  • Hey there, long time no see :p

    I was skulking around some wikis, looking for a bit of inspiration to spruce up the main page on my current haunting grounds , and I've always enjoyed the look of the headers here. Do you think anyone would mind if I yoinked the css for MainpageHeading to see if I could work something out over there?

    • Good to see you again. :)

      Though I am definitely not the person who designed it, I don't think anyone would have a problem with it. I haven't seen any other staff here for a year+ save for Piko and even with her it has been over three months ago.

    • Sweet, thanks, and I hope the old crew, yourself included, is doing well.^^ This place has certainly gotten less busy but it's encouraging to see that people are still editing despite how long ago D2 came out.

  • Hey Geist, what do you think about a page on Environmental Hazards (needs better name) such as louderspeaker, wooden logs, steam vents, electric boxes? Basically what protagonist can interact or manupulate in the levels to gain upperhand against enemies. We have one for throwable objects and one for key hole, I feel these things deserve one as well, especially since they are often overlooked.

    Also I'm replaying D2 at the moment and plan to cataloging quotes from Mesmerize power. Probably not from generic NPCs but from targets and named NPC. One quite gave us insight into Jindosh's childhood, hopefully they can give us more information as well.

    • Oh wow, my apologies for it taking me this long to reply. I don't remember getting the alert which is weird as I tend to follow a good percentage of nearly everything here.

      That aside, we do have a page called Inspectable Objects. Is what you're talking about something like that?

      Also, the Mesmerize quotes sound good. I understand you were referring to primary targets, but I never mind anything that gives us more quotes. If people want to go through the trouble of getting such quotes even from Generic people, that's fine by me.

      We should probably make it it's own page, sorta like the The Heart/Quotes page rather than tacking it onto the Mesmerize page directly. The breakdown of the quote page sets up a nice precedence for how to organize it as well.

    • Hey Geist, no worries :) I was talking about "environmental traps" that you can interact with to kill or stun enemies. But nevermind about it, I listed them out and I don't think there is enough information to guarant a page. Here are what I have if you're curious:

      • Loudspeakers: shoot to drop them on enemies
      • Wooden logs (can be found in front of Wall of Light in Campo Seta or the big yard in Shindaerey Peak): shoot the red thingy to drop the logs on nearby enemies, killing them
      • Steam vents: those red hot pipes that when hit, release steam, stunning enemies.
      • Electric boxes: if you shoot the panels, they release a electrical charge that knock out nearby enemies.

      Totally agreed about Mesmerize quotes, I will make a subpage for that and move existing qoutes there.

  • Hey, it's been long since I've done more than peeping into the activity page. A lot of stuff happened to me during the past year, and honestly I still haven't even read the last Dishonored novel. I hope you're doing fine too. :)

    I've been following the news about the RP book. Is it actually worth buying just for interesting world lore bits? I'm curious about the content besides the game rules but don't actually plan to do any RP with it. Not that I'm not interested, but I don't have any friends who enjoy RP sessions, nor do I have much experience with any RP. Also with the current situation in France, RP sessions would have to be played through WhatsApp or Skype calls. /:

    • I got that update too but it seems minor.

      Also if Geist is good with it, I'll publish the page.

    • Agreed, it just seems one page or so is changed.

      And yes! Looks good. :)

  • Hello, MDGeistMD02!

    I was strolling around in the wiki and I noticed something we could improve: while we have very precise categories, for example, for the City Watch and Grand Guard members, the same can't be applied for other characters/groups. The Brigmore Witches, Delilah included, are under the category of "Supernatural", which includes a lot of things like powers, runes and so on. It could be more precise and less vague adding a categorie for them ("Brigmore Witches"?). Same with the "Gangs" category (Bottle Street, Whalers, Hatters, Howlers...). 

    I hope I managed to explain myself clearly; otherwise, I'm sorry. 

    (Also: in the Italian version of Dishonored, Callista Curnow is written as "Kalista Curnow"; can I add this to her trivias?)

  • Hi, MDGeistMD02!

    I wanted to ask you when an user is allowed to create a page about unseen characters, like Captain Galloway's. In other words, what are the requirements. I wanted to create a page about Fenella Reid, an unseen character mentioned in Dishonored 2 by three written notes: Letter from Boyle Accounting ServiceAnonymous Letter and Warehouse Key. There is enough material for an article, but I wasn't sure after reading the Manual of Style; so, I thought it was a better idea asking to a moderator.

    Thank you for your attention, hoping I didn't bother you in any way.

    • Greetings! My apologies for so late a reply to your message.

      I double-checked the notes in question that you linked and I don't see any problem with doing a page for that character.

      As for requirements for an Unseen Character there isn't really a set of them as far as I know; it's more of a case by case basis. Usually though, we kinda choose characters who appear in more than one note and who have a bit more information than just their name or title. Appearing in multiple expansions also helps such as with the case of Captain Galloway.

      However, we also make exceptions with characters such as Jelly who was kind of a fan/community favorite making only two appearances in notes and not having a lot of info. Two moderators (Piko and myself) actually consulted about this in Live! Chat before the page was made and we weighed the ins and outs of it before proceeding though.

      That said, you may proceed with your new page whenever you wish and if you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask. :)

  • Hi. I'm a huge Dishonored fan and frequently visit the Dishonored Wiki. I was looking at the page on the Burglar challenge and noticed it doesn't include a trivia entry relating to how you (for unknown reasons) wield the Assassin's blade instead of Corvo's sword when playing the "Expert" version of the challenge. I think it's an interesting tidbit of information, arguably worthy of being a trivia point on the page. What do you think? 

    Thanks for all the work you've put into running this wiki!

    • Greetings and welcome to the wiki!

      My sincere apologies for taking this long to get back to you. :(

      Yes, if you have trivia related to the Burglar challenge that is not up on the page, please feel free to add it. I don't usually play the Dunwall City Trials, never really play on expert, and it's been so long that even if I had done the two former things, I don't remember.

      Thank you for your interest in the wiki and again my apologies for taking so long a period to reply.

  • Hey, ich habe gesehen, dass du auch im deutschsprachigen Dishonored Wiki aktiv bist, daher formuliere ich mein Anliegen mal auf deutsch. Ich bin der Leiter einer interatkiven Schauspielgruppe und arbeite momentan an einer Geschichte, die im Dishonored Universum spielt. Die anderen beiden Hauptgeschichten entspringe komplett meinem Gedankengut und der Kreativität der restlichen Köpfe dieser Gruppe. Ich belese mich schon seit einigen Tagen in diesem Wiki über die Welt von Dishonored und bin von eurer Arbeit ziemlich überwältigt. (Ein Lob an dieser Stelle) Ich müsste für einen erfolgreichen Verlauf der Geschichte nun Informationen aus diesem Wiki, mit dazu gedichteten Charakteren und Städten verbinden. Anschließend wollte ich diese inoffiziellen Informationen in unser Schauspielwiki hochladen. Im Endeffekt habt ihr euch aber die Arbeit gemacht die ganze Lore aus den Dishonored Spielen herauszuschreiben und ich hätte ein schlechtes Gewissen dabei mein Vorhaben in die Tat umzusetzen ohne mit jemanden Rücksprache gehalten zu haben. Es bleibt zu erwähnen, dass wir nicht kommerziell arbeiten, es geht nur darum ein paar Menschen mal eine Auszeit vom Alltag zu gewähren. Weiterführend würden wir in jedem Beitrag einen Link zum englischsprachigen Dishonored Wiki hinzufügen.

    • Hallo,

      ich übernehme hier mal. Zunächst einmal möchte ich mich für die späte Antwort entschuldigen, ich habe erst heute von deiner Anfrage erfahren, da ich leider nicht mehr so aktiv bin.

      Du darfst die Infos auf dieser Seite gerne für deine Geschichte benutzen, ein Verweis auf dieses Wiki wäre nett.

      Ein Link hier zu deinem Schauspielwiki wäre auch schön, da ich mir das gerne mal ansehen möchte. Keine Angst, ich will dich nicht kontrollieren, ich finde lediglich deine Pläne spannend. ;)

      Wenn du noch Fragen hast, kannst du dich gerne an mich wenden.

  • Greetings! I was wandering around the wiki (and let me tell you, you all did a really great job here) and noticed a little detail: there isn't any page for Mariah, a witch enemy you can encounter in Dishonored 2 during "The Clockwork Mansion" mission (she will appear on Lower Aventa after rescuing Sokolov). She also carries a note, where you can learn her name, which is recorded here among the others.  I was wondering if I could create her page, but being an user who never contributed before, I tought it was wiser asking to an admin the permit before anything. Being an assiduous visitor here, I'm pretty accustomed to the wiki's format and style rules, but asking doesn't hurt, does it? 

    Thank you for the attention, hoping it wasn't a bothersome question.

    • I'm sorry for bothering you again, but I have a question (and I hope this is the right place). I wanted to edit Jacobi's page, adding all the informations about his childhood revealed in My Family's Bones. However, I can't manage to add the reference, and a wording continues to pop out, saying that tag ref exists, but no references/ tag was found. 

      I also cheked the manual of style and other pages to get an idea about an eventual error in my coding, but I can't find it. Could you kindly help me? Also, should the reference be applied after all that biography part? It's not a simple sentence, after all, and I would not like to make a mistake. 

        Loading editor
    • As long as all of the information is relatively close together, such as within the same paragraph or two, then one ref tag would be all you would need, especially if it comes from the same source.

      As for the info, add it first and then we can see what the problem is from there. :)

  • Hey there, Geist. First off, long time no see; it's good to see you're still around. :)

    More importantly though, as the last of the old guard who's still kicking around, I was wondering what your thoughts are on me adding IPA pronunciation guides for major characters, locations, and the like.

    • Greetings, Dark-Eyed One,

      Always good to see one of the OG (Original Gamers :D) here. Pauolo and Piko make occasional appearances now and then, but not as often anymore. Hope you're doing well. :)

      As to your query, are you talking a guide like a blog or something similar? I don't really think it's needed on the individual pages but a blog would be fine if you so wish. :)

      Let me know.

    • Actually, "pronunciation guides" are very compact and are meant to immediately succeed the name as stated in the beginning of the page, on each page. Thus, for Corvo, it would look something like this: Corvo Attano (/ˈkɔrvoʊ  əˈtɑnoʊ/) is the protagonist...

      Admittedly, for people not familiar with the IPA it may be frivolous, but they are pretty standard for most proper names on Wikipedia and the like, if that's any indication of their usefulness.

        Loading editor
    • I've never had them on any I've admin-ed on, and can't really say I've seen them on others I have visited in a non-admin capacity; I may have, but might have just skimmed past them? I dunno for sure.

      While interesting, it just doesn't seem like something we've needed here. As I said, if you wanna do a blog or something, please feel free.
