Friday 10:00 PM on SyfyIn Season
|I'll take Morgana, Uther and Gaius updates. Maybe, as a project during the hiatus, we could assemble the entire encyclopedia for the first three seasons in an external pdf/doc file, together with flashy pictures from the show and without, references to external encyclopedias about magical creatures, and other cross-references? Like, Arthur in 'Merlin', but also Arthur in traditional legends, and so on and so forth. |
It's just an idea, and it could take long, but then again, the hiatus is really long.
About the Pedia project. I suggested in UFM thread we add possible sources for magical creatures we encounter in the show. It'd go something like this. We take Afanc, for example. Then we search it in Google, and find out there's Wikipedia entry going like this:
The Afanc (Welsh, pronounced with f as in English v, sometimes also called Addanc) is a lake monster from Welsh mythology. Its exact description varies; it is described alternately as resembling a crocodile, beaver or dwarf-like creature, and is sometimes said to be a demon. The lake in which it dwells also varies; it is variously said to live in Llyn Llion, Llyn Barfog, near Brynberian Bridge or in Llyn yr Afanc, a lake near Betws-y-Coed that was named after the creature.
Then it gets edited, proofed and sent to Eric who integrates it in the entry for the mentioned creature. So we go creature by creature, from Sidhe to Goblin, from Questing Beast to Griffin...
There's no need to hurry however, as we have nine months. I recommend that these additional entries be short, like three or four sentences maximum so as not to overcrowd already tightly packed Pedia.
And I yet have to send my updates for Morgana and co. I'll see do to that before New Year.
|First off, I need space. pcdsa and Esther, if you could delete your posts directly before and after my new **PLACEHOLDER** to free up room, that would be excellent. I already had to move entries down for today's update, they simply won't fit anymore.|
|Done with Dagr, Ebor, Sir Oswald, Sir Ethan, Mary and Cylferth and sent to pcdsa for proofing.|
