Welcome to A Wiki in the Desert, a wiki for the online game A Tale in the Desert.
If you are a new player, welcome to Egypt! See the Introduction and Rules of Conduct and for basic information about the game and its objective. You may want to review the article on citizenship and solutions in the How To article for a quick overview of how to get started in the game.
This wiki exists to document the game and to provide a community scratchpad for the players. You can find guides on things such as growing Flax, an Atlas of interesting places, and various personal pages created by the Users. If you're looking to buy and sell, try Trading.
Anyone with an ATITD account can edit any page on this site. However, please read the Style Guide and information on Formatting first. If you want to contribute but don't know where, take a look at the Spotlight page, or just browse around and look for pages where your input would be beneficial. Politics are not welcome (exception: Users pages, but no personal attacks please) -- if you want to discuss laws, please use the forums. We do have a library of passed laws.
If you have a suggestion for how to improve the wiki, please add it to the Suggestions page.

Looking for the T3 Beta wiki?
When you are preparing Tale 3 pages, please don't copy tons of may bes and what ifs. Simply include a back reference to the related Tale 2 pages.
The syntax for an interwiki reference is [[Tale2:Buildings/Compound]] for example.
