|I'd like to give you this lionring for your efforts in bringing my dream of hosting open game content to life. Thank you <3--GamerAim (talk) 11:03, 21 August 2017 (MDT)|
Hello, Clockwerk66! I don't have access to the books you've been transcribing, so I just wanted to make sure you've been checking the designation of product identity in the document.--GamerAim (talk) 10:53, 22 August 2017 (MDT)
- Hello GamerAim. As far as EN Publishing & EN World En5ider are concerned, the Open Game Content disclaimers in their publications read as follows: The game rule information in this article is designated Open Game Content. All of the other material in this article, including maps and illustrations (including illustrations in the public domain), narrative and descriptive text, character and place names, trade dress, “EN Publishing,” “EN World,” “EN5ider,” EN Publishing product and article titles, and EN World and EN Publishing logos, are designated Product Identity.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Clockwerk66 (talk • contribs). Please sign your posts.
- Hey again. I just managed to get an answer from En5ider regarding what they mean by "narrative and descriptive text". They say, and I quote: "It refers to the non-mechanical parts of the document. In an adventure, for example, a monster would be OGC, but the description of an NPC's personality and motives would not be. It's the "body" text of an article, as opposed to the new mechanics within it." Clockwerk66 (talk) 07:33, 23 August 2017 (MDT)
Hello again. On feats: If you make a new category of feat, you should make a new feat list page for them. I did this for Fell Experiment and Celestial Experiment feats, for instance. Most of the general system-inclusive pages should be done, so for many specific types like that, you need only include a DPL for the one system (see Past Life feats).
Additionally, you left the summary parameter out of many feats. That is needed for the DPL. You can usually copy part of the benefit for the summary, as long as it's short and summarizes the feat :) --GamerAim (talk) 11:19, 25 August 2017 (MDT)
- That's odd....when I go to create a new feat, there's no actual field for me to put a "summary" of the description. Maybe I'm missing something? Clockwerk66 (talk) 13:10, 25 August 2017 (MDT)
I believe I have finished all of your requests. I made weapon, ammo and magic item templates and replaced the saber with it (as you'll see in your watchlist). All of the existing equipment pages now support 5e, unless I somehow missed one. There's a lot here and it really is difficult to make metapages, templates and preloads without knowing what the end result should look like, so if you come across a type of page I haven't covered yet and don't know what to do, feel free to ask :)
All of the templates and preloads are now listed on the D20 Open Game Content Publication Transcription Project page as well, for your (and my) convenience :) --GamerAim (talk) 09:21, 22 September 2017 (MDT)
- Thank you very much for your help GamerAim! I think there's just the pages for armors left now, and then we should be set for a while --Clockwerk66 (talk) 09:37, 22 September 2017 (MDT)
- Oh, by the way, there's a couple OGC publications that include diseases in them, so we'll need a OGC:Diseases page as well. --Clockwerk66 (talk) 14:37, 22 September 2017 (MDT)
Hello, Clockwerk66. As per this page, there's been some small changes to EN5ider transcriptions. From now on, the product and base are "EN Publishing" and the publisher is "EN World" on all former EN5ider pages. As such, the new product page is EN Publishing (don't worry about the lack of publication template; this is per GD's orders). This is per the request of the folks from EN Publishing. I've already taken care of updating past pages, so you only need to concern yourself with future transcriptions :) --GamerAim (talk) 05:38, 24 November 2017 (MST)
