General Formatting Guidelines

Please format the wiki parts according to these guidelines. If you don't, oh well. You'll just be making more work for someone (probably Lynkfox) to fix it xD

  • Remember to use Categories for new pages.
  • Name all images full names, with no spaces if possible.
  • Preference to .png for Images, not required.
  • Remember to close your Bold and Italic tags (The wiki closes them automatically if you make new lines, but that can cause problems later on. Please always have both sides of your bold and italic tags).

Template Use

  • Character Template - Use for any character, hero, villain, otherwise. Remember to change out Complexity for Difficulty if its a villain deck (not necessarily for Sentinel Tactics characters)
  • Reference Template - Generic Reference page. Remember to replace the edit link with the right page. Reference pages should always be named: Page/References
  • Environment Template - For use on environments.
  • Template:Group - For use on Groups.
  • Template:Edition - for use for new box sets, including RPG books, Sentinel Tactics, and beyond.

Deck List Formatting

Please format the deck lists to the following example

Only link the Keywords to the Glossary page if they are: Limited, One-Shot, Ongoing, Equipment, Relic, Device. All other Keywords leave unlinked.

Click on the Edit link right above here to see what the wiki syntax is for this formatting


Title of Card [HP] (x number of card)
What the card does
Power: Power printed in card
Art: Artwork description
Flavor-Text: Text - Who, Where



Frost-Bound Drain (x3)
Absolute Zero deals 1 non-Hero Target 3 Cold Damage. Absolute Zero deals himself 3 Fire Damage.
Art: A frozen Char behind Absolute Zero
Flavor-text: "Too cold? Welcome to my life." - Absolute Zero, The Ice-Man Cometh #7

See Captain Cosmic for an example.

Cards with Powers, specific Formatting

If a card has a power, it has a slightly different formatting setup, just to keep thing clean.

Card Name
Text in card before power
Power: Power text
Text in card after power

For example, for Captain Cosmic

Cosmic Weapon [4] (x3)
Play this card next to a hero character card. That hero gains the following power:
Power: This hero deals 1 target 3 energy damage.
Art: PW Fanatic wielding a golden blade;
Flavor-text: "This temporary blade will last longer than the foes we face!" - Fanatic, Prime Wardens #41

Sentinel Tactics Power Cards

Action: - The Text
{{TacticsHit|die=three|one=miss|six=miss}} Tactics Hit Die Chart
Art: Art Description
Flavor-Text: Flavor Text

View Template:TacticsHit for instructions on how to use the template

For Example, Absolute Zero

Impaling Structure
Action: Place three impaling structure markers in adjacent hexes on the map, one of which must be within radius 1 of Absolute Zero. Impaling Structure markers raise a hex's elevation by 1 and generate hazard spaces. Hazard. Attack Radius 0.


Art: Absolute Zero Impaling Omnitron-V with ice structure;
Flavor-Text: "BRRRZZZZZT! Tertiary ocular input feed lost terrain unpredictably hazardous" - Omnitron-V, Freedom Five #16

Incapacitated Powers Formatting

  • The words go here.

Capitalize the following:

  • Card
  • Deck
  • Draw
  • Element type, like Cold, Toxic, ect, and the Damage that follows it (e.g. Cold Damage)
  • Environment
  • Hero
  • Limited
  • Ongoing
  • One-Shot
  • Player
  • Power
  • Target
  • Villain

Always end with a period (.)

Do not capitalize now, start of turn, played, deals, next turn, end of turn.

Innate Power Formatting

Name of Power - Power


Pilot Light - Absolute Zero deals himself 2 Fire Damage. If he takes damage this way, search your deck for an Ongoing Card, and put it into play. Shuffle your Deck

Same Capitalization rules as Incapacitated Formatting

Reference Formatting

Art References

  • These references are for what various pieces of art in a particular deck or cards refer to other, in game cards, characters, events, or decks. So if you see a character on a card in Absolute Zero's deck, and you know who that character is, put it here.
  • This does NOT include art references to real world inspirations. Those go in the final section


  • These are for what could be true, that the community has come up with as generally accepted, but has not yet had a stamp of approval either from one of >G members, or from actual card proof.


  • Put here any facts that have been confirmed by >G members, with a link if possible to the post/podcast/article/whatever. Hearsay from the mouth of >G Members is OK to put here, because they don't say anything they don't want revealed, and can always deny it if it's not true.


  • This section is for real world (ie, our real comics of Marvel and DC and others) that the characters are drawn from. Any connection to Real world, either in the art, the backstory, or the events should be placed here.

Category Order

Categories should be ordered in the following order

Hero/Villain/Environment, SotM Edition, Sentinel Tactics, Sentinel Tactics Edition, Any Groups, either member or enemy of, Other
