This template defines the table "City". View table.

Template documentation (for the above template, sometimes hidden or invisible)

{{City}} is for use in any article about an active settlement of any size (from Thorp to Metropolis) in the Pathfinder campaign setting. Ruins or any other form on uninhabited settlement should be classified as a "location". Nearly all parameters are optional and can be left blank, though it is preferred to include as many as possible; if undefined, these optional parameters will not appear as part of the template. The recommended image size is a width of 250px, so that it will completely fill the infobox without increasing its size.

This template is based upon the Person Template located at the Forgotten Realms Wiki.

The name of the settlement. This should be the name by which the settlement is most commonly known.
image (optional)
An image representing the settlement. This can either be a depiction of the skyline, a house or neighborhood, its inhabitants, or its flag or symbol. The recommended size is 250px, but if larger, the image should scale to fit the template.
titles (optional)
Any titles, nicknames, or pseudonyms of the settlement.
nation (optional)
The country in which the settlement can be found. If the settlement is located below ground, one should enter "Darklands" here. If it is located on another plane, then the plane should be listed.
region (optional)
Any land or region smaller than the collective region listed above in which the settlement can be found (e.g. state, county, barony, etc). If the settlement is below ground, this should refer to the layer of the Darklands (i.e. Nar-Voth, Sekamina, or Orv) in which the settlement can be found.
size (optional)
The settlement's population range category as defined on p. 203 of the GameMastery Guide and p. 212 of Ultimate Campaign. These categories break down as follows:
population (optional)
The current total number of inhabitants.
demographics (optional)
The demographic breakdown of the settlement's population, either by percentage or total numbers.
government (optional)
The settlement's type of government as defined on pp. 206-207 of the GameMastery Guide and p. 231 of Ultimate Campaign, and defined as follows:
  • Anarchy (no formal government)
  • Autocracy (rule by single individual chosen by the people)
  • Council (rule by a group)
  • Magical or Magocracy (leadership by people of great magical power)
  • Oligarchy (rule by a group of the wealthy and powerful)
  • Overlord (single, unelected ruler who achieved power through heredity or overthrow of government)
  • Republic (rule by a parliamentary body of elected or appointed officials)
  • Secret Syndicate (rule by illegal or unofficial group)
  • Theocracy (rule by leader of the most prominent religion)
alignment (optional)
The settlement's overall alignment, representative of its government or inhabitants, if known.
natives (optional)
The demonym for the city: the word used to describe a native of the city.
adjective (optional)
The adjective used to describe entities of or pertaining or relating to the city.
ruler (optional)
The name of the settlement's head of government, either an individual or collective.
leader (optional)
The name or names of other important figures in the community.
latlong (optional)
The settlement's latitude and longitude coordinates, as two decimal numbers separated by a comma and points west and south of Absalom having negative values. (For instance, Absalom's latlong value is 35,4157, 0, and Magnimar's is 48.1813, -28.0538.) These values are stored in the Cargo database as coordinates, allowing other articles or templates to use that data for distance or mapping purposes, such as setting this template's regionmap parameter to {{Region map/tiled}} to show an interactive map of Golarion centered over the settlement.
If you add a latlong and {{Region map/tiled}} to a page at the same time, and you see a map for Absalom instead of the city you entered, purge the page's cache (More menu → Purge cache).
regionmap (optional)
A map of the countryside surrounding the settlement. This can be an image, which are almost always fan-created (thanks, Aeakett!), or a region map template, such as {{Region map/tiled}}.
If regionmap is part of the template, the older interactive {{Region map}} added by the deprecated innerseax/innerseay parameters does not appear, even if regionmap is left empty.
imagesof (optional)
The name of the category that contains images of this city, which appears in the infobox as a link to the category page. For instance, an imagesof value of Korvosa creates a link to Category:Images of Korvosa with the link text "Images of Korvosa". This parameter is case-sensitive. If this parameter is omitted, the infobox uses the article name suffixed by a single "s".
source & page (optional)
The source wherein the settlement was first mentioned, or from which the most information is available. Link the title, and include page number if possible.

Deprecated parameters

innerseax and innerseay (optional)
X and Y pixel coordinates of the city on File:Inner Sea region map.jpg, with X 0/Y 0 being the top left corner of the image. Both parameters must be provided. This adds a dynamic map of the region using {{Region map}}.
Using latlong with regionmap set to {{Region map/tiled}} is preferred.
