    Data Bank (Wiki Rules)

    We welcome the utilization of the Databank by all members. It is here where we will be able to annotate the ongoing lore of The Expanse RP. Our Databank is free for editing by all members but is moderated by the Admins and Databank Moderators who will review edits for accuracy.

    Static Canon Locations may be updated based on notable IC roleplay events and reviewed for accuracy. Original Creations for Space Stations will only be done with approval by staff.

    Members are free to utilize the following templates and submit entries in the Databank for the following:

    1. Character Sheet Template in the Characters Databank.

    2. Named Ship Template. ( Excluding Warships) in the Ship Databank.

    3. Location Template ( IE, City, Small Space Colony, Bar, Market, Shop) in the Locations Databank.

    As the Expanse Board grows, we will open up more templates for our members to utilize.

    Please keep the following in mind when editing wiki articles:

    1. Do not edit another writer’s Character sheet without permission or a Databank Moderator.

    2. Canon Locations may be edited with notable IC roleplayed events only with all applicable completed roleplay links attached.

    3. Ships are expensive in the Expanse Universe and more often than not, salvaged or retrofitted than bought outright. Stealth Tech is prohibited for Named Ships unless approved by the appropriate Organization Staff that maintains that technology and only in small quantities. Our ship templates have a unique PC writer requirement for larger craft. Please see below for details.
    One PC Writer
    • Racer
    • Small Freighter
    Two to Three Writers
    • Larger Freighters
    • Cargo / Transport
    Military Craft are subject to the approval of the organization they pertain to.​
