Title: ~ Official Armello Wiki ~
Post by: Lisy Kane on January 09, 2015, 04:23:38 PM
It's true, the Armello community is one of a kind!

Some of our forum folk have been tinkering behind the scenes to bring you, the Official Armello Wiki (http://wiki.armello.com/).

Leftcross, Alvorn and 8BitProxy have been hard at work structuring and filling this Wiki with content, but this job is bigger than the three of them! So, we thought it's time to bring it to the broader Armello community! They will continue to submit content and help curate the whole site.

The guys will be posting here jobs they need help with OR if you're keen on helping out on a particular area, put your hand up.

This Wiki is for the community, by the community - League of Geeks have just set up the domain and will be offering out assistance where we can.

Thanks Lisy !

Leftcross has been leading the charge on the Wiki and I'm sure will be along soon to say a couple of things about it.

However I just wanted to jump in first and say a huge Thankyou ! to Leftcross. He's been awesome !

And so have the LoG Crew, in particular the ever wonderful Lisy and her side kick developer (sorry we don't know who you are, but your awesome non the less). Not only have they trusted us with this, they have also pinched in and helped where possible (like hosting it and making changes at the backend as we request them).

You all deserve a gold star.

The wiki itself is shaping up to be fantastic ! Theres a bit there at the moment however we're going to need aYOUR help  getting more info into it (like information on every Card in the game). So please give us a yell if your interested in helping out.

Just a note on the Games Guide. We don't see this as a replacement for that.We actually see the two of them working along side by side. Maybe in the future we can drop the game guide, but at the moment its here to stay. And I have to say the next version is looking pretty darn sweet :)

Hey guys!

I'm Lisy's trusty developer sidekick when it comes to all this web stuff.

I'm super psyched to see how fervently you guys have attacked the wiki, and more than happy to have been able to help you guys create these amazing resources in any small way I can. I look forward to seeing how far this can go!

Thanks the kind words, Alvorn; you have been picking up the slack the last couple of days with my hectic schedule.

I would also add that members should feel free to copy information (provided it is still relevant, that is) from the old Wikia page (armello.wikia.com)--I only say this because I wrote the vast majority of it, not because I am an advocate of plagiarism!

Gratitude in advance for everyone's assistance.

Also, is there any chance of moving this out of the backer-only area in the near future? I can understand the need to keep it here for the time being, but I want to link to it from the about page so prospective editors know where the needs are.

-- Updated - Now includes a template for Followers --

Hi All,

So we hope you've had a chance to check out the Wiki and we hope you've liked what you found :) Maybe you found yourself wondering, man I wish I could help. Well never fear Armillian you can !
We have made up a couple of simple templates for each of the Card decks and now we need YOUR help applying these to all the cards.

You can check them out here:
http://wiki.armello.com/index.php?title=Regeneration
http://wiki.armello.com/index.php?title=War_Horn
http://wiki.armello.com/index.php?title=Poisoned_Gift
http://wiki.armello.com/index.php?title=Brilliant_Fool

If your interested please make yourself an account and get editing !

Whats that you've never used a Wiki before, or don't know HTML ? Well never fear its super easy, just like using a Word Processor.

Visual Editor:
For those that like WYSIWYG there is a visual editor installed.
1) Just pick a card that needs to updated
2) Jump into Armello and grab a screen shot of it. Don't forget to also record the Artist name and the "flavour text" (or alternatively run it in Window mode so you can just swap back to it when you need to).
3) Click on the "Edit" link at the top of the page
4) In a second window (or tab) of your browser Open up the Template Card of the deck that your working on belongs to i.e. Magic - Regeneration, Item - War Horn, Trickery - Poisoned Gift, Follower - Brilliant Fool
5) Click on its Edit as well.
6) You should just be able to copy and past the Template cards table across to your selected card.
7) Save your results ! And don't forget to leave a comment in regards what you have done.

HTML
For those of you who are old school and don't mind getting your hands a little dirty with some HTML (or can't get the Visual Editor to work for some reason like me). Then follow these steps:
1) Just pick a card that needs to updated
2) Jump into Armello and grab a screen shot of it. Don't forget to also record the Artist name and the "flavour text" (or alternatively run it in Window mode so you can just swap back to it when you need to).
3) Click on the "Edit Source" link at the top of the page.
4) In a second window (or tab) of your browser Open up the Template Card of the deck that your working on belongs to i.e. Magic - Regeneration, Item - War Horn, Trickery - Poisoned Gift, Follower - Brilliant Fool
5) Click on its Edit  Source as well.
6) Copy all the lines from the template card between where is says "<!-- Copy from the line below, down to where it says to stop" and "<!-- This is where you stop copying", then paste them into your selected card.
7) Work your way through what you have just copied and update the sections indicated, by a comment i.e. <!--
8) When your ready, click on "Show Preview" to check how it looks (you can do this at any time you like to see how its going).
 9) Save your results ! And don't forget to leave a comment in regards what you have done.

Don't worry if you stuff anything up, LeftCross, 8BitProxy or myself will come along and check it all out later. And we can always roll back to the old version if things have gone really pear shaped !

Now images. 8BitProxy is working on something a little bit special for these, so for the moment just leave them blank. I'll come back and update these instructions once we have the surprise sorted.

If the above isn't clear or if you have any questions what so ever, please feel free to ask. We need your help so the easier we can make it for you the better :)

Is there a problem they being around 530x270 only?

Hey Lienn,

Thanks for helping !

Don't worry about the screen shots of the cards at this stage. 8BitProxy has that covered :)

Just concentrate on the card info. We'll post here again when we have some more news on the images.

Go into your card gallery and capture them there :) I Have some more coming so upload what you can and ill fill in the blanks :)

So looks like Ty and the guys at LoG are implementing some "visual" changes to the wiki :)
Can't wait to see what it looks like when they are done.

I have added a list of cards that need to be created from scratch. Ive crated them a place holder page  but there are no details on there at all.

You can find the list on the Discussion page of the Card Category page i.e. same place as the other lists.

Whoa! Sure enough, they are! Wonder what it'll look like (or how funny this will be if it's happening by accident!)

Alright! Got plenty of time this evening, so I'll see what I can do on my end.
Title: Re: ~ Official Armello Wiki ~
Post by: TheRedRaccoon on January 28, 2015, 03:36:11 PM
I did what I could to the placeholder pages that I have, if someone could review them/fluff the strategy portions, it would be much appreciated!  ;D

I've also begun categorizing cards based on the deck from which they come for easier narrowing of search, with the categories being tied back to the main Cards category.

Post by: Alvorn on January 28, 2015, 04:22:15 PM
Hey TheRedRaccoon,

Great work. I noticed you have created a new Sub-Category for Trickery cards. Can you explain a bit further how you see that working ? Also do you see that as a replacement for the "list of Cards..." page such as this one http://wiki.armello.com/index.php?title=List_of_Trickery_Cards

Thanks

So, after I made that Sub-Category, I noticed those pages in the middle of the Cards page there for Trickery, Magic, Item, Treasure, Etc., so I was actually just about to ask you the same question.  ;D

Personally, I think it will be easier to maintain, and a lot more organized to use the Sub-Cat, but if you want to stick with those pages since they're already set up, I'd be more than willing to keep rolling with that, too. Another thing, too, and this may be some OCD talking here, but I find it odd to have those pages floating in the middle of a page full of just the individual cards, and it looks neater to have those (which are essentially Sub-Cats without using the Category function) out of the individual card pool. The only downside is having to add the [[Category: (Whatever)]] tag to all the cards.

Your call, I'm game for either.  ;)

PS - If I'm ever doing things beyond my bounds, just let me know.

Dont for a minute think that, Alvorn, Leftcross and myself are only admins because we were working on it first.  This was our baby and now it is yours. You can only overstep your bounds if your rude or stray from a plan already determined by someone else!

Thanks a bunch for your contributions!

Im thinking Sub Categories as they will be automatically "maintained" so to speak (i.e. you tag a page an it gets added auto-matically and is also in alphabetical order automatically). I reckon its a great idea. You there's a little bit of work to re-tag all the pages, but who's afraid of a little hard work :)

If your able to set up sub-categories for the other card types, I'd be happy to start going through each of the cards and updating their category tag at the bottom :)

One question I do have, is will the card still been seen at the Category level or will then only now appear on the sub-category page. Im guessing the later.

PS - If I'm ever doing things beyond my bounds, just let me know.

What 8BitProxy said :) Its a community wiki, not just 8BitProxy,Leftcrosses and mine. So if you have awesome ideas, go ahead !
Title: Re: ~ Official Armello Wiki ~

So...I've come across an interesting situation whilst editing the Wiki, and I'm not sure if there is a solution or what, but I've received this message about 3 times in the past:

(http://i.imgur.com/EmTgzQW.png)

Not entirely sure why my IP (which, this is not my IP) is being used by someone else, but just thought I'd make y'all aware.

Can't work on the Wiki tonight it would seem.  :'(

Hey RedRacoon,

I've unblocked that IP. I'd say ata guess that the IP represented a Internet Service Provider (ISP) and not nessicarily a indviduals specific IP.

Anyways please try again and let us know if it happens again.

That did it, thanks Alvorn!  ;D

Traced the IP; turns out it's a reverse proxy service in California, I must be getting my connection routed through there or something.

EDIT: All card pages are now linked to their respective sub-cats! (With the exception of the Wandering Circus placeholder, because I don't which it belongs to.) And the "List of..." pages have been cleared and unlinked so that they can be deleted.

And so I present to you the "Card Statics" page on the wiki. It breaks down the cards by type and percentage across each of the decks.

EDIT: Don't know if this is a viable option, but seeing the currently limited number of people who actually edit the Wiki, perhaps this extension (http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension%3aConfirmAccount) is a viable option?

As for new signups, I'd try and find a way to check them against their username here so that we don't have any question as to whether or not they are a bot.

So I believe I've added the ConfirmAccount extension (THANKS RED!) So people now have to Request an account for me to approve :)
Great!  ;D

Now, the mods just need to get rid of the spam bots that are currently on there.  ;)

So RedRaccon and I have added either images for the new cards that came with 0.3.1 build (THANKS RED !) or for teh 4 preview cards place holder pages that now need their details completed.
I have also created a list of cards (only 3) that need everything done for them and list of cards that need their GIF re-captured due to the changes that were made to them in this build.

As always all card "tasks" are listed on the card category Talk page : http://wiki.armello.com/index.php?title=Category_talk:Cards

Anyone shoudl feel free to jump in and help out, its a community wiki and we woudl appricate all the help we can get !

Zangoose the username. seems like it was removed since i'm gettig" invalid username/pswd" when i try to log in and that "there's no e-mail recorded for my username" when i ask to recover it, which i assume that means the username is no longer there.

No big deal tho. Was just going to use some free time i had today to template some of the new cards. No worries tho since IDK if/when i'll have another chance of giving small helps again. ^^:

So Zangoose is still there. It's not blocked, but doesn't have email address recorded with it.
Adding an email address to the account is beyond my permissions, so I'll have to leave it for Lisy to do.

Don't you need to enter an email when registering there? I confess i didn't pay much attention but i assume email is a standard info....

If you could, though, Lienn, anytime you play, try and capture some screenshots of the King's Dec's.  ;)

We're trying to catalogue all of those, so if you could also mention what tier that at.

This also goes for anyone else who's reading this and would be willing to help.  ;)

Both treasure.

I personally don't like current treasure border...it's golden border is WAY too close to items' beige border. It's like having one gray and one "silver". ^^:

I've started adding the names of tiles to the corresponding page about the tile type.
Im sure there are more to capture, so please keep an eye out and add them to the lists when you can.

Ohh and the card stats page has been updated so its accurate for Build 0.3.1 (and will now have to update these thanks to Lienn's answer above ^^).

Hey Lisy,

Have you had a chance to look at this any further ? We are being hammered by bots today. Im cleaning them up as best as I can, but would be nice if we could get something more automated in place.

In other news I have updated the Cards Stats page. I had made some errors in the last update and these have now be corrected. I have also added in a column to the su,,ary table at the top the breaks down for each deck what the split of "Resource Cost" for cards are. i.e. How many of the 22 Item cards cost gold and how many cost you Rot ?

Ive also added a summary table for card resource cost across all decks. So for example there 56% of all cards cost Gold to use, while 8% have no cost at all.

Anyways check it out :)

Our dev that can fix this has been working full-time on one of our biggest upcoming features, so we haven't been able to reinstall this yet.

I can resintall it, but it means that some users will be locked out of their accounts.
Title: Re: ~ Official Armello Wiki ~
Post by: TheRedRaccoon on March 11, 2015, 01:28:03 AM
As much as I hate to say it, I'd suggest putting it back up for now seeing such a large influx is still going on today, as well (have fun cleaning all that up, again!  :-\ They are relentless!).

If anyone wants to make changes, they can get ahold of me or Alvorn (or 8bit if they're still floating around) for now, seeing as a majority of the changes are minute for the moment being, and few others than me and Alvorn are working the Wiki anyways (not to sound cynical).
Title: Re: ~ Official Armello Wiki ~
Post by: Alvorn on March 11, 2015, 10:18:54 AM
I agree with TheRedRaccoon, please put it back in place and when your dev is free he can sort out the other stuff later. Don't know if you have looked but there is a TON of new spam accounts and pages today. I'll start to clean these up now, but putting the other back in place should help cut down on this crap dramatically.

I am curious if they are bots doing it, how it is that they get past the Catchpa ? But I guess Mr Google can help me with that :)

So I posted an update on the Steam discussion board but I'll pop it here to - I think I've fixed the Spam/Database issue. The wiki now has a new Captcha system instead of the ConfirmAccount extension (which was a bit hard to install).

So with 0.3.2 being released there is a bunch of updates that need to be made to the wiki :) Including adding the new cards and Kings Decrees.

So if you have some time on your hands, why don't you jump on over and help us fill some in or update some that have been tweaked in this build.

The list of things to do for cards can be found here (just remember to update this page after you've made the changes :) )
http://wiki.armello.com/index.php?title=Category_talk:Cards

And the list of things to do for Kings Decrees can be found here (again please update the list after you complete an item).
http://wiki.armello.com/index.php?title=Talk:King%27s_Declarations

But please don't feel you have to limit yourself to just those things ! Its a community wiki, if you see something that wrong or some area thats not covered, please go ahead and make it !

If you need any help or pointers, just ask :) Im more than happy to help.

Sorry I've been a bit quite of late. Between Easter, sore back and Pillars of Eternity I haven't had a chance to make many updates on the Wiki and things.

However tonight I knocked out a new version of the Game Guide (1.4), brining it up to date with the Engines of Fate 0.3.2 build and also updated my various Steam Guides to match the changes in this build as well.

So with them out of the way I'll try and get some updates to the wiki happening again.

Hey Guys,

I had a bit of spare time tonight so created a couple of new pages for some of the new cards and updated most of the cards that had their effect/cost changed under the 0.3.2 build. However all of these now need their GIF re-captured :( So I have moved them to this list.
Due to the current bug where Armello just shows as a Black screen when running in Windowed mode on a Mac its much harder to work on as I have to keep flipping between full screen and windowed instead of just having the windowed screen sitting next to the web-page as I edit the card.
Hopefully this will be fixed in the next build ? (Lisy ??)

Working on these right now :)

Remember the Wiki is a Community Project :) LoG just hosts the site but none of the staff actually work on it :)
So you can jump on an help update the cards yourself if you like !

There where about 4 of us when it started, but due to life and other things, I seem to be the only regular contributor at the moment.  But I can only get to it when I have some spare time (plus I also look after the Steam Guides and the Unofficial Game Guide).

So yeah feel free to assist in any way you can ! The more the merrier !!

The best place to start is:

http://wiki.armello.com/index.php?title=Category_talk:Cards

Which lists all the cards that need either need to be created, captured or info updated.

To see what has recently changed have a look at:

I've started just grabbing stills of the images. With cards getting "tweaked" each build I figure it will be quicker to just capture the still image for the moment and when full release occurs, we do a sweep back across ALL the cards and capture the final images as animated GIF's again. Otherwise we will keep re-capturing the same cards over and over as they get balanced between builds.

All any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey All,

I'd like to update the Card Statistics page on the wiki cause 0.3.3 not only added a whole lot of new cards, but changed the symbol on quite a few as well.

http://wiki.armello.com/index.php?title=Card_Statistics

But before I can do that there are two cards who's details I need (card symbol, cost type and amount e.g. 3 gold, 1 prestige, Gain 1 rot).
There are only 2 cards at the moment and they are Bribery and Mountain Moss.
If someone could post these details that would be great.

Thanks
Alvorn

Title: Re: ~ Official Armello Wiki ~
Post by: Kletian999 on April 28, 2015, 08:03:12 AM
Mountain Moss is 2 gold, Wyld symbol.   Targets Creatures Range 1. Temporarily remove 2 rot from the target until end of it's next turn. 
Bribery is 4 gold, will get symbol later.  Target Town. Steal a recruited follower.

OK folks I spent a couple of hours on this tonight and I belive (fingers crossed) that ALL cards are now in the wiki and that all cards details should (I hope) be up-todate.

There is a long list of cards who need their GIFS re-cpatured due to changes to the cards details since they were first captured, but they can wait for another night (or another person...).

Anyways full list of changes can be found here...

Well I didn't think I would be making any updates to the wiki for this Build, but found a little time on my hands this evening and thought "Ohh what the hell" and so jumped in and did some.
So...
Scout page updated to match recent changes.
Existing cards who's effects changed updated (as per list given in official build notes + Divination, which doesn't have Peril Vision listed in it anymore, well at least it shouldn't).
Hero Pages updated with changes to their Rings
Card Category Page updated with list of new cards that need to be captured and pages created for them
List of cards that need their GIF's re-captured due to changes in this build added to existing list of cards waiting to be re-captured.

As always if your looking for something to do, jump on here (http://wiki.armello.com/index.php?title=Category_talk:Cards) and help out in any way you can !

I think the Cards Stats page will have to wait however as the file I use for that is on my other computer and I can't get out of bed to use that one at the moment and we don't have Office on this one.

Thanks Gueston, there was a problem with the account creator a while back (we were getting 50+ fake accounts a day created by bots and the pluggin we put in place to help stop it didn't work). So if you do want an account (and I strongly encourage you to make one, that would be great), you had best send a PM or email to Lisy who will make you one.

Just had a look at the wiki and seems I was worried over nothing. Not only have you created your account but you have made the whole blacksmith page with animated GIF as well!!

Awesome work Gueston !!! Feel free to keep going with the cards that are listed or even make your own new pages on topics we haven't covered yet.
For example we don't have a page yet that covers hidden quests that Kletain999 so loves to find :) But don't feel you need to start there. Its up to you :)

Welcome to the team :)

Moved the Rings from the Hero's own page to the Clan Ring page in preparation for when we will have more than one member of a clan. After all Rings are per clan not per Hero.

Thanks! I'll keep going with cards that need updated/replaced .gifs for now.
As for questlines/hidden outcomes I have no idea how you'd like that to be set up. (Plus there is a ton of text and variables, which I don't know how much of that you'd want either.)

Alright I went through and captured .gifs of all of the cards on the re-capture and stills list, but after updating three images I'm noticing that some aren't animating at all on my end O.o
They are:
So I'm refraining from updating anymore images until I figure out why that's happening... (Might need to bundle up all the .gifs and send it to one of you wiki admins for uploading/updating ^^; )

And then there are these three cards that I don't know why they are on the lists, I'm probably missing something but I can't figure out what needs to be updated on them or what's different.  :-X

And that's all the further I've gotten today, once I figure out how I want to go about recording questline info I might move on to that.

Alright I went through and captured .gifs of all of the cards on the re-capture and stills list, but after updating three images I'm noticing that some aren't animating at all on my end O.o
They are:
  • Merry Thieves- seems to have worked fine
  • Dueling Pistols- Thumb is animating but full card is not
  • Trader- Doesn't appear to be animating at all
So I'm refraining from updating anymore images until I figure out why that's happening... (Might need to bundle up all the .gifs and send it to one of you wiki admins for uploading/updating ^^; )

These all work OK for me. I'd suggest it have been a caching issue in your browser. But they are working fine this morning.

And then there are these three cards that I don't know why they are on the lists, I'm probably missing something but I can't figure out what needs to be updated on them or what's different.  :-X
  • Crooks- On the info update list, can't find what's different on the card compared to the info
  • Spy Glass- On the Re-capture list, all info seems to be the same but I made a new .gif anyway
  • Raven's Beak Dagger- On the Re-capture list, all info seems to be the same but I made a new .gif anyway
Ahh thats my bad. I found that LoG had released Spy Glass and Ravens Beak as preview's before the 0.3.4 build and uploaded those. Must have forgotten to take them off the list afterwards.

Not sure about Crooks though... But you've uploaded a new copy anyways so all sorted :)

And that's all the further I've gotten today, once I figure out how I want to go about recording questline info I might move on to that.

Have a look again and try emptying your cache of your browser, but as I said they are animating for me.

Once again thanks for your hard work on this. I know how tedious it can be some times.

Ah a caching or processing issue would cause a delay wouldn't it. derp.

Here's the full list of what I've uploaded:
Spy Glass
Raven's Beak Dagger
Shimmer Shield
Marauder Gauntlets (unfortunately, due to the program I'm using this doesn't loop as nicely as I'd like it too. [Gyazo only allows for 7 second .gifs] so this one might need replacing for better quality)
Long Bow
Immolation
Aflame
Spy Network (Same problem as Marauder Gauntlets)
Wyldfyre Staff (This one is a pain to get to loop nicely, might require a recapture for quality ^^; )
Bribery
Winged Boots
Spirit Strike
Focus
Crystallise (Might require a recapture for quality/better loop)
Conjurer
Coin Master
Emissary
Merchant's Agreement
Hare's Halberd
Diviation
Strategist (It has a new effect of also giving +1 Fight as well as the AP, page has been updated to match)
Beheaded
Vile Official
Bane Blade
Saboteur

WOW ! Seriously WOW ! And I thought I was dedicated. This is amazing. Well done again !

I had planned on doing something similar with Kings Declarations, but they are a little easier in that there is only 1 part to them and that for the last couple of releases they have been listed in the Release Notes.
This is really great work Gueston  :D :D :D\

Lisy found a volunter on the Steam Forums who is interested in helping out with the wiki. His Steam ID is Gozerian_Justic. I've been in email contact with him the past couple of days and he is going to join this forum and introduce himself. I've suggested to him a good place to start may be helping you out with capturing quests. But Im sure he will be along shortly and you guys can work it out.

Im going to be offline for at least the next week (maybe longer) so best of luck and keep up the great work !!

Whoops forgot I should probably put out an update on my quest logging progress...

I've done 5 games with all characters and grabbed as many outcomes and screenshots of text as I could. I also grabbed the screenshots from Kletian999's quest feedback thread for the bits of hidden quests they have found. I haven't made any progress on retyping the text into the spreadsheet, but the google drive link I shared in my last post does have all of the screenshots I've collected in the folders so it is something that other people could do given a quest page template.

I'll keep working on getting more screencaps next time I play. :)

Hey Alvorn just a note: Right now Amber shares some quests with Rat clan, and I'm pretty sure they are supposed to be replaced at some point. (Since Rabbit clan is the one that needed more quests right?)

"A Higher Cause" is definitely a Rat clan quest based on the card dialog:
"We've received word that a small village loyal to the Rat Clan has disappeared into the forest. Find them, and save them."
"The Burial Stones" is the other one, but the text on that one is far more vague...

So I'm not sure if you want to keep them filed under both Rabbit and Rat for now or if they should be keep to their appropriate clans right from the start.  :-X

I'm starting college tomorrow, so I just want to inform you that if I seem less active. It's because I am.
BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE!
I'll try and keep doing stuffs here as best I can. Just know that due to time constraints, there are no guarantees ;)

REGARDLESS
I do hope you all are having a fantastic summer, and don't be afraid to talk to me; While I have little time to play - though, not permanently! - I still love to chat.

Here's what I found out so far in terms of cards and new king stuff from the Dev stream of the new build! (The build will come out in a few hours in which I'll dig deeper)
====================
Spy Master - Follower - Gain the Quest Vision ability
Miner - Follower - +1 Gold when entering a mountain and +1 Shield on a mountain

Black Heart - King Hero Ability - The King is always Corrupted, and gains +1 Rot every Dusk
Crown of Armello - King's Treasure - The wearer is the King of Armello and never retreats from Battle
King's Armour - King's Treasure - In Battle, all wearer's wylds count as shields
Pride's Edge - King's Treasure - In Battle, the Wielder gains their opponent's misses as extra Dice
King's Treasures have been confirmed to not be available to players
King's Fight has been reduced to 7

Dueling Pistols are now called Hand Cannons

Bonus success chance to quests during preferred time of day Actually this is incorrect... I misinterpreted something during the stream  :-X Entirely my bad.
Title: Re: ~ Official Armello Wiki ~
Post by: Kletian999 on June 27, 2015, 12:10:22 AM
Notes not see in the official patch

Wyldsap, moonjuice, wyldweed all COMMON rarity.

Teleport explicitly says it doesn't work on Palace tiles.

Moonbite's Peril rating is only 2 now instead of 4.

Strategist has lost the fight bonus it started giving last patch.  It's still a unique card which is odd compared to finding Rot Wine for almost the same effect.

Incite Revolt is now 2 gold, 1 more expensive.

Mercenaries was given COMMON rarity!

New flavor text in a bunch of cards.  Hoodwink's made me laugh.  Those lacking text have an icon that suggests the flavor text image file is missing.

Blacksmith changed to +1 sword or Shield for each Sword or Shield symboled item equipped.  (Note to self, how would this interact with weapons that have been Shimmer shielded or armor hit with Call of Worm).  Potentially stronger than ever before, but no longer free defense without wearing defense gear.  Another nail in the coffin of utility gear.

Coin Master- 2 gold per AP instead of 1.  Still beaten soundly by Trader, because Time is money.

Clicking to skip cutscenes is faster.

The palace perils symbols have changed. Before they where all one moon, sun, shield, and sword dice, now they can have rot or wyld symbols.

Post by: Gusteon on June 27, 2015, 02:26:25 PM
I've gone and captured new .gifs and updated the pages of the following cards:

Battle Axe - Effect has changed, the Strategy section will need to be updated.
Blacksmith - Effect has changed
Coin Master - Effect has updated
Crime Lord - Effect has updated
Incite Revolt - Updated with it's new cost
Moonbite - Updated Peril Rating
Raven's Beak Dagger - Effect has been changed/updated, cost has been updated
Slanderous Toads - Effect has been changed/updated
Strategist - Effect has reverted, but wording is different than before, the Strategy section may need updating
Teleport - Updated wording
Vile Official - Effect has changed
War Horn - Effect has changed, Strategy section will need to be updated

And I have created new pages for the following new cards:
Miner - Follower
Spy Master - Follower
Poppet - Treasure
Wyld Talisman - Treasure

And finally, Dueling Pistols has been renamed... and I'm not sure how to rename the page to match. And I don't think I can delete the current page and just create a new one to replace it. (I mean I can create a new page, but if I can delete the current one it's going to be a little confusing.)
Title: Re: ~ Official Armello Wiki ~
Post by: TheRedRaccoon on June 29, 2015, 03:03:31 PM
Hey, Gusteon, I've renamed (moved) the Dueling Pistols page to a Hand Cannons page.
I've also added a section to the Cards:Talk page for you guys to request any changes like that in the future (because I don't believe you guys can 'move' pages...? I don't know...)
Also, if you are ever unsure of a change, you can drop a line in that section as well.
I've freed up some time to resume work on the Wiki.
I think I'll try and overhaul some of the strategy sections.

;) Thanks for the awesome work, mate! You guys are the best!

I'm posting here today to announce that I official have joined the 21st Century in computer land, and will hopefully be back on the Armello scene soon. So, for those of you still floating around, I may be seeing you soon.

In the meantime, I have to get caught up so I can snag some of those missing Card Snapshots. ;)

Hello everyone!

I've been occasionally updating the wiki for a few months now, and would like to standardize the gallery of card GIFs, since the gameplay effects of some cards, and the text style for all cards, has changed.  I'm assuming that the current images were captured as videos then converted into .gif files.. Most of them are very smooth, but some of them that have constantly rolling animations have a "stutter" when the loop resets since the starting and ending frames don't line up perfectly, which is unavoidable.

Would any devs be allowed to share the card images in a more common format, for use on the wiki only? If not; any advice on capturing card images from those amazing players who uploaded the first round of gifs? (Utmost respect for you Alvorn, TheRedRacoon, and 8BitProxy!)

Thanks all!

Hey Firemane!

Although we appreciate your good work, we don't tend to share our in-game assets publicly. However you may find a few cards here and there pop up on our social media. They should all be pretty high quality!

Hi there!

I've done a few card updates recently, mostly cards updated stats. This is my first time editing a wiki and I think its going ok. :)
I've grabbed and uploaded a handful of gifs from the @armellogame twitter, so those are nice. (Poison Taster, Palisade Walls, Oak Spear, Saboteur, Poisoned Dagger...)
I only have the game on PS4 and I captured and made a gif of Chainmail, but its smaller than the 'official' gifs from LoG.

Can someone tell me if its worth me capturing more of these from my PS4 or just hold off for now?
Also, re: Chainmail...I didnt notice that there was another 'Chain mail' entry, so now there is two. Maybe a mod can delete one of them? sorry

However I did jump over onto the wiki and noticed Firemane.9465 has been hard at work giving the place a spring clean over the last couple of months. A big thanks to you Firemane.9465. I also notice a couple of "Admin please" requests so I cleaned those up while I was there.
I then came back today (2 days later) and WOW!! Wataniyob,l Kai LeviathanYT  and Flitz  have been super hard at work (Wataniyob ) in particular with almost EVERY card recaptured as an animated GIF and uploaded and the text on the pages cleaned up to !!! Nice work guys !!!

Im not sure if this was a co-orindated effort or if they were just sick of looking at old versions, but what ever the reason THANKS HEAPS !!

Heyo. Maybe this isn't the right place to ask, but I'm afraid to start a new thread, and it looks like an appropriate place to pose the question;

Where is all the Armello Lore coming from besides the game? I've been meaning to ask for a while now, mostly because of fanfic writing and not wanting to royally screw up the canon  of things. What sources do you guys pull from for "canon" things, such as hero character personalities and the like?

I understand that some of that detail can come from the blurbs in game, but I've encountered a few bits of info labeled as "canonical " that I've not encountered in-game.

Granted, I'm NOT saying the Wiki is unreliable! I'm just curious about the sources so I can do my homework and not write an absolutely n00bish fanfic. 'Twould be embarrassing. I suppose I could always just do my best and change things as people point them out, but Id rather avoid the trouble altogether by using these forums, the wiki, and whatever magical artifact you're using to get such knowledge.

Various places, really. Some of them come from the prototype for the audio-book that was made available during the Kickstarter. Some of it comes from all the little details in the card text, quest logs and so on. Some of it also comes from the devs themselves answering questions on Twitch.
We should put all that lore we found was canon somewhere.  ???

Yeah! Like a wiki or something! Lol
I suppose I should just be patient and wait for those things to be assembled there. Or maybe compiled into a "lore bible" of sorts (using the wiki as a source, along with ITS sources), which I think would help fanfic writers tremendously!
Title: Re: ~ Official Armello Wiki ~
Post by: TheRedRaccoon on March 20, 2017, 02:11:56 AM
There is an unfortunate lack of publicly available lore around Armello, but once upon a time we did try to assemble what knowledge we could muster, though that ultimately failed, again, due to lack of actual material.

In fact, as far as I'm aware, the most lore we have for anyone/anything is for the members of the Bandit Clan who (I believe) have their bios up on the Wiki.

I did attempt to assemble their story slightly more coherently, and that document (entitled "Armello: A Somewhat Comprehensive History") is floating around in the artist's corner somewhere...
