Quote 4.---Source 4[4]

Functional Yet Cumbersome

  • Would be messy to pass the configuration parameters into each <option>.  Every time a user adds a new quotation to a page, ze'd need to paste the quotations into the QUOTE and SOURCE areas:
      <option>{{quotebox|QUOTE|SOURCE|page={{{page|}}} |quote={{{quote|}}} |source={{{source|}}} |align={{{align|}}} |width={{{width|}}} |hidequotes={{{hidequotes|}}} |format-area={{{format-area|}}} |format-box={{{format-box|}}} |format-quote={{{format-quote|}}} |format-source={{{format-source|}}}}} |edit={{{edit|}}}</option>
  • {{ep ref}} works well, though, as does everything else.
  • This section and the example immediately below are intended to test the <choose> tag for randomly selecting one of the listed quotations and displaying it in the {{quotebox}}.  It is not intended to demonstrate the format of the quotation, and there are actually several formatting variations of the same quotation in rotation here.


Have you heard the legend of Shale?
One eye, elderly, frail.
To a black dragon, she told,
"You may be ancient, but I'm old!"
And somehow lived to tell the tale.

Side-by-Side Comparisons

The boxes here show a side-by-side comparison of two different potential formats for dialogue boxes, plus a third box with the decorative quotation marks hidden.  Although the table version is fine at normal size and width, it is clearly inferior to the {{quote multi}} (which should probably be renamed to {{quote dialogue}}) when viewed as a sidebar or wall-of-text relief:

Matthew Mercer: "One of the highest of the order of the Raven Queen, that fought in her name, [...] was named Purvan—"
Laura Bailey: "Haha, yeah he was!"
Marisha Ray: "Perv'on?"
Matt: "Purvan!  P-U-R-V-A-N!"
Sam Riegel: "Last name:  Pedobear!"
Taliesin Jaffe: "We're running out of good names, aren't we?  We've finally gotten to the end of your list of good names."
Travis Willingham: [laughing]  "Perv'on Pedobear, haha!"
Matt: "Ohhh, you guys are cruisin' to a TPK today!"
Laura: "Not on the anniversary, Matt!  Not on the anniversary!"
Matt: "Yeah, this is great."
Travis: "Haha, Perv'on Pedobear!"
Mary Elizabeth McGlynn: "Kash and Z were left, staring at the bodies..."
Matt: "Purvan!  For the second—"
Liam O'Brien: "Yes, yes, get your perv on!  Emphatically!"
Matt: "Oh, alright, that's—that's—that's—"
Taliesin: "Perv on, Matt."
Travis: [laughing]  "I can't breathe!"
Matt: [writing notes]  "—more hit points onto these guys..."
