Announcing the Wonderful Wiki of Eamon

Over the past year, the intrepid Huw Williams has worked tirelessly--though quietly--to lay the foundations for an extraordinarily comprehensive, online Eamon encyclopedia. Recently, this work has become open to the public.

The Wonderful Wiki of Eamon, which can be found at www.eamononline.com, is a wiki edited and curated by members of the extended Eamon community. Anyone can log in and begin lending a hand, whether it's by creating a page for an missing topic or by adding material on an existing one. Every area of the Eamon universe is touched on and what Huw has put together is nothing short of phenomenal.

As a great example of the potential of Huw's project, check out the page for The Lair of the Minotaur. Included are summaries of the plot, reviews, and a section detailing how its characters and geography relate to the larger Eamon universe. Even the original MAINPGM in BASIC has been included. While not all Eamon adventures have received this exhaustive a treatment, you're invited to pick your favorite Eamon adventure and assist in giving it the same treatment.

So head over to the Wonderful Wiki of Eamon, whether it's to check out the content or to contribute to the project.

Thank you for posting the announcement about the new Eamon Wiki, Thomas. Huw has graciously donated a lot of time and work into creating it and I strongly recommend that all Eamon fans go check it out for themselves. I had planned on announcing it myself a little while back, but unfortunately have been indisposed with all sorts of "real life" tasks that I find to be not nearly as interesting as the Wonderful World of Eamon (and Eamon Deluxe.)

Nice work. Eamon really brings back some nostalgia. I remember the Caves of Eamon Bluff and the Minotaur's Lair.
