The varying archetypes, schticks, and rules on this page and
its subindexes are not in any way official. I make no promises
as to balance, although I've screened out anything that looked
awfully odd. Be aware that many of the archetypes, while fully
interesting, are really more character types than archetypes --
they could often be done with the existing archetypes, albeit
without the nifty schticks.
Links leading to subindexes are in bold.
