Mixing Lore, fact, and History,

As the wikia grows, we need to manage and expand on everything we can, and i have been thinking of a few ways to make sure we stay as high quality as possible.

Since the show is based of historical events, im thinking we need to do what we can to add history to the articles. For example, Roman Legions should have info on who each legion was historically, since i doubt Rome called them "Glabers legion". Since most of these people where real, it shouldn't be to hard to get names.

For larger articles, i see nothing wrong with interlinking our=selfs with wikipedia for some things, like cultures and large articles that can expand on what people can get out of the show. Media has become a way to get people interested in history, and i feel we should do our part.

As for lore, We have the problems with the books, Spartacus: Morituri and Spartacus: Swords and Ashes. I have only read Morituri and found two concerns on how we would add it to main articles.:

  1. The books dont take place in their own time, but instead between episodes of the first season, so i find it hard to see a way of adding the books without splitting the first season in half.
  1. The books do the fully link with the show, a perfect example is Marcus Licinius Crassus is in Morituri and briefly encounters Spartacus, but they never talk about this in the show. this makes it challenging to add to the articles when they dont link.

Im asking for any and all feedback you have on this, i dont wont to work with consent of the other editors, and i have found you guys know what your doing.

Thanks, and happy editing,-Cheatcodechamp (talk) 16:25, June 4, 2013 (UTC)
