# Module:GhbRotation

For use on Grand Hero Battle and possibly other locations later on. This module can be used to output Grand Hero Battle data, including the next rerun date, total number of reruns, and the current active Grand Hero Battle. Currently relevant only to the seven Grand Hero Battles in rotation: Lloyd, Michalis, Xander, Narcian, Navarre, Robin (female), and Ursula.

Only one parameter is used, the name of the relevant Grand Hero Battle:

`{{#invoke:GhbRotation|Michalis}}`

This outputs:

Rerun in rotation 271 times to date
Next rerun: April 30, 2023

```local p = {}

--[[
Functions for each Grand Hero Battle. Lloyd was the first rotation GHB, on
9 February 2018, so he is number 0; the others follow on up to 6 (Ursula).
Then, call the main functions down below.
]]

function p.Lloyd()
return p.getGHBData(0)
end

function p.Michalis()
return p.getGHBData(1)
end

function p.Xander()
return p.getGHBData(2)

return p.getGHBData(4)
end

function p.RobinF()
return p.getGHBData(5)
end

function p.Ursula()
return p.getGHBData(6)
end

--[[
This gets the current Grand Hero Battle, by comparing today's date to
the rotation start date (8 February, 2018).
]]

return curr_ghb
end

--[[
Produce the Grand Hero Battle data; first get the date of the next rerun,
then count how many reruns we've had so far, then check to see
which Grand Hero Battle is currently active.
]]

curr_ghb = p.getGrandHeroBattle()

if( ghb_number <= curr_ghb ) then
