Welcome to the Althas Wiki

This is the official wiki for The Lays of Althas: Sundered Order (or LoA:SO for short), an in-development computer RPG game set in an original medieval low-fantasy setting, being developed by Epoch Games. The game is currently being developed under Epic Games's Unreal Engine 4. This wiki contains information about the game's lore, gameplay, and development. In the future, we would like to have community features.

If you have any questions, please check the FAQ before asking elsewhere (you can also send us an email). If you want to help with the content of the wiki, then please read the Help:Editing pages.

The word Althas is in regards to the name of the planned playable continent in the game.

At this time, the wiki is private only to Epoch Games team members (with few exceptions). This will eventually change in the future.

Latest News

We got Widgets

So what are Widgets, and why should you care? Well, a "Widget ... allows the creation of raw HTML pages that can be embedded (similarly to templates) in normal wiki pages." This extension means that we can embed 3rd party site tools to wiki articles, such as Google Docs), Social Media (Facebook, Twitter), Video (Youtube, Vimeo), and more!

As of this News post, we only have Google Spreadsheet right now, but I forsee us using many more.

For a full list, see the Widgets Catalog.

We've Upgraded! (finally)
26 June 2016   By: Admin
Wow its been a long time since I've updated the news. Don't fear: the wiki does get attention (Special:RecentChanges is proof of this), it just doesn't get much noteworthy news updates. This one, however, is certainly an exception.

We've finally updated the wiki! From unsupported version 1.20.2 to version 1.26.3. Its been a long time coming!

We've updated for several reasons: security purposes, updated extensions, and the addition of MediaWiki Widgets (Coming Soon to a wiki near you)!

Naturally, there are probably still a few bugs under the hood that I haven't initially noticed. Because of this: if you find any major errors, please email me or (for team members) message me (Matt N) on Slack.

EDIT: Also changing the default skin to "Vector" as opposed to "Monobook" (Monobook has had some display issues with the recent update). If you prefer Monobook, or want something different, we do have several choices under Special:Preferences to choose from. A custom skin for this wiki is a future goal still.
