Canons

NOTICE: Canon Contest 2024

What are Canons?
When wandering throughout The Backrooms, some things may simply not make sense. A note from an unknown source documenting destruction, a Level which feels too reminiscent of certain events. No matter what, it's impossible to deny the fact that stories exist. It's not that we don't acknowledge these stories and events, it's the fact that they dip into each other, shatter each other's tales, breaking away at what founded these stories in the first place. They break laws established early on, and they show no indication of stopping.

Collected below are documents unearthed about each canon. If you wish to contribute to one, read the works under them first to get an understanding of what each represents. If you show interest in forming your own canon, check the bottom of the page for a guide.

BLACK!KNIGHTS

If it exists, it can be exploited. The Backrooms are no different. There is a force mounting, an army of darkness that comes and goes with means unknown. You have come to know them, one way or another. A rumor, a story, a point of caution. Will you live the rest of your life free of their taint… Or will you find them?

So you wanna build a canon?

Making a canon is quite simple! As long as you have a good, original idea for a canon — it should be something others will have some level of interest in writing for — you can start work on the first few pages for the canon! This should not be a canon hub page, but a regular article that introduces the canon's universe and rules.

Collaboration is a vital aspect of every canon, and is the main difference between a canon and merely someone's personal series of articles. Because of this, to get featured on this page (and to get a canon hub and tag) a canon needs to have:

  • 7 canon pages,
  • 3 authors credited across any of those 7,
  • The canon should be open to new contributions and collaborators,
  • The canon shouldn't be marked as 'finished', even if the main storyline is concluded happily ever after — new information should always be allowed if it lines up with the canon!

If you want to control the automatic previews of pages on the feeds here you should use the preview component. You just use it as [[include component:preview text=Your 100 character preview here]].

If you have any questions, ask a member of staff for some help!
