Second the sticky....again..... We need a resource like this in an easy to reach place. Yes the templates exist, but this conversation is good, and the tables are very helpful. Something I did notice: the color tag (for text) does accept hexcodes. That's the sort of thing I want in a sticky, a comprehensive guide to the homebrewing. I'll work on adjusting my guide to include this, and some hints on balance and stuff.
So question on the colors for these templates. When I made the original templates, I used colors as a sort of code, each thing had its own color, with reds being classes, and dark colors being spells/feats/maneuvers/etc. I primarily made them this way because there are lots of different types of small abilities and there were more dark colors that looked good (also soulmelds ended up being straight blue, so that's a plus....). So haveyou thought about that at all? Anyone.
