About this article[]

The Wiki is based on things that community members found out, already when Journey came out in 2012. Since the old TGC forum got deleted, there was no common meeting point for the community anymore. Now the Journey-discord is our new home.

To re-gather information, a new forum was created. Not all information from there was transported to the Wiki yet. New forum.

Aravshetikolava did share many things there and put the work into a list of common terms used by the community. Newcomers are often confronted with a flood of basic and advanced terms, as well as community names for certain NPCs.

See also: How to use Journey-Wiki.

Work in progress[]

  1. Copy paste the sorted list from the boards forum to here. i d copy past the already bit formatted stuff from Glossary dump article. though i really would check whats written there...
  2. Add links to the articles
  3. Compare explanations article<>forum, give better (but short) explanation to each term
  4. Create missing articles
  5. Decide on what should go into Category:Gameplay Basics, Category:Expert Mode Glossary, Category:Glossaries. This is already not very consise imo. Do we need an extra "basic glossary" or want to sort further via Categories?
  6. Check if Articles are added into the (right) categories. Category:Glossary.
  7. I d prefer the Wiki-Discord or Trello, if there is something to decide/discuss. Ravingmadness (talkcontribslogsblock log) Talks were moved here:

Note: Some terms from the forum might have changed or expaned. The glossary article needs to adjust to what was put on the Wiki.
