For those of you who wanted to follow my lore-mining of the manwha, RO, and RO2, you can check out this site to see what I've learned from both games.

http://ragnarok.wiki.../wiki/Main_Page

Apparently, I'm the only one who's interested in working on this so it's a VERY SLOW work in progress. About 95% of the articles on there were writen by me. All manwha information I can pull from the books is there. For the games, I want those articles to be based off of kRO and kRO2 information since non-Korean servers like to localize stuff and you lose a great deal of lore consistency because of that. I would greatly appreciate it if anyone who knows Korean can help me make sure I've got the names and stuff right.

Almost all the screenshots you see on the wiki were done by me. There's a good handful of screenshots that were done by the developers themselves so don't assume I hacked the game to get those. RO's world is actually pretty nice-looking if you look at it from a different direction. RO2, I know some of the screenshots for that game isn't awesome since I'm trying to balance between not getting killed from lag and making the game look as good as I can. If anyone has better quality screenshots for some of mine, I'll be more than happy to replace mine.

The most complete page in the entire wiki is the Elemento Academy page. (SO MANY QUESTS!!) If anyone wants to help out with some of the pages, you can either make suggestions here or create a Wikia acount. Almost all the wiki pages are protected so you shouldn't see any troll edits at all.

Happy reading!

I help sometimes! :U (I'm still not done looking through all the skill pages though. I forgot which class page I was on the last time I logged in when you were still adding all the skills >.<;;)

More like occassionally. <<

Well, since RO2's in maintenance and I'm stuck in RO1, I guess I'll add some new pages to the wiki.

I don't have time to help out, but I honestly appreciate the effort a lot. I like reading about this sort of thing once in a while.

Soon, I'll get to read about poor Mildwin's journey in one place now!

Oh my, I didn't think there were anyone else interested in Ragnarok lore. :p_swt: Thank you, nonetheless.
I'm having a lot of trouble getting RO1 stories since my characters are WAY behind level-wise and the more interesting quests are too far out of my reach. So that's why there's a bit more focus on RO2 stories for the time being. Guess I'll wait for some EXP events in RO1 before I continue those pages.

Already added:

http://ragnarok.wiki..._Academy_Quests

Quests take me a long time to add due to the fact I'm typing out each individual quest text by hand. All of those quests took me a whole day to add (and that's with double-checking to make sure I didn't misspell anything and/or fix grammar problems), plus I add notes to the quests that have problems.

This is why I take my time doing each quest one by one. I don't want to get spoiled either. :p_smile:

By the way, have a go at these Hel Verdandi. ;)

I was kind of expecting it to be stickied there instead of Community Chat. But it IS more conversation fodder than art. :hmm: Plus, I do need help with information and I'm not going to get that in Creative Contraptions.

It's possible that we could move this there but we also need to clean up pins. The thing is a lot of the users immediately come here for information regarding RO2. This is a good way to get them to (hopefully) not fill up the boards asking the same questions. We will redirect traffic as we go. This is a good starting point, if not a very clear starting point, for now. ;)

D'awww, you found me out!!!

I hope no one starts calling me Lady of Present Hell or is that too obvious on my wordplay? ;)

You're welcome. The utter lack of a Ragnarok manwha wiki was what prompted me to start this project in the first place. From there it just trickled to the online games since they're supposed to be connected to the manwha.

For those who noticed, I pretty much based the Ragnarok Wiki's layouts off of WoWWiki's since the Warcraft story also spans over many books and games.

In actuality, I wasn't the one who created the Ragnarok Wiki in the first place. Someone else started it in 2009 as a RO database and abandoned after about 25 pages. I took it over around January of this year and now it's up to 1,400 pages. I have no problems getting the RO2 lore all caught up on the Wiki; it's the RO1 lore that I need dire help with since Renewal messed up a lot of the now mid-level quests there.

Oh god this. Man, I absolutely love the manwha. It sort of blew my mind at first with how different some things were (though as RO1 evolved they fit in more), but it was amazing even though the translation was sketchy at times (looking at you Fayon and Frontera). I hear that things in RO2 reflect the manwha lore more? (Only gotten to level 26 in beta so no spoilers!!). It always got me giddy when stuff that was in RO1 showed up in the manwha, like Thanatos and Geffenia.

It's a damned shame the series ended at volume 10, especially when you consider the creator said in an interview once ge had enough plot/ideas planned out for 200+ volumes of story, spread outover 6 parts.

I don't think Lee Myung-Jin will ever finish the manwha, to be honest. He's most likely going to continue his story through RO and RO2. I mean, Chaos, Loki, and the others have already made appearances in Episode 14 of RO.

Since both RO and RO2 were down for maintenance yesterday, I took the time to work on the Wiki a bit more.

Wiki Update
  • Updated Timeline to be a bit more accurate (still a work in progress since there's not a lot of in-game information).
  • Added more characters to the Rune-Midgarts Royal Family page. RO seems to center around the Gaebolgs and the Walters since their family trees are more fleshed out than the other royal families.
  • Green Zeppelin now has its own page.
