If we're going to name specific names and events in other pages, it would behoove us to include information such as collecting and transporting arms for dragon priests, which is information to which Caelumia has access, in these pages as well.

Obviously the characters directly involved would generally have the most accurate information, but I don't think something like affiliations against provincial governments would be an item to not include in this article if factual completeness and accuracy is the question.

While I wasn't that specific in the other pages in the interests of brevity, I can be if that is your desire. If you would like to add the information yourself, why don't you instead of simply talking about it? It IS a wiki. Reene 04:27, 2 December 2007 (CST)
I'd rather not add secondhand information for which I cannot personally observe the validity to the actual page. --Navak 04:30, 2 December 2007 (CST)
You've never let that sort of thing stop you before, and I'm pretty sure no one here would mind. I'd be glad to correct any errors you introduce to the article should they exist. Reene 04:33, 2 December 2007 (CST)
I think if one wants to truly be viewed as unbiased, they need to include especially the unflattering situations and events. Personally I view the character actively being involved in undermining one or more provincial governments at least deserving of a footnote from the first-hand source. --Navak 13:39, 2 December 2007 (CST)

For the sentence "Among her private retinue are her official Steward Magmus and, secretly, Caelumia.", I would like to suggest changing "secretly" to "unofficially" or "tacitly" if those fit the actual situation. Secret sounds a little odd because if the relationship is secret, how did that information get here? --Basselope 12:00, 2 December 2007 (CST)

I think secretly is fine, unless citing sources becomes a huge issue since I doubt most people want to be cited as communicating "secret" information even in a blatantly OOC forum which could lead to issues where there is a lack of certain information. The honor system on verifying and presenting accurate information would seem to be the best bet unless something untoward happens, especially in first-hand accounts like on this page. The only issue I really see with including current information is keeping it up to date. --Navak 13:42, 2 December 2007 (CST)
