Adding New Maps to the Wiki

  • New Maps need their own page. See the layout below.
  • Add the map to any disambiguations or related pages that may be appropriate.
  • Add the new map and its stats to the Treasure Map, Scroll Case, and Treasure Chest pages.
  • Create redirects for the treasure chests to point to the Treasure Chest subsection on the map page
  • Any information about the map that is likely to become stale should either be placed in the History and Trivia section or avoided completely.

Map Page Layout

The Map pages are as laid out below. This can also be used as the basic structure in creating a new Map page. Note that the sections should always be laid out in the order in which they are shown below, which is in the order of importance that most players will consider the information.

Bold the map name wherever it appears on the page to help guide the user's eye to relevant info. Follow the bolding and capitalization conventions outlined in the included examples to help provide a consistent look and feel to the various cheese pages.

Article starts with the Maps Template. Please use the rtoc template to show the table of contents on the right side of the page.

Note that the LLL, Image and Description will all refer to the Scroll Case where the map is found.
