters).
As the game develops this wiki will update and expand, so feel free to contribute in every way possible to make this the most extensive library for roleplayers!
Getting Started Q&A
How do I log in to the Wiki?
Logging in is the very first step of creating a wiki, simply click the 'log in' button on the top right corner and use your RPC credentials to access the site. You can still look over the wiki without logging in, but you will not be able to create or edit anything! If you have any issues logging in, please contact an admin on the RPC.
How do I start a Wiki page for my character?
Fear not! The wiki looks daunting at first, but if you pay close attention you could have your page fleshed and done in no time! The best thing to do before you even begin is browse over the other profiles and see what others have done with their wikis! Inspiration is always good when taking on a project like this.
After you've finished perusing (or creeping) others character pages, it's time to make your own! Simply go to the Character Profile page, and in the top right corner 'Create' search box and type in your character name. Please search first and last name, for organizational purposes! Your search will create a page under that character name!
Alright, I've got a blank page for my character. Now what?
At this point, most people will use a template to create their wikis. A basic template with instructions can be found in the menu bar under 'Wiki Tutorials' labeled 'Character Page'. Most people request permission to use the templates of other characters already created. If you use a template of another character, please ensure to credit the creator appropriately in your annotations, and always get permission first!
After that it becomes a fill in the blanks regarding your character! You are free to provide as much or as little information as possible! Please also note this is OOC information unless otherwise noted (for example, rumours) and should be treated as such.
Okay, I've got it all filled out, but what if it sucks and no one reads it?
Don't think that! Wikis get a lot of attention, and a good bulk of the community loves to read them. It also helps with collaboration, and finding people you would like to interact closer with! Think of it as a networking tool.
If you aren't sure about something on your wiki, or want some feedback, the RPC forums are a great place to ask questions and get some assistance, or send out a PM. Don't ever be afraid to ask questions!
