the next two sections aren't comprehensive. You can use "options->backlinks" at the bottom of the page to see where else tales of terrors are found in the game. I did not go through hunters keep, item dependent cards, carnival rose, flit actions b, or watchful cards. The following was intended as an example of how you could connect pages with each other more thoroughly, and was done with an eye for detail but not for aesthetics. If you'd like to do similar work for other pages, don't feel constrained by this format. Even a much simpler version of these sections would add a lot more navigable information to the wiki.
