Hello again, Philip. I've enjoyed seeing how quickly you have dug right into the wiki. Unfortunately for our preceeding wikians, you seem to have a knack for finding some of the built-in weaknesses which have not yet been resolved.
Your recent addition of Mission: Like Vines is a good case in point. Everything on it looks good, and fits in very nicely. The wiki's template, though, produces links to each npc conversant listed in the code. The redlinks don't show red on the page due to special formatting, but they do show in our wanted pages list, producing needed pages for [[NPC: Aster]], [[NPC: Dahoon]], and [[NPC: Larch]].
That's probably the best middle ground we will be able to find at the moment. I believe I had created a few "NPC" pages for interactive enemies when I was in that position. "Grigor" near Needle Eye comes to mind. It seemed like a more intuitive solution at the time.
There might come a point when we can revisit the situation to rework the underlying templates. At the moment, the wiki has more pressing issues to address...like getting the data entered in the first place. Thanks again! :)
