About Orain

Orain is a community-driven, not-for-profit[1] wiki network where you and your wiki can shine! That means you can make your free wiki today! Our priority is to work with our diverse community to produce, consolidate, and maintain quality content across multiple subjects and languages, with control in the hands of the community. Founded in 2013, we've been working hard to provide many wikis a reliable home. Whether you're looking for a Wikia alternative or you want to migrate your own wiki to our farm, you've come to the right place. Join us in the quest for a better wiki!

Featured wiki

All The Tropes is a community-edited wiki website dedicated to discussing Creators, Works, and Tropes -- the people, projects and patterns of creative writing in all kinds of entertainment: television, literature, movies, video games, and more.

Single unified login

When you create an account on an Orain wiki, it's automatically created on all of our wikis. And since you only have to log in once to be logged into all of them, you'll rarely have to type your password. Even better, we're the only wiki farm with fully forward-secret SSL/TLS to make sure your password will be kept safe.
