Life in a new wiki

Hello Radaghast! Now all pages from D&D Wiki have been imported under the namespace DnDWiki here, thanks to wikia central. They also told me the following:

I have redirected the home page of, but you can still access the original in the history at

I have added a sitenotice on the wiki telling people about the new location, and I have locked down so that only admins can edit it. This should prevent people accidentally editing there instead of at

We still have to work out some details about what/how to adapt articles to move them from the DnDWiki namespace to the rest of the wiki.
I hope you will join us here. You will remember that Surgo offered to give you admin rights here. Daranios 15:26, June 29, 2010 (UTC)

Hello Radaghast! It's been some time now since we have moved - again. At lot of work has been done at the new site so far. I am still sad to see that activity is split between two D&D Wikis here and there. I guess you would not be interested in joining there after all?
The "old" DnD Wiki articles have largely been adapted into a "Canon" section, but the main activity has stayed with homebrew articles. Contributions would be very welcome, especially in the Canon section. Whatever you do, all the best. Daranios 19:12, March 1, 2012 (UTC)
It looks like they are planning on COPYING all the content from wikia wikis. How sad.
You might also want to go through Special:ListUsers and remove old admins and rollbacks that haven't logged in or edited here in a very long time.--Sxerks (talk) 15:53, March 1, 2013 (UTC)
As discussed: Only the contents of those related wikis that do not seem to prosper on their own. Daranios (talk) 20:17, March 1, 2013 (UTC)

Community Messages

Hey Radaghast,

I have removed the forking notice on the Wiki Activity page. It's been nearly four months since the move and I think it's time that the community should be able to move forward. I would strongly encourage you to leave a positive welcome message to the members of the community introducing yourself! You can leave that message at MediaWiki:Community-corner. Cheers, --daNASCAT WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 18:38, March 2, 2011 (UTC)

Author Template SMW Changes

I noticed that you removed the {{#set: property=stuff}} from the author template. We were using that for semantic data relating to author and balance levels in a page, but it looks like wikia has disabled that particular notation here. There's alternate notations you could use if you wanted to continue using the semantic data I can point you at, or you're welcome to migrate it to a form you prefer.

..... Actually, after looking around a bit more it seems that SMW has been disabled in general. Ask queries don't work on nav pages, properties aren't being set on pages... Yeah, that completely destroys our a fair number of our templates, almost all of 3.5e navigation, and a portion of the 4e navigation. DPL queries seem to work though, so if you wanted to migrate nav pages like 3.5e Races to a setup more like 4e Races things would probably work. - TarkisFlux 22:47, March 2, 2011 (UTC)


Could you delete what remains of my pages? (Found here.) Good luck with the admin position! --Franken Kesey 14:46, April 5, 2011 (UTC)

Sure. Good luck at the new place! There's some bug with the colour of the links to deleted articles (at least on my machine they appear to be blue), but your content has been deleted. --Radaghast Kary 15:08, April 5, 2011 (UTC)


Thanks for your help on Talk:Eyes of the Lich Queen, I am still learning how this is set up, do you know why some pages are preceded by SRD? I am unsure what sets them apart from other ones. Ty 06:30, July 21, 2011 (UTC)

It has something to do with the licensing: all regular articles are free content requiring only attribution of the authors and sharing the derivative content alike (CC-BY-SA), while the SRD content is freely distributed only if Open Game License v1.0a is cited and its conditions hold. --Radaghast Kary 11:39, July 21, 2011 (UTC)

why didn't you leave?

Hi, this is pretty random, but why didn't you relocate? Lol, sorry, it just came to my mind. I mean, i saw your reason that the wiki has alot of potential, but they did offer you an admin position on the new site so you could have worked with it, and i assume it has as much potential as this site has/did, and all the stuff here moved their. I'm not trying to butt inn and sound like a you-know-what, so don't take it that way please. It's just a friendly question. Liosrakia 03:25, July 26, 2011 (UTC)

Well, it's not like I'm actively opposing the move or anything, but I do have a couple of wikis here on Wikia that are alive and kicking (like the Russian Tabletop RPG one or the Salveblues Campaign Setting one), so even if I "move" elsewhere, I will still need to stay here as well (or move all my projects, which I can hardly be bothered to do). So, I thought, if I'm staying anyway, why not keep an eye on this wiki as well. I still sincerely wish you all the best at the new place, though! --Radaghast Kary 20:52, August 31, 2011 (UTC)


Hello there! I was wondering if you'd be willing to do me a huge favor. I would greatly appreciate it if you could delete one of the classes that I posted here That particular peice of work is special to me, and I'd like it taken down if thats at all possible. I moved to a different Wikia and my other work isnt as big of a deal but this one means more to me. Thank you very much in advance, I really do appreciate it! -James The-Marksman 12:22, August 18, 2011 (UTC)

Hi James, it's not like I didn't notice your request, but Tarkisflux did it first. Good luck at the new place where you moved to! --Radaghast Kary 20:52, August 31, 2011 (UTC)


Hey, is there a Dungeons and Dragons Fanon Wiki you could direct me to? I really need a place to put some of my monsters. --Pinguinus impennis 04:23, August 30, 2011 (UTC)

Why not just do it here? Just put your monsters in the main namespace and mark them as homebrew, and reuse whatever you need from the SRD. This wiki is also meant for monsters created by contributors, not only for canon stuff! --Radaghast Kary 20:52, August 31, 2011 (UTC)

I was just wondering why on the powers template it sais action type::, it looks rather ugly and it would be much better looking if it just said At-Will or Standard Action

-User talk:Pixie1001

Well, it's a legacy from the times when this wiki tried to use some fancy extensions in order to simplify some queries like “give me all at-will powers”. I’m slowly working towards removing it or at least hiding so that the result looks normal. --Radaghast Kary 14:37, January 25, 2012 (UTC)

Hello. I was wondering if you knew about any sites where I can find comprehensive D&D background. I am not really interested in the gaming portion of it, and instead want to find out more about the settings, but have had a hard time finding info in one place. --Supahbadmarine 18:27, January 24, 2012 (UTC)

Hi there! In English, I usually start with the corresponding wikipedia article and then work through the links and other google requests. There is much more information density at places where such data is aimed to be collected, and the first one to come to my mind is of course the Russian RPG wiki that I’ve founded ;) Not sure how good can google translate propagate it to you, but we have remarkably comprehensive texts on Planescape, Ravenloft, Warhammer and some other settings. As well as lots of indie rpgs. --Radaghast Kary 14:37, January 25, 2012 (UTC)


I would like to use some of the campaign settings, put them in a file and post them on an open source RPG site. I would not be claiming the setting as my own, but just uploading them as a file. Would this be fine? Thanks

Hi there! All the information available from Wikia, including this wiki, is licensed under CC-BY-SA, which means that you can put it in a file and distribute from your own website, as long as you provide a link to the original page(s) and tell explicitly that the text is not yours, but rather taken from the editors here. If you will be using SRD materials, that has an additional OGL licensing. Hope this suffices! --Radaghast Kary 17:26, June 7, 2012 (UTC)

All right, Thanks!

Thanks a lot for helping fight off the vandals and strange content! (Also with the archetyper). --Radaghast Kary 19:41, July 15, 2012 (UTC)

Can you add a Heading for AD&D 2nd Edition? We started playing this at the hobby store near me as a nice simple diversion.

Spell Compendium

Hey! I want to work on adding the Spell Compendium to this wiki... only problem is the format's a pain to work out, and I'm not sure which categories to use for which spells. Could you help me out? I've already done Blackfire and Barghest's Feast. Cheers! --Luigifan18 (talk) 05:57, September 22, 2012 (UTC)

Nonsense page has gotta go

Somebody made a page at the namespace "THACO"... saying it's utter rubbish would be an understatement. Could you please delete it? Thanks. --Luigifan18 (talk) 01:21, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

I'm A First Edition 'purist' and not sure how editions 3.5 and 4 work,so i'm a bit unsure how i can help with the wiki and help get more DnD players in to the frame of things, and i have nearly every 1st edition AD&D sourcebook, i will help any way i can.

I got someone who needs blocking

Hey there user: blanked the page Warlock (3.5e Class)

And I reverted the edit just check the User Contributions

can you block this person, please?

Yakonani (talk) 17:25, February 18, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks! I'll keep an eye on Special:Contributions/ — it seems like so far there's only been one edit from that IP, so perhaps that would be it. --Radaghast Kary (talk) 09:25, February 19, 2013 (UTC)

I think you might want to warn this person

i looked at user talk:Baclktn and i think it might be advertising something

and i think it is not allowed by wiki rules

here is a link User:Baclktn

Yakonani (talk) 09:29, February 20, 2013 (UTC)

Yet another spammer

User: made a spam page; here is a link Page Count::761

You might want to look at the Contributions page for this user here : Yakonani (talk) 12:02, February 24, 2013 (UTC)

I think this is an advert

You should take a look at user:Thuhang’s page

It looks to be an advert on technical writing

You might find me annoying, but I am happy do anything to help

I have to tell you because a can not block them my self Yakonani (talk) 12:15, February 24, 2013 (UTC)

No problem, thanks for keeping an eye on weird things around here! Well, for the case of Thuhang… actually people should be allowed to put anything on their userpages, but given that (s)he is not contributing elsewhere, I still removed at least the links. Thanks agin! --Radaghast Kary (talk) 14:51, March 3, 2013 (UTC)

Ia, an Eladrin Ranger, level 4. I have 2 gals of white dragon blood. What properties might it afford me? Can I dip my arrows in it to increase damage?

Game for a beginner

Hi, I'm looking for a good DnD board game. I'm new to DnD. I've never played it before , but would like to buy one. Which one would you suggest for me? I'd like one that offers a good story and adventure. Please reply The Dark Soul (talk) 11:20, May 22, 2013 (UTC)

More Rubbish

Please can you take a look at these User Contributions ( Spam ) ( Spam ) ( Spam )

Yakonani (talk) 14:47, June 1, 2013 (UTC)

I'm a 1st edition AD&D DM, and have no knowledge of how 3.5e or 4e works, so I was wondering if we can create a small section for 1e and 2e homebrew. Do epic spells actually exist in 3.5 and 4e D&D?, as 110d12 damage from the nuke spell when I last looked seemed a little excessive...

More spam

Can you take a look at this user for me please.

This is the spammed page

Yakonani (talk) 18:55, December 17, 2013 (UTC)

Deleted the spammed page. Daranios (talk) 16:08, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

Just Some Spam

I found a page that just has "Ballesekk bs" on it can you get rid of it please.

In the last Revisions it had:

As of 13:01, February 11, 2014: "Myaah"

Revision as of 13:02, February 11, 2014: "SAKKI FOR ET SVIN DU E!!!" and "MYAAH!!!!"

Revision as of 15:05, February 11, 2014: "Ballesekk bs"

Here is the link.

Aso, The page: Electrum Piece‎ may want to be marked as a sub or gotten rid of all that is on the page is:

2 electrum coins aka pieces = 1 gold coin aka pieces

I can not work out what that is.

New player orientation

Hi Radaghast,

A few Wikia employees are newly interested in D&D, so we were thinking about adding / modifying some content about getting new players into D&D. In addition, we'd be happy to help out with any maintenance needed. Let me know if you have any concerns or feedback. (Also this is just us as players, not at all on behalf of Wikia :)

Portuguese D&D

Hi, Radaghast

I wanna know how to start a new language version. The Portuguese speakers that play D&D are countless  but as you can see English is not   majority's best skill. I see there is a Japanese version, so apparently it's not a problem.

So for the Dungeons and Dragons Wikia page, do you want some help with the content on the 5th edition? I could help somewhat, since I have the Player's Handbook. Pastlife17 (talk) 17:10, December 2, 2015 (UTC)

Dancing Lights


New user/contributor here. I added a page for the 5e spell "Dancing Lights" here:

I wonder if you wouldn't mind looking it over and make sure I formatted and categorized it correctly. If you have any tips on the easiest way to add such a page, I would be much obliged. Also, if it's not too much trouble, I'd like to get credit for entering that page. I created it before I had created my account.

Thanks for letting me be part of this awesome wiki! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Wellsdb (talkcontribs) 13 December 2015

Perfectly formatted and categorised, hats off! For me it has taken a couple of hundreds edits to learn how to make the references list so perfect ;) I’ve edited it a bit to link to the SRD version, though... Thanks and all the best with your next edits! --Radaghast Kary (talk) 00:37, December 13, 2015 (UTC)


So im new to this Wikia, how may i help? :)

Looking for a bit of direction

Hey there! I stumbled on this wiki, and have realized there's a lot of maintenance that needs to happen. I've taken the morning to do a little bit of some of the most glaring stuff, but I'd like a little direction on what things are appropriate for me to do as a user, or should be left for an administrator. Also, I'm probably missing a lot of stuff, so I'd like some hints on what I can help with.

Additionally, there's a few things that I noticed need some changing that only an admin can do. Specifically, the wiki navbar needs some serious attention...

  • Canon Material has no dropdowns, which could easily be utilized to separate the different canons for each edition
  • Editions tab links to nonexistent page.
  • Editions dropdowns have links that go to deleted pages, and doubled links to Homebrew pages, as well as "temporary navigation page"s (whatever those really are).

I would suggest setting it up so that you have something more like...

  • Canon Material
    • E1
    • E2
    • E3
    • E4
    • E5
  • Homebrew Material
    • E1
    • E2
    • E3
    • E4
    • E5
