  • I don't see how a discussion is needed on the removal of those categories, which is why you are unable to recall one as none occurred.

    The Dishonored category doesn't actually have a description, but is about stuff in the 2012 game Dishonored. Dishonored: The Corroded Man is not in that game, it is part of the franchise, but that is not the franchise category (which doesn't exist), it is the game category, of which The Corroded Man is not a part.

    The Lore category does have a description, stating it "lists the lore of the world of the Isles." The games are not in that category, neither is Dishonored: The Wyrmwood Deceit. As none of those are, I don't see what separates The Corroded Man from those in such a way as to necessitate its place in that category.


    Also, minor thing, I removed the wolfhounds link on some other page for the same reason (and accidentally messed up the pluralisation, which you fixed), so surely we should re-add it to that one if we're going to keep it there?

    • I completely agree on the removal of those categories.

      As for the wolfhounds link (on the Prisons of the Isles page), I re-added it. No idea why you removed them in the first place. How are creatures referred to as "hounds" wolves but not wolfhounds?

    • As do i. they had no real purpose on that page,

      as for the wolfhound thing. i think they should be called wolfhounds, untill we know if they are called wolves or not. untill then call them wofhounds.

    • In the novel, it specifically states how the animals in those areas are wolves. If they were wolfhounds, I believe it would use that word, and not say wolves. I don't like the inclusion of those links, because "hounds" could refer to dogs in general (and we know that there are non-wolfhound dogs in the world of Dishonored), and in this case it clearly refers to wolves. That, or The Corroded Man is wrong, and I don't want to say that the novel is wrong simply because of the similarity between "hound" and "wolfhound". I mean, the only reason that I can see that we've put those links there is because of the similarity between those two words, ignoring the fact that the novel clearly states otherwise.

    • The Lore category is there for the same reason as it is on the Artbooks' pages. That conversation I remember on chat. The comics don't provide the same context, nor new audiographs, book excerpts, nor background lore of the Dishonored universe.

      If a discussion has been made since then, reversing that decision, then I was not privy to it.

      The Dishonored category could probably be removed as categories have indeed changed since it was added here. I'll remove the Dishonored cat again, but i would like to hear from others before removing the Lore cat.

    • But if the "hounds" in your opinion refers to "wolves" then why are they not simply called wolves? That wolves exist in the vast tundras of Tyvia does not mean that packs of hounds (a wild form of the Overseer wolfhounds, possibly, they must have originated from somwhere, after all) can't. Stop being so narrow-minded, jeez.

    • Wolves are neither hounds nor dogs, and wouldn't (or shouldn't) be referred to as such.

    • I am neither a dog person nor a hound person nor a wolf person nor a wolfhound person, but couldn't "wolves" simply be another way to refer to wolfhounds? I mean… they're wolfhounds.

      Sorry if that's ignorant.

    • According to my personal knowledge and the research I just conducted, wolves are dogs (well, members of that family at least). My personal knowledge also tells me that "hound" and "dog" are used interchangeably (even though my research tells me that's technically incorrect), so your suggestion is not unreasonable.

    • From my understanding wolves and wolfhounds are separate creatures in the Dishonored universe the same as they are in the real world.

      If this is incorrect, I am unaware of it.

    • ahhh, i see. well do whatever, was just offering my two cents.

    • Dogs refers to domesticated varieties of the canine family. Wolves are usually wild members of the canine family. Wolfhounds are usually a mix breed of both.

    • so wolves or hounds? we need one.

    • Personally, while I'm accepting that these "hounds" probably aren't wolves, I still don't think the link should be there, as the only reason we're linking the word "hounds" to wolfhounds is because of the similarity in name, and not because there's any proof that they are the same wolfhounds as are often encountered in the games. However, as always, I am willing to be overruled should the majority express a different opinion.
