While I was working on the Inheritance Trilogy, I kept a personal wiki full of notes on characters, locations, and other details of the world of the Hundred Thousand Kingdoms. I had a vague notion of later making this wiki public so that fan-creators and others would have a ready resource to consult and continue if they wanted… but I don’t think I realized back then just how difficult it is to set up a public wiki. I could post this stuff free on an ad-supported wiki site, or for a small fee I could create a semi-private wiki with a limited number of people given creation/editing privileges, or if I weren’t already leery of large companies’ increasing encroachment on individuals’ privacy and intellectual property I could create a Google Site. Since none of those solutions really appeals to me, and because I don’t know enough about coding and don’t have my own server so as to create something myself, blah blah blah long story short… I’ve decided on a kind of compromise. I’ll post the contents of those wiki pages here, in static format sans markup (other than the links to each page and sub-page). You can read it here or post it elsewhere to wikify if you want; let’s consider these Non-Wiki pages to be Creative Commons Sharealike (also Non-Commercial, Attribution). Note the non-commercial: please don’t put it in an ad-supported wiki. I’m not interested in my work helping to sell male performance enhancement supplements or whatever.
Also, a disclaimer of sorts: some of this stuff was written before the actual books were finished, so there may be discrepancies! Also, due to deadline pressure, I stopped working on this partway through The Broken Kingdoms — that’s why there’s not much about the characters or concepts introduced in The Kingdom of Gods.
And it goes without saying, but
