View Full Version : Creating A Gaming Wiki

I was curious if anyone had any idea how to develop their own gaming/writing/development wiki. I'm looking for offline capability for this wiki, as well, since I really don't want to post my development information on a website as yet.

The reason I ask is because I would like to write down and organize my thoughts in a wiki format where subject matter is linked much like a wiki.

Obsidian Portal allows you to create a private wiki if you're a subscriber. Only 39.99 a year. And you can organize it so there is player information and private GM info. Very slick, easy to use, and you don't have to bother installing software, etc. Just focus on creating. :-)

If you asking how to organize a gaming wiki, I haven't a clue. If you're looking for wiki host, try Wikidot (http://community.wikidot.com/). Your wiki can be private, public, or semi-private. It also has more advance formatting, which allows more tweaking of the wiki.

If you just want a wiki for your own use, consider TiddlyWiki (http://tiddlywiki.com/). This creates a wiki on your machine so nobody else can see it or mess with it.

Here's my free online wiki, which is all about my free RPG:

There is an option to "download" your site too, but Obsidian Portal emphasizes that this is for backup purposes only.

Just spotted this thread. I'm currently playing in a Space 1889 campaign, and a couple of months ago the GM set up this wiki (http://archaeannexus.wikispaces.com) for it. It looks pretty decent, but don't ask me how it works, I've got no idea! But anyway, if it helps... [Btw I'm the Reverend Nathaniel Birch]
