See also RuneScape:Style guide for the general article style guide to this website.

This Store style guide is an attempt to standardise the information about NPC stores found in the game RuneScape. This is intended to be a guideline only, and not any form of a set policy that absolutely must be adhered to at all time.

If at any time you are working on a part of the wiki and you think something might come across better if it were presented in another fashion, remember to ignore this and all other rules. On the other hand, this document is intended to put together a "best practices" approach to show what the highest standard for documenting stores should be looking like.
