Doofy Mon Sightings

Many people have been reporting some very fast ugly little critters running all over Britian.
After hours and hours of exhausting research, it is still unknown the origin of these slugs, but it was found they carry some magic beans. What these beans are for is also still unknown. The Doofy's move very fast and go Poof in a very short time. Seems there is no way to get the beans. Killing does not work. No time to tame and have them drop their loot.

Here we are again!

In these days I'm online for really little, that's why your contribute in PFWiki is much essential than before.

There are some new addings in the game which should be described, and with a high priority too! I'm talking about the Imbue Basket as well as the quest needed to obtain it.

--Daedalus 13:40, 4 September 2012 (EDT)

8 August 2012

I don't have many news... do you have any news? Do you know things which are not in PFWiki yet?

Don't hesitate! Start writing now!

If you don't have a PFWiki account, click on the link above and send an email address to me: I will be more than glad to create an account for you.

Today I awaken up and decided to have a look at Ilshenar again... after all, who would go for Paragon Artifacts when we have Terragon Artifacts? Ilshenar seems so useless now...

Anyway, I wanted to try to train my old yet untrained Evolution Pets on Paragon creatures, and I got an artifact.

With my surprise it wasn't one of the "classical" OSI ones, but a nice decoration item called Marie-Ange's Hearty Stew. So lovely!

We are assisting to a category of artifacts PFWiki should describe: Traditional Minor Artifacts, as we see it won't collects only the OSI-like ones, but unique items you can find only in Paradise Found.

--Daedalus 08:45, 10 June 2012 (EDT)

edit: I changed the proposed category because the new one is the official name and because usually these artifacts are found also in Treasure Chests.

Hear ye! Hear ye! Guild Leaders and everyone who is part of a guild!

PFWiki is ready to cover an important feature of Paradise Found... maybe you are going to say "Oh, that's obvious", but are you able to answer to the question "What is a Guild?" "Why are Guilds in Paradise Found?" Ask your guildleaders and guild veterans to get a PFWiki Account if they don't have one, and to publish their guild infos in PFWiki, under the new category Guilds!

PFWiki, candidating itself as a place which can collect all of infos, can give visibility to your guild informations, including history, current leader, emissaries, motto, manifest, rules and hosted events (because you are going to partecipate in organizing events, right? That's your opportunity to have people reading about your guild and helping them to join the one which suit them better.

What are you waiting for? I have already prepared a template in Sandbox: copy the sourcecode and use that as template for your wikipage!

Hello Paradise Adventurers!

In these days PFWiki is going to support your adventurer's needings with a (almost) complete description of Quests! You have no excuse to leave your lazy character banksitting at Britain Bank: run for the glory, silver and rewards, and show the rest of the community your Quest Ranking!

And if you really don't know what to do, you can go scavenge junk: you never know what you could find in the Cavern Of The Discarded...

Easter is near... happy Easter!!

I welcome those fellows which recently updated PFWiki and contributed to make this great resource better. I encourage everyone to report their knowledge here, it is fun and helpful for everyone... if everyone would be able to do 1 edit or new article every week, in few time we would end up with a completely updated wiki!

I remember you need an account to edit/add articles in PFWiki (as part of spamming countermeasures). Don't hesitate, request here an account if you don't have one!

--Daedalus 15:22, 3 April 2012 (EDT)

14 February 2012

This is an attempt to update news, but I haven't any right now. I hope you have news for me.

--Daedalus 16:28, 14 February 2012 (EST)

21 January 2012

Sorry for the delay in news updating, but either I had little to tell and I got a period of hard work and big changes. I have never forgot Paradise and PFWiki, and I won't...

What changed particularly in this period? Saying I am playing really little, I can indicate the Travel Stone is replaced by colored globes called World Of Paradise. Aren't they beautiful?

If something else changed... I don't know. That's why I like to see new entries in PFWiki, and I hope you like that too.

PFWiki is being used more and more by people, thanks to the 455 articles hosted. Still it does not cover some fundamental topics. Facets, for example: there is little about Purgatory... do you have a reason to hunting there rather Trammel? Also, Elysium!! We have a full facet with unique creatures (i.e. Buffalo, Rabbit of Caerbannog, Clay Puppet...) without a single line!


About me, I won't be at home for 1 week due to work and soon I will relocate IRL, meaning it is highly probable I won't be online for a while. Anyway, even if not in game, I will always check at forums and PFWiki.


Thank you for your continuated support to Paradise Found and PFWiki,

due to increase of account creation by spambots and to avoid the risk of major vandalism, with agreement with Haazen the PFWiki accounting and policy is changed the following way:

  • Only registered accounts may edit or create pages
  • Only sysops and above may create accounts

The second line means that, if you don't have a PFWiki account, just contact me (forum pm, in-game pm, email...) and send me an email address of yours, and I will create the account for you. Wiki has a function to email accounts by typing username and email.

You will receive an email with a random password (which is sent automatically by wiki, so I don't know it). This will surely make PFWiki a trusted source of Paradise Found news by trusted people :)


And now, back to us:

It's going really well, if we consider we have 455 articles right now! Most important, more people decided to contribute with great efforts. For example, now the Terragon list of artifacts is almost complete... and we also brought Jada here! Good job everyone!

I was thinking to launch a new Knowledge Hunt but hmm... sincerely many pages need polishment for sure. Some quests are missing (see Star Gazers)... what really PFWiki does not cover is about Ter Mur.

And that's the next Knowledge Hunt I toss: we have to discover Ter Mur: minichamps, artifacts, bosses (i.e. Medusa, Slasher of Veils, Niporailem...) Basically, all that explains why someone should go to Ter Mur instead to stay in Trammel or Purgatory. If things are OSI-like, I suggest as before to link to UOGuide pages.

Talking about bosses, I got some comments about the lack of a good section of Creatures in PFWiki. In effects, it would be good to have a good bunch of articles at least for PF only creatures (i.e. Buffalo, Rabbit of Caerbannog, Clay Puppet...). Issue is that, unlike UOGuide or Stratics, we are not able, as players, to get minimum, maximum and average skills/stats: staff should help us, or we have just to limit ourselves to a description, like in White Wyrm Patriarch. Still good than nothing!

Other things to say? Hmm... ah yes, Merry Christmas!



For the occasion, although I don't want to appear as the one discouraging people to play (sorry staff!) I want to repeat the words from a man I still despise, but they are really true:


Family and friends are more important than anything.

Life can change in a heartbeat, so be sure to cherish every moment. Take the time and spend it with your family. You don't know when things will change, so... carpe diem quam minimum credula postero.

I will not be online much, if at all tomorrow. I encourage all the staff to not log on and to spend the time with loved ones tomorrow. I encourage all of you, the players, to do the same.

This is just a game. Life is life though. There are no second chances.

And so, here we are again...

As per comments in forums and in-game, I invite again everyone not to have fear and to write: as administrator, my role would be just to prepare the background for you, to maintain order and to keep out spambots/vandals. Don't worry: there is always the Sandbox for every try you want to do. Don't fear to look at the source (by clicking "Edit" on every article page) to see how things are done.

If you do a mistake, I won't whip you, and this is valid also after Christmas time :)

Back to us: Pet Wars seems quite well set up (Thanks also for the valid informations Tiger provided). Some other events are missing or need polishment, so don't give up! Let's repeat them: Token Hunt, to polish better Champion Spawn (my thought is to move Full Champ in Champion Spawn, to integrate infos and polish the entire thing), Archery Contest and, if we are so good, something on Random Events, like "Where's Antien" and such.

Let's remember there are effectively some things missing we don't have to forget: first of all, certain quests are not described anywhere, so the Quests category list is not complete. At the moment, a missing quest which comes to my mind right now is Star Gazers (the one with star dusts): if someone knows something about, please illuminate us!

About the Item section, in this moment I am thinking to the new additions in Paradise Found: Player Nest Egg and those Ter Mur Champion Artifacts which are NOT encountered in OSI: for these ones, it's enough to link to UOGuide.

If you have a collection of Ter-Mur Minichamp goodies, PM me and let me know... I will be glad to visit you!

NOTE: about items, I just discovered how outdated we are... there are various other items and artifact lists which include OSI-like things and PF-only things. For example, I know Ronins can drop those items in OSI are known as "Treasures of Tokuno", but looks like Yamandons can drop artifacts like Pants of the Shogun, Jacket of the Shogun, etc... so if you know, please write!!

Ok, I promised you more news, and here they come.

First of all, I made some changes in main page: the Donations voice in the "Navigation" box on the left became "Support Paradise!" where you can find how you can support this fantastic shard: in knowledge, in votes and in donations (that's only a draft for now: I will look at it later).

In "Current Events", I have reported what Jada published in forums. That's for a reason: if you click there, you will see I have added some links which lead to drafts or to nothing...

That's my first Knowledge Hunt I am organizing.

In this month we will add to PFWiki a thing it always missed: EVENTS! Even yesterday you read of people saying "What is Pet Wars?" (insert_Castlevania_SOTN_quote_here) or "Which are the rules? Where do I have to go?".

That's my challenge I throw to you, and to myself too: In the end of this year, we must be able to add all of events which have a regular recurrence in Paradise in PFWiki: images, rules, descriptions, etc...

For now, it will be good at least Pet Wars and Token Hunt. Eventually we can add something on Champion Spawn (to rewrite better the actual Full Champ), Archery Contest and, if we are so good, something on Random Events, like "Where's Antien" and such.


Are you so smart to take the challenge? Of course more than me, I hardly partecipate these events!!

Thanks to the contribution of many people, and especially of the administrators Poison kitty and Decameron, PFWiki is doing its way to candidate itself as the new Paradise Compendium.

With my recent promotion as PFWiki administrator, I mean to continue this job. PFWiki covers various topics but it lacks many others: various times I got messages in game how to do a specific quest, what is that item, etc. because "there is nothing in PFWiki". This means there is interest for this resource. With your help, we can unleash the full potential of, as Decameron called it, this "forgotten resource". Let's try to delete that "forgotten", shall we? :-)

As first, I immediately announce this news box will be edited at least every 15 days. In this very first period, I will organize some "knowledge hunt" and I hope this will bring both entusiasm and fun in digging informations in game. So, stay tuned!

I invite everyone, though, not to have fear and to edit/create new pages with trust. Don't worry to make mistakes, edits can be always undone. I have also added a new link in "Help" about image formatting, which helped me a lot and I'm sure it will help you in helping other people.

And here's the "thank you" section: I would like to thank... everyone :) From Haazen, to other staff members, to everyone of you.

The new PFWiki is under new administration! I intend to breathe new life into this forgotten resource. There is amazing potential here to deposit the vast reservoir of knowledge we have among the many in paradise.I would like to thank Haazen for the opportunity to help the good people of Paradise. I would also like to thank you all in advance for your' contributions.
