New Characters, Places & Groups
Moving forward, all new characters, places, and group IDs must be documented (events are exempt). They should appear in the same format as within the XML (i.e. abas_3 not simply Abas), and should include a brief description to avoid confusion or conflation. Please use this post for documenting any new additions as they become apparent.
