Welcome to the Cambridge Treasure Trap Wiki!
Cambridge Treasure Trap is a LARP (Live Roleplay) System based in the fantasy/medieval city of Grantabrugge, on the river Granta. The city of Grantabrugge exists in a world very loosely based on feudal England, but in a plane where magic is a tangible power in everyday life and the gods can imbue their mortal followers with Miracles. Humans are not the only sentient race, sharing that position with elves, orcs, kender and several other species, all of whom have concerns and ambitions of their own. Grantabrugge is situated in Albion approximately where Cambridge lies in England, in the lands currently controlled by the young King Samuel of Wessex. The year is 1295. The future of the city is in your hands...
This is the player-wiki for the [Cambridge Treasure Trap] LARP system. Welcome One and All!
Due to repeated spam attacks there is a password for this wiki. See here for details.
We also have an IRC channel, #larp on irc.srcf.ucam.org. A lot of social / holiday events are organised through IRC. If you have no idea what IRC is, try downloading mIRC or Trillian (googling for their names gets you the download link) - 'irc.srcf.ucam.org' is the 'server', and when you are connected to the server you can type '/join #larp' to get into the right channel. See IRCinstructions for more on this.

A cautionary note: WhenPoliceAttack
Where'd that go?
Pages appear for various purposes and then vanish. If you think there is a page about a thing, but cannot remember where it could possibly be, I'd (a) Perform a ritual asking for the servant of an elemental lord and/or god to help you, (b) Attune a divining rod to the subject you wish to find, and (c) if all this fails [check the wiki pages index].
Editing the Wiki
- Sandbox a place to play around with stuff - feel free to test things using this area
- CategoryCategory A starting point for those wishing to use categories to navigate
Feel free to make your own HomePage (and stick CategoryHomePage at the bottom so it doesn't get lost) - this should not be your character's name for reasons of avoiding confusion. To make a page for your character, link it from your HomePage using [[/CharacterName]] (no spaces), put things such as a physical description and their background - though no DeepDarkSecrets please - and stick CategoryCharacter on the bottom.
Please, please don't feel obliged to put your character sheet on the wiki
It'll take us a while to shake-down Etiquette and stuff, but for now look at [this] and remember that page names are case sensitive and shouldn't have spaces (or underscores) in them. Also, in general, if you make a new page try to link it from somewhere - otherwise it'll get lost!
Note: There are a lot of pages where discussions have taken place and it's really not sure who's written what. As a general guide, if you're writing in the first person you should sign what you've written.
Help! I don't know how to do this!
Don't panic! [[ToothyWiki]
] (of which this wiki is the grandchild) have a nice summary of how to do simple editing. If you do make a page with the wrong name, or by accident, label it with MaintainMe
and a note explaining what's wrong and a friendly Administrator
will clear it up.
You may find it useful to note that clicking on the page title at the top will give a list of all sub-pages and back-links of a page - this is how Categories work. Oh, and <br> gives a line-break, whilst putting <pre> and </pre> or <nowiki> and </nowiki> around something will make it display as-is.
If you have an RSS reader, or you want to add TTWiki to your browser's "Live Bookmarks" feature, you will want the [feed of all recent changes]. If not, you won't. If you want to know what the hell a 'feed' is for [the BBC have a pretty good guide]
