Stuff I want to keep an eye on:

ToC

For controlling the Table of Contents (ToC):

  • Use __NOTOC__ to suppress displaying the ToC.
  • Use __FORCETOC__ to mandate displaying the ToC (and to control its vertical placement).
  • Use {{TOCright}} to move the ToC over to the right.

Sloops per Rename

When considering whether or not to rename a ship, I find it useful to ask myself, "For the cost of renaming this one ship, how many sloops could I rename instead, at the same price?"...

Rename Costs Expressed in Sloop-Units
Type of Ship Cost in RMs Equiv. # Sloops
  (Sloop), Cutter, Dhow, Fanchuan 6 (18) 1.0
  Longship 9 (27) 1.5
  Merchant Brig, Baghlah, Junk, War Brig   12 (36) 2.0
  Xebec 15 (45) 2.5
  Merchant Galleon, War Frigate 18 (54) 3.0
  Grand Frigate 24 (72) 4.0
