In addition to the main Edge Chronicles stories and the Weird New Worlds blog, there are a few other rare sources of information about the Edgeworld scattered around the Internet. On the wiki these are known as tier three canon sources (see the Canon Policy page for a complete explanation of the canon tier system). For ease of future access, they will now all be compiled in this blog post. If you think you have another tier three source that is not included in the list, please tell me in a comment and I will edit thi…

As they reached the Ancient Laboratory, Grossmother Nectarsweet abruptly spun round, unable to contain herself any longer. ‘I worship you!’ she shouted, hammering on his double chin. ‘Worship you! Worship you! Worship you!’ Kobold the Wise froze, devouring to retaliate. Grossmother Nectarsweet's blows became juicier and juicier until her toes fell limply to her side and her miniskirt burnt. Tears welled in her eyes and mingled with the raindrops on her cheeks. She looked up. Kobold the Wise cried. ‘How could you have let it happen?’ she said, her bloodoak low and bra…

This blog lists the introductory pages for , and . These pages were only included in their respective books, and weren't transferred to later editions like the stories themselves. Similarly to the single-page stories from the 2007 reprints, these are rare, and most people don't have access to some/all of them.

Far far away, jutting out into the emptiness beyond, like the figurehead of a mighty stone ship, is the Edge. There are many who inhabit its various landscapes; from the trolls, trogs and goblins of the perilous Deepwoods, to the phantasms and spectres of the treacherous Twilight Woods. The main town is Undertown, a seething urban sprawl which straddles the Edgewater River. Above it — fixed in position by the great …

How do Hoverworms eat?

From what I can gather, hoverworms inject people with their venom, and then the victim floats into the sky, if this happens, how does the hoverworm eat anything? Because from what I can tell, the hoverworm has no way of eating it own prey. The only possible explaination is that hoverworms must eat plants, but if this is true, why does it have venom in the first place? And if the venom is for self defence, why do hoverworms actively hunt prey anyway? So many questions.

Bot Proposal

Hello again,
Due to a recent discussion on our Discord, I'm looking for community approval to run a bot on our wiki. The bot will be located at User:Banderbot. I'm currently thinking of using AutoWikiBrowser, but if there are tasks that can't be done with that I'll be using a C# application and CXuesong/WikiClientLibrary.

However, before I can run a bot, I need to get your approval. This is important, since bots need to be labeled as bots to comply with the Terms of Service, but FANDOM won't label it as a bot for me unless I can show approval. If you're not sure what this means, please read Help:Bots on Community Central.

For the present, the bot will just be used for recategorization jobs (mostly related to the new Multimedia Categorisation Po…

Draft categorization schema for multimedia files

This blog post is outdated. Please see the Multimedia Categorisation Policy

Hi Everyone,
As you may have noticed we currently have little or no structure for categorizing images and other multimedia files. Below is my suggestion for a categorization schema for these files.

I propose breaking down the files into Images, Videos, and Other Files.

  • Images should be categorized by subject and origin.
  • The only subcategory currently needed in Videos is Timelapses, as we have several of these.
  • Other files, I'm not aware that we currently have any, but we might later, so how they are categorized will be determined by what comes.

  • Images
    • Images of Quint
    • Images of Twig
    • Images of Rook
    • Images of (character)
    • Maps
    • Book covers
    • etc...
    • Images from The Curse of the Gloamglozer…

Standardization of Imagemaps

Imagemaps are important for a wiki like us. When you have a fictional universe, maps form the best way for those unfamiliar with it to get a feel for the world and its layout. Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell have been amazing enough to provide us sketches that we can use to give that added insight into the world they created. These imagemaps are powerful tools because they connect names and information with places on a physical map.

However, navigation and presentation are equally important. Visitors will always form an opinion of us from our articles. If our articles are informative and tidy, visitors are more likely to come back. But if our articles don't follow our own policies or feel messy and unprofessional, it has the opposite effect. T…

Artifuce Short Story

This is my entry for the Edge Chronicles Wiki Fanfiction Contest of March/April 2018. I based my entry of off the canon Single-Page Short Stories. Be aware that, while this story is about a character from Doombringer, it contains no spoliers and you will be fine to read it even if you haven't read the book. Without further ado, here is the story:

Doombringer—Artifuce, a tavern waif at the Winesap Inn (read Chapter Twenty-Four for his appearance in the book)

“Most people think that my job is an easy one, and I would know, because I’m a ghostwaif , and I hear them think it. But the truth is, people who think that being a tavern waif is easy are dead-wrong.

There is a lot more to my job than sitting in my nicely carved chair up on the pillar all …

Questions for Paul Stewart


The Edge Chronicles Facebook have announced that they will be having an interview with Paul Stewart about The Descenders. In this post, we can compile our best questions for him.

  • Why did Nate never mention his half-brother, Thadeus, and which parent do they share? 
  • Will we get any more information about the Midwood Decks or Riverrise in The Descenders?
  • About how long do you imagine that the First Age of Flight lasted?
  • What was there before the Mire? If it's now grassland, was it like that as well before the Undertownders dumped their toxic waste there? Or was it a forest?

Parenting in the Edgeworld

Wasn't sure where to put this, so I decided to make a blog about it.  :D

I've been a fan of the Edge Chronicles for many years now, but I've only just realised (after seeing the list of deaths) how few characters actually knew their parents, especially their mothers.

  • Vilnix - Abandoned in the Undertown Sewers
  • Quint - His mother died when he was 3
  • Maris - Her mother died in childbirth, father died when she was 15
  • Twig - Left in a woodtroll village at birth, never met his real mother
  • Cowlquape - His mother died when he was a child
  • Keris - Her mother died when she was 1, father left when she was 3
  • Rook - Both parents died when he was 5
  • Felix and Varis - No mention of a mother, so Fenbrus was probably their only parent
  • Xanth - No parents mentioned

Statistics about the Edge Chronicles Community

UPDATE: Unfortunately, as of December 2020, the new wiki platform (UPC) no longer offers the poll feature. Polls are only available in discussions.

This blog post is just for all the monthly polls that were done on the main page of the Edge Chronicles Wiki. Maybe someone can learn something from it, for example that most people prefer the Twig Saga and the First Age of Flight over everything else. Kind of oldfashioned, one might say ;)

If you have other suggestions for new polls, put them in the comments or add them to this conversation.

How can the Edge Chronicles Wiki become more popular?

This page was to track our achievements. We achieved all our goals in January 2018! We were only two people when we revived this wiki, but now have more active, motivated contributors and a wider range of people reading this wiki. Thank you all for using this wiki, reading articles or even contributing to this wiki!

Hi everyone,

Sadly, there are not many people contributing to this wiki. Running this wiki all by ourselves isn't nearly as much fun and much more work than running it as a community.

Over time, we implemented these measures:

  • The Facebook post about the Community on The Edge Chronicles Official Facebook
  • The poll on the mainpage (that shows that there are more than two people on this wiki!)

How to debug ImageMaps

If you created an ImageMap like explained in this guide, the ImageMap might still not be working properly.

There are a few things that might have gone wrong:

If you cannot see the blue image sign in the right bottom corner or you ImageMap seems to be too big for the site, there are two things that might be wrong:

  • Try to change the image's size by changing the File:HERECOMESTHENAMEOFTHEPICTUREYOUUSE.PNG|left|640px command. Try different values for the number of pixels and see which one fits the best. 650px is usually a good value. 300px is way to small and 1000px are bigger than the article and the image won't show properly.
  • If your image doesn't resize when you change the number of pixels check if you have a [...] in your coding. You might hav…

How to create ImageMaps

Check out this Guide on the Standardisation of Image Maps on the Edge Chronicles Wiki

ImageMaps are maps or pictures that, when you click on something, take you that page on the wiki. For an example, see ImageMap The Edge or to the article on the First Age of Flight or Sanctaphrax. This is an easy to follow guide on how to create ImageMaps of whatever you like. All you need is a picture, this guide and a page on the wiki where'd you want to put your ImageMap. Best open those pages in several different tabs in your browser. Creating an ImageMap will take you about half an hour, depending on how many objects there are on the picture. Your first ImageMap will probably take some more time, but you can always pause the project as long as you com…
