The Wizardry Wiki is a Wizardry-based wiki which aims to create a complete encyclopedia of knowledge about everything to do with Sir-Tech's Wizardry video game franchise.

Wizardry Wiki was originally founded in Fandom (formerly known as Wikicities and later as Wikia) and created by TGOskar with JaredKFan, on September 2008. Due to the former administrators inactivity, the wiki was adopted fourteen years later by one of the dedicated fan, Gamerhenky. The wiki has always been very quiet due to lack of franchise recognition by western fans, presumably due to the franchise being forgotten while it still has more recognition among Japanese fans.

On March 21, 2023, the wiki has decided to leave and abandoning from Fandom due to numerous of issues such as intrusive advertising, long-lasting bugs, restrictions on customization, etcetera. This is also happens in several other wikis where many are forked or declared their independence.

In regards to the hosting platform, Gamerhenky the current active wiki admin has considered to move the wiki to its own new hosting which is good to become a part of independent wiki alliance affiliates or membership, however it was never eventuated due to lack of source funding the website domain and potentially unforeseen high server costs per month to maintain it, as such, Wizardry Wiki was officially inducted into the wiki.gg wikifarm, with all contents forked over.

On March 28th, 2023, the wiki founded in a new home migrated from the former, with the new logo designed by Gamerhenky, and skin designed by Magiczocker, taking inspiration from Emonoya's Wizardry fansite and the early home computer ports of Wizardry games.

As of February 27, the wiki has become part of the membership on Gaming Wiki Network[1] (short of GWN) as a 20th member and the milestone celebration.
