Jump to navigation Jump to search


This is a guide for what sections to include on a page describing a settlement. Note that a settlement here could refer to a city, town, village, or any other long term settlement of sapient beings.

The part before the in-depth sections should be a few paragraphs long (at most) and is meant to be a general overview of where the city is located, its government, and a brief overview of its history/ethnicities/culture.


This section should cover the geographic setting, topography, climate, layout, and organization.


List notable landmarks or locations in the settlement.


This section should describe, in subsections with date ranges, the history of the city, starting from its formation and going up to the current date in the text.

=== Period (date range) ==


A description of the culture of the settlement, including nationalities, ethnicities, languages, religions, entertainment, and economics.


This section should describe the local government (and national government for capitals), politics, notable political figures, and any military role/presence.

Notable Citizens

List notable characters associated with this settlement.


Out of universe facts and info about how Brandon created it.


The notes section should first list <references /> then include the book navbox and any other extra categories (though we prefer these to be tags listed in one part of the infobox). Just prior to the navbar there should be an article status template, one of {{stub}}, {{partial}}, or {{complete}}.
