Gears of War Fanon (Gears Fanon for short) is a small community of fanficcers and roleplayers that aims to have fun expanding the universe of the Gears of War series. We abide by a few simple courtesy policies and allow NCF so long as it is disclaimed. Currently, we host 576 fanon articles.
Unlike other wikis, Gears Fanon discourages editing preexisting content apart from roleplays and community projects. Instead, we ask that you contribute new content of your own. This can seem like a daunting task, but scroll down for some help and ideas!
We hope you have fun and help our community grow!
Where to Start
- If creating a full-blown fanfiction seems overwhelming...
- Check out That Other Wiki for background information and all things canonical.
- Visit the Beginner's Guides to get tips and advice.
- Create a character or two.
- Join an RP in a small role.
- Pitch an idea or ask for community feedback in the forum.
- Help out with a community project.
- Read other users' work for inspiration!
- Don't forget...
- Vote in the poll! It's easy, often silly, and helps our Administrators assess the community's size and interests.
- You can upload images for any articles you create.
- You can find a list of useful templates on Category:Templates.
- If you are new to wikis in general, you can check out the tutorial, and see Help:Contents.
