I went through and looked for tags with no usage guidance/blank wiki excerpts having at least 10 questions on the site. Here they are:

If you volunteer to fix one or more of these, just leave an answer documenting your changes.

    \$\begingroup\$ the Bloodline one warrants separate action - there is a VtM question among the Sorcerer ones. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Aegis seems to have a large number of "missing" questions under its fold, that might help to dish out a good tag. \$\endgroup\$

I've added usage guidance for the following tags in that list:

For questions related to special bloodlines (such as vampiric, draconic, etc) and gameplay or narrative features related to them.

For questions about the Inquisitor, a Pathfinder 1e divine class.

(All 16 questions in this tag are also Pathfinder 1e questions; we can update if/when there's another kind of Inquisitor people begin asking about)

for questions about specifics of using move actions, in games where that's a component of the action economy.

In the D&D and Pathfinder family of games, the Immediate Action is an action that takes place nearly-instantaneously. In the context of D&D 4e, this is in reference to immediate interrupts and reactions, which are triggered actions.

In D&D 4e, the use of immediate actions is exclusively in the form of reactive, triggered moves. For example, opportunity attacks are an immediate interrupt; so is timely dodge. I don't know if that's also the case in D&D 3.5e and Pathfinder 1e, but if so this description could be massively simplified.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Note that there are already separate tags for [immediate-interrupt] and [immediate-reaction]; that said, there are some D&D 4e questions that use the [immediate-actions] tag. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ "reactive, triggered moves" perfectly describes Pathfinder's concept, though AoO is a different beast there. Still, I think the hoped for simplification is perfectly appropriate, as long as it doesn't explicitely mention attacks of opportunity. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ D&D 3.5e and Pathfinder don’t always have immediate actions necessarily be triggered; some immediate actions are simply immediate actions because that lets you do them whenever you like. However, those are a small, small minority (<10% I’d guess), so I think the simplification is still fine. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Thanks for the confirmation! I've simplified the tag summary a bit further then, viewable on the tag page. \$\endgroup\$ Aug 12 at 12:31
