How to Edit
The Most important Rules
While the nature of writing about fictional works requires a certain amount of flexibility, ad hoc decision making, and some policies may be subject to change, we have two cardinal rules we observe here:
- When writing articles about the characters or events of a work, write in past-tense, and in-universe
- Stay within the parameters of what Turtledove actually put on the page! No speculating. Fan-fic should be for blogs only!
Follow these, and you should be fine.
For more information on formatting, see our Policies page.
Victor Radcliff was one of the most important figures in the history of the United States of Atlantis. He was a major in the British Atlantean colonial army during the French and Spanish War. His actions were critical to the defeat of France and the expansion of British power in Atlantis. A generation later, he led the rebelling Atlanteans to military victory during the Atlantean War of Independence. Shortly after, he became one of the first Consuls of Atlantis, serving jointly with Isaac Fenner.
