Heroes of Ardania Wiki

This page contains the content policies of this wiki. Under the Wiki rules, editors should adhere to these policies when editing articles.


  • All content should relate to Heroes of Ardania.
  • All content must be accurate.
  • All content must be verifiable. Other editors need to be able to check and verify it.
  • All content must be informative. Information which is only of interest to the writer or to other editors (as opposed to readers) should not be included in articles.
  • All content needs to be objective.
  • Content must be written from a neutral point of view and should adhere to the following principles:
    • Avoid stating opinions as facts.
    • Avoid stating seriously contested assertions as facts.
    • Avoid stating facts as opinions.
    • Prefer nonjudgmental language. A neutral point of view neither sympathizes with nor disparages its subject (or what reliable sources say about the subject), although this must sometimes be balanced against clarity. Present opinions and conflicting findings in a disinterested tone. Do not editorialize. When editorial bias towards one particular point of view can be detected the article needs to be fixed.
  • All content needs to abide by copyright regulations.
  • Comments that are considered spam will be deleted by the staff and are grounds for blocking.
  • Pages that do not fulfill the content criteria should be redirected or deleted.

"Strategy guide"-type content[]

  • Content that informs the player on a particular strategy or course of action is permitted. However, as noted above, all content on this wiki must be objective. Therefore, opinions and "my favorite"-style passages should not be added to articles. The content of guides must be predominantly objective.
  • In articles that are predominantly gameplay reference information (such as pages for individual items, spells, or creatures), detailed guide information should be placed only in the "notes" section of the article.

User-estimated stats and game data[]

  • In general, content needs to be verifiable. However, in the interest of including useful gameplay information that is not necessarily explicitly stated in-game, this wiki does not prohibit the inclusion of estimated gameplay data, such as estimated creature stats so long as the information can be verified (e.g., verified via in-game testing).
  • Care should be taken to ensure that any estimated stats included in articles are as accurate as possible.
  • For information on estimating stats, please see the article on attribute estimation.

Creature articles[]

  • Estimated creature attributes (and related hero attributes such as the stats needed by a hero to become immune to a creature's attacks) may only be placed in the "notes" section, and must be accompanied by the Stat estimates notice template. Estimated attributes must not be placed in parts of the article that are ordinarily used to present attributes that are explicitly listed in-game.
  • The actual damage range of non-follower creatures cannot be fully estimated because the observed damage is also dependent on the creature's strength, which is also hidden. Therefore, any estimates on the creature's damage output should preferably clarify whether the strength bonus factor is included in the estimate.

Spell articles[]

  • Unlike creatures, whose stats are partially or fully disclosed in-game, the actual properties of spells (such as spell damage) are not directly listed in-game (note that spell descriptions are sometimes outdated and inaccurate). Therefore, articles on spells may include estimated or observed spell properties without any special notice to indicate that these properties are not listed in-game.
  • Where spell properties have been observed to be different from what is stated in the in-game description, the discrepancy should be noted in the article.

Majesty series information[]

  • This wiki covers Heroes of Ardania only, and is not a wiki on the Majesty series. However, given that Heroes of Ardania is based on Majesty, Majesty-related content may be included if relevant to Heroes of Ardania.
  • Lore content pertaining to Cyberlore-era Majesty titles (including Majesty: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim, Majesty: The Northern Expansion, and related publications) may be included in articles on this wiki if they are important to the setting of Heroes of Ardania, or are specifically referenced in Heroes of Ardania.
  • Majesty gameplay information may be included in articles on this wiki if helpful to explain the gameplay of Heroes of Ardania.
  • Heroes of Ardania predates Paradox-era Majesty series titles (including Majesty 2 and Warlock: Master of the Arcane) and is generally not based on the lore and gameplay of these titles. Therefore, content specific to Paradox-era Majesty series titles should not be included in the articles of this wiki.
