  • If I'm not mistaken, which I might be, we are missing a Character under Allies: namely Taliesin, Chief Bard. Can you check and confirm for me one way or another? It might be that I'm blind, or that it's simply not registering on the Character page list.

    • He very well could be, and certainly of Doli, not sure how long FF live. The beginning of The Stone hints that Maibon is the guy who speaks to Dallben on the road at the end of The Foundling. It's also possible he's much, much older by the time he meets Coll, but he aged very quickly in The Foundling (or had an unnaturally long life). But either way, he's not legendary like Rhitta, or Menwy, or an ancestor like Kadwyr, or Angharad.

    • Right, I remember that now! But keep in mind that Dallben is 379 years old at the outset of BoT. He does age quickly but the text is ambiguous on what this means, exactly. Did he look like an old man for 350 years? It's kind of hard to say. Anyway, wherever you think Maibon belongs, we'll leave him there.

      Incidentally, I added the "Ancestral" bit to that category to include characters' immediate forebears, such as Godo, Collfrewr and Angharad.

  • Hello,

    I was just reading your page on The Drynwyn in hopes to find some information to use in my university project. I noticed in the comments section you left this quote - "However, according to its inscription the sword could be dangerous to those it deemed unworthy of its power or not yet ready for it, either refusing to be drawn or burning the wielder. Taran tried desperately to free the blade from its sheathe but was only partly successful and had his arm badly scorched in the bargain." 

    I wondered, is this directly from one of Alexander's books - if so, would you happen to have the publishing information that it came from? I'd love to use the quote, but cannot do so without the citation!! The year, book name and page number would be extremelly useful to me - or just the name so I can look it up as I don't want you to go to much trouble.

    Thanks!

    • Louhemming1, I must apologize for the lateness of my reply. The answer, if it remains useful to you, is The Book of Three by Lloyd Alexander.  See the inserted table for publication information. The events in question take place in Chapter XVIII, "The Flame of Dyrnwyn", p. 198. I hope this helps!

  • Hello!

    I'm Peony, one of the admins on The Green Ember Wiki. Just in case you aren't familiar with The Green Ember series, it is a series of children's adventure medieval-fantasy books featuring anthropomorphic rabbits, wolves, and birds of prey. They are authored by Christian writer S. D. Smith. In case you aren't familiar with affiliations, it basically just means that our wikis would be "allies," so to speak. Most wikis put the wordmarks of their affiliates on their main page.

    That being said, would you be interested in affiliating the Pyrdain Wiki with The Green Ember Wiki? I just thought I would ask because the two topics are similar as genre and content go. :)

    • Hi Peony! Sure, we wouldn't have a problem with that at all. We've never read The Green Ember series, but it sounds enchanting. What would the next step be in building this affiliation?

    • Wonderful! Thank you so much! :) Now, we just exchange wordmarks. Here is ours:

    • Hello again, Pinkpeony73. I see I have to apologize for the lateness of my response! Also, I have to admit I don't know how to post my own wiki's wordmark, and I'm sure I don't know what to do with yours. Please advise me as to how to proceed. Thanks and cheers.

    • No problem! I already uploaded your wordmark to our wiki. As for ours, you can do whatever you'd like with it -- you could put in on your front page, or create a page designed specifically for showcasing your affiliates, like the Disney Wiki did here: https://disney.fandom.com/wiki/Disney_Wiki:Affiliates. :)

  • So, I stumbled upon a couple of articles today...

    http://tardis.wikia.com/wiki/Tardis:Out-of-universe_perspective

    http://tardis.wikia.com/wiki/Tardis:In-universe_perspective

    and decided that even though it bugs my editor brain, I will revert the tense back to past...since these are clearly in-univere articles.

    Shouldn't take very long.

    Haen't seen you around recently. Are you on a quest?

    • Hey, Ob! Apologies for not responding earlier. Yes, I've been off a-questing... for a job! Wish me luck; it's a tough market. Anyway, I appreciate your changing the tense back to past-, I think it reads better, conveying a "days of yore" feel to the summaries. It will also be a lot less work for you! Also, I've read your series outline and am keen to know about the additional subplots. When you have a few minutes, please e-mail me with eludications. Happy Wandering!

  • Hello Sir,

    Sent you a message today so check your email for anything from Brendan Wanderer. The email address may be a different one. I attached a jpg screenshot of my vision for season 1. I need the episodes with temporary names, mostly based on chapter titles. You can see the chapters numbers listed in brackets after the main episode title. Then I've named the A,B,C and sometimes D stories for each episode on separate branches. I could go into more detail but this should give you a sense of where I intend to take this. I still need to complete the treatments, that's to follow. Let me know if you have any questions, especially re: the Coll storyline.

    Cheers, Brendan

  • Hi Noah.

    Just wanted to say thank you for always centering the route maps for me in the chapter link bar. I try do do the same, but I don't always have the option to center them, vs justified left/right. Any tips?

    Also, what are the dimensions you've settled on? I'll try to keep them consistent.

    • Of course, Brendan! Centering an image is easy in Edit mode. All ye have to do is select [ ] Source Editor -- you'll see it at the bottom of the drop-down menu directly to the left of the Cancel button. Then in the midst of all that text, find the image and, in place of the word "thumb", type "center" (with the American spelling). I found that 309 px is the optimal size for your excellent route maps -- except the one on The Gwythaints page, which I noticed needed a bit more space. You're doing a fantastic job, BTW! I am loving all your additions and adjustments. Keep it up! It's inspiring me to do little edits here and there as well.

  • Sorry about slow reply, I've been busy. I don't really have much time for this wiki any more, but I would happily pass admin rights on to you, so you can snip the loose ends as you think would be best :)

    • No worries, Toothless! Merrystar was kind enough to give me Admin powers -- an enormous privelege which I'm trying to not let go to my head. ;-) I'm very passionate about the Prydain Wiki, so if you have any ideas for improvements that you just don't have the time for, let me know and I'll see what I can do. And thanks for the reply. NoahDavidHenson (talk) 21:57, March 12, 2013 (UTC)

    • OK. Good luck with the wiki, and I'll make sure to drop in from time to time and see if I do have any ideas :)
