Let's go crazy.

After an idea from Christopher_Rowe and a copy of Kuje's community project, I propose to create an index of the 4E Realmslore.

You will find the sources which could be referenced in the following thread : Post-Spellplague bibliography

I call volunteers to write below what book they're ready to read, or re-read and quote the specific Realms entries.

I will begin with the Swordmage novel.

As I wrote in Christopher's thread, I propose to make it within an Excel file which columns could be :
1st column : topic (geography, character, race, organization,...)
2nd column : the entry itself (Hulburg, Geran, swordmage, Crimson Chain,...)
3rd column : the source book (Swordmage novel)
4th column (and following ones) : the page(s) where the entry was (were) found.

Among our scribes, are there any who are currently reading an 4E sourcebook, adventure or novel and who would be prepared and ready to collect names of the characters, localities, events, aso that they meet during their reading ?

If someone has an idea about what the Excel file should look like, please just tell me.
I will be able to send the Swordmage reporting terms file to the volunteers by the end of the week.

No new data added, just updated the fact that Epic Faerûn , Ecology of the Genasi , Primordial Paths, Children of Darkness and Hall of the Frostmaiden (all from Dragon #367) have been referenced in the index project.

I know that but I'd like to be up-to-date in the 4E Realms, even if it's unfashioned to like 4E Realms. I like to believe that these Realms will come back to what Realms fans like and then we will join back

I'm used to. I'm a newly father (for the second time) too. I'm in the Army and my working days are long too. I'm studying towards a professional exam (40 candidates ... 2 people needed !),...
No probs Ed.
My biggest concern is about the novels.
I wont have time enough to read all of the post-SP ones. moreover, to read in English language is not so easy ti understnad all the feelings the author wants us to understand.

Just to precise that I've finished the referencing of the all articles from Dragon #366 and Mistshore novel.

I will try to reference the Dragon #367 on next week.
I will need more time to begin Blackstaff Tower.

N.B. : I stopped to enter the "topic" column data.
My file only provides the keyword, the source and the page.

The referencing of the Rose keep enclave article belongs to the past !
(I'm wondering if this translated expression from a French one has any sense in English?)
I'm now checking the Gontal article.


I added the list of the 4E sources (because Christopher_rowe seems to be back exclusively to the gleemax forums).

And I still look for volunteers to check these books and search for FR specific terms...

Thanks for reading fellow scribes
Fillow Posted - 07 Oct 2008 : 21:09:50
"Magic in the Forgotten Realms" from Dragon 362
"Year of the Ageless One" from Dragon 362
"Spellplague: The Wailing Years" from Dragon 362
"Backdrop: Cormyr" from Dragon 365

... have now their entries registered in the project.

Still no volunteers to take part ?
...

Allright, I go to pick up the entries from the Rose Keep

I just finished the Thunderspire adv. FR conversion.
No volunteers yet to take part ?

I go and read and pick the Countdown to the Realms part I, Year of the Ageless One.

EDIT : Countdown to the Realms part I, Year of the Ageless One is out.
Beginning Countdown to the Realms part II, Magic in the FR.

Do not be in a hurry so much to take part...

I've just began the Keep on the Shadowfell: Forgotten Realms Conversion.

I (and Kuje !) found few topics to sort the entries :
- characters
- locations (cities)
- areas (regions)
- places (like Standing stone)
- geography (rivers, mountains, ways...)
- events
- year
- deities
- symbol
- devises
- quotations
- cosmology
- organizations
- companies
- races
- time

Which one could we add ?


EDIT : finished the entries making with Excel from the Keep on the Shadowfell: Forgotten Realms Conversion.
