I started the Tolwyn article as I felt it was time to add him to the database. All of this data comes straight from the CIC Encyclopedia and may require some new edits and such. If anyone wants to help me improve this article, I'd appreciate it. This is just to get it started, I am aware that the Encyclopedia has its errors and I will fix them as I find them. -Aeronautico

Phew! That was a very long article to review. I suggest that someone with copious spare time might like to break up the article into appropriate sections. - Wedge

We ought to keep the question marks in the birth date. We don't know exactly when he or Kruger were born. - Bob 15:40, 20 August 2010 (CDT)

LOAF's old timeline lists him as being born on .101. Which would explain why he might consider turning twenty-six "five years away" (he graduated on .89, before his twenty-second birthday), and explains why Kruger would have graduated in the same class as him had he joined the five-year academy at 17.
Except... that the source for his date of birth is cited as "KSC", which is not listed in the index, and I can't for the life of me think of what it might be. I skimmed through the Kilrathi Saga manual and couldn't find anything referring to it.
Never mind Pilgrim Stars, which states his age as sixty-three. I'm still not sure how to handle that one.
One more thing: are we certain about the year of Tolwyn's death? Maybe the Prophecy guide has something to say about it; all I know is that it's not in the game and the novel calls it "long and sensational", which means it could have dragged into 2674 or longer. - Bob 16:31, 20 August 2010 (CDT)
I'm just following Dund's policy. If we're unsure for the source of the 'KSC', why not ask LOAF about it? And if it turns out that there really are multiple conflicting dates, we may have to just list them all. Isn't that what we're supposed to do for conflicts? Just state the cases and not try to explain them? - Wedge

KSC is the Kilrathi Saga Calender. And yes we should list them all and in that case source them all so people understand where the conflicts arise from. We don't need to explain them away as much as perhaps provide context. --Dundradal 21:16, 20 August 2010 (CDT)
