FANDOM


The following are formatting templates to use when filling in sections of the Campaign Setting, by using these we can ensure that all the information is stored in a uniform way that will help to keep the wiki simple and easy to use.

When writing in the wiki, some simple rules to follow are:

  • Whenever possible, link up your new information to existing pages in the wiki by clicking the source button and using the code [[page|text]] where 'page' is the end of the destination page's url and text is the word that will be displayed. eg. to link to 'http://l4w.wikia.com/wiki/L4W:Daunton#The_Great_Library' you would put [[L4W:Daunton#The_Great_Library|The great Library]]. If the information you are adding is from a character's background, please provide a link to that character's sheet.


  • If you want to expand on something you mention enough to warrant it's own page, simply surround the word with [[ ]] then when you save the page you can follow the link to a new wiki article.


  • Whenever you reference something that occurred in an adventure, please provide a link to the appropriate post in the L4W forums like so [url text], eg. [http://www.enworld.org/forum/living-4th-edition/274209-discussion-new-wiki-site.html New Wiki Discussion Thread].
