Template Text

  • Copy the text from the block below.
  • Create the new page for your companion.
  • Paste the text into the page and fill out per the instructions below.
  • Hit save. You're done.

The page will auto-categorize based upon your entries so don't add categories to the bottom. Because of the autocategorization, if the instructions specify that spelling is important ... it really is. ;-)


Instructions for Use

In all cases, if you don't have any information for one of the entries, leave it blank. The template will treat it properly.

  • Name_of_Creature: This should be pretty obvious, and should never be blank, or why would you be creating a page? Some examples would be Avlissian Jaguar, Dire Tiger or Flying Purple People Eater.
  • CTS_Code: The CTS Code number for the animal if known.
  • Companion_Submission_Status This is used to clarify the research statu, both for you and for the team/subcontractor members who will review your submission and potentially allow the animal to be trainable. Write "researching" as you are preparing the page. When you are ready to submit for review, replace with "submitted" (note: the "" are not needed). You should see a category listing at the bottom of the page the appropriate status. Please do not alter this value if it is being reviewed or has been accepted. Spelling counts!
  • Type_of_Creature: You must use one of the types off of the Fauna Lore page. Valid entries are all of the subtypes of Animal as well as Beast or Magical Beast. If you don't know, leave it blank. Spelling counts!
  • Author: This should always be filled in with your character name. As a courtesy, link it to your board profile in case the Team needs to PM you. See the example below for the correct syntax to link to the profile.
  • Image: Completely optional. If you have a screenie, put it up. The template will limit the picture to a maximum of 400 pixels wide, so no reason to upload something huge.
  • Most_Compatible_Fylgia: The most compatible fylgia for this creature from the list on the Fylgia page. Spelling counts!
  • Most_Compatible_Notes: Any special notes on why this particular fylgia is best.
  • Least_Compatible_Fylgia: The least compatible fylgia.
  • Least_Compatible_Notes: Any special notes on why this particular fylgia is the worst.
  • Introduction: Your introduction to the companion.
  • Feeding_Habits: Obvious.
  • Disposition_Social_Habits: Disposition and social habits.
  • Habitat: Obvious.
  • Other_Notes: Any other notes that you feel compelled to include.


This example is from the page Celestial Bison. Notice that you don't have to fit your entry onto just one line. You can use multiple lines and include much of the wiki formatting for each entry if you wish. See the Introduction entry below.

|Name_of_Creature= Celestial Bison
|CTS_Code= 1015
|Companion_Submission_Status= submitted
|Type_of_Creature= Bovine
|Author= [http://wiki.avlis.org/PCs:Cairn_Mosslel Cairn Mosslel], ranger of [http://wiki.avlis.org/Guild:ANRA ANRA]

|Most_Compatible_Fylgia= Dire Boar
|Most_Compatible_Notes= Dire boar is most suitable due to its strength and determination.
|Least_Compatible_Fylgia= Hawk
|Introduction= The Celestial Bison is a docile creature when observed calmly grazing from a distance.  When worked 
to a frenzy, few creatures (or inanimate objects for that matter) can hamper its momentum.  The bison is a cow-ish 
creature: brown thick hair with a large elongated head and horns.   The front half of the bison is massive in 
stature and girth. Physically, it is vaguely reminiscent of the minotaur. It is unknown if the bison has natural 
origins on Avlis, but if it did, I suppose one might look for it in the grasslands of nations such as Kurathene, 
Toran Sharda, Dubanat, and Brekon .  The bison studied by this author is one that was summoned from another plane
(Celestial).  It is quite trainable and receptive to a druid or ranger befriending it.

Physically, the bison's outstanding characteristics are its strength and endurance.  Offensive momentum is the 
animals best fighting tactic, lowering its huge head, large horns and thick neck and plowing through its foe.  
It travels well, able to trot along for long distances without need of food and water.
|Feeding_Habits= From observation, the bison is a herbivore grazer. Grasses (in copious amounts) are its favored food.
|Disposition_Social_Habits= The bison appears to be quite social, and will work with its trainer. The author suspects 
it would travel in herds, if there were a number of them.  Its mating habits and other habits are relatively unknown.
|Habitat= Grassy plains.
