    Hello, hello! It's been a while since RPH has had any updates -- anywhere, for that matter!

    We're always looking for ways to expand RPH, and on the wiki sometimes people get lost among the confusion. Today our homepage has been updated with a basic portal which easily accesses essential information without any searching required. So far this includes links to valuable information hubs such as our forum and Wikia's own help pages, which is a standard template for most wiki homepages.

    We're also in…

  • Elandria7519

    First off, it is important to understand that Elandria appears quite tall, at most times, as she holds her head high in dignity, if not pride. Her face is structured smoothly, and it appears that nature was favorable with her, as it was with (most) elves. Some have a rounded face, a sharp, jutting one, but her visage is soft, giving her the appearance of a regal noblewoman, though such she is not. Her eyes display a canny intelligence, lunging forth from clear blue eyes. Her teeth, are pristine…

    an Alpha

    August 26, 2014 by Leora Powell
    "Tonight, a bright and glowing moon. We've been waiting for months for this night, tonight is the night of a beautiful occasion. Tonight, is the birth of our daughter. Her name was given by the Oracle in preparation to our lords son, Ginmar third heir to the pack. They will be here for her tonight, to take her away from us and raise her as their own. An Alpha." ~ Froster and Vivian Powell.

    Crickets and the sound of wildlife fill the cool night air, a soft whimper from new born puppy fills a cave…

    Translated without a dwarven dialect for ease of read:

    It was an ordinary day as any.

    We at Thelsamar enjoy a good, spicy brew chilled to the finest degree.  Our brothers and sisters at the Morogh prefer a more bitter taste than those of us that have chosen to reside in the warmer climates.  Their weather is fierce, and attacks made by trolls and wendigo are certainly nothing to laugh at.  Nonetheless, us here at the Loch have our troubles.  With the recent shortage of water supply due to the dam…

    An elderly pandaren man clad in the traditional plate uniform of the Golden Lotus, the honorable society of pandaren who protect the Vale of Eternal Blossoms, reclines in a stool that creaks against his shifting weight in protest. The pandaren man has gray, aging fur; thick, bushy eyebrows that nearly hide his eyes underneath; scruffy sideburns and a long, thick and braided beard sprouting from his chin. Over time, a grizzled arm and paw raise themselves to his beard and begin to stroke it casu…

The Roleplay Heaven wiki is a depository for character biographies, personal agendas, and all other role-play related aspects pertaining to RPH. In addition, features such as live feedback from the community strive to help role-players and their characters perform at optimal potential.

While the wiki is a great place to record your character and improve both your lore and writing skills, not all users are familiar with writing articles in Wikia. This brief guide will provide some starter tips for the structure and organization of articles and what information should be considered and included for the purposes of our wiki. Basic information such as how to create and edit pages is covered under Wikia's help pages.


Laying the Foundation
When creating a page, it is standard to dedicate the opening paragraph to summarize key points of interest that will be discussed within the page or are simply relevant to it. An example of a properly structured page with an opening paragraph can be viewed here. There can be up to several of these paragraphs, though generally one will suffice. Following Wikipedia's Manual of Style verbatim is optional, but we do encourage a basic understanding of its contents and applications for the sake of legibility. Remember that your article should be broken up into sections that discuss single, central topics (e.g., Appearance; Prepubescence; Adolescence; The Third War; etc.).

It is advisable to utilize our templates, as well. The most essential for our general purposes is the Infobox template. Most character articles will come with an Infobox on the right side of the screen with general information pertaining to that character. When creating an Infobox, include the following for conciseness:

{{Infobox
|Box title = Character Name
|image = example.jpg
|Row 1 title = <span style="color:rgb(255,255,255);">Race</span>
|Row 1 info = <span style="color:rgb(255,255,255);">Human/Orc/etc.</span>
|Row 2 title = <span style="color:rgb(255,255,255);">Gender</span>
|Row 2 info = <span style="color:rgb(255,255,255);">Male/Female</span>
|Row 3 title = <span style="color:rgb(255,255,255);">Age</span>
|Row 3 info = <span style="color:rgb(255,255,255);">10, 20, etc.</span>
|Row 4 title = <span style="color:rgb(255,255,255);">Allegiance OR Affiliation</span>
|Row 4 info = <span style="color:rgb(255,255,255);">Alliance/Cult of the Damned</span>
|Row 5 title = <span style="color:rgb(255,255,255);">Status</span>
|Row 5 info = <span style="color:rgb(255,255,255);">Alive/Dead/etc.</span>
|Row 6 title = <span style="color:rgb(255,255,255);">Relatives (optional)</span>
|Row 6 info = <span style="color:rgb(255,255,255);">Varian Wrynn (father), etc.</span>
|Row 7 title = <span style="color:rgb(255,255,255);">Alignment (optional)</span>
|Row 7 info = <span style="color:rgb(255,255,255);">Good/Evil/etc.</span>}}

Be sure to edit the appropriate areas ONLY (i.e., where text has been written to prompt your response)!


Hyperlinking
Connecting articles on a wiki page is a great way to refer readers to other sources of relevant information, especially when some topics require multiple pages to cover. Links are easy to add through Wikia's Visual editor mode and the icon for it is located beside the italics button. Typically in articles, you need only link to a source once and never again. Common sense topics (such as Stormwind City) and topics that do not directly relate to RPH or much-needed information are considered useless for our wiki purposes. Generally you will not need to refer a reader to Wowpedia's articles in your own: assume that the reader understands these subjects.


Lore Events Matter!
This is a huge part of an article on the RPH wiki: background and history, or lore. The Warcraft universe is vast and has a rich history, and the history of your target audience will likely affect your organization or character directly. For instance, a human of Stormwind descent born directly after the events of the First War would not be born in Stormwind as the kingdom was lost and abandoned. The child would be conceived either in passage to Lordaeron, or in Lordaeron itself. The child would not live to see Stormwind until years later, when it would finally be reclaimed following the Second War.

Please be sure to utilize our Question and Answers board if you have any questions regarding lore, or feel free to start a discussion on the wiki if you feel you have a headcanon and wish to share it!


Ultimately...
...how you write your article is up to you, and it should be fun to jump in and write about your character! We encourage our player base to participate in the wiki and experience what it has to offer: the rich writing experiences, the maddening critiquing, and ultimately, the community effort and improvement that comes with it all. Remember that if you ever need assistance with a character, guild, or role-play related matter, or simply wish to hone your writing skills, that the wiki's purpose is to help better the quality of role-play and flow of information within the community. Happy editing!
