From the Yggdra Union Wiki
Hi, welcome to Yggdra Union Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the User talk:Escutcheon page.
The Future Edit
Thank you for your kind suggestion, Revitalizer.
You're right. We have been short on editors and contributors. For the moment, I am the one with the most contributions and edits in this wikia, but even I have a limit on how much info I can share.
I have been to the other wikias that are devoted to a specific Dept. Heaven game and I am confident that this wikia is the most developed among them. In fact, I am quite saddened about the current state of the other wikias. I also wanted to develop them but unfortunately, I lack the time and resources.
As for your concern regarding the scattered set-up between the wikias of the Dept. Heaven series, I have already considered that a long time ago. My initial solution was linking and communication between the wikias. But seeing that the other wikias are currently substandard, I delayed that plan until another brave soul would come and develop the other wikias, like I did here.
As you may have known, this wikia was abandoned as well, a long time ago.....
When I first came here, this wikia was in the same state as the other Dept. Heaven wikias. It was underdeveloped, abandoned and in shambles. It was hard and for a while, I was the only one who painstakingly contributed and edited this wikia to the one you are seeing today. And eventually, I opted to adopt this wikia in order to have an active administrator here (as there were no active admins when I first came here).
Anyway, I'll post your suggestion in our community forums here. Hopefully, some of our active members will respond and share what they think of your suggestion. As for me, I am still currently unsure about the strength and integrity of the Dept. Heaven Wiki as it is still currently underdeveloped like the other Dept. Heaven Series wikias. Don't get me wrong though, I'm quite interested in your suggestion but my confidence over the said wiki is yet to be established. Perhaps we can talk more about this in the forums. Thanks again for the suggestion, Revitalizer! :) Escutcheon 16:11, April 30, 2012 (UTC)

Response to merging and administrationEdit
Hello, I would be more than happy to become the admin for the KitN section of the merged wiki. I am currently playing the game and recording as much content as possible. I am not sure what "merging" would entail, feel free to let me know. Urðarbrunnr 21:16, June 5, 2012 (UTC)
Second response to the mergingEdit
This sounds lovely, and I would be happy to work alongside other people. As long as there is no power struggle, I will continue to contribute to the wiki. I would also like to be part of deciding the overall layout, and organization of the pages, and how they are grouped. You have my consent for the merge. Let me know if you require assistance: GPRoRo@gmail.com Urðarbrunnr 23:54, June 5, 2012 (UTC)
In regards to the merging...Edit
I was just wondering when this was going to happen? Or if you have been contacted? Urðarbrunnr 18:41, June 11, 2012 (UTC)
From the Riviera Wiki
Hi, welcome to Riviera the Promised Land Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the User talk:Rugikara page.
I believe that your idea is generally a good idea, however, as the styles of the Dept. Heaven series are quite different in gameplay and have little similarities, particularly the gameplay, Riviera is in the form of a RPG, whereas Yggdra and KitN are strategy and tactical games. Therefore I believe it may be hard to relate all the games to each. (Please bear in mind that I have not played the other games in depth before!) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Rugikara (talk • contribs)
From the Dept. Heaven Wiki
Hi, welcome to Dept. Heaven Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the Yygdra Union page.
If you need help, and there are no local admins here, you may want to visit the forums on the Community Central Wiki. You can also check our Staff blog to keep up-to-date with the latest news and events around Wikia.
I should say before I say anything else , that I am a little confused regarding as to what you are saying.
What I should say is that I think what should be done is either keep the wikis separate, but provide links towards the corresponding wikis or merge it, and but create 'subwikis' within. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Rugikara (talk • contribs)
Yggdra Union Wiki Edit
It seems that the representative of Riviera, The Promised Land Wiki is already here......
All that left now is for someone to represent the Knights in the Knightmare Wiki. Escutcheon 17:33, May 2, 2012 (UTC)
- Okay then, Revitalizer. My associate from my wiki just replied.
- It seems he has no problem about the idea of merging. Yggdra Union Wiki might merge with this wiki after all. :) --Escutcheon (Talk) 14:49, May 5, 2012 (UTC)
Credit to providing character images...Edit
They all say "added by Escutcheon" or "added by Revitalizer"... when they were infact provided by me. To be fair that was a lot of work, and I feel that credit is due, where it should be. Urðarbrunnr 12:19, June 14, 2012 (UTC)
Talk Page Edit
Hahahahah, so you saw my interactions with Rugikara then. XD
Anyway, have you checked your e-mail yet? I may have left you some messages there. :)
Anyway, thanks for integrating my talk page. :D --Escutcheon 23:32, June 15, 2012 (UTC)
Yggdra Yuril Artwaltz Page Edit
Hi Rev! How's it been? :D
Nice job seeing the tab error on the Yggdra page. ;)
- I've been doing well, thanks for asking. :D
- I'm glad you are doing well too. I guess we are all preoccupied with our commitments IRL. :)
- By the way, have you got any news on Urðarbrunnr? He hasn't been on the wiki for a while, hasn't he? I hope he is doing well. --Escutcheon (talk) 04:18, January 13, 2013 (UTC)
Oh well, I'm sure Urðarbrunnr will be back again after he has dealt with his IRL stuff. Until then, "que sera sera" or so they say..... ;)
By the way, I played Knights in the Nightmare on my PSP and finished all three routes (Maria, Mellia and Yggdra) a long time ago. It's a shame I am unable to contribute to the knowledge base of the said game. My resources are rather...limited lately especially with regards to deep info about the game. And while we're at it, I still haven't played Gungnir yet. Curse my busy schedule.... (>_<)
- Hmmm, tempting...I might just add that to my to do list if ever my curiosity will get the better of me. Urðarbrunnr does seem rather busy. Oh well, we'll see...
- By the way, were you able play Yggdra Union and Riviera since the last time we spoke? It would be really nice to hear your insights regarding those games. As for me being the better Dept. Heaven Fan, well...I don't know about that. XD
Promote Feature Edit
Well, there is a pic which I think might be fit enough to represent the wiki.
The image on the right was taken from an official artwork and was edited by feral_phoenix. You can also see the original and unedited artwork on my profile page here.
My only concern about that image is that it only represents Yggdra Union and Riviera. I've been trying to find official artwork that has representatives from all Dept. Heaven games. The image above is the only thing I could find so far which can be categorized as an "official" artwork.
Another proposal I can think of is to edit the image above and add a representative from Knights in the Nightmare and Gungnir, respectively. I've also seen a few fan arts like this one made by Q-Game of deviantart:
- For the fan art, I was thinking of coordinating and asking permission from the artists that made them if we are to use their work for our wiki. The image you submitted looks good too.
- I think it would be better though, if we use an image where there is at least one representative from the Dept. Heaven games. But if we can't find or use any, I'm leaning a bit towards the pic with Yggdra and Ein (A biased decision, I know XD ) as my first choice and Pamela's image as my second choice (since she appeared in all Dept. Heaven games except Riviera).
- By the way Rev, were you able to unlock Pamela as a playable character when you played Knights in the Nightmare? --Escutcheon (talk) 16:05, January 22, 2013 (UTC)
- The pic you submitted is awesome! :D
- I like it! :D
- As for the fan artists, I think I could go about and try to contact some. It would be nice to have a good artist on our team.
- As for Pamela, you could go and try the PSP version of Knights since you only need a YU save file in order unlock her in that version, unlike the DS where you need to have a YU cartridge inserted. Plus in the PSP version, Yggdra is also a playable character there.
- It looks great, Rev. :D
- Well, all the wiki's growth and development wouldn't be possible without you, Rev. ;)
Echoes of the Past Edit
Say Rev, did you know that Gigaclon, the founder of the Knights in Nightmare Wiki, still log in and check here every now and then? I was thinking of inviting him to join us, since he never really abandoned the Knights Wiki back before the merger. --Escutcheon (talk) 16:39, January 22, 2013 (UTC)
- I see. That's impressive then. :)
- I already posted a message on his talk page. I'll see if he responds. He has been, after all, active on the other wikis he is in and the Dept. Heaven wiki is still listed in his profile page as one of his favorite wikis. --Escutcheon (talk) 09:49, January 23, 2013 (UTC)
A Contributor Edit
By the way, Rev. During my monitoring of the wiki these past few weeks, I noticed there is a wikia contributor who has been actively editing quite a noteworthy amount of pages from the KITN. I don't know if it was you not logged in or a contributor who doesn't have an account yet here in wikia... Escutcheon (talk) 21:57, February 28, 2013 (UTC)
- It's nice to see a new active editor here. :D
- Too bad that person doesn't have a wiki account yet. I would be very glad to greet that person for all his/her hard work. ;D --Escutcheon (talk) 15:55, March 1, 2013 (UTC)
- I've began importing character pages and file pages. I'll try to import all the image files from the Riviera Wiki. ;D --Escutcheon (talk) 02:31, March 24, 2013 (UTC)
- It seems things are going well with the Riviera merger, I see... :D
