As of today, the Paravia Wiki is now up-to-date with all plot events, locations, facts, and trivia from the first 6 books (through Peril's Gate). It has taken me over 10 years to get this far (with many starts and stops as real life intervenes) and I plan to continue with Traitor's Knot after a well-earned break to devour Destiny's Conflict.
The Paravia Wiki has had over 1400 unique visitors since I took over hosting duties from Trystane in October 2015. It still has a loyal readership from the US, western Europe, Australia, and New Zealand (but not much traction in South America, Africa, or Asia). Most new visitors arrive from the link on the WoLaS page in Wikipedia, although a few discover it by googling the names of major characters from the books.
Quick Reference Indexes for Each Book:
I am always open to suggestions on how to improve the Wiki, and hope that you find it to be a useful resource!
Wow, Brian, you are awesome! All this, and I know how little help you've had.
People, this is an awesome resource, and any aficionado of Athera can pitch in with Brian to finish it out!

The events of Stormed Fortress have finally been added to the Paravia Wiki, only 11 years and 9 months after the Wiki was first created!
Quick Reference Index:
The Paravia Wiki has had over 3100 unique visitors since I took over hosting duties from Trystane in October 2015. It has a loyal repeat readership from the US, western Europe, and Australia. Most new visitors arrive from the link on the WoLaS page in Wikipedia, although a few discover it by googling the names of major characters from the books.
The end is in sight!
I took a few hours to upgrade the Paravia Wiki this morning. This required a delicately-choreographed leapfrog between major and minor versions of various software dependencies (MediaWiki 1.26 to 1.30 to 1.31, PHP 5.6 to 7.1 to 7.2, MySQL 5.8) to get away from obsolete versions that are no longer supported.
Everything seems to be working correctly now, but upgrades like these often have subtle issues. If you run into any problems as you use the Wiki, please let me know and I'll do my best to correct them quickly!
Brian, you are awesome! Thank you and Happy New Year!!!
The Paravia Wiki is now up-to-date with all 6 short stories! I plan to dive into Arc 4 next and hope to wrap up both books by the time Song of the Mysteries is complete.
Today, the Wiki boasts 978 articles about WoLaS characters, places, and events with over 15,000 individual edits. The most popular pages in the last few weeks have been: Song of the Mysteries, Arithon, Fellowship of Seven, and oddly, Tharrick.
I've seen a significant increase in visitors to the Wiki – we had 1400 unique visitors in 2018, and we're already at 1700 unique visitors in the first half of 2019. There seems to be a healthy number of new readers/visitors focusing on Curse of the Mistwraith pages as well as a decent number of people searching for more info about Song of the Mysteries.
