Character Template

Information
Welcome to our Character Template. Please feel free to copy and paste this template to create your own character page in the Characters area. You can delete optional lines from the Character Infobox (If you look at the page you can also see how to recolour it to your taste. There is also a Character Infobox 2 for a more sleek look.

Summary
[noinclude][H="2"]Using this template[/H]
See the examples below. Some use custom colours and the first the defaults. The first example uses all available values, whilst the second does not use the optional fields

To use these templates in your own biography, take the code of one of the examples below. All you have to do is change the variables to suit your own character.

For example change:

| Name=Bob Smith
to
| Name=You Name Here

The colours are determined by the following variables. You can see an example below.

| Border=[COLOR=#666600]666600[/COLOR]
| Fontcolor2=[COLOR=#FFFFFF]FFFFFF[/COLOR]
| Fontcolor=[COLOR=#db4a34]db4a34[/COLOR]
| Primary=[COLOR=#2c2c2d]2c2c2d[/COLOR]
| Secondary=[COLOR=#872215]872215[/COLOR]

[LIST]
[*]Fontcolor: The colour of the font on the left
[*]Fontcolor2: The color of the font on the right
[*]Primary: the background color on the left
[*]Secondary: the background color on the right.
[*]Border: The heavy borders between sections
[/LIST]
This would lead to a style like this:

[table] cellpadding="4"; style="background: #2c2c2d; border: 0px; width: 100%; max-width: 350px"
|-
| colspan="2" style="border-top: 2px solid #666600; border-bottom: 2px solid #666600; text-align:center" | [B]Name[/B]
|-
| style="color: #db4a34" | Age
| style="background: #872215; color:#FFFFFF" | 47
[/table]

Putting all of this into a template significantly saves on the time it would take to style a table over and over for different characters. It also creates a similar theme across the Wiki. Using an infobox really is as simple as:
[LIST=1]
[*]Copy the code
[*]Enter the mandatory fields
[*](optional) Enter the optional fields
[*](optional) Choose custom colours
[/LIST]

If you want to create your own Infoboxes:
[LIST=1]
[*]Head to the [wiki]Template-sandbox[/wiki] Area
[*]Create a new template and use the "Sandbox" Prefix
[*]Copy an existing infobox
[*]Change the styling and variables
[*]Create a new page in the sandbox (remember the prefix again)
[*]Make an example page that uses this template
[*]Tweak the settings until you are happy and then create the template in the [wiki]Templates[/wiki] Area without the sandbox prefix

Notes:


Place of Birth: [Where was your character born, Earth, Mars, or somewhere on the Belt? Keep in mind that this will heavily affect your characters background and although each world has varying economic classes, every place in the solar system has its unique quirks that will affect the traits of your character and their limitations. For information on those effects, look at Earth, Mars, and The Belt)
Faction Affiliation: [Just because you were born somewhere doesn’t mean you’re loyal to it. Which of the Solar Systems factions does your character hold their Allegiance to? If you're more the lone wolf time simply put “independent”]
Home: [The solar system is a big place and travel can be both expensive and difficult. Where can your character generally be found?]

Skills
Everyone in the galaxy is good at something, whether it’s flying, fighting, shooting, or fixing old junkers. What are your characters major skills?(Please limit to two initial choices)

Traits
The effects of the various inhabitable places of the solar system can be cruel at times. Whether you're from the richest districts of Earth or the Poorest station on the Belt, you'll encounter some difficulty because of it. What debilitation does your character hold due to their origin? For ideas of what those could be, look at Earth, Mars, and The Belt)

Personality
What is your character's personality? Are they mean? Charismatic? Rude?

Biography
What is your characters background? Are they a former United Nations Marine gone rogue? An OPA radical who's attempting to bring about change due to an unfortunate event in their past? Your background can be as rich or as mysterious as you want it to be, but must contain elements of the board general story which can be found here.
