Project Name: Dark Places site for convention use
Project Status: Magenta – Waiting for feedback (still) also getting files together.
Project Lead: Andrew J Trujillo
Project Description: The creation of a city or group of cities in a Dark Place for use in non-Cam conventions. May also see use in IRC games, proxies, etc. A pre-determined location will allow these unusual situations to participate in the Global chronicle, without awkward explanations concerning the presence and/or absence of assorted supernatural creatures.
South Africa is right out. Nairobi is in!!!
Project Summary: Baby steps.
Issues and Risks: Still waiting for feedback.
Project Name: Dark Places on the Map Wiki
Project Status: Lots Left to Do
Project Lead: Rachel Judd, US2006027424
Project Description: The Dark Places on the Map Wiki was created to give players a way to quickly learn about who and what has happened in the Dark Places, as well as provide inspiration for players who want to have a character involved with a Dark Place.
Project Summary: I made whole pages for the following cities: Blagoveshchenk, Alexandria, Tangier, Hong Kong, Jerusalem, Istanbul, Northern Ireland, the Sudan and Orleans. Istanbul also needed some of the player-added content edited for grammar and ease of reading. I created a template to be used for South American cities. I also discovered that the page for Cuba was in need of a serious overhaul - the graphics were too large, the information on the page needed to be re-organized according to the templates I devised, and a great deal of content needed to be edited for style, grammar and spelling. I also edited the page for Africa as a whole - I thought it was far too cluttered with links to Wikipedia, and I added a brief historical blurb about each region to give players ideas about designing characters from the region. Southern Africa, Middle Africa, Northern Africa and Western Africa were edited in this respect.
My goal for the next month is to have the majority of the wiki ready for far more player-created content to be added by the time the next report is due.
Significant Changes: None to report, other than adding significant content to the pages listed above.
