So I haven't found anywhere on the net that has succinct descriptions of all 162 tritypes.

Using the available sources, including the fantastic thread on PerC by the inestimable madhatter, I've drawn up my own list of descriptors and brief descriptions.

Apart from the Fauvres, who appear to keep their findings in house, there is not much of substance available. Therefore a lot of this is necessarily guesswork, but without putting something like this in the public domain for critiquing, it is difficult to advance my knowledge.

Still a work in progress, which I hope to refine over time.

Any thought or builds are welcome.
