The Encyclopedia

The Glitch encyclopedia is very slow and painful to use, and our attempt at a wiki was quickly filled with spam.

encyclopedia

We now have our own encyclopedia, located at childrenofur.com/encyclopedia!

Right now it is tied to the game server, so all the numbers and descriptions will match. However, we plan to add wiki functionality in the future. Who knows, maybe we could even have voting to change how things are in the game?
