Template:Quest Header

Due to the sensitive nature of this template and the fact that it is used on a large number of pages, it has been semi-protected to prevent site-wide damage by vandal bots.
Editors: In order to minimize the impact on our servers, please use sandboxes to make and test changes to widely used templates before deployment.

This template displays an informative table about a given quest and should be applied at the top of all quests pages.


Previously, some parameters were lower-case while others were mixed-case. These have all been switched to lower-case, although the mixed-case parameters will continue to work normally. For consistency, lower-case is preferred, since that's what's in use for most templates.
