Talk:Crossing

I think it's time we start tackling the cities. A template would be nice, but I don't know how to do that, so a general outline of what is best to put on each city page I think will work nicely. I want to start with the Crossing because it is most likely to need every topic section we will want in any city. Here is what I'm thinking so far:

A right floating table that contains an overview (see table to the right):

Crossing.jpg
Province: Zoluren
Currency: Kronar
Population:
Established:
Alternate Names: River Crossing
Dominant Race: Human
Governing Individual:
Guild Halls: Bard, Barbarian, Cleric, Empath, Moon Mage, Paladin, Ranger, Thief, Trader, Warrior Mage
Warnings:

Then the following categories:

  • Government, History, and Background
    • Government Type
    • Prominent People
    • History
  • Locations About Town
    • Landmarks
    • Unique Shops and Services
    • Shops (just a link to the shop category for that city)
    • Bars, Inns, and Taverns
    • Prominent Hangouts
  • Important Activities
    • Favors
    • Task Givers
    • Quests
  • Creatures: (Just a link to the creature category for that city)
  • Maps
  • Scripts
  • Miscellaneous

Truly Excellent idea. I'm going to try and whip up a quick template for the infobox (templates really aren't that hard once you get the swing of wikicode). I'm thinking of adding Bank? (yes/no) and Vault? (yes/no) fields to it, too.
Perhaps a more logical place to discuss it all would be a project page: Elanthipedia:Projects/City Articles. I'm going to update the main project page to include it. --Farman 14:07, 27 October 2007 (CDT)
