Player-owned templates
Whenever a player creates a custom game, WarLight will ask them if they wish to save their settings as a template. If players choose to do so, they can give the template a name and description and those settings will be saved along with their account. They can then create games using this template in the future. All templates have a link which allows players to share their templates.
 Built-in templates
There are 20 templates that are hard-wired into WarLight. These cannot be modified by players, although players can customize them and save the modified settings as their own template.
