Dorothy is now Judy Gale

Postby balder » Thu Nov 15, 2012 4:02 am

Dorothy was a placeholder name, but the character is more complex than just an homage to the Oz character. So I am retconjuring Dorothy's name to Judy (Gale). It's changed in the archives but not yet in the wiki. Could someone jump in there and fix that, including noting the retconjuration and a redirect from "Dorothy"?

There will likely be a number of retconjurations before taking Book 0 to print, some of them fairly significant. I did warn that this thing's a first draft when I started it. Sometimes you have to go back and change the weave a little. This change was worth doing right now.

I've changed her name on the pages for Haffaton, Ruler and a few others, I think we've got them all now.

I went to the trouble of making a wiki account a few weeks ago, and I get all excited to go make some small changes during my break, but then scroll down to everyone being all on the ball and shit. Thanks...

If the wiki search feature is up to snuff, they are all taken care of.


Off topic: Y'know... Reading the "word of the Titans" entry for this change/Rob's post led me to re-read the entry below it regarding the change from regeneration to fabrication. Made me remember that I really liked Bogroll. A simple character, but with interesting depths. He had layers, kinda like an onion.

I didn't check, but I think the texts are mirrored in the wiki. If that's so, it needs to be updated yet again, as I made changes to Judy Gale's physical appearance in episode 050 earlier today as well.

I've updated the text on the wiki and also updated the 'Judy Gale' page to account for the new desription.

Was she actually a homage in the same way as everything else in Erf, or was it the inspiration for the original Wizard of Oz?
