Welcome to A Wiki in the Desert, a wiki for the online game A Tale in the Desert.

This wiki exists to document the game and to provide a community scratchpad for the players. You can find guides on everything from growing flax to designing fireworks, an atlas of interesting places, and various personal pages created by the users. New players may want to read the section on immigration for a quick overview of how to get started in the game. A Tour Guide to Egypt also exists.

Anyone (even you) can edit any page on this site. However, you may want to look at the style guide and information on formatting first. If you want to contribute but don't know where, take a look at the "Spotlight" section below, or just browse around and look for pages where your input would be beneficial. This isn't the tech tree, however; please don't create a new topic for an item or building just because it's there.

Politics are not welcome -- if you want to discuss laws, please use the forums. (A compendium of existing laws, on the other hand, would be great to have.)

If you have a suggestion for how to improve the wiki, please add it to the suggestions page.
