Tales of life on the Frontier

Fiction from the Frontier universe, also supplied with the game. Further stories of life on the frontier and the gazeteer. Can we wikify these documents or is it under copyrights? A_H

Might be better just to link with them. In future, I'd like to see fiction posted DIRECTLY on the Wiki, similarly to the type pasted on the EBBS, but unless the copyrighholders agree (which I'd be VERY careful about), links are the best way to go for existing fiction. Feel free to wikify anything but the HPA and Nothing Like The Prodigal of mine, however... :) --RavenRed 00:38, 20 January 2006 (UTC)

"...anything but the HPA and Nothing Like The Prodigal of mine..." eh? wazzat? whynot? Arexack 2:58 20-01-06 (CET)

Simply because they're sodding huge... ;) More seriously, NLTP is a .pdf file, which I think would be a pain to reformat (italicisation is not to be ignored) and in the case of HPA, you'll need the permission of the other writers (primarily Frantic, Norman Mosser and Winston). If you can get that, and be bothered (I think Corbeau earned the Croat equivalent of a Purple Heart by gathering it all into a single file somewhere) then feel free. However, I'd give careful consideration to formatting, otherwise it could become a big, ugly wiki page. --RavenRed 02:33, 20 January 2006 (UTC)
