Broader?

While there is a specific item named this shouldn’t this page include all helmets of this style like the crescent helmet, heavy korinthian helmet, etc? That seems to be what we are doing with weapons like the katanas. Lacrossedeamon (talk) 10:22, May 26, 2020 (UTC)

Although maybe an article titled Korinthian-style helmet would be better to address the many iterations of the type. That wouldn’t be consistent with weapon pages though. Lacrossedeamon (talk) 11:45, May 26, 2020 (UTC)
Yes for your first question, no for your second question. Just call it Korinthian helmet. If it's an actual term for the helmet style, there's no reason to convolute it. Sol Pacificus(Cyfiero) 13:32, May 26, 2020 (UTC)
It seems weird to me that a gear piece like Crescent Helmet will get its own page and also be mentioned here while the specific gear piece Korinthian Helmet won’t get it own page but have to share with the aforementioned helmet and others. Lacrossedeamon (talk) 14:57, May 26, 2020 (UTC)
No, this specific Korinthian Helmet gets its own page, and there will be another page for Korinthian helmets in general. I know it's confusing, and it doesn't seem like you've gotten the hang of our method of organizing weapon pages yet, but rest assured, our policy already accounts for the precise problem you've just raised.

Okay then yeah I completely misunderstood because from Soranin's post it sounded like weapons of the same type were going to lose their specific pages to be merged into an overarching article. So to be clear, while we have the Katana page to cover the weapon type we should also be creating Katana (Unity) and Katana and Wakizashi pages to cover those specific iterations of the weapon type? Or am I still misunderstanding this? If we should only be talking about this specific item on this page and not variations of the model then my edit to mention the helmets used in Egypt should probably be reserved for the general article.

Yes, we should also have a pages on Katana (Unity) and the katana from Rogue as well. It makes perfect sense though if it was the katana article that threw you off. You see, back in the day, I was undecided if we needed to have separate pages on specific iterations of a weapon type if there were only 2 or even just 1 specific iteration of the weapon. So in that rare situation, I didn't take the initiative to create pages on the specific iterations.
For the Katana and Wakizashi though, I had actually wondered before if Rogue's weapons should be written about as pairs of weapons since the katana and wakizashi, from an in-universe standpoint, are two weapons, not one. One of the reasons why this question came up for me is because it looks like in a lot of cases, the off-hand weapon is just a parrying dagger even if the name of the main-hand weapon is pluralized. Sol Pacificus(Cyfiero) 22:40, May 26, 2020 (UTC)
For the Katana and Wakizashi though shouldn’t they be treated as a singular unit, a Daisho, even if that term doesn’t necessarily get used. Also if it matters the other weapons in Rogue are just referred to in the singular not pluralized iirc. But glad to have cleared up the issue surrounding general and specific gear pages. 23:03, May 26, 2020 (UTC)
Edit: on that note should we add a conjectural Parrying dagger for Shay's off-hand weapons? Lacrossedeamon (talk) 23:07, May 26, 2020 (UTC)

Sorry to interrupt but just to remind you that a broader harpe article might also be needed. Nanomat (talk) 23:49, May 26, 2020 (UTC)
