Hey guys, I'm currently working on the page for Lancing, and there's a couple of things I wanted to ask.

 

First, Lancing is a magic system, but is non-Cosmere. What info-box should I use? I normally try to look at other similar pages, but most of the magic pages are Cosmere, and the template clearly indicates that (with Shardic influence, focus, and typing). I'm currently going to use it and omit all the Cosmere sections (like Rithmatist), but let me know if there is another template I should be using, or if there are sections to the template I am unawares of.

 

Second, the Perfect State footer infobox should have Lancesight replaced with Lancing. I've mentioned this before, but then got busy and neglected my quest to finish the Perfect State articles, so it escaped my mind. To reiterate my previous arguments, I felt, upon reading the Novella, that "Lancing" was the magic system, and "Lancesight" was a feature within that system. This is similar to seeing blue lines when burning iron/steel in Allomancy.

 

If you were merely waiting for the page to exist before making the change, my apologies for beating the dead horse. The page should be up and running today  :)

 

P.S. - As a side note unrelated to Lancing, it would be nice if the template pages listed all the potential sections that are usable. Just a thought.

No apologies needed, thanks for bringing this up again and we look forward to seeing your article. Feel free to tweak the navbox link yourself.

 

Many of the templates have some documentation but yeah I think we all agree that the general documentation of everything is kinda lacking, so we're getting around to it. Similarly the magic template I have no particular suggestions other than to maybe get it moved to a different name and free up magic as a general template for other magic systems, or something. For now it sounds like you're doing a good job of coping without it which is great :D

I believe the cosmere sections should be optional on that template, so it should work okay. For most of the templates, you do not need to include all the parameters.

I am also totally good with changing it to Lancing, as that does indeed seem like the more proper term.

Thanks for the help :D
