Portals are (to borrow a description from Wikipedia) "doorways to knowledge" — high-level pages that help readers begin exploring a particular area of the wiki. Portals do this by giving readers navigational pathways to the articles in a certain area, plus links to key articles or featured content in that area.
Eamon Wiki currently has five portals:
- The Adventures Portal lists all the adventures in Eamon and other related works, with links to every adventure article in the wiki.
- The Community Portal describes the latest events and goings-on in the Eamon community and links to other text adventure communities.
- The Documents Portal lists manuals, articles, newsletters, and other materials related to Eamon.
- The People Portal links to articles on all the notable real-world individuals who've contributed to Eamon, with links to every biographical article in the wiki.
- The Universe Portal links readers to fictional subjects throughout the Eamon fantasy universe: characters, monsters, weapons, and much more.
The timeline of Eamon history, while not technically a portal, is usually listed with the above since it serves a similar purpose.
Portals represent broad, high-level swathes of Eamon knowledge, and as such should be limited to those few broad categories. New portals should not be created without discussion and the consensus of other editors.
