At the moment, we have articles for Dragon magazine and Dungeon magazine, but I was considering the idea of creating articles for each issue of Dragon and Dungeon magazine. This would allow us to list the contents of each magazine, provided they were either Realms-specific, or core rules-specific.

At the moment, we don't have very much information on all of the authors who have contributed to the Realms, and I'd like to convey a sense of the scale of the effort on behalf of all of the many writers that have been contributing to the Realms over the years.

The majority of these authors have contributed via writing articles for Dragon or Dungeon magazine, so having a decent listing of articles would be beneficial.

I'm not interested in providing a complete article reference or author reference for the two publications, since there are plenty of other sites that can provide this, and can do it a lot better than we can. Therefore I'm advocating that the focus should be on Realms- or core-specific information.

No objections in a while, so I have created Dragon magazine 272 and Dungeon magazine 79 to show how I imagined these type of articles would look. Note there's only mention of articles if they actually apply to the Realms, so Greyhawk, Dragonlance and everything else is left out.

Of course, there are a lot of issues to burn through, but this can take place over time.

Sorry, I'm not sure what you're asking!

Is that what I the protocol is? Are we only adding issue that have forgotten realms content?

Hmm, it hadn't occurred to me that an issue might both...

  • ...have no Realms-specific information
  • ...have no core information that is applicable to the Realms

I suppose, in that case, we ought to put a stub article in place to say "this issue has no relevant content" just so people aren't left wondering why the article doesn't exist. Do you have any examples of issues where this applies?

no, not yet...So can I just start from #1? :)

There don't seem to be any particular objections to creating one article per Dragon/Dungeon issue, so I'd say go ahead, sure. Please be sure to check out Dragon magazine 272 and Dungeon magazine 79 for examples!
