The following format should be used for Storyline NPC pages:

Page name: The name can be the full name of the non-player character, please create a redirect to the page with the first name only if the full name is used. Insert #REDIRECT [[Name]] on the new page.


Use the Storynpcbox template to insert an info box on the right. Blank fields will not appear in the box. The template will also place the page in the corresponding category for the storyline, so this template should only be used for GM NPCs in officially named storylines (e.g. Cross Into Shadows).

Copy/paste code:

|storyline = <!-- add storyline2, storyline3, storyline4, and up to storyline9 fields on a new line, as appropriate -->
|gender = 
|race = <!-- add race using established wiki article name so that it properly links -->
|culture = <!-- add culture using established wiki article name so that it properly links -->
|life = <!-- Is the NPC dead or alive? -->
|hometown = <!-- where does this NPC call home? -->
|relationships = 
|alias = 
|affiliation = }}

If the NPC is part of multiple storylines, add storyline2, storyline3, storyline4, and on up to storyline9 fields, as appropriate. If there are more than nine storylines, this template will need to be revised to add more fields. Inserting |include=no will remove the NPC from storyline categories. This is helpful when a category does not exist.


This should go immediately below the Storynpcbox template and should not have any headers. Introduce the character, storyline s/he was active in, and other basic information.

Below the introduction, either header 2 or header 3 can be used, but header 3 looks better on shorter pages.


Use the <pre{{log3}}> tag to easily add the appearance of the character.
