About this wiki and this pageEdit

This wiki is documenting all there is to know about the Malazan World created by Steven Erikson and Ian C. Esslemont.
This page is designed to help new readers find those parts of the Malazan Wiki which can be accessed safely without coming across spoilers.
As with all these things though... we are human and so cannot one hundred percent guarantee this.

GeneralEdit

All content pages are written in past tense - it does not indicate that a character is dead. A character may have a section in a book even if only mentioned by someone else so again it does not indicate whether the character is dead or alive nor if the character appears in person within that book.

Spoiler avoidance tipsEdit

  • NEVER use web search engines
  • Mobile phone? DO NOT use default view - spoiler controls won't work! Switch to 'full site view' at bottom of mobile page instead
  • Set screen to high zoom level so that it is safer to scroll
  • Do not look past headers of books you have not yet read - anywhere on this Wiki
  • Do not hover over blanked out lines

Reading OrderEdit

Check out the Suggested reading order page for different options. The lay-out of this page follows the published order, with the Malazan Book of the Fallen series by Erikson first, followed by Esslemont's Novels of the Malazan Empire. This order is also used to display information on the majority of character pages.

Chapter SummariesEdit

Work in progress but many are already available. A summary should contain no information beyond that chapter, however, clicking on a link within a summary may take you outside of the safe zone. For an overview on how far the summaries have progressed or if you would like to take on a chapter, visit the 'Adopt a chapter' page.

Spoiler iconsEdit

Eye-open = safe Eye-close = unsafe

Articles which have passed the ongoing vetting process for spoiler-friendly display will be marked with an open eye symbol at the top of the page itself as well as next to its name in the Dramatis Personae listings. Do not visit those marked with a closed eye if you have not yet read all the Malazan books and want to avoid major spoilers. The symbols do not currently show in mobile view. Articles are considered safe where spoiler content is displayed in the order in which it appears in the books under relevant headers.

What's onEdit
