Well, I can push DFM1&2 up to the next few nights, and DF9 as well, before I go on holiday this weekend.

I agree that they don't belong under Background Lenses. For one, they're 25 points rather than 20, so you can't use them in the regular GURPS Action 1 character creation framework. They also serve, in a sense, to do direct character creation, rather than working as as a flavourful add-on to a character creation process the say the 20 point ones from vol. 1 do.

Indexing them elsewhere under Lenses might be worthwhile, or it might not. They seem to cover basically everything between them, so there's a low likelihood of anyone ever adding additional such 25 point Lenses in a Pyramid article or the like, so it's probably not worthwhile to do add them to the index anywhere, although a brief reference to the fact that they exist might be good. Depending on how exactly the index is structured.

Speaking of templates, most of the racial templates from the Racial Templates by Genre page are still missing from the alphabetical list. Does anyone want to tackle that?

It's been deliberate on my part, due to wanting to cut down on work. My plan was to add as much as I (or anyone else) had to the genre lists, then copy/paste to a spreadsheet, reorder it, paste back to the alphabetical page, then tweak the formatting.

Where should I put clothing? It seems like it might fit under either gear or armour, or possibly both. I'm adding it to gear for the moment.

If it doesn't have armor stats, then "gear" is probably the best fit.

Since I suddenly came across a bunch of alchemical potions in GURPS Creatures of the Night 4, I created an Alchemical Potions page for the Index.

However, it would probably a good idea to have a "stat line" beyond merely mentioning the name of the potion. But what kind of information should be included?

Another note:

Tomorrow my Wikidot.com account expires. Since I want to switch to a cheaper account type, I can't just prolong it but have to wait until it expires and then buy the new account type.

Therefore, it can be that the wiki will be in lockdown for a few hours. But don't worry - this will be rectified as soon as I am up.

I don't see what else you could include. Any actual rules would put it well outside fair use and there really isn't anything else to say, given that their names are self-explanatory.

GURPS Infinite Worlds: Worlds of Horror has some interesting stuff.

The "Frankenstein Treatment" on p. 11 is a "medical procedure" but also a "racial template". How many "medical procedures" are there across the supplements? Are they also worth an Index page of their own?

Oh, and I have also created Alternate Earths and Diseases index pages.
