I have a roleplaying game known as World Tree which uses skill advancement instead of class advancement. A character in the game is given a number of skill points at creation with no restrictions as to where they may go. I was thinking of doing a variant of this and even eliminating such things as abilities (there would instead be a lift and carry skill, for instance). I'm not sure this is the right place to discuss such a different system but I was hoping to work with others on it. Can you make any suggestions? My e-mail is brenner.mike at Thank you for your time, -Michael Brenner. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 10:23, 12 December 2009 (MST). Please sign your posts.

Well a few options exist. How different is it from D&D? One option is to make a "radical" variant rule out of it; keeping the structure on D&D Wiki in general. Another option is to make a self-contained wiki (like WikiRPS); hosting could be discussed if that is the desired option. --Green Dragon 12:01, 12 December 2009 (MST)

3.5e Class Aura Guardian

Hey Green, I was wondering if you would mind looking over the aura guardian and see if anything so far could be abused? Also let me know what direction I should focus on, defense or adding some offensive choices. I've considered a very restrictive spell list, like maybe only the healing domain up to 4 and protection up to 4. Not sure. Also I could use some help with the flavor from anyone else reading this! Thank you in advance. --Starcry 12:30, 19 December 2009 (MST)

I took a look at it. --Green Dragon 13:03, 19 December 2009 (MST)

3.5e Class Free-Runner, Variant

Can you do me a big favor when you get a chance? I read your review of the Aura Guardian (3.5e Class). It was a flawless review. I was hoping you could give the Free-Runner, Variant (3.5e Class) a similar review. Currently the class is rated 20/20 and could really benefit from your perspective in particular. Thanks a million (just if you get a free moment). --Jay Freedman 15:09, 20 December 2009 (MST)

The rating giving it a 20/20 was unfounded, so I removed that. Hope that moves the class along in the right direction. --Green Dragon 00:34, 30 December 2010 (MST)

MediaWiki Upgrade

Just noticed the new MediaWiki version! Awesome! Just having some issues, not sure if they are new or what but there is no more autoconfirmation group. So whenever I edit a page it is asking for a key code. Is this intentional? --Sleaker 06:04, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

Hi there. For some reason my username doesn't want to co-operate with me. I try putting in my password and I get a message saying that it's invalid. I tried to get a new one sent and nothing ever showed up in my inbox. I want to get on here and post some more stuff and because of this, I can't. Can you help me out? --Mythos Specialist —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 22:45, 8 January 2010 (UTC). Please sign your posts.

Actually, never mind. I didn't have anything fully finished anyway, so I made a new account. --Danzig 04:28, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
Oh don't. As long as your email is correct it is not a problem. I just have to wait a few days to do it. --Green Dragon 04:35, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
I already posted a full core class to the new profile. But, if you can get my old account running, it'd make it a lot easier to do the transfer. Besides, I like the new name... --Danzig 13:58, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
I started the process on User Management. More things are needed to be known and done, but at least it has been started. --Green Dragon 01:10, 30 December 2010 (MST)

Tavern Changes

Hi Green Dragon. Ive been gone for a while. I have come back though and was just curious what happened to the tavern. Thanks. --Sabreheim 10:21, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

You'll find that the general consensus seemed to be that the Tavern was superfluous and unproductive, although I believe cost-engineering may be playing some part in its continued absence (inferred from the section above). --Jota 12:22, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
Personally I think that the tavern was a good thing — it allowed for more person to person feedback on content. --Sabreheim 16:33, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

I commented on it a bit, and thanks thanks for letting me know about its addition. I am more then willing to take a look at things one lets me knows of. --Green Dragon 14:05, 1 January 2011 (MST)

Adding a 4e Class

Hey Green Dragon. I'm creating a new class for my D&D campaign and thought you might want to add it to your site and perhaps help me refine it as well. I call it the summoner class. Apparently, you already deleted an entry for it because it wasn't done too well. I can assure you, I put a lot of work into it so far, and will continue to do so till perfected.

Anyway, this normally wouldn't concern you except that I'm not too good at HTML code and was hoping that you could help make the page for me? I can email you the Word File that I've been working on so far. I have everything I think I need for the first page and I have all the way to level 7 powers (for now). —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 01:46, 4 February 2010 (UTC).

Email me and we can work on it. --Green Dragon 13:00, 1 January 2011 (MST)

Media Licensing

I was trying to add some content in the D&D Wiki Media and the only CC license there was the Attribution-Share Alike. The content I'm trying to add is under Attribution-NonCommercial-No Derivative license. Can that be added to the licenses? Thanks in advance. --ElfsMaster 16:05, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

Of course. In the license template just add it. For example {{license|Attribution-NonCommercial-No Derivative}}. --Green Dragon 22:19, 4 February 2010 (UTC)
Ok, did it. However, when I added the image I forgot to put some characters and the link ended kinda weird. Now, when I try to edit it, the following messenge shows up:
out of captcha images; this shouldn't happen
I guess that that shouldn't happen (great insightful conclusion, I know). --ElfsMaster 00:00, 5 February 2010 (UTC)
This is no longer a problem, and let me know if you have any more difficulties. --Green Dragon 12:01, 30 December 2010 (MST)

You seem like a very knowledgeable person. I'm currently working on designing an epic level 3.5 Campaign. I've been designing NPCs main characters and what not, and one of the main chars I've built doesn't have a name, as ironic as it is. It is a 15th Age Advanced Paragon White Great Wyrm of Legends, Leader of the Dragon council, and by far the strongest dragon among them. He is very unique and i just don't know what to call him. If you have the chance I would really appreciate it if you could shoot come good names at me, I'm drawing a blank. Thanks. --Envoyof_aGod 19:22, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

I'm drawing a blank too. DnD Links should help a bit. --Green Dragon 14:26, 1 January 2011 (MST)

When I am trying to search by keywords (for example "hawk"), sometimes the search engine is not coming back with any results. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 11:16, 21 February 2010 (UTC). Please sign your posts.

Hello all. Congrats on the great job on D&D Wiki. I was searching with keyword: Samurai and samurai and the result I got was:
Query failed: connection to localhost:3312 failed (errno=111, msg=Connection refused).
I know there were pages resulting from this same search since I have been browsing them the past week. Hope it helps. --Dervell 11:56, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
I had problems with this yesterday as well. But then it mysteriously started working again so I figured you were working on the problem while I was online. JazzMan 19:59, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
I think this was a problem for a short time period, and it works fine now. --Green Dragon 15:58, 30 December 2010 (MST)


Hey Green. It appears that since the server issue some of us are experiencing problems when we try to move pages. It doesn't happen every single time, but seems to be at least 3/4ths of the time. The page will stay in a loading status for quite some time and then it'll pop up a database error. Just FYI.

So you don't have to, this is a quote of the error I'm getting:

A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software. The last attempted database query was:

(SQL query hidden)

from within function "Title::deleteTitleProtection". MySQL returned error "2006: MySQL server has gone away ("."

I know. Blue Dragon said he has time to look at it tomorrow so that should be the case. Same with the sword, delete. Do you know of more things? --Green Dragon 01:03, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
Not so far. Jazz above mentions some search problem but I haven't been able to duplicate that.   Hooper   talk    contribs    email   03:20, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
It's hit or miss. I tried it just now and got the error again. Along with the error message, the "search in namespaces" list is misformatted. But then other times it will just work, so it seems to be an intermittent problem. The only other thing I noticed was yesterday every now and then after editing a page it would give me an error that made it look like my edit wasn't saved, but when I went back to check, it was saved. Again, it's nothing repeatable, it just happens off and on.
I seemed to have found a pattern to the searching error: If you type in an exact page name ("SRD:Fighter") into the search box then hit "go" (or hit enter), it works fine. If you type in a page name that doesn't exist ("test") you get the error. Also, if you type in a name that does exist but hit "search" instead of "go", you also get the error, so I'm guessing that something went wrong with the search function itself, and not the search box. --JazzMan 05:08, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
Hopefully this weekend all the problems should be dealt with. --Green Dragon 04:42, 2 March 2010 (UTC)
These have all been resolved. --Green Dragon 12:54, 1 January 2011 (MST)
