This wiki farm is largely related to the former chronicle and will be supplanted in time. Information on these wikis may refer to the old chronicle and no longer be relevant. The Reset Wiki is the temporary wiki for the new chronicle.

Due to the new website going live, the wiki login system is out-of-sync with the IoD user system. Usernames and passwords created before the 24th of May should be fine, but newer usernames are unlikely to work at present. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Fame

From Isles of Darkness
Jump to: navigation, search

The following is a list of all the PCs and NPCs in continuity who have the Fame merit and is therefore genre-unspecific. Please add your PC to the relevant section. If they have a 'stage name' they are known by for the Fame, please use that instead of the name other PCs would know them by (but put the PC name after it in brackets if you think it important).

Generic Fame is listed first, and then specific areas are listed alphabetically. If you add a new section, please put it in the right order else Vecna will eat your first born child for breakfast.

As they exist in separate continuities, Mortals and Sin-Eater have their own Fame sections. Please update where appropriate.
