Those notes i mentioned in the page The Beast of Toussaint, are ONLY available during the quest. Those flyers can be picked up only while searching for Milton, not before, not after. That is why their pages (eg. Flyer touting Est Est) were created by me, because they are, apparently, very rare to players (and i love searching for rare and "hidden" items:) - my reason being here, on the wiki, to help others know about the unknown).
Thanks for the note, however just make a note of that on the individual document's pages. While it's a cool tidbit that it can only be found during that quest, it has no bearing or impact on anything else nor other interactions (for instance, if you could later take it to someone else in the quest or a later quest, that'd be fine, but as it's just there to add to the world environment, can't be worn, etc. it adds no other value).
Forgot to say, one exception are trivia bits. If, for example, they were references to another game, or actual real life documents, etc. it'd then be fine to mention on the quest page.
But what about other quests? In Blood and wine quests (for example The Man from Cintra ), there are some "Quest books" listed as well. It really helped me as well to "check" whether I have everything from there. Shame that those 3 flyers are missed by almost everyone :/
What we could do, and I've tried to do as I go along, is as I write the walkthroughs, I try to link in unique things like that. For instance "You can examine several tables here that contains letters A, B, and C" etc.
Hello, Mechemik! Why would the English Witcher Wiki not make yourself a new cursor? As for example, we have on the Russian Witcher Wiki (our cursors 1, 2)? It looked more beautiful than with a conventional cursor?
And also, why not make you badges, as we have for example? This could attract great participants and enthusiasts to work on the Wiki?
Hi, I recently left a comment on a witcher 3 wiki page, But made it with an anonymous account. I would just like to see if you could remove the comment, because I'm really paranoid about my IP address being shown :/. If you could remove it I would greatly appreciate it :)
Oh sorry, I meant to correct something on it and didn't realize I accidentally hit rollback instead. I'll fix that, I meant to keep the DLC mention on the page to make it clear that players need to download them to gain access to the quest.
It's half and half. On one hand, Salamandra and Fallen knights are very specific. Bandits, on the other hands, are pretty much everywhere in the games. I think we're better off sticking to the gangs page, as that shows more specific groups that were more well known than "bandits of abandoned site 234"
I'm going to see first if I can get a better screenshot from the videos. If not, then yeah, that could work in its place.
Also, if you see some weird images, categories, etc. on my end, sorry about that. I'm trying to get rid of useless code on pages but the only way to find them is to run my bot to get rid of part of the tag, which breaks the page's code.
Whilst on the subject of nationalites, are Novigradians Redanians? It's a free city, not sure if that typically effects the nationality status of residents. Also, what is the demonym for the Kerack characters in Season of Storms?
Uh, that's quite a difficult question to answer, I guess not, in the Eternal Flame short story I remember that Dainty addressed to che citizens of Novigrad as Novigradians, so I guess that it's a total different nationality :/ About Kerack, on the infobox there is written Kerackian, so...
I would wait for April about Kerack (then the official English translation of SoS will be out). I would consider Novigradians Redanians but if there is enough canon evidence that they are their own nationality - I'm cool.
As for Novigradians, it's tricky. In English, we use local terms for those from certain cities (like from Bronx, New York, they could be called Bronxer, referring to their city, but also New Yorker, referring to their state, and of course American, referring to their country).
That said, as Novigrad is pretty close to the equivalent of a city-state in modern terms, I'd say treat it like its own (like we do with real world examples with Monaco, Singapore, Hong Kong, etc.).
Description of Maecht's COA in Polish books is rather vague and may be interpreted 3 ways (see our page). English translator, however, gave us proper description (see SMiki's Maecht COA books) -- thats the canon. With Blood and Wine CDPR came with their own (SMiki's 2nd COA). Now you see?
Because the file isn't a png, it's a svg, which is actually a good thing for editing purposes if one has the right programs. I'll deal with it later, right now not in a spot to do a lot of image stuff at the moment.
What nationality would those of Brugge be associated with? It's another one of those iffy ones, since it's a vassal state. In Blood of Elves, those from Brugge featuring in that novel are refered to as Bruggians, but as mentioned earlier regarding Novigradians localised terms can be used in English just as much as national ones.
Venzlav, for instance, would his nationality be Bruggian, as he is from Brugge, Cintran, as Brugge may well have been a vassal state of Cintra at the time of his birth, or Temerian, since Brugge has been a vassal state since Calanthe died? Or all three! This nationality stuff is confusing me, haha.
Or does the state of being a vassal not even effect the national status of its residents? In which case does Bruggian need its own nationality page?
Well, Brugge is kinda its own Kingdom isn't it? Just too small and petty to defend itself against neighbors like Verden. It isn't like someone makes Brugge its vassal but Brugge itself requests protection (Venzlav / Calanthe & Foltest case)
I don't think we should put alive for characters that are last seen alive in a certain medium though. Even if we don't write from the perspective of the most recent date in the Saga (by which point any human character in the series would have passed away), we shouldn't really assume that just because the last instance of a character was alive means they are still alive.
Come to think of it, I don't think there is any character that is confirmed alive in the very recent (1400s/1500s) dates in the series, even characters (like elves/mages/witchers) that could feasibly still be alive in that period. Maybe Effenberg and Talbot are the only two people left, hopelessly documenting history in some shack surrounded by the White Frost, haha.
@Bizippo: Would be too confusing and not really necessary. I'd guess about 85% of the characters status on here would be "unknown" and thus make the status start to be passed over by readers if most read like that.
Not to mention get even more confusing for characters in the books (Emhyr, Crach, etc.).
Basically, it'd make itself redundant since most characters here are unknown so we just want that line to be seen when we actually have information on them. It's sort of like for every character who's nationality we don't know if we put "unknown" on each line instead of leaving it blank like we do now.
Well, I'd put unknown just for characters who fought a battle/ duel but their death wasn't “showed”, like for Sievers or Sweers (since one of the trapper said that he was still breathing although he was seriously injured and left in the desert alone). Other characters I'd just put alive.
Hey Mechemik! I'm Jamie from FANDOM's Community Development team! Not sure if we never asked you guys if you are interested in turning on the Discussions feature for this community, and migrating the Threaded Forums across as well.</span>
In case you are unaware of the feature, Discussions was introduced last year to help communities engage with users and fans. It lives in its own space on the wiki and allows users to interact with other members of the community. It is also mobile friendly and gives mobile users a chance to contribute and engage with the community, and possibly turn them into wiki editors as well. Discussions also links with our FANDOM Apps, which this community has and it allows app users to easily take part in Discussions as well. You can read more about Discussions here.
For more information on migrating forums to Discussions, you can check out this blog over on Community Central that explains everything in detail.
If you have some concerns, Discussions, and Forums can exist side-by-side in case you do not want to migrate just yet. However, eventually all Forums will be migrated over to Discussions and Forums will be sunsetted as a feature, so getting ahead of the curve is never a bad idea.
Feel free to have an open discussion with your community/admins about this, and I'm available for any questions you might have. Have a good one!
Hello! I, the administrator of the Russian-speaking community Witcher Wiki would like to conclude with your wiki official cooperation and friendship. Administrator Juraj103 agreed to this offer. I've already added your logo to our title. Add now and our logo to yourself on the title. Can you do it?
Should this image be used in place of the other, low-res one from extracted from the game files? Also, the existence of this makes me believe that the other images were originally high-res jpeg images that were compressed into dds files so that they could be rendered more easily in-engine. I wonder if it would be possible to find the better ones if they exist.
We try to use direct file images for both consistency and to prevent any odd warping (like you can see with that image because it's from the book). It's likely there are larger scale images around, but finding them may not be possible if they're not in the games files.
Also, make sure to check image files before adding any new ones. For example, we already had the map files on hand.
Are you saying that the one from the book is warped? Sorry about added images that already existed, I will check from now on. Also, I'll try to contact one of the community people at CD Project to see if they can provide better pictures.
Hey, they actually sent me the original high-res art. :D I've asked them for the Radovid poster as well and will post it if they send it. As you can see, the degree of detail is substantially better (You can actually make out the Temerian flag). It would be a good idea to update the posters on the article to these, dont you think?
Awesome! Were they in another format or were you given a .jpg file? And yeah, we can definitely update the pages now by updating the original image since they're the same, just now a much better resolution.
