The SOABox is a variant on existing character infoboxes made by Antares with an eye towards use for Soldiers of Arachnos. Information on usage/cheat sheet is ripped with minor alterations from Eisregen's original HeroBox. -- AlwaysAPrice

How to use the SOABox

The long and involved process works thusly. If you just want the damn Box, go directly to the Cheat Sheet.

Trigger the use of the SOABox on your page if you plan to include it. At the top of your edit window, enter:


Below that, you'll want to fill out all the parameters that you can fill out or care to fill out. For this, you'll need the name of the parameter that corresponds to the field you'll want to fill; in most cases, the parameter names are the same as the name of the field, but they differ in some. A complete list can be found below. The format for filling in a parameter is as follows:

| parameter = value
| name = Spiderdude

This will replace the {{{name}}} placeholder in the original SOABox with 'Spiderdude'. Each parameter should be put in a new line for ease of parsing and debugging in case something goes wrong.

The last four fields of the SOABox use a smaller font because they're designed for a potentially long list of additions. How you fill the Powers, Abilities and Equipment fields and whether you want to add any footnotes is essentially up to you, but for easiest readability, you'll want to offer single terms that summarize some or all of your character's applicable capabilities there. This could still be a veritable laundry list of things, or it could be as simple as an entry saying 'Pheromone-Based Mind Control' or whatever. Either way, the main body of the page allows sufficient room to expand on things, the SOABo is mostly meant for an at-a-glance summary of the most important character data.

Close the Template. This is done by appending the following at the end of your list:


And with this, you're set.
