Summary[edit]

This template creates an infobox for use on all Creature pages. It includes the appropriate bread crumb trails and categories. It can be used on Morrowind, Tribunal, Bloodmoon, Oblivion, and Shivering Isles pages.

Parameters[edit]

Creature Summary
Parameter Scope Description
titlename optional Creature's name as displayed at the top of the infobox. Generally NOT needed; will default to use PAGENAME. Only needed when pagename contains extra information (i.e., disambiguation).
altname optional Creature's name as used in category tags. Generally NOT needed: will default to use PAGENAME. Only needed when the creature's name starts with "The" or "A" to fix the alphabetization of categories.
lorepage optional Name of the relevant Lore page to display below the creature's name. Only the page name itself is required, not the Lore: prefix. Note that this works differently from NPC Summary due to the large number of instances where a lore link would be undesirable.
id required Creature's base FormID (Oblivion) or editor ID in Morrowind. This parameter may be omitted on Morrowind pages if the ID is the same as the titlename or PAGENAME, but in lower-case.
refid optional Creature's reference FormID in Oblivion. Multiple IDs should be separated with a comma outside of Morrowind space. refid and baseid should be used in place of the standard id parameter for any creatures that are unique and therefore have a uniquely defined reference ID.
baseid optional Creature's base FormID in Oblivion. Multiple IDs should be separated with a comma outside of Morrowind space.
refidhover
baseidhover
optional Whether hover text should be used. If so, ID format becomes: id1,hover1,id2,hover2.
mod optional Name of mod that adds creature (if not in baseline version of game).
city optional Creature's "Home City" (formatted as a link to appropriate page).
house optional Name of the "House" where this creature lives (if not a merchant).
loc optional "Location" where creature can be found (if not in a city or in a house)
N.B. generally creatures will have city+house or just loc set. All three of city, house and loc are not intended to be used together but they are provided as redundant options so that an appropriate place-related box can be created for any creature.
species optional Species. If speciescat is not provided species should be a plain word, i.e., not a link. If speciescat is provided, it can be a plain word or a link to the appropriate species page.
speciescat optional Species to be used for page's category: not as a link, singular. Generally not needed: will default to use species. Only needed when creature is a non-standard species without a category. Can be set to "none" to prevent any species category from being added to page.
