Every little milestone counts...

Tabula Rasa III has for years now been mostly a pile of random files -- sort of vaguely organized, but hard to make one's way around in. I've finally finished transcribing and organizing all of that into the Wiki dedicated to the game. ProWiki does seem to be paying off: the ability to build queries into pages makes it *much* easier to keep track of what's going on, and keep the whole thing reasonably consistent.
