What this is

A bunch of miscellaneous CSS 'improvements' that I, CroquemboucheCroquembouche, use on a bunch of pages because I think it makes them easier to deal with.

The changes this component makes are bunch of really trivial modifications to ease the writing experience and to make documenting components/themes a bit easier (which I do a lot). It doesn't change anything about the page visually for the reader — the changes are for the writer.

I wouldn't expect translations of articles that use this component to also use this component, unless the translator likes it and would want to use it anyway.

This component probably won't conflict with other components or themes, and even if it does, it probably won't matter too much.


On any wiki:

[[include :scp-wiki:component:croqstyle]]

This component is designed to be used on other components. When using on another component, be sure to add this inside the component's [[iftags]] block, so that users of your component are not forced into also using Croqstyle.

CSS changes

Reasonably-sized footnotes

Stops footnotes from being a million miles wide, so that you can actually read them.

.hovertip { max-width: 400px; }

Monospace edit/code

Makes the edit textbox monospace, and also changes all monospace text to Fira Code, the obviously superior monospace font.

@import url(';700&display=swap');
:root { --mono-font: "Fira Code", Cousine, monospace; }
#edit-page-textarea, .code pre, .code p, .code, tt, .page-source { font-family: var(--mono-font); }
.code pre * { white-space: pre; }
.code *, .pre * { font-feature-settings: unset; }

Teletype backgrounds

Adds a light grey background to <tt> elements ({{text}}), so code snippets stand out more.

tt {
  background-color: var(--swatch-something-bhl-idk-will-fix-later, #f4f4f4);
  font-size: 85%;
  padding: 0.2em 0.4em;
  margin: 0;
  border-radius: 6px;

No more bigfaces

Stops big pictures from appearing when you hover over someone's avatar image, because they're stupid and really annoying and you can just click on them if you want to see the big version.

.avatar-hover { display: none !important; }

Breaky breaky

Any text inside a div with class nobreak has line-wrapping happen between every letter.

.nobreak { word-break: break-all; }

Code colours

Add my terminal's code colours as variables. Maybe I'll change this to a more common terminal theme like Monokai or something at some point, but for now it's just my personal theme, which is derived from Tomorrow Night Eighties.

Also, adding the .terminal class to a fake code block as [[div class="code terminal"]] gives it a sort of pseudo-terminal look with a dark background. Doesn't work with [[code]], because Wikidot inserts a bunch of syntax highlighting that you can't change yourself without a bunch of CSS. Use it for non-[[code]] code snippets only.

Quick tool to colourise a 'standard' Wikidot component usage example with the above vars: link

:root {
  --c-bg: #393939;
  --c-syntax: #e0e0e0;
  --c-comment: #999999;
  --c-error: #f2777a;
  --c-value: #f99157;
  --c-symbol: #ffcc66;
  --c-string: #99cc99;
  --c-operator: #66cccc;
  --c-builtin: #70a7df;
  --c-keyword: #cc99cc;
.terminal, .terminal > .code {
  color: var(--c-syntax);
  background: var(--c-bg);
  border: 0.4rem solid var(--c-comment);
  border-radius: 1rem;

Debug mode

Draw lines around anything inside .debug-mode. The colour of the lines is red but defers to CSS variable --debug-colour.

You can also add div.debug-info.over and div.debug-info.under inside an element to annotate the debug boxes — though you'll need to make sure to leave enough vertical space that the annotation doesn't overlap the thing above or below it.

…like this!

.debug-mode, .debug-mode *, .debug-mode *::before, .debug-mode *::after {
  outline: 1px solid var(--debug-colour, red);
  position: relative;
.debug-info {
  position: absolute;
  left: 50%;
  transform: translateX(-50%);
  font-family: 'Fira Code', monospace;
  font-size: 1rem;
  white-space: nowrap;
.debug-info.over { top: -2.5rem; }
.debug-info.under { bottom: -2.5rem; }
.debug-info p { margin: 0; }

Department Overview

What would eventually become AWD was formed during the Seventh Occult War when, under O5 command, Dr. Olaf Lunden and several other individuals formed the War-Time Production Division (WTPD). The Division, which included members from both the Foundation and Allied Occult Initiative, began to design and construct paraweapons for use against Obskuracorps. While short-lived, this think-tank of mechanical engineers and occult specialists would produce several anomalous artefacts and weapons that proved extremely useful in the war.

In the advent of the war, it was decided that having a dedicated permanent team for the designing and manufacturing of paraweapons would prove useful. Thus, under the guidance of O5-7, the Department of Anomalous Weapons Development was established in 1947, with Dr. Lunden as its Director. Originally headquartered at Site-6, the beginning years of AWD proved extremely prosperous. While the Foundation itself wasn't involved with any major conflicts at this time, AWD regularly sold its designs and products to both sides of the Cold War for large profits. Dr. Lunden eventually stepped down from his position as Director in 1979, selecting Dr. Felipe Everest as his replacement, who was at the time the Regional Director of AWD in Central America.

Almost immediately there was a noticeable change in AWD. It was at this point that the Headquarters of the Department were relocated to the newly-constructed Area-34, a Foundation facility located in the mountains near San Jose, Costa Rica. Dir. Everest began to slowly cut off the business ties AWD had with the Americans and Soviets, eventually completely cutting off any supply lines in 1988. A focus was put on studying fields of anomalous sciences that were at the time unexplored for potential weaponization. While a myriad of thaumaturgic and ontological paraweapons were still made, this saw the rise of weapons and technology that incorporated more esoteric fields such as the Noosphere, nomenclative anomalies, and conceptual disassociation. While this time also saw a stark increase in the casualties endured during the construction of these prototype weapons, such as in the case of Identity Reassigner, a majority of these weapons proved viable for Foundation use.

It wasn't until 2018 that AWD would receive a new Director. During a visit to Site-01, Dir. Everest's convoy was ambushed by unknown assailants, with him as one of the casualties. It was decided at this time that his son, Dr. Ezra Everest, would inherit the position of Director. While Dr. Everest's tenure as Director has only begun, he has so far followed in his father's footsteps, focusing on developing and designing more experimental weapons while still producing basic weaponry based on the more well-known fields of anomalous science.

Eventually, however, AWD would suffer a major loss in the attempted decommissioning of SCP-6946. The designation given to an eigenweapon constructed by the War-Time Production Board to fight in the Pacific Theatre, the 32nd failed decommissioning attempt of the anomaly would result in a massive loss of equipment and of the anomaly itself. This, combined with the mishandling of SCP-6821 - both of which were directly caused or set in motion by Dr. Ezra Everest - resulted in the mass downsizing and back scaling of the Department. Currently, AWD mostly exists to maintain its preexisting projects and offer weaponry to MTFs for extremely niche situations.

Associated Foundation Sites


The current headquarters of AWD, Area-34 is located in the central mountains of Costa Rica, near the capital of San Jose. Alongside the design, construction, and testing of AWD products, Area-34 also specializes in the response to and containment of anomalies in Central America. Several floors of the facility are dedicated to the storage of non-Foundation para- and eigenweapons, many of which are kept at Area-34 in hopes that study of them may elicit new designs for AWD to use.


The former headquarters of AWD, Site-6 is located in the Norwegian islands of Svalbard. Since its demotion from AWD HQ, Site-6 has mostly served as a storage facility and launching ground for paraweapon testing in the Arctic.


The first storage facility built specifically for AWD use, Site-14 was one of the largest centres of AWD activity in East Europe prior to its destruction. After suffering several system failures and a catastrophic explosion, Site-14 was decommissioned from the Secure Facilities Dossier. As a result of the anomalous phenomena, most likely due to the anomalous artefacts that were on-site during the explosion, Site-14 has become a hotspot for anomalous occurrences.

Associated Mobile Task Forces

Armed Mobile Task Force Gamma-27 ("Breaking and Entering")

A mobile task force whose sole purpose was the destruction of SCP-359 and obtaining access to SCP-359-A, AMTF G-27 received numerous design packets and products from AWD during and prior to the successful decommissioning of SCP-359.

Armed Mobile Task Force Io-27 ("Big Sticks")

A battalion-sized task force stationed at Area-34, AMTF I-27 main duty is to respond to hostile GoI activity in Central America, primarily those in Costa Rica, Panama, and Nicaragua. AMTF I-27 is fully outfitted with prototype AWD paraweapons and body armour. The task force is upheld as an example of the type of technology AWD could produce if given the proper resources.
