06.25.2016: Exactly a month since my last update (somehow), I'm once again bringing in some big changes. The forum structure has been revamped AGAIN, essentially reversing the changes made back in November. The 'Old IGNO' style of posting is officially back, by popular demand!! We will henceforth be emphasizing our signature style of spontaneous in-character discussions instead of the ill-attempted shift towards traditional roleplaying. Head over to the Casual RP forum and jump into the action!! And fear not - the traditional topics are still here, they just got a new home, too!! --SG2
05.25.2016: Am I alive again? Who knows. Regardless of my state of existence, I'm doing some much-needed cleanup over at IGNOpedia. I'd like to regain my IGNO mojo and start attracting newbies now that summer break has begun, for the bored folks out there looking for a new RP hangout... --SG2
12.1.2015: Completely rewrote the Element Guide from scratch. Now much more comprehensive!! --SG2
11.24.2015: Major overhaul in-progress!! Changed the skin, revamped the forum structure, and fixed a few things under the hood. Stay tuned for more revisions to the world, the map, and completely redone backstory of IGNOLand!! --SG2
11.12.2015: I'm back from the dead. Time to take a break from playing Skyrim and make a return to IGNOLand - big things planned!! --SG2

Guess I forgot to make a formal announcement.
IGNOpedia, the new 'wiki' (except not really) for IGNOLand, is now up and running!! This will be replacing the old, disorganized Wordpress as our off-site repository for all things IGNOLand, from articles of significant characters, places and events to hosting space for the Christmas Stories and transcripts of topics from the previous forums.
The only problem is...I am only one person, and I can only do so much. And I do it quite slowly. It will take time to populate this place with the necessary information, and while much of that is a task that only I can do (general layout and organization, deciding what pages need articles, all that fun management stuff), there are things you guys can do to help!!
For starters, the character pages are all up with a basic template, and the nation pages will be soon to follow. If anyone would like to help me get this place populated, it'd be awesome if you wrote your own character and nation articles!! Just register an account (use your IGNO name so I know who you are) and I can give you the necessary permissions to edit your articles. Obviously, this is gonna rely on the honor system that you guys won't go in and vandalize other articles (as much fun as replacing the xL article with profanity and slander would be), but I trust you. Alternatively, just pop open a word processor and write the information up and then send it to me separately (bear in mind that if you use formatting I'll need a copy of the .doc or .rtf file or you'll lose it; alternatively give me HTML).
For reference on the style I'm using, take a look at the SG2 Tiger and IGNO City articles for a character and nation, respectively. It's not as formal as Wikipedia, but it does have a certain structure to it. Alternatively just pump out the information and leave the fancy wording and formatting to me, I don't really care either way. I just need information!!
Last and perhaps most important is that even if you can't/don't want to write any articles yourself, you can provide a great service to me by giving me feedback on the articles I write. Have something that you think needs a page and doesn't have one yet? Let me know!! Noticed some grammatical errors that I missed? Point them out!! Find something that contradicts something else, or feel something is vague and unclear? Give me some advice on how I can clear it up!! While most of this project is in my hands, it would definitely nice to have some community effort behind it - especially since this is all being done for the community.
So, yeah - IGNOpedia!!

I'd be happy to help. I'll try and write as some info on Faeland and PM it to you sometime.
Iris will probably take a little longer. I'll probably write some on her after I finish the oneshot, which will probably take a while.
