Hi people everyone, I have added most of the info on the Derro but for some reason I cannont get the reference tags at the bottom of the first paragraph of the "Society" section to work properly. I have tried retyping it multiple times but cannot for the life of me figure out what I have done wrong. Any help you can give would be much appreciated, knowing me I've probably overlooked something painfully simple but I want to get it sorted before doing the "History" section. Thanks for any help you can give.Cheddar bearer 17:32, April 27, 2010 (UTC)

Short version: you were missing slashes in your secondary reference tags. Long version: All tags need to be closed. When you first make a reference you open the ref tag, put the citation template, and then close the ref tag. When you use that reference a second time, you need to put that slash to close the tag. That makes it a "self-closing" tag if you will. It would probably also work to do <ref name="foo"></ref>, but that isn't quite as pretty. And that concludes today's computer science lecture... sorry about that. —aeakett 17:44, April 27, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for that Aeakett I knew it would be something like that but I just could not quite figure out what it was that was wrong, had hit some sort of bizarre reference based mental block. Hopefully next time I won't make such a silly mistake. Thanks again.--Cheddar bearer 15:53, April 29, 2010 (UTC)

Plural and adjectival forms

Bestiary uses derros as the plural form:

Descended from mysterious fey that once dwelt deep underground, the derros lust for the comforts of the surface...
  — Bestiary p70

and derro as an adjective:

Derro leaders are typically sorcerers...

This seems to be the Pathfinder standard with very few exceptions. —Oznogon (talk) 01:33, 30 March 2015 (UTC)
