Encyclopedia Lorica

7th Edition Introduction

The Encyclopedia Lorica is meant to contain the accumulated wisdom of the various adventuring groups exploring EOW and commemorate these soldiers in the cause of knowledge and discovery.

Therefore, articles focus on practical tips for facing the dangers of exploration, information about people, places and things of importance to explorers, and information about the explorers themselves.

Entries attempt to be as concise, and as accurate as possible. However, even incomplete or speculative information can be important and is included in articles, with the appropriate caveats.

    Editor's Note: The information contained in this encyclopedia comes from adventure summaries, employment offers, and mission briefings, and therefore must be regarded with some caution, as noted earlier. I have plagiarized shamelessly from the above sources and so apologies are due to all those whose work I've borrowed.
