I thought Spelljammer was a seperate campaign setting from Forgotten Realms. Johnnyriot999 05:26, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

It is, but so is Kara-Tur, the Hordelands, Al-Qadim and Maztica. We have information on those, why not use the info on Realmspace from Spelljammer? hash
Although Kara-Tur, Al-Qadim and Maztica are recognised as being part of the Forgotten Realms setting, despite being branded differently. Can the same be said of the Spelljammer content? Fw190a8 15:49, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
Well, this is an encyclopedia of all things related to the Forgotten Realms. We've already set a precedent for utilising Realms information from non-Realms specific products I don't see what's so different about this. Check here for guidelines. hash
Seems fine to me, on those grounds. Fw190a8 16:34, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
My concern is that this content is going beyond our scope. Kara-Tur, Al-Qadim and Maztica exist entirely within the Realms, even if they are branded differently. Spelljammer includes the Realms but also goes beyond them, while also being branded differently. I think including material that is beyond the Realms, that is Abeir-Toril and its continents, is like going beyond the reach of what this wiki sets out to do. Johnnyriot999 23:45, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
The wiki is a repository of knowledge, a reference tool and a DM helper for those wanting to play an FR game. The information about the other planets in Realmspace is kept small by the authors as they by no means would represent an entirely new campaign setting. Nor is Realmspace that big, relatively speaking. The Realmspace category will serve purely as a starting point for DMs interested in Spelljamming and as an interesting bunch of information for loremasters. Hope this helps. hash
Okay, okay obviously I wont win this argument. But can I ask that we dont create articles about other campaign settings, such as this one, or mention them (unless in articles about authors or wotc). We dont have pages for any of the other settings and I dont see how they can be a tool for DM's looking for info on the Realms. Johnnyriot999 22:03, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
I wouldn't have written a page like that. If I was writing a page titled Spelljammer I would have written a brief description of what one was, rather than a description of the campaign setting. But yes, I agree with you on your last point. hash
Cool, I'll nominate it for deletion then. Johnnyriot999 22:40, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

KudosEdit

I just want to say this is one of the most interesting and well-researched articles I have seen on the wiki. Considering how much care and attention-to-detail have gone into it, I TOTALLY change the opinion I had 11 years ago. Ruf (talk) 07:48, January 29, 2018 (UTC)
