Some creature attributes like AS/DS/TD can be variable. If the variation is due to generated level then we should only list a single value corresponding to an average level creature. If it is due to spellups, stance, or other factors then we should try to list a range. ZHOUY1 (talk) 02:20, 16 June 2017 (CDT)

Proposed style changes

These are fairly substantial changes since there are many creature pages, but would like to know if it is worth doing.

  • I feel aesthetically putting every creature description inside log2 is an eyesore and breaks up the flow of the page. It would be fine to add a "Description" category at the top of each page and put the description in normal text. (This would also bring it to the same format as the DragonRealms wiki.)
  • The templates could use a little cleanup.
    • Creature height/size is a basic combat attribute and easily checked with appraise, so it should be included.
    • TD for each circle is not necessary since it is the same for each magic sphere with adjustments for semi-casters, only Ele/Spirit/Mental/Sorc/Bard/Ranger/Paladin should be different (and I am not even sure Ranger/Paladin are actually different).
    • Add a flag for whether a creature changes stances.

I have made sure that the wiki team is aware of this suggestion. It may be better discussed in the wiki thread on the official Discord server, however. HOST-GSKEBECHET (talk) 09:56, 28 March 2023 (CDT)
