Just remember to put "Fnord ... You're not cleared for that, citizen." in there someplace. ;)

Because any joke worth telling is worth running into the ground...

Under magical styles, are we going to list the various paths and books of Path/Book Magic, or is that too granular?

That should probably be a separate list, as it represents a separate magic system.

Absolutely. It's also completely normal to practice several paths, and I get the impression it's not standard practice to have several Magical Styles?

Yeah, I realized that would be a good idea when I got to the D advantages, and came across the note on Doesn't Breathe (Gills) that Gills Only is a 0-point feature. Whoops, I thought, better index those, too.

Idle question: Are all 0-point traits features, or is a feature a specific thing in and of itself?

I apologize for being inconsistent about whether or not to index compound phrases as "Very Fat" vs. "Fat, Very" or both or whatever. Fortunately it's a wiki, we can fix it.

btw, good idea to set up a wiki for this, Jürgen. I've been meaning to do a text-file index just for myself for some time, but it's a lot more useful this way.

Paths are the equivalent of colleges, not styles.

I think all 0-point traits are features, yes.

I have been asked not to directly copy the template lists on the forums to the wiki.

Perhaps this is just as well - if we go through the templates one by one, we can also add them into additional sub-index pages to make them more useful.

Here, for instance, is the index page for occupational templates in alphabetical orders - but here is an attempt to organize templates by genre. Which raises the question: How should we structure the genres?

I've started with a basic subdivision between Fantasy, Modern Day, and Science Fiction, and then added the subgenres of Dungeon Fantasy, Action, and Monster Hunters... but Monster Hunters is already problematic, since it is a crossover between "Modern Day" and "Fantasy".

I also hit on the idea of adding occupational lenses intended for specific templates directly below the actual template entries, similar to how we have done advantage-specific enhancements and limitations on the Advantage index. Which brings me to another question: Are there any "occupational lenses" which aren't tied to specific sets of templates (like all "Action" templates)?
