    This page is up and ready to go. Tell me if you like the concept of a DM's Secrets page.

    I like the concept - but in practice won't it be open to all comers not just DM's?

    I can't see any DM saying ' whatever you find is fine - except DM secret pages' - they'd all want a degree of control anyway...

    It does act as a "spoiler alert" for those who don't want to know secrets (or don't want to confuse themselves because their DM swaps out the secrets turning this page into a wild goose chase).

    Which is good strategy on the part of a DM.

    Um, I am a player who knows more than he should. My DM (Doyle) lets me continue to contribute here because we have an understanding that
    1. Its my fault not his, so if it is stopping me having fun then I can't blame him
    2. The player knows stuff, but my PC doesn't. (The saying is "Player knowledge will get you killed!")
    3. I try not to blab anything to other players.
    4. The DM is devious and whatever I think I know probably has been changed for our campaign.


    While the wiki can do things like these DM-only pages, I must ask.... why do players need to see anything but the BRCS (or the DM's houserules)? If my PC wants to learn stuff about Aerenwe, then I would ask the DM to supply info to the PC. The DM would give me what names, places, rumours and current events that would be relevant. Looking at the wiki page for Aerenwe should be an option.

    ps. The other prime candidate for these types of pages (if you wanted to continue) is Rowena Manspear

    I dummied up the pages that refer to Rowena, but haven't actually gotten around to her. Her page will have her cover story. The final truth will be on such a page. Assuming the White Witch doesn't poison me between now and then.

    I'd hope that simply reading the stuff is pleasurable, regardless of whether it will ever feature in a game - that's certainly how I got into birthright. But possibly that makes me weird.
