!XXIIVV - The first "personal wiki" I ever came across, back when I was like 14 and scrolling through random itch.io projects.

Ritual Dust - "I am a multidisciplinary folk and fantasy artist interested in the transmission and creation of folklore, the magic of the land, and ancestral and communal knowledge."
Clarity Flowers - The personal wiki of a trans woman who makes games and music and software and art and writing and stuff. Sound familiar? :3
