Little pieces of lore here and there are often mentioned off-handedly by the devs. Frequently these are hard to track and may not have much context within what we know of the world so far. This page helps to keep track of what we know and from where. Ultimately, that will allow us to include the information on pages that are appropriate. This is not a repository for every known piece of lore, but rather for lore that has nowhere else to go yet.

When you spot a new piece of information come here and double-check that it hasn't already been spotted or do a search with the wikia bar on the top of the page. Then feel free to add the lore below. Try not to speculate, but feel free to state briefly what the piece of lore is. Next, create a reference for that information. Write a short, one-line summary of where the information was found, then link the source in on the summary. (The reference list will update automatically.) Feel free to see what's already posted if you have any questions.

Lastly, feel free to link anything from your addition that probably merits its own page at some point. This will help us track what still needs to be done.
