We need to either create a new Catagory: Research Topics, merge or redirect this information with the War skill, or just delete it outright.

I'd be for merging it myself, as per some other skills.

It may effect your decision to know that there are three pages with the appendage "(research topic)".
War (research topic)
Incantation Methods (research topic)
Endurance (research topic)
I suggest we keep the voting to here since at least one person has chipped in.

I think that having a seperate section for all of the Research Topics would be easier for people to access and search topics as needed; but a notation within the skill sections where applicable would be helpful as well. The reason that a seperate section would be helpful is that some of the research topics are unlocked in the game due to events not linked to their skill group making it difficult to search the wiki skills for that particular topic.
We could also merge the research effects into the Research (Action) page
Please sign your comments, it helps to keep them apart. Either type 4x ~ or use the Signiture buttoin in the Insert menu of the editor.

The Research topics are directly related to the skills, and there are probably as many research topics as there are skills.
I think we should just mention it below the skill entry what the Research topic is, what it unlocks and how to get the research topic in the first place.
One side effect would be that perhaps the skill pages are going to get longer and unwieldy, which might result in us needing to make subpages per subskill.

Actualy I think there are more Research Topics then there are skills. These extra topics should be merged with a Research action or skill page. The Skill based Research Topics should be merged with the skills, I think, if you can find an elegant format for it. Perhaps create an extra page that lists Reserch Topics by Parent Skill (so you have Research - Art#Art Appreciation, etc. ), which would allow us to reuse or move this page.
But I don't think we should seperate Sub-Skills, except maybe for indexing purposes. Down that path lies madness.
