I think we should start adding stuff about the collaborative fantasy universe.

The question here is they're on the same website. Should just add fantasy verse tropes on here, or make a new page?

Why is this on literature? It's not in a book, it's on the internet. I think Web original, or possibly even Fan Fic is better suited for this.

Web novels (excepting fanfic) go in Literature/. They are literature, with literature tropes, just in a different format.

The Spore Wikifiction universe isn't quite a fanfic because it is is only very loosely tied with Spore. The only real connection to the game itself is the presence of the Grox and possibly the jump drive. However with the latter, most civilizations in the setting use more traditional FTL drives.

Apparently somebody added a Character Sheet.

Are there any actual characters to note about this Work besides species? We don't have a CS for those anymore.

I haven't read the works but there's couple issues I noticed with the pages.

  • None of the pages were indexed. I took care of that, though you could get two more indexes if you could tell me what year this thing started.
  • The Drakodominatus character sheet is an absolute mess.
    • First off as per this forum thread we're no longer allowing the use of the Characters namespace for entire species. The existing pages should contain individual people (and judging by the Sugar Wiki tabs, there are actual characters in this), but see the bottom of the Mass Effect page for another option if you want to keep a collection of tropes by race.
    • Second, the page has no description, incorrect formatting (you don't boldface the trope lists), and are stuffed with Zero Context Examples (including a use of Complete Monster, which per a major wiki cleanup now requires approval for use).

EDIT: Amended.

Hey there. Thanks for pointing out the flaws. You see, I tried to index the pages a while ago but I really couldn't find out how to. And before you say anything, yes I read the instructions and no, they didn't really help.

About species, it's something I've shown to other users and we are sorting out what to do with them. The Drakodominatus page will certainly be completely rewritten at some point, it has always bothered me how the creator just put the tropes there and didn't do anything with them after.

And yes, there are many, MANY characters.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
