For help with standard Wikidot code, see:

General Code

Most templates come with the necessary code already in place. This space is for documentation of the some of the less obvious options.


If no icon exists to display in a RelationshipBox, fill in the page field as follows. (Note: This replaces the old variant, RelationshipBoxNoImage.)

| page=no-image

You can add the hasNopage field (as below) to prevent the box from linking anywhere. It will still look for an icon to match the page field, so make sure said icon exists on the appropriate icons page. (Note: This replaces the old variant, RelationshipBoxLocal.)

| hasNoPage=-

Savage Worlds Code

Edges and Hindrances

To add a given Hindrance or Edge, use the following:

 [[include savage-worlds:hindrance-name-of-hindrance]]

 [[include savage-worlds:edge-name-of-edge]]

Sometimes, the code will call for additional variables, like so:

 [[include savage-worlds:hindrance-Pacifist | type=Minor]]

 [[include savage-worlds:edge-New-Power | detail1=succor]]

Hindrances that can be Major or Minor will always need their type specified. Edges and Hindrances that have individualized details that need to be filled in will have detail# fields, where # is the sequential number in the series of details for that Edge or Hindrance (which rarely exceeds 1).

Remember: If your Edge or Hindrance is specific to a given setting, the category will not be savage-worlds, but the category for that setting instead (e.g. rifts:edge-master-of-magic).

If you come across a Hindrance and the Type column is blank when rendered, it is because of a new method being used to indicate Minor or Major. In this case, instead of a type field, add one of the following:

| minor=-
| major=-

Freeform Edges and Hindrances

If your Edge or Hindrance doesn't exist on the wiki yet, or you just want a more personalized description of it, use the following format:

 [[include savage-worlds:option | option= | type= | description=]]

Special Cases

If using the Sanity rules from the Horror Companion, add the following variable:

Hindrance: Outsider

Due to the Major version of the Hindrance in the Science Fiction Companion, this Hindrance must now be specified as Minor or Major.

Edge: Familiar

If you take this Edge multiple times to gain additional familiar powers, using the following variables to display those powers:

| increaseAttribute=-
| familiarSenses=-
| combatEdges=-
| selfCast=-
| powerPoints=-

Edge: One of the Chosen

This Edge from the Horror Companion requires one of the following variables (offensive or defensive), depending on your choice when taking it. If you take both versions of the Edge, simply add both of the variables.
