  • Hi SMiki, I just noticed you added a note about Geralt's age and referencing an interview the author gave for it. Can you find a source for that online for us to link to for it?

  • Hey Smiki,

    I've regarded you as the expert on the geography of the witcher universe. I'm rereading the books at the moment and I came across a quote which suggested that Sodden bordered Brokilon. This confused me a little as in the current maps made it doesn't seem to do so. Then I started thinking about the overall geography of the yaruga valley and how overall it doesn't make much sense, despite it being one of the more detailed described regions (the whole of baptism of fire is basically a trip up the yaruga). What are your thoughts on the region?

    • It's stated a couple of times that dryads don't care about human borders, only for those they defined themselves. Sodden is most likely an example.

  • I see no buton to respond to your answer to my comment so since you were kind enough to reply to my previous question Im allowing myself to ask here... also on Ciri's page it is stated Calanthe ordered Mousesack to kill Geralt but the order was withdrawn -- 'the sword of destiny' is given as source of this information but... Im paging through the story and I see no mention of this -- is it also mentioned as a recollection in 'something more'? thx in advance

    • Yeah, to add onto it, there was a lot of back and forth edits on that one sentence until we realized the English translation missed that vital part (as it reads like Calanthe wanted Mousesack to kill the baby instead in English) so we had to add a note regarding the mistranslation.

    • yeah I got to this fragment in Something more myself when I started reading the story but thx again for the reply

  • Hi SMiki, I've been meaning to bring this up for awhile, but I'd like to promote you to admin position if you're up for that :) (and assuming the other admins have no objections)

  • Hey there. You removed the part about the birth of Triss and the reason you gave was that the last wolves were trained long after that.  Can you please back it up or explain? Everything in the book says that after the Pogrom, they were no longer able to produce any new witcher as they lost the mutagen formulae needed for that. Thus it makes it non-sense to say that Geralt, Eskel, Lambert and Coen were trained long after that as they are fully mutated Witchers - not to mention Geralt who is mutated even further. Can you please elaborate? Anyway, for now, have a very nice day ;)

    • well actually, I do not as I never managed to get over the prolog. TW1 simply do not agree with me :D . I am taking into account only the books and I read them twice, now in the third round.  The thing with 25 years, was it in the blood of elves?

        Loading editor
    • All the stuff is there :) 25 years, 50 years before birth, lacking mage, etc

  • So basically I think we all need to create a complete timeline of where all adaptions fit in so we can do character biographies. Since you are very in touch with book knowledge i was wondering if you could create at least a draft?

    • Can you link an accurate timeline because I can't seem to find one?

        Loading editor
    • We have Timeline article with separate tabs for games and other adaptations; there's some missing stuff though that I may finish later

  • This guy has some kind of weird hard-on for the Netflix show as he's now locked Geralt's page completely so no-one can get rid of the picture of Henry Cavill. The "Netflix Geralt" has his own page - the Geralt whose biography is detailed in the Main page is not the same as Cavill's portrayal. The picture should be of Geralt from TW3.

  • "The games are separated too given the author's stance and yet we use their pictures."

    You're absolutely correct. However, this wiki doesn't have tab for the games. Doesn't it? It only seemly seperated the main series from the Netflix series (probably because of the changes the Netflix series had done). I personally think that each media should have it own tabs (novels, games, Netflix, etc.) but I was told the admins had already decided and seemly wasn't going to be convinced otherwise. So, while I still think they are wrong. I don't care anymore.

    • The tabs for Netflix exist because Netflix wanted to have bookspoiler-free articles. Having separate tabs for each adaptation was discussed a couple of times but it was agreed too much work would have to be put in them.

    • What does Netflix have to do with this wiki? Seriously? Did Netflix reach out to the wiki and determined policy? 

      If so, then it still means it is separate. Several of the characters look nothing like the other version of themselves. Fringilla is a black woman in the Netflix series, meaning at lease for the video games they are not the same character and i highly doubt they are the same character in the novels. Also, the Dryands are shown differently in the series. 

      Next, then that decision was wrong and I wans't part of that discussed. 

      Back to Netflix for a moment, when did Netflix get to decided what is and is not the Witcher series or canon? because according to how I understand the TV series's canon isn't strictly adhering to the novels. I also understand the author's said he doesn't care what the series does as it doesn't affect his novels, which again (and after watching the episodes) mean their are seperated canon. Similar to how Star Trek novels exist.

    • Netflix is not canon, but again, neither are games and comic books. We have this little thing called "references" which is supposed to help people find out which info is from the books and which is not.

        Loading editor
    • Do you really think most peoples read the references? I don't.

      This is why the wiki is so important. It's normally the first source of information most peoples used. Hint why it is important to determine what canon vs non-canon or semi-canon. For me, Netflix is it only 'Netflix' canon.

      The best and easier way to help peoples find out which info is from the books, video games, etc. is to separate it out into different tabs i.e. articles.

  • Is there any reason this wiki doesn't have a page for fairies, especially since they are mentioned several times?

      Loading editor
    • Perhaps because we don't know what exactly they are. I'd say we can have one, but I'm not sure which mentions exactly do you have in mind; English translators used "fairy" as a translation for a couple different mentioned creatures in the original

        Loading editor
    • I've seen a couple of mentions, but especially in TLW, Velerad mentions that fairies have been snatching children from villages locally.

        Loading editor
    • Ah. So in original, Velerad mentions 2 creatures: rusalki (naiads) and płaczki (best translation would be "weepers"). If we treat "fairy" as a translation for płaczka/weeper then sure
