Generic Role-playing Independent Player Environments System
The GRIPES wiki
GRIPES is organized around its language structure.
Actual components of play are tagged as People, Places, or Things and the activities of components are tagged as Actions.
Very broad, abstract concepts like religion or economics are tagged as Universals where a number of possibilities can apply to a specific situation.
Where an abstract subject is applied generally to the set of possibilities in game terms, like time or a given statistic, it’s tagged as a Mechanic.
General examples use the Earth and objective Universe (as much as possible) as the contextual setting while specific campaign examples reference the game-world they demonstrate.
Creating a new page
To create a new page, just make a name and surround it with double square brackets like so: A New Page. When you save the page, the link will show up and you can click on it to create the new page.
Linking to existing pages
To link to existing pages, use the same double square brackets. For example, here’s a link to this page: Main Page
Linking to a page with different text
If you don’t want to use the page’s name as the link text, you can specify your own text by placing a vertical bar | and the link text in the link like so: Linking with different text
Linking to characters
For PCs and NPCs in your campaign, the easiest thing is to use the PC/NPC Link Lookup in the sidebar to the right. It’s quite handy! Otherwise, the links behave much like a wiki link, just with a colon at the start.
HTML and Textile
To style things how you want, you can use either HTML (with some restrictions) or a simple formatting language called Textile. It’s up to you, but Textile is pretty easy, while simultaneously allowing for lots of customization.
