If this Minigame has objectives, and they all do, use the FR Objectives template under the Quest template. Objectives may be repeated if there is more than one difficulty level.

membersonly=

If not blank, this minigame is only available to members.
startobject=, startertype=, type, style=
see table, below.
place=
Use this ONLY if this game can only be started at ONE place!
job=
If this minigame is for a specific job, such as Miner for a Silver Mining Ore game, put the job name here. This will cause a FR JobTag to display in the right-hand column.
difficulty=
one of: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or Table. If table, difficulty is defined in the FR Objectives template. X will suppress difficulty.
description=
put the description exactly as it appears in-game on the game starter dialog box. IF the startobject is Forge or Smelting Furnace, a default description is provided but may be overridden.
prizewheel=
Used only so that we can flag pages to Category:Minigames without Prize Wheel (FR)
relquests=
(LIST, OPTIONAL) This is a list of Related Quests that take place in this Battle. This should be a bulleted list, using # or * notation, and should start on the line following the |relquests= so that it formats correctly.

startobject=, startertype=, type, style=

My understanding of this has gone through several different stages, and these 4 fields have come to have VERY specific meanings depending on each other... I will try to explain this.

GameFieldsMeaning
Timed Minigames (for quests)
  • startobject=X
  • startertype=
  • type=Timed
  • style=
This does not include any automatic text for starter, and expects you to explain how to start it and pretty much everything else, after the template!
Mail Delivery Games
  • startobject=Mailbox
  • startertype=
  • type=Mail Delivery
  • style=
Mail Delivery Games are very specific. You can not start a specific game at any of several different starters, but only at one, so you have to describe the starter in the text after the template.
Crafting
  • startobject=Bushel, Cooking Table, Mining Node, Smelting Furnace or Forge
  • startertype=Bushel, Table, Ore, Furnace or Forge
  • type=Crafting
  • style=Matching or Making
  • place=name of the farm, town, or mine
These are all very specific and I have defined them already. any new ones should be able to use the existing pages as a guide.
Board Games These include Checkers, Chess, and the Tower Defense games.
Racing
Trading Card Game
  • type=Trading Card Game

The template looks for an icon in [[startobject' (FR startertype Icon)]]. See Category:Icons.

Additionally, the Minigame page is checked for an associated image. If there is not one, it then checks the startobject page to see if there is a second image there. The first image is how the object looks in-world and is displayed on the Starter category page, the second image is the Minigame screen.
