Pretty much the moment Ailedhoo posted the first article, I've been trying to figure out whether Fallen Star actually qualifies for representation on this wiki. Yes, it has an official thread, and there have been crossover 'embassy' threads for other multiforum games, but in terms of its actual execution it was almost wholly a Frontier project, and the IOT thread was basically just an update index.

I know that given how sporadic activity is here from anyone other than me, I should be lucky that other people are contributing at all.

We can change background colour, link colour, button colour, heading colour, even the picture that appears along the sides of the screen. I've mucked about a bit already and come up with a CFC-style that seems fairly appealing. Perhaps I'll post it for your pleasure.Read more >
