I question some of the divisions made.

For example, Spacer's Choice is a brand. The corporation it belongs to is Universal Defense Logistics (UDL). Does other UDL stuff go on a separate page?

It also leads to weirdness. Like, does everyone from Stellar Point gets lumped into Monarch?

Right now it's based on the Major Factions and Minor Factions, as far as I can tell, but some major factions are actually fairly minor, some minor factions are pretty much afterthoughts (C&P, for example), and there's a lot of independents worth mentioning. So I agree it's kind of a weird mess. Here's my suggestion: The PC, Ada, and crew members get their own folder, as now. Other characters are sorted by their most prominent location: Groundbreaker, Monarch, Terra-2, Byzantium (which is on Terra-2 but distinct enough in culture and feel, and has enough major spoiler-y players, to justify a distinction), and Other (Phineas Welles, lightly populated Scylla, et cetera). Redirects for characters who join the crew are put in the pages for their original locations. Though he's never encountered there, it would also makes sense to put Chairman Rockwell in "Byzantium" with the rest of the Board's movers and shakers. Anyone watching this page approve, disapprove, want to comment?

I approve. Just finished the game yesterday so I hadn't read this until now, but yeah, TOW isn't quite up to FNV levels of factionalization, where characters notably interact with their fellow faction members and occasionally move from one settlement to another. Here, with the various landing pads each being sort of their own mini-Wasteland, sorting them by location does seem the most convenient/consistent/logical.

Yeah I agree with Killerclowns' suggestion

Isn't it a little early for a lot of these folders? Much less to start splitting them into their own pages. Some of them only have one trope or less.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
