Toril, occasionally known in the past as Abeir-Toril is the name of the planet on which the Forgotten Realms is primarily set and of which Faerûn is a continent.
The name is archaic, meaning either “cradle” or “life” in an extinct and forgotten language. It consists of various continents and islands, including Faerûn, Kara-Tur and Zakhara in the central supercontinent and, throughout most of its history, Anchorome, Maztica and Katashaka in the western supercontinent.
Faerûn has trade links with Shou Lung in Kara-Tur, a sea route between some areas of the south and northern Zakhara, and a colony in Maztica where local resources were taken to be sent back to Amn and Waterdeep.
Toril is orbited by one moon named Selûne, and by a cluster of asteroids, known as the Tears of Selûne. I’m keeping the welcome page up for a short time it has some basic instruction on how to use this wiki
Welcome to your wiki!
This is your wiki Main Page. It serves as a starting point for your wiki. From here you can begin organizing your campaign!
To get you started, here are some examples of what you can do with the wiki. To see how these work, edit this page and take a look.
Creating a new page
To create a new page, just make a name and surround it with double square brackets like so: A New Page. When you save the page, the link will show up and you can click on it to create the new page.
Linking to existing pages
To link to existing pages, use the same double square brackets. For example, here’s a link to the this page: Main Page
Linking to a page with different text
If you don’t want to use the page’s name as the link text, you can specify your own text by placing a vertical bar | and the link text in the link like so: The Text To Display
Linking to characters and items
To link to a character or item, use the same double square brackets, but also use a colon. The text to put in the brackets is the slug for the character. Here is an example: Retread
If your character has no slug, you can use the ID number, like so: Retread.
For PCs and NPCs in your campaign, you can just use the PC/NPC Link Lookup in the sidebar to the right. It’s quite handy!
Linking to characters and items with different text
Just like wiki links, it’s possible to link to a character or item using alternate text. Here’s an example: James Rhodes
HTML and Textile
To style things how you want, you can use either HTML (with some restrictions) or a simple formatting language called Textile. It’s up to you, but Textile is pretty easy, while simultaneously allowing for lots of customization.
