Here is a set of guidelines for writing an article about a particular skill that your hero has or may acquire. If you can't complete all of the necessary points, mark the article as a stub so other people can fill it in. Feel free to be as elaborate or as concise as you want.

Structure for writing a skill article

  1. Add a picture of the skill either in action or one of its effects. (If you can't, add "{{picture}}" at the top of the page to mark it as requiring an image.)
  2. Indicate what type of skill it is by saying "Type: " followed by either Combat skill, Trade skill or Transportational skill. (Make sure that the word "Type" and the first letter of the skill name are capitalized.)
  3. Now, give some general information about the skill (at least three or four sentences) such as when it is used, what general effect it may have and how hard it is for the hero to master. If you want you may also provide instructions about how to use the skill.
  4. Now give an idea about what effect each level may have, with level bands of 1-5, 6-10, 10-20 and 21+. This is completely made up so you can be as creative as you like, just so long as each "level" is more devious/powerful/painful/effective. Also, make sure you use a lvl3 headline for each level.
  5. After you have done as much of the above as possible, categorise your article by adding "[[Category:Skills]]" '''and''' [[Category: Combat skills/Trade skills/Transportational skills (one of the three, depending on the type)]] at the end.
