  • You've been adding voiceovers for a multitude of cards recently.

    Out of curiosity are any of the voice actors credited?

    Asking as I came across a voice actor credit: https://twitter.com/iheathermasters/status/857254948005793792

    • I haven't added any - I didn't know of any way to find the info. I like the idea though! Maybe you could check with Pusillanimous about adding something to the voiceover template for credits.

  • Hey! First I wanted to thank you for following up on those pages from the reddit discussion. I'll look over it closer this weekend after combing through the thread again, to see if it needs further changes, but thanks for the fast update.

    I've been working on some other card page tweaks, that will hopefully be ready before the new set release, so I wanted to give you a heads up. I'll update this thread as I go, so you may incorporate these changes as you work on the voiceovers:

    • I added a 'Creates' section to the card infoboxes (automatically filled in with existing infobox parameters). I was thinking it should replace the current section - after we moved 'Created By' to under 'How to Get', I thought this looked better than the stranded card images later in the article.
    • For the 'Created By' sections, I'm working on an update to the {{Card}} template which should allow a gallery of multiple images, obsoleting {{Card3}}. That's almost done and should be easy to incorporate.
    • At a more 'macro' view of the wiki, I was thinking we might use a Community page for welcoming/helping new wiki contributors, and a Projects page for organizing some of our larger endeavors. Right now they're mostly copy/pasted from other wikis, so let me know if there's anything you'd like to see added/changed (or if they're even worth having).

    • I just ported the multi-image support over to the main {{Card}} template. In my sandboxed testing it seemed to work fine, but let me know if you run across any errors.

  • Hi pruwyben!

    First off, thanks for all the awesome work you've been doing, especially over the last few days.

    Before you get too much further with the quotes though, I just wanted to throw out this idea: How about we make a dedicated 'Voiceovers' section in the main page itself (outside the infobox).

    I have two main reasons for this:

    • We can note where it comes from (Summon, Ally, other effect, etc) or note alternate quotes (Kaleb) in a way that doesn't feel out of place. (Seeing 'Summon: ' inside the flavor box feels off to me.)
    • We can avoid cluttering up the flavor box. Don't get me wrong, the quotes are a great, and they are an unambiguous source (unlike how the DWD flavor articles can sometimes be). I like using them where we don't have a more interesting alternative. Its just that when there are multiple voiceover quotes, plus additional flavor text (from DWD articles, the campaigns, tooltips, etc.), it can be a bit too much.

    I think the goal of the flavor box is to present the best glimpse into Eternal's lore, as a 'hook' to explore the (hopefully upcoming) Lore articles, more than a repository for all the flavor sources.

    That's just my personal opinion, and I'm interested to hear what you think. I'll let Yumyum know about this message too, in case he wants to chime in.

    However we decide to do this, we can add it to the Style Guide. If we do add the quotes to an article section, I'd be happy to help you come up with templates for the layout.

    • Hi Guys,

      FYI, I am going to keep moving voiceovers out of the infobox just to get these cleaned up, but I'll avoid doing too many other updates until we have a game plan.

      I don't have any strong preference as far as handling of Created By/How to Get.

    • Hey, for now let's go with the following ordering:

      • Intro sentence (This card is a X)
      • How to Get
        • Created By (Sub-section of How to Get)
      • Voiceovers
      • Strategy
      • Creates (token cards)
      • Notes
      • Gallery
      • History
      • References

      So basically do what you've been doing, being sure to place the voiceovers below "How to Get" and above "Strategy".

      If the page has a "Created By" section, feel free to move it under "How to Get", as a subsection (header 3 instead of 2). I just moved it for Secret Pages as an example. Leave "Creates" as-is for now, we may move it or work into the infobox later but its fine for now.

      That should work for now, let us know if any other issues pop up. I'll post again if we need to revisit this, and I'll leave an update here when this has been added to the Style Guide. Thanks for all the hard work and input!
