UA Bloodlines Edit

Would this be the correct section for UA-style Bloodlines? While technically Racial, they seem to function more like a scaling Trait. --Be well 23:06, September 23, 2009 (UTC)

Looks like a good place as any, just be sure to create a new category for it ;-) --Ghostwheel 23:10, September 23, 2009 (UTC)
I'm not sure of the proper way, but tried to do so. Please let me know if I should alter or remove anything I did. --Be well 00:23, September 24, 2009 (UTC)

Semantic Navigation Edit

The subcategories for Character Option have been created, but I can't think of any additional properties to add to these to make them searchable. Anyone have any thoughts on how they'd like to be able to search any of this material? - TarkisFlux 16:05, September 25, 2009 (UTC)

Property:Type (which should have zero restrictions on it) is a string and useful for searching feats. Property:Prerequisite as well, which also should have no restrictions, is also a string and useful for searching. Hopefully the string search on general strings isn't dumb.

If it behaves anything like the search tied into the Property:Prerequisite pages, it's exact matches only and very dumb. We'll have to get a filter up and working to test properly though. Later today probably. - TarkisFlux 18:53, September 25, 2009 (UTC)
If I'm already hacking semantic drilldown to not be buggy, I guess it's not much more of a stretch to add in some better searching. Surgo 18:54, September 25, 2009 (UTC)
In case it wasn't clear on your talk page, you don't need to hack searching as well. The string filter can be set to accept any text at all. It still tries to help you out with a drop down and auto-selecting the closest match if you're typing something that corresponds to the start of an actual entry, but you can delete out the junk and it works fine. It's live on this nav page (that I can't wiki link to because it doesn't format right) if you want to play with it. - TarkisFlux 01:31, September 26, 2009 (UTC)

Page Formatting Edit

Trying to determine which works better, the list with explanation like is up there now, or a table with explanation like the 3.5e homebrew page. Here's an example of the latter:

Alternate Class Features Racial Substitution Levels Bloodlines
Not every ranger casts spells, and not every paladin is LG. Sometimes elven wizards cast differently than the rest of us. Occasionally your lineage matters as much as your career.
Feats Flaws Traits
Not every adventurer brings the same options to the fight. Some adventurers have serious problems. It's the minor things that help set you apart.
Domains
The powers that a god can bestow upon his chosen are many.

I'd like to do something more than the basic bullet list we had here before, preferably something that can be standardized and ported to all of the other nav pages. Thoughts appreciated. - TarkisFlux 21:55, November 6, 2009 (UTC)
