Template:Creature tabbed/doc

From PathfinderWiki

{{Creature tabbed}} is for use in any article about any creature or monster in the Pathfinder campaign setting. Some parameters are optional and can be left blank or omitted entirely; if undefined, these optional parameters will not appear as part of the template.

This template is based upon the Forgotten Realms Wiki Creature Template, and is extended from {{Creature}} to use the Tabber extension.

For creatures that exist in only one edition of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, use {{Creature}}, which does not include the edition-specific tabs.

Use this infobox template for creature types, species, and unique non-sentient creatures. For unique sentient creatures, use the {{Person}} or {{Person tabbed}} templates.

Common parameters

These parameters' values do not change regardless of the selected edition.

image (optional)
An image of the creature, using the standard File syntax. The recommended width is 250px, but if larger the image should scale to fit the template. For example, to add an image of a goblin, set this parameter's value to:
[[File:Goblin.jpg|250px|A goblin.]]

1E- and 2E- parameters

These parameters can appear in either edition, with potentially different values.

  • Parameters prefixed with 1E (ie. 1E-alignment) appear exclusively in the 1E tab.
  • Parameters with no prefix (ie. alignment) appear exclusively in the 2E tab.
alignment and 1E-alignment (optional)
Use the {{Alignment grid}} template to indicate the creature's usual alignments. If one but not both editions have a value, the value is used for both editions.
adjective and 1E-adjective (optional)
The adjective used to describe entities of, or pertaining or relating to, the creature. If one but not both editions have a value, the value is used for both editions.
imagesof and 1E-imagesof (optional)
The name of the category that contains images of this creature, which appears in the infobox as a link to the category page. For instance, an imagesof value of goblins create a link to Category:Images of goblins with the link text "Images of goblins". This parameter is case-sensitive. If this parameter is omitted, the infobox uses the article name suffixed by a single "s". If one but not both editions have a value, the value is used for both editions.
name and 1E-name (optional)
The name of the creature. If omitted, the template uses the article name by default. If both name and 1E-name are included, 1E-name adds a linebreak and the value after the name. If using 1E-name, please add the {{1E name}} template after the name to label it.
source, page, 1E-source, 1E-page (optional)
The source wherein the creature was first published, or from which the most information is available. Link the source's title, and include a page number if possible.

2E-only parameters

When used, these parameters appear only in the 2E tab.

traits (optional)
The creature's traits as defined in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, Second Edition. For more information about traits, consult the Core Rulebook or the Pathfinder Reference Document. These must be wrapped in
to display properly, e.g.
will render as .
level (optional)
The creature's level.

1E-only parameters

These 1E-prefixed parameters do not have 2E equivalents.

1E-type (optional)
The creature's type as defined in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and hyperlinked. Examples include Dragon, Humanoid, or Undead. For more information about creature types, consult the Bestiary (page 306) or the Pathfinder Reference Document.
1E-subtype (optional)
A more specific category for the creature in addition to type, as defined in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. For example, a drow would fall under the Humanoid type and the elf subtype. For more information about subtypes, consult the Bestiary (page 310) or the Pathfinder Reference Document.
1E-challenge (optional)
The creature's Challenge Rating, as presented in its primary stat block.
1E-environment (optional)
The environment in which the creature is most likely to be encountered. This is most often included in a creature's stat block, but can also be inferred from its description. It is best to copy the exact words from the creature's stat block into this line capitalizing the first letter of the phrase.
