Transclusion Testing

When a section of a page has a heading that is formatted or that is a link, it seems that you need to use everything between the equals signs to refer to the section by its heading.

So instead of:
{{#section-h:Loresinging|Flares}}

The Loresinging article's transclusion of its Flares section required this instead:
{{#section-h:Loresinging|'''[[Flare|Flares]]'''}}

But the whole section was not really needed. Only the table needs to be transcluded, so...

I inserted section label tags around the table in the Loresinging article to name this section "flaresTable":
<section begin=flaresTable />
{the table is here}
<section end=flaresTable />

Then this code works for transcluding only the Flares Table itself:
{{#section:Loresinging|flaresTable}}

Testing the transclusion of only the Flares Table:

This is just me experimenting with the table first made by Alisande1218 here, they were asking for color suggestions: User:ALISANDE1218/Sandbox. If there is a way to make the top and bottom border of column 9 and column 15 disappear, I have not found it yet.

Games of Elanthia

Not sure this warrants a special page but it would be a way to help promote knowledge of the various games in Elanthia. No clue how to organize this kind of list and it is far from complete.

Possible Game Types:

  • Games hosted by GM's/NPC's (Pennant Chase)
  • Game systems of CHE's/MHO's (GHOUL/HOUSE)
  • Games hosted by CHE's/MHO's (Pirate Wars, Mudpits)
  • Unhosted games, one player (Gambling at FWI)
  • Unhosted games, multiple players (Roshambo, Dice Games, Dreaven Games)

List of Various Games:


Character Description Template

Location in Character Base Description

Today I added this char description to the Face painting article to demonstrate where a face painting appears in relation to other cosmetics and features. Saving this here because I want to check out some existing articles that may need something similar added, or may already have something similar, and if so I hope to go back and make my Face painting one standardized to look like the others. I didn't have time to explore all the various pages today, but had my face painting junk out so went ahead and made the edit because it was badly needed imho.

Here, in bold text, is the location of a face painting in a character's description:

You see Lady XXXX YYYYY the Bard.
She appears to be a Human.
She is tall and appears to be young.  She has a shimmer of <EYESHADOW-COLOR> on her eyelids, beautifully <EYELINER-COLOR>-outlined blue eyes , <BLUSH-COLOR> cheeks, glossy <LIPSTICK-COLOR> full lips, bold <WARPAINT-COLOR> stripes on her face, and <POWDERED>, <SOFT>, tanned skin.  She has long, straight blonde hair pinned back on one side with a <HAIR ADORNMENT>.  She is inked with a <TEMPORARY HENNA TATTOO>.
She has a <FACE PAINTING>.
She has a <REGULAR PERMANENT TATTOO>, and a <PIERCING>.
She has <WOUNDS>.

Shields Section for Loresinging Article

Young bards (and some of us older ones) need this information.

Shields

Shields yield special messaging which reveals the ________ in the ________ verse. The loresong will also reveal the fact that the item is/was/has ________, though this information is already available via the ________.

Loresinging will never discover the type (small, medium, large, tower) of shield; to find that information, INSPECT the shield.

A standard shield made from magical materials (such as mithril or vultite) with no enhancives will yield the following messaging:

  • First verse (reveals standard information about weight, value, material):
The first thing that strikes you about the aegis is the weight, which is about 7 pounds. In your best estimation, it's worth about 17,000 silvers. You can also tell that the imflass aegis is predominantly crafted of imflass.
  • Second verse (reveals purpose, faint aura of magic alludes to magic material):
You sense a faint aura of magic surrounding the aegis. From the pitch of the vibration you determine that the purpose of the aegis is as a shield.
  • Third verse (reveals enchant, alludes to a defensive purpose):
It has a bonus of +12 from a normal aegis, and the way it vibrates in tune with your voice tells you that it serves some type of defensive purpose, different from that of normal armor.
  • Fourth verse (reveals sanctification/bless and defensive purpose):
The magical harmonics reveal that this is an item which serves as a shield when held in the left hand.
You feel that you have reached the end of the aegis's song.

Examples of special messaging for shields:

  • spikes
  • ensorcell
  • cleric blessed
  • sanctified
Verse 2: You sense that this is some type of holy item.
Verse 4: The harmonics generated tell you that the shield has been sanctified for use by a Cleric or Paladin in the fight against the undead.
