The Gamer Escape templates are constructed to be as user-friendly as possible, but because of some software limitations there are sometimes some unintuitive fields.

This template is used for all Non-Playable Characters (NPC). This mainly means humanoid characters in-game, however, this template can also be used for inanimate items that the player interacts with (i.e. crates) or non-humanoid characters that are interacted with (i.e. beastmen).

This template should not be used for mobs that are fought.

We've placed the entire item template below and explain each line, explaining what it's for and what data you can enter for it. The template lines are located in the boxes surrounded by the dashed line with the description for it underneath.

Unless otherwise indicated, you do not need to use any wiki coding (i.e. brackets).
