[edit] [purge] Template-info Template documentation

This template is for use in any article about one of the planes of existence in the Forgotten Realms multiverse. All parameters except name are optional and if unspecified they will not appear.

The template has been expanded to separate the three cosmologies into their own tabs in the info box. Parameters are grouped by a suffix:

For each cosmology, please chose a type from the list shown below in the Parameters section. For example, the Demonweb Pits was a layer in the Abyss in the Great Wheel cosmology, so type-GW = Layer, but in the World Axis model, it was a Fiendish Plane, so type-WA = [[Fiendish Plane]].

Parameters

image 
Optional. Usually an image depicting the environment of the plane. Just specify the file name. The image will be resized to fit the infobox. For backward compatibility, [[File:]] and [[Image:]] tags should still work.
caption 
Optional. A description of the image, if present. This field will be italicized for you.
name 
Required. The common name for the plane.
othernames 
Optional. Other names, perhaps former names, for this plane.
demonym 
Optional. What are the inhabitants of this plane collectively called?
natives 
Optional. Creatures whose natural habitats are found on this plane.
languages 
Optional. The primary language(s) spoken on this plane.
color-pool-color 
Optional. Not shown above. The color of a color pool to this plane from the Astral Plane.
color-pool-image 
Optional. Not shown above. A color sample image of the color given in color-pool-color. Just specify the file name. The image will be resized to fit the infobox.
curtain-color 
Optional. Not shown above. The color of an ethereal curtain to the border ethereal of this plane from the deep ethereal.
curtain-image 
Optional. Not shown above. A color sample image of the color given in curtain-color. Just specify the file name. The image will be resized to fit the infobox.
fork-material 
Optional. Not shown above. Some planes could be reached using the plane shift spell, requiring one or more tuning forks made from various materials. You may put the material here, with or without a link.
fork-note 
Optional. Not shown above. A tuning fork chimes at a particular note represented by the letters A–G and an optional sharp (♯) or flat (♭) accidental. You may specify accidentals by using either the hash mark (#) or a lower-case B (b), or the words sharp or flat. Examples: "A-flat", "Ab", "f sharp" and "F#" should all render properly. Requires fork-material.
fork-chord 
Optional. Not shown above. If more than one tuning fork is required, then the fork-note becomes the base note of a chord, modified by either major, minor, or perhaps other chord types. Requires fork-material.
fork-audio 
Optional. Not shown above. The filename of an .ogg audio file of a tuning fork of this pitch or a chord of tuning forks.

Traits

Main article: Planar traits
type-GW 
Optional. Great Wheel choices are: Inner Plane, Outer Plane, Energy Plane, Parallel Plane, Material Plane, Anomalous Plane, and Transitive Plane. Other valid choices are: Demiplane, Realm, Divine Realm, Layer, and Unknown.
shape-size-GW 
Optional. Planes come in many different forms. If the plane has layers, indicate how many here. Other possible values include Finite, Infinite, Self-Contained, and many other descriptive terms as appropriate. Example: 7 infinite layers.
gravity-GW 
Optional. Gravity sometimes operates differently on a plane. Possible values include Normal, Light, Heavy, None, Objective Directional, and Subjective Directional.
time-GW 
Optional. Time sometimes flows differently on a plane. Possible values include Normal, Flowing, Erratic, and Timeless. If it's "Normal", you can leave this blank.
morphic-GW 
Optional. An indication of how malleable or rigid the matter is that forms planar features. Possible values include Alterable, Static, Highly, Magically, Divinely, and even Sentient.
element-energy-GW 
Optional. Some planes are influenced by the elements or made up almost entirely of a particular element. These are said to be "Dominant" for that element. Possible values include Air-Dominant, Earth-Dominant, Fire-Dominant, Water-Dominant, Negative-Dominant, and Positive-Dominant with either a minor or major degree of influence.
alignment-GW 
Optional. Some planes have an alignment which tends to produce and attract creatures of that alignment. Please use the {{alignment grid}} for Great Wheel planes.
magical-GW 
Optional. On some planes, magic works differently than on the Prime Material Plane. Possible values include Normal, Wild, Enhanced, Impeded, Limited, and Dead (for a no-magic zone).
layers-GW 
Optional. If there is a short list of layer names, you can add them here in a comma-separated list or use <br /> tags. Not for the Abyss.
layer-number-GW 
Optional. If type-GW is "Layer", and you know the layer's number, put it here as an integer.
location-GW 
Optional. If this location is contained in something else, indicate it here. Examples: to get a subheading that says "66th layer of the Abyss", set type-GW to "Layer", layer-number-GW to "66", and location-GW to "the Abyss".
refs-GW 
Optional. You may place <ref> tags here so they don't clutter up the infobox.
faith trait 
Optional. Deities that reside on a plane often influence the social atmosphere for visitors to a plane. Possible values include None, Mildly Faith-aligned, Strongly Faith-aligned, and the name or names of the deities involved.

Navigation Links

Links to categories pertaining to the plane can be added to the bottom of the infobox using the following parameters.

inhabitants 
Optional. Setting this to anything (typically "yes") will automatically generate a link to the category [[Category:Inhabitants of {{PAGENAME}}]].
deities
Optional. Setting this to anything (typically "yes") will automatically generate a link to the category intersection of [[Category:Inhabitants of {{PAGENAME}}]] and [[Category:Deities]].
locations
Optional. Setting this to anything (typically "yes") will automatically generate a link to the category [[Category:Locations in {{PAGENAME}}]].
organizations 
Optional. Setting this to anything (typically "yes") will automatically generate a link to the category [[Category:Organizations in {{PAGENAME}}]].
settlements 
Optional. Setting this to anything (typically "yes") will automatically generate a link to the category [[Category:Settlements in {{PAGENAME}}]].
useon 
Optional. Uses "on" instead of "in" when generating categories for locations, organizations, or settlements, i.e., [[Category:Settlements on Mount Celestia]] rather than [[Category:Settlements in Mount Celestia]]
usethe 
Optional. Adds the word "the" before the page name when generating any of the category links, i.e., [[Category:Inhabitants of the Abyss]] rather than [[Category:Inhabitants of Abyss]]
linkname 
Optional (not shown above). If the name is different than the one used in the categories, you can specify the correct category name here. For example, "Locations in Ysgard (layer)" instead of "Locations in Ysgard".
