Carnage Blender 2, http://www.carnageblender.com/, the update and revised version of Carnage Blender 1, (formerly located at http://cb1.carnageblender.com/) .
- Carnage Blender is a text-based game, revolving around the common 'play-per-turn' system.
- Originally founded in November 2000 by Jonathan E., Carnage Blender has undergone constant change throughout its five year history .
- Players control 'characters' of up to four minions, then train and equip them with armour, weaponry and magic. Before unleashing them upon the merciless battlefields of Carnage Blender.
- Fight is not the only aspect of Carnage Blender, players have the chance to upgrade equipment via the Forge. The roles you can take in the Carnage Blender world are endless.
Before one begins playing Carnage Blender it is often a good idea to give the help page, , the Frequently Asked Questions,  a read. The community page, , is also a good place to browse with a collection of user maintained pages and various bits of Carnage Blender information.
Every time you battle an opposing team, you either win, lose, draw (both teams die in the same round) or stalemate (no teams die after 25 rounds). You then gain money and experience from the battle, the exact amount is determined by a combination of factors. Your money can be spent buying new equipment, Battle Allocations (turns) or even new minions. Weapons and armor can be bought from the weapon and armor store, respectively. Battle Allocations can be bought via the 'Manage Characters' page. In the 'Train' page you will be able to hire a new minion, as well as train EXP on existing minions.
The best aspect of Carnage Blender is the ability to experiment with new strategy and minion layout. As absurd as some may appear, sometimes a unique build will gain surprising results. So it's always a good idea to test out all the possibilities before settling on a single strategy you enjoy playing.
Most importantly 'have fun'.
Few more thoughts
- If a page gets too long it may be wise to have the ability to 'anchor' certain points on the page. IIRC, in html, it's <a name="name"> to set the anchor and <a href="#name"> to recall it. Obviously this can be negated if multiple pages are used instead of the one central one.
- Hyperlinks atm target to the current window, for local pages on CB it isn't a problem, but for external links it might be a good idea to allow the link to open in a new window.
- Tested the reverting system, seems to work okay.
- Is the 'Reason for change' necessary? Might be good to make it optional, but then without it there would be no way of tracking changes
- Is everyone free to edit the page? I'm sure the answer is no, but what's the criteria for allowed editors?
- Maybe a good idea to limit the amount of revisions, I mean look at all the revision I've made so far :)
- What happens when two people edit a page a the same time?
- As soon as the news are made public, we should open a thread in general, so that we can discuss what to put in these pages, and where.
- I do not think we should limit the amount of revisions: if someone is willing to work a lot, I do not see why we should stop him (unless the someone is trying to wreak havoc: in that case he should not be allowed to write at all).
- As a starting point, I think it would be a good idea to copy some of Shade's help pages http://www.cbstuff.nl into this wiki (with his permission, of course).
- Should the move the above intro to the first of the new pages?
- There is some problem with the spell check: it keeps saying that the word "m-p-o-g-d" is misspelled, but I cannot find such word in the page. Moreover, it spellchecks also the http addresses.
I just created a new Introduction page, with the above text in it. I hope I did the right thing.-- Manta
mpogd is in the link from the CB picture, when editing you can see it, the spell checker responds to it. --Shade
And about the copying things from my website, I don't think I can refuse when being given some credit now can I? ;) --Shade
Cool! Just came on this and have a few thoughts of my own :)
- Needs more pages (but thats a duh)
[ they are auto created when linked to, read up the way wikis work] -mrwuss
- "Reason for Change" definitely is good, especially when/if everyone on cb is allowed to post in here...
- perhaps a way to change specific paragraphs instead of having to edit inside the entire page?
[again not the way wikis work, which is why backups are made of each page prior to the changes going live] -mrwuss
- Any possibility in seeing a link name, or list them on the bottom of the page with a system like: 1: link, 2: link, and so on ?
- Nice to also have an addition to be able to "backspace" to the previous page instead of using the re edit link, atm it removes anything you have added to the document...
- If you need to display special characters, simply go here: http://webdesign.about.com/od/charactersets/l/bl_htmlcodes.htm and use the numerical syntax method of display.
From: http://www.carnageblender.com/wiki/help.tcl Using brackets in your text can be done by doubling them, so [[ shows as [. --Shade
This is quite different in comparison to MediaWiki, which is what I'm currently use to. I suppose this choice had many factors which I'm sure compatibility and effciency are two of them. Nonetheless this wiki might be a lot harder for some people to operate then some of the others. But no complaining here, thanks Jon.

Correct, but we do not need a full out wiki. Mediawiki is so overly bloated from what we need, it would end up being a waste of space and too many style/layout commands to keep a solid base going. Plus this one was adapted to run on the current server.
