Feel like Wiki-ing?

It's not too difficult to set up an account at the Enquirer, and once you have one, you can edit, add to, vandalize or change this page and any others in any fashion you see fit. Check out this page for instructions on how to edit a page; then try your hand at editing one here. Please bear in mind that you'll have to decide for yourself how much truth any individual page contains. The Wiki of Lies18) is like that.

So! Make some pages. Soon19). Don't forget to lie.

Use the Sitemap in the bottom right corner as a reference guide when you're creating a page, so you don't go creating multiple pages that contain the same info (such as Housing vs. Dwellings, Cake vs. The Cake).20) Pages are indexed in the Sitemap automatically.

A sampling of delightful topics!

  • Roleplaying A list of large-scale plots people have, and have had going in the game.
  • This is the player-updated index of pages on the wiki. But you're probably better off using the Sitemap button in the bottom right corner of this page, or the search box in the top right.
  • Enquirer, for if you ever get curious about what it is, exactly, that you are holding. It's full of immutable facts.23)



And that's just a small slice of what we have to offer! Here's your ball of string, there's your own personal labyrinth of Crete Crates24), and there's your sanity. You can wear it like a hat as you explore. Enjoy!

1) No, you're going to learn how to play Improbable Island, not how to play Wiki, you idiot.
2) But I want to learn how to play wiki...
3) ...aren't you playing it now?
4) Lies. We mean lies. Lightly sprinkled with treason. And also lions, though those aren't outright. They're actually sneaky bastards.
5) Don't forget to flush!
6) Castor oil not included.
7) Free lies?! Hot diggity Damn! I gotta get me some of that!
8) Not to be confused with the effayque
9) Or at the very least, need it to know how the hell you play this game. And yes, the Rookie Advisory IS lie-free.
10) It's quite clean, we promise- Marly mopped it all up yesterday.
11) It's clam chowder. It's always clam chowder.
12) Some Veterans claim it was once tomato soup. They are wrong.
13) Read: ...unless you want people to have contact information. That'll cost you.
14) Read: Learn how not to drive a nail through your thumb, or your neighbours'!
15) Driving your neighbours through your thumb stings.
16) These are all player created, and quite good!
17) Free to use! But cigs are always nice :p
19) Or now, if you feel like it.
20) Then again, maybe you want to create duplicate pages. Who knows what your goals are?
21) Don't click this if you value your last shreds of sanity.
22) Like everything in your life now. Don't be a Joker.
23) Read: "a half-assed collection of lies printed to obfuscate the true whereabouts of the Enquirer's staff".
24) Complete with bloodthirsty Full Metal Lion in the center, wondering why one would need a ball of string to get out of a labyrinth.
