Create Your Character Page

From Dark City

If you're not familiar with this platform, don't worry. Creating a Character Page is really easy, and we made it even easier.

  • Login: Make sure that you have a wiki login, and that you are logged in. In the top right of the screen, you may see a link to log in / create account. If you do, then you are not logged in. Click that link, and log in.

  • Create!: Enter the full name of your character above, as you want it to appear on the Page. You'll be taken to a new page that says "Creating (Your Name)" with seventeen lines of code. Update the following two, then press Save Changes:
    • In the 5th row, replace YOUR_USERNAME with your wiki login name. For example, played by = {{User:Pax}}
    • In the 15th row, or third from the bottom, replace YOUR_FACECLAIM with the Faceclaim's name. For example, Model name = Kate Siegel
  • Fill Out: There will be five editable sections. Click any red link, start typing, and hit Save when you're done. The section will auto-populate in the rest of the page. Remember to Save each one when you are finished.
    • Introduction - a brief description and overview of your character.
    • RP Hooks - you need 3 of these.
    • Gallery - you can add more photos of your character here (or you can turn it off by adjusting gallery position from left to off.
    • Portrait - a photo of your character. Check Used Faceclaims to make sure you're not picking one someone else has already used.
    • Overview - this is your infobox. If you're not sure what to put, navigate to a PC or NPC page of your same splat-type.
    • Take a look here to see how to create your beat tracking page.
  • Track!: Keep track of your WP, Health, Conditions and other vital items with the PC Tracker template.

And you're done! If you want to add more sections, or if you need any help, ask in the #ask-for-help channel on our Discord server; someone will be happy to assist you.
