Citadel Explained Rewrite
« on: May 31, 2007, 11:13:38 PM »
I took it and reformatted it, stole quotes from users, and generally plagiarized everything I could.

Special thanks to Ancient Gamer, Nobody, and Moon of whom I misquoted (or didn't quote at all) and stole posts from to make it possible. :)

It was one of those labors of love where there is no love involved because I hate documentation. It is sorely needed though and I don't know if I am the best qualified to do it.

So, if you can find it in your heart, please read through the pages and give me any and ALL suggestions you may have. I need it to be comprehensive yet approachable. It needs to be short and concise while still explaining everything. There are plenty more contradictions we can put to them and they would fit them all.

It is hard to write html in word to get the spell check so I could have easily missed stuff.

I totally blanked with the "Play" portion. All I have in my head is, read this stuff and use it, but there must be more. I left it blank vs. embarassing myself further with empty words.

The mechanics will recieve some tender care as the days progress as well. Concentrate for now, if you will, on the first three pages for edits and the fourth for any ideas whatsoever. ;)

Thanks in advance!

Not bad. To make it short:

Add links where they make sense - for instance to all Codices or Scrolls, where their examples are mentioned, and whenever there are later more exhaustive definitions of important terms.

And the 'Play' part? Make it a large empty page with a "You will find this one out." sentence. :)
Do not correct me, I know I am wrong.

Do you mean the "Play" section or something inside? (I only did a quick check)

I never did figure out what to put in the Play section.

--found two....were there more?
