Copyright and Stats[edit]

Dieties in the Player's Handbook, are we allowed to mention them? Or ar they copyrighted? And I can't seem to get the spells to work. What's the code for that?--Ramses IV 19:14, 10 January 2008 (MST)

I can't seem to get Full Attack on there. Huh?--Ramses IV 20:08, 10 January 2008 (MST)
Spells; this is the template you'll need for that, and Mari Alune (DnD NPC) is an excellent example of how it's used (since I didn't get around to giving instructions on how to use it).
Full attack; the params melee1–melee4 and ranged1–ranged4 are for full attacks.
Deity names; I honestly have no idea. I'd like to think so long as you don't give info on them, you can refer to them by name.
Let me know if you have any further problems. —Sledged (talk) 21:13, 10 January 2008 (MST)
  1. On Full Attack; I have melee1 and melee2 now, but both the regular attack and the Full Attack are called 'Melee'. There's no way to change this?
  2. I can't seem to get the horse's advancement down. Is it supposed to be like that? I thought it "leveled" up with the paladin.
  3. Should I put down the description of all the special abilities?
  4. I can't help but think I've messed up the formatting. The problem is, there's not 'standard' NPC format. Every NPC is different. --Ramses IV 13:54, 11 January 2008 (MST)
Oh, and why is it that the name and CR keep on going below the stats?--Ramses IV 14:00, 11 January 2008 (MST)
  1. With the new stat block, WotC decided that listing standard attacks was redundant, since the standard attack is usually just the first attack in the full attack routine. So all the entries list full attacks. One notable exception to this is Manyshot feat. Since it can't be done as part of a full attack, it warrants it's own entry (see Kiara Windborne (DnD NPC) for an example).
  2. The paladin's mount does level up with the paladin (though it's not a one-to-one ratio. See Paladin's Mount). Don't forget to adjust skill points, feats, BAB, and saves with the mount's bonus HD. In fact, your mount should be near identical to Jehosephat.
  3. I wouldn't bother with special ability descriptions. From what I've seen in source books, base class special ability descriptions aren't listed in the new stat blocks, just racial and PrC abilities. And even those are omitted if they can be found in the MM glossary or are exactly the same as abilities from one of the core base classes.
  4. Well, I tried to provide insightful examples for every field in the How-To, but if you need a better example, see Sir Silvershield (DnD NPC). It's probably the closest NPC to this one (though he doesn't cast spells because the low Wis).
  5. Don't know for sure. It doesn't do that in my browser. What browser and version are you using?

Right, thanks. I'm using Internet Explorer, the most recent version. But you say you can't tell? Then I guess it doesn't really matter then. --Ramses IV 15:16, 11 January 2008 (MST)
Apparently, IE is rendering the caption tag differently, but oddly enough, the caption for the author template is still being displayed above the author box. —Sledged (talk) 15:34, 12 January 2008 (MST)
Aargh! I can't get the advancement perimeter to go away. Jehosephat doesn't have it, and neither does Wind striker. But for some reason it still shows up on mine. I can't even change it at all. --Ramses IV 12:33, 12 January 2008 (MST)
It goes away if you supply a race parameter. —Sledged (talk) 15:34, 12 January 2008 (MST)
Also, when it's visible, it's affected by the hdadv and favcls parameters. —Sledged (talk) 15:39, 12 January 2008 (MST)
Thanks, Sledged.--Ramses IV 17:14, 12 January 2008 (MST)
