Want it to look like this

Problems:

  • I want to make it include different games with different numbers of characters. So I need to find a way to generate tables as rectangles dynamically based on the number of characters? Or is that too much?
  • Needs to navigate to the right page, just doing link=#character works but might have issues on edge cases? May need to figure out how magicwords work. https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Magic_words#URL_data
  • Table might need some light styling. Get rid of cell borders?
