The CthulhuWiki is designed to be an information resource relating to H.P. Lovecraft and works inspired by his writings, including the Cthulhu Mythos, the Call of Cthulhu role-playing game by Chaosium and even the Yog-Sothoth.com.
Wikis live off user contributions. Something in the Yog-Sothoth.com forums needs preserving or writing up? Then why not preserve it here? (with permission) Always wanted to write an entry about your favourite Call of Cthulhu supplement? Now you can.
An article a day? A week? A month? Whatever your timetable, together we can build the CthulhuWiki into a resource for all Lovecraft and Call of Cthulhu fans...
In order to supply entries to the Wiki, you'll need to register. (Since it's an 'add-on' to the site.) If you'd like images associated with your entry, then simply send an email, with the image to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope over time the CthulhuWiki will grow into an indispensable reference for all things Lovecraftian.

Create a standard template for listing books.
Make it do the development for you.

I want to add a link page for individual campaign pages. Where?
I also really think that the wiki will shine as a tool for Keepers. I forsee a heavily hyperlinked session with Elder Gods, locations, historical events, monsters, wizards, etc. So if I am running a game with some Great Old One, the wiki could show me stories and scenarios that include him, associated servitors and Elder Gods, geographic attachments, historical events that might be tied to him, etc. It would greatly add verisimilitude to my games!

No page with this exact title exists, trying full text search.
Click on the link 'this exact title' to make an entry under that name.

Templates would be very beneficial.
Hope that helps!

What is the purpose of the wiki? I see two purposes. One is cataloging the authors, supplements, and other ephemera that is of interest to Call of Cthulhu players.
The other is to provide a research tool for the Keepers and players. Something like the layout of the Delta Green wiki would be good. Unfortunately the Delta Green wiki is reluctant to expand into other settings; this limit's it's use, as even straight up DG games will end up exploring where the current horror came from, what was done in the past, etc.
I suggest a page that lists books, one for dates (there is already one for the 1920's, great!), one for GOO's, one for artifacts, etc. Then on the specific page of each of these things, it links to the cults, monsters, Gods, DG ops, 20's era investigations, and everything else that is connected to it. Then if I am running a game, say, set in the Hastur cycle of Tynes and company translated to 1890, and I suddenly need an artifact for the old man to have hidden in his parlor, I can pull up either the Hastur Cycle page, or Mysterious Artifacts page, and probably find what I need. Then this could lead into the cults, monsters, etc. associated with it. I just think that such a thing would make running a game so much more ... easier, and deep.

I made a bunch of changes, but the good sample portion is the re-done Mythos Vade Mecum section. I will elaborate at a later date.
