Notes to ease interpretation:

  1. The NatPack Hostel is where most of the NatPackers stayed during the War, while NatPack HQ is the place Natalie was hidden following the events in "Last Knight." The two were sometimes confused, but they are supposed to be entirely different locations.

  2. "The Guy" is Marcus Cole from the series Babylon 5, played by Jason Carter. The rules of the War stipulated no "real" crossovers and no mention of real people who hadn't given permission in advance--thus, "The Guy Look-alike."

  3. The "Wetmore" family was introduced in War 5, and the family members were used in War 7 for much the same reason as The Guy Look-alike.

  4. "Scott Whats-his-name" is Scott Wentworth, the actor who plays Detective Kermit Griffin on Kung Fu: The Legend Continues.

  5. The Cult of Skinner is a group of mainly NatPacker X-Files fans who particularly enjoy the character of Assistant Director Skinner, played by Mitch Pileggi.

  6. The "shy and retiring" dress was so dubbed due to a comment made by GT about the dress Amparo wore to see Deborah Duchene in "A Winter's Tale." Needless to say, the dress was anything but. The term has since come to include any such dress.

  7. The "Zine Organizer's Whip" is a hypothetical instrument employed to urge the Pack members to contribute to the zine they were working on at the time, NatPackers' Revenge.

  8. The NatPackers spend most of the War under the influence of various whammies, which eventually becomes clear near the end. To help keep track, however, here is a list of the whammies that were claimed.
