Inner Sea Gods Additions to Template

Inner Sea Gods has three new "categories" included with each of the deities: symbol, sacred animal, and sacred colors. We have two choices: either integrate these elements into the main body of the pages, or include them with this template. I vote for the latter. How do others feel? --Brandingopportunity (talk) 17:32, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

I like the idea of integrating them. What about adding a spot for source like many of the other infobox templates? I say that due to alternate sources for deities like Empty Graves. --FoiledAgain (talk) 20:16, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
I agree that adding a few more parameters to this info box would be useful. I don't think we need to include source information, however, as that's primarily so that a GM can use a given monster or NPC in their game. Since there are no statistics associated with a deity beyond what's being added to this infobox, I don't think we need to cite sources here. They'll be listed in in the References section from in-line citations in the article's body copy. And since many deities are detailed in numerous places, it keeps confusion about which is the primary source out of the infobox.—Paizo Publishing, LLC.png Yoda8myhead (talk) 21:36, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
If you insist on using impeccable logic to counter my poor intuitive feel for aesthetics... ;) --FoiledAgain (talk) 01:13, 20 April 2014 (UTC)
OK, since nobody else has chimed in on this, I will make adjustments to this template by May 1, following the idea I originally posted (i.e. including the new categories in the infobox). If someone thinks this is a bad idea, they should make a good argument before 5/1. --Brandingopportunity (talk) 04:19, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
I just wanted to dive in and argue this is a good idea. I especially welcome the holy symbol addition, as we have many 'deities' that have a symbol but no artwork. So far I have not been satisfied to include such key information within the text. Nice work Brandingopportunity. --Fleanetha (talk) 17:49, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
Well I MEANT to have this done by May 1st, but then somebody around here recommended me to help write a module and then asked to write the biggest thing I've ever worked on for Paizo. So I got a little sidetracked, but it's done now. --Brandingopportunity (talk) 17:00, 23 July 2014 (UTC)}}
Thanks Brandingopportunity: there's no rest for the wicked or wiki editors. --Fleanetha (talk) 18:38, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

Gender parameter

Have we agreed on adding this new parameter to the template yet? - HTD (talk) 10:31, 20 June 2019 (UTC)

Revised 1E/2E infobox sourcing

To avoid the kludge of cramming multiple sources and pages into the source parameter, {{Deity}} and {{City}} now support 1e-source/page and 2e-source/page parameters. They must both be used together to render correctly; to preserve existing behavior on infoboxes, the source and page parameters work as before if the 1e-source parameter is not used. Usage details on Template:Deity/doc and Template:City/doc. See the city template on Kibwe or the deity template on Abadar for examples. -Oznogon (talk) 07:10, 7 December 2020 (UTC)
