The guys over at the PC-game Eternal Crusade want to retcon their background-story and create a go-to encyclopedia for in-game lore. Rather than setting up a new Wiki, they want to use Lexicanum as a vehicle. I suggested to one of the guys responsible for this to simply put everything into the article for Eternal Crusade, but he wants specific articles for places, people, items... http://forum.eternalcrusade.com/threads/lore-team-story-campaign-status-report-1-29-18.70447/
- Are there precautions we should take?
- Do we regard this new lore as canonical while in the writing-stage? Or do we only regard it as canonical once it has been approved by GW and shows up in the game?
- Do we regard this lore as canonical with a caveat (similar to DoW-lore and Ragnar Blackmane-lore)?
- When adding lore-info into already existing articles, should there be a disclaimer that this is EC-lore?
- When creating new articles, do we incorporate them just like any other lore from games or should we create a new name-space for Eternal Crusade-articles to indicate that this is a wiki-within-a-wiki?
- No idea.
- We should only regard this lore as canonical once it's in the game and can be sourced, because that means it has been approved by GW.
- Hard to tell whether we need a caveat: The game-mechanics clearly ignore lore. The old background-story adds a few weird things that might not fit lore. The new background-story could be true to lore.
- No idea.
- Treat them like any other similar articles.
