Voted other,

Tend to look at lots of different bits and pieces now and again, depending on (obviously) what I'm looking for.. If the servers are down, for example I tend to try and research a little bit of the history of Avlis. Sometimes I use it for a reminder, e.g. Definition of griefing (joke) or how to write IG notes. Generally, I don't use it half as much as I should really. Perhaps my knowledge of the place would expand a hell of a lot quicker if I did!

I really like the character bios.
Alot of them are well written, and a real pleasure to read.
I encourage everyone to put one up!

The psionic pages. After all, the only way you can find out what psionic powers are currently on Avlis is in the Wiki.

Top 10 pages according to the wiki, excluding the main page:
0 Main Page (18004 views)
1 Avlisdocs:Player Guide (9541 views)
2 Magic System (5595 views)
3 Character Creation (4601 views)
4 Psionics (4375 views)
5 Needed files (4158 views)
6 Rules (4152 views)
7 Magic:Spell List (4087 views)
8 CustomPortrait (3668 views)
9 Prestige Classes (2877 views)
10 Kurathene (2637 views)

I think many of the views are from people who look but don't play Avlis, so I'm interested what this poll will turn out to say.

Nation info for me.

Edited for accuracy.. at least according to the wiki statistics.

Oddly enough, "Blank Page" is #12.

My most used set these days is the Special: range, but that's just due to tracking down orphans, wanted pages and non-categories.

Mostly I read the nations and deities info, and refer to it while playing for spelling and such.

Have to agree here, this to me is what adds the flavour to the world. This is especially good for reading about those characters you hear of, but never see for whatever reason :)

Interestingly enough, the wiki got more hits today than the front page of Avlis.org.

Psionics, as that's basically the ONLY place where the Avlis psionic powers are described.

Surprised it's not on the list, but as it is not i voted other of course. :)

Psionics is #1 for me too - particularly if you count all the times I've consulted with my printed-out hard copy. The stats for most read pages from the wiki aren't quite accurate if you care to consider how often I (and probably others) read my ink and paper form. Every time I'm approaching a new level I check the powers.

Aside from psionics I use nations & deity info the most. Race and class info is really important when I go to create a new character, but otherwise I don't go there as much.

Several of the wiki psionics descriptions are woefully inadequate and when I find some more time I'd like to flesh them out a little. One glaring example that comes to mind is Wrench. I had no idea how effective and impressive this power can be because the written description is cryptic and provides no numeric values for the effects. As soon as I found the stats at http://www.avlis.org/viewtopic.php?t=71 ... ght=wrench I was sold on it.
