Regarding the articles in the category of characters that do not appear ingame, could we make an infobox for them? Perhaps a simplified version of the NPC infobox omitting the irrelevant parameters. Additionally, this new infobox could also mention the source of where the character was mentioned.

Support - as suggester Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 14:52, June 17, 2016 (UTC)

Oppose - I fail to see what this would accomplish, not least because the characters in that category vary enormously in the amount of information known about them as well as sources in which they are referenced. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 07:38, June 18, 2016 (UTC)

It'll be just the basics, like name and source. Just the name of the source, the article can explain about the source. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 22:23, June 19, 2016 (UTC)
Yes but what source if there are multiple, as will often be the case? The oldest? The one with the most mentions? All of them? Heck, even things like race aren't certain for a lot of things. I'd go for the parameters Name, First mention date and that's really sort of it, and that would be a pointless infobox then. :/ User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 08:24, June 20, 2016 (UTC)

Support - It only makes sense. --dDbvitC.pngScuzzy Betahib8CAd.png 22:45, June 18, 2016 (UTC)

Support - but it'd need to be small. What would it be called? Achievements Coelacanth0794 Talk Contribs 22:23, June 24, 2016 (UTC)

I guess "Template:Infobox character" should suffice. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 23:30, June 24, 2016 (UTC)
Which already exists. :P And could probably fulfill this thread's purpose, now that I think about it. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 18:50, June 25, 2016 (UTC)
That one is specifically used for the characters from the RS novels. And with some adjustments it could indeed fulfill this thread's purpose. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 23:56, June 25, 2016 (UTC)

Closed - Some version of an infobox for characters who don't appear ingame can be made from scratch or by modifying existing templates. --LiquidTalk 01:51, June 28, 2016 (UTC)
