Lots of this should be Prop C, but I can't see a way to split the Prop C from the really good Spec: it would break the flow of the "rules"-like nature to have different sections. I suppose the alternative of calling it all Prop C is also adequate, and it might inspire Rob to check it. If he's using the Prop C Category to move things to Canon, he'll never see this page as it is, and none of it will advance. The break out pages do that already, so I'm inclined to leave this as is for the time being. I also don't like some of the ordering. Movement should come after Units, because you should describe what can move before how it moves, but leaving it with the basic world description makes a certain amount of sense, so nto going to do that, either. I might later, if I think of an elegant way to do it.

The page is also getting too large. I think some of the details that are already on the linked specific pages Unit, Movement, etc. can be removed. If I see myself or others continuing to make this larger, I'll probably do something to generalize this and make it less of a one-stop-shopping page.

I got Rob to confirm that he is only looking at the Prop C category for advancement to Canon. That means this page must change or it will never advance. I think I'm going to put it through a major edit, but it may take a couple days. This is the single most important page from a Mechanics perspective. I think I'll crack open a couple rule books and consider reformatting as a serious rule-like information page. Section numbers? This is, however, a holiday week for Canadians, with our July 4th on the 1st as always, so don't hold me to that schedule. I'm outta town for much of it, so I don't know how much time I'll have on the computer. --Kreistor 02:30, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
