##Images
There is an uploader tool that may be used to attach images. Generally, any publicly accessible image URL may be embedded.

![alt text]( “an optional caption”)

 ![alt text](<img src='/uploads/default/original/1X/4d3f3307d234a22f2f9c0ac8ce049397ed1921f8.png'> "an optional caption")
[img]/uploads/default/original/1X/4d3f3307d234a22f2f9c0ac8ce049397ed1921f8.png[/img]
<img src='/uploads/default/original/1X/4d3f3307d234a22f2f9c0ac8ce049397ed1921f8.png'>

If you need to specify image dimensions, the <img> html tag may be used:
alt text

<img src='/uploads/default/original/1X/4d3f3307d234a22f2f9c0ac8ce049397ed1921f8.png' alt="alt text" height=30 width=120/>

#Colors
BBCode color tags may be used, allowing specifying the color by RGB hex

[color=#900]Colors[/color]
[color=#44588c]BBCode color tags may be used, allowing specifying the color by RGB hex[/color]

Spoilers

Spoiler text can be marked off and will be blurred. Users will have to click on the spoiled text to read it.

Warning This does not conceal spoiler text from notification emails, at present.

Kalak gets himself killed at the end of The Verdant Passage

This also works for images

alt text

[spoiler]
Kalak gets himself killed at the end of *The Verdant Passage*

Tables

There is not yet any special syntax to make table entry easier (there are open feature requests for this), but HTML tables may be inserted and will be rendered:

Level BAB Features
1 +1 Weapon Proficency, Armor Proficency
2 +2 Bonus Feat
