The Kingkiller Chronicle Wiki is a a wiki-based communal resource dedicated to fantasy series the Kingkiller Chronicle by American author Patrick Rothfuss.

The goals of Kingkiller Chronicle Wiki are:

  • We strive to be the premier source of information on all aspects of the world of Temerant where the events in the series take place. This includes information from the written works, as well as other information of value to fans.
  • We work toward creating an online community for members to share their views and their theories on the books and related media.

Background Edit

Foundation Edit

The Kingkiller Chronicle Wiki was created on April 12, 2009 at 9:46 pm by LunaSol. It was the 15895th wiki on Wikia. Formerly acting as a bureaucrat and an administrator in the wiki, LunaSol is no longer active on this community and is considered as having left the wiki.

Hosted by Wikia, the Kingkiller Chronicle Wiki does not, and will never have a member who has the final word in community decisions, or any semblance of formal authority. Community decisions are the responsibility of all members, made by consensus through discussion. However, for maintenance and moderation purposes, Kingkiller Chronicle Wiki has a group of administrators, who are experienced members of the site entrusted with additional tools.

After LunaSol's leaving, different users have taken on the responsibilities of administrating the wiki. Currently, Kingkiller Chronicle Wiki has two active administrators: Ivorydoom who joined the wiki on November 7, 2012 and Ohmystars on March 15, 2015.

Design Edit

As Kingkiller Chronicle Wiki is a community-driven wiki, a number of people collaborated to provide the wiki's current designs. The current theme (mainly CSS, background and logo customization) was designed by administrator Ohmystars. She is also responsible for the creation and maintenance of the most-used content templates.

Community Edit

Our resource of information on everything about the The Kingkiller Chronicle series is entirely written, maintained and updated by people like you. Kingkiller Chronicle Wiki is dependent on volunteers for its continued survival.

Many wonder how they can help Kingkiller Chronicle Wiki. Fortunately, there are a wide variety of activities and jobs that you can do.

  • Improve and/or rewrite articles: As Kingkiller Chronicle Wiki is based around an encyclopedia of everything to do with The Kingkiller Chronicle, this can be said to be the core activity of the site.

  • Create fanart for the wiki: Spice up articles by creating graphical images, like illustrations of characters.

Being a wiki-based site, which by its nature should be editable by anyone, there is a necessity of having certain policies and guidelines (or "rules") to guide use of the site. Read them here.

Important information Edit

As you traverse the wiki feel free to edit, correct, or add any information you feel is missing, try to remember a few simple rules.

  • Be nice! Everyone on this wiki loves the Kingkiller Chronicles, please try and recognize that by being kind and understanding if people make mistakes.
  • If you are a beginner to editing, a good place to start is by checking out the Community Portal!
