- What are the ''---'' lines? Within the tree?
- How to read the duplicates of names in the tree? It is a little bit confusing.
- Is it possible to create a timeline in it? Because most trees I have seen, have a timeline to compare other names in the tree.
Not sure if such a thing is possible but, I also wanted to ask if it is possible to add this scheme of Edan to the website in the far .. far.. future, because I really like it. Would be a asset to the temple in my eyes..

You can see the ---- lines going from the line joining Alexandre and Proteus, to Brenna.
When Brenna completed her knighthood she was an apprentice of Jestor's, hence why she is shown with Jestor's apprentices.
However, previously Brenna studied under Alexandre, so the --- indicates a link to a different portion of the tree, in this case, to Alexandre's other apprentices.
Where knights appear in purple, and therefore more than once on the tree, this is where it became too fiddly (and sometimes impossible) to show all connections from one place. By putting them in purple it tells you that this person features elsewhere in the tree and that they were a former teacher of the person to which their purple name is attached. So in the example I've attached you can see that V-Tog was a former master of tzb, but that she appears elsewhere in the tree under her own master.
A timeline unfortunately is basically impossible the way I have created the tree because it was very difficult to get everything to fit in the first place. I had to move a lot of different bits of the tree to make it work. I have been adding the dates of knighthood and apprenticeship as comments to individuals though. In order to timeline the tree would have to be split I think, but then I'm not sure you would be able to see all the connections between people. I would have to rework the entire tree and I'm not willing to do that at the moment though I will consider it for the future.
Thank you for explaining the system, it is a little bit more easy now to understand it. Was searching around the file not knowing where to look Maybe a small idea to add your words about the ''--'' lines to the legenda, because I could not find it there.
Thank you, force shine with you!

This is good information and it is appreciated. I'll take a closer look soon. Glad there's a record of such things, very interesting.

Therefore, for now, I have changed the settings to 'Comment Only' so that anyone viewing the tree can see the dates.

So a quick heads-up that Edan's awesome Heritage Tree should now be up to date Please PM me if you see any mistakes or want to make any date additions etc. This is still very much Edan's puppy, I'm just taking it for walks whilst she is at work
