EWoT link parameters

There are two EWoT link parameters that are used in this template. Only one needs to be used, either "type" or "elephants." Do not use both.

The "type" parameter is used for all animals except s'redit. For this parameter, the word in quotation marks in the list below is what needs to be in the "type" field. When using this parameter, do not use the "elephants" parameter.

  • A horse = "horses"
  • A wolf = "wolves"
  • A lopar = "pet"s
  • A cat = "pets"
  • A wolfhound = "pets"
  • A Trolloc = "trollocs"

The "elephants" parameter is only used for s'redit. What is typed into the parameter field does not mater (e.g. "elephants=yes" and "elephants=no" will both work). When using this parameter, do not use the "type" parameter.
