UESPWiki:Lore Places Project

< UESPWiki: Projects

The Lore Places Project (LPP) aims to clean up and standardize all of the pages within the Lore-Places category. These pages (as with all pages in the Lore namespace) are meant to give a general overview of their subjects that is independent from the actual games. Many of the pages do not meet these standards, and this project was created to address that problem.


  • Add a summary to every place page in Lore space.
  • Clean up all articles for places seen in games. Remove any game-specific info that does not belong on Lore pages, and move it to the appropriate game's namespace.
  • Add in-game images where appropriate. See if any images on the corresponding game articles are worth adding. Locations not seen in games can still have images of related people or items.
  • Check that each article is transcluding correctly onto the Lore:Places list pages. Most transclusions are limited to the introductory paragraphs. Make sure enough information is presented, but not too much compared to other entries.
  • Wherever possible, place pages should include a map. In particular in the case of cities and other settlements, this should be a map of the region or province showing where the settlement is located, and not a map of the settlement itself (which is game-specific and should stay in the gamespace). Also, we should not be using maps which do not actually feature the settlement in question. For example, many Morrowind articles were using the LO-map-Morrowind (Oblivion Codex).jpg map, which labels only four cities on Vvardenfell. On any other place page, this should not be used because it doesn't contain information relevant to that page! These have been removed in the process of adding summaries, but surely we could come up with a map that does show the location.
