  • 17 Feb 2009 - added link to the Category:Race
  • 12 Sept 2007 - added nozplink to suppress all cat links involving purpose
  • 19 Aug 2007 - added link for Template:OtherResourcesBox, and new altname field
  • 07/31/2007 - If zone or race is an asterisk (*) then "Multiple (see below)" will be displayed with no links. Any links needed must be added manually by the user.
  • 12/08/2006 NEW FIELD faction added. Displayed after purpose, in ()'s. Builds category links for <faction> (Faction) and <faction> NPCs.
  • 11/20/2006 NEW FIELD purpose added. Defines the reason for the NPC. Possible types are: Quest, Ecology, Lore, etc. If the NPC has a purpose under its name (like <Provisioner>, <Dismal Rage Priest>, <Broker>, etc.) use that WITHOUT the <> brackets! ONE exception to this is the Prophets; use purpose=Prophet. See Category:NPC Types for all currently defined purpose categories. Default value if purpose is undefined or blank is "Quest" as there are far more of them than any other type, and Quest NPCs are the ones our users are gonna input the most.
