Artifacts

Hi, i’m looking at droppable artifacts for the monster, I thought about Enlightening bolt and/or Discharged lightning bolt.— Preceding unsigned comment added by He Who Drops (talkcontribs) 12:10, 31 May 2021

Hello there, not quite sure what you're talking about there. If you're mentionning this for the |artifact= parameter within the {{monster}} template, it's supposed to be an item that would be always dropped by the monster in actual gameplay (and not just for the Godwiki's lore).
But if I've misunderstood feel free to correct me and to ask for help, either here, my talk page or via the Help page you can find on the Main Page ! --WardPhoenix (talk) 21:17, 31 May 2021 (UTC)
Hey, it’s exactly what I meant, however i did not know what degree of freedom we have over this. The only way would then be to actually observe the item being dropped? Similarly, to say that the monster is or isn’t tameable is subject to the same rule ? He Who Drops (talk) 16:23, 1 June 2021 (UTC)
Basically, yes and yes. Though on some article the line can be blur I admit. Drop item and being tamable (a.k.a. being a Pet) are two gameplay feature and thus, the data regarding those two feature should be accurate in the infobox.
For example, a defeated Godville Administrator will always drop an Invite to Godville, hence why it is indicated as such in the infobox. Same goes for Pet such as Ticking crocodile per example.
On the other hand, you can totally go full creativity in the article content itself as long their is no gameplay misinfoirmation
As example, while this monster is not a pet gameplay-wise (or atleast at the moment of this talk, not known as one) you could write things like "Deities tried to tame this monster for age without success yet" or "This monster have sometimes been seen helping heroes, but not on the pet level".
But well, to be honest, even if you did write something that someone could think it's gameplay information (or something someone think should not be in the article), the worst that could happens is someone Be Bold and editing the article.
TL;DR : go full accurate for info-gameplay-wise, go full creativity lore-wise. Creativity being the most important thing, so have fun writing a nice article for Godwiki (and don't hesistate to ask for help ! damn, I wrote a light novel.) --WardPhoenix (talk) 18:43, 1 June 2021 (UTC)
