That means that in a rough test of popularity, Google says Star Wars is 81 times more popular than the ''Realms'', so Wookiepedia should have 81 times more articles. Relatively speaking, our 1500 articles means we're doing pretty well!

|Thanks for your support. Yeah, we are doing well. But it would be most fair to compare rpg to rpg. We win there. # of novels to # of novels, we win there too! We can't really compare all of sw to all of fr, right? But sw wins with films. We win with crpgs and videogames. If we can't win, I still say FR is better. For instance, the books aren't churned out five per week like SW is. (No offense to sw fans here; I used to like sw myself.) I mean, the quality of the last ten sw novels is definitely falling, because I've been reading. I don't read much fr, but I play dungeons and dragons a lot.

You know, I can't help but feel a bit jealous. Wookieepedia has 45,000 articles... about. I think that we have a better topic, Faerun, that is, and I'm working as hard as I can. I've read up and now I've read 8 FR books. I can't help but want to have a higher "score" of articles than they do. It's not that I hate Wookieepedia, it's just I love this wiki's topic.

LOL just how many Star Wars fans are there? How many FR fans? Let's take on a smaller wiki. =)

Well, this is not just FR, but counts as D&D. I'd say it is, as for fans, very well matched. DrizztTheSlayer 02:10, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
